At the beginning of last week I published a post about My Goals for 2016 and my first personal goal was losing weight. This is something that is bothering me a lot lately, as I mentioned in that post, I managed to lose about 13 kilos before I was pregnant with my second daughter Sienna. I didn’t gain that weight straight a way but it has definitely been going in the other direction since just before the Summer. Now I have pretty much gained back those 13 kilos!!! 🙁
I feel very disappointed with myself because I didn’t want this to happen. My brain went against what I should actually be doing. It is really a nightmare! Lately I’m starting to feel so uncomfortable with my clothes. I know very well that when you reach this stage you should definitely do something about it.
I have the feeling that starting blogging back in May 2016 didn’t help me as I spent most of my spare time sitting down in front of my laptop which is really bad! I could really use some of that time to be more active I suppose. Now I really want to be more organised. One of the things I also mentioned was to find a balance between my personal life and my blogging life. If I manage to do this I will be able to be healthier.
Also, I need to do this because I’m not only a blogger but a vlogger and there are certain videos that I’m starting to feel uncomfortable to film because of feeling really horrible. I just don’t like looking at myself on camera any more because I start criticising myself. I really feel bad in the videos which doesn’t do any good for my self esteem. I really want to feel confident again but I’m finding it very hard to bring back my will power lately! It is a constant battle and then I just don’t do it any more.
Therefore, you can see I’m in need of a proper plan and I think I have finally found a solution to my problem. I was lucky to be offered the opportunity to try something different. The people from Thinking Slimmer approached me and asked if I’d like to be part of a 12 week program along with a small group of other lovely bloggers who share the same goal as me. They explained to me that this was a different program and that I wasn’t going to be doing a diet. The process is a little bit longer but the results are amazing. As you can see I just had to say YES!! Anything that could help achieve this goal will be welcome for me!! lol.
The program that they were talking about was the Slimpod Gold program, so what is this? Slimpod is a a unique voice recording that you listen to for just nine minutes a day. The programme gently retrains your mind, changing the way you think about food and how you feel about yourself. Slimpods avoid any notion of a diet, instead they gently nudge your unconscious mind towards making better eating choices. Slimpods don’t tell you what to eat or what not to eat but guide your unconscious mind to help it create its own solutions.
I’m very intrigued about this program now. I have been trying it for a few days and have felt some effects but I won’t write anything yet as I will discuss this in more detail in another post. I will try to write about it more often during the 12 weeks so I can update you with my progress, so let’s see if it works!!! Wish me luck! 🙂
Have you heard of the Slimpods from Thinking Slimmer before? What do you think about them? Do you think this is something that you would try? Leave me a comment below as I’m very curious to read what your thoughts are.
*Disclaimer: I received the Slimpod Gold program to try for the period of 12 weeks but everything else is my truly honest opinion.
Thanks for stopping by,
Love you all ❤️
