Holidays and Weight Loss

It will soon be summer and some people will be heading off on holidays, whether abroad or at home, most will have some sort of break. For me, our first ‘holiday’ of 2019 was last week – hence no new posts from me during the week.

I will openly admit this last week while I’ve been away with family I’ve not even thought about Slimming World once. I’ve eaten chocolate & pastries, I’ve drunk beer and I’ve not been on the bike (kinda difficult when I couldn’t take it with me). So from a Slimming World point of view, I’ve done everything but stick to the plan.
