Losing weight is hard. It's even harder if you hate the way you look and have low self-esteem like I do. Over the past few months, I have been listening to the Slimpod from Thinking Slimmer in a bid to help me feel confident in myself whilst trying to lose those extra pounds.
When I would diet in the past it would be a struggle of trying to stay on plan whilst also seeing what goodies we had in the house and ending up eating the wrong things, a falling off the wagon.
That was a hard thing to go through. To feel disappointed in yourself but not able to do anything about it. It was like I had a habit, pushing my towards bad food. It was a habit that I just couldn't kick.
It made me sad, it made me unhappy, and it made me scared for the future if I was to keep putting weight on at the rate I was doing so.
I used to make excuses. Oh, it's baby weight. I just need to work off my mummy tummy. Having a child is hard, so having 3 was even harder. This actually made everything worse as I'd have food in the house for them and would end up eating it myself whilst they napped.
So obviously, when I started listening to the Slimpod, I was scared that it would be just another wagon to fall off.
But you know what, Thinking Slimmer isn't a diet plan. There is a no wagon to fall off. This made me happy straight away to know that I could never fail at doing it. As long as I am listening every day, I would be working towards my ultimate goal of feeling better in my own body.
