I have found both products nothing short of amazing in the past month, as they both continued to motivate my weight loss and promote my self-esteem. If you have been on any weight loss program, as I have been previously so many times, you know that motivation starts to wane around week two, as deprivation of nutrition kicks in.
These two act totally different to a weight loss program as the accent with both is on movement and choices, rather than depriving yourself of food.
My Polar Loop 2 keeps me in check daily. I find myself consciously moving more as I am eager to clock in the 12,000 steps I need to be doing each day. I have felt an incredible sense of pride last night when I checked my activity tracker charts and saw that in the past two weeks I have not only achieved but exceeded the recommended daily exercise dose.
The Slimpod works perfectly alongside the Polar Loop. The 10 minutes of gentle encouraging and empowering listening at the end of each day set me mentally for the following day. I have been really surprised to find out how important it is to me to be told every night, in a gentle and reassuring voice, that I can choose better, that every step I take towards my goal is progress, that the goal is withing reach and achievable. I have also seen that not listening to the pods for an evening or more sets me back and draws me to old habits of inactivity and binge eating, so I now make it a point to take those 10 minutes for myself each night, before going to bed.
This has led me to question so many things in my life and realise that encouragement is needed at any age and makes such a difference. I am very interested now in finding similar programs or CDs which encourage self-esteem and well-being as I have come to see the value of them.
Next month I will have a Slimpod to give away to a lucky reader so if reading my post has found you wanting to change too, do drop by around the 23rd of March to enter the giveaway.
Oh, and I know the point of any such programs is results but I have refused to weigh myself since I started. I know that I have lost weight as both my sisters in law remarked on it when we were in Greece last week so I think I am on the right path with this :-).
