Hands up! Who made a resolution to lose weight? How is it going so far? Here is why you shouldn’t give up or, if you already have, why you should get back on it.
Last March I wrote a post titled ‘I got fed up with being fat so I did something about it’. I decided to stop making excuses and start doing something about my weight following a harsh wake-up call brought on by my brother’s leukaemia diagnosis.
At my heaviest around the time of the photo above taken in September 2015, I weighed over 14 stones and was a size 18 – although I snipped my size 16 underwear at the seams because I couldn’t bear admitting I needed to go up yet another number.
I thought it was about time I updated you on my progress.
Here is a photo taken this morning after an hour and a half workout…
Five dress sizes lower.
Loads of inches off.
Much fitter and healthier than before.
I would say excuse the lack of make-up and the sweat but I don’t want to. That lack of make-up and sweat displays just a little of the hard work and dedication needed to get from the first photo to the second one.
Losing weight is not easy.
Staying on the right track when life is throwing up all kinds of obstacles that you could easily use as excuses to fall off the wagon takes commitment.
…if you believe in yourself and want something badly enough, you can do anything.
Even when you’re a mum of 13.
If I can do it, you can.
I’ll be sharing some things I have learnt during my journey, including tips, recipes and an in-depth review on DDP Yoga, the workout that changed my life (not an ad, not paid for, but a real discovery on an exercise programme that actually works based on a recommendation from Jimmy).
