Hi everyone, I'm kev . I'm 35 and just started slimming world extra easy 4 weeks ago now. I started slimming world mainly because I could see I was getting fatter and fatter, but also because I was worried about my dads weight as he is out of work, packed up smoking because he had cancer ( which is now all clear for the past 2 years) and was starting to deteriorate health wise, getting out of breathe going up stairs etc etc. so I decided to put me, my mum and dad on the slimming world extra easy plan.
Well it's been 4 weeks now. I bought the slimming world starter pack off eBay and we have stuck to it everyday, even when me and my mum went away.
After 4 weeks these are the results:
Myself - lost 10lb
My mother - lost 7lb
My dad - lost 6lb
So as you can imagine, we are really pleased. We are not going to classes and we haven't signed up online, we are just going it alone.
What I'm starting to find difficult, is not being able to just buy a pizza to stick in the oven, or make a jar of Indian curry. It all seems to be very time consuming. I love to cook, don't get me wrong, but sometimes I just want an easy night after work and just have something quick to eat. Trouble is I don't like fish, and my parents don't like pasta, so it's tricky. I've tried the pub grub Iceland chicken and their great and easy, also the tinned curries from Asda that are good on syns, but I need more inspiration! Anyone help? What do you do? It has also about bankrupted me with all this cooking and buying fresh veg and fruit!
anyway that's enough blathering now thanks for reading
