follow and share

Well hello there – so you enjoy the blog and the thought of two strong men coming daily in your mailbox is what you’re after. Of course it is! Well, to follow this blog, just put your email address into the follow me box which will be:

  • on the right of this page, if viewed on a laptop, PC or most tablets; or
  • at the bottom of this page, if viewed on a mobile.

I never spam or send out nonsense but you’ll get a little email everytime I posted, which so far is once daily. I mean, I’m a young guy but I have limits, you know?

It would be amazing if you could share the blog and the recipes – scatter them in the wind like so many disposed tissues. Give them out in your slimming class, post a link to the blog on your Facebook groups, go crazy – the more shares the better!

Finally, if you post a comment and it doesn’t appear, don’t fret – we have to moderate them and that can take up to 24hours – but we always get round to it and we’re always very thankful.

Cheesy though it is, we wouldn’t do this if it wasn’t for everyone else.

Urgh, my fucking teeth hurt.

Perfect balance and made me smile after a shit week. Well done and thankyou. Subscribed.

Thankyou for the light relief in the very serious side of losing weight and keeping it off

    My other half decided to do the SW thing and as a big foodie myself, thought i’d give it a go. I’ve grew a pretty impressive beer gut since leaving the forces back in ’06 and even more so driving trucks the last 5 years!!

    Recipes look amazing, cant wait to try some of those. Oh and if you’re ever in and around the West Midlands, I’d love for you to come have a lite beer and a SW barbecue with us!!

  83. If laughing helped me lose weights I’d be a real skinny minny. Thanks boys. Love that you say it as it is. Xx

  84. I just happened to come across your webpage and ive been laughing from start to finish. its wonderful how you make so many comments that feel like you have pulled them from our own brains. you come across so genuine about your weightloss journey and it resonates with so many people. love it keep doing what your doing it makes the journey I’m following myself much easier knowing other people have stumbled on the same hurdles I have.

  85. I have laughed, nay roared with laughter these past few months. I have had to start buying Tena I laugh so much at lunch reading your exploits.

    I have done SW off and on for many years. I moved to Australia last September and gained lots of extra weight I’m struggling to get off. The fact there are no groups over here is killer! :'( This is why I’m back online searching for SW recipes etc. Thank you for sharing your experience. I, for one, really appreciate it πŸ™‚ xxx

  90. Your sense of humour is too bloody funny…love it!!! Starting sw tomorrow so looking forward to trying your recipes. I’m having a busy day today stuffing down all the remaining chocolate biscuits, cake and pizza :)))))

  91. I’m quite new to SW (4 weeks in) and have just found your blog – never has slimming been so funny!! Can’t wait to try your recipes and read your posts ? Xx

  92. Just found this via one of my friends on Facebook.
    I am going to try these recipes as my husband, myself and son are diabetics and my son is waiting for an operation to help him lose weight but it would be great if we can all lose some and support him on his journey.

  93. Just found your page by luck on Facebook….and after only a few pages….I love you!! Hopefully you’ll inspire me to loose loads of weight. I’m doing Slimming World Online as I’m hard of hearing and couldn’t hear in the class. Thank you for making me laugh out loud! Off to read more!!

  94. I really need to lose weight so I am going to have a read of your blog and see if I can get some inspiration.

  95. Love your ideas and you do make me laugh. Would love some more sun free snack ideas as this is my major downfall. Well that and a few glasses of Prosecco

    πŸ™‚

  96. This is a breath of fresh air. Can’t wait to read more. I’m new dieting but no longer like the body I’m in so bring it on. SW seems complicated to thought I would just pinch your recipes and see what happens. Wish me luck!

  97. I love your pages and recipes! I’m just starting out with SW and your recipes have made the prospect a hell of a lot more exciting! Plus several chuckles and chortles along the way… thank you!

  98. Hi guys, couldn’t find an UNSUBSCRIBE button anywhere so I’ve resorted to this. I’ve been ticked off by my manager at work for receiving your blog, (bad language content) so need to be removed from your ‘mailing list’ please. I love reading your emails while tucking into my lunch but will have to re-join at home address. So sorry, but urgent removal would be appreciated. Thanks for all the laughs, keep it up!

    • Unfortunately we don’t have any control over the mailing list, it seems to be an internal thing by the site host BUT there should be a link at the bottom of the email to unsubscribe. Hope this helps!

