It’s January, so I’m going to be all stereotypical and decide I want to lose some weight/get healthier. Of course I’m going to be a bit late on the bandwagon with this one as it’s almost the end of the month already.
Now, before I launch into this post in detail I wanted to make clear a couple of things:
- I am not a doctor, nor am I advising anyone on how to lose weight.
- I don’t think crash diets are the way forward.
- Yep, that time old approach of healthy eating and exercise works.
I am considering signing up to either Weight Watchers or Slimming World. The reason I want to do this is so I feel a bit better about myself. I am not overweight, my BMI is 23.4, which is deemed healthy, but for my height (5ft3) my weight is higher than I would like it to be, and a BMI of 23.4 is on the higher end of the scale.
My aim in signing up to either Weight Watchers or Slimming World is to bring down my BMI and weight to a level I am more comfortable with.
I am looking for something that is healthy, balanced, doesn’t exclude food groups, doesn’t leave me hungry and is easy to follow. Something that means I can still eat out or have take-away occasionally.
I don’t want to go to the meetings, so an online plan would suit me best. I have done a bit of research already and I like the look of SW, but the price is a bit off putting – twice the cost of three months of weight watchers. Is it worth the extra cost?
What I would love to know from anyone reading this is – have you tried either WW or SW? What did you think – good or bad?
Any helpful comments would be fantastic!
(oh, and I’m also going to start doing more regular exercise – starting with buying an exercise bike)
