Transformation Story ...

In this post a pictures going to speak a thousand words. I have got to a part in my life where I am so proud of how far i've come, that at times i'd love to shout it from the roof tops. Unknown to some before I lost weight I was quite an unhappy person, I was changing jobs all the time, I used to make excuses of why not to go out with the girls because I had no energy in me to try and find something that would make me look half decent. Although as much as I love my other half to pieces I could tell he wasn't as attracted to me as he used to be. It took stern words from my mum, being in a car crash and losing my job, to make me really think about the decision I was making, it made me really think about how unhappy I actually was. Its amazing how much you could cover up with a fake smile, but I had got to a point that I couldnt cover up how unhappy I was any longer, instead of letting myself feel sorry for myself, I decided to get off my arse and do something about it. And from then on I started my journey, it wasnt just a weight loss journey, it was a journey to find myself again, the person people used to love to see so many years ago. 

This has been the hardest 18 months, harder than I ever expected it would be, this journey has been physically and mentally draining. At times I thought I was going to give up, but I didnt, beacuse I have the best support network, ever. If it wasn't for my family and friends, I possibly may have given up months ago, without their continuous support and encouragement I wouldn't have come this far. And unfortunately for them they've had to deal with all my hormones and mood swings during all of this. Lack of carbs can make me very grumpy!! LOl


So at the start, back in February 2014, I was FAT! I was fitting into size 14-16 clothes, normally size 16 because I felt if I wore the bigger size it wouldn't show my lumps and bumps as much. I stopped making effort, instead I just stayed in, because I knew there was nothing I could wear that would make me look better.

July 2015. I have lost 3.5 stone (49 pounds,22kg). I didn't even realise I had that much weight to lose. I am now fitting in size 8-10 clothes, so I have dropped 3 dress sizes. Not only do I look good, but I feel amazing. Last week a friend asked me 'If you could go back to any time of your life which would be the happiest?' And my reply, None, because the happiest time of my life is right now! I have never felt this good about myself, my new confidence helped me find a great job that is going to lead on to a (hopefully) life long career, as much as I don't see them as much as I would like to, the time I spend with the girls is full of laughs and great memories, and fab nights out in cute dresses! My relationship has rekindled and we couldn't be happier together. And i'm so much less grumpy now my body is filled with the right things.

This is my transformation story, I hope I can motivate some of you guys to start your transformation. If I can do it, anyone can.
