I've been doing Slimming World for six weeks now. I may not have lost quite as much weight as I'd hoped by this point but I am looking better. I look in the mirror now and I don't hate what I see. My waist is becoming more pronounced, my arms are thinner (I began to hate them the most, after C said they were his least favourite bit of me), my legs are becoming leaner (thanks to the running) and my face is definitely about half the size it was before (no more moon face here).

I've found a few things over the last few weeks that I really like or that really seem to help and I thought I'd share...
  • Fennel tea. Amazing for the digestion and bloating.
  • Marks & Spencer chunky steak (400g tin) is syn free and bloody lovely! It's perfect for lunch at work on an Extra Easy or Original day.
  • Also, Marks & Spencer have started doing little individual bags of mixed vegetables that you can steam in the microwave. They're currently two for £1.00 and, again, are perfect for lunch at work. I had sugar snap peas, carrots and broccoli today and they were lovely.
  • Green tea tablets. I use the ones from Boots (£6.99 for 90) and they really seem to help with digestion.
  • Grapefruit. Nothing earth shattering here but if I eat a grapefruit with a meal at least once a day I seem to lose more weight.

 If anyone's got any tips they'd like to share then they're always very welcome!

After coming off Lipotrim, I've found that if I still drink at least 2 litres of water a day, plus green tea & coffee, then I still lose a 1lb or 2 every two days or so. Flushes it all out I suppose? Who knows?

You're doing well sweet, glad that you're beginning to see the difference now too!!!

Oh I always drink LOADS of water. Have been doing for years. Green tea and water is pretty much all I ever drink.
