There are just 14 weekends until Christmas… YIKES ! Yes, summer 2014 is over and the nights are already drawing in.
If you were lucky enough to have a break this summer it’s probably just a happy memory and your tan has no doubt faded too.
You may be thinking about weight-loss and Slim & Save is the ideal place to start, so read on.
Maybe you want to lose weight specifically for Christmas, you might want to lose a few pounds gained over the summer, or you might already be on your weight-loss journey and just need some encouragement.
This feature is about how to make positive changes to your lifestyle that will hopefully last a lifetime.
There’s no doubt that this year’s summer was like summers used to be: long, hot sunny days with only an occasional sprinkling of rain. If you travelled abroad (lucky you), you probably had wall-to-wall sunshine, maybe sea and sand too. Now the kids are back at school and the countdown to Christmas has started (yes, the first mince pies are in the shops already). You probably want to get back on track with your weight-loss so don’t put it off and stay in summer mode for too long.
Have a think about what you could do to help yourself with your Slim & Save journey. Check out the saying “if you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got”: meaning that if you never change anything then nothing will ever change. However, we can help you evaluate how to make some positive lifestyle adjustments.
Once you have put your suitcases away and packed your summer clothes in the closet don’t let the thought of winter get you down.
Make Mondays Fundays. Every Monday focus on the good things that have happened to you in the past seven days. Having a positive outlook on life is positively good for you. There is no reason why your glass can’t be permanently half full.
Mandy Blake chose Slim & Save when she decided to make some positive changes before she turned 50. After just 25 weeks on the plan Mandy had lost over five stones and dropped five dress sizes. Slim & Save gave Mandy the freedom to make some significant changes in her life because she didn’t have to worry about cooking or calorie counting on our Total Food Replacement Plan. Her weight-loss gave her the confidence to change things in her life. Read more about Mandy here.
On a weight-loss journey you need two things: focus and motivation. Every person on this planet has only 24 hours in a day. Considering around eight of those are lost to sleep, that leaves only 16 hours to focus on, and work for, what you want to achieve. By learning to manage your time properly you will be able to focus more and become more efficient.
At Slim & Save we are experts at weight-loss. (In fact our clients lose an amazing combined weight of over 600 stones per month). Our experts have put together some ideas to make lifestyle changes; the results of which will save you some time and give you the edge.
Stay focused: When you ‘pop’ to the shops, do you find that two hours later you have spent £50 - when you only popped out to buy a newspaper?
In future, write a list, give yourself a time limit and stick to it. Focus and discipline are positive attributes for everyone.
Out with the old: Are you longing to de-clutter your home? Clinging to your old possessions means that it will take you much longer to find what you need under a sea of clutter. There’s nothing wrong with being sentimental but remember to be an ‘Achiever’ you have to move forwards not backwards. De-clutter and see things more clearly.
Start to change the way you see yourself by using your own special “creative visualisation” technique.
Find a favourite photograph of yourself (maybe a summer holiday snap, or your wedding or school photo). Get some reprints of the photo and place them around the house, in your wallet, on your desk at work etc. Each time you look at the photo tell yourself one positive thing e.g. “I have some really good friends, I am very proud of my children, I am a very good driver”. This positivity will soon become the norm and pay you dividends on your weight-loss journey with Slim & Save.
Whichever Slim & Save Plan you choose, remember we are now one of the leading diet meal replacement companies in the UK with outstanding customer satisfaction.