  99. Oh my days…. Have just joined SW and whilst looking for recipe ideas I have come across your site, bloody brilliant, peed my pants laughing so much. Can only imagine what a night on the fizzy stuff with you guys would be like. Thank you, I feel that your site will help me when I may struggle x ????

  100. Hello! on a dreich Sunday morning your blog is a breath of fresh air {or is that a whiff fae your trainers I just got} from a Scot who has never subscribed to a blog before I think I may just have a belly laugh or 2 before I do any cooking. Luving you guys already.SlΓ‘inte!

  108. Gents – have signed up to the blog, ordered my first meaty box (ooh err) and go to Slimming World class No.1 this evening.

    Hats off to you both – cracking posts, super recipes and far and away the best SW related site I’ve found…more power to your elbows!

  109. afternoon, I don’t do “SW” as I don’t diet per se but these recipes are fab and I will be using some of them in my healthy eating regime, I came across your blog whilst researching for some SW BBQ recipes so my friend who does follow SW does not cancel my BBQ invite for her (big not 49 but the next one) birthday! So far chicken souvlaki and Mongolian beef have made the menu with potato salad, rainbow coleslaw and pitta chips but I keep getting sidetracked by your fab blog! I love it. Keep up the great motivation words and slim on!

  110. hi there I don’t really know where to start lol with the questions I have, I have clicked to follow you but not sure if I have done that right lol, I have also clicked on the star on my laptop screen which I hope will bring me back here, I stumbled onto you (sorry if it hurt) by looking through my twitter account.

    I am a crazy Welsh woman desperately trying to shift some more weight, I was 20 stone and now I am down to about 15 and a half. I have joined slimming world and I am enjoying the recipes. I am so glad I found someone ‘blogging’ about it but I have no idea how this blogging thing works, so do you have a facebook page I can be added to (I understand face book lol).

    I absolutely love the banter you all have going and look forward to reading more …. you sound AWESOME …

    • Eeh well done you! Keep it up! If you ever want to keep up-to-date just type ‘twochubbycubs’ into Google and it’ll bring you straight here πŸ™‚ make sure to spell it correctly though, otherwise it’ll take you to porn (though I suppose you could always strum yourself thin…) I’ll add your email to the mailing list just in case so you can always gets the newest posts straight into your box. no, not that box….

  111. At last! I’m so happy to see a blog that’s updated, and still in full action – a blog about loosing weight, recipes and all the “fine” things that come with being a gay chubby bear/guy.
    This blog will help me in my journey to loose weight, so keep up the good work, I adore the blog!

  112. I just woke up yesterday and decided fat’s enough…..:@( Desperate to find non-boring stuff to eat I searched the internet and found you both, lucky me. I am cooking for England and found so many lovely easy ideas. Simply brilliant – brilliantly simple. My 19 year old son claims his farts smell like yesterdays quiche, might teach him not to eat it all. My husband is well into the Mojitos, says they are better than the cocktail bars! Not quite the support I was looking for but to be fair to them, they are eating and enjoying everything I’m putting in front of them. Well done for making an interesting, fun to use site. Looking forward to seeing results, I certainly feel inspired !

  113. Hi, just found you guys, I live in Australia where I don’t think we have slimming world, my sister in England told me about it, what fantastic recipe’s you have on here, cant wait to start and looking forward to getting your emails.

  114. I’m following the SW plan and saw you’re posts on friends fb pages πŸ™‚ I am struggling at the minute as I work long hours and can’t always be bothered to cook when I get home . I’m hoping you can give me fresh inspiration πŸ™‚

  115. I am trying this slimming world but am on blinkin steroids ,so hope it will work also gave an under active thyroid too urrgghh ,

  116. Your blogs are awesome and so are your recipes. What a winning combination you both are – witty & talented! It’s refreshing to hear someone say it like it is πŸ™‚

  117. At the start of my slimming world journey and the recipes are getting a bit blah, the twist you guys put on them look amazing and can’t wait to try. The sticky soy glazed meatballs look amazing

    • Cheers! We got sick of all the watery shite too, that’s why we made this site so it’s always good to hear when it’s helped someone! πŸ˜€ if you try the meatballs (and they really are lovely), please come back and let us know what you thought! πŸ˜€

  118. Not sure if I’ve done this right, but could you add me to your mailing list please. Can’t find any other way to do it lol

  119. Hope I have done this right. Clicked the follow. I found your page through another slimming world group on Facebook. Great recipes ?

