Whether you are new to the Slimming World plan or desperately trying to get back on track this article is a must read. Full of top tips and motivation to help you celebrate a new decade and a new you!!
Hello to you all 🙂 I truly hope you are healthy and well. I find myself saying “Is it really January again?” I so badly want to wish you my normal Happy New Year but in all honesty “happy” sounds so deflated right now. What I will wish you is a peaceful New Year full of kindness and health.
2020 was a tough year for us all and weight loss almost feels so trivial compared to some of the problems we are facing everyday. But I spent almost the whole of 2020 making the excuse, “but were on lockdown so it’s okay to scoff everything in sight”. Sadly though that excuse can only work for so long.. especially considering it looks like we may spend most of this year in and out of Lockdown too. So, it’s time to crack on, knuckle down and get some of this Lockdown weight off. Who’s with me?
January is a crazy time for the blog so let me take this opportunity to welcome any new subscribers and wish everyone luck on your weight loss journey, whether you are new to Slimming World or simply just jumping back on the wagon everyone is welcome here.

4. Is Slimming World Really Worth It?
The key thing here is you want to lose weight and I am not trying to sell a diet to you. I am just writing down my experiences and opinion on the plan. The fact is that if you really want to lose weight you can do it by eating less and moving more. But some of us need a plan to follow and the support from others. If that’s what you are looking for then Slimming World is definitely for you.
5. Slimming World & Dieting On A Budget | How To Save Money
I often see people saying they have to give up Slimming World because it’s costing them too much or they can’t afford to buy fresh healthy food etc. I do agree to some extent.. a pack of chocolate bars is always cheaper than a punnet of Raspberries. A frozen pizza £1… cooking a whole meal from scratch is always going to be more expensive. But the health benefits of changing your lifestyle will be worth it in the long run. So take a look at my Slimming World money saving tips.

Breakfast is the first and best meal of the day. So many people I know skip breakfast and honestly I am not quite sure how they manage it. Every morning my tummy is grumbling and if I had to wait until lunch time to eat I don’t think I could concentrate.

9. Slimming World Fails
Slimming World is a plan, with rules.. and as much as some people believe rules are made to be broken, there are only so many rules you can break before you are “off plan” and gaining again. Slimming World have professional dieticians who work hard all year round to make sure that we are getting the best nutritional advice so why would we want to go against what they recommend? Also one of the things I cannot seem to get my head around is, why pay all of that money to attend a group or be a member online, only to go against what you are meant to be doing?
