LIFE: I’m in the Weight Watchers magazine!

Blogger featuring in the April / May Weight Watchers UK magazine

Super excitingly, I was in the May edition of Weight Watchers magazine! They approached me via my WW Instagram account (always worth using hashtags, chaps) and asked me to attend a shoot to try out three different fashion looks for spring.

The shoot was really fun, and honestly, gave my self esteem a massive boost. I felt amazing! It was so much fun getting my hair and makeup done (man, Enya worked magic with my hair – look how SHINY it is) and then going through a big clothes rail full of clothes picked out for me. Nope, I didn’t get to keep the clothes, and while I had input, I didn’t really get to choose them either – the lovely stylist (whose name I’ve forgotten) suggested options for me to wear, many of which were pushing me out of my comfort zone. I was okay with it though and the tartan shirt and cropped jeans ensemble she popped me in first looked surprisingly great. Loved the massive wedges, too (I've been scouring Spartoo for something similar!). Not everything I put on worked, including some black and white striped culottes that were made for someone with absolutely zero lumpy bits, but it was still fun trying them and at no point was I made to feel embarrassed or silly. It was a lovely experience.

My favourite look was the last look, as it was a dress shape that I knew worked with my body type and I felt very glam. I’m actually wearing my own necklace in the feature, and even posed with my own handbag for a few shots that didn’t make the cut (apparently I’m just super in right now). It was a really fun shoot to do, and a great way to mark a year of working bloody hard to lose this weight (which, yes, I have some complicated feelings about which I’ve covered in a recent newsletter).

Because I figure a few people may have swung by here from the magazine, I’ve updated all the healthy recipes on this blog to include Weight Watchers SmartPoints. If a recipe doesn’t include SmartPoints, it’s because I – and probably you – don’t want to know. This chocolate, caramel and peanut butter tart, for instance. Don’t want to know. But there are lots of recipes that are delicious AND healthy, so take a look through my Weight Watchers label here. I hope you stick around.

If you’d like to know a bit more about my Weight Watchers journey over the past year and a quarter, you can follow my dedicated WW Instagram at @essbeevee_wwuk.

The magazine has been out for a few weeks but you may still spot a few copies on the shelves :)