  120. So your ‘human beef’ with kale has delicious flavours, but as I have a particular skill of making all beef tough as old boots I was wondering if you think this would work with chicken? Also any recipes I can use the 3 stone of kale I have left over as the shop only sold it by the crate load ?? thankings you x

  121. Found your website on Pinterest. I’m just about to go on the Slimming World bandwagon for the third time! It doesn’t exactly fill me with joy and enthusiasm, however, after finding your website perhaps all is not lost?

    • Our philosophy is all about making tasty, wholesome food that isn’t the usual watery, sweetener-and-egg shite you get elsewhere! We hope you find us useful, keep us updated! πŸ˜€

  122. Laughed out loud at your blogs and comment replies this morning….and not even started the recipes yet. Thanks for cheering up my morning and look forward to getting cooking. Shared with my SW group and I’m sure a few more shares are on the cards πŸ™‚

  123. What a great change, loads of humour instead of all the heavy stuff. Gives me a giggle while learning new recipes. Thank you so much. ?

  124. Can’t believe I’ve only come across your blog. Your recipes and banter give this new (this time) member to SW hope for some tasty grub. Thanks!

  125. Morning gents

    Am new to SW having tried other clubs in the past (not to name names but it rhymes with Shmeight Shmatchers).

    Looking forward to reading the blogs and hopefully losing a bit of weight too!

  126. It’s a long way to Tipper … sorry, scroll to the bottom of the page (all those comments!) however, I am sniggering all the way down. First dinner cooked tonight and it smells goooooood! Many thanks for keeping a weary slimmer’s pecker up!! πŸ™‚

  127. Well this has made me smile! ?
    I have to say the entries made laugh out loud.. At first I was a little taken back when the first recipe I read was the cheesy garlic bread especially as this site was recommended by our SW consultant.
    All I can say is that it’s an honest and Frank blog which has made me smile ..shared and liked thanks

  128. HI guys, I would love to follow your posts they are hilarious and the recipes are fab too. Don’t know if this is how I subscribe but if not I’d appreciate some advice if not. Thanks keep up the good work. Gaynor.xx

  129. Laughing as I cook delicious recipes and hopefully lose weight, whats not to love x

    thanks from the Gold Coast, Australia. (Where are you guys based?)

  130. This blog is amazing and so funny. I am trying to loose weight and up until now have not done too badly. Now I am at a standstill and need a boost to lose the last few inches of lard. . So this Geordie in exile is off to Slimming World tomorrow on “Flab Attack 2016”

  131. This blog is amazing and so funny. I am trying to loose weight and up until now have not done too badly. Now I am at a standstill and need a boost to lose the last few inches of lard. You have inspired me with your wit and down to earth approach to what can be a very depressing subject. Well done lads!. So this Geordie in exile is off to Slimming World tomorrow on “Flab Attack 2016”

  132. Congratulations, you are my new obsession! (Not in a weird stalker way, I too lazy for that sort of nonsense) Your posts are a barbed delight and have kept me entertained on a lengthy rail journey today, for which you deserve a medal. Given that it is an early train and train folk have no decency, I can enjoy your stories whilst smelling some the unpleasant things that you describe.

    I joined SW last week so am also on the quest to lose 2 stone by Christmas, being an organised sort with the will power of a flip-flop, there is every chance I will find that 2 stone in the new year though! I wish you all the very best and look forward to reading your adventures going forward.

    Xx

  133. Please add me, I started slimming world two weeks ago and I’m loving your recipes they look amazing, can’t wait to try them for myself.

  134. Hi, I put my details in a few weeks ago but nothing seems be coming to my email address. Your blogs are so uplifting and gives me such a giggle, thank you so much.

  135. Oh my sweet Jesus. I’ve just discovered you guys from a link on another Facebook page about syn free lasagne/lasagna (yeah I too struggle with that. Spelling not eating obviously else I’d not be needing Slimming World!) It’s 3.30am and I’m on Facebook because my darling son is being an arsehole and decided to wake up all full of beans at midnight and has only just gone back to bed. Have kids they said. It’ll enrich your life they said. I’ve literally had to bite down on the pillow so I don’t wake the hubs by laughing. Abso-fookin-lutely hilarious. Thank you for the laughs, great recipes and getting me through the last few hours with an overtired but won’t pissin’ sleep 16 month old.

