When I first started at the beginning of the year my goal was to lose 70lbs (5 stone) by October. It seemed impossible – I thought I wasn’t going to do it. It just seemed so far for me to see that far ahead.
At first the weight came off really quickly. I lost the first 4 stone in 4 and a half months. It has taken 4 months for the last stone. It has been a struggle at every step. But today I did it – I actually got to the 70lbs down mark.
In recent weeks I have been so close but I have often thought that I was never going to get there. I couldn’t believe it when I got on the scales this morning and I had reached my goal.
I actually got quite emotional and the tears were filling my eyes. I found myself crying at random times – I just couldn’t contain my emotions.
This had been something I had worked all year for and today I actually succeeded. I think when you try so hard for something and eventually you get it I think I couldn’t help but be emotional.
I have been taking comparison photos at every stone I lose. It has been 4 months since the last one.
It was very hard taking the first photo. Now though I am glad I did because it shows me where I have come from and the improvements I have made.
Eventhough my overall goal was to lose 70lbs by October it quickly changed to 100lbs by the end of the year. So I still have a long way to go and a lot more hard work ahead.
