When thinking about my slimming journey, I can talk about weightloss: before and during but I’m still not at the ‘after’ stage just yet! However it’s good to get some inspiration to continue – God knows it can be hard at times, so I wanted to create a blog post showing where I was and where I am now so that I’ll have something to link to when I do my ‘After’ shot!
Notice that I said ‘when’. Getting to my goal weight isn’t a case of ‘if’, it’s a case of ‘when’. I’m not the speediest slimmer but I am a slow and steady wins the race kind of girl. I believe that if you keep chipping away that eventually you will have a masterpiece. I’m still working on mine!
So here I was at my biggest – Before: (I actually had to slim down to get into this dress but I don’t have photographic evidence of when I was two sizes bigger than this. Funnily enough I wanted to avoid cameras!)
As for ‘After’ – watch this space! You might be watching for a while though! Like I said, I’m not the fastest! One thing that this slimming lark has taught me though is that I’m resilient and determined. I wouldn’t have thought that before necessarily. If someone asked me to list my qualities I’d have said something like ‘positive’ or ‘inclusive’. Not determined, but I have a core of steel running through me. There are times when I don’t feel it – all I feel are the wobbly bits but it is there.
If you are stuggling with slimming, believe me, I totally know that fight. It’s tough but we will get there in the end. Have a look at my YouTube channel for some inspiration for slimming recipes and motivations, and remember to keep chipping away at your masterpiece!