  136. Absolutely love the blog, going to try out sloppy joe tater tots tomorrow for me and my mum. Been an on and off SWer forever but going to stick to it this time round! I mean unlimited bacon, what’s not to love? I’ve felt the same way about sweeteners and ‘frankenfood’ when looking at other sites, so happy to see real food! Glad i made the right call not joining in with 1/2 syn roulade party.

    Wonder how your actual weight losses are going?

    Please add me to your mailing list.

    Thank you for the lovely recipes!

  137. Can’t find a follow me box, please can you add me? Just discovered your blog and amazeballs recipes via my friend who follows you.

  138. OMG – I am a complete convert to overnight oats! Just made them with Turkish Delight Muller Light and mushed up some raspberries, it was delicious. I take them to work in a plastic pot and they really are filling, great for cholesterol too! Love your blogs and your recipes so thank you and keep up the good work.

  139. The one-pot chinese beef is in the oven and smells delicious. Can’t wait! I’m going it alone after many years in and out of Slimming World groups. Like you, I love the main concept of SW and the cooking from scratch, but the fake cakes, endless sweetener and synning a mashed banana whilst overdosing on bacon did start to get to me. Finding your site has been fantastic, love your approach and your humour. Thanks a lot!

    • So I don’t normally believe in fate or serendipity doo-dar, but making the slow-cooked beef last night was a life saver. At 5pm we got a call from our 12 year-old’s school to say he’d had an accident at a rugby match and can we meet them at A&E. A very long story, many sick and whingy children, a pitifully under-resourced Children’s A&E ward full of angels in disguise (every one of them) and a very sorry boy with a broken collarbone we arrived home at 9.30pm to the most delicious smell. Our 17 year old had the good sense to turn it off at some point then on again for our arrival but wow – it was delicious and even better for the extended cooking time.

  140. Hi . Its me gain the Geordie in exile and I have just lost two and a half pounds of unwanted lard in my first week at Slimming world. The thing is I didn’t really get started until late on the third day as I did not want to waste the synnie things which were in the fridge. So here goes for week two. I also managed to try some almond milk added to home made soup and porridge.

  141. So happy I found this site, you should be prescribed as a cure for depression! I cant wait to start back at Slimming World tomorrow, thanks guys.
    Amy

  142. I cannot believe it has taken me this long to find you – I have not stopped laughing reading your blogs, cannot wait to make some of your scrumptious recipes and get going with Droptober – totally love it, thank you.

  143. Hi, just signed up to follow your blog and liked your facebook page – have already shared with friends and family – love it – thanks so much – I havent laughed so much in ages – if my SW class was run the way your ideal one would be I would probably stay to group too!! I love the idea of a sticker for being able to see your toes :O) Loved the overnight oats ideas – I laughed so much about the cooked rubarb I think a little pee came out!!!!
    Much love

  144. Hi. I have just been out to Kent’s answer to Garrads of Bond Street – Claires Accessories . This was to buy ring snuggies to make my rings fit again . My wedding ring was starting to become dangerously loose following the first four weeks of my Slimming World diet. Result

    • Sorry! We both hit a very busy patch at work and then we both fell unwell too :'( but we’ll be back up and running soon!

  145. just wanted to say thank you for your wonderful site, keeps me going on the long hard slog. Any chance you or you followers have any gluten free biscuit/cake recipes that i can make that aren’t loaded in bags of sugar. My evening in with Mrs Crimble and her cakes costs about 7 to 9 syns for a pretty small biscuit . and stopping at one doesn’t seem to happen for me! Hope Paul is soon better

    • Ah thank you πŸ™‚ we haven’t got a gluten-free biscuit recipe yet but we’ll see if we can work one out πŸ™‚

  146. Wow,that would be great , I am sure all those GFfffers out there would appreciate it. All my old GF recipes ,pre SW days, contain Xantham gum , sort of corsets for cakes to hold them up. So don’t be perturbed if everything looks like a house brick that’s just par for the course! Xantham gum did fool the SW online site it obviously has a fettish for wine gums. Just tried baking chocolate orange slimming world oat cookies. A recipe off the internet ,It contains the obligatory orange sprinkled with chocolate yoghurt ,looked like something the dog had brought up and has baked like a flattish thick soft biscuit. At just over one syn per biscuit tastes a bit eggy but hey ho…….Mrs Crimble eat your heart out

