Yesterday – Saturday 27th December, 2014 – I achieved (and exceeded!) my new weight loss goal.
A total weight loss of 4 stone, 1.5 lbs (57.5 lbs)
And in Christmas week, too!
You may recall back at Halloween, I achieved my 3.5 stone (50 lbs) weight loss goal, and I was happy. Very happy.
But when I got there, I didn’t feel ‘right’. I mean, it felt good – but I wanted to go further.
Having got this far, I knew I could achieve more.
Plus, I felt twitchy at the 3.5 stone and wanted to round this up to 4
I didn’t make my new goal public, as I already started having people telling me not to lose any more weight. And you know what, if there is one thing that will make this stubborn girl do something… it’s telling her not, too. This is my body, and for the first time in forever, I am starting to like and love what I see. I won’t allow anyone tell me how I can or cannot feel, even if done with the best intentions. So thank you to those people for spurring me on
I started my Slimming World journey on Friday 3rd January, 2014 and was determined to reach my goal this same year. And I did!
One Girl: One Dream, One Goal

When I started this journey, I *thought* I wanted to rediscover the ‘old’ me.
I’ve gone beyond that.
I truly feel like a ‘new’ me. A happier me.
And whoever says weight loss doesn’t bring happiness, sure never felt the way that I’m feeling right now.
