So we completed our first official week back on Slimming World, and I think it went a lot better than we expected.
I lost 3.5lb!
Nick lost 4lb!!
But it’s not just the weight losses that have been a positive this week. Nick and I have spent loads more time together cooking and eating. We’ve also really enjoyed meal planning and trying new food. I’ve been sleeping better and we’ve both generally just been feeling a lot better.
I’m hoping for a similar result next week as honestly was hoping for a bit more on my first week. But it’s been a great week and I’m determined for this week to be even better.
