Review: Thinking Slimmer – yeh right!


Diets don’t work and they certainly don’t work on me I just land up eating all the things I should not be eating then feel awful and make myself sick. Yup you guessed it I was a Bulimic in a past life. Yum!
Knowing that it is no good for me to contemplate dieting because I just get to stressed and do all the things you shouldn’t, when I read about the opportunity to try out Thinking Slimmer it seemed the answer to my prayers. Over the past nine years I have successfully watched myself get larger and larger, not massively large but enough to upset me and to make me feel a total failure in these vacuous times. I know I shouldn’t think like that but I do because it is extremely difficult not to when wherever you look you are bombarded with pictures, programmes, magazine articles, fashion shows, adverts and the like which basically equate slightly chunkier more curvaceous people as being lazy good for nothings who are clearly substandard.
Why should I have got bigger, well having children as we all know doesn’t help and getting pregnant six times ain’t helpful either. I hasten to add I don’t have six children though I promise I would have loved it if I did have that many. I was blessed with two beautiful boys and I am not complaining. However, as I always say if I knew how hard it was going to be to get them, I would have enjoyed my twenties in London much more!
Anyway at a cheerful 5ft 2 inches, I now weigh in at a handsome 11st 2lbs or roughly 156lbs and I would like to be 9st 8lbs or 134lbs, or as near as dammit. I’m not asking miracles just a bit of help with the will power so that I don’t have to diet, so that I stop eating when I am sad or stressed that I go for a walk instead which is what I know will do me far more good as well as exercise boosts those serotonin levels that make you feel good.
So not asking much am I??? Well here goes…

I do find that getting outside helps my moods. Not always easy to do when you don't feel like doing anything, but great for the mood and the waistline.

Expat Mum - It's something I am counting on esp now the weather is turning colder I'll have to walk that much faster to keep warm and heopfully watch those inches melt away...

I find a good tip is sugar free chewing gum and plenty of water to keep you going when the urge to scoff is just tooo tempting!! Sorry if I sound pious - I'm not, as I sometimes fall off the wagon and eat far too much chocoate, but chewing gum is at the ready for the next day to curb the pangs! Good luck!

I think we all tend to put a bit of weight on in the Winter, Tattie! I had a look at the website you mentioned - interesting. The trouble is that when it's cold I don't feel like poking my nose out side the door.

Hello - I am following Slimming World at the moment and have lost 11.5lb - you are the same height as me - but I am currently at the top end of 11stone and I would like to be 9st 8lb eventually!

Go on you know you want to...
