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.
