I've been getting asked a lot recently how I keep going and what's my motivation??? Well it this basically, I'm my own motivation 🤷♀️. I am so much happier in my own skin, but not just because I'm 10 stone lighter but because I am 100% fitter and healthier
Why would I want to go back to how I used to be. I was exhausted all the time, I got tired just walking up 1 flight of stairs to my flat. So once I got up there I liked to stay there and hide and eat my emotions 😔
my skin was dry and I got terrible spot breakouts.
Now I'm full of energy, I will actively walk up stairs rather than take a lift or escalator (ironically I now live in a bungalow 😂) I exercise at least 6 times a week 💪
My skin is sooo much better due to eating better and drinking plenty water rather than fizzy pop.
So as I said why would I undo all my hardwork...... And yes it is hard work but so was being overweight! I've just picked my hard 💪
I wasn't sure if I should post this....especially after the horrible troll who was fat shaming earlier. But, I was cheered on by my Insta family (you know who you are) to go for it, So here is my #weightlosswednesday
This is me & this is my body. If you don't like it, that's ok! because I do 😁 this body has got me through a hell of a lot over almost 29 years & I'm damn proud of it & damn proud of myself.
Today’s Stats..... I’ve had another great day on plan today, used my Healthy Extra B, Both my Healthy Extra A’s, 14 and a half syns 😇, drank 3 litres of water/squash AND ended the day over my 10,500 step goal 💪🏼💪🏼
Almost a perfect day on plan I’d say!
Weigh Day for me in the morning and as I’ve not attended a group for over 4 weeks I have no idea what to expect 🤷🏻♀️ I did weigh in at home last week and that showed a maintain. I have been so good this bank holiday weekend but then Monday night I did go over my syns so who knows?! What will be will be! All I know is I’m looking forward to getting back to group and looking forward to a great week ahead!
Little bit of positivity for a Thursday evening. Had a maintain today, which after a couple of cheat days and a lack of gym time I fully expected. Back in the gym tomorrow for a 14 sessions in 12 days streak before my next weigh in (last before my hol) to get a bit closer to target but love lookin at this for the reminder of how far I've come. .
🌺 T E A 🌺 Toby Carvery!!! I think this is actually my favourite place to eat out! I think this was 18 syns... Yorkshire pudding (8), 4 x roast potatoes (8), gravy (2) and everything else was syn free! .
Never forget how far you’ve come! Almost four years at target (mostly! 🙈😂) and it’s sometimes easy to forget how it felt to be three stone heavier. But getting home after running four #slimmingworld sessions today, and having met twelve gorgeous new members either starting a brand new journey or ready to crack on with an existing one having paused for a while, it hit home about how far I’ve come. I remember sitting there in the new member talk for about the seventh time, thinking “here we go again 🙄”. This time though, something clicked. I couldn’t keep doing this to myself. I either accepted myself as I was, and embraced the curvy me, or I committed once and for all and made the changes I knew I needed to make. Were they always easy? No. Are they easy now? Not always. Are they absolutely doable? Yes. Would I ever go back to how I was? Hell no. I’m never going back. I LOVE being a size 8/10. My body is far from perfect, but it’s strong and healthy and I’ll never take that for granted. If I can make just one person believe that they can do it too, then my work today has been done. #slimmingworld#slimmingworldconsultant#targetmember#weightloss#weightlossjourney#livingmybestlife#sw#swcommunity
🌺 L U N C H 🌺 I know this doesn't look appetising at all but it was delicious! Baked sweet potato with 2 Laughing Cow light triangles and roasted gammon (no speed cos it's the day before Tesco delivery day!)

Campfire stew, absolutely addicted too this lately, mushy peas broccoli and mash 😋
When you want something so bad keep going for it! I complain and complain constantly about my weight and allow myself to get so upset over it but I fall off plan and then decide it’s too embarrassing to go back incase I’ve put on.. it’s a weight loss support group and I need to remember that! I have so many things planned for this year and I don’t want yet another summer of kicking myself for doing nothing about my weight yet again and giving up yet again! @slimmingworld I’m so ready for you! ✨ #sw#slimmingworld#slimmingworldplan#swsupport#weightloss#foodoptomising#beamazing
