This word feels me with dread; I can honestly say it’s a word that makes me come out in a cold sweat. Diet to me means you can’t eat what you really like or what and what is the point in that. I prefer to use the term “Healthy Eating” don’t you think it sounds better?

Like most of us I have been looking in the mirror the last few weeks and not liking what I am seeing and the only person who can change that is me!

So I have decided to do something. New Year new me.

I have tried many diets in my time and some have worked, The Cambridge Diet I lost 3 stone on but for me it wasn’t a long term thing, as I found it wasn’t good if you socialise a lot. Then there was Weight Watchers, which really wasn’t for me, I felt that I was constantly thinking about food, it felt too strict for me. I always end up going back to Slimming World, why? Because it doesn’t feel like I am on a diet as you can eat so much on it. My social life seems to revolve around eating as I am always going out for lunch or dinner with friends or round to someone’s house for a nice meal. At least this way I can still do all of this while I am on Slimming World.

My theory is that if I blog about me starting Slimming World it will give more even of a reason to stick to it as people might want to know how I am doing…. Well that’s my theory!

I have done my research and found a class that I can go to at lunch time at work, Wednesday’s 12.00, I am all set.

My fridge is stocked up with lots of “free food” the fruit bowl is flowing and I am feeling positive about it. Will I be feeling like this in a few weeks? You will have to keep an eye on my blog to find out.

Wish me luck!
