It’s a Picture Special! oh dear…

Okay, so when I was looking through all my pics the other day on here and the huge difference in my size has been a real shock…

I mean when I first started this journey cause I was really overweight and now it’s worse…

Lets have a stroll down memory lane..

This was the first picture I shared… first of all PLEASE do not look at that haircut! (cringe) So the left is 5.5 years ago and the right is just over 6 years…picFrame (3)
There isn’t much between the 2 and I still have the dress on the left (it’s a size 22) that’s 2 dress sizes I have gone up in the last 5.5 years…

Next up:

This time we have the picture that gave me a kick back up the backside to try and do something about my weight, it was me as Harley at Comic Con in Birmingham 2015, The picture on the right (in my stunning QPR shirt which is now WAY too tight on me) was taken the following July, this was after I moved to Wales.
MyCollageI know I did lose weight in this time, it wasn’t much but you could see it. After then I started a new job, my life crumbled apart and I’m sad to say I lost my way a few times and eventually this is where I am now…

This is me… MAY 2019

I just need to keep at it this time…. Wish me luck!

A Roller Coaster of 3.5 years.

I’m not sure why but tonight I decided to go back to January 2016. This is when I deleted everything from before and started a fresh.

I was 329lbs then …. that’s 23st 7lbs.
I am now 348lbs24st 12lbs

That’s plus 19lbs in 3.5 years (42 months)

When I look at it that way, things don’t seem so bad. I know I have dropped weight and piled it back on again, multiple times over the years but thinking since my WW journey began 3.5 years ago I am now ONLY 19lbs heavier, That makes me feel like this is doable, That I can move on and be the person I am meant to be, I can be healthier, Yes up to now, this hasn’t worked but it’s about finding my fit.

There are some pictures which I’ll add over the next week too…

New Diet, New Attempt

So, They changed WeightWatchers so much… now WW that I really really struggled with it, the new points meant that as someone with a dairy intolerance I was really stuck with choice. I was constantly over my points and I piled the weight back on.

As you can imagine it has been really hard, I cancelled my membership and decided to give it up and go it alone, so here I now am 2 stone heavier thinking WTF have I done?

So I have signed up to Slimming World, going to give it a few months and see how I get on. There is a lot more choice and so far it seems to be working for me.

#WeighinWednesday we will find out just how much it does work!

Hope you are all having a fab week and here we go again…
