So before I went away on placement, I had a bit of a blip and and weighed in at around 12 stone 5 (see my previous post). I’ll admit it was a bit of a knock-back but thankfully, I stuck with it and managed to lose 6 pounds over the past 7 weeks.
Current weight: 12 stone (168 pounds)
Total weight loss so far: 22 pounds (just over 1.5 stone)
Remaining goal weight loss: 2 stone and 6 pounds (34 pounds)
So I didn’t achieve my short term goal of getting below the 12 stone mark but as you can see I am SO CLOSE. It’s proving to be an extremely slow journey but as long as my weight continues to drop over time, I’m happy.
I’m finally feeling happier with my body too. My waist is coming back, my cheekbones are coming back and instead of having five chins, I only have two… Ha! I actually took some photos recently – let’s compare them to how I looked when I first started this process:
I’ve still got a long way to go… I’m still classed as obese and Christmas is here (SANTAAAA) so it’s going to be tough for the next few weeks but my small goal during the holidays is to maintain my current weight, enjoy the festivities (in moderation) and then push hard in the new year. Think I can do it?
I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Enjoy yourselves! See you back here in 2016 feeling refreshed and ready to become fitter, healthier, stronger and more motivated than ever before. 🙂
