Do you know it is just 11 weeks until Christmas! It’s certainly been a funny old year and maybe you’re thinking that it’s all a bit of a right-off weight-wise too. Well think again! There’s no better time to get started than right now! Give yourself the gift of a slimmer, healthier new you for Christmas – it really is the very best gift around, for you and your loved ones.
Imagine how you’d feel if you lost those extra few pounds. Or if it’s “more than a few pounds” wouldn’t it be great to be well on your way by Christmas.
Imagine how it’d be when your friends and family say how great you look!
Imagine getting into that special outfit!
And imagine how much better you’ll feel about yourself – fitter, healthier and more confident!
You can do it!
You can do it, you know. Our new Slimtone Back-to-Basics-Booster Plan has everything you need to shift those unwanted pounds. And now that most of our classes have re-opened, there’s no excuse. I’m with you every step of the way with answers to your questions, tips to make things easier and encouragement to help you get there.
Shape up for Christmas!
Here’s a few reminders to help you shape up for the festive season.
First of all, semi-starvation won’t help – it’ll just get you down. Get organised with your menu plan and sort out your shopping. Have a cooking session and make a selection of your favourite meals then freeze them. You’ll find it so convenient to have a meal ready whenever you need it.
Make up your Slimtone Soup too, (the recipe is on page 27 of the Lifestyle Plan) it’s ideal as a snack or as a calorie-free starter before a meal. Take it to work in a soup flask to have with your packed lunch and you’ll have a really satisfying meal.
Next think about your portion size. If you guesstimate your portions instead of weighing them then you are NOT following the plan. Just the odd piece of cheese or chocolate or nibbling at the children’s leftovers has calories and they all count. Remember the Slimtone motto – Little Pickers Wear Bigger Knickers! C’mon now, no messing, no guessing!
Exercise is important too, so fit in as much as you can. It doesn’t have to be anything too strenuous, walking is great exercise. Look at stairs in a new light, they are a BIG calorie-burner. Did you know that every time you walk up a flight of stairs you burn off around 11 calories per minute!
Above all, be realistic. Losing five pounds a month is an excellent weight loss – any more than that is a real bonus. And if you lose a pound a week, that’s almost a stone by Christmas! Wouldn’t that be fantastic! When you come to class for every pound you lose, you’ll get a sparkly bauble on your Slimtone Christmas Wreath! I’ve already been giving out lots of baubles, so make sure you get some too.
