This is me 12 months apart.
In the photo on the left in September 2018 following an incredibly stressful six months, I see a sad, bloated overweight woman. and the one on the right, taken in September 2019, I see a healthy, slimmer, happy woman.
What a difference a year makes!
Every time I look at this photo I feel embarrassed. But I keep posting it anyway. Why?
Because it makes me realise how far I've come, and it makes me realise how I don't want to look and be...
I have never taken before shots and put them side by side before. Yes, I've looked at different photographs of myself taken over the years and thought... OMG, look how fat I am there! Or sometimes I've said... Oh, my face looks a little slimmer there, I must have been on a diet. The upshot, I highly recommend taking your before photographs because it's so motivating.
It was something I avoided like crazy. There was no way in hell I wanted to take before shots, but I took them anyway. I took them standing in front of the mirror in my underwear (no, you're not seeing those ones!!!) and in my walking gear too (you'll see these in time).
So, how did I lose the weight?
By reconnecting with a way I'd lost weight many, many years ago, learning more from various online resources, and working with a counsellor to address things that have been going on for me over the last 18 months. If you're keen to try it, make sure you download my FREE e-Book & Planner.

And finally, come and join my Facebook group for ideas, inspiration and support.
I'm now fitter, healthier and weigh almost 12kg less than I did a year ago. And, I still have another 5-10kg to go.
Have a great week!
