I've not done a Slimming World/Weight-loss post in a while so today
I am giving you a little update on how I am doing and also
share with you one of my biggest fears.
Regular readers will know that I decided to change my life back in January
by going to Slimming World.
I have never been to any other slimming club before so it was all very new to me.
Last week I got this award!
My total Weight- loss is 5 stone 2 lb's to date.
All my family and friends are extremely proud of me
that I have managed to loose this much within under a year!
I don't have an updated photo of me at the moment but the below photo's were all taken
back in September so I am 2 stone and 6lb lighter now than in these photo's.
Here are some fab things I've found with loosing weight:
I have more energy
I can now go for long walks and last longer doing exercises
on the wii without getting out of breath.
I love fruit
I use to hate fruit but love my vegetables I now eat more fruit
my favourites being pears, strawberries, banana's and mango.
I've gone down 5 dress sizes
I've gone down from a size 24 to a size 12/14
I still have moments when out shopping and I end up looking at the bigger sizes.
I drink more water
Yes this shouldn't be a big deal but I use to be really
bad at drinking water but now I try and drink at least a litre a day.
I sometimes don't recognise myself
from time to time when I see my reflection I can't
get over how much weight I have lost and how different I look.
Now there is a little something that recently I have noticed
my weight-loss is starting to slow down.
I think my body has got the stage where it's got use to it!
I'm not too far away from target now and hope to get their by April .
But I now have a fear I am scared of gaining weight!
I don't want to go back to the girl I was back when I was a size 24.
I was unhappy and it was bad for my health.
It's got to the point where I have to weigh myself every day and not just once
a day either! If I can't I start feeling a little panicky which isn't good for me at all.
I am known at my slimming club as the girl who always has a steady
loss week in week out with only a few gains or maintains here or there.
When I do gain even if it's just 1/2lb or maintain I feel really
down and low.
I also have the fear of when I get to target that I will struggle
to keep within the target range.
I also worry that once I do hit target I feel that I am invincible
and end up scoffing myself silly and then be back at square one.
