Well I have done it, I can’t believe it, but I have actually done it. I have lost a whopping 4 STONE! Actually, 4 stone and 1 pound to be exact!
For once, I think I’m lost for words….well, not completely! This is such a huge milestone for me, and I’m so proud of myself for doing so well and sticking it out. Not only do I feel a lot better for shedding the weight, I also look a lot better too, and this was proved when I visited a friend for lunch last week.
I headed to London to meet up with my friend and as I was working at the Coronation festival in the evening, I was wearing a new dress that flattered my shape and made me feel really good about myself. As I neared my friends place of work, I bumped into an old work colleague who stopped in her tracks and stared at me in disbelief. She was completely gob smacked at my transformation from when we worked together, and she was very complimentary about my weight loss and how radiant I looked.
I was really chuffed to bits with this, and it definitely put a spring in my step for the rest of the day. My friend and I headed off for lunch where I had the tastiest grilled chicken salad I think I’ve ever tasted, and when I left and headed to the tube station, it dawned on me that I had this sudden boost of confidence in me. I felt incredibly happy, and I couldn’t stop smiling, and this feeling continued at the festival where I happily chatted to visitors instead of trying to fade into the background like I would have before.
This latest milestone has really made me realise how proud I am of myself and what I have achieved, not just an incredible weight loss, but also how I am gaining my confidence back.
