Start Weight: 22 stone 10 lbs
Curreny Weight: 20 stone 1 lbs
I've been contemplating for a while to start a diary.. I didn't want to start one in case I just ended up not writing in it much, but I thought why not? If I get an audience it will keep on bringing me back
Been battling with my weight loss seriously for the last 2 years, from the very first weigh in I've lost 2 stones and 9 lbs, although since starting slimming world this time I've lost 1 and half stones. Every time I have got to about this weight, I start to slip but I truly believe this time it is different.
My head is in a much better place, my life is a much better place to be living in and I have time to excuses (or no excuses should I say.. lol)
Some of you will know me from around the forum, but for those who don't-
I'm Rozie I turned 28 a month ago and have been married for 4.5 years.
I've been big all of my life. I weighed 9 lbs when I was born and used to steal my little sisters milk LOL which is why she is so slim now my mum jokes LOL I have never been slim, never known what its like to go to high street shops, never know what its like to be normal I guess. And I want to change it.
Forget the aesthetic side to things- I want to be healthy. I don't want to be panting when I walk a flight of stairs. And I don't want to have high blood pressure or be scared that i'll get adult diabetes (although that will more than likely happen because its heavily in the family). I don't want to have friction boils (TMI I know) or sweaty flab rolls (again, sorry LOL.. but its the reality, right?).
Most of all, I want a child. I want motherhood.
So this is my long quest to becoming a mother. Even if I'm 30 before I have my first one, I want to be healthy before I do. I could have a baby now (if God willed) but I know there would be so many complications. My sister had to have all of her children via C-section and the pain and the infections she had after wards (because of the belly fat covering her wound).. no thanks. I don't want to go through that.
So yeah, that's why I want to lose weight. Its the same all cliché I suppose. I don't want to lose weight for any other reasons you all want to lose weight.
I follow the SW plan- EE for those inclined and am part of a group.
I weigh in every Tuesday evening, and I really enjoy group. I think that's why i'm more focussed this time. Having a good consultant and group members is a really massive thing.
I've been weighed in 12 times in group and I've lost a stone and half so that's 1/2 stone a month. Which is exactly my goal. 1/2 stone a month is 6 stones in a year. Imagine that.
The next stone is the trickiest as I mentioned earlier. Once I've smashed through that I know there's no stopping me.
So, I hope you're here to join me on this slippery slope to slim-dom.. There'll be laughter, tears, but lots of fun
