I have been trying to lose 2 stone for a while now. Each time I make a good start and then I end up falling off the wagon. This time is different though. I have a couple of friends who said to me about slimming world. I thought I would give it a try to go along to the classes and see how it goes.
Last Thursday I took myself along to the class, very nervous as I was on my own and knew no one. I walked in and I must admit everyone there was a lot larger than myself and I thought they would be looking at me, thinking why I was there. I stayed for the whole class and there was one other lady who was starting the same week as me. We got our books and everything was explained how it works, how we eat and record our food diary. To start with they ask you to try to lose 10% of your body weight. If you lose 10% it is supposed to lower your blood pressure and make you all round a lot healthier. After 10% you then set your target weight.
I came away very excited. This is the first time I have been along to any diet class and I think I will succeed this time as I have the support of the other members there each week.
So far since Thursday I have lost 2.5 lbs of which I am so happy with. I am hoping to of lost 4lbs by Thursday this week which is my weigh in day. I pay £4.95 each week and think it is really worth while. Both of my friends have already over a stone in under 5 weeks and I am really proud of both of them.
