so all morning i’ve been listening to this debate on the radio about slimming world. as you all know i joined slimming world 2 months ago. and i’ve lost 13.5 pounds in 2 months. it works. it really works. it is the first thing which has truly worked for me. and i make no bones about that. the presenter on the radio show i am listening to is being very negative about it though. he said it sounds like the groups are like AA. i know i shouldnt let it bother me. he probably hasnt a clue what he’s talking about. he had this lady on that writes a blog she is from the UK. and her blog is mostly about going through the menopause but she was talking about slimming world in it and her experience of it and how she hated going to the groups. honestly? i find the group really supportive. and i need the support. if i dont make myself accountible then i wont lose the weight. its as simple as that. i like the fact that i have the support of other group members, we all inspire each other. we share recipes, we share tips. we share the common bond that we all want to lose weight. we all are there for the exact same reason. the presenter on the show was saying how the fact that we called the high risk foods syns is bad. that is immediately denotes that you’ve sinned, commited a huge crime and eaten foods you shouldnt have eaten. i was so glad that a few of the slimming world consultants came on and backed up the plan. because it really does work. the proof is in my group. one lady has lost 5 stone, thats 70 pounds in six months. so tell me thats not working. i suppose i’m just put out by the negativity i heard on the radio this morning.
