Finally – 8 Stone Award Slimming World

It’s been a long time coming. For one reason and another and I’ve been losing and gaining the same stone since I got my 7 stone award last August.

I don’t know why I found it so easy to lose 7 stone in one year then have it take 6 months to lose 1 stone but no matter how long this journey takes, I’m going to get to my destination ๐Ÿ™‚

For those who don’t know, I started my Slimming World journey in August 2012. I weighed in at 31 stone 1lb. I hardly left the house, I was having trouble breathing and had pain somewhere on my body everyday.

I now weigh 23 stone 1lb and this time week I finally want to be able to say goodbye to the 23 stone category and hello to 22 stones! Once I can break through that barrier I believe it’ll give me the boost I need to start losing properly again.

I’m 38 in 19 weeks and if I knuckle down and work at it, I can be at least 2 stone, if not 3 stone lighter by my birthday.
Losing 2lb a week, every week till my birthday in July will take me out of the 300lb category as well which will be another huge boost ๐Ÿ™‚

Wish me luck!

    Well done, that is amazing. I lost 3 stone over 5 years ago, but it's a constant battle to keep to my current weight and not put any back on again. I accept that healthy eating is for life but through the winter it can be hard. Good luck with your birthday goal ๐Ÿ™‚

    wow at 7 stone in one year! and really well done! that's really inspirational to hear how you have got on. I need to lose a few stone myself, I found slimming world great when I did it before but I need to go back to it really – it's been 2 years now since I had my youngest and haven't got back to it yet!!!

    Well done girl!! I've struggled with weight my whole life, lost nearly 6st in 2011, but one way and another put it all back on and having to start all over. 8st is an AMAZING achievement, and you have every reason to be proud! Truly inspirational! xx

    Absolutely amazing! I have dieted all my life & now after a pregnancy , crutches and the resulting damage I am even heavier. I have tried most of the diets, but need help as nothing works long term. Well done for sticking at it x
