Hiya, my name's Joanne and I've been going to a slimming world class since april 2008 but i did start optimising in jan 08 as i had all the books from the year before. i lost 1stone at home doing it with my mum but she faded off blaming middle age spread getting in the way and i needed the support so i joined my class where i've stayed since and lost nearly another two stone. I enjoy the healthy eating but am at the verge of getting bored and want some new recipes and ideas and i think here on minimins i've found the solution !!!!
