New Shoes!



These are my new trainers. Apparently they will tone up my legs muscles. They certainly make me taller! I haven't used them for running yet - cos I don't really "do" running - never feel comfortable. I guess I will begin by walking briskly when out with Freida!
Last night at Slimming World I received my Club 10 award - meaning I have lost 10% of my initial body weight - and to date I am continuing to lose weight.....there are changes I have made to my diet and I hope to lose a further few pounds......so would the odd little trot around help matters?
Watch this space!

  1. You'll certainly tone up, but isn't muscle heavier that fat???
    Well done!

  2. I just got new ones, too, and I certainly don't run. I got them because they fit my orthotic insoles. LOL
    I'm losing weight v-e-r-y slowly, which they say is the best way, but it sure doesn't feel like it to me.
    Congratulations on your success!

  3. Can't wait to hear how the shoes work. And if you like them.
    Here in America they had a big report that said they don't really work any better than regular shoes so........ I am very interested to see how you like them and if they really help your leg muscles !

  4. I have lost 30 lbs in the last 6 months just by doing my physical therapy exercises, which includes 20 minutes walking 2 or 3 times a week. I've also been eating a lot of fruit. I didn't do all this to lose weight but to alleviate pain from my fibromyalgia and not take any pain pills which were giving me other more serious problems. But it was a nice extra benefit. I still have the pain but it is more manageable now.

  14. There's nothing like a complete stranger popping up on your blog and giving advice... but you did end your post with a question.

    Sandie (first commenter) brings up an excellent point. The scale is not your friend. You can lose fat, gain muscle, and end up the exact same weight but much fitter, and different measurements! (Smaller waist, etc.)

    Without getting preachy, I'm just going to say two things. Eat paleo. Eat primal.

    It's the easiest and most delicious way of living I've ever experienced, and I've lost 25 pounds in 2 months. Wearing my skinny jeans again.

    If you're interested, check out the blogs written by Sarah Fragoso (she has wonderful recipes!), Robb Wolf (he's got all the nutritional details), and Mark Sisson (good exercise tips).

    You don't need special shoes, you'll save hundreds of dollars a month on groceries while eating as much as you like, whenever you are hungry, and at whatever time of day you feel like eating.

    Cheers!
