Ian’s Slimming World Journey
joined Slimming World in December
then I have kept an occasional journal, done the occasional photograph, had a letter
published about Slimming World (though in truth it was the 4 month journal but
still it’s been published) and thought I needed to keep these things in some
kind of order and have an archive that I can instantly refer people back to if
they want to see my particular journey.
try to keep this archive up to date whenever anything “news-worthy” is written,
though please forgive me that not all my Slimming World related news is going
to be on here – there’s just too much to keep these pages continually updated,
however anything major or important will be put up here on a regular basis.
some people will find all these “articles” an inspiration. Whilst some of these writings will also I
hope explain why I can advocate Slimming World so strongly to anyone who will
listen at times.
knew from the outset I had a long journey ahead of me with Slimming World. I didn’t quite realise how long it was likely
to be. It’s most likely going to take me
from December 2008 through to March 2010 to get to where I want to be. After that – well, I got to get there first
now haven’t I?
basically two sections to this site – there is the chronological blurb of
“newsworthy” items below.
Journal of 8Weeks of Slimming World (Or a tale of two weddings) – I was most surprised at this being selected as the “star letter” of the month for September on the Slimming World website.
that a local paper ran on me and my weight loss at the start of April 2010
I had been fortunate enough to be invited to the 2010
Slimming World “Greatest Loser” finals as one of the 10 members with the
highest weight loss in the country in April.
This is my brief account of what was truly a wonderful day.
Journal of 18months (and one week) – I
call target. – June 14th 2010
A before and now picture (June 14 2010 – Target)
July 31st – I did a tandem parachute jump in aid of the NSPCC and to
celebrate the weight loss raising over £750 in the process. A video of this can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2Y-vyqRWwA
and pictures at http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=58061&id=1650151292&l=a129c0e73b
(no need to be a member to see the pictures).
Two days after this – I weighed in at my (then) new target weight.
A copy of the news article that ran in a local
paper about the parachute jump
A general collage of the journey through till
the end of September (at my third target weight – just can’t seem to stop
loosing weight till then).
then – for just wanting to prove that I could – on November 5th
2010, I completed a charity fire walk – 20ft bare foot across burning coals - in aid of Children Today
(opens in a new window). No, it didn’t
hurt, and here is the picture to show me doing it.
now happily maintaining around my latest target having lost 15st7lb to get
there. It’s been a journey and a half,
and there’s still so much more out there to do/look at.
second section is for bits and pieces that are more general thoughts/feelings
rather then the journal type entries above.
