Looking back through the photo album

After writing my first post I thought I would look back and document my weight loss history in photos.  If anything this has really pissed me off and made me so angry! I WAS NEVER FAT TO START WITH!!! I know everyone says that but seriously, before I got sick and when I decided to try Slimming World I didn’t even look overweight! I know I can take a good photo so it’s flattering but still I did not need to start to diet!

Fair enough over the years when I get into remission you can see my weight yo-yo.  This is my weight journey over the last 5/6 years, starting when I first began to diet and until now – Feb 2017.  Looking back I know the triggers for the gains and losses, but definitely i think it’s been the last year I’ve really put the weight on.

**WARNING THERE ARE A LOT OF PHOTOS IN THIS POST AND UNFORTUNATELY QUITE GRAINY!**

LETS LOOK BACK . . . 

please excuse some of the drunken pics

This is the point I always look back on and remember as being really weird.  At this point I have been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and chemo is to start in a couple of weeks yet I both look and feel healthy and fine!

I think it was from about Halloween onward the finally diet of Slimming World which I had gone on from September until a wedding in October went out the window.  But it was over Christmas I knew I had to do something and change my lifestyle!  The picture above was at a friend’s birthday and it was my last blow out and looking back at the pictures of the night my final straw.

The next posts will be on my Lean in 15 and fitness journey so stay tuned!
