After Christmas I was horrified that I had reached the weight I had been 3 weeks before my first set of twins was born and realised that at the age of 45 this was becoming a serious health issue. In the first two months of 2016 I managed to lose 5lbs doing my own thing but began to feel demotivated that my weight loss felt very slow. I decided to join our local Slimming World group. In 14 weeks I have lost a further 19lbs and I am really noticing the difference now. So in total I have now lost 24lbs of the 112lbs I aim to lose. In January this seemed an impossible journey but in 5 months I have completed the first 20%. I am delighted and wanted to share this as I am certain that a key factor in this achievement for me is the attendance at a group which is very supportive and stops me lying to myself about what I am and am not doing to improve my health! Good luck everyone. Our journeys might be long, we might all be going at our own speed but with a bit of determination we will get there!
