I am not meant to call it a diet. At slimming world it is a programme and actually I don’t really feel like I am on a diet most of the time. For the first time in ages I feel that I might actually be able to do this and to get to the kind of weight I was in my 30′s. At the end of the 3rd week I am 7lb down and I have lost inches off of those places inches need to be lost (waist, hips and chest). The lateral thigh trainer is proving so far to be a good buy. I have managed to do about half an hour on it most evenings and am gradually building up so that now this is only in 2-3 sessions (the first few days I couldn’t even do 5 minutes continuously). This is just as well, as we have stereotypical weather right now – cold, dull, wet. This is not what I expected when we were told were in for a hot summer this year! For the first time ever (I think) I have put the central heating on in August!
