35 lbs weight loss picture


I weighed in on Friday night and had a 2 lb weight loss.
A 2 lb loss that only bloomin’ well got me my 2.5 stone (35 lbs) weight loss award. HOLY COW!

The last couple of weeks have been a little slow.
1/2 lb here, 1/2 lb there.
But I perservered.
Those 1/2 lbs all added up!

2.5 stone weight loss

When I started this journey in January, I couldn’t even imagine this moment.
It seemed like an unattainable figure way out in the distance.
I have NEVER achieved this much weight loss with any other programme…
… and here I am – I achieved it. THIRTY FIVE POUNDS GONE!!!

I got the all-important certificate and shiny sticker for my book :)
I’m gonna have to move over to the front cover real soon!

Weight Loss Update

Starting weight: 13st 8lbs
Current weight: 11st 1lbs
Weight loss so far: 2.5 stone (35lbs)
Starting clothes size: 18
Current clothes size: 12 (USA 8)  << US sizing is SO much nicer!

Forgive all the numbers!
With an international readership too, I try to include weights and sizes that everyone will ‘get’. (Sorry Australia – kilos would just confuse it even more!)

Side note: and just WHY hasn’t the world gone metric, yet?!?!

I have another 15 lbs to go to my originally planned weight loss goal of 50 lbs.
That will take me to 10 stone (140 lbs).
Although,  maybe 9.5 stone would be better?
I think I need to get there and just see.

Hope you’re having a nice Monday so far.  Talk to you soon, okay?

      Hi Jeni, honestly… there is no secret. I’m just a girl who was sick of feeling bad about herself. So one day, I decided to change it – and I haven’t looked back since.

      I go to a local Slimming World class and honestly, it is the ONLY programme that I have ever stuck too. I think it’s important to find a good Consultant too, and where I go, she is awesome.

      Thank you! I’ve still a way to go, but it’s exciting to see the transformation really taking shape at long last :)
