I have to admit that I, reluctantly, returned to Slimming World for the second time in over 13 years. When I joined the first time, the green plan suited my vegetarian lifestyle. Well, I expected the same this time around. But they have changed! The foods I enjoyed then were 'FREE', but now I find many are counted as syns! I have high cholesterol. So I don't want to eat eggs all day every day! Eggs are now counted as 'FREE' foods, ie, you can eat as many as you wish! What happened to everything in moderation? Anyway, now I don't feel it is the right approach for me. So I am delighted I found this site, and the information, and wonderful, helpful support from its members, because this may be my saviour! But, I have been sticking to the Slimming World approach, for now, even though I feel very hungry! But today I decided that I would not let food dictate my life ... and had a lovely Nestle Nobbly Lobbly lolly (I know it is sugary), but I felt so much better and fuller for this indiscretion! Do I feel guilty? NO! I am beginning to agree with a certain resources website for those who wish to lose weight, that a lot of these slimming clubs are just using what we would be better off without: the middle man - ie, the points, syns, etc. Sorry for a long story, but I think I may just use that resource website, and this one, combined with the support of lovely members to lose weight, by counting calories.
