Numbers

It's taken about 9 months, 266 days to be (more or less) precise.

I have gone from weighing 16 stone 3lbs to 11 stone 10.5lbs.

Or if you prefer it all in lbs that's 227lbs to 164lbs.

Or 103.18kg to 74.55kg

If you're good at the mental arithmetic you will have worked out that I have lost 62.5lbs altogether (which is 4 stones 5.5lbs, or 28.18kg)

My BMI has gone from 32.6 (anything over 30 is classed as obese) to 23.5

My clothes have gone from a size 16/18 to a size 12/14.
The last time I was that size was about 9 or 10 years ago.

But who cares about the numbers when really a photo can show you all you need to see...

Me in January 2010 and Me in February 2011. 
(The top is the same, the belt in the left is a thing of the past, got too big, ditto the jeans.)

  3. Huzzah! You've done so, so well and I love a good before and after photo. Although I can just say that you in no way, shape or form look big in the first photo. Positively teeny in the second one though! Are you sure you're not smaller than you think you are? I'm a 12-14 at the mo and you look MUCH slimmer than me.

  8. WOOHOO! You've done SO well and it's lovely to see a pic of you too!

    I would have said you were SLIGHTLY overweight in the first pic, not obese. I have a feeling you're quite tall though which is why you look much smaller than a 12/14 now? No-one ever believes I'm a 12 but it's all perspective.

    PS, love how there's a tube of Pringles creeping into the Before pic - as if you need any more encouragement to stay away from them!!

    WELL DONE AGAIN! :) xx

You really didn't/don't look very big - but wow - looking at the after picture is amazing. You worked your TINY booty off!! I'm so impressed with your perseverance, discipline and hard work!
