Slender-TONED

Back in September 2014 I purchased a SlenderTone Abs belt which you can read about here and this is my update post as I have had a number of readers contact me about my progress.

I should say that I have been trying to eat better by reducing my sugar intake as I did develop Gestational Diabetes during my pregnancy which came as a massive shock BUT I was able to control my diet and not take any medication thankfully. It has been a wake up call so I am much more conscious of what I eat now but I am a strong believer in saying everything in moderation!

9 months ago I gave birth to a much wanted baby boy. It was by far the most eye watering difficult thing I have ever done requiring all of my strength. 37 hours and lots of screaming later ta-dah! I became a mum and everything was brilliant with the World again.

This time last year I was 6 months pregnant and watched others drinking and being merry enjoying Christmas treats while I looked on with a grumpy cat face. This year it will be much different and all will be fine with the World again. The Abs belt has really helped me get back some body confidence. As you can see I did have some left over flab which I could have lived with of course but as one of my personal goals for this year I wanted to achieve a flatter  tummy. I do have 3 teeny tiger stretch stripes for my baby carriage efforts but I will wear these with pride.

I was sceptical at first as I wasn’t sure this would work for me but I am very pleased with the results to date and wish I had purchased it sooner. I don’t belong to any gym but I’m fine wearing it every other day  for 20 minutes whilst going about my business and combining it with eating a varied diet and drinking protein juices. I have started to notice some definition but whether I can maintain this remains to be seen!

Would love to hear from you if you too are on a Slender toning quest!

Thanks for reading
