I am now officially a gold member!! I got my card last night and have been moved onto gold membership. So now as long as my weight stays within five pounds of my goal weight then I will be a gold member forever. Its been 3 weeks since I hit my gold weight and I still feel like I am walking on air! I have posted some progress photos throughout my journey, here here and here. But now I can finally post a proper before and after!
I hate the picture of me in the green dress but it is not the worst one of me out there but its a good indication of where I was at the start. The after photo was taken about 10 minutes ago standing in front of my bedroom mirror. At the weekend it hit me just how far I have come and I stood in front of the mirror in my underwear for a really long time. Had anyone else been at home they may have thought I'd lost my mind.
Its been a long journey but I am sure that I will never look like the before side of this photo ever. Maintenance is going to take some getting used to, being able to be a bit more relaxed and eat a little more is great but different. I am trying not to add back in the junk food and use the extras for good healthy fats. I will admit I have had a few treats since getting to goal but I am well and truly back onto my healthy eating. I will be keeping up this blog, posting more recipes and keeping you all updated on my maintenance. While my weight loss journey may be at an end, I will be a weight watchers for life!
