“5 months in and 5 stones off, and only another 2...”

Written on: 02/03/2011

5 months in and 5 stones off, and only another 2 stones to target, the plan works if you follow it properly, and if you aren't losing weight you need the support of the consultant and the group. Stay to meetings after getting weighed, as if you only want to get weighed, you might as well buy some really good scales. Thing is we know that doesn't work, but the first time we put weight on we stop staying to group or even worse we no longer attend meetings. Use the service you paid for and then… Read Full Review

Been on Slimming World since 4th November 2010 and have lost weight every week and now have my 2 stone award, have been slimmer of week twice and slimmer of month twice, its easy to follow and there are lots of things to eat if you do get hungry. I have only been on extra easy plan, have done SW before when it was red and green only and didn't like it as much but extra easy is what it says on the tim EXTRA EASY… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/02/2011

Slimming world is a fantastic plan to follow - so much less complicated that any of the other group slimming classes out there (believe me - i know) - the plan is so easy to grasp and the losses you can obtain are amazing if you are willing to genuinely think about what you are eating and how you are cooking it! Not for people who eat a lot of processed foods… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/02/2011 by SCRAZZLES (1 review written)

Hi there, I have just been reading all the reviews on this and just wondered if anyone could help me get motivated. Like most women i've done 101 diets and took slimming pills but NO MORE. I need to lose it sensibly and hopefully keep it off. I am only small but just over 11stone (not too big) but need to lose 2 and i'll be really pleased.

I joined sw last year, you know what its like when you go the first week and stay the same and then second I stayed the same. Granted I didn't exercise… Read Full Review

Brilliant diet.If you stick to it rigidly it definately works. I have lost a stone in 4 weeks on red days, green days but haven't cheated as you can eat so much you don't need to! Best of luck

To sound just like me a few months ago, similar weight, build and frustrations! I've joined ww and sw lots of times with varied successes over the years. I can't do ww for very long because I feel too hungry and end up binging! I joined slimming world on new years eve, a few months ago, feeling really fed up with my self. I've lost ten pound in 9 weeks which isn't as fast I'd hoped but I'm more determined than in the past. The difference this time for me is that I stay to the group meetings and have got to know people rather than being anonymous. I had a dodgy couple of weeks where I didn't lose anything and they were really supportive, giving me lots of tips on things to have in the fridge to snack on etc. My advice would be to join a smaller group, one in the day time if you can make it. You get to know the group better and it becomes more like a support network. I've also bought and actually followed the recipe books this time. There's some lovely curry recipes if you want an alternative to a takeaway. I never feel hungry on this diet but have accepted it's not going to fall off over night and I need to be organised and keep chipping away at it! Best of luck! You can do it if I can!

Written on: 16/02/2011 by hannahjoan (1 review written)

I have been a true follower of slimming world for a number of years. Unfortunately for me I have not followed the plan for a while(slimming world is not a diet). and put on 2 stone. In previous years I attended a slimming world class in Yeovil and lost 2 stone (putting me at a happy size 10/12). Unfortunately the cost to attend a class has now increased and now I can not afford to attend. Like most people doing a diet alone and unaided is very difficult to stick to and that's why I thought it a… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/02/2011

Joined SW 4 weeks ago and have so far lost 18lbs, been slimmer of the week once and gained two shiny star stickers to reward my hard work!
If I'm honest you need a PhD to understand the diet - have read and re-read the book and still confused about coloured days and A's and B's. However must be doing something right as it's working!
Would recommend this to anyone and also really encourage you to stay on for the class as its so positive and motivating… Read Full Review

A few months on and I'm now heading for my sixth stone! I still don't fully understand the diet and I'm relieved I'm not the only one given the comments :) I'd recommend SW to anyone - my class is so supportive and I must be doing something right to keep losing week in and week out.

Joined SW last week and must have read the book a hundred times and still find it confusing. I am not considered to be of below average intelligence so I must be missing something. Will find out tomorrow if I have lost any weight and will then know if I have understood Extra Easy diet correctly!

Written on: 02/02/2011 by katmac (3 reviews written)

Been with SLIMMING WORLD for just over 6 months now and in that time have lost a much needed two stone. Weight loss has been progressive, sometimes speedy, sometimes far too slow for my liking, but generally it is going in the right direction, which is Down. Yeye. Some of my colleagues at the same club have lost far more than I have, but suffering from Graves Disease and lack of Vitamin D - did you know it increases weight gain? Betcha didn't, plus aching joints, however another story - I am… Read Full Review

The same thing has happened to me, I followed every thing on the book on the first week and lost 2lb 1/2. Followed every thing again in the second week plus 4 30 mins long aerobics classes and put on 2lb :-(
<br/>I don't understand as everyone else seems to be losing weight in my group.

<br/>Can anyone help with some advice please?

Written on: 27/01/2011

After having two children within 2 years, I've gained a considerable amount of weight. I knew I wanted to lose weight, I just wasn't sure how. I've attended weight watchers before, all the point counting, weighing and having to buy their products quickly meant I lost interest. A friend of mine recommended slimming world so I went along to my first meeting 3 weeks ago. Tonight I've had my 3rd weigh in, and am absolutely thrilled to bits as I've lost a total of 1st + 1.5 lbs!!! I've stuck to the… Read Full Review

I did this diet over 10 years ago and lost 4 and a half stone! over the past few years the weight has slow piled back on. I decided to join again after my 30th birthday and looked at the pics that made me realise I needed to sort this out now! So I joined 13days ago. My first weigh in I lost 4.5lb! It made me realise how great this diet is! I have done weight watchers, cambridge dietand even dodgy slimming tablets from America. BUT now remember the best and only way to lose weight is to follow… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/01/2011

I lost 2 stone 2 years ago and some of it has gradually crept back on but only because I stopped going to the my group and sticking to the plan. I'm now having to lose 101bs, but cheerily, because I know it will work and that I will thoroughly enjoy the food. Also, I think that eating so much fruit and veg gives you lots of energy, so makes the whole process easier and makes you feel more in control. I never thought I would do a diet plan, but I think it's great. Very very supportive too. No… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/12/2010

I have attended Slimmming World twice & will be back in January 2011 for what I hope will be the very last time. It really is an easy plan to follow, just a little open-mindedness and common sense needed.
I must point out that I lost consistently when I was attending, but each time stopped going (and stopped following the plan) through circumstance and my own stupidity, which has meant that the weight has gone back on.
It is important that you realise that although a good sensible eating… Read Full Review

I found this review very helpful because...I am attending my meetings faithfully and very slowly losing.. Life is complicated but this is my retreat and disciplined guidelines to keep focused and on track. I love this program, because it is real and can follow. Love the friends I have made, consider that added bonus!!

Read some amazing poor reviews from people that have quit. Slimming World really works, and is easy to follow. I am a guy and although I have a girlfriend who is following the plan with me, I still cook plenty on my own.

They have tonnes of great recipes, and many healthy meals can be produced in a short space of time. Good to plan shopping in advance for the week, and thus plan out a menu. Stop eating rubbish and look after yourself, and know what you are putting in your body with freshly… Read Full Review
