Hello there, I'm Hannah. I've been doing slimming world for a while now but to be honest the last year I just played at it. I got married in August and managed to get my stone award the week before and looked lovely in my dress, but I should have been much smaller - had I stuck to it properly I would have been. Saying that, I don't look at the photos and hate them, they are lovely and I am slimmer in them than I have been in a long time. Since August that stone has slowly gone back on; half a stone before Christmas and half a stone over Christmas and New Year. I restarted my slimming world journey on Saturday and have about 4 and a half stone to lose in total. No more excuses. 2014 WILL be my year. I know that I have many hurdles that will get in my way (my Dad has terminal cancer), and there will be many more things sent to test me I have no doubt, but all I can do is my best. If I lose just under 1 and a half pounds a week, that would get me to target by 2015 - if I fall just short I really don't mind, I just don't want to look back over 2014 and think, I've spent the best part of £260 on slimming world (that doesn't include mags or hifi bars!) and have played at it yet again. I turn 30 in July so I'd love to be 2 stone lighter by then. Anything more is a bonus. I'm going to keep a diary here; I'm hoping it will give me the encouragement to stick to it. I don't even mind if nobody reads it - though if you do, feel free to comment or give me tips etc! I'm doing this for me I know it won't be easy (especially with all the biscuits and sweets in the office at work!) but I am fed up of being overweight, having hot flushes and being sluggish all the time. No more excuses!!! Bring it on!!!!!!
