Week 5 update

1626414347_3a498950-c78e-4c3e-84e0-7391826a72ec.jpegStrange feeling this week . Lost roughly 6 pounds again. Absolutely gutted I just missed my goal of the first number starting with a 2 . Started my weight loss journey 6 as a bit weeks ago and have lost 2 stone and 7 pounds so far . So I am over the moon about that . The competitor in me however is gutted to miss out by half a pound . But I will get there next week . Thanks as always for all the support .

Week 6 update .

First goal hit to have the first number start with a 2 . Think I’ve probably lost a bit more than this but the heat has made everything so swollen . But this is just the start . It needs to continue . Birthday and a week off this week so if I can maintain this weight and maybe lose 2 or 3 pounds this week I will be extremely happy . But I’ll not be going too mad !! 


As most people who know me will know, I have always struggled with my weight but lockdown ( and a lack of effort from myself ) have caused this to increase significantly. As of today I weigh 32 stone and 7 pounds. The reason I am choosing to do this for charity is two fold. Firstly I need to lose the weight for obvious reasons as I am only 28 and need to do something soon. Secondly, my mother tragically passed away in February of this year and I promised her that I would lose weight as she always worried about it. I believe that raising money for a good cause is one of the best ways to motivate myself to do this. We all know someone who has lost someone to the terrible illness that is cancer, and Marie Curie were fantastic at the end of my Mother's life so I want to give something back whilst fulfilling my promise to my Mum. The aim will be to lose 1 stone per month until I get down to 20 stone this time next year and reassess my goals from there. If anyone should happen to be in my company for this period, then do not offer me a biscuit!

I will upload various weigh ins and videos of me in rocky style training montages in due course

Thank you to all who donate