  147. Oh my days… you have made a miserable old bint very happy…. hilarious but had to stop after the first two reads as I was wetting myself, my face was soaking (with tears of laughter and not the other I assure you) and my tummy hurt. Going to tell everyone I know with a sense of humour to get on board…. bloody fab

  148. Love ur blog- here to subscribe. Just tried your chicken, sweet potato and chive risotto. Absolutely delicious! Started back to slimming world today and this blog has made me really excited about it all. Keep doing what your doing. ?

  149. Friend of mine told me of you both so I checked you out lol so glad I did I’m struggling at mo with the whole syn and food thing at the moment and your recipe are the nuts you are both such a inspiration your posts are quirky and funny you’ve certainly cheered me up , love you guys ? Xxxx

  150. Hoping to become sylphlike so the lads on the construction site stop taking the piss and shouting “wide load coming through” due to the size of my arse.

  151. Could do with a kick in the butt, I was doing so well Untill I had surgery on both of my feet, 3 weeks off work andI have probably put about a stone back on. So need to get back into healthy eating before Christmas.

  152. This site is so funny. But as a slimming world member the recipes are brill. Long may it continue. You make me laugh with every blog you write.

  153. I came across this site by accident, however having looked more closely, I found myself glued to it, (araldite strength). It made me laugh so much, I couldn’t believe what I was reading. Absolute quality. The other let’s say, sites which help you shed fat, are so boring, they have as much personality not dissimilar to a root vegetable. This site is going to make me lose the extra pounds I have put on. I just love reading it.

  154. I feel soooo bad, I’ve got a repeat of children in need diy sos on and I’m in stitches reading your blog ( I am going to hell ) you two are fab, I love you both

  155. Hello fellow Northumbrians – but I am originally welsh!!! Thank you so much for a fantastic site, which I found by accident. I have not laughed so much in months, the recipes are so inspiring and you make everything sound so simple! Thank you also for your suggestions instead of fry-lite, many baking trays etc ruined, but not anymore thanks to you! I have a fair way to go on the losing weight side, but had a jolt to the old body on 16 December when I went into heart failure just before a routine op! Thankfully I was in the right place at the right time as they say, and am here to tell the story, your blog has cheered me up no end and you’ve given me fantastic ideas for healthy meals! Once again – thank you from the bottom of my heart (yes its still ticking!!)

  156. Fab recipes and an uplifting read to distract me when the going gets tough & I want to break out the bread & biscuits! I think a telly channel should offer you a series……

  157. Trying to get added to your blog page. I have input my address into the box a couple of times but haven’t received any activation mail from you. Can you help, please?

  158. Just got my two stone award at Slimming World. Only half a stone to go to target and always on the look out for new recipes.

  159. I must have lost quite a few ounces laughing at your blog. Who knew losing weight could be such fun? Thanks guys. You have cheered up a miserable Sunday evening for me and I’m in awe of all these great recipes. Thanks for all your hard work. πŸ˜€

  160. So refreshing to find you guys! Just finished reading all your blog and other stuff. The recipes are great. Definitely my kind of dieting.

    Do you like your followers to share their own recipes with you?

    Today is a first step to a 2-3 stone weight loss … with help from you!

    Thank you ?

    • You can do it! And we LOVE it when people share recipes with us – we sometimes find it hard to think of new stuff so suggestions are always welcome!

  161. This is an honest funny site, I like the food ideas, might even try cooking( no just kidding) I’ll stick to eating fried eggs in a bowl with beans and spaghetti hoops.
    Please add me to your blog?
    I’m all a long way away, well ok maybe not on the other end of the A69.

  162. I’ve just discovered you – fantastic. I need to lose weight and this is such a friendly way of doing it, so thanks in advance.

  163. I was actually crying with laughter reading SW Frequently Asked Questions and the recipes are great
    I thought opposites were meant to attract, i,m 5ft 10in and my better half 5ft AND 1/2 inch, what happened with you two? As a bloke i can understand her always wanting to put emphasis on the extra half inch. Keep up the great work and i hope you are both living the lifestyle i’d like to be accustomed too.
