"Diet" my other half gasped, " do we really need to eat all that rabbit food"?
"Yes " I said, we're both overweight and unhealthy. I'm going to join Slimming World, the food is supposed to be really tasty and easy.
So off I went.
Yes I was nervous and anxious, but I needn't have been. I got such a warm welcome and instantly loved it. It looked too good to be true. So many free foods to fill up on and I could even enjoy a glass of wine.
The first recipe I made was devilled cottage pie
"Wow" said my husband. This is amazing, I love it. Maybe this isn't going to be so bad after all".
8 months later, I had lost 3 stone and so had my husband . We're healthier and happier too.
There are so many delicious, healthy meals that we both enjoy. The recipes are so easy and tasty. And there's plenty of cookery books and recipes online.
I enjoyed the weekly meetings and the help and support I got from the consultant and other members. I was never judged and my weight was never disclosed.
Last July our lovely consultant retired and our group had to finish. So many of the group members said I should think about doing it my self, and inspire others from my own journey.
And that's where my other journey began. I reopened the group last November and it's the best thing I ever did. Our lovely Thursday morning group is amazing. Last month they lost a massive 15 stone between them. I'm so proud of them and I am blessed to be helping them along their journey.
Research shows that 62% of adults are obese in the uk and it's the biggest cause of cancer after smoking. It is also preventable. A healthy diet can seriously reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease and diabetes.
This year we are celebrating 50 years and there's so much going on locally and nationally.
In March it's the Slimming World clothes throw where members donate the clothes that are too big for them to Cancer Research. Last year it raised a massive 3 million pounds.
Slimming World is the most successful slimming organisation in the U.K. with a healthy eating plan that is easy, safe and achievable.
So make that change, get healthier and happier and make a difference. Let 2019 be your year.
Dream, Believe, Achieve......
