It’s a kind of magic

Magic. Magic. Magic. MAAAGIIIC! Body Magic that is. I have finally started logging my exercise as, although I have been regularly exercising ever since (and indeed before) I joined Slimming World in February, I haven’t been regular or consistent enough to work towards an award. My routine this far has been going running twice a…

A blip on my Slimming World trip

I am cross with myself. I’ve been doing so well with my weight loss until now, right on the brink of comfortably dropping my first dress size and it’s gone slightly to crap over the past fortnight. Last week saw my first gain. A few factors contributed to this. It’s been crazy busy at work,…

An Easter miracle!

So a week ago I embarked on a mission to eliminate artificial sweeteners from my diet to see if this helped with some leg discomfort I have been experiencing.

Another mini goal achieved!

Well I didn’t manage the hoped for one stone award this week, but I am now in the next stone bracket down. Just a little 1/2lb loss this week. I have a work dinner next week with absolutely nothing Slimming World friendly on the menu, so I’m going to have one meal off and eat…
