So here is ladies and gentleman, I am about to embark on the Slimpod Weight Loss challenge hosted by the lovely Debbie at Motivating Mum as its time to make the changes emotional ones as well as the physical ones.
This time round I am on my 3rd attempt to lose weight. My first came about after Joshua was born I embarked on the dieting band waggon and did well, shedding 5 stones in just over a year. I then after a break and a stone added back to my waistline I went back to dieting again and lost 0.5 stones .. then decided to give up smoking in October ….. and between then and now I have officially added another 2 stones and 9 lbs back on making my current weight:

This is by far the biggest I have been while un-pregnant and I am not only disgusted with myself, but I have given myself the emotional and mental battering that are so typical of us weight loss seekers!
So this is where things are going to change … I am going to tackle my weight loss from every angle, exercise, healthy diet and some mental encouragement in the form a Slimpod.
Up until a few weeks ago I was oblivious to a “Slimpod” and so when I realised that a Slimpod is a recording which you listen to each day that is supposed to help retrain your brain I thought it was time to give it a go and see what happens!
I am not going to sit back on my laurels either as I have even returned to the gym this week after waiting for my stitches to come out from my recent op. I have even gone back to tracking my activity with the Fitbug Orb since I am now being active now too!
So its with great joy I am stepping back into this journey with renewed vigor and optimism.
From fat to fab …….. here I come ……..
