Hope people are feeling as good as I do now. Normally I moan and groan about getting dressed up and going out for meals, even more moans about putting Christmas decs up and even worse clothes shopping.
Now I can't wait to get dressed up even if to go shopping, looking forward to putting my dec's up Monday and have informed my family that money to purchse clothes would be appreciated.
Reason well October 2015 I weighted in at 10st 3lb, size 18 clothes and bmi 28. Today I weigh in at 8st 5lb, bmi 20 and size 10 clothes (well once I finished toning my tummy abit more they will fit more comfy) but tops are fitting nicely. Eaten more but watch my cals, carbs and fat. Hard work at the gym without a trainer. But have hired a trainer now to tone up learn to maintain weight.
I still look at the mirror and see the fat woman but I put the clothes on and push out my mind and see how nice it is on. Even make up and nail polish on. My husband said ' He has not seen me so confident in a very very long time'
Yes it has been a hard and long journey but worth it. Yes some people (my sister and her lovely husband) tried to put me off by some nasty remarks esp when I started to wear size 12 clothes "You look anorexic, need medical help something wrong with your head addicted the gym and are you having an affair". After hearing it for the 4 time my reply was " Not anorexic just healthy, nothing wrong with my head, no affair, it is not my fault your both big and refuse to take advantage of your Dr's offer of free offer of gym/trainer free on the NHS". You don't like tough." They have not commented since.
Hope that others feel this good soon.
