My Weightloss So Far, In Pictures.

Last night I said to Aaron that I don't feel like I've lost weight and when I look in the mirror I can't really see that I've lost any either, even though the scales told me I've got just 2lb to go til I've lost 2 stone! He said to look back through my pictures and I found one where I was wearing nearly the same as I was when I posted a picture of my outfit on Instagram the other day. I had to share it cause I can really see the weightloss and it's given me that boost that I needed to keep me going :)

sorry for the crap quality, blame the phone ;)
As you probably know by now, I started Slimming World in January this year. My reason for wanting to losing weight is to feel healthy again, I was the biggest I'd ever been and I just lost all of my confidence too which I feel is what started my anxiety.
We have diabetes in both sides of dads family and I knew I was heading straight for it the way I was going. I was fed up of being out of breath just from running up the stairs and I also started getting problems with my back, knee and my feet which the doctor said isn't helped by being over weight, obviously. I stopped feeling happy with the way I looked in anything, I stopped enjoying clothes and started not really bothering to make any effort. After Christmas Aaron and I agreed we needed to stop eating so much junk and start eating better and get ourselves into shape. Since eating better I rarely feel ill anymore, I enjoy walking (never thought I'd say that!!), I enjoy eating healthy meals, I feel happier in myself and my confidence has grown a lot - even my mum noticed last time we went shopping :) I still feel anxious in the car sometimes, especially on a dual carriage way but apart from that I haven't really had any problems. I've been going out to shops alone and will speak on the phone a bit more now too.
I always thought losing weight was going to be really hard work but it's literally been a case of eating healthily, cutting down on all the bad stuff and getting off my arse a bit more. Although I'm wearing size 16 jeans and size 18 tops and only want to get down to a size 14 on the bottom and 16 on top, most of my weight is around my middle so I have a way to go as yet til I'm happy but I'm getting there and that's the main thing :)

  1. Wow, congrats hun! I am desperately wanting to lose weight and managed to lose a stone last year, but I've started piling it back on again :( Slimming World and Weight Watchers both seem too complex for me, especially as I cook for both me and my (skinny) other half - and we're both quite picky about what we like! x
