My Journey


So here I am, I look pretty happy, don’t I? At my mums 50th. But all I wanted to do was hide. I have been overweight all my life.

As a young child, i was constantly bullied because of my weight so would comfort eat which meant I got bigger so I became a bigger target for bullying.

I was unwell when I started secondary school so I had to watch what I ate but the weight crept back on after I came out of the hospital.

The final straw was being with my boyfriend knowing that I have Polycystic ovary syndrome that I may not be able to have children (which is what I have always wanted). Or possibly having children but them going through what I have been through.

So as of 2016 in February after years of yo-yo diets, I joined slimming world and so far throughout various health problems (including being on various pills that cause weight gain) I have lost 4 stone.

As of 2018 after my op (although still recovering) we are well and truly back on plan i managed to maintain 3.5 of my 4 stone so hopefully onwards and downwards!

I hope you guys follow my progress and get some form of meal ideas from my recipes!

Love, the brand new Emily x

  1. Well done on your weight loss! I will be trying some of the recipes for sure and was wondering if you can turn your creativity towards some veggie recipes?

  2. Hi Emily

    Wow, you are one amazing lady. I’ve been doing Slimming World for close to five years now, but it has to be said that I’ve really only been serious since December 28 last year.

    Since then, I’ve lost a stone, started the gym, and been dragged along to a local karate class. Yes, I’m 50, had cerebral palsy since birth, but am now determined to shed the five stone + that will get me to target.

    Your journey has filled me with new hope and makes me realise I can do this!

    Good luck with all you hard work and journey.

    1. Thank you for your support no matter what age you are we can all change our habits to become healthier, we have a lovely lady in our group with cerebral palsy and problems with her joints etc she’s done so well and come so far no matter what we are categorised as, as far as disabilities go, the only person holding us back is ourselves! Good luck on your journey my lovely xxx


  3. I just found your site. You have done so well so far…much better than me. Don’t give up hope on the children front – I have PCOS and I have 2 kids. It took me three years of trying the first time, two the second and two miscarriages as well, but I got there in the end. I wish you all the very best in your journey. Take care. x

    1. Thank you for your support! Try not to compare your journey to others as everyone is different, I look at women who lose the weight I need to lose that do it in under a year but I need to remember my body is different to theirs xx well done on your journey so far no matter how little progress you’ve made it’s still progress xxx


  4. You have beautiful eyes! I am excited to use some of your recipes that will hopefully help me. I am 62 years old and want to lose 100 pounds (US). I know it will take a long time, but I have failed so many years. This is my time! Thanks for the inspiration. ❤


  5. Hi Emily, are you in the US? I am American but live in the UK. I prefer American recipes but on Slimming World in the UK, you don’t get those. Are you still on SW? Other than your fantastic site, can you recommend any others? Thanks so much!


    1. thank you so much, I am in the UK! slimming eats is a great one and she cooks she eats! I’m going through a rough patch health wise but as soon as I’ve had my operation I’m rejoining a group as I can’t get to one yet! so loosely following where I can! x


  6. I’ve just discovered you via a link and am so happy now! I love your recipes and really look forward to following you on this site on my SW journey. It’s a really pleasant change to find some recipes for one + budget recipes too! You’re a great inspiration. Good luck for the future. x


  7. I have a couple of beautiful grandchildren from a daughter that had the same polycystic problem that you have had. I pray that the same happens with you. My daughter also introduced me to slimming world, after I had a stroke. I still have weight to lose, but already I am feeling so much better. My best wishes to you on your journey.
