Recently I was lucky enough to win myself a Slimpod from Thinking Slimmer. I have been wanting one of these for ages but have been umming ahhing about actually making the jump and purchasing one so you can imagine how excited I was to see this tweet:
Woop Woop! It couldn’t of come at more perfect time, to say I need this is a massive understatement. I have tried so many diets, so many different ways of trying (and failing) to lose and keep off the weight but the chocoholic inside always wins in the end and I’m not exactly known for my willpower……
What’s so different about a Slimpod then?
Rather than focussing on what you eat, Thinking Slimmer focus on why you eat what you do. A Slimpod is a recording using cognitive hypnotherapy in which you hear things that will help you to change your eating habits. Was I ready for this? You bet I was!
I received my mp3 download via email, also available on a disc, with the instructions to listen to the intro once, then the chocpod as I am going to sleep every night.
1 Week in: Verdict so far:
It ‘s said that it takes about 28 days on average to form new habits so it is recommended you listen every night for at least this period of time to see noticeable changes and currently I am just under a week in.
Yesterday I bought a large bar of Galaxy salted caramel. I then forgot I had bought it. Later on at my niece’s second birthday I stopped at one slice of the most delicious profiterole cake. This morning I got up at te ungodly hour of 6am and found the fore mentioned Galaxy bar and yes, I am one of those people who can and will eat chocolate as soon as I open my eyes. And I did but…………. I stopped at half a bar, not the whole thing as I may of usually done, ok probably would of done.
So far, I am actually impressed. If it can make a difference this quick I can’t wait to see what it can do after 21 days. I mean I am the ultimate chocoholic and I need something drastic to help me change this so here’s hoping the chocpod is exactly that!
If you would like to take a look and see if a Slimpod could work for you head over to Thinking Slimmer and have a little look.
Pop back next week for to see how I’m getting on in week 2!
