It’s been a little over two weeks since I’ve last spoken to you all in this blog series.
The truth is that I lost a lot of confidence over these last few weeks and have been trying to find my way back to full confidence and fighting fit again.
The burning question that i know that you all want the answer to is what has happened with the weight loss? The answer is not much happened until today when I lost another pound. 😁
My weight has not gone back up but it did plateau for a little while, which was not fun! I was crabby and moody despite the fact that I knew that this was going to happen. It does not stop it hurting and winding me up knowing the effort and the heart that is going into this.
The warmth and the heat has not helped much with giving me the enthusiasm to continue or to add more exercise in to the regime or to carry on eating more healthily than I have been.
I’ll admit I did have an ice cream or two- but it was worth it!
After a rough few weeks and feeling down with the lack of improvement and other things in the last few days, I had a breakthrough. I decided to stop letting anxiety and fear rule my life, and to just be me.
Inside the version of me that I am now is a slimmer, brighter star that just needs a chance to shine, which is precisely what I am going to do.
This time next year- I will be a shining star 🌟
The first step on the road to this new me was buying some new summer dresses. Usually I would stay well away from the dresses section in any shop but this time I was ready to face the challenge.
I picked up two lovely dresses from George at ASDA, but was I ready to wear them out of the house? The answer was YES! Two days after I bought them, I was out of the house wearing one. Before this weight loss commitment, these dresses would have stayed in the back of the wardrobe for years, but this time I was ready for it!
Low confidence immediately turned to high confidence with a big smile after lovely comments from Peter and some reassurance and kind comments from my best friend lead to me leaving the house in it!
That was it! That was the push that I needed. The confidence was back and the mojo I had previous lost was restored, and I think that is what led to this weeks weight loss.
I will update you next week on the progress or lack of it!
Once again, thank you for the kind words of support and enthusiasm! ❤️😁 it really does mean the world to me.

You look lovely! Fabulous dress. Keep going! Much love! xx
On your journey with you honey. Mostly sticking to 14 units a week on alcohol and cutting out most snacks. Not all! Of course the odd ice cream in this weather lifts the mood 🙂 Cutting things in half whereas once I would have had the whole thing is also really helping me.
Losing a pound a week and like you, into new dresses (and ones that were old friends not worn for a while). Which feels amazing! Keep going – this time next year we will both be sylphlike and divas in our fetching floral frocks
