You may have noticed that I don't do product reviews on this page any more. The main reason for that is:
1. the blogging world is saturated enough with reviewers
2. the legal/financial side is too complicated for me.
However, if I love a product enough (whether gifted to me, or purchased), I will share it with you. Such a thing has happened. Yesterday, across social media, I shared this comparison picture:
|(Same dress, worn one year apart)|
I loved the responses I got, they were overwhelming, for which I can't thank everyone enough! Yes, I can see the changes, my shoulders, my stomach, in all honesty everything!
So I thought I would share how I've done it, and it's not a diet, a capsule or a juice. It's a 'slimpod', simply something I listen to every night, as I go to sleep! I have the gold package, which has a fitpod, slimpod and a chillpod. When I originally started on this, one year ago, it was as part of a focus group. The owner wanted people involved that were overweight, needed help, and felt nothing was working. That kind of sums me up perfectly!
So I began my THINKING SLIMMER journey (click on the name for the official site). At first, I didn't feel any difference, I was quite sceptical. I persisted, following the programme, listening every night, marking my positives each day etc.
Slowly, I started to notice things were changing with my attitude to food. I started to, unconsciously, make better choices. Not only that, I noticed that my 'bad' choices didn't feel so bad. For example: If I wanted a biscuit, I would have a biscuit, enjoy it, then move on. I wouldn't eat a biscuit, feel guilty, then scoff the whole packet! (C'mon, we've all been there).
Now, a year later: I've dropped a couple of dress sizes, I'm now comfortably in a UK size 18. The last time I had a takeaway, I didn't enjoy it so much when I actually ate it. I can leave food on a plate, when I'm full.
Most of all, I'm enjoying my food. I don't feel like I'm on a diet, because I'm not. I'm enjoying the exercise I partake in, even though my physical problems stop me from going sometimes.
I've wanted to write this post for a while, I just didn't want you to feel like I've 'sold out'. It's just that so many people asked what I've been doing, to lose weight, I thought I should tell you.
If you are struggling to lose weight, have given up on diets, give the thinking slimmer link a tap. The group and Sandra that runs it, are so supportive! There is a closed group on facebook to join and Sandra has her own blog on the site, full of useful ideas.
(Quick edit. If you would like to a chance to win a gold package for yourself, click this link: A Thinking Slimmer Giveaway!)
I'm looking forward to dropping to a size 16 now, hopefully before the end of summer. For the first time in my life I actually feel like I'm going to do it!
