Slimming World – The Synful, Social Me

This week has been peppered with social engagements and, me being me, I have indulged in the usual style. When at home I have stayed on plan but, whilst out, I have enjoyed the finer things – you know how it is.

Slimming World – Get Organised

I used to believe that keeping a food diary was the only thing required to stay on track, but something that has become of equal importance is meal planning. This is interesting because I don’t often do it and perhaps here lies my problem. I tend to find that my ability to stay on plan and the subsequent impact on my weight loss, is always better when I get organised and am feeling prepared. Unfortunately, this is not a zone that I often appear to be in.

Slimming World – The Fakeaway – Beef & Black Bean

On the basis that this looks the part and being that it is I writing this post, you would be forgiven for thinking that this is a picture of a takeaway. But no, this Slimming World - The Fakeaway, Beef & Black Bean meal is, in fact, a slimming world friendly dish and commonly known as a Fakeaway.
