A few weeks ago I wrote a post introducing you to Thinking Slimmer. It has been 21 days since I started my Chocoholics Slimpod which claimed it would cure my chocolate addiction. I will admit I was sceptical. I ate chocolate like it went out of fashion. I would go to a shop and spend roughly £5 a time and eat it in a day, even though sometimes it didn’t get close to satisfying the craving.
About 10 days after starting the Slimpod I realised that I hadn’t eaten any chocolate for a couple of days and that I had a bag of M&M’s in my bedroom that had been there for over 24 hours. It was a bit of a shock so I reached for the M&M’s to calm myself down. After about 2 mouthfuls I sealed the bag and put them in my drawer. I have never not finished chocolate but I just didn’t fancy it. That bag of M&M’s lasted me 5 days.
At around about day 17 my Mum mentioned to me that I had lost a fair bit of weight so I should go and weigh myself. I stepped hesitantly onto the scales and looked down. I nearly fell off them! In 17 days I had lost a whopping 11lb! After I had Spud the weight I had gained did just fall off but with Spike I had remained the same weight that I was the day after he was born. I think the sheer amount of calories I was eating through chocolate were counteracting my bodies natural ability to shed baby weight and now that I am not binge eating every night it has started to get rid of the excess weight I was carrying.
I do still eat chocolate. Yesterday I ate a Yorkie. But I ate one Yorkie not three and I enjoyed it.
I love my Slimpod and I know that I may need to re-listen to it in the future if I start to slip but for now I am able to go to sleep without headphones in and still not binge on chocolate every day.
