So, hopefully a little inspiration for you all – and to put the story of my fitness and weight loss journey into perspective for those of you who don’t know me. Above are three photos of me from approx 2008-2010 and then the bottom right taken two weeks ago – nearly three stone lighter, 4 dress sizes smaller and most importantly HAPPY with myself…. I literally cringe when I see these pictures of my double chin, muffin top, flabby arms….. and am so sad that I let myself get like this.
I thought I’d share a real throwback with you all – and that I’ve not always been slim and healthy… And that if anyone can empathise with weight loss and fitness struggles, it’s me.
The two photos on the left are from 2008 and 2009 and show me around two stone heavier than I am now, over three dress sizes bigger, but most of all unhappy and uncomfortable. I’d always pick long tops to skim over my “muffin top” and wore the loosest trousers I could to hide my “thunder thighs”. I had been through a traumatic break up and sought comfort in food – in these days eating a tub of ice cream in one evening was not unusual.
