Feeling confident is not just about how you look on the outside but how you feel on the inside too. To be honest this past week has been a tough one for me. Not in a food sense as I have been super good but emotionally its been a bit of a roller coaster.
Mother Nature has been in situ for almost 6 weeks now and to be honest I’m getting a little tired of her company. My hormones are shot and as much as I am clinging onto the fact that I am actually sticking to an eating plan for once, this week has been full of ups and downs.
I broke my heart this week, I’m talking crying from getting up to going to bed. The slightest thing set me off but you know what, the amount of people who rallied around, who dropped in my dm’s on instagram. Even just to say chin up and thinking of you, it made me realise just how lucky I am to have the friends I do.
Food wise this week has been a good one. I have been religiously taking my 3 sachets of Slimbiome each day which I am sure is helping me as you take them 30 minutes before meals. This has stopped me snacking too as I feel I shouldn’t eat unless part of my routine now!
After creating a shopping list (which I never do) and sticking to it at the shops (which I never do) I even managed to create recipes from the Pinch of Nom cookbook instead of ordering take away (which I ALWAYS do!)
I have lost 2lb this week which to be honest is a bonus as I feel better in myself anyway so the numbers are not an issue for me. How I feel and look to myself in the mirror is more important – the numbers are just a bonus as its an indication that I am going about it the right way. Slow and steady wins the race and if I keep going at this rate I should be at target by summer!
A little tracker for myself:
Measurements 43, 34, 46

I am working with Holland & Barrett on a paid trial of Slimbiome, all views and opinions are my own and genuine.
