    Another success story with diet and exercise!

    Just a quickie.... I started with a trainer in the gym on the 21st November 2011 at 18 stone. I am now 12 stone that is a loss of 6 full stone in such a short space of time.

    I'll be honest when I was 18 stone the thoughts of waiting 9 months to lose 6 stone really didn't appeal to me... I wanted it gone now and wanted the quickest option. Then I decided to try the exercise and healthy eating route... as much as I said it didn't work or wouldn't work for me... I never actually tried it for longer than a week!!! Well it does work... I put a lot of work in both on the eating and exercise side of it but it was so well worth it and I feel stronger now than ever both physically and mentally. 9 months has flown by and looking back on it now I wonder why I felt that giving 9 months or how ever long it was going to take to lose the weight was such a bad thing. The benefits from losing weight just keep coming every day....

    It wasn't all plain sailing... I have had days/weekends/weeks off plan both planned and no so planned but I now have tools in relation to eating that I can fall back into relatively easy because I am just used to eating healthy now.

    I have attached a pic which shows the difference from my grad last year to my grad this year.... I just felt amazing at my grad this year I cannot tell you all how worth it it was.

    I am never ever going back and would never go near another quick fix lose loads of weight in a couple of months diet again... I am not dissing them but I have done them and I feel that they thought me nothing about the real world of food and temptation that we need to go back to unless we stay on them forever!!

    This was supposed to be a quickie but turned into a bit of a rant... sowwwy!!!! I have another two stone to go and hope to have it gone by the 21st November 2012 meaning I would have lost 8 stone in a year!!!!

    Omg well done! You look absolutely fantastic! I want to lose two stones and I'm setting myself a target of three months. Ideally it's inches that I want to lose so reading your success story is just inspiring me to be patient more! Good luck with the last two stones! Yayyyy you!
