This week, I am very excited to have hit another weight loss milestone.
I got my 3 stone weight loss award.
Oh. Em. Gee!
Given my ridiculously pitiful past attempts at weight loss and diets, I honestly did not think this was even possible.
I never believed this was in me to achieve. How wrong was I?!
I actually felt quick sick and emotional pulling out that dreaded ‘before’ photo to share with you.
I’ve really grown to hate it. I never, ever want to go back there again. Ever.
I cannot tell you how good it feels to be standing here 3 stone lighter.
(Actually, the ‘during’ photo above was taken a couple of weeks ago when I was buying some new jeans – it was the most recent I could find so I’ve actually lost a couple of extra pounds since then!)
Weight Loss Update
Starting weight: 13st 8 lbs (US 190 lbs)
Current weight: 10st 7 lbs (US 147 lbs)
Weight loss so far: 3 stone, 1 lb (US 43 lbs)
Starting clothes size: 18 (USA 14)
Current clothes size: 10/12 (USA 6/10)
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!)
I will come back and update this post with a ‘this week’ photo as soon as I can. In the meantime, I was just so excited to share this news with you!
