Weight Loss Update - 2 Months In - 22lbs Down





February has been a tough month for me in a lot of ways but thankfully as the pictures show it hasn't affected my weight loss - Over the last month I've managed to lose 6lbs, taking me to 22lbs altogether which is a massive 1st 8lbs.

Normally when I'm stressed or sad I turn to food, and whilst I've had more than a few treats over the last four weeks - I've tried to find other outlets for my feelings including reading a good book, painting my nails and having a nice bath.

I'm not going to beat myself up for the odd bad day though, I've only had one day though where I went over my calorie and fat goal but I built a bridge and got over it and just tried extra hard for the rest of that week and in the end it didn't really make a difference and I still lost. As something I found on Instagram says - "one bad meal won't make you fat just like one good meal won't make you skinny". I think this is so important I've seen so many people bad mouth themselves and beat themselves up for eating something naughty don't do it - it's isn't worth it - you've done it you can't change it so accept it and start afresh.


Go me I've changed! lol ! Seriously though I really don't know where all of this willpower and positivity is coming from - this is one of the few things that I feel positive about at the minute and I think my Thinking Slimmer Slim Pods are at least partially responsible. I'm really starting to change the way I think and as a result I'm seeing changes in the numbers on the scales and I'm I'm starting to see some non scale victories too with some visible physical changes.

One of the things that's helped keep me motivated this month strangely enough has been food and experimenting with new snacks and new recipes. I'm going to do a What I Ate In February post on Friday where you can see some of the things that I've been eating and some of the things that I consider diet saviours.

So another month down and another 8lbs closer to my goal - I'm feeling happy and positive for the month ahead despite a couple of challenges coming my way namely Shrove Tuesday and Mothers Day - but I'm confident enough now to know that two days off won't halt my progress and that I have a bad day I can pull it back round and get back on track x 

I'd like to thank all of you for your support it really does make a difference x I'll do another update in a months time but in the meantime you can follow my weekly updates on both twitter, my weight loss page and on instagram
