PEOPLE are always saying that the best thing about Slimpod is not just the weight loss – but the greater confidence it gives them, the inspiration to do extraordinary things and the feeling of liberation they get.
Here’s living proof. At the weekend, a whole host of Podders took part in the 25th London Moonwalk to raise awareness of breast cancer and money to fund life-saving research.
I’m so proud of them all! Not only am I really pleased to congratulate them for walking 26 miles (that’s the same as a marathon) in their fancy bras, I also want to share their success with everyone because I’m sure you will find it inspiring.
The Moonwalk Podders are rightly proud of their achievement
One of the Slimpod groups was organised by the wonderful Amanda, better known in Slimpod Club as Loopy Lou. She told back in January how listening to Slimpod had convinced her that “walking through the streets of London in the middle of the night in my bra, with a few other barmy Podders” was a good idea.
Before Slimpod, she said, she had never shown her tummy to the world, never worn a bikini, never had the confidence to be outgoing. Now she’s a Moonwalk star!
Jumping with joy: Slimpodding twins Louise Harlow and Emma Walton
Some of the Moonwalkers have posted stories and pictures in Slimpod Club. Tammy Snow says: “ I am amazed, I have done 20 miles in under six hours. I feel like I can take on the world. Last November I was in agony, I spent my birthday being investigated for cancer unable to move because of a pain that I had.
“In December I found Slimpod; the changes have been unbelievable – regardless of my weight loss.” She says her next plan is to trek to Everest base camp with some of the Moonwalk ladies – and do you know what, I think she’s serious.
Twins Louise Harlow and Emma Walton were all smiles when they completed the course and threw their arms up in joy at their sense of achievement.
Emma says: “I can’t believe that I walked around in a bra with all my flabby bits in display and I DIDN’T CARE – my body is amazing and Slimpod has given me that back.”

NHS nurse Jen O’Sullivan, who’s a wonderful ambassador for Slimpod, says: “Oh Slimpod. I’ll be forever grateful to you. Over two years of Podding and now I’ve done a full marathon (walking). Thank you doesn’t begin to cover it.”
