Not long after id had Charlie I decided this is it I HAVE to change my ways. I was living off takeaways and could easily get out of breath climbing the stairs. This often worried me, how will I run with my son in the park?? After a few months of home dieting and settling in I took the plunge and joined weight watchers, my first weigh in was 17 stone 11lbs. Embarrassment was my only feeling, not 'youve just had a baby'. I knuckled down and got to around 14 stone 7lb again, this was overaround 9 months or so. I werent satisfied at this weight. I knew id get lower. I then left ww for a few months to try it alone but gained so rejoined!!
Next I decided to try slimming world -being a girl who obviously loves her grub!!!! This was an amazing plan, dont understand the science but it works! In a matter of months id dropped to 12 and a half stone (7 stone pre baby weight loss) I had also began running around this time, I could actually do it without feeling like I was dying! A slow steady build up into running really worked. Due to costs and work commitments I had to leave sw but soon took up the current fab fad of 5:2. This twinned with 30 day shred and insanity took me to my lowest.......11 stone 8lb. I loved the treat days, and I soon learned not to over Indulge. This was my problem from day one....eyes bigger than my tummy. My clothes have gone from an 18-20 to a size 10,this has been my main motivation. I'm shopping in places ive never been able to look twice at.
My husband has always said he fancies me no matter what but looking back at my old me photos he doesnt want me to change. Anyone can lose weight you just have to want to do it- thats half the battle.
