OMFG I finally did it....
For the last month I have been trying to get my 2 stone award and today is the day I did! You have no idea how happy I am and how proud of myself I am. When I joined Slimming World on the 20th of January I never imagined I would be down 2 stone in 14 weeks. It really goes to show, if you work hard, change your mindset and your diet, you can achieve anything. This week I was down 1.5 pounds :)
I am now only 3 pounds away from my target. I am very happy with my weight now but would like to tone up and get fit. I fit comfortably into a size 10 now and feel confident in my skin. That is the most important thing for me. It doesn't really matter what the scales say, it is how I feel myself and how I feel when I look in the mirror. I love being able to wear clothes now that I wouldn't have even tried on 3 months ago.
With summer approaching quickly I am so glad I got my diet and weight loss journey started in the winter months. I won't be paranoid or self conscience this summer on holidays at the thought of wearing a bikini by the pool or shorts. That idea would have scared the life out of me a couple of months ago.
This is just a quick post to say thank you to all of you, my followers are so amazing, supportive and you all push me to do better every week. I get emails, comments and tweets everyday from you all telling me I am inspiring you and motivating you. Well, let me tell you, you all are inspiring me and pushing me because I don't want to let you all down.
This is only the beginning of my new healthy lifestyle and there is so much more to come from FacesByGrace. The next step is fitness. I really want to be fit and be able to run long distances, well like 10 km haha. With the help of my personal trainer Damy from @MethodFitness I will hopefully achieve these results by the summer.
This week I am recording my weekly food diary and will have that up by Sunday or Monday. I hope these posts don't get boring and help to motivate you to do something to benefit yourself.
Stay Happy & Healthy
