I’ve lost 149 pounds and I’m 54!

I’ve dropped from 22½ stone, morbidly obese, to under 12 stone. I’ve gone from FAT to Fantastic.

In my 50s, I could have accepted being fat as who I was, using my age, and the menopause as an excuse. As a psychologist I’ve researched what worked and set on the long term goal to lose over 10½ stone in weight.

I’ve changed what I ate, became more active and most importantly changed how I thought.

Over the years I’ve lost some weight, gone off a diet and put the weight back on and more. In October 2009 I decided to do something different. 9 months on I’d lost 74lb, (124lb since my biggest) become fit and healthy and continued the journey. By December 2011 I crashed through the 12 stone barrier. I now can’t stop smiling I’m so happy.

Waking up this morning I smile. Twenty four brand new hours are before me. I vow to life fully in each moment and look at all beings with eyes of compassion – Thich Nhat Hanh
