He’s Not Fat – He’s Big Boned!

Written by Lauren. Posted in General

When the Health Visitor first visited after Spud was born she handed me a red book.  The Personal Child Health Record or PCHR.  As a first time Mum i was excited about everything that I was given for him and filled it out perfectly.  I thought the weight charts were brilliant and thought that they were great for letting me know just how well Spud was growing.  It was probably the only thing that kept me on track when Spud and I developed our hideous relationship with food.

Thinking Slimmer

Written by Lauren. Posted in Thinking Slimmer

After I wrote Realisation I spent a few days really down about my body.  I used to be really lucky and be able to eat anything without gaining but then age and babies do a lot to you.  I was pointed in the direction of Thinking Slimmer.  They help you to lose weight naturally without an exercise plan or diet in place, just with a change of attitude and eating habits.  It takes ten minutes a day (when you are in bed no less!) and within 21 days most people see the effects.

I decided to give it a go and was contacted to talk about what plan would best suit me.  Now I am a chocolate fiend.  I could quite happily eat nothing but chocolate even if sometimes it doesn’t satisfy my craving.  I will put to kids to bed and then leave the baby monitor with the Hubby so that I can go out and get my fix.  If he is at work and I can’t go and get any, I feel extreme disappointment.  It’s so bad that sometimes when he has been working I have walked with the boys to the shop before their bedtime, to stock up for my evening!  I have noticed recently that I am suffering from the bad side effects of chocolate – the sugar levels peaking and dropping, mood swings and of course weight gain.  So it was decided that perhaps I should try the Chocoholics Slimpod to start with and nip that bad habit in the bud.

I received my complimentary Chillpod and immediately gave it a quick listen to see what I was up against.  Trevor, the voice of Slimpod, certainly knows how to get you listening.  He has one of those voices that you just can’t block out, you just have to listen to every word that it is saying!  I started on it at bedtime last night and truly felt myself relaxing which is a huge bonus because I usually get into bed and start thinking.  Every worry pops into my head just as I am trying to get to sleep.  I will be starting on my Chocoholics Slimpod tonight which I am really torn about!  The addict inside me is telling me that I will miss chocolate, that I shouldn’t do it because we NEED chocolate but I am determined that my husband willpower will win and I will put those headphones in and press play when I get into bed!

Wish me luck everyone, here is to the start of my 21 days!
