Slimming World – I have finally admitted defeat and am enlisting the professionals

Slimming World

Slimming World

Let me quickly introduce myself to the Slimming world…world. My name is Steve (Read more about me HERE) I have decided to join the group Slimming world as I am weighing in at almost 16stone (6ft tall) and only getting more heavy whenever I dare stand on a set of scales. Being a full-time single dad to 2 children I am now solely responsible for their meals and their general attitude to eating right and I am sick of always being tired and grumpy.  I have literally no idea what I am doing and thought if I blog about it and share my journey maybe a few people in the know may help me out and we can make some sort of eSTEAM train…. I should be a motivational speaker with sentences like that!!!

Talking to my sister she started explaining to me about Sins (Syns), Free food and speed food. Well, I thought Syns were committed on a night out after 5 pints Free food is when the restaurant messes up your order and gives you another meal as a goodwill gesture and speed food is when you nip out for a quick drive through. I have so much to learn, but I am determined to do this.




I have set myself three goals and a time limit of a year. I will learn later if I am being over ambitious or not ambitious enough. The fact is simple though, I am getting bigger every time I look in the mirror. My clothes are getting snug (more than snug) and I hate skinny jeans. At 32 years old I am not getting any younger so I need to start looking after myself. My goals are to:


Slimming 2

  1. Understand what I am eating and the nutritional information on the packaging, I aim for green generally but I don’t have a clue what any of it means

2. As a full-time single parent, It is my responsibility to feed my children a decent diet. I don’t want them to be on a diet but If I eat right they will also eat right, That can only be a good thing.

3. If I lose 3 stone (Taking me down to 13stone) That would be nice healthier and feed my children food that is better for them. If I lose 3 stone (Taking me down to 13stone) That would be nice too.
