Exciting times, today I recorded my first SlimVlog for YouTube and I’m planning a series of these videos to share more of my slimming journey and learnings along the way. I named it a SlimVlog as it is a video blog (vlog) and it’s for Love Yourself Slim! I do hope you enjoy watching it, this one is called “I quit Slimming World after 6 years” and shares the what and the why!
Having been a blogger for 9 years (on my other blog, JuggleMum) I’ve learned along the way that whilst people love to read and comment on your blog posts – there is a whole separate audience on YouTube who don’t go near blogs usually so you reach ‘extra’ people with video. I’d love for the people who find me on YouTube to come and visit Love Yourself Slim and enjoy the other posts and inspiration on this site. I know that when I felt alone with my weight struggles, I’d have loved to have found a blog like this one to read and find comfort.
I’m planning to record a SlimVlog each week and my next one is around motivation – the motivation to lose weight. I’m conducting a poll on my Facebook page to ask which you prefer when it comes to slimming motivation… A kick up the arse or loving kindness? This may sound like an odd question, but it’s just that I’ve noticed a lot of people saying ‘I need a kick up the arse’ as a turn of phrase and I was interested in whether they genuinely would prefer a bootcamp style – tough love approach to motivation or the gentle encouragement style that I have adopted on my Instagram feed. Do stop by and let me know your views, plus LIKE the page too to stay in touch!
