In the Summer I started listening to my slimpod and all was going well until we went on holiday and with every intention of listening to it I didn't. When the kids went back to school in September I decided to give it another go to help me shift those extra pounds put on over the Summer but to be honest my listening was a bit hit and miss, if the ipad wasn't next to my bed I never went looking for it and therefore didn't listen. At the beginning of October, when we first received our invite to the Tots100 Christmas Party, I decided that I needed to step it up a gear and do something about shifting those pounds before Christmas. I downloaded the 'Drop 2 jeans sizes' track onto my new phone making it easier to listen at bedtime and have listened every night since (except for one when I'd had rather a lot to drink and was staying at a friend's house).
Over the last 2 months I have lost 12 pounds and although I still have a long way to go until I am completely happy I'm getting there. I even shocked myself and bought a pair of skinny jeans for the Christmas Party (in a smaller size). My husband (after saying that me & skinny don't normally go in the same sentence) said they looked great on me & were really flattering - I'm still not 100% sure but after a few wines I'm sure I won't care!
For the first time in my adult life I have managed to lose weight without the slog of dieting and it's great. I've done Weight Watchers successfully in the past but all that point counting can become a bit obsessive and time consuming. With Thinking Slimmer I just don't seem to be thinking about food as much and I'm eating more meals with the family rather than cooking something separate that is 'healthier'. I've even got my baking mojo back as I feel that I can bake cakes and not have to eat them [all] now!
I am however worrying about Christmas though, however careful I am I always manage to put on a few pounds over the Christmas period. This is where the lovely Sandra from Thinking Slimmer has come to my rescue with a 'Keep The Pounds Off Over Xmas' Slimpod download. You can benefit from this too as from now until 20th December you can download the slimpod for FREE by going to the Thinking Slimmer Facebook page (just click on the image below) and click the Like button.

Slimpods are special voice recordings which use a unique hypnosis method to retune the mind to eat less. You listen for just 10 minutes a day and don't need to diet or count calories.
Sandra, a Harley Street hypnotherapist, says: “You’ll still be able to enjoy yourself but the Slimpod will make you want smaller portions of everything. No matter what diet you’ve been on before Christmas, our Slimpod downloads will look after your waistline for you.
"The great thing is there’s no willpower involved. You get on with enjoying Christmas while your mind gets on with controlling your weight." Mother of two Alison Segal, from Eastcote, Middlesex, used the Slimpod last year and lost 24lbs in three months. “I'm really looking forward to Christmas and the party season again now that Slimpod has transformed my life," she says.
"For the first time I don’t have any qualms about feeling hungry and eating Christmas pudding and mince pies. With a Slimpod I didn’t feel tempted at all last year and Christmas was brilliant."
You will also be entitled to free VIP membership of the Thinking Slimmer club, with no obligation to purchase anything, as well as full online access to over 450 pages of articles and videos on food, fashion and fitness. There's also a recipe club with pages of healthy meal ideas.
