Back On Plan [THE UNCONVENTIONAL DIARIES]

So last week i finally did it, and re-joined Slimming World. If you are new here then you will not know, but before i got pregnant with Nila, i had lost almost 3 stone and got to my target with Slimming World, so i was eager to join after Nila was born but just did not have the confidence too.



I have been poorly, pretty much since Nila has been born, for nearly 6 weeks now, i have been on endless amounts of different anti-biotics and steroids and i think deep down this has been an excuse for me not to join: i will wait until i am better,i kept telling Scott, but getting better feels like its in the far distance and how many mornings can you have 4 packets of crisps for breakfast!, i know!, i really was letting myself go and i did not know how to pull myself out of it.

Slimming World has never felt like a diet to me, it is a new way of life as there is nothing you can not eat, you have your set 'syns', and you choose how to spend them, so to speak, on what ever you wish- chocolate, alcohol or even a cheeky takeaway, i can not wait for a nando's, just saying..

So after a text off my Slimming World consultant and a little pep talk with myself i bit the bullet and went along to the meeting, I am so glad i did, it really didn't feel like i had been away, baby in tow, i was really nervous taking Nila, the usual mum worries-crying, whinging, poo explosions,luckily we had none of them. There were quite a few new faces, but some old and was lovely catching up with everyone.


The dreaded weigh in!, now i honestly thought i weighed more than i do, so was a little chuffed with that but still have a few stone to hit my new target and i can not wait!. I am going to BlogOnXmas in Manchester next weekend and i intend to eat and drink like there is no tomorrow and enjoy myself, but i will be very good,fingers crossed, for the week and hopefully that will pay off!

If anyone is interested in joining Slimming World and you don't know where to start or are feeling a little nervous, just go for it!.Go online, find the nearest group to you and join, honestly you will not regret it.My Slimming World consultant Clare is absolutely lovely!

If you are a Slimming World member then i would love to know how your journeys going so far, how have you done this week? Any new recipes you have tried out? Let me know.

Thanks For Reading

  2. I've joined twice in the past, but always find something prevents me from getting to group, and I resent having to pay for the weeks I've had to miss! That said, I've taken a lot from it, and we all eat a lot more syn free meals, as well as lots more speed food. Perhaps I should join online instead?

  3. I have seriously been thinking about joining slimming world myself. I have tried weight watchers before but never slimming world. I always seem to find an excuse but I think I too need to just bite the bullet and go along to a meeting. It would be nice to lose some weight before Christmas 😊

  4. I've joined and stopped Slimming World twice now. I've just restarted my journey and planned all my meals for the week - I love the plan as I never feel hungry!

  5. Good for you joining back up! I am at BlogOn next week and I too intend to enjoy myself :) I was the slimmest I've ever been after my son was born, but when I stopped breastfeeding at 12 months old the weight started creeping on and hasn't stopped. I need to act!

  8. My mum did this and it really worked for her. I've been biting the bullet and wanting to start something like this, but my mum was a little bit rude saying I was too slim. I'm tall so you can't see my lumps and bumps but I'm a stone and a half heavier than I was before I had my daughter and I feel so uncomfortable. You make it sound like such a lovely group/community. I really want to give it a go. x

  9. I've never joined slimming world but a lot of my friends have and have done so well. I really enjoy exercise so I ended up doing the Jo Wicks plan after I had my youngest. It's been great for shifting pounds, but so much work to keep on top of.

  11. I've never dieted on slimming world but I know many who have. My best friend has lost over four stone this year on a slimming world plan, it seems to be really easy to follow and I love that you can still eat well, and plenty too!

  13. I hope you start feeling better soon, the year after I had my middle child I had tummy bugs every 3-4 weeks and caught everything going round! Good for you rejoining SW, good luck! See you at BlogOn :)

  14. Hope you achieve everything you want to! I've heard so many good things about Slimming World and am really tempted by it to lose my 'baby weight' :)

  15. I think trying to lose weight with the support of a group behind you must be very motivational. Good luck with your plans! :)

  16. I have never tried Slimming World so I am not really familiar with the program. However, I have started to go to the gym every day and do at least 30 minutes of exercises, hoping to lose a bit of weight. I know diet is also very important so I try to eat as healthy as possible.

  17. I used to do Slimming World a few years ago and loved going to the meetings and all the support. My little boy was only a toddler at the time so it was quite the social outing for me being surrounded by adults rather than at a play group! Although i do not go to the group anymore i still stick to the principles of the eating plan and it has always worked for me x

  18. I did slimming world before having the boys and use to love it. It did wonders and I could really do with getting back to it as well but its fitting it all in that I struggle with. Good luck for your next weigh in x
