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,…

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…

Third weigh-in – Slimming World

Miracle of miracles I lost half a pound today despite my incredibly boozy Bank Holiday camping trip.  I did stick to Slimming World food (on the whole) but I drank about 60 syns a day! I hope to lose a bit more next week but am very pleased with my 7.5lbs in 3 weeks. Wish…

Second weigh-in – Slimming World

Just a quickie today as I’ve got to get ready for a Bank Holiday camping trip (which explains the rain!).  I am pleased to say that I lost another 1.5lbs at group today and earnt myself an half stone certificate to boot. Naturally I am very pleased but also a little nervous that I will…

My first group weigh-in

After I finally joined a slimming club… a week or so ago I had my first weigh in on Friday and I am pleased to say that I lost 5.5lbs – yes 5.5lbs!  This is the most weight I’ve lost in just one week in many a year and I am naturally very chuffed. So what…
