A New Best - WAHOO!

In August last year I wrote a blog post about trying to lose weight, I don’t think I mentioned my weight then but I was just over 12 stone. With the BMI thing that put me at very overweight but I was really pleased with myself because, at that time I’d lost about 35 pounds. A real achievement.

My magic moment came a few days ago when I stepped onto the dreaded scales. Every morning I hope I have lost more weight but some days I stay the same, some I lose and some I put on. I’ve been lingering around the same weight for a while, 11 stone, and my best ever weight was about 6 years ago when I reached 10st 13.5lb. 

I looked down at the scales and stepped on. Would this be the day? It seemed to take ages to settle but when it finally did I jumped off the scales and started dancing around the room like a crazy person. I’d done it, for the first time in my adult life I’d reached a new best weight. It was only half a pound but I was soooo pleased. I haven’t felt this good about myself in a long time and with the writing going well too I couldn’t be happier.

Yesterday I lost another pound and I’m now only two pounds away from not being overweight anymore. How awesome is that?! Most of the time it’s the kids that give me those magical moments but these last couple I’m keeping just for me. : )

    1. Thanks!

      The strange thing is I don't have a secret. All I've done is make sure I don't eat the same amount of food as the hubby and it's been dropping off. Just like magic! I wish I'd done it years ago!

      Admittedly I probably don't have as many sweets and crisps as I used to : ( but it is worth it. It means I get to go shopping to buy lots of shiny new clothes! *dances around with glee* : )

      To be honest it took me a while to lose the baby weight, my youngest is 4 in a couple of weeks!

      Ooh, just thinking about cake and crisps makes my stomach rumble. : )

  4. Huge congratulations, that is a magic moment. I used to lose weight so easily, but the past few years it has become more difficult. I'm now a hoverer, always hovering around what I'd like to be and what I really am!

    1. Thanks Nichola.

      I've never found it easy to lose weight which is why I was so surprised at the weight loss this time. I've been on diets before and tried really hard, never to reach my target but this time I might actually do it! I have until the middle of July and it's looking good.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting x
