    11 Stones lighter in 12 Months

    My Journey Began on 11th July 2007 following the birth of my beautiful daughter, at the time I weighed in at just over 20 Stones and looking back now I don’t regret anything as it has made me who I am today.

    I remember looking down and imagining my body would simply deflate and go back to 14 stones, the weight I was before conception, and when that obviously didn’t happen I knew instantly it was time to change and that’s exactly what I set out to do.

    For as long as I can remember I have struggled with my weight. I have always loved my food but most of all snacking in-between meals on sweets chocolate and most of all crisps have always been my downfall. My parents used to try and control what I ate as they could obviously see the impact it could have on my later life and of course at the time I couldn’t see it and never considered that one day I would be so depressed with my appearance.

    There were times were I would go to the shop and sneak into the cupboards to find what I could to get rid of the cravings I had, always having the urge to splurge I wouldn’t stop, having no self control.

    Throughout School I was always known as the token fat kid and was often called Hayley the hippo but this never bothered me I just got used to it, that’s who I was and I thought I couldn’t change so I grew a thick skin but deep down it hurt all the same. As I started getting older and was approaching high school it started to bother me more and more and as my body grew bigger in every direction I just felt I had gone too far and would never be able to change my body- it was too late so I carried on and on, increasing what I ate without satisfying my hunger.
    The time came when it was a struggle to get uniform to fit me and I always remember dreading P.E lessons knowing I had to get changed in front of people knowing the stares, glances whispering and prodding was coming. As time went on it began to affect the way I was the clothes I wore and the confidence I once had regardless of my appearance.

    I often found myself looking at other people around me and feeling really out of place. When I reached the age of 15 I started my relationship with my long term partner and of course as couples do we began to eat out have takeaways and generally comfort eat and before I knew it I ballooned to the biggest I had ever been, I was so self conscious I thought everyone was looking at me wherever I went at this point I was a size 18 and so desperately unhappy.

     

    Making the decision to join the Gym I felt it would inspire me to control my weight and making myself feel that bit better, with that I began trying all sorts of different Diets and plans. The gym became part of my routine and I really enjoyed it. I managed to lose around 2 stone which made me feel a lot more confident as I dropped to a size 14 even though I still knew I had a long way to go and was still around 14st, which was the lightest I had been for a long time.

    It wasn’t long after that I discovered I was pregnant! In the back of my mind the realisation that the weight I lost would be put back on- but it would be baby weight and would be off again in 9 Months it never once crossed my mind how much my body was going to change. I found myself eating lot more then I usually did and looking back it was out of greed because I thought eating what wanted would make little difference and my body would just spring back into shape. Seeing so many new mums looking great an expected the same would be for me.

    My 24 week check up arrived with the midwife , standing on the scales and I realised I was 17st! My Stomach dropped- I was back to square one but was determined to enjoy what time I had left of eating what I wanted and being pregnant , Knowing the moment I had my daughter I was going to be thin, or so I thought….

    So from that day on I carried on eating takeaways crisp sweets chocolate and by the end of my pregnancy was massively overweight. The day came when I had my daughter and as soon as I could I weighed myself for what would be the last time as I started my new journey… the scales topped 19.7 Stone meaning pre birth weight of 21 Stone! My heart broke but now I knew what I had to do.

     

    Being a new mum I hardly ever had time to train so began thinking of my own diet as the diets I had tried before really didn’t work for me or was a short term solution with the weight yo-yoing.

    Six weeks after having my daughter I got the courage to join the gym again and this time I was determined to get the body I have always wished for but never felt it was achievable, this truly was the turning point in my life I was ready to change and my mindset supported my vision- wanting to be an active Mum and not be afraid of being pointed at or feel people was whispering and looking at me all the time enough was enough and I came to the conclusion if I want it I will have it.

    My way of life changed and I decided I wasn’t on a diet I began to see it as my way of life, something I think is very important as you begin your journey. It soon occurred to me that just the word Diet made me feel restricted, “I can’t do this, I’m on a Diet” I came up with my own plans which focused on Carbohydrate control not calorie control. And coming up with simple alternatives I soon found I was making a big difference.

    Losing weight month after month until I hit 14 stones again, but by then I had perfected my own lifestyle plans and 12 months on I had lost 11 stones…………..Half of my body weight using my own regime …I am currently 9st 4 and couldn’t be happier!

    Why have I created this site?

    My weight loss has inspired me to inspire others my vision of helping others has become my passion.

    Throughout my journey I had nobody to draw inspiration from who had lost weight like this naturally and I soon realised I wanted to dedicate my time to helping others because I know what it’s like to hit the “Wall” be so depressed that I didn’t want to go out and just not know where to start, I knew when the time was right I would reach out how I could.

    One of the most incredible feelings is seeing old School friends who walk past me in the street and when I say “Hello” they don’t recognise me, it’s an amassing feeling and one I want to help you achieve.
