Thinking Slimmer - Week 1

The fat bird slim challenge continues, I stopped Slimming World not that it wasn't working for me but we had about 3 months of sickness and I lost motivation. I think I have put on at least 1/2 stone of what I lost but I am ready to get going again. 

I am trying Thinking Slimmer Slimpod and Fitpod. (here comes the science part)

Slimpods are a series of unique voice recordings which help people to achieve effective weight loss, whether you want to lose 5lbs or 5 stones. Unlike other methods of losing weight, there are no diets, no calorie counting and no willpower required. Slimpods have been developed by Harley Street experts and use modern approaches to the science of unconscious persuasion to gently retune the mind and adjust the way slimmers think about the world, especially in relation to food, health and fitness. Because it's like having your own personal mind coach, weight loss becomes simple and effortless.

I have been listening every night for a week and I have started to notice a difference already. Not in actual weight loss but in my eating habits. I am snacking less, making healthier choices and finding ways to get moving more, which strangely has been housework which I hate! I really enjoy listening to the pods, I find Trevor's voice very soothing and I feel completely relaxed before I go to bed. I am not expecting overnight miracles but if I carry on the way I am I will be slimmer for my sisters wedding in November. 

As part of the Thinking Slimmer blogger programme I have been sent some XPG Jenni Falconer clothes from Debenhams to exercise in.

Dodgy picture I know!

They are really nice and I am looking forward to doing actual exercise in them, this week I am trying Zumba on the wii. 

I will keep you updated with my progress.


  1. keep at it, I lost loads on it last year! but it did put me off food completely for a while :/

  2. Keep going, you are doing fab x

  3. I seriously need to get back to mine. Was doing really well, then kept getting ill so couldn't exercise and started eating badly. Think I need to do something like this again to get my willpower back.
    Good luck with yours.

  4. I have gained a lot while reading your blog. I will definitely share this information with my friends.
    Thanks for sharing.
