Although we hadn't really strayed too much from the Slimming World straight and narrow, after our holiday in France in May we decided to go back to start again. For me the support is okay but what really makes me try harder is that I have to pay to be weighed and get that support. TBH the organiser of our local group, Kirsty, is very nice and helpful, and of course supportive.
So last Thursday after missing three weeks, luckily all of them we hadn't paid for, we went..... With two weeks in Florida behind us I had expected to have put on quite a bit of weight. After all, the portion sizes are vastly greater than here in Europe. We soon learned to only have main course and no starters. This also extended to no desserts either.
Hardly any ice-creams but we did have bagels, two a day for breakfast reduced to one and a half later, and peanut butter every day for breakfast.
On the scales Claire lost (!) and I put on 1.5lbs! That's even with a day of no food after my "Sick Man Blues" adventure trip around London's hospitals a few days earlier.
