I hit another weight loss milestone this week.
3.5 stone (49 lbs) gone. Forever.
And… I achieved it on my birthday!
How cool is that? Happy birthday to me!
Now THAT was a great present to receive Although, not exactly gift-wrapped with a bow and presented to me.
I had to work for that weight loss. Every pound of it.
But I did get a cool certificate and sticker to add to my collection. And my fellow Slimming World slimmers will know, it’s all about the stickers, baby.

When I started this journey, 3.5 stone weight loss was a dream. I could not even visualise what it would be like to lose that much weight as it had been so long since I’d been there.
Now, 20 years and 2 kids later, I weigh less than when I was 18 years old.
Weight Loss Update
Starting weight: 13st 8lbs
Current weight: 10st 1lbs
Weight loss so far: 3.5 stone (49 lbs)
Starting clothes size: 18
Current clothes size: 10 (USA 6) << 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!)
My target goal of 50 lbs is now only 1 lb away.
Target is right around the corner.
Holy cow, this is happening’ y’all!
