I haven't posted a weight update for ages as I gained over xmas and have been working it off and then went on a mini-break for my birthday last week. So hopefully I will be fully back in the losing zone in the next couple of weeks.
But even with gaining/maintaining for a bit I am still seeing the benefits of losing nearly 5 stones.
Early last year I booked a holiday to Malta - due to my size I hadn't flown for several years and as I was so worried about the seats I booked club class (I have a seatbelt extender). I also booked all inclusive so I could have a good pig-out and just veg out. But by the time the holiday came around I'd lost 4.5 stones, could walk 10 km. My whole attitude to the holiday had changed - and I didn't need the seatbelt extender!
What me and hubby had wanted to do really was go to Rome but we knew due to my poor mobility (due to weight and lack of exercise) such a holiday would just be an ordeal. So we kept putting it off opting for cruises instead (and then Malta) - no flights, loads of food and minimal walking.
What a difference a year makes! We've just booked Rome Standard flights and I am ready for the days of walking Just spent 3 days walking miles around Birmingham (mostly shopping) so I know I can do Rome. I will need to up my fitness levels a bit more but I have until October to do it.
We all want/need to lose weight for many reasons not just to have a healthy BMI. But when these changes truly improve the quality of your life and enable you to do the things you have always wanted to do you truly know it is worthwhile
Here's to another life changing year
