Hi, I’m Kirsty, web designer, author and recipe developer here at Fatgirlskinny.net.
I am obsessed with all things food, sadly this is probably the reason I got to my heaviest weight in 2015 and I realised something had to change.
Slimming World was a long overdue change for me when I joined in January 2015. During my 30 something years I have tried (and failed) at many diets and crazy weight loss plans. Any weight lost was always gained again with more added on top…. But for me Slimming World was a change of lifestyle rather than a diet plan and it helped me to lose over 4 stone. There is no calorie counting, nothing is out of bounds and there are unlimited recipes to be created or the naughty ones can be adapted to suit.
I am a mum of 2 boys and you would think running around after them would keep me trim. But with children come bad habits! Trips to McDonalds, a sneaky fish finger whilst cooking their tea, finishing their meals for them!
During Covid-19 lock down (2020 – 2022) I am sad to admit I have gained over half of the weight I lost previously. So the struggle really is real!
I am not here to tell you how easy it is, because it isn’t! I am just here to share my struggle, help others if I can and share some yummy recipes. You will find that most of my recipes are suited to the Slimming World plan. But with calorie content being important when following other plans the recipes can also be perfect for Weight watchers, Slim fast follows etc etc.
Whatever journey you are on I wish you luck and I hope you enjoy following my journey too.
