|Taken at the Race for Life at RAF Waddington on 23 May 2010|
My first thought when I saw this photo was 'Boy, do I look fat!' My second thought was 'I did achieve my aim of completing the 5km course in under 1 hour'.
Last January I made the decision that I did not like the way I looked, and when I had to buy a dress in a size 20 I was mortified!!!!!
Since January 2011 I have lost about 2 stone in weight (unfortunately I did put a bit of weight on over Christmas/New Year). I still want to loose a bit more weight and want to achieve that during 2012.
One big difference I have noticed about myself since I started loosing weight is my confidence. Instead of hiding away and trying not to be noticed, I now find myself standing tall and proud. I like the way my body is currently shaped - but want to be a bit slimmer.
This photo is a reminder about how I looked and will help me continue to loose more weight until I reach my goal. I will continue to go to my Weight Watchers Meetings each week and track my progress.
Comment from DH: I still love you
