yummy mummy rather than frumpy mummy
Hi thought my first post on my diary should say who I am and a but about me and my struggle with weight.
I'm Rachael, I'm 31 originally from Cheshire, South Manchester., but now living in Bristol with my husband Luke.
I have 2 gorgeous and very bright little girls, Phoebe Louise who is 4 1/2 and Hayley Anne who has recently turned 3. We moved to Bristol in February 2013 and haven't looked back since.
Since being 18/19 I have put weight on, done a fair number of fad diets and ended up putting more weight back on after stopping each diet. Late 2013/early 2014 saw me at my heaviest.
when I was 18 I was a size 10/12 and weighed 70kg. When starting slimming world January 2014 I was 124.8kg/19st 8lb.
After years of bullying/abuse about being so thin I swore that I would put a bit of weight on to shut people up and stop the name calling. I got everything from anorexic, bean pole, limp biscuit the lot. Depression kicked in and the weight had continued to pile on. I did lipotrim 4 years ago and got down to 97kg as soon as I stopped lipotrim the weight came back plus more.
To date since starting slimming world I have lost 22lbs and tonight saw me achieve my 1.5 stone award
join me on my journey to become a yummy mummy
