Slimming World - Month 5

When I decided in January that it was time to really focus on losing weight and start Slimming World I had no idea how much it would change my lifestyle and that I'd actually still be doing it 5 months later. It's become part of my everyday life and I'm still learning, making changes and most importantly, living life. May hasn't been as 'off plan' as April was but I did still have a hen weekend in Edinburgh and there's no way that Slimming World was going to win with that one. Across the month I maintained quite consistently and had a 1lb loss bringing me to a stone and a half off!
