Lose weight the lazy way...

Disadvantages: You will need to buy new clothes.
If you want to lose weight fast to fit into that tiny party dress then Slimming World will not be for you. However if you want to steadily lose weight and keep it off (or are just a bit lazy like me) then check out your local group.
The hardest thing for me on my Slimming World journey was plucking up the courage to sign up. It is undeniable that the thought of going into a room of complete strangers to discuss how fat you are is terrifying. I know I was certainly pooping my pants. However if you can get over this first hurdle the rest is easy.
The diet plan I followed was called Extra Easy and to be honest it is. I found that there was very little I couldn't have as long as you made it yourself you could have anything from fish and chips to spaghetti bolognaise. It may seem laborious to be making everything yourself but it stops you being scuppered by all of the bad things that manufacturers of pre-packed food hide in their stuff. What I found was that I didn't have to change my menu, just the way I prepared it. I have found that Slimming World has given my a new joy for food and for cooking. The diet has introduced me to foods I would never have tried on my own - Quark anyone??? If you do have a hankering for something a little bit naughty there is plenty of room in the diet for the occasional indulgence. It is all about choosing the healthier option.
I have also tried Weight Watchers and this may just have been the group I went to but I found them very preachy and there main agenda seemed to be flogging the myriad of Weight Watchers branded food. Slimming World is the complete opposite - there is no hard sell.
The only downside I have found to being on Slimming World is that it is costing me a fortune in new clothes. for the last year I have had to change a big part of my wardrobe at least every 3 months as the weight is dropping off.
I hope you read this and give it a go - I have never looked back.
Summary: Fun, easy weight loss
