‘Svelte in Style – How to look and feel great while losing weight
an eBook by Jill Chivers & Imogen Lamport. Sweet Price – US$27.00
This eBook is one I came across through Facebook. I have met Jill Chivers personally and Imogen Lamport has her own Image Consultant Training business in Melbourne.
‘Svelte in Style’ packs a lot in one eBook. It is almost a complete system for the do-it-yourselfer about to start or re-start your weight-loss journey. Jill writes the first section on ‘feeling good’ and Imogen writes the second section on ‘looking good’. There are two bonus sections. Annette Sym writes on ‘eating healthily’ and Amanda Cox writes on ‘exercising healthily’.
You can use this either as a full program or as an additional boost to any other slimming program. The eBook combines the theory with lots of practical exercises to pick and choose from. Here are what I consider to be the gems in this book.
On page 15, Jill covers one of most women’s biggest mistakes and that is – ‘a life suspended’ while you focus totally and often obsessively on weight loss. As part of the section on ‘self-care’, Jill includes tips to inspire you to explore and expand your mind, your horizons and your skills so that your awareness is on expansion rather than deprivation.
Imogen gives you lots to read on ‘looking good’. I suggest you read the story on page 77 to help you change your mindset from ‘if it fits, it will do’ to saying ‘no’ to anything less than your best colours and styles even if they fit. This is a game-changing way of dressing. On page 90, Imogen looks at ‘a life suspended’ from a dressing viewpoint and reveals a secret tip for enjoying wearing clothes that fit at all your weight-loss stages. Go back to page 37 to read Imogen’s story about a sneaky tip on men’s attitude that you can use when trying on new clothes during your weight-loss journey.
Losing weight isn’t just about a goal to conquer and that’s it. It is about maintaining a healthy, steady weight for the rest of your life. So read page 122 for Annette’s healthy eating maintenance tips. Also read pp 139 & 140 for Amanda’s practical tips for including purposeful activity in your daily life.
This eBook is a smorgasbord of great inspiration, tips, exercises and recommended resources.
My Tip – To avoid overwhelm, do not try to do it all. Start with what resonates and what you can easily do. Then gradually add more as your confidence and self-esteem improves.
