The First Six Months In Pictures
April 2006 – our Wedding Day. I had no idea how much I weighed then, and I didn’t really care. Although I was aware that my weight was a problem, I thought that it was such a part of me and my identity that I never really felt motivated to do anything about it. After all, a fat bride is still a bride. I’d managed to trick that man into thinking he wanted to grow old with me and that’s all I really cared about.
One year later – oh, how things had changed! It was getting increasingly obvious that my weight problem was a barrier to many of the fun things I wanted to do. It felt like it was time, so I went along to my first meeting the day before our first wedding anniversary.
Six months in – and it’s going brilliantly. Last Monday’s weigh in saw another loss of 3 and a half pounds, which takes me to a total loss of six stones, two and a half pounds or 86.5lbs or 39.2kg!
I’m now a third of the way through my journey, and it feels wonderful to know that I have the support of so many wonderful people, namely:
- My husband
- My Consultant Saint Frankie …
- … and Tiverton’s other Angel, Katrina
- All my friends at group
- And all my online pals
- Not to mention certain mad women who I don’t see much of nowadays
So cheers! I raise my glass of diet cola and look forward to the next six months.
The journey continues!
