“Been with SLIMMING WORLD for just over 6 months now...”

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/>
<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

Written on: 24/01/2011

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!!

Written on: 05/12/2010 by Bertie1889 (1 review written)

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

Written on: 05/11/2010

Pros: Healthy way to lose weight, can save syns for special ocassions or weekend if you want to, can eat normal food you can buy from supermarket so can be cheap, can fill yourself up on free foods, does work if stuck to.
Cons: Can get boring if you don't have the time/money to make up more imagitive meals.

Written on: 04/11/2010

I have tried almost every diet known to man/woman. I am 55 and have been following the Slimming World plan for 8 weeks and have lost 24lbs. At my first meeting I said it was impossible to eat this much food and lose weight. Well proved myself wrong. Don't feel fixated with food as there is always something 'free' to eat. Feel well on myself and even eating out is not a problem. Feel for once that this is achievable. Give it a go you've nothing to lose but extra pounds!… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/12/2010

What a load of old tosh!!!! I have eaten everything in sight before finding the SYN value, what a weak lame excuse for not having a backbone. It isn't easy to lose weight, or at least that is what I thought. Minus 37lbs in 8 weeks, but not just the Slimming World plan to thank for that, as have been exercising and had started before joining a class (about 2 weeks earlier). SW actually promote exercise, but they can't take credit for getting me started.
<br/>
<br/>Hopefully this very poor review won't stop overweight people with even the slightest amount of will power from getting started on what is an easy to follow and sensible plan of food optimising.

Written on: 29/10/2010

I joined Slimming World because I wanted to loose the 2.5 stones I'd gained by eating the same portions as my partner (a male, and over a foot taller than me!) over a 12 months period! I didn't want to spend my life counting numbers like Weight Watchers as I don't think this is a natural way to live. Slimming World worked very well in the early months, it's basically common sense, the 2 stones came off steadily over a year and that's great, however, getting this last half stone off is a real… Read Full Review
