COLLEEN SMITH had a common problem. “I used to be a comfort eater and I would eat pudding BEFORE dinner!” she says. “I also loved bread and cheese. At that point I was a size 22, and did little or no exercise.
“I had the diet mentality and it wouldn’t shift. I really had struggled with my weight for most of my life and could see no end to the yo-yo dieting.” Then Colleen, from Lutterworth, Leicestershire, discovered the solution.
“I began to lose weight with the Slimpod and it was just so easy. I noticed I didn’t think about food as much as I used to which was amazing.
“I lost 21lbs and because of my diet history I believed my weight wasn’t going any lower. However something different was happening. And it’s really the BEST thing.
“I found myself questioning that belief and yes, my Slimpod was helping me to unpick the baggage! I’ve now dropped two dress sizes but I have freedom!
“The things that have changed dramatically thanks to the Slimpod are:
“I’ve not consciously followed an eating plan (hooray!).
“I eat normally and eat a cream cake if I want to.
“I’m choosing more veggies – because I want to.
“My taste buds have changed – I didn’t have a big sweet tooth but now everything’s changed, I just don’t like the taste any more.
“Rather than a diet telling me I can’t have something – I’ve already decided I don’t want it.
“I find myself reasoning with myself – I used to eat a lot of petrol station food! Now I do something different for my comfort.
“I just can’t eat like I used to any more, but I’m not denying myself – it’s FREEDOM, which is simply wonderful!”
