NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme – Session 1
I was told back in January that I had a diagnosis of pre-diabetes and was referred to the NHS diabetes prevention programme. Due to the pandemic, they have obviously moved to a not face-to-face model, and I’ve been waiting for a course that didn’t clash with work. I’ve been using the pandemic as an excuse […]
A diagnosis of pre-diabetes
Hey everyone, firstly I must apologise for my radio silence over the past few months. I started this blog with the best of intentions – I was going to lose weight by following Slimming World and document my journey. I was hoping this would keep me accountable and push me to try harder. Unfortunately, life […]
How do you know if you are hungry or just bored? This is something I really struggle with! The great thing with Slimming World is that because there are so many free foods, you can just eat something, but even if it is a free food, it’s still calories that you are taking in which […]

Unfortunately, unless you are a paid Slimming World member, there is no access to a syn calculator. Some bloggers estimate that 1 syn is approximately 20 calories – however this is wildly inaccurate as it doesn’t take into consideration the makeup of the food item eg fats, sugars and so on. It is however somewhere […]

What to do when Slimming World isn’t working!
If you stick to Slimming World properly, week one you have an amazing loss. It’s so exciting and really gives you a kick to keep going. Week two will be less, and you may even have no loss in week three as your body catches up. In the long term though, as long as your […]
Diet Coke Gammon
Diet Coke and Gammon are two of my favourite things in the world and discovering this great recipe which combines the two has been game changing to my Slimming World journey. Iknow a lot of people who say to boil a gammon joint in normal water before cooking it through, but I never bother. I […]
