Roll up, roll up, come see the amazing shrinking woman

May 15, 2013

I know how she feels

I’m a very chuffed bunny.  Tuesday marked the end of my first month at Slimming World and in that time I’ve lost 9lbs!!!!!

I must confess I was pretty sceptical at the start.  I’ve never really done a ‘diet’ before and generally speaking I’m pretty disorganised.  Considering that I am really not good a sticking to things I really thought I wasn’t going to do that well with the plan.

Well, I can honestly say that in the last month I’ve eaten really well.  I’m organised and plan meals.  I’ve started to enjoy cooking.  Even more surprising is that the times I have been ‘bad’ and fallen off the waggon haven’t really impacted my progress.  I’ve been to gigs, birthday parties, drank and had cakes and am still losing weight.

To say I’m shocked is an understatement.

So, now I’m 2lbs away from the target I set myself.  I wanted to be 179lb for the photoshoot and I’m now 181!  I’ve been losing 2.5lb most weeks and so have a real chance of hitting the target.  I can’t describe how good it feels getting this far, I haven’t weighed less than 13 stone since I was about 25.  I’ve now lost 3.5 stone in total and can’t believe the difference when I look at photos from before.

Here’s hoping the downward trend continues 🙂
