After what feels like forever, WE ARE BACK!
Life got manic for us both, so we needed some time out from this page. And to be honest, time out from Slimming World entirely.
It just wasn’t working for us like it used to, we would spend weeks on end being SW angels, measuring Healthy Extras, weighing syns etc, and getting very small (if any at all!!) results. We worked on the social team in our class, so it became incredibly hard to be so good and not see the results we wanted, to then weigh Susan (you guys know the type) eat 3 takeaways, a night out on the piss and a trail of chocolate bars and loose 3lb. It just didn’t seem fair, and we soon noticed it completely changed our moods.
This is in no way a bashing to SW, it worked wonders for us both in the past, and the plan itself is fool proof!! But there’s a lot of emphasis on the number on the scales, rather than creating a new lifestyle.
So that’s when we decided we needed change. Maybe one of the reasons SW wasn’t working for us was because we’d got complacent, and felt uninspired. I knew I needed to get my teeth into something else, and act like a brand new member all over again, and after watching @the.lifestyle.hunter
doing so well, we took the plunge and joined WW
My god it seemed SO daunting to make the switch. There’s minimal weighing with SW, but a lot of weighing of foods with WW!!
We joined on a Thursday online, so we could have a mooch of the app over the weekend, and then we went to our local group on the Monday morning. We both left group and said ‘What the F*ck have we done?!’ It seemed impossible. But I kid you not, by Monday night we knew it was the best decision for us!
The app and online support is AMAZING!!! The lifestyle plan suits our lifestyles perfectly. It’s completely changed our mind sets to food, and we find ourselves subconsciously making better choices even when we’re off plan. And the WW workshops hardly focus on the number on the scales, they support you in more ways than you could imagine. (And they only take 30 minutes of your day rather than the 2 hours SW can sometimes take 🙈)
