This week has been the first week this year that I've gained weight rather than lost, so to counteract that disappointing result with some positivity I thought I'd share a before and after photo to celebrate how far I've come already thanks to this community!
On the left is a not particularly flattering photo of me taken in Scotland over Christmas (when I weighed around 90kg), and on the right is a photo taken of me in the HealthUnlocked office last week, wearing a cardigan I borrowed from Vesa 😊. My last few weigh-ins have been around 77-78kg, so getting pretty close to my target of 73-75kg.
Thank you to everyone who has given me support and advice over the past weeks, especially to the brilliant admins and event hosts who work so tirelessly to make this community as good as it is. It's been great not only to lose weight but also to get first hand experience of how HealthUnlocked is used in ways we programmers never envisaged - the weekly weigh-ins being my favourite example. Such a great way to keep motivation! I look forward to shedding those last few kilograms and then sticking around with you all as a maintainer 😊.
Onwards and downwards!
