TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY - MY 3.5 STONE WEIGHT LOSS

The photo on the left was the first ever photo I took when I decided to turn my life around and lose weight, I joined Slimming World that night (SW is an incredible way of life, it's not a diet it's a lifestyle change and still enables you to eat and drink what you want just within moderation. It's so easy follow and I couldn't recommend it enough.) I've had these pictures in a folder on my laptop for 2 and a half years and I never dared to look at them, let alone post them online, being ashamed and embarrassed I’d let myself get like that. But today I am ready, although I am incredibly nervous! Sometimes I find it really hard to believe I was ever that person and others I still feel like I haven't changed at all and that's really difficult, but when I see a side by side comparison with a photo taken last night I know that I've come a really long way since that first photo and to be honest it's quite emotional. There's 3 and a half stones difference in these photos and God knows how many inches, I've gone from a size 16/18 to a 10 and 36F/G to 32E. I really would like to shift another stone and I'm trying hard to do so, but hey if it doesn't go anywhere then that's not so bad, I'm pretty content with what i have and know I've worked hard to achieve it. Losing weight has changed my life in so many ways, I'm much more happier, positive, confident and most importantly, I'm fitter and healthier. It's never too late to make a change, it may take you months or it may take you years but you'll get there, I am a prime example of that!

  1. Well done! You look amazing :). I love Slimming World, I have lost nearly 3 stone, the last stone is taking it's time but at least we have a better outlook on a healthy lifestyle now :).

  6. You look amazing!! I'm following SW too and have (had!) lost 3stone (although put a bit on over the winter but am heading back to the group tomorrow to see the damage...eek!) I think it's great, I've learned to cook from scratch and the Iceland SW ready meals help so much for those tricky lunchtimes! You've done so well and should be very proud of yourself! Would love to see more of your recipe posts! :)

  9. Well done you! I know the feeling, I dropped two stone a couple of years ago and it's crazy when you look back and make the comparison, quite scary really. You look incredible and I'm glad you pointed out it's all about a lifestyle change and not some fad diet! xx

  28. Well done, 3.5 stone is an amazing achievement. Slimming world is amazing but it does take a lot of work and organisation, so you've done so well. I started it six weeks ago and hoping to reach my first stone soon. Good luck reaching your goal 😀
