Hold the front page... 50-something woman loses 60lbs! (With pic to prove it!)
Tuesday, June 07, 2016
One of the reasons I wanted to share this image - apart from chums asking me to - is because so often I read about women who, like me, are in their 50s, resigning themselves to being a certain way, simply because of their age.
If this is you, just stop it right now!
Age is nothing more than a number. And I'm not alone in believing this. I know plenty of women the same age as me, and older, who have successfully taken control of their weight and their health, with hugely positive outcomes.
I have to be honest, and say that I really didn't realise how fat I'd become when I was living in south Asia.
(Please forgive my stupid face - the bird was digging his claws in my arm!)
I'd love to be able to say that the image from April '14 was my wake-up call but it wasn't. I was still in denial right up until the end of 2014, when I finally made up my mind to get my butt into gear, starting in the January.
I'm really pleased with my progress so far, and looking at these images definitely spurs me on to keep going. I'm not resting on my laurels, however; I still have a lot of room for improvement.
Onward and slimward!
Without wishing to sound vain, I hope that by posting these images, someone else will be spurred on as well.
