24.8 – The Magic Number

There were 3 triggers. The first was seeing everyone's photos from Britmums Live last year, the second a once in a lifetime shot of me & Marco Pierre White and then the final straw, my only pair of fitting jeans ripping whilst on holiday. I was in the worst shape of my life. Something had to change.

4 days later I joined Slimming World. The rest, as they say, is history.

It's been fairly easy and has brought back my love for cooking that had been hidden by convenience foods. I haven't gone without either, we enjoyed Christmas, birthdays, our anniversary meal, holidays and I always end the evening with a bit of chocolate. These things are what tells me that this is sustainable, not a fad diet just a change we have made, for the better.

Last night, having lost a total of 2 stone 11 my weight is now within the healthy range for my height, my BMI is 24.8 and this makes me happy!

I'm wearing size 8 clothes, feeling far more confident, less tired when exercising and my golf swing is benefitting massively.

I'm not quite done yet, a few more pounds to go but I'm so nearly there and it feels great!

It's never too late to make a change.



    • Thank you x Going to try and not fall off the wagon this weekend

    • I haven’t tried insanity, is it good? I could really do with a bit of toning now

  1. Oh how amazing! Well done you and I am hoping to join you in the healthy range BMI within a year! I have a lot more weight to lose…..

  2. Aha, I was searching for the inside story on why the you that stood before me at #Danceathon looked SO amazing. I have shocking footage and photos of me from yesterday that is now going to see me embarking on this journey too. Thanks for the inspiration.
