Ken, you are so right. Slimming World is the only eating plan I have been able to stick to and therefore the only one that has worked for me. I lost nearly 3 stone with them first time round but...then...missed a couple of sessions...put on a bit...tried again...didn't do it properly...and now here I am with 3 stone to lose again (mind you it was 4!). The trouble is each group's dynamics are so different and it depends to such a huge extent on the group leader - "consultant" - and my local one just doesn't do the biz for me (the one I got on with retired). Such a shame. But how come I can't do it on my own? I did a 10k yesterday (freezing) and was (just) over the hour and I know I can do it just under the hour. I am sure it is the extra weight which cannot help. But, my blood pressure last week was 100 over 60 so I may be fat but at least I'm fit!
