The Transformation - Week 16 In Slimming World

Hey Dolls,

You will most likely have seen this picture I shared yesterday of my latest progress picture. It reached over 100K people ahhhhh what the hell!!!! 



Anyway, as it was my birthday last weekend I completely fell off the SW bus and went wild. I ate so much crap (but delicious crap haha) I was dreading my weigh in this morning. UP 2.5lb!!!! But I thought to myself, it's not the end of the world, you had an amazing week, enjoyed every bite of cheese covered goodness and every cocktail.

On top of my birthday, I also had my bestie finally come home from her 2 years stint in Australia (the Eddie Rocket ritual was a must) and a number of events to attend, where they force tropical cocktails,  beautiful cupcakes and sweets down my throat! No, I know, no excuses! No one forced me into it but I wanted to enjoy it all and it just goes to show that I can't overindulge like that. My body doesn't cope with bad crappy junk food. It just doesn't like it as much as my taste buds do!

To be honest I do feel sluggish and have no energy and I haven't been sleeping right the last couple of nights. That was an extremely long intro.

Long story short, I ate crap and gained weight haha.

So after my class today, and the amazing feedback and support I received from all of you, I had an idea to share my overall weight loss since last summer and compare it to the weight gain I had this week. I wanted to share with you that a little gain is ok, don't beat yourself up. Look at the bigger picture and learn from your mistakes. Every day is a second chance.

***** WARNING VEGETARIANS LOOK AWAY NOW*****


I asked a butcher to weigh out just how much I have lost in the year and compare it to the 2.5lb gain I had this week. He looked at me like I had ten heads and then found it hard to find enough meat to match what I had lost haha. He also said he'd never done anything like this in his life before!!!

Welcome to the mad mind of FacesByGrace!!!!

So in June last year I weighed a whopping 14 stone 4lb. I lied when my mam asked me if I had gained weight after my holiday. I was too embarrassed to admit I had. I was at my all time heaviest of 201.6lb!!!!!! Last week I got down to 155.4lb which meant I had lost 46.2lb!!!!!! Bare in mind I am tall, 5;6 and my excuse was I weigh heavy because my heart is so full of love!!! hahaha that is probably the cheesiest thing I will admitt to 

Here is a look at what 46 pound looks like! Shocking isn't it!!!





Here is the 2.5 pounds I gained today!





 In the grand scheme of things it wasn't a huge gain but it's the last cheat week I will have for a long time. I'm back on it and going to try cook more adventurous, clean healthy meals, lead an extremely active lifestyle and just be happy and healthy!

I hope this post is helpful and inspires those of you who want to do it, to stop thinking and start doing. Nothing tastes as good as happy and healthy feels :)

I love you all

  1. This is an amazing transformation! I am at the moment the heaviest I have ever been and really want to lose a stone and a half before a wedding I have in October but I keep finding excuse and after excuse - "Im too busy", "sure I ate well last week" but I know in my heart and soul I am not doing anything to fix it. I just need to find where to get that motivation like you did!

  4. Wow! That's amazing! I can't believe the difference in your arms and face. I'm in around the weight you were last year. It's so inspiring to see the difference it can make, as I always lose seven to ten pounds and then say "I can't notice any difference," and I'll gain it again as I lose motivation. But seeing this (and that when I lose motivation I'm usually almost a quarter of the way to where you are) is so helpful. Thanks for sharing this, Grace!

  6. Wonderful transformation, Grace! Slimming World is definitely the one. It's not a fast weight loss but it's consistent and you change the way you view food for a healthy life. I've started blogging about my Slimming World journey to help and inspire others who may be at a loss whilst trying to lose the weight like I was. Keep up the Snapchats by the way, me and my sister love nosying into your make-up collection - ahhhhmazing!

  9. Hi there! I've read many posts about military diet, and I can tell that yours is very valuable. The egg is considered to be one of the most nutritious foods on the planet as it packs lots of nutrients and vitamins in its small and fragile shell. Even more, you’ll only consume about 70 calories per serving. http://3daysmilitarydiet.com/faq/eggs-in-military-diet.html
