Hello, again.

Guess who's back, back again?

Well hello to you all.

I've been a tiny bit busy since we last spoke back in May, just a bit now.

Our twins lasted 36 weeks before they decided they were ready to meet us, but they needed a fortnight in SCBU before they were ready to meet everybody else. Fast forward 5 months later and here we are! The twins are thriving and I've found my mammy groove.

When the twins were 6 weeks old, I walked in the door of my first Slimming World meeting. Oh boy, what a difference has been made!!!

I weighed myself 10 days postpartum, and I had gained a meagre 5 pounds during my pregnancy. Praise Jesus. However, at 6 weeks postpartum, I had gained another 7, oh no. The slippery slope wasn't for me. I'm now 17 weeks into my Slimming World Journey and am a massive 2 stone 10.5 pounds down.  I even won my groups Miss Slinky. Yeah me, SLINKY! 

Knock me down with a feather. 

While I've taken the lifestyle changes in my stride and have slotted them in around my new role, ha know, the one where some eejit left me in charge of two babies. I have found that while we are managing just fine monetarily, there is the potential for your grocery bill to get a bit fatter while you're getting thinner. So I've made it my mission to be as money-savvy as I can while on my journey and what good is it keeping all this information to myself?!

I am in the process of setting up some social media channels that you may find more accessible, but all posts will be echoed here in a searchable format to reflect back on.

I am no consultant, and I do not work for Slimming World. 

I am, however, a 28 year old who has tried most plans, diets and shakes unsuccessfully, until now. 

Slimming World Works.

I look forward to sharing my bargains with you all, as well as the rest of my journey. 

Here's to an exciting future.
