Apologies for my outburst, but the last thing I needed after weigh in was our local ice-cream van stuttering down the road with his annoying tinny speakers blaring out old-skool tunes! Does he not realise that his little van was at risk of being hijacked by an irritated Slimming World follower? If he had known
Right then – I am going to sing the praises of herbs and spices! A simple basic weekly shop of vegetables, pulses, grains and meat can be transformed into a variety of wonderful dishes that will take your mind on Worldwide travels…and no, I haven’t lost the plot. Just think for a second of a
Before you weather enthusiasts get all excited, let me quickly set you straight – this is not a post about the weather…more about my internal climate…or trumpet trooosers! And if you are easily offended, or do not at all like childish and idiotic behaviour at times…then check in tomorrow when normal service will be resumed!
Okay – so I know that some of you will roll your eyes at me (again!) when I talk about this…but if I was asked to share only one piece of advice with my fellow losers then it would be this – WRITE IT DOWN! And you can stop rolling your eyes – it really

But I have been able to improve my self control over the past year and so I was really interested
Regular readers will have heard of the antics of my four year old niece – who is still at nursery but sounds as if she belongs at university sometimes. She is such a wise old thing and can hold such in-depth conversations with you that it is sometimes easy to forget she only a tiny
My consultant read yesterday’s blog and discovered that I was feeling a bit ‘meh’ and sent me a couple of lovely texts last night! At which point I was in bed reading as I was in the mood where I could quite happily have eaten the take-away menus, let alone the food they could deliver.
This morning I woke up bright and breezy and feeling good. I headed off to weigh in with a little spring in my step and was happy to step on the scales – I wasn’t even annoyed at a 1.5lbs loss, even though I had hoped for more…yes, I know I am a greedy mare!
As you know, I am not generally a fan of shows like ‘Embarrassing Fat Bodies’ or ‘Supersize vs Superskinny’ or ‘Big Body Squad’, for a number of reasons really. Rather than raising understanding, I think they can foster a kind of hatred almost…making people resent the fact that their taxes fund obesity surgery, equipment to
