I wanted to share these two photos with you as to be honest I am really pleased with myself! I hit my second major target at Weight Watchers this week and got my 10% keyring, which means I have lost 10% of my starting bodyweight, yay! I've lost over a stone and a half now since January, and while I would love it to be faster, it's been steadily coming off which suits me.
I tend to wear dresses most of the time and a lot of the stretchier ones have stayed fitting me throughout my weight gain and loss so it's sometimes hard to actually SEE the weight loss. All I've really noticed in myself is that my watch is looser, but there are still some clothes that don't fit me yet. I went back through my personal blog on the hunt for a 'Before' picture. I thought this pic was okay at the time but I can really see the difference now, especially in my face.
It's not just a numbers game though - I am eating a lot better, far less processed food plus I have more energy and just generally feel better in myself. As much as it's easy to focus on the scales going down I have been trying to make better choices and think about this as a lifestyle change, not as a diet.
I'd like to lose at least another stone but I'm taking each day as it comes. Focusing on making yummy, healthy food and trying to be active where I can is helping me slip into good habits, and for the first time in a long time, I feel like I can keep them up.
