Weight Loss Wednesday | The One Where I Gain

This week saw my first gain since I started back on Slimming World in February and I can’t say I wasn’t expecting it. We had visitors and of course that meant a meal out, wine and a rather delicious meal that I made here on their first night. That alone wouldn’t have affected my weight…
