They say seeing is believing so we're proud to show you a small selection of our many Slimpod success stories to demonstrate people's inspiring achievements. You'll see that listening to a Slimpod is about a whole lot more than weight loss - it's also about confidence, self-esteem and being in control of your life. By the way, unlike some websites, we use real people not models. Please note: Everyone is different so results can vary
Have you ever seen a happier looking lady than Barbara Greenwood, one of our Slimpod stars, who went from a size 28 to a size 16 in 16 months - and discovered a new world of fashion, colour and style. “Being size 16 is brilliant, a new lease of life,” says Barbara, 48, from Mansfield. “I'm pretty much in full control of what I eat now.”
Barbara lost six stone - an amazing 84 pounds - with her Slimpod and her nurse recorded her BMI dropping from 46 to 32. For the first time in 15 years, Barbara has been taken off her type 2 diabetes medication. Barbara even completed the 2014 London Marathon! “Thank goodness I found out about Slimpods,” she says, “because 35 years of dieting never made me lose weight. It's as if the Slimpod has reached into my mind and turned down the volume on my appetite.”
In just six months of losing weight by listening to a Drop Two Dress Sizes Slimpod, Sammie Axton has seen a remarkable transformation in her shape – and her life. Sammie, 46, from Denton, Manchester, has lost almost 70 pounds and gone from a size 18/20 to a size 12. At our photoshoot with Sammie she even fitted into one dress that was a size 10 and shouted “Wow! I've got a waist.”
“People say I'm half the woman I was – and that has to be good,” says Sammie. “I'm now the smallest I've been since I was 13 years of age. I used to weigh more than my husband but my daughter said to me the other day 'Mum, where've you gone? You're thinner than me now!” So she's listening to my Slimpods as well now and losing weight, too."
What Darin has achieved with a Slimpod, losing 68lbs and 14 inches off his waistline, is almost unbelievable. And he has now been taken off insulin for his diabetes. "The biggest change I have noticed is that I don't miss Coke Zero, sweets, chocolate bars and crisps. That was an amazing thought when I realised that. I feel happier and at peace with the way my life is changing for the better. I cannot remember the last time I felt this good about myself and positive about my life all at the same time, I feel like I want to burst with excitement. IF I CAN DO THIS ANYONE CAN DO IT.”
Darin was voted male Slimpodder of the Year, he has run the London Marathon, cycled across Cuba and featured in a two-page weight loss spread in the Mirror newspaper. Darin says: “The new me is happy being positive and proactive rather than the old me lounging around feeling sorry for myself and doing nothing about it. I'm Thinking Slimmer, loving life!”
Jo Hallam was the self-styled Queen of Coca Cola. Every week her sweet tooth made her drink up to 40 cans of it, and she loved her bacon sarnies and chocolate too. Problems with dodgy knees meant she did little exercise and her weight crept up to over 12 stone, which at 4ft 11ins (“and a quarter,” insists Jo) meant her dress size was between a 14 and a 16.
After 12 weeks of listening to her Slimpod she'd achieved a remarkable transformation, down to a size 12, losing 34 pounds. Now she's lost another 14 pounds or more and and kept the weight off for well over three years. Jo, 42, from Nottingham, says: “I'm eating like I did when I was a teenager. I'm amazed how I feel so alive now. Full of energy, full of fun. I look in the mirror and can't believe the sexy person I see is me! My Slimpod has helped me beat that sweet tooth." Jo's now 9 stone and a size 10!
Sarah Elliston knew she ought to exercise because her clothes were getting tight. But sometimes that’s easier said than done! “Any excuse would do to take the car rather than walk,” says Sarah, 47, from Haywards Heath. “I was a typical couch potato. I joined a gym but was always looking for reasons not to go so when I broke my ankle two years ago it was the perfect excuse for doing nothing.
“It's hard to believe the transformation since I discovered Slimpods. To be honest I was sceptical that I could lose weight by listening to a download for 10 minutes a day. I was a large 14 to 16, having been on a diet pretty much for the last 15 years. Now I've gone down to a size 12 – a 10 in some clothes - I walk to and from the station every day, I've done a 45-mile charity bike ride and exercise has become an integral part of my life.”
WHEN Cathy Fernie walks down a supermarket aisle towards chocolate she hears a voice in her head telling her: “Just say No to chocolate.” That’s the power of the Slimpods Cathy is taking control and losing weight with our Chocoholic Cure – “I’ve had amazing success,” she says. "So far I've lost almost three stone with my Slimpod.
“Every time I’ve lost weight in the past chocolate has been my downfall and I’ve put the pounds back on again. The Slimpod got me off chocolate almost instantly, I couldn’t believe it,” says Cathy, 48, from Burton-on-Trent, Staffs. "I can choose what goes in my mouth now – I can eat better and feel good thanks to my Slimpod."
“I have to be honest, I was a little bit sceptical at first when I started using my Slimpod," says Smirti, from Northwod, Middlesex. "How could something that seemed so simple and easy help anyone to lose weight? I listened to my Slimpod before I went to bed but after the first couple of days I didn’t really think it was working, as I didn’t notice any real differences in myself.
“Then I went to the supermarket to do my weekly shop. I always buy myself a box of cream cakes as a reward every Monday, but this time as I walked down the aisle to the bakery counter something seemed to be holding me back. Towards the end of the second week I noticed that I felt much more energetic and alive. Instead of going to the gym once a week, I suddenly felt the urge to step it up to twice and three times a week.Now I've become a gym bunny!"
Suzy Purcell, 32, a mother of two from Aldershot, had struggled with her weight for 10 years but diets, tablets, special food and spinning classes never produced lasting results. The problem was that Suzy was a self-confessed greedy eater and at 4ft 11in even being a stone overweight was a lot extra to carry. Then Suzy discovered Slimpods.
“I'm now seeing such a huge difference in my eating,” says Suzy. “For the first time since I was a little girl I am in total control of food and so far I have lost about 1 stone 1 lb, taking me to my lowest ever adult weight of 8st 11lbs. Look at that picture of me in the blue dress - today I'm a comfortable size 10 and can even get into a few size 8 outfits."
Katie Dial is upfront about her weight loss problem: "I was a binger, a grazer and a chocoholic all rolled into one so I really needed the special help my Slimpod gave me. I set three realistic goals: to be confident enough to get into a swimming costume, to get fit and healthy and lose my baby weight once and for all and to fit back into The Dress.
“I achieved all three goals and wore The Dress to a Christmas party. More recently I listened to another Slimpod. Four months earlier I’d had my second child – and six months later I would be walking down the aisle. It was a longer and slower journey but again, it worked. Over five months I lost 2 stone 1lb and now I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been. I've even worn skin-tight leggings to show off the great new legs I've got!”
Air stewardess Carly Gyde says: “Constantly switching from day flights to night flights plays havoc with my internal clock and I used to find myself hungry for snacks at 4am. I knew I had to do something drastic when I walked down the plane aisle and found my bottom was banging on the seats – or worse, into the customers.
“Now, with the help of my Slimpod which I listen to every day, I can whizz up and down the aisle,” says Carly, 32, from Eastbourne. “In fact, I can even shimmy past the trolley with ease! “I call the Slimpod my no-diet diet because it’s a lifestyle change that doesn’t make me feel as if I’m depriving myself from any of life’s little pleasures. It’s a very convenient and modern way of losing weight for me but it goes much deeper than dieting ever could.”
