I was so chuffed today when my coach smiled and told me that I’d lost 4lb. That means that I have lost a total of 3 and a half stone I am so happy with myself, and in my head, I followed my coaches advise about complimenting and gave myself a silent pat on the back and congratulations.
I followed my usual weigh-in afternoon ritual by texting my fiancé, my mum and my mother-in-law to let them all know how I got on, and the reply I got from my mother-in-law stopped me in my tracks. Of course her text was brimming with congratulations and compliments, but then she said this – you’ve lost a Freddie!
Freddie is my almost 4 year old nephew, and when I look at my weight loss in the sense that I have lost more weight than he actually weighs, it actually stunned me. I have lost the equivalent of a 4 year old child, and some. That's mad!
