It has been an emotional week for me, if you watch my YouTube videos you will know that my other half is recovering from surgery and I was finding being on plan difficult but somewhere in the mist of the dark cloud that was over me I found strength to fight through it, get back on plan and work my butt off (literally :’) )
Wait for it… it lead me to 4.5lb loss giving me my 4 stone award with slimming world and 6 stone award with My Fitness Pal in 28 weeks! One thing I do want to make clear, yes I did lose a lot of weight quickly and yes I did it healthily but it isn’t a race! I don’t want anyone reading this feeling disheartened or compare journey’s. I did at the start and man, was tough but what I do now is I compare myself to myself yesterday. So if I didn’t eat properly or skipped a meal or workout then I would make sure I didn’t do that again. I am now in competition with yesterday’s Julie and I tell you honestly I am not perfect, I do things wrong, I am not always on plan and there are days I don’t drink enough water. We can only do better than yesterday and that is enough!
Please enjoy your journey, take it each day as it comes, do not think about the end game, focus on the now and the rest will follow!
I am excited to show you the gift my hubby bought me for hitting this milestone and it will make cooking so much easier, more recipes coming soon.
Let me know how you are getting on and I hope you have a fantastic week ahead.
