I have set a goal to take care of myself in 2014. One of those ways, is to lose weight. 50lbs of weight, to be precise.
Losing weight this year is a big deal for me.
I desperately want to look and feel better, and so, on 3rd January, I signed up to my local Slimming World class.
And as I quickly discovered, Slimming World’s Extra Easy plan is, well… extra easy!
In the past, one of my biggest challenges with losing weight was finding foods the whole family can enjoy. I tell you, the relief was huge when I discovered all the foods you can enjoy. Proper meals with proper food. Check out the steak and chips above!
And as a girl who loves her daily glass of wine, I love the daily Syns allowance to spend on treats… glass of wine, nibble of chocolate or another favourite indulgence.
Slimming World group members also get automatic free access to their members’ website, Lifeline Online, which features hundreds of delicious recipes, tips and inspiration. There’s also a free phone app which has proved invaluable at the supermarket for checking Syn values. (I cannot believe just how much hidden sugar is in some so-called health foods. Yikes!).
10 days in and I’m feeling very confident and motivated to lose weight in 2014. Our group has an awesome Consultant (Hi Susie! ) and I’m really excited about this journey. Oh, and after my first weigh-in, I’m already 3lbs down. Yay! If you’ve been considering starting your own weight loss journey this year, Slimming World would be a great way to start!
