“Best decision ever!”

Written on: 03/09/2013 by Asherel (1 review written)

I have been a member now for 4 months and I have lost 44lbs so far!! For the first time in years I healthier. Both physically, and because of the easy to follow plan and tremendous support, mentally too. The group I attend are amazing . Each week we celebrate losses and if necessary, commiserate on a few gains. Mostly the gains are expected due to a slight fall off the plan but since the group opened at the end of April we have list more than 100 stones in weight! I know weight loss is a money… Read Full Review

“Almost a stone lost!”

Written on: 15/08/2013

I am now into my third month on the Slimming World plan and I have already lost almost a stone. I had tried Weight Watchers in the past but although similar, never really got on with it. Give Slimming World a try, it might just be the diet for you!… Read Full Review

How rude. That's about a pound a week. That's the healthy way to lose & keep weight off.

“Before deciding against a fabulous lifestyle change....”

Written on: 13/08/2013 by BethBromley (1 review written)

Hello! My name is Beth, and I've been a slimming world member for almost three weeks. I've read a lot of reviews on this site, and have found that many of them are simply criticising Consultants, rather than dismissing the diet itself. Obviously, Slimming World must address issues with Consultants, but it is unfair to put people off a fabulous diet because of certain people. There are three reasons why this diet is wonderful. One. It teaches you where you've been going wrong. Before… Read Full Review

I go to one in waterhead and I got told off in the group last week. Someone was setting mini target, they were going on holiday I gasped cause I thought it was alot that she had set but the holiday was for 2 weeks. I was then told off and felt so small I wanted to die. Others gasped and she never said owt to them. She also told me that I got most votes for woman of the year in my group and I got excited and someone else got it not me

“portion size matters!!!!”

Written on: 02/08/2013 by maise (1 review written)

I am so glad l have found this review page. I have been going to slimmers world on & off for nearly two years only to loose at the most 6lb each time and that is sticking to the programme religiously and exercising on a treadmill 24 mins & swimming every other day. When l weighed in the other day l had gained 3lb by following the extra easy programme and was asked 'what on earth have you been doing'? By the lady who records your weight. (Which is not her place to comment)! This was not said… Read Full Review

I agree with you 100%. I followed this plan to the LETTER. I printed off my food plan every day and showed it my consultant every week. No one could work out why I was putting weight ON. It works for some people, although how I don't know, but it didn't work for me. It was so demoralising. So now I'm with WeightWatchers. What a difference!! In my first week I lost six pounds!!! I lost NOTHING with SW, not an ounce. You are quite correct, you do still need to watch your portion sizes. However with SW your lead to believe you can eat as much as you want of *free foods*, and *pile your plate high* and you will lose weight!! Rubbish. I ate lots of ruit because most of it is super speedy, and then got told to cut down!! What the hell DO they want you do to? Never again, it's WW all the way for me from now on. Best thing ever.

“RUBBISH”

Written on: 22/07/2013

I joined Slimming World because it seemed too good to be true. You could eat all this food and still lose weight. I stuck to it 200%. I filled in my food diary on-line with free food like your supposed too and showed my consultant. I did everything right. I lost NOTHING in 4 weeks. Not a thing. I'd been to my doctor and got weighed and according to their scales I'd lost weight, but on SW scales they said I hadn't. You can't question the scales because they are always right apparently. Never… Read Full Review

Unbeknown to me,my slimming world consultant failed to enter my target weight on his computer. When I reached my target weight of 10 stones 7 pounds, I missed a week and when I returned on Monday, the computer asked me for £9.90.I explained to the lady on the computer that I had reached my target weight and she sent me on my way to be weighed and said she would sort it out with the consultant. This evening, the consultant rang me at home and I can only say I was flabbergasted by his attitude… Read Full Review

Name and shame the consultant and their area - as there are some great ones - and some really awful ones - this one deserves closing down as their success is only down to goodwill and commitment from their clients.

I'm sure they wouldn't. You'll always find somebody who doesn't take responsibilty for his own oversight.
However, the thing is, Slimming World system works! My wife goes along, steps out and comes back, e.g. after Xmas, and I lose weight as well! Without any deprivation or feeling I'm / we are on a diet...
There are usually a number of groups around, so I'd look up another one nearby, and try them out.

“Advised to stop eating fruit??”

Written on: 11/07/2013

I have been going to slimming world now for 2 months, weight loss at first was great. I struggle with my diet as I cant eat gluten, onion, hot spicy food, or dark green veg. I rely on fruits as a snack at work but stick to melon, apples and strawberries (the SS choices). I recieved a text today from our group leader saying "try n stop the snacks even if they r fruit ... nothing tastes as good as being slim feels" I was quite shocked at this cavalier approach to slimming and going against the… Read Full Review

I joined slimming world and like the diet very easy (extra easy). the Consultant i find to be lazy and not inspiring if there are no new joiners. she will ignore you and sit with arms folded doing nothing. today when i weighed in she sat whilst one girl took the money and then ran over to serve us on the snacks! whilst another girl weighed us in. She completely ignored us! and did not atempt to help. if she has this spare time could she not enage with the customers? if you stay behind the… Read Full Review

I found the same - the consultant was really disinterested - I went to the class in Mosspark. The consultant always had her children there and it was a bit of a rabble. The children would also stand at the scales and watch you get weighed. I'm a mum myself but thought this was very unprofessional and also off-putting.

I looked for another class and happier there.

“very expensive way to get wrongly weighed !”

Written on: 07/05/2013

I started 3 weeks ago and each week the scales have been wrong. Last week everyone had gained weight in the entire group, we complained and was assured the scales were correct. This week everyone lost 10 to 12 pounds! again we were assured this was right because they were new scales from head office. Later we were weighed again and I went from loosing 8lb to gaining 1 1/2lb. Extremely disappointing all round. I complained to the area manager who was visiting only to be told it is not about… Read Full Review

Oh thank god I have not been imagining things, this very issue has been bothering me because I suspected on several occasions that the scales at SW were not correct. The problem is if you question the scales and have been recorded as either having gained or 'maintained' you are accused of sour grapes. 'The scales never lie' apparently....

“I love slimming world!!”

Written on: 30/01/2013

Hello all :) I've just completed my first week doing slimming world and I have lost 5 1/2 lb!! I could not believe it!! And the reason why I couldn't believe it is because I've eaten so well. I wouldn't say I have pigged out but I really have eaten a lot of food. I have been cooking my food from scratch and the difference in taste is amazing. I know some people say that having to cook a lot of food puts them off but it's easy when you get into it. I have a job and four kids and I can do it, I… Read Full Review
