I wasn’t going to write a victory post, as nothing has changed since I wrote my victory if reaching my goal 12 months ago. On reflection I thought about all the posts I read when I first started out and the inspiration it gave me seeing people not only hitting but maintaining at their goal.
So today sees my Birthday, which I’ve pegged as my anniversary of hitting my weight loss goal. Now the last 12 months has had some tricky weeks but I’ve not gone more than 7lbs above my goal and have returned and drop below on many occasions so I’m happy to say I’m successfully maintaining.
I’d love to say it was easy, but I’ve spent most of the year doing diet (1500 calorie days) to allow for a blow out. I’d much prefer to be hitting my daily allowance every day but I’ve pretty much accepted that my relationship with food will never change but I have the tools to deal with it now so am confident that I’ll never go back.
In the last 12 months I’ve climbed the 3 peaks:
I’ve won player of the season at #foxhollies
and captained a team to win the inaugural MvF St George’s Park tournament. Represented MvF at the Valley (won that too) as well as felt happy with being me.
So where ever you are on your journey, never give up. Hit every challenge face on and for every slip backwards make sure you take a giant leapforwards the very next day.
