I've done it, I've reached my first goal...half a stone lost! Well, 8lbs if I'm going to be precise.
And I'd quite like to just sit and take a moment to be proud of myself. It's taken me 6 weeks to get here, and it hasn't been easy, but it's been the most motivated I've been on any diet, and I'm sticking at it! I think firstly, the myfitnesspal app has been a BIG help, it's really kept me on track, usually I'd think that little biscuit here, and a slice of cake there wouldn't matter, but when you're actually tracking the calories in front of you, it definitely makes you think twice.
On top of that I've had good motivation from family, friends and you lovely lot on Twitter. So big thanks to those of you who have been keeping me going.
They say it takes 4 weeks for you to notice you're body changing, and 8 weeks for your friends and family to notice. I've definitely noticed a change, and I'm feeling more confident in myself. And at week 6, the boy and my mum have said they can tell I've lost weight...but they have to say that, don't they?!
So now it's a case of setting my next goal...I'm still aiming to work on the fitness...at some point. I went for a walk on Sunday, that's a start, right? If any of you can suggest some good ways to help me start my fitness journey I'd really appreciate it, I HATE running with a passion, well in fact, I hate most exercise, but I know I have to start somewhere, so any youtube vids or fitness plans you can send my way, would be much appreciated!
And if anyone else is on a weight loss/fitness journey, I'd love to hear how you're getting on....
