Two stone weight loss

Two stone weight loss

 

Well this is something I never thought I’d see, I never thought I would ever get this far on my weight loss journey but I have made it, I am here, I am now at my two stone weight loss and it feels bloody awesome. It took me longer than planned but hey I am here and that is all I should worry about, it is not a race and they say “slow and steady wins the race”

I wont lie not every week has been a good week, there has been the odd week where I have had a gain, nothing big but I did put on or even maintained and stayed the same, not every week can be a perfect week now can it, what can I say this girl loves chocolates and the odd biscuit now and then.

My weight loss journey started back on the 8th of October last year when I was not feeling happy with my appearance and I knew I was over weight so I decided it was time to do something about it before it caused any health problems. My goal is to loose minimum of five stone and I am nearly half way there now, so close but still yet so far but I will get there eventually.

I have recently made some changes to help me with my weight loss journey, I have recently joined a gym, I really did not want to add to our monthly out goings but I knew I would need help with exercising as I don’t have any exercise equipment at home so I took out a gym membership.

I have been attending keep fit classes such as:

Zumba

20/20/20

Hi/Lo

Leg’s Bum’s and Tums

Synrgy

I have also been using the swimming pool and taken advantage of the fab exercise equipment on offer in the gym. Going to the gym with friends is rather fun, we have been challenging each other and we also push each other to do that bit more. What I have been finding difficult is time to go to the gym, I work and some nights I don’t finish until late, but when I am able to get there to use the equipment I love it and really feel great after a good work out….Even if I am knackered!

What we are looking into getting is some exercise equipment at home so I can then look into not needing the out lay of the gym membership, I can then exercise at home with out the rushing about after work to get to the gym, this would be a better and a more relaxed approach to exercise for me after a day at work.

All in all I am enjoying loosing weight and noticing my body/health changes.

    Well done.
    Doesn’t matter how long it takes, the slower it comes off the longer it stays off.
    Just remember how long it takes to gain the pounds – well it takes even longer for them to disappear

    Two stone is an amazing effort, well done! And losing it slowly is the healthiest way to do it as it’ll stay off. You should be proud – and the satisfied feeling after exercise is brilliant, even if you do feel knackered!
