I've been overweight for most of my life. I unintentionally slimmed down in my teens but I soon piled it back on. I've always been bothered (guilty, ashamed, depressed. You know how it is) but have never really found anything that was sustainable for me. A few months of feeling deprived and then I crack and never look back. At the age of 23 and 2 pregnancies later I have finally committed to losing weight and getting healthy. My scales broke not long after my daughter was born (June) and I ignorantly ate whatever and whenever I wanted (as I did through pregnancy.) I shrugged when my size 18 maternity jeans got tight and I'd jumped to a size 22! I joined Slimming World between Christmas and New Years and have lost 7.5lbs to date! I am upset at myself for putting so much weight on but are now thoroughly committed losing it! I don't tell any one how much I weigh or what size I am so it's kind of liberating doing it here. *Keep updating* Week 1: 19st 6.5lbs Week 2: 19st 3.5lbs [3lb loss] Week 3: 19st 1lb [2.5lb loss - 5.5lbs all together] Week 4: 18st 13lb [2lb loss - 7.5lbs all together] Week 5: 18st 10lb [3lb loss - 10.5lbs all together] Week 6: 18st 10lb [maintained. 10.5lbs all together] Week 7: 18st 6lbs [4lb loss - 14.5lbs all together] Weeeee!! Im very excited to change wish me luck!
