I personally believe that finding the right diet product or slender plan is the key to loosing weight successfully.  There are lots of weight loss products out there and it can quickly feel very overwhelming when you are looking to start a diet.  It’s important to choose a weight loss plan that is going to fit with your lifestyle and that you will enjoy.  The protein world slender plan is simple to follow and effective, ticking two very important boxes straight away. When you are thinking about ‘whether the protein

It’s been nearly a month since my last Slimming World update and I thought I’d let you know how I’ve been getting on.  I have lost a total of 5 1/2 lbs in the last few weeks, and I’m really happy with the progress I’ve been making.  The total weight loss with Slimming World is now 1 stone and 5 1/2 lbs.  I think my Slimming World chocolate mug cake is saving me from my sweet tooth and falling off the wagon.  I’ve also been eating a lot more vegetables.  This

My weight loss journey update is fashionably late, by a whole week.  I actually had a night out last week, and it effected my blogging schedule.  I was lucky enough to go to the local premiere of the latest Matt Damon film, The Martian.  My sister took me to our local cinema where they were having an event to celebrate it’s new deluxe status.  You can now enjoy a film at Nottingham’s Showcase Cinema in fully reclining leather seats!  How’s that for cinema comfort.  It worked for me, I can tell you!

I don’t feel I’ve been as on track with my weight loss journey this week folks as I have been before.   This wasn’t the plan with my holiday to Costa Brava only 3 weeks away now.  I was meant to be bursting with motivation and nailing another dress size before our trip for some winter sun.  Especially after last weeks revelations.

Firstly readers, I must apologise that my Thinking Thin post is late this week. I like to share my weight loss update on a Thursday, but my schedule has been completely out of the window buy this and my house turning into a TV studio for the majority of my working days this week.  This has meant that eating well has slightly slipped in priority along with my blogging. And sometimes, life just happens, right?  But how do we not let it throw us of course with our weight loss?

Hello everyone and welcome back to another week of my weight loss series ‘Thinking Thin’.  Thanks so much for putting up with my ramblings last week and all your kind comments.  I can’t begin to tell you how much it helped to get all that off my chest.  I must learn not to let things whir round in my head and share them either on my blog or with a friendly ear.  It brings a whole new perspective to things don’t you think?

These last few weeks I’ve been back on my weight loss mission.  I’ve been sharing weekly updates of my challenges and how I’m trying to overcome them in my series, Thinking Thin.  If you’ve haven’t stopped by yet, you can catch up with all the posts right here.  I’m sure you’ll find some nuggets of inspiration, if weight is something you struggle with. One thing that has really hit me is how much we reward ourselves with food, or use it as a way of cheering ourselves up after a

Welcome back to another week of Thinking Thin Thursday.  It’s been no secret on my blog about how much I’ve struggled with my fluctuating weight and relationship with food over the years. If this is your first time here, Thinking Thin is a weekly therapy post where I can explore what helps me to stay in control of my diet and learn more about my relationship with food. I cannot stress enough to you all how much of an impact giving up caffeine has had on the progress I’ve made.  If

Welcome back to another week of Thinking Thin Thursday.  I was a little bit worried about catching up with you all this week and getting on the scales after our weekend break in Liverpool.  While I was away from home and eating out with the family it was harder to stay on track, so I wondered if I’d made any progress at all. I’m pleased to report that I’ve lost a further 2lbs, which makes a total of 8lbs altogether.  I’m so happy with this, as I really expected that I would

Hello and welcome back to another week of Thinking Thin.  I really hope you’re enjoying my weekly updates and tips about weight loss.  I genuinely know how hard it is to shed those pounds and have spent most of my life yo-yoing up and down the scales.  This week I’ve got something will help us all out.  If you’ve not heard of the compound effect, read on.  It could make a big difference to your weight loss journey. I think we all know that if we eat less and move

Welcome back to Thinking Thin Thursday!  I hope you’ve had a good week and you are winning when it comes to thinking thin.  Since last week when I realised things had to change I decided to focus on one aspect of my diet, and to my surprise it really has made a massive difference. Since becoming a Mum for the third time, I’d slipped back into my old coffee drinking ways.    A sleep deprived Mum needs her caffeine, right?  Or that was my excuse anyway.  The odd cup here

If you read my gratitude post last week you’ll already know I’m not very consistent. It’s a skill I long to possess but continues to elude me after a period of time.  I’m pleased to say those periods of time are getting longer, so that is progress, right?  I think we all have a trait we long to have that we think might make us a better person, or maybe there’s a few? I’ve not posted in Thinking Thin for a while, because I have been so busy losing weight

The weight loss journey so far is going great.  I’ve lost a total of 2 stone in less than 2 months.  My baby weight has gone and then some, so I’m really chuffed.  I’ve also seen real consistent changes in my behaviour towards food because of Thinking Thin, so I really hope it’s helping you too. I leave food on my plate that isn’t healthy.  This was completely unheard of.  My food mantra used to be, ‘waste not want not’, but it was causing me to dramatically over eat and gain weight.

It’s definitely time for an update in my weight loss journey.  If you’ve not caught up with this series yet come and found out the handy tips I’ve been sharing to help you boost your healthy weight loss plan. The aim of Thinking Thin is to help me and you reprogram some of the thinking that hinders our weight loss so that we then change our behaviours around food, for good.  I left you with some helpful cheats last time for when you have slipped off the old diet wagon.  It would

Welcome to my latest Thinking Thin post.  I have some excellent progress to report and I’ve decided it’s only fair to let you all know where I started out at.  When I started making healthy changes to my diet 4 weeks ago I weighed in at 17st 4lbs.  That was the figure that shocked me into action due to the physical toll carrying that amount of weight was having on my body.   At weigh in this week I was down to 16st 2lbs!  A huge loss of 16lbs!  It

Monday was weigh in day and I’m pleased to say I’ve become thinner by 2 1/2 pounds!  That’s a total of 8 1/2 pounds.  I’m so happy with this progress, my size is heading in the right direction so I must be getting something right.   In my last post I talked about the emotional roller coaster of jumping on and off the scales.  I made progress but I did step on the scales once on a non weigh in day.  It was much better than previously and because I did

I’ve been making changes to my eating to make it healthier for the last 2 weeks.  Having the vision board is definitely helping me stay on track with being more healthy.  I’ve only fallen off the wagon once which I’m really pleased with.  I’m a lady who is known to binge, to often to mention!   It was because I wasn’t organised to be honest.  The evening meal wasn’t as healthy as it could have been, and the packet of biscuits and chocolate that followed was positively dirty!  It turned into

My weight has been a constant issue for me.  I was a ‘chubby’ child and took a lot of stick because of it.  I have had a few slender years in my early twenties and then again before I met my husband, but the rest of the time I have been over weight.   I have also had 2 pregnancies in the last 3 years, both plagued with pelvic girdle pain so have gained more than my fair share of baby weight.  I need to get the better of this
