fat loss

It’s good to talk….

So todays assignment, to take inspiration from a previously followed/ read post.

So here goes, and i hope i don’t lose any of you who might not relate to this one.

I am currently half way through a little project i like to lovingly call ‘Operation who am i?’ (not really but sounds good hey?!)

A few years ago i got a wake up call.

I have been getting bigger and bigger since a traumatic incident in my early 20’s, one i am not going to go into now, and i finally saw some pictures and realised i didn’t recognise myself.

this one in particlar

this is me and my mum, at her house on the day of my sisters wedding.

i cried, and still do when i see it. it’s hideous.

i had not long been to the hospital and found out that i couldn’t have children, well until i lost around 12 stone! to put that in perspective that is more than my sister weighs, i essentially needed to lose a whole person!

i was devastated, i had been kidding myself about my weight and size for such a long time but here it was for everyone, well mostly me to see.

how could i have been so blind?

this was 3 years ago. i have now lost around half what is needed. and that sadly was the easy part.

i have recently lost my motivation for why i started and seriously need to find my mojo.

have any one seen it?

but there is a bright side, because as you know i am not a negative Nelly.

i have lost half my goal, i am so much fitter and healthier then i was.

i am going to give myself sometime at the weekend to just sit down and map out the next part of my plan.

so there it is!

this blog is not purely focussed on my weightless journey because i am so much more then that but i will update at various milestones.

hope i didn’t lose to many of my new readers there

Day 6 and the final weigh in

So we’ve made it through to the last full day on camp. And if you were thinking that the team would start to take it easy on us  ……… you’d be wrong.
Our last ever morning cardio was the dreaded dune run, all I could remember from last time was that the more I ran the more sand I acquired.  And this was no different. But I managed to make it round 6 times which was great for me. Hardest part is the ‘run’ ( more like scramble) up the dune!
After 1/2 hour we were back to base for breakfast and then we had our 1-2-1’s with the trainers,  a little private time to reflect on way we’d done, and set out a plan for the future.  This is a great opportunity to really pick their brains and get some personal trainer time.

The straight into combo circuits, another tough session but we all gave it the final push!

After lunch it was our last set of team sports,  a ‘friendly’ came of Bucketball,  archery and volleyball. Sadly archery got rained of part way through but after a quick break we were straight back out.

Then final abs blast.  It seemed unbelievable that it had all ended again, the week just flew by.

So now I guess it’s what you’d all been waiting for the results.

So a final but of background.
My last visit to camp I was 2 1/2 stone heavier and i managed to lose 15 lbs and 52cm in the week.
Mindful that i was now lighter and fitter I was unsure what to expect………

Stepping on fhe scales i was so nercoid bur then Caroline told me she was shocked and my heart sank had i actaully put weught on! No the scores were in, i was now 18 lbs lighter and another 40cm smaller. That’s right 18 lbs in 6 days, I couldn’t believe it. All my hard work, sweat and aching muscles had all been worth it. I was now also the camps official biggest female loser on a 7 day camp and I still had the largest cm lost from previous camps.

I’m not sure the team will ever know how truly grateful I am to them but I will show them by carrying on and getting to my goal
