Slimming and Weight Loss


Slimming and weight loss, and helping people to get fitter, healthier and happier, has been my world for over 50 years.

The one thing I’ve learnt is that there is no quick fix. We didn’t gain our excess weight overnight and we won’t lose it overnight either. It takes effort and determination to commit to eating less and moving more.

Here are some very good reasons for making changes plus some helpful tips to help you on your journey.

How to Lose Weight

Here Rosemary explains how we lose weight and how we can speed up our weight-loss.

Speed up your Weight-Loss with Exercise!

Success breeds success. As well as the health benefits of exercise, Rosemary explains that you will also drastically speed up your rate of weight loss if you exercise regularly.

When the Going gets Tough…

Hitting a plateau? Do the scales seem to have stuck? Rosemary explains how sometimes we slip back to some of our old habits of guessing portion size, nibbling when we feel peckish – and how we can get back on track and get the scales moving again.

BMI (Body Mass Index) Explained

Rosemary asks fitness supremo Mary Morris to explain in simple terms the implications of our BMI and why being more active as we get older is beneficial to our weight and long term happiness.

Motivation to Lose Weight

Struggling to find the will? Here’s a few things to think about…

Finding Your Motivation to Lose Weight

Motivation is the key to success to losing weight. Here Rosemary explains how to motivate yourself to be the best you can be.

Health Risks of Obesity

Why should we aim to be a healthy weight? What are the health risks if we aren’t? Is it ever too late to start? Rosemary explains how we can transform our lives no matter what our age.

Your Metabolic Age can be a Real Motivation to Lose Weight!

Rosemary noticed that her PA, Peter Legg was piling on the lbs but felt helpless as she couldn’t say anything. Enjoy the story of how Peter found his motivation to lose 21 lbs after his weight soared to an all-time high during lockdown.

I used to be overweight!

Rosemary Conley overweight? Well I was, by 2½ stone many years ago, which is where I found the motivation to write my first diet.

In 2013, I decided it would be interesting to put on a fat suit and experience what it must feel like to be seriously overweight. With a facial prothesis created by the Beauty Department of Leicester College, a ‘Little Britain’ fat suit taped around me and wearing a 20lb ‘fat jacket’ I walked around town. What shocked me was how I felt. By just wearing the costume, I found myself adopting the persona of someone who was significantly overweight and it taught me a very important lesson.
