THERE are two questions we’re often asked: “How do I get the best out of my Slimpod?” and “How long will it take to see results?” Who better to answer those questions than a seasoned Slimpodder and her experience with ‘Project You’!
Abi Jones has been on the programme for more than a year so she knows what can be achieved with a Slimpod. She lost well over four stone (30+ kg) but says her journey – she calls it Project Abi – is about a whole lot more than weight loss.
As well as being a lot slimmer, she’s also healthier, happier, calmer and more confident. She says: “I never thought I could feel like this.”
When I met Abi over Zoom recently she told me her inspiring story and gave me her three great tips for other Slimpodders. Here’s the video we made:
Here’s a summary of the key points:
** Abi was a yo-yo dieter for years but reached the point where she’d even given up dieting. “I thought nothing works and this is the way it is,” she says. “I didn’t think I deserved investing in.”
** Slimpod has changed Abi’s relationship with food. “I’m in control of it, it’s not in control of me anymore. From very early days I just didn’t want to snack at all but as I’m now running more, I get hungrier so I do snack occasionally. But when I snack now it’s healthy stuff, grapes and seeds because that’s what my mind tells me it wants.”
** “I used to be an emotional eater and would eat because I was lonely or bored. Now I don’t get time to eat because I’m always doing stuff like exercise, which has replaced the boredom.”
** Before Slimpod, Abi used to average as little as 1,000 steps a day. Her daily exercise was walking round a supermarket. Today she averages 13,000 to 14,000 steps a day. “Listening to Slimpod motivated me to get up and do something.”
** Abi’s about to do her fifth goal map because she finds it’s such an important part of her journey. “The goal map helped with focus. But it was more than that – It was part of Project Abi and helped me detach emotionally. The benefit of this was I never thought I would fail.”
** “Trust yourself and the process and see what happens,” says Abi. “If you’re consistent with Slimpod at first, pretty soon it becomes automatic and you build new habits.”
Please leave a comment below to let Abi know what you think. And let me know how Slimpod is having a positive impact on you.
