    15stone or 210lbs or 95kg lighter my story

    Hi and well im sure a few of you already know me and now ive finally been at my target for a few weeks i thought i would make a thread showing some new and old pics and to tell you a little bit about my journey so far.

    So i started on 1st January 2012 and on that day i weighed 30stone which was at the time really upsetting so i decided this was it and i wasnt having it anymore and decided to make a change. After the first week i made my mind up to join a slimming club and as both of my sisters had started at Slimming World i decided that i was going to join as it sounded like it would suit me.

    My younger brother also decided he was going to join and we both started on 10th Jan. On that date i weighed in on there scales at 28st 8.5lbs so in the first 10 days i had already dropped 1st 5.5lbs. I must admit it was pretty scary going to Slimming World for the first time and it did help that my brother decided to join to but once you have been that first time it is fine.

    I do think it is harder for a Man to join than Women as i would say every group must be 90%+ women but i would advise any Man (or Woman) to join and dont be scared of it as once you have been the first time everything will be fine.

    I found the vesatility of what i could do with food a revalation as i was still eating large meals but the meals were alot more healthy. I also love the fact that i havent found any meal that you cant tweak to be slimming world friendly.

    I also started with doing exercise as well as a change of diet. With this i started slow and built up over time each week adding more and more. I started out and a mini bike and walking, only doing 5 mins at a time on the bike and about 20 mins walking. I increased this week on week until i was doing 60 mins + on the bike and walking for 2hours at a time.

    By Feb i decided i wanted to start adding weight training in the mix to as i had loads of weights and a bench that i had had for a couple of years but never used much. I did research on the internet and brought some books to help me make my own plan up.

    Anyway as the months went on the weight dropped off every single week and i didnt have a maintain or a gain until i got to target.

    I must say i can not put my finger on what it is but something has just clicked in head that the time was now to get this done before something bad happens to my health.

    I have loads more to my story but i will put some pics up and add more at another time.

    Yeah it is pretty hard taking that first step and it was easier for me because i went with my brother. But i cant recommend it enough though and once you have been to the first meeting you will be fine.

    That is an awesome transformation and incredibly motivating. I'm planning on using slimming world to maintain my weight loss when I come off the Exante diet I'm doing.

    Congratulations you must feel like a new person.

    Cheers and yes i feel like a completely different person, obviously im still the same but more confident, more outgoing, enjoy life more, get out and about more etc etc etc.

    I use both slimming world and calorie counting for my maintainence and its working so far. I dont eat any rubbish anymore just good foods.
