Hello lovely friends :)
Well today I have been out all day!! Its actually shocking because I never stay out all day! Where have I been?? Good question! Shopping! Oh not food shopping... clothes shopping! I really cannot remember the last time I went into a high street store and bought clothes... well I think that was due to the fact I was much and I mean much much larger.
I have been on a journey and my journey has not finished yet.. When I started blogging this is when I started my journey... I was 23.6 stone in weight (330 pounds). Even to me this is shocking.
How I looked then ....
I really do not recognize myself back then.... I love how I look now. But I still need to get some smaller glasses as I think they are too big for my face.
Yes I have been slowly but steadily trying to lose weight... I have gone down from a UK ladies dress size 32+ to 20/22 today!! It really depends on the style and cut of the clothing but I am in total shock that I now fit into size 20 clothing.
I am pleased I have posted this today ... its a visual aid to see exactly how far I have come. And dont get me wrong here I am not finished!! Oh no!! I still have to lose more weight!!
I have had challenges along the way and set backs but I pick myself back up and carry on. I think this is the thing I am most proud of for myself.. the fact I still care and still want to try to lose weight no matter what is thrown at me. I know the road I am on it a very long one.. my stitching has helped me so much. And yes my stitching has rather taken over my blog but I will never forget what got me here... determination to change and will power to try.
So if your new to my blog and wondering why I post the odd food thing this is why!! I am still actively trying to lose weight!!
Whilst I was out shopping today look what I saw...
I find all of these things 'pretty' and like them. This next item I picked up thinking it was cheese in the supermarket... looked closer.. well look!!
It is actually cheese... but chocolate cheese slices!!! OMG!! What ever next!! Thought it might of brought a smile to some ones face?!
Stitching wise well I got a tonne done last night on my ssshhhhh secret surprise Christmas swap stitch... ha ha not that you can see! And due to being out all day I have not stitched one stitch at all... well not until after posting this blog then I will no doubt get stuck in!
Talking of blogs.. well it was brought to my attention that I am not with Bloglovin... so I signed up!! You can now follow my blog using bloglovin ... wonderful!
Off to do some stitching now....
Smiles until tomorrow....
