May 1. I stumbled upon your post today and I have to say your story is indeed inspiring. Through all the ups and downs you had you managed to get on track and make your self feel confident in your body and I combend you on that. In May 0f 2011 I made a change in my life to loose weight and after I saw the first 10 pounds gone I was super happy and now I sit here 2 months later feeling horrible. I did succeed in the beginning and now Im stuck. I had all the motivation I could have but now its gone and I need help. If you were ever stuck at one point what did you do to break out of your plateau. I feel like I have given up. I bought oreos the other day and I just want to let go. Please help.

@katylil, yeah i guess we are aiming for the same goal! Massive good luck vibes to you too :) you'll get there!

@skye8080; Don't worry! And don't beat yourself up over the oreos! You need to change the way you live and what's life like without oreos? Don't be to hard on yourself. You will get depressed otherwise. You have to love who you are inside in order to look better on the outside. You deserve to look good and be healthy right? Don't diet. It's the biggest mistakes. Eat what you like. But do it in such a way that its healthy! Like I won't live off a tiny salad a day, Ill cook a small meal, eat porridge in the morning have some chocolate still! I must say not eating red meat has made such a big change. I know eat chicken and fish and have red meat like once a month. The best thing I've ever heard was; if it comes in a wrapper you're not eating it. Fresh food, cooking and portion control are the way to go. Ive learned so many amazing recipes over the past year and I'd rather eat what I make then go to Mac Donalds or sit in and eat 2 bags of crisps. Fresh food is expensive, but for me giving up smoking gave me more money to spend. I make a lot of shrimp/prawn dishes.. there is hardly any calories. Just be careful with sauces.. like mayo.. you really don't need it, herbs can make things so much spicier. Enjoy food in a whole new way by staying away from anything processed. Exercise 3 times a week... and eat when you do. Your body wants to build up in muscle. Go walking, swimming, jogging, cycling, climb the stairs at home.. make sure you are active for at least 30min every day.

I hope this helps a bit, just be good to yourself mentally and physically and things will fall into place.

So I know I posted this a while ago. Since then I've spend some time in the States. I went to Zion National Park in Utah and we climbed Angels landing. It was a 3hour challenge both physically and mentally. When I was finally at the top I couldn't believe what I had just done, I never would of lasted 10 minutes 2 years ago. So I just want to share this photo, so people know that it is possible if you just keep at it. I have been slacking of since I am back in the UK but I'm determined to lose that final stone and tone up.
