June last year I remember lying awake in bed, worrying about my weight and how I let it all get on top of me. I remember picking up my phone and browsing online for a while for weight loss tips and healthy recipes.
I don't know how, but I stumbled across HealthUnlocked. It was a Sunday evening and I vowed the next day, would be the day I begun. I weighed in around 13 and a half stone.
9 months down the line I am down 11lbs. I know its not much, but there have been struggles along the way. Loss of family members, moving house, losing weight and then putting it all back on.
If it wasn't for this community, I don't think I would have stuck it out. People help so much and they don't even know it. Even if it is just that I have read someone else's story, it helps so much and I am feeling more determined than ever.
I got myself back into gear 3 weeks ago and have already lost 5lbs. It feels good and I just wanted to share. We all have bumps along the way but we must keep at it!
I have the house to myself tonight until about 7 and am actually looking forward to doing some exercise!
Don't give up!
