The Start of my Weight Loss Journey
In March I posted a blog post about Breast Reduction, and how I was thinking about having one....

I got some absolutely amazing responses to it, they all said, "it has changed my life", I can totally see how that would be, as the weight in my breasts is ridiculous.
Therefore I decided, enough was enough, I told my Dr in London at the clinic and he referred me to another DR, within a few weeks I had an appointment to see him, at my first appointment the Dr was not there but I saw someone from his team and she was so lovely and helpful, she told me everything and all I needed to know. I was given two months to think about it.
I went away and came back two months later, met the Dr, I had hardly any questions as the lady I saw before was so amazing! I decided to go for it, I am now awaiting for my letter to say when my surgery will be, but I wanted to do a blog post journey for you all!
Whilst I was at the Dr's office, he said ideally loose as much weight as you can before the operation as it can change the way it heals if you loose too much after.
A week later I signed up to Weight Watchers, my mum was supposed to be joining me, I am doing it online as I am far too shy and terrified to go to an actual meeting.
My starting weight was 14 stone and half a pound, I decided I want to loose 2 stone before the operation then 1 1/2 stone after the operation.
I have been told the time for waiting could be 4 to 5 months, therefore I have 4 months to loose 2 stone in.
This "diet" is not as such a diet but a change in the way I eat for ever, because once I have had the operation I cannot go back to eating the way I did before, otherwise my boobs will just grow back and I will have to have another operation.
I started this "Life Change" on 30 July 2013 at a weight of 14 Stone and half a Pound
At the start of my "Life Change" Weight Watchers put me on 33pp per day and 49pp weekly
I am now just over two weeks in.
The first week at weigh in I was 13 Stone 11 1/4 Pounds
After loosing my first few pounds Weight Watchers reduced me to 32pp per day and kept me on 49pp (I have felt that point missing, strange isn't it)
The second week at weight in I was 13 Stone 10 Pounds!
I have lost so far 4 1/2 pounds!
It is a good start but I still have 1 stone and 9 1/2 pounds to loose! I think it is do able!
I will try and check in once a week, any other post to do with this you want me to do let me know!
I am so excited that I will be able to get rid of the weight on my chest and enjoy my life properly again!
