Good old British summer!

The good weather is finally here!!

It was great to get out in the sunshine but I soon realised that I now have no summer clothes that fit me. I’m not where I want to be yet on the weight / BMI front, but it’s a great excuse to buy a few things, even if we do only have  four nice days forecast!

My total weight loss so far is 3 stone 2lbs.


I was surprised to notice over the weekend how well I’m dealing with the heat now. I feel so much better, I’m not so sweaty and uncomfortable and I don’t need to be next to a fan all the time.

I’ve been out with friends quite a few times over the past couple of weeks for lunch and dinner. I’m getting really good at making healthy food choices when eating out and have also noticed that I’m choosing things off the menu that I wouldn’t normally eat (pre-sleeve) and I am really enjoying them. I’ve broadened my horizons on the food front without even realising it.

I’m finding life so much easier all round now and feeling so much happier with myself.

So if anybody reading my diary can relate to what I have written and is still thinking about having the sleeve procedure, my advice would be go for it!

SIZE 12!

It’s been quite a weekend and I’m very happy to report that my weight loss is still going well!

Just less than eighteen weeks ago, I was wearing size 22 clothes. I bought a new pair of trousers on Saturday……size 12!

I can’t even begin to tell you how fabulous that feels!

I kept checking the label to see if there was a mistake. When I see them on the hanger in my wardrobe, I can’t believe that those tiny trousers actually fit me!

I noticed something else this weekend too.

I was soaking in the bath the other night       and it suddenly dawned on me. I now have so much more room in the tub! I can swish around enjoying the bubbles and it’s so much easier to get in and out!

Now I know that this is probably a little too much information, but it’s these little everyday things (usually not spoken about) that make a difference.

These little changes (along with the not so little ones) all add up to a better, healthier, happier new me!
