Balance is always the thing that has been difficult for me. I'm either 100% resolve or I'm just plain greedy. I was watching the documentary about Claire from Steps and I could relate to her issues with food completely. Like me, she could lose weight if there was a purpose behind it, otherwise the lure of the naughty but nice takes control. I'm really hoping this time is different and I can find a happy balance that allows me to enjoy food but still maintain my weightloss. I think this is where the Slimpods win, as long as I want them to work they will. This is definitely my greatest long term challenge and possibly the greatest challenge I've ever faced in my life as a yo-yo dieter.
In the last 2 years my weight has tipped the scales over the 16 stone mark...I'm now 3 stone lighter, but my aim is to lose another half a stone and then maintain it, without the wild fluctuations I have experienced over and over again.
I have a terrible self-image of my body, but the whole hypnosis thing has really helped improve my confidence and self-belief. I can see a change in myself and I want to keep working on that. I'm not happy yet...but I hope I will be soon.
