My Story

Hi there, Thank you for stopping by! I’m Kirsty, a 34 year old English lass living in Scotland with my husband and our 2 cats.

My tipping point was in January of 2015 when I was told by the doctor that I was pre diabetic! I remember sitting in the surgery in tears.. disgusted with myself that I had abused my body so badly. I had no respect for myself whatsoever.. eating junk food, drinking too much on nights out, getting little or no exercise! I looked back on my wedding photos and was so ashamed that I knew I had to do something before it was too late.

Slimming World: On 5th January 2015 with 10 stone 5lb to lose. I was amazed at how much I could eat and how the weight seemed to drop off of quickly. I lost 3 stone 12lb in a year which was slow and steady but I was really proud of myself.
In 2016 I lost a further 8lb.. with gains and losses along the way.
But I am currently half way through 2017 and I have gained 2 stone!
I am doing my best to stay on plan.. and I admit I keep trying other diets but I always come back to SW because in all honesty it just works!




How my life has changed: The best thing for me was in 2016 when we went to Florida and I rode my first roller coaster in 20 years! Not only did I fit into the seat but I remembered how much I used to love theme parks! Also not needing a seat belt extension on flights anymore is amazing 🙂

This blog: I love to help and support other dieters.. this blog is a source of information for Slimming World followers and hopefully followers of other plans too. I am gradually turning this into more a diet hub for many plans 🙂 please watch this space for new and exciting information.

I am not a trained chef but I do love to cook and create new recipes. I just hope you guys enjoy trying my recipes are much as I enjoy creating them.

This is where the magic happens 🙂 I adore my kitchen.. Although I don’t so much enjoy cleaning it afterwards lol.

Feel free to get in touch if you need any advice or just fancy a chat.

Loadsa love

  1. Kirsty, just wanted to say hi and that I’ve just discovered your blog. Well done on your loss and for this website. I’ll keep on reading 🙂

  2. Hi Kirsty, wow you’ve done so well even with the hiccup like you I have about 10 stone to lose, your blog will become my bible me thinks, as I do like to eat out and socialise and have always found it difficult and end up loosing faith and go back to my bad habits. Sam x

  3. Only just discovered your blog and what an inspiration it is. I’ll be following it from now on. I too am a slimming world member and absolutely love the fact that I can still eat my favourite foods. I’ve actually enjoyed making my own versions of some childhood classics such as cottage pie and mum’s burgers. Looking forward to trying a few of your recipes as well.

  4. I joined SW almost a year ago, weighing 12st 7 and lost 1st 9 by february 2017 . Over the past 6 mnths i have piled back on all the weight that i lost, partly due to a breakdown and the drugs that has involved. However i have rejoined SW online and am raring to go. I hadn’t seen your blog before , but it looks extremely useful and right up my street – i am always inventing syn free versions of my favourites ! Thank you and keep up the good work !

  5. Hi Kirsty,
    I have been off and on Slimming world for two and half years, lost 6 stone in the first year, put on two and now I’m back on it.
    You’re blog is like my bible and I share it with everyone I know on a slimming world journey.
    I need the inspiration at the moment as I’m starting to really hate myself and I don’t want to be back where I started.
    Thanks for all the uplifting posts and recipes.
