Get Summer Body Ready Week Two

Sorry for the late post but it's been a busy week. My Mom and her partner hired a narrowboat and asked us to join her for for a few days and it was my sisters 40th birthday.

First of all a weight update, its not really been a great week for dieting, but I have still managed to lose another 3lbs taking my total loss so far to 8lbs.

I have also been on the hunt for a bikini, what a nightmare! It is almost impossible to find decent swimwear at a reasonable price for bigger busted women. I have looked on the High Street and have found nothing. If your listening Next, M&S, Debenhams you need to stock a better range of sizes and produce more styles for curvy women. I have had to order online, which is ok, but it would be nice to try them on as I'm not sure which styles will suit my figure. Yeah, it might look amazing on the swimwear model but on a 46 year old with saggy bits...I'm not so sure!


Here's what I've ordered so far from Figleaves

Who am I kidding?

Okay, I would really love to look like Kate Upton but in reality I have got to work with what I have. So here's my countdown to getting my body Summer ready week one....

This week was my first week Booshing and I have lost 5lbs, still on target for a stone. See my other posts for details Fast Weight Loss Diet Plans & Shakes, VLCD Meal Replacements Food – Boossh

Also on my list is to start exfoliating, I recently purchased a new epilator as my old one went kaput. This particular model has a body brush attachment which is really handy. I used it in the shower with my normal shower gel and then used a moisturiser afterwards. Braun Silk-├ępil 9 SkinSpa 9961 Wet and Dry Epilator Exfoliator - Boots

I have also ordered the St. Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion, I will post a review when I have given it a thorough test St.Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion 200ml - Boots

That's it for now, see you  next week!

Boosh Weight Loss Programme - Countdown to Wedding Anniversary One Week On

Okay, so I've been Booshing for a week now and have lost 5 lbs. I know that may not seem a lot to some but, for me, that's pretty impressive. Whenever I have joined slimming clubs before  I normally lose about 2lbs in my first week, so 5lbs is a bloody miracle!

I have liked all of the meals and shakes so far except the mushroom soup which tasted awful and smelt of chemicals so I will be returning them. However, the Strawberry Jam Hot Cereal is delicious and tastes just like Oatso Simple so will replace the Mushroom soups with these. You can swap items you do not like on your first order which is great as who wants to be stuck with products they hate?

So, as I embark on week two I have an added incentive as I have booked a holiday!!! Whoo hoo!!! See you next week.......
