A Fresh Start - Losing Weight With Thinking Slimmer, Slim Pod And Debenhams

Well after 2 weeks of excess, 2 birthdays, 2 birthday teas, 5 meals out, lots of gluten free cakes, and several boxes of birthday chocolates,  it's hardly a surprise that the diet has pretty much gone out of the window and I'm pretty much back where I started and just 1lb down from my original starting weight.

Today though is the first day of a new beginning, I'm starting with a clean slate and I'm going to tackle those excess pounds and lose some weight for summer. I've done it in the past and I KNOW that I can do it again.

What makes you think you not going to fail this time? I hear you cry, well I've got a little bit of help this time round. Whilst my computer was in laptop hospital I received an email on behalf of Debenhams and Thinking Slimmer regarding their Beach Body promotion. We all know who Debenhams are but what about Thinking Slimmer?

Well Thinking Slimmer are the creators of the SlimPod, a unique and ground breaking weight loss method that doesn't rely on diet and exercise. Instead it's all about helping you to change your mindset so that you eat less and achieve the goals that you've set yourself.

All you do is chose the Slim Pod to suit your goals, or lifestyle and either download it or buy the cd. This isn't hypnosis instead its all about unconcious persuasion. The idea that listening to the download for just 10 minutes a day can play a major role in changing our thoughts and behaviours. I know some of you are probably thinking that this sounds a bit like mumbo jumbo, but things like this have been used successfully in the past to aid all sorts of behavioural changes such as stopping smoking so it can work. The Slim Pod system has been used and endorsed by an NHS consultant psychiatrist who declared the effects as profound and possibly life changing which sounds good to me :)

I was given a voucher to download the Slim Pod "Create That Summer Beach Body" worth £29.99 which is now on my laptop and on my ipod for night time listening. The download aims to help you change your attitude towards food and think more positively about achieving the beach body of your dreams. I listened to it for the first time last night and I have to say that it made me feel utterly calm and relaxed - there is no putting you down and making you feel bad about yourself, this is all about making you calm and feel more positive about achieving the body and appearance that you want. You also get free online support from the Thinking Slimmer forums, facebook and on twitter and a personal handbook you can download to help you set goals and complete your weight loss targets.

Since the aim of this Slim Pod is all about achieving the beach body of your dreams, I was given the opportunity to chose a swimsuit of my choice from the newly launched Reger By Janet Reger swimwear line at Debenhams.

The are a few block colours in the line but for me it was all about the florals so in the end I went for a one piece - the Designer Grey Floral Twist Halter Neck Swimsuit.

It is absolutely gorgeous in the flesh, the quality is superb and the colours are so vibrant. I haven't got the guts to model it myself at the moment so my beloved dress makers dummy has come into play again x I've also gone for a size below what I would wear at the moment to hopefully account for any weight loss. If I achieve my initial weight loss goal I may be brave enough to model it for you :) hopefully on a sun lounger somewhere warm and sunny or if not before an aqua therapy session.

I know things like this aren't for everyone and if your happy with your figure I hold my hands up to you and say good on you, but I'm not, I've gone from a size 12 to a size 18-20 in less than 7 years due to illness and medication and to be honest it's starting to bring me down, and for that reason I'm willing to give anything a go. You don't need to calorie count or diet with the Slim Pod but to be honest I'm going to, I have a lot of weight to lose and I'm hoping that with a bit of gentle persuasion and conditioning that I will be able to lose some weight and feel better about myself.

I'll keep you posted as to how I'm getting on both with my weight loss and with the Slim Pod on my main blog page and of course on my weight tracker page.
