MUMenTUM - Monday Check in

I have been a bit slack lately with MUMenTUM and I want to apologise to all the lovely ladies who have contributed every week, rain or shine. I am back with a renewed vigour and want to truly make the most of this group and the support it brings.

I have just popped on the scales and they read roughly the same as they always do, which isn't a bad thing it just means that I am never really sure of what is going on. I might have a 'fat' day but it never really reflects on the scales and although I don't want to yo yo with my weight it's a strange indicator for me. No indicator in fact. As I am the same weight roughly as I was before Beastie I always tell myself that it's great I achieved that goal. What I always forget was that in actual fact I wasn't overly happy with my weight before and even my tummy. I now look back and wonder what on earth I was worrying about! hindsight is a wonderful thing. I realise it's how you feel at the time, it's all very well looking back and wishing for what we used to have only to remember at that point we probably weren't happy either. It's all about now and what's important now. What is important to me and my self worth.

The main focus for me now is to concentrate more on what I eat. I haven't been paying much attention to this lately at all, with being fairly busy, healthy eating has been on the back burner. As a result I am feeling lethargic and sluggish.

Like many people, every now and then I need to sit and take stock. I feel a new approach is needed as the old ones simply are not sustainable for me. I have been reading about the revolution that is Thinking Slimmer and have heard such rave reviews that I feel it is a must for me to try. So soon I will be joining in with all the hype...I shall be going to bed with Trevor like thousands of others.

Take a look at what everyone else is achieving through the blog hop:


  1. We are so similar- it's like I could have written this post! We have a similar body frame I think! X

    Apart from the fact you are way slimmer! x

  3. Good luck with the healthy eating. It makes such a difference to how we feel but so often it does get sidelined.
    ps. Trevor is absolute genius in Slimpod form!! xxx

  4. I totally agree with you about stating from where you are now. It's amazing how what you eat can really affect how you feel, isn't it. Good luck.

    Lethargic & sluggish is not a good feeling so hopefully with the help of the wonderful Trevor you will be back to feeling full of beans in no time!

  6. This might explain why i feel good today,usually i have no energy (when i eat lots of cakes)but as i'm trying to cut down i felt loads better today, :)

  7. I am following Slimming World and in short all it is, apart from the great support you get each week at class, is healthy eating...pure and simple! And you know what it really works. There are no magic potions or pills to pop just plain old fashioned back to basics healthy home-made meals.

    And once you get into eating healthy again, it's surprising how much your energy levels go up.

    Look forward to hearing how you get on with the slimpods, they sound great!

    Have a fantastic week :) x

  8. After a weekend of eating rubbish I felt sluggish and tired. Once you start your healthy eating you will have a new lease of life. I feel loads better today.

    Everyone is in to the slimpods, I may have to be next.

    Have a good week

  9. No I am not you silly old goat. ;) xx

  10. Good luck! Also mumentum-ing it. I do think in life positive thinking really does bring positive in (law of attraction) i never thought about applying it to my weight loss until now. Everyone is raving about slimpods... im really curious!!
    Hope you have a good week!
    Now a follower :o)

  11. Thank you for your lovely comment!

    I have put on 2lbs this week so I'm feeling a bit disheartened, but my little girl has taken to waking up at 5.30am and I find I really need a bit of extra fuel to get through the day (extra fuel = chips!).

  12. I'm very much looking forward to trying Thinking Slimmer too xx

  13. Katie you ARE very slim. Your dress at CM showed that off a treat x
