Weight Loss Update - 1 Month In - 16 lbs Down

The photos probably mean that I could make this pretty much a world less first weight loss update post but that really wouldn't be the whole story.

In my first month back using my Slim Pod and being super careful, watching what I'm eating I've lost a huge 16 lbs, yes 1 stone and 2 lbs. I can't quite believe I've lost that much in such a short period of time but it only goes to show that I was probably eating way than I should be and way more naughty things than I should be.

I haven't denied myself anything I've just made a serious effort to limit the naughty things. Apart from that the only real changes I've made are making sure that I always eat breakfast - a big one it really sets you up for the day, eating at least 5 different portions of fruit and vegetables a day - very important especially if your a vegetarian and drinking at least two litres of water a day - which keeps you hydrated and keeps you feeling full.

It's amazing how being a bit more careful can yield such great results. It's even more surprising when you consider that I haven't done any real exercise yet instead all I've tried to is up my physical activity a bit. Every movement we make is exercise and can help us to burn calories, so when the body has been willing I've done a bit more housework, a bit more physical work when I've been cooking and of course don't forget that a little look round the shops counts as exercise too, and I've done that a couple of times over the last 4 or so weeks too.

I've also being using the Thinking Slimmer Slim, Chill and Fit Pods again as part of my nightly routine. They've really helped to keep my motivation up and keep my thinking positive when I've felt as though I'm wobbling a bit. As I said once before they've also helped me to establish a better, and more relaxed nighttime routine.

So after a successful January I'm feeling more motivated than ever that I can achieve the results that I want. If I was doing Slimming World this week would be classed as my Star week, I'm sure all you ladies have an idea of what means, so I'm trying to deal with cravings and bloating but trying to cut down my salt intake and by keeping up my water intake - hopefully it shouldn't effect this week to much but even if I gain on Monday I can deal with that.

Looking forward to the rest of February, I'm just planning exactly what I've been doing, watching, what I eat, and listening to my Slim Pod. I'm feeling a bit rubbish at the moment but when I start feeling a bit better I'm hoping to do a little bit of gentle yoga and stretching exercises using an fabulous DVD which is especially for people with CFS.

Thanks to all of you for your support both on Twitter and on Instagram I really do appreciate it. If you want to find out more about my weight loss journey before next months updates please follow me on either of these platforms or check out my Weight Tracker page xx
