How am I Doing?

It's been a while since I updated about my Thinking Slimmer journey, so I thought I would share it today.

My whole lifestyle and mindset has changed, drastically, in the last few weeks. Even more than originally! I started on the 'drop 2 dress sizes' pod, then added the 'chillpod' and the 'fitpod'. 

I feel the 'drop sizes' pod has changed my attitude to food, in quite a big way. I've never been able to throw food away, I would finish my own plate, and everyone else's! I no longer do this, which is a huge change. I started by leaving food on the plate, which my hubby noticed as a big change. From that, I went on to serving myself smaller portions, it was like a natural progression, I didn't do it consciously, just noticed it was happening after a while.

I will admit, I didn't lose 2 dress sizes. However, I do think it will happen now, which is such a positive change in attitude for me! 

Thanks to the 'fitpod' I've started Zumba..........me?! Not only am I going, I am absolutely loving it! I've found a great class, super friendly and really fun. I'm actually considering other fitness classes now, as I've been bitten by the bug.

I feel I'm far more relaxed about my weight loss attempts. I also feel like it's sustainable, because I'm not 'dieting'. I can still enjoy my Chinese food etc, because I know have control of what I eat. Although I do find I'm not fancying it as much. If I fancy chips, I tend to cook oven chips. For someone who lives within a stones throw of 5 takeaways, that's one hell of an achievement!

There must be some changes to my shape, as people are commenting on it ALL THE TIME. I think it's time to do a picture update, don't you?

Thanks to the wonderful Sandra (the lady that owns Thinking Slimmer), I am now getting my food choices in order too. She has spoken to me personally, which makes the whole thing easier. She has helped me with understanding what I'm putting into my body, and how it relates to my diabetes.

I feel different. Supported. Like someone really cares about MY journey.

Not only that, I'M starting to care about ME.


  1. That is fantastic to read....You sound so positive and happy! Yay!
    Well done xxx

  2. Oh, very well done! Sounds like you've cracked it and changed your attitude with regard to food. I have that Thinking Slimmer pod. I must start using it again! Presently I'm up and down on my healthy eating plan (it is NOT a diet!!) Weekends are my enemy, although I do enjoy them! xx


I do love comments and read them all, please be nice and tboughful to others x
