Im a 29 year old 15 1/2 stone mane and my civil partner was nearly 20 stone and we decided to join Slimming World in Peterborough on recommendation from a friend who had lost over 2 stone. We have been for 5 weeks and its changed our lives. I have lost 11 pounds and feel so much better. My other half has lost 1 stone 10 pounds (he has a quicker metabolism then me) and feels on top of the world.
Its easy to follow, its not a diet but a change of lifestyle, its not about portion sizes and… Read Full Review

i attend a slimming world class and i find the concept of eat as much AS YOU WANT OF FREE FOOD NOT REALLY GOOD FOR RETRAINING APPETITE SIze am totally unimpressed with being weighed by neighbours i started before christmas and there were almost 100 in class this has now dwindled to about 30 as people have complained that they would much rather be weighed by the leader one woman who weighed me even said god you dont look that heavy the leader says that this is slimming world policy but i know… Read Full Review

I have been doing PP on the new weight watchers plan and did really well in the beginning but now it has ground to a holt and I have even put on whcih I dont understand why as I stick to it properly. Can someone please explain to me how without weighing and eating as much as you want you can lose weight. I have tried Slimming world before and couldnt understand it and loss very little weight.
Any help you can give would be a great help.

Have been a very bad member for 2 years - go for a while, lose weight,stop going and put it on again. This time I am going to win and SW will help me do it cause I know if you stick to the plan - it works! Feel sorry for the girl with the miserable staff. Our club is really happy and our leader is second to none cause she really cares!! I would suggest that anyone not losing on SW plan is either cheating themselves or not understanding the plan. Ask for help!! Also it is less than a fiver to be… Read Full Review

Plucked up the courage to join SW 6 weeks ago.
Consultant rushed through the main principles of the plan and then I joined the group session. Consultant did lots of manic giggling and time wasting and seemed to have certain favourites that she concentrated on. Didn't learn anything constructive. 2nd week thought I would stay again to see if the group would be better. Not a chance complete waste of time. Coupled with the fact that the women who check you in and weigh you are as miserable as sin… Read Full Review

If you really want to lose weight and eat loads this is the diet for you! LOVE it. I have lost 1 stone and 1lb in 7 weeks. I stay to group which is the most fantastic boost each week. I have treats everyday and still lose weight the reciepes on the magazine and online are great. I have a two year who eats the same as me and my hubby do. Extra easy is fantastic so long as 1/3rd of your plate is the superfree food (too many people just dont do it!) I still go out, i go for coffee and cake and… Read Full Review

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
