4 wks tomorrow and here is how I did... before and after

Started dieting a year ago and have gone from this:-

To this:-

4 stone altogether. Can you believe I am still not 100% happy! Am 5ft 3 and now 9st 11. So am going to tone up as much as I can in the next 4 weeks so I feel really good on the day.

Fingers crossed I will look good!

  • How did you do it? you look fab! well done!xx
  • I joined weight watchers for a couple of months at the end of last year and lost the first stone. Fell of the wagon but managed to maintain that weight for a couple more months. Then I joined weigh loss resources (which is just a calorie counting website with food diary and forum) as I was struggling to get to ww meetings with 2 young kids and their online thing was more expensive. After a month of being on that diet (and sticking to it) I started exercising about 5-6 evenings a week doing aerobics DVDs for an hour a night (Davina Power of 3, Ministry of Sound Pump it Up). By July I was down to 10st 7. I have lost the rest slowly over the last 5 months but haven't been trying as hard so am going for gold in these last 4 weeks so I feel really good on the day (she made my dress very tight on the waist so I can afford to lose it without the dress becoming too big). The exercise made the biggest difference as everything toned up and my cellulite even disappeared. I think you have to really set your mind to it and just make yourself exercise (I actually found I enjoyed it and it stopped me feeling so hungry). I knew I wanted to look good in my wedding dress and that was the biggest incentive for me.

    Good luck all!

  • Wow you look amazing - I dont think you need to lose anymore - you must be so pleased with yourself and you will look stunning on your day!

  • Thanks ladies! It is funny I should be more proud of myself than I am but as you lose the weight you forget you were that big and what that felt like! If you said to me a year ago that I would be 9st 10 and still want to lose more I would have laughed but my hips and thighs are still a size 14 so I will keep going until I am a 12. Annoyingly I seem to have chosen a dress that makes me look slightly bigger than I am too (lots of ruching of the top half which I was told was slimming!). Anyway it may just be bad angles on the pics I have so far but not much I can do now!

    Anyway I always found it so inspirational to see before and after pics of people who had lost weight so hope I can inspire some of you (and inspire myself to finish it off!). Good luck ladies!
