Slimming World : An Update

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. 

UPDATE: 
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.
