And just like that, it’s September! Is it just us, or did the summer fly by?

While September’s a popular time for many of us to wipe the slimming slate clean, at Slimming World we believe you can lose weight through every season.

Over the past few months, we’ve shared some of the unique tools and strategies you’ll find in Slimming World groups – or our digital service, Slimming World Online – that helped our members enjoy a summer of fun and a stonking weight loss.

So if you had a slip-up over the summer, don’t worry. Join us for a look back at how our members kept their slimming strong – and send your motivation soaring for autumn and beyond…

No weight loss journey is ever plain sailing! At Slimming World, you’ll find practical advice and support to help you get back on track – and our powerful Motivational Toolkit can help you overcome any obstacles.

Whether you join your local group or Slimming World Online, you’ll be warmly welcomed by  like-minded people who’ll share ideas and celebrate your success. Nichola (@swnicholag) went to her group every week during the summer to stay supported and that helped her earn her 4st award. She said:

“After being a little disappointed last week, with the power of group I kept going knowing my good decisions would pay off! And my goodness me did they, with an amazing loss this week!! 🎉 A step closer to my target and I couldn’t be more happy!”

Make healthy new habits

At Slimming World, we’ve been helping people form healthy new habits for more than 50 years. Our eating plan is fully flexible, so you can make simple changes to suit your lifestyle. Simply going to group each week can make a big difference, too, as studies show that connecting socially with others who engage in healthy eating and activity patterns can help us build similar ones.

Build in Body Magic moments

At Slimming World, we support our members to move more through our unique Body Magic activity programme, and this summer we launched our ‘It’s a Kind of Magic’ activity challenge to inspire our members to build up their fitness levels by following a weekly timetable of activity.
