At Slimming World the first target you are set is to loose 10 % of your body weight. It’s not been easy but 8 weeks in me and Luke have both managed this. We have done this by following the slimming world plan. Not only is it quite an achievement for us both to have lost this weight, we are starting to look better and there are untold health benefits to doing so.
Here is some inspiration that I hope will help you reach your goals and will be inspiring to help us reach our next goal. We know there is still along way to go but as our previous post shows there have been lots of reasons to celebrate this month.
