The little things....

Hello everyone,

Can you believe it's nearly March already? Geez I sound old! Haha. I'm so excited for March 1st to hit because I'm hoping that weigh in will bring me to a total loss of 5 stone!!! So fingers and toes crossed!!

the difference losing weight makes

Anyway for those who've lost weight you'll know about those little moments where you really notice the changes. It can be something really simple but boy does it make you smile and feel proud of how well you're doing!

Today I thought I'd share my proud little moments so far on my weightloss journey.

  • at my biggest if I turned in the shower I'd scrape my bum across the doors. Now I can bop around like a crazy woman and don't even touch the doors!

  • my towel fits around me! Plus I have some extra so I'm like those actresses who have towel scenes with loads to spare ;)

  • I fit into shoes that I couldn't get my big toe in before! Bring on the heels!

  • I can see more of my eyes now. Before my fat kinda swallowed them up especially with my cheeks being so erm full. Haha

  • I'm using way less foundation!

  • on the same face theme I don't have to 'contour' as many chins as I used to do. Bex and her 5 chins are no more ;)

  • the cinema seats are way more comfortable!! No more squeezing my hips into those buggers! Now I can wiggle around like a toddler on a sugar high! 

  • I tried on some of my mums skinny jeans and they not only fit but were baggy in places! Move over Kendall...

  • I'm starting to see collarbones!! Woohoo!

  • The best thing is seeing the differences in my videos. I can not only see the physical changes but the confidence I have a gained is amazing.

I'm so excited to see what other changes I can see as I lose even more weight! For now I'm going to continue to booty shake in the shower without the fear I'll get wedged in! Lolz

Much Love,

Bex X

February weigh in...

Hey guys,

Sooo as per my goals for 2017 I'm on the ball with this update...lolz

Ha my lack of organisation aside I thought I'd check in with Feb 1st's weigh in and all that jazz. So drum roll please...I lost 8lb! Woohoo!!!

January was a bit of a meh month. Between feeling a bit shitty and eating way more snacks than I needed to I was praying I'd lose something so to see an 8lb loss really cheered me up.
This brings my total loss to 62lb or 4 stone 6lb! Whilst this isn't the fastest diet I've ever done, I'm beyond happy with how it's going. I'm happy (most of the time), not hungry and I'm losing weight slowly but surely.
You can see the difference in the picture below. Same hair style, same dress and even the same lipstick...major weight change ;)

The exercise is still a work in progress. Although if mentally thinking about exercising counts then I'm practically an Olympic athlete! Haha 

My blog has turned a bit stagnant I'm not going to lie. I just feel like I don't have much to say anymore and who wants to read the wafflings of an insecure fat chick who's approaching her 30's! 

That being said I'm giving myself 'another' kick up the arse because who cares if no one reads! I'm doing this shit for me. I just get so overwhelmed with numbers and stats and other people doing fabulously that I let my own negative thinking ruin the enjoyment of just posting on my blog! So silly...

On a more positive vibe, uploading on YouTube is going well. I've set myself a schedule, every Monday I'll post my weekly vlog (I'm on week 6! Woohoo) and Wednesdays will be a makeup look and Saturdays will be a review type video. I think that's a nice mix and I'm really enjoying my channel at the moment. 

Anyway I've babbled enough. Here's to a happier February and a more centred Bex ;)

Much Love,

Bex X
