Thinking Slimmer 12 Week Challenge – Week 8 Update

It’s week 8 of my Thinking Slimmer 12 week challenge. I have been listening to the chillpod, slimpod and fitpod every night before bed. I have found that I’m falling asleep now whilst listening and find myself waking in the night to discover I still have the headphones in my ears.

The three goals I have set for myself are

1) Feel fitter and be able to run around with my children with ease

2) Drink less tea and more water

3) Drop a dress size

This is what I have been up to over the past week

Wii Fit and EA Active

I still haven’t touched this apart from weighing myself. There is a lot going on with Ethan at the moment, preparing him for starting school, I’m not going to stress myself out about working out until this milestone has been completed.

Tea Drinking

I’m still on four cups of tea a day and we have started to discuss when we are going to start using fat-free milk. I think this will be introduced next week.


I have treated myself to a few small pieces of chocolate, nothing major as it makes me feel ill if I eat too much. It was twice, which is so much better than everyday.

Cereal Before Bed

I have kept away from my cereal before bed, I have only really missed it on one night.

Weight-loss vs Measurements

This week I have maintained my weight but my BMI has gone down. The wii Fit still tells me I’m overweight now, that’s two weeks of not being considered obese. I have also lost on my measurements this week.


Todays BMI – 29.53

Week 7 weight-loss – No loss

Chest Measurement – 1.5 cm loss

Waist Measurement – No loss

Bicep Measurement – No loss

Hip Measurement – 2.5 cm loss

Thigh Measurement – No loss
