    NEW PHOTOS ON PAGE 5 TOO!

    Hi all,

    Some of you might have seen these photos, as they're in my profile, but I'm struggling a little at the moment to keep my mojo, so I've decided to post them on here as a motivational aid!

    The first two show me at my heaviest - nearly 17 stone. It's only now that I realise how miserable I was at that weight and just how much it affected my life.

    Just 3.5lbs to go to reach my first target and be in the 10s for the first time in over 20 years! :D

    It's taken me a long time, but boy has it been worth it!

    [​IMG]

    May 2010 - 16st 13lbs. This was the straw that broke the camel's back...

    [​IMG]

    June 2010 - 16st 5lbs. A weekend away with friends - felt awful all weekend...

    [​IMG]


    March 2011 - 13st 5lbs. Feeling much better and enjoying another weekend away. More energy, more confidence!

    [​IMG]

    August 2011 - about 12st 5lbs. New clothes, new confidence!

    [​IMG]

    September 2011 - my 43rd birthday 11st 10lbs and feeling 10 years younger!

    [​IMG]

    December 2011 - 11st 3lbs - 18 months on and 5st 10lbs lighter! Christmas night out - felt fantastic!

    Here's to getting those last few pesky pounds off in the new year!

    Thank you Slimming World! :D

    Wow - thank you all for your lovely comments! I have to say that I do feel absolutely fab these days - well, most of the time anyway! I have a terrible new shopping habit though... :eek:

    It is lovely to feel that I might be inspiring someone else to lose weight and feel as great as I do! :D

    Charleybabes, all I can say is stick with it! I have often described myself as a tortoise not a hare - there are lots of people on here who have lost more than I have, more quickly, but the fabulous thing about SW for me is that I can fit it into my normal life. With other diets, you end up changing your life to fit the diet - that never happens with SW... If I go out to eat, there's usually something SW-friendly, if not, or if I want to have a bit of a blow-out, well there's always weekly synning, or flexi-synning!

    I think the other important thing for me was finding meals that a) my son would also eat and b) were quick and easy to prepare. As a single parent with a full-time job, both of those were important, so the recipe section on here, together with SW recipe books, have been an absolute godsend. I now have 6 or 7 recipes for which I always have the ingredients in and which can be prepared in less than half an hour - faster than you can order and pick up a takeaway!

    Good luck on your journey! xx

    Fantastic Spanx! - or as others often say...Swit Swoo look at you!

    I love these threads, (that's why I did one) isn't it amazing when you are the star of these before and after photos?

    We all see them in the magazines and newspapers wishing it could be "me".

    Well, dreams come true, and this is your moment. I'm sure you will inspire others too - this is almost as good as doing it for yourself.

    Thanks Krupskaya - and congratulations for getting to target! Woohoo! x

    Thanks Moppet and good luck on your journey! You've made the best start possible, by finding this site - it really is amazing! x

    Thanks to everyone for your lovely comments. I am pleased to report that after a week of over-indulgence and a well-deserved 2lbs gain, I am chomping at the bit to get back on plan and get these last few pounds off! Look out 2012 - here I come! :D
