On a Roll!!

Time for a change

Good morning everyone, I havent been around as much as i used to be i often snoop around reading the odd thread and getting Recipe ideas. But i just read Laddiesboy's thread about his man of the year win and newspaper article. Wow i was so blown away, sucha utterly fantastic acheivement. Reading from another guys perspective really helps me to relate to it, and how ive been feeling myself.
I'll try not to rammble on too much but my life has completely changed since i started going to slimming world, Like beyond what i thought was possible!
I'm now 2.5 pounds off target and ive never felt better then any stage in my life. Ive lost weight in the past following other diets and such, like im sure most people have, but something about SW just clicked with me, and i found an amazing group and a great consultant that all had a profound effect on me. I also realised that just losing the weight wasnt the answer, i took a look at myself in the mirror and decided if i dont change my ways now, all the weight loss would be for nothing. I strived to be better as a whole. Made a bunch of new friends, many from my SW group. Took up activites, walking, running, dancing, I guess i kinda through myself into everything, but it worked.
But besides the weight, My other problem was my own self confidence! i believed i didnt deserve better. This took some serious soul searching. But im emerging from it all a completely different person. I learnt how to feel proud about who i am and what ive acheived. Im Just so full of positivity and love theses days and long may it continue. Sorry if its put anyone off their breakfast but i was compelled to write after what id read.
Hope everyone has a great day
Andy!
