I've lost 3st 7lbs49lbs22.2kg.
I was on holiday in Salou last October 2018. I've always said my weight never stopped me doing anything, only it did. I love roller coasters and we went to Portaventura theme park and was getting on a roller coaster when there was a delay because they couldn't do the bar up over my stomach.
They did manage to wedge it shut but I didn't feel safe and asked to get off. My husband stayed on. Now this is what changed everything...when he got off I asked if he enjoyed it and he said "it wasn't the same without you, I missed you". That was it for me, it really upset me that I made him feel like that. My weight has never bothered him.
A friend mentioned she was using a calorie counting App so I looked on the App Store and picked Nutracheck to try.
I've always been a big girl really. I can't remember ever being small, so my weight has always been a problem.
I've found this the easiest way to lose weight. I've done Weight Watchers - I lost 2st28lbs12.7kg then put it all back on and more. I've found this App super easy to use. The biggest change I've made is portion size - I still eat all the food I love just less of it, as this App teaches you what is in the food you're eating. I've not found it hard or difficult - if I go out for a meal I use my exercise calories so I either still lose weight or stay the same.
I feel so much better now. I don't get out of breath going up the stairs, I go to the gym now and generally feel so much fitter.
My milestone was being able to get into a size 18. I know that's still big for some people but that's 2 sizes down for me.
Sara has now set a new target - watch this space!
