I've tried lots of diets. LOTS. I've tried low carb, calorie counting, Weight Watchers numerous times since I was a child really. I've been conscious of my weight for as long as I can remember.
2 weeks ago I joined Slimming World on the Extra Easy plan. It all sounded very complicated to begin with but I read lots about it before the first class and have got used to it all quite quickly (well the theory of it at least!)
Week 1 weigh in - 3lbs LOST
This first week wasn't too bad. I was mainly trying to get my head around syns and free food and super free/speed food etc. I am still referring to syns as points a lot of the time (grr Weight Watchers) but the week went ok and I was pleased with my loss as I'd went over my syns on a couple of days.
Week 2 weigh in - 1.5lbs LOST
This week was terrible. I ate out 6 times. I had Indian food, Chinese food, 2 restaurant meals, a McDonalds and a kebab. I truly fell off the wagon but upped the exercise and towards the end of the week I upped my super speed and water intake and it seems to have paid off. I'm a slightly worried I just haven't shown the gain yet, so next week's weigh in might be a killer...
All in all I'm fairly impressed and have lost 4.5lbs in total.
Have you tried Slimming World? I'd love to hear your experiences of this or any other diets/healthy eating regimes you've tried.
