As many of you back last month liked and read my post about my journey through losing weight, I thought I would give you a little update on how I am getting on. Last time i had lost 8 pounds, which was at the end of September. Since then, I have had bad weeks, some of which i know should have been good, because i kept within my points limit and went to the gym a hell of a lot.
Weight Watchers does not take into consideration muscle gain, but that’s okay, i don’t just go by my weight, I go by how my clothes fit me, so if I do have a bad week, and my clothes feel the same, or a bit looser then it’s down to exercise.
But going back on to topic, I have finally lost a STONE! I not only see the effects of that stone, but i also feel so much better about myself and my confidence. Since starting WW, i have a lot of clothes that I really did not want to throw away because I loved wearing them when i was that size, and now I can wear most of them again because they feel and look better on me than they did when i was heavier. There are a few dresses that are the next size down again that i aim to get into, but I know eventually I will be able to wear them again and feel fabulous in them!
I have another two stone to shift now before reaching my goal, but at the moment I’m taking it day by day. I have a dress I plan to wear out over Christmas which nearly fits me now, and so I plan to keep at it over Christmas, not deterring from the plan as i want to keep on track. I need to loose a few more pounds, but i have 6 weeks to do that, and hopefully I will own that dress when i go out with my friends before Christmas.
I never thought I would ever feel good about myself again, seeing as it;s so hard for me to loose weight. Although it has taken me 3 and a bit months to get this stone off, I am a patient person and weight loss affects people in different ways – some can get it off easier, some not so lucky, but with motivation and determination, I will, fingers crossed, be able to slip into a size 10 dress or a bikini by next summer and feel amazing about my journey.
Until next time!
