12 months, 12 diets – AWOL

Wow – it’s been over a month since my last blog post – 12 months, 12 diets – My Fitness Pal – where I explained that I had a “very busy 3 weeks coming up” and that I was going to try counting calories as the next diet in my Twelve months twelve different diets! challenge….

Hypnotherapy – the post-mortem

I have not really written about my experiences and results whilst using hypnotherapy for weight loss and the reason for this is I didn’t really see any results.  I lost 1.5lbs whilst using the Virtual Gastric Band app which is pretty unimpressive. It wasn’t that I didn’t like the app, it was inexpensive and, as…

Holiday weigh-in

So far on my Slimming World ‘journey’ I’ve not gained at group, a fact that I am rather proud of as I tend to struggle with consistency.  However, after a two week holiday, where I was mindful of what I ate but certainly wasn’t counting syns, I knew that there was a chance that this…

Running and weight loss update

I’ve not written a blog since the 4th of July but, for once, this isn’t because I’ve been off plan but because I’ve been pretty busy and for the past two weeks I’ve been on my hols. Running I am still sticking to my half marathon training plan and am now up to 7 miles,…

My running week – 25th June to 1st July

Blimey I find it hard to motivate myself to run when it is so hot outside, but I find that having a training programme that I need to follow does help me to get the runs done. Last week we needed to do 2 miles, 2 miles and 4 miles and it all started well…

My running week – 18th to 24th June

Well it’s been a while since I’ve had a full week’s running to report on, but last week I achieved it … yippee. It is 11 weeks until my first half marathon and so last week I needed to start following my 12 week training plan.  The plan required me to run 3 times (2…

Fifth weigh-in – Slimming World

Another 1lb off at club yesterday, which is a loss of 9lbs in the past 5 weeks.  I’ll take that. This week is going to be more troublesome, my son comes home for a 4 day weekend this afternoon and we have so many food (and alcohol) related treats planned that I just hope to…

Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis

In a bid to supplement my weight loss, while following the Slimming World plan, I have embarked on a course of hypnotherapy using an app called ‘Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis – Lose Weight Fast!’.  The programme is written by Sue Peckham and James Holmes who make the following claims: AS SEEN on CNN, BBC, Daily…

12 months, 12 diets – Hypnotherapy

After four successful weeks following the principles of Slimming World it is time to choose a new diet for my 12 months, 12 diets experiment.  As I have been doing so well on Slimming World, and because I have finally plucked up the courage to join my local Slimming World group, I wanted to find…

Fourth weigh-in – Slimming World

After a flying start, this Slimming World malarkey is getting a little harder.  I weighed in at club this morning and again I had only lost half a pound.  Whilst this brings my total weight loss in 4 weeks to 8lbs (a result I can only be happy about), this is less impressive if I…
