What 6 months of Slimming World has taught me

After 6 months, it turns out that what I’ve learnt isn’t actually about syns or healthy extras or how much chocolate I can sneak in to one given day. It’s about looking after YOU. Continue reading What 6 months of Slimming World has taught me

Less than 1-syn chocolates!

Ok, so they’re only marginally less than 1 syn, but they taste so much naughtier than 1 syn, and give you a real chocolate fix! They’re also super easy to make – I can’t cook at all and look at mine!

I think, for me, 3 stone represents a considerable amount of weight-loss; a decent, chunky number that shows I’ve really achieved something. Of course, I’ve still … Continue reading The Big Purple One
