What a difference a year makes!
A year ago tomorrow I was at rock bottom. I didn’t want to go out to a family party because I felt so anxious and my self esteem was the cause. I hated myself and everyone knew it. Even my own mum would say, “why do you hate yourself!?” I know it broke her heart to see her child so miserable about herself. My husband spent his entire birthday trying to find me an outfit. I had cried and been in a total state about that party. Nothing fit me except my work uniform, some tatty old jeans and leggings. We shopped all day though I loathed everything I put on! My husband ended up picking me an outfit.
Here’s me at the party. The only photo where I’m not hiding my tummy away behind my arm, a person or an object. My friend had wanted to see the outfit hubby chose and I told her to delete the photo straight away. I’m glad I kept it though.
I was adamant all night that people would be talking about how much weight I’d put on since my wedding. I felt the world was staring, laughing and pointing.
That night something in me changed. I knew this couldn’t carry on. I searched for slimming world groups online and walked through the doors to my fabulous group a week later, petrified. I had no faith that I’d lose anything. I set a tiny target and didn’t think I’d achieve it. 3 times I moved that target! Here I am today. 364 days later. I don’t hate myself anymore (most of the time anyway - Rome wasn’t built in a day!) Thank you so much to all my fabulous Slimming World family. Despite being at target, I go to group EVERY week. And I do that because the lovely people keep me going and they’re an awesome bunch to be around 😘
