Positivity, Weightloss and Achievements..

Hey guys,

I felt the need to share what's happening with me at the moment.

I started my blog Jan 2015 as a way to help me focus on my weightloss & as I'd decided to stop hiding myself because I'm 'fat' I wanted to experiment with make up and embrace my love of all things shiny. 

Diet wise I wasn't the greatest. I was up and down with gaining & losing. I had this constant need to think & talk about food especially the not so great stuff.
If I lost a pound I rewarded myself with food. I mean I deserved it right? 

Then I just stopped. I went right back to eating junk and gained even more weight. I still kept bubblybex3 going just with more of a focus on beauty but even that trickled to a few posts a month at best.

Fast forward to May 2016 and I posted my first YouTube video. This was to push me into kick starting the ole diet again. Whilst it didn't work, I found a love of making videos and trying to get my brain to understand basic editing. Lol

Then July 1st 2016 I just started changing my ways. I'm not even calling it a diet because the way I feel it's just my life now. To be cliche: it's a lifestyle change.
I didn't make a big deal out of it, I just started. Didn't tell anyone or pre-plan or have a last fat meal before its salads and cardboard on Monday. 

This day was a turning point in my life. I accepted I needed to change before I put myself in an early grave and I made the effort to embrace a more positive frame of mind. I have good days and bad days but it's a step up from that dejected person the year before.

Fast forward again to November 1st and I've lost a total of 3st and 3lb!

Not only have I shed 45lb. I've also dropped 3 dress sizes not to mention 2 knicker sizes as well! *less junk in the trunk*
I'm even making more of an effort with my clothing. I mean it's still mostly black but I ain't rocking the baggy sweats and polo's from sports direct anymore!

I can honestly say I don't feel like I'm on a diet. I eat all the time, I'm just eating better foods or a different variation. The main thing I've noticed is I'm not thinking about all the things I'm missing or over stressing about getting weighed. I weigh in once a month. Before I had to weigh in weekly so I could treat myself. Now I don't need to do that.

Another thing I'm proud of is that I'm pushing myself to be more social. I'm attending events, I'm meeting new people and I'm having fun.

I also hit 300+ subscribers on my YouTube channel! For a fat chick with insecurity issues this is bloody exciting to see I can tell you! 

So whilst I'm not posting as much about my weightloss on here, rest assured I'm in a good place right now. I'm enjoying my life, trying new things and losing weight slowly but surely. 

Much Love,

Bex X

  1. Loved reading this post! I'm so happy for you, not just because you've lost over 3 stone but because you're going about it the right way - by overhauling your lifestyle and changing the way you think about food instead of relying on quick fix 'diets'. That's the way to get lasting results!

  3. Amazing! Well done on such a massive loss and feeling generally better. I want to begin a 'lifestyle change', but I'm doing the same, thinking it's okay to go back to bad habits once I do well for a week. You look fab and I'm so glad you're attending events because I get to see you! Tina xx

  5. The work of your diet, you will have started a regime of exercise and the fitness. Keep going! Your body will have responded well to the increased activity and the exercise, so in case you suddenly cease again, Forskolin extract coupon code

  6. 3 stone is amazing work! Congrats! I'm glad to see you're not feeling the need to weigh in weekly or restrict your diet. I know the whole 'lifestyle change' thing comes across to many as cliche, but it really does take that! I turned my life around back in May 2011, and like you I didn't say a word to anyone about it or make a plan, it just started with munching an apple and playing on the Wi Fit one day and then keeping up a few healthy habits!

    Keep up the good work, you're awesome!
