I have not done a Thinking Slimmer update for a while and although I haven’t quite hit my target weight of 140lbs by my 40th birthday (and Britmums), I am almost there and pleased with my progress so far.
I have noticed a real difference in my eating habits and although I do occasionally indulge in a Jaffa cake or Jammy ring biscuit, the urge to eat a whole packet has gone.
I also stop eating when I am full, whereas before I would carry on as I hate waste and because of this my portions are getting smaller too.
My diastasis recti is probably my biggest frustration because my MUTU system exercising haven’t been consistent as I really struggle for time. I have reduced the gap from 4 fingers to 2.5 so it is working, but very slowly.
My starting measurements were:
12 weeks on:
I am really pleased that I have lost 4″ off my tummy and waist but sadly my overall shape hasn’t changed much. All my old clothes are hanging off me and I am forever hitching my trousers up, but sadly that elusive size 12 is still too tight…….I think I need a size 13!!
I am determined to keep it up though as people are starting to notice how much weight I have lost now and commenting which has given me an added push!
