Hi there, Thank you for stopping by! I’m Kirsty, a 35 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 so 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.
