I tried the 5:2 diet, but my 'normal' days probably couldn't be considered normal for most people. I have also tried calorie counting, which yielded great results but 1000 calories per day just isn't sustainable. I needed something else. I want to eat relatively normally, feel full and still enjoy my hobbies. I need balance in my life!
Lots of my friends at work have lost lots of weight on Slimming World. Emma has just hit two stones, Michelle about three and Corinne a whopping four! They have actually lost my ideal weight between them! Inspired by their success, I'm giving it a bash. I don't want to go to a club and I won't be doing it 100% of the time, but any improvement is a bonus.

I know she won't mind me sharing it because she's done so chuffing well!
All the meals outlined below are healthy versions, but still taste amazing. I generally use 5 of my 15 syns on a Curly Wurly. Sue me. It keeps me sane.
Monday: Jacket potato with one slice of mozzarella cheese (healthy A), mixed veg and 100g of low fat coleslaw (5 syns)
Tuesday: Chicken with homemade spicy wedges and broccoli (all free)
Wednesday: Booth's Cookalong Night - don't know yet!
Thursday: Macaroni Cheese (free - cheese healthy A)
Friday: Chilli with boiled rice (all free)
Saturday: Out with the sibling for tea.
Sunday: Roast turkey with mixed veg and roasties (all free)
If you have tried Slimming World, I'd appreciate any good recipes!
