I'm there!

I have been on a weight loss journey since August 2016. After beginning with a BMI of 32.8 in the obese range, I now have a BMI of 23.9 in the healthy range. A grand total of 4 stone 8 and a half pounds. I started running around 10 weeks ago and I am becoming toned and fit I can see the beginnings of a defined tummy! I never thought I could but I can and I did. I'm chuffed to bits!

I never thought I would be a runner either. Now I love it. I also do a Zumba class and ride my horse so am a bit of a fitness freak nowadays. Once the weight goes the energy levels rise. It's a lifestyle change, not a diet. Never going back!

I didn't do the 12 week plan. I did slimming world but actually it's all just premised on healthy eating. I rarely eat any processed, I home cook quick meals and snack on good stuff. I also think the exercise is contributing. I feel fab!
