Bye bye big bum!

I've always had a big bum - my mum says it's a 'lovely bum' (rather embarrassingly).  I remember when I was around 11 years old and my friend and I decided to make our own skirts (with braces no less, how eighties!).  Her mum helped us with the measuring etc and said something about my bum being bigger than my friend's.  It has always stuck with me and I have hated my bottom ever since!

After 2 kids it's not just my bum that's huge though, the rest of me is considerably lardier than before and I reckon I could do with losing a couple of dress sizes.  I suspect I'm around the size 12-14 mark and I'm only 5ft 1 so I look quite round, like a weeble.

So following on from Wendy's post I have decided to give the 'slimpod' a go - given that I haven't been to the gym in around 6 weeks, possibly more.  I need a lazy approach to losing weight and the slimpod looks perfect!  It's basically an MP3 that you listen to for around 10 minutes a day developed by experts in Harley Street and marketed by The Thinking Slimmer website.  They have developed different voice recordings catering towards different weight loss aspirations - ie there is one designed for chocoholics, one that helps you to lose 2 dress sizes and even a 'chillpod', apparently the 'ultimate relaxer'. 

The Thinking Slimmer website says that you can expect to see a difference to your eating habits within 21 days.  Sounds too good to be true perhaps but early reports from various sources look good and to be honest for 30 quid I'm willing to give it a punt!

So having listened to it last night I have started today really well and not eaten the usual array of crap I usually do.  Of course this probably isn't anything to do with the Slimpod but it's a good start.  Lets see what happens in a week or so!  I'm excited!


  1. Can't wait to read about your progress Lisa! I hate traditional diets and exercise...I'm way too undisciplined!! Really hope we both get to where we want to be! xxx

  2. Fab post...I am with you on this one! Come look at my blog and my similar post!!! Your doing better than me x

  3. Thanks both! Wendy I am disciplined for about 2 weeks and then something happens and I think 'sod it' - so it'll be an interesting experiment if nothing else x
