After hitting another milestone last night, my buddies on here have kinda egged me on to chuck some before and afters on this forum. Now, please understand, I'm not at target and I have 1 stone 10 lbs to get to my first target - I may stick at that but I'm all for assessing when I get there.

Quick background for anyone who doesn't know....

I started off my SW journey at 20 stone 7 lbs. I'm nearly at my 2 year anniversary of losing. I haven't smashed through it as quickly as some but to be honest, I'm not racing anyone, I didn't gain all that weight in a month, and a girl has still gotta have a social life right? ;)

Here I am, way back in 2008 (apologies for my friends face in the first one...)

Moving swiftly on...



And then the dreaded work photo. This actually makes me feel disgusted with myself but I've changed and if this isn't motivation then I don't know what is!


During my journey

This was at Xmas (outfit for my work do!)


And most recent of head shot - no full length ones recently but hopefully soon to update :)


So there we have it! Well, until target anyway! Hope it's not put any of you off your food (god forbid!) and if any one can take inspiration from my journey then I'll be one happy lass.

Good luck to all Starting, continuing and maintaining on this fabulous diet and change of life xxx

Yay Minks! You've done SO fabulously. It is great to see for me personally as someone with a similar amount to lose (and only about half way there!) When you see people losing 17 stone in a week (ok slight exaggeration), it is really good to see someone who has gains as well as losses, and like you said, you're not racing anyone! Reading your diary has helped me not be so hard on myself for those gains, so long as the general trend is downwards, and seeing how far you have come, doing it in a normal way, means I know I can plod my arse there too. :)

Basically - woop woop minx you lb kicker!

Awww you're all too kind :D

Honestly, and I've said it before, if it weren't for you guys helping me along and keeping me sane there have been times when I've just thought ah to hell with it. Maybe for an hour, maybe for a day, but it's passed by and I've continued and that's partly down to you all. So huge thanks goes out to everyone for your support.

Couldn't have done it without ya xxx
