Fighting the Flab for 2013

Come on own up, we've all done it. Made a New Year resolution to fight the flab, I have many times. Last Year I decided I was going to change my life style and not go on any more Diets.

So what I did was I choose the Healthier options.

This was me Maude Doodlebuns Flab Fighter by Just Inklined 

Maude Doodlebuns - (Flab Fighter)1

I was going round and round and slipping off the Diets time and time again, until I joined Slimming World, actually it was my daughter Lauren’s group, she is a brilliant motivator gives oodles of encouragement and her groups weight loss speaks for itself.

I was fat, frumpy, fed up and fatigued.

Laurens group taught me recipes, healthy choices and gave me the tools to get going, her phone is always by her so that if her members get stuck they give her a call and she sets them back on track, she simply loves her job.

Here is her details

or here on her Facebook page.

If you are in the area she will be at Asda in Peterlee tomorrow handing out her leaflets and giving away free Slimming World magazines so pop over and get yours and tell her I sent you.

I don’t often do this but look at the difference in my face in these two pictures the proof is not in the pudding, it’s in the photographs.

Before and after

If I can do it then so can you.

Congrats on the weight loss Jak, you look fantastic! I'm a wee bit to far away in the US, I wish I was closer, looks like a good program to be on.

I'm trying hard to loose my poundage, it's going slow, really slow but I'm trying.

Hugs, Lori m

Hi Jak, your card is great, we all think of loosing weight at this time of year and get in more exercise. I rejoined Slimming World last night, I had a break for a few weeks and only gained two and a half pound so this year hopefully I will reach my PAT. A ver Happy New Year to you and your family.

Well done to your daughter, she must get sooo much satisfaction from her work.

Me & my daughter have planned to join Slimming World in the new year & start Aqua Zumba!!!! Got to be easier in water ain't it?

Have done Slimming world before & it really does work BUT you must be dedicated, soooo much you can eat really, so no excuse.

Happy New Year to you & yours x

Well done you! I could do with losing a stone or five but Peterlee is a bit far from me, lol! I might have to check out Slimming World locally though.

Happy New Year to you and your family!

I just love your card Jak, it´s fantastisc, and so are you and you really look great on this picture here. You are always sooo clever and also at this here now, so if we can try and go after you in so many other ways, then we ofcause also can do it in this part too. MAybe lauren should start a webgroup too, so those who´s not around can get the same motivation and help with recipees and stuff online? Just a thought, it could be the last bit of help some people would need to get going.
A very HAPPY NEW YEAR to you and your family Jak and to everybody else inhere too.

I go to slimming world too and although I've lost weight I can't still get to grips with it. I need to look more at their recipes I think. Well done you on all your weight loss :)
