So here I am. All 21 stone and a half of me! Size 22, BMI 45 - how have I done this to myself ? The answer is quite easily. A takeaway here a takeaway there , having a gossip with my friends or a cosy night in with hubs over an Indian (creamy korma , naturally😂) a pack of biscuits shared in work with my two work besties when the office gets a bit stressful , a glass of wine here and there in the kitchen whilst cooking a delicious BIG meal, it’s been a gradual slow weight gain, since I was a young teenager really. Do I hate my reflection ? Absolutely not! Does my weight hold me back ? Absolutely not! I just want to live a longer, healthier life and I know that this year , 2018, will be MY year! Please don’t hate yourself or your reflection today - you won’t lose weight in a day - learn to love yourself along your whole journey! Signing off for now as I’m having a little escape at a spa break for the night, only 10 mins down the road but we’re having a lovely relaxing over indulgent time so far! PRE OP DIET STARTS IN 1 DAY! eeeek! #gas#gastricbypassuk #gastricbypassuk #gastricbypasslife#gas#gastricbypasssurgery#gas#gastricbanda> #gastricband #gastricbandlife#gastricsleevesurgery #gastricbypasssurgery #gastricsleevecrew#gastricsleevecommunity#gastricsleevejourney#thehospitalgroup#dolanparkhospital
Happy #transformationtuesday I may or may not be over served at the bar in both photos... 🤣🤣🤣 Have a great day everyone!!
Let’s talk about comfort food! Today in Michigan it was 15* and snowing. What a great day for meat and potatoes! So I used @skinnytaste recipe for Salisbury steak meatballs and made it with cauliflower “mashed potatoes” let’s say this was amazing!! All the comfort and way less guilt! Amazing how when you change your eating habits you learn to swap for a healthier version and still get all the flavor and satisfaction! Check out these amazing stats on the caulimash!
Going to enjoy this pick me up! The 3:00pm wall just hit at work!!
Happy #facetofacefriday everyone, hope you all have a great weekend! Also, I now have a neck and no double chin... 🤣🤣🤣
It’s hard to believe that four days ago, it was so cold outside that I couldn’t go for a walk for fear of frostbite. (Wind chills in the negative teens F.) Today, it’s almost 50 F and I was able to thoroughly enjoy my walk in naught but a light flannel shirt. It’s supposed to be even warmer tomorrow!
For today’s #throwbackthursday I was once on the sidelines for a Detroit Lions game for their warm ups! At the time, I was heavier than every single player on the team... Also, I took selfies purposely cutting out my big ass 2nd chin/neck... Have a great day everyone!

It is virtually impossible to take a good picture of this cat, but I keep trying. Allie dropped him off a few minutes ago, and he stayed right where she put him - wrapped up in my arms. I love this cuddly little guy especially on this crazy cold day when the temp is in the single digits and very windy.
PS. Joe asked me not to go out on my walk today, so I did 40 minutes on the elliptical machine that’s been hitherto gathering dust in our basement.
