It was never easy and it’s not going to be. Changing yourself in and out is painful and it takes time, you have to work on it every single day.
How do I keep motivated? I watch motivational videos, I surround myself with like minded people, every time when I feel down I spend some time with myself and analyse what’s going on instead of living in denial.
The most important change is how I feel now. I stopped blaming everyone else for my problems and I take action when something goes wrong.
I have lipoedema and have to work really hard to keep things under control. That’s why I really want you to look after your health 🙏🏻. Do something while you still have a choice 😘

The picture on the left was my very first progress photo for my page! This was almost exactly a year ago! I was 5 weeks into my journey, down 30 pounds, weighing in at 221, wearing a size 16 pant and I was feeling pretty good about it! Today I am a year and 3 weeks into my journey, I'm down 96 pounds, weighing in at 155 😱, wearing a size 4 and I feel SO GOOD. The difference that I see in these pictures tho is not just my body size, but the size of my smile. My smile tells you just how big of a transformation I have made not only on the outside but also on the inside. I am a different person. A completely different person. I am so much happier. And you can clearly see that in these photos and that's what a transformation is all about. #transformationtuesday

A little bit of arm/shoulder transformation. Everything was so round before. I never even noticed. It’s crazy to see the difference though. For reference the dress on top is a 20. The bottom dress is a 4/6. #transformationtuesday
Today is the 1st day I've felt depressed since leaving my job. It's not that I'm unhappy with my decision or that I miss my job, but I really miss the people and the daily interactions. When people think about me not having a job they think I'm sitting around all day laying on my couch watching TV which isn't the case, but it does give me more free time to sit around and think. Too much thinking isn't always necessarily a good thing. To make a long story short I was just in one of THOSE moods today.... thinking and rethinking every little thing. Decided it would be good to get out to the gym to clear my mind. Short, but good lower body workout and a much clearer head now.
This is why you take pictures.
I have plateaued on the scale, I’ve been stuck at 197 for 1.5mths 🤷♀️ but guess what... I’m down 5” over the past two weeks and looking at my year over year reminds me that Mr Scale doesn’t mean everything.
I’m actually shocked at the difference in my back and side photos, I mean, I don’t typically have those views in the day to day mirror like the front changes.
1 year. 22 pounds. 38 inches.

CHICAGO BABY - Just as I thought my bad luck in the Ballots was happening again, the email I had been waiting for popped up! Yessssss! I’m going to Chicago Baby! And oh my Gosh what a squad there is! I don’t want to say names and miss anyone but I think these awesome legends @citygirlcat (unsure if I feel comfortable running a marathon without her now 😍) @laurajbrine ( #bestie) @katie_ekins_runs (Super Cute Super Awesome) @dmshockman@shellie0055@_nix26.2@bezjay@jayz_runs_and_cooks@bigcarlrunning@kwmarathoner
So what better way at to celebrate than to go for an 8 Mile Run! Nothing interesting to report apart from threw in a random 7:52 Mile in the middle just for fun! Loved tonight’s run and that puts me just behind @citygirlcat in the battle for bragging rights for @runup2christmas
This moves me onto 61.3km so far in December and Cat is on 68km 😬 Who’s going to be the winner? It’s gonna be tight!
Now time to chill with the Christmas Lights on and look forward to having Mia tomorrow night ❤️❤️❤️ Have a great night people
Much Love ❤️
I fully believe in signs, and tonite I ignored all the rational thoughts in my brain and said yup I’m gonna have a mudslide forget my meal plan. And I obsessively thought about this drink all day. So I mix it up, make it look pretty and start to feel slightly guilty for cheating on my meal plan and drinking on a Tuesday night, but it was made and I was like yum 😋 I jumped in the hot tub super excited and.... the mix was 10000% expired and tasted rotten. Sooooo that was my sign to not drink and focus on my workout instead 😂🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️
