Take these simple steps and start thinking like a slimmer person

6th January 2020

Happy New Year and a very warm welcome to my new year Boot Camp!  Yes, it’s time to shake off the cobwebs and get 2020 off to a great start!  And here’s the thing:  This Boot Camp is different.  It’s like nothing you’ve done before because we don’t just focus on food and exercise.   

Living a healthy life and achieving sustainable weight loss are more of a mental challenge than just a physical one.  So we focus on getting your mind in a place to enable lasting change. 

This Boot Camp will be full of valuable tips to empower you to think like a slimmer person, because this is the life-changing bit!  No more falling off the wagon – how good will that feel?!

Here’s the first video – enjoy!

Key points   

** The three pillars of this programme are listening, watching and noting the all important wins .  Daily repetition is the key to success.

** The extra very important task is to work on your goal.  What do you REALLY want to achieve in 2020?  Think deeply about this and make it meaningful.

** Create your own goal map with my friend Brian Mayne’s free goalmapping system

** Avoid using the scales as your measure of success.  Take yourself out to the future – to next Christmas – how do you want to feel?  What size clothes would you like to be in?

** Think about your health, especially if you have diabetes or other conditions.  What would you like to achieve?

** Above all – think LONG TERM!  This is crucial because we’re all about long term success here, and a major shift in the way you think about yourself.  This is what brings contentment and sustainable weight loss.

Thank you for the video. I found it really helpful. I was feeling anxious about how much I had eaten over Christmas & how I was going to get out of the habit. So I felt reassured. Also I haven’t been doing my Slimpod very well, as I missed a video & haven’t taken a photo of my body or written down small wins. I was beating myself up but have just decided to be kinder to myself & just do those things today & get on track. Thank you.

I like the long term approach which is more realistic and the focus on health as well as appearance.

Hi, I’ve deleted my social media as a New Years gift to myself so sadly I will
No longer see the Slimpod club! I’ve reset my thinking a couple of days ago and back listening daily To slimpod and exercise pod. In gave I’m
Just about to do a pump class at the gym. Looking Forward to the boot camp challenge; hopefully not being on Facebook won’t matter!!

It wont matter too much, but you do miss out on the support if you’re not in Slimpod Club. I did a Facebook Live video last night which helped a lot of people. You could just use FB for Slimpod Club and not bother about anything else. But up to you!

A bit of a tear in my eye watching this Sandra!
It’s so me, the self sabotage and expectation of failure. But this mindful approach is the way for me.
This is my year.
I am ready!

Just a quick question; will my brain try to outsmart the Slimpods as this is not the first time it’s heard them? #slimpodworks

Your subconscious will only work against you if there’s something deep down inside that it doesn’t want to change. If it doesn’t want you to lose weight because there’s a fear of something then it might cause trouble. But it won’t ‘outsmart’ the Slimpods otherwise. it’s like someone who’s had gastric surgery but hasn’t sorted out the brain! Hope that helps.

Thanks, I have had a really difficult time personally since the end of October and totally eaten myself into depression. I want to pick up where I left off. I was really enjoying being in control of my eating – but this situation has derailed me. I am going to be part of the boot camp and do some goal setting for this year.

Well done you for picking yourself up!

Been doing slimpod for a year now and apart from 11 days listen every night but got out of the habit of writing down my wins but since 1-1-20 I’m back doing them. No scales for me I just go by how my clothes fit 🙏

Really need to do this! Need to get fit and healthy for myself and my family – as a mother of 2 year old twins I struggle to find time and it’s so easy to pick at snacks… need to stop making excuses.

Your videos are very inspiring and though I’m a die hard nibbler I am at last getting to grips with my eating last night a tin of chocolates was put in front of me which I refused without the usual pain how good I feel today

Hi it’s Alison here. Can you just quickly explain to me what you would count as a win. Not been this a week yet. I’ve been reading all your email. They all really good.

I am having trouble writing down 3 successes a day and setting a long term goal and interim goals. I have never enjoyed or been successful in keeping a journal of any kind. I agree with you that this is most definitely due to fear of failure. So I have made a goal to take a look at Brian Mayne’s goalmapping Wednesday during the day when I am not working. I have serious mobility issues and have since November. I have inflammatory arthritis and fibromyalgia, hypothyroidism, Type 2 diabetes (no meds) controlled by healthy eating so far. I am a Size 22. I am waiting for a GP appointment this Friday because my arthritis in my knees has now got the added problem that my leg is swelling at any amount of sitting, standing or walking. My long term goal is to be able to walk, drive, play with my grandchildren, live a mobile life basically, a healthy one. So the goalmappingis importantfor me this week. Now to fit that in to what is a very stressful time for me for lots of reasons not even mentioned in this very long winded comment.
