Hot Off The Press NEWS : Slice-Of-Slim is 1 Today!!!

At the end of 2011, I started to photograph the foods I was making on a daily basis and popping them on my personal Facebook page. After a few positive comments, I soon realised I had a great deal to say and was bursting with ideas.
I had a tremendous need to share my recipes, tips and inspirations gathered along my personal weight loss journey.

So, exactly one year ago today, I asked my daughter how to start a blog. My lovely, patient girl helped me to set it all up, and even came up with the perfect name.
Thus, Slice-Of-Slim was born!

Excitedly, I put fingers to keyboard for the very first time and have never looked back.


In one year, I have...

 Written 197 posts...

...Had over 93,000 hits from people all over the world...

...A loyal following of supporters

149 0n the blog
170 Via Twitter
1,550 Via Facebook

...A new career as a food writer with a regular feature in
Weight Watchers (UK) Magazine.
(Thanks River Group)!


Of course, I love everything about the process of blogging - creating recipes, styling and photographing my dishes alongside writing descriptively about the processes and flavours....but the most important aspect for me is supporting and inspiring all of you on your own journeys - whether that is weight loss, maintaining or just wanting to eat more healthily.


Thank you to all my supporters, friends and family who have been there every step of the way with me, and to every one of you who keeps returning to read the blog.
It wouldn't exist without you.

I'm still brimming with ideas, hopes and dreams for Slice-of-Slim, so lets see if 2013 is going to be another exciting year.


By the way, in true Slice-Of-Slim spirit, the 'Number 1' made of vegetables in the feature  photo at the top of this page, morphed into a delicious 0pp layered salad dressed with lemon juice, mustard and balsamic vinegar for lunch!


Keeping the joy of food alive by taking out the fat and keeping in the yumminess!

All my love,
