My Weight Loss Battle

 

*All opinions are my own, I have not been sponsored, paid or gifted any items in respect of my views and opinions.*

Being overweight is nothing new to me. I’ve spent most of my adult life overweight. But two years ago I got into the obese territory and with a current BMI of 34.3, I have attempted to do something about it.

I am a size 16 and in more recent times find the thought of clothes shopping as torture! At 23, I was a size 12 and enjoyed a variety of clothes then two kids later and two dress sizes later and I’m considering surgery!

Sounds drastic, but I’ve been there and got the t-shirt. I’ve tried various diets and plans

1. Slimming world – four times

2. Weight Watchers – twice

3. Tesco Diets – twice

4. Counting calories – too many

5. Slim fast – I lasted one shake

6. And back to calorie counting

Friends and family have assisted supporting me with various clubs and groups but ultimately I fail if I don’t see results in weeks! This has been the last 11 years of my life!

I know you are probably sitting there thinking I’m some obese plus size woman like you see on tv but this was the last photograph of me taken at Christmas. I can still shop in most shops.

I don’t share photos of myself easily but this is me going on record that 2019 there will be no more excuses, it’s about putting me first!

I want to share my weight loss journey with you, I think it will give me the motivation to keep at it even on bad days.

1st week weigh in was 6lbs loss!

This is the start of my weight loss journey, has anyone been there, going through it, want a motivation buddy? Please comment, I’d love to hear your thoughts and feelings.

Thanks for reading…
