The particulars

My name is Sophie, I am a 25 year old IT Manager from Somerset and more importantly… a slimming world target member!!

I started my weight loss journey in February 2015 weighing 12 stone 4.5 pounds and at a dress size of 16. It took me 18 weeks to lose 2 stone 1.5 pounds and to exceed my target weight and drop 3 dress sizes before my 25th birthday. I am now an extremely happy size 10 with buckets full of new found confidence and a new love for cooking!

Why I started Slimming World

For many years I suffered with health problems due to poor diet and virtually no excercise. I started slimming world after becoming extremely impressed (and a bit jealous) of the results both of my parents achieved by following the plan. By jealous I mean that I was jealous of the number of colourful certificates proudly displayed on their fridge! I fell in love with slimming world and we are now a complete slimming world family! along with my partner who follows the plan from home.

Me now

Having suffered with crippling shyness for many years I finally feel happy with myself and comfortable in my own skin! (most of the time!)

I started this blog after experimenting with slimming world recipes and taking countless pictures of the results. My mum and I spend most Saturdays hunting bargains and flitting from Costa (small skinny late – 3.5 syns) with a brief stop in New Look, then onto Aldi, Morrisons, Asda (sometimes) and Iceland. During these trips we have amassed a collection of recipes and tips for sticking to plan and I want to share!

I really hope you enjoy the blog as much as I will do filling it up and I will try to make the food look nice and posh but most importantly tasty!
