Yes this is from Disneyland again, but I didn't really allow photos to be taken of me usually so this was one of the few I had lol
As you can see, I was getting a bit on the big side.. I was a size 12 for a long time, but I was a more of a "big 14" here, which I know isn't really big by any means, but it had got to the point where I was feeling really unhappy and insecure and knew something had to change, if I continued eating the way I did then, well.. It's not a healthy future is it? Especially considering I'm already at an increased risk of diabetes due to my PCOS, add being overweight to that and it's not great.
Anyway, I was trying on a pair of my old work trousers (which fit me then ^) and hilarity with good feeling ensued:
heehee!! they were huge!!
I could even fit myself plus my dog in them haha!
I did this in just over 3 months too which I think is pretty good, I'm not going to give up on this healthier eating lifestyle too so hopefully I may lose a few more pounds, but if I don't and I maintain this weight, that's cool too. I'm happy and that's all I care about now.
I guess what I want to say is, if you're not happy and you really want to change, anyone can do it if I can, I LOVE my food, like really really love it. You also don't have to do all these crazy fad diets, I'm sure some of them work, but you don't have to put yourself through the depression and anxiety, I did this just by reducing my calorie intake and exercising as much as I could (which wasn't nearly enough but hey ho!) I can still eat a lot of the things I like, just in moderation. I'm not going to say it was easy because it wasn't, but it also could have been a lot harder had I stuck to a fad diet, it doesn't need to be that way.
The sad part though was that essentially none of my clothes fit and had to go on eBay and until they sell, I can not afford any clothes, how sad is that? haha! Oh dear :(
