There are so many reasons to love Slimming World. From fabulously filling food to unrivalled slimming support, finding that incredible ‘Slimming World feeling’ at group or online is the first step to transforming your slimming fling into a long-term love that lasts a lifetime.
Cupid may have packed away his bow and arrow for another year, but we’re still feeling the love in the air at Slimming World HQ. We couldn’t resist finding out why some of our superstar slimmers love being a Slimming World member – and we’d love to hear your ‘I ❤️ Slimming World’ reasons, too!
I ❤️… never feeling hungry
No one likes to feel as though they’re missing out, and depriving yourself of the foods you love is a sure-fire way to throw you off the weight loss wagon. Thankfully, no food is banned at Slimming World. Our unique Food Optimising plan is based on the latest weight loss research, is in line with government healthy eating guidelines, and is also designed to be easy to follow – so you can enjoy all your favourite foods, satisfy your appetite and lose weight!
Tucking into this heart-warming plateful of her foodie faves was just the pick-me-up Robyn (@sw_slimmingwithrobyn) needed after a bustling, blustery morning.
She says: “Why I love Slimming World… After a long and extremely cold morning at the car-boot sale, coming home to this fabby on-plan brunch is amazing!”
I ❤️… feeling more confident
Confidence is something we can all struggle with, especially if we’re unhappy about our weight. Swapping unhealthy habits for a lifestyle that makes you feel happy, healthy and energised is a great way to boost your self-esteem!
Whether it’s making the time to go to group every week, working towards a new Body Magic milestone or trying a tasty new recipe, things that make you feel happy are brilliant confidence-boosters. Plus, all that self-care will leave you looking and feeling your best – just like our gorgeous member Sara (@sara_baxsw).
She says: “This is why I love Slimming World: I’m healthier, happier, more confident and, most importantly, not embarrassed.”
I ❤️… finding forever friends
If there’s one thing that’s guaranteed when you join Slimming World, it’s that you’ll never experience any judgement, humiliation or shame about your weight. Whether you’re making friends in group or on the Community at Slimming World Online, you’ll be encouraged by a squad of like-minded slimmers who’ll never give up on you – even at those times when you might feel like giving up on yourself. Angela and Lynn have stuck together ever since they met in their Slimming World group.
Angela says: “Met this gorgeous human at my SW class and she’s never been able to get rid of me ever since.”
I ❤️… knowing I can overcome any challenge
When you’re struggling with your weight, it can be harder to feel positive about yourself – so it makes sense that your self-belief can take a tumble if you suffer a slimming setback. It’s at these tricky times we’ll really get behind you. From handy motivational features on our member website and in Slimming World Magazine, to the endless encouragement you’ll get from your Consultant and fellow slimmers, we’ve got a toolkit bursting with ways to help you overcome any obstacle that stands in your way.
Once you’re back on track, you’ll soon find your self-belief soaring, just like our brilliant member Nigel (@slimlikeaman).
He says: “In 2018, after I’d lost over 6st, I gained weight and couldn’t understand why. At first I felt like giving up, but then my Consultant encouraged me to refocus on the reasons for wanting to lose weight in the first place. Reminding myself of why I joined Slimming World fired up my motivation and the weight started coming off again. Losing weight has given me the confidence that I can tackle any challenge that comes my way. I feel like I can conquer anything!”
