10 reasons to be happy ... I will not give in

Ok Ive been a bit down lately, so I'm going to push my way through this plateau with positive thinking now. I'm going to focus now on all the good things about having lost 6 stone in the last 18 months.....

1) Im much happier. I was always depressed and dreaded going anywhere before. Now I cant wait to get out !! :O)

2) I can walk, and run up stairs without getting out of breath :O)

3) I'm now wearing size 14 jeans as opposed to size 22. It feels good to walk down the street in fashionable clothes and look ok .... :O)

4) I can shop in New Look and all the other lovely fashionable high street shops :O)

5) So many people commenting on my weight loss and it makes me feel fab :O)

6) Ive met so many lovely people through blogging and ww 5+ board :O)

7) I took part in my first ever race for life this year :O)

8) I am much healthier than before. I enjoy eating healthy food and dont have greasy hair or spots anymore :O)

9) I can now go swimming with my girls and not be so embarrassed about how I look :O)

10)Hubby complains about my boney elbows digging him while asleep..... I never used to know where my bones were !! Now I have collar bones, hip bones, proper knees and elbows... :O)

All these reasons to be happy .... so many reasons to not give in and just keep pushing past my plateau... x

  1. Sorry to hear that you've been feeling a bit down of late, hope you're feeling better now.
    What a brilliant list! I can't wait for the day I can write much of the same. You must be so proud. Thanks for the inspiration, I'll keep dreaming about those size 14 jeans and hopefully I'll have a list as great as this one soon!
