Apparently French women have this amazing capacity to remain skinny. I have been told this several times. Well, I am afraid that’s just another unfounded myth.
I normally don’t do reviews on this blog, but today will be an exception. The thing is, when I came back from Bali, all this coconut milk and amazing food had taken its toll. I simply needed to loose some weight. I am not obese, I was simply fatter and felt that I had to do something.
But I don’t do diets -I find them boring, and I always end up putting the weight back on anyway. I love good food. I bake my own bread. You see, good bread is notoriously difficult to find in London, it usually tastes like the plastic bag it is wrapped in. I live for olive oil, chocolate, tiramisu and pasta. I try to exercise a lot to burn the calories. I love running. But I needed something more this time. A little help.
So, when I received a PR agency request from the lovely Sasha to review the Thinking Slimmer Slimpod (http://thinkingslimmer.com/ ), I thought that, after all, I had only weight to loose. I decided to give it a go. To be frank, I was a bit skeptical at first. How can this work? How is this even possible?
Well, all you have to do is spend 10 mins every day listening to your Slimpod. I usually do this in the evening. It is all about positive thinking, and making changes at your own pace in your eating habits.
The unexpected benefit of the approach is that I often am sound asleep by the end of the Slimpod, and, as a result, my quality of sleep has greatly improved. In 3 weeks, I have lost a bit more than 2 kgs, or 5 lbs. I have noticed some little changes too: no sugar in my yogurt or my morning’s lemon juice. Less sugary snacks as well. All in all, I am more relaxed despite the fact that I stopped being employed and am running my own business. In short, I am simply more confident and I am not using food to reassure myself, which is unexpected. Maybe life is easier that I thought?
Me being me, I want to continue and loose more weight. Why do I keep wanting more?
Maybe because I am on my way to the new me.
I was given a free Slimpod but wasn’t paid for this post. The opinion in this post is therefore my own!
