5 months later and 3 stone, 8 pounds lighter, I wouldn't of believed I've done it as well. I've come a long way, myself 5 months ago and myself now are the same person but now they have many differences.
I had so many worries and I stressed when starting this journey that I'd have to eat rabbit food to lose the weight but it wasn't like that at all, thanks to Pinterest I found so many healthy meal recipes, that are literally so good you forget they're healthy. They're too good to not be bad. There were some recipes I'd found we didn't like but I've got at least a handful of recipes that we have again and again because they are delicious. Just take a look at some of the things we've been eating.
I've never been full of confidence and even at my lightest I had issues with my look/body image, but now I feel my confidence growing. I'm actually able to take selfies and progress pictures now which I wouldn't of been able to do 5 months ago when I would shy away from the camera and hid behind someone.
This journey I'm on I've realised that in the last couple of weeks I'm not on it by myself. I'm not on this journey alone, I'm doing it with all the people I love, I have the support of my man, Nick who I'm contiguously forgetting is by my side on this journey. It's hard to remember you're not alone especially if you haven't lost any weight one week or you've binged on crap for a couple of days, I get down and I feel more alone than ever but I have to keep telling myself I'm not by myself and I have an amazing support system around me.
So far I have lost 3 stone 8 pounds and I am still 4 stone from my goal. It's going to take time and it's going to be really hard, I will sweat, I will cry, I will ache from exercise I'll think is designed to just hurt me but I will do this because not only do I believe in myself, when I have those days I feel like Jabba the Hutt, I have people around me that believe in me. I am not alone, I'm not on this by myself.
I have the support, encouragement and love along with my own motivation to do this, that is all I need to know I can do this.
Here is my first weight-loss journey post check it out here. I will be writing another update in December, it will be Christmas themed and hopefully I'll stay on track and won't be filled with Mince Pies.
