I joined Slimming World in Sept 2007, as my clothes were all getting very tight on me and I didn't want to go out and buy bigger clothes. By Christmas Eve I had reached my target, having lost 1st 6lbs, and was then able to go and buy new clothes, but smaller! By going to group and staying most weeks I've managed to maintain my target weight. This has made me feel much healthier and given me more confidence. The plan is great and my whole family can all eat the same food as it's a healthily balanced plan.
