My Weight Loss

Basically before christmas I took stock of myself, in both look and inner health.
I decided enough was enough and basically cut out treats. Then Christmas came and went, then I set to proper controlled dieting! To kick start [or that was the plan] I did the Slimfast for abouta month. Whilst it didn't do a lot for me it did get my head round the not picking..
Picking is my BIGGEST downfall. Crisps, cakes, biscuits, sweets!! So for me it was pretty easy, have to say. Once I started to not pick, the weight started to cpme off. I tended to take it half a stone at a time, rather than the HUGE amount.
So here we are 6 months down the line and 3stone 2lbs [dont forget the 2lbs lol] NEVER did I think I would get here and I have to say if I can do it ANY ONE can cos Im such a big fat pig at times!!
Hopefully those days are gone for good!!

Thats it really, no fad eating, no diet sheet. Think we all know what we can and cannot eat. I have eaten plenty of salads, veg, fruit and always had a weekly cheat!

Hope that helps you if you want to loose weight! I still would like to lose 2 stone, but realistically it may only end up 1 or 1 1/2

Lots Love

Treated myself today!

On the way to visit me Marj today I popped into a local gift/cafe to get her a 'cheap' bigger face watch, as she was struggling to see her own one. Whilst in there I wandered into the boutique [the kinda place that has exclusives and prices to match!!} and spotted the most fabbiest jacket I ever seen.....
Tried it on..BIG mistake cos i couldnt take my mind off it!!!! lol

Anyways went to see Marj and on the way back I could hear the jacket calling me..
So bit the bullet and bought it! Well I considered I been so miserable about me size for so long and not really bought anything that nice for this is my treat for losing 3stone 2lbs
Still more to loose cos on the BMI chart Im still obese :(

Well you only live once eh...but hopefully long enough for me to wear me jacket hehehe

Hope you like it, thanks for listening to me rambling!
Lots love xx
