I've been a little lax in posting my weight loss progress in the last few weeks. It's been a busy time, what with work and appointments for both weddings. However, it hasn't put me off my weight loss attempt and I'm very happy to say that at my last weigh in I was 10 stone 11.5 lbs!!
I'm willing to bet that I haven't been under 11stone for over 15 years. I was a heavy girl in my late teens, and my last weight loss attempt only took me to 11 stone so I'm pretty pleased with myself. I feel better. My size 14 clothes are even becoming loose, which is a flipping miracle. I never thought I'd see the day where I would be contemplating buying a size 12!
So since I started I have lost 1 stone 6.5lbs. I have reached my goal for wedding number one (which is tomorrow!!). I would like to lose a little more, but I would like to tone up too. I don't anticipate losing anymore by my sisters wedding next week, but I'm hoping the weight loss will continue after the weddings are over.
I've not really been taking any photos to show my weight loss, but I feel it's really showing in my face, so here's a sort of before:

Its lunch time. I'm six hours into my shift and six hours and fifteen minutes away from my annual leave. Not that I'm counting. It's busy. More than busy. It's hectic. My feet ache, my knee is a little swollen, my back hurts. And this is my view:
Not exactly picturesque, but it sure is quiet. This is the "staff room". Technically it's a small kitchen with a couple of plastic chairs. Not exactly a haven away from the madness of the ward, but peaceful enough to have my lunch.
Tomorrow my view will be much better than this. Tomorrow my view will be my family.
