I am in same boat as you currently size 20 I used to be a lovely size 12 and I still have my old clothes I refuse to throw them out because most of them are designer labels I paid a fair bit of money on so can't bear to see it go without getting my use of them.

I reached a point where I am just tired of being the way I am so its enough motivation for me to get fit I think the hardest thing for me is realizing that it isn't going to take me 2 weeks of hard gym sessions but at least 1 month if not more because of the amount of weight I have put on.

I am also a keen cyclist and the fact that I want to get back on my road bike and feel fit when I do also acts as a motivator.

I have taken a favourite top or two and hung it up in my room to act as a constant reminder that this is what I want to get back into. It helps.

I find slimming world quite good. My friend us flung really well at Rosemary Conoley. Both my friend and I had to get pretty depressed about our weight heftier being able to get 'in the zone' to diet.

You'll find the sunnier days will help.
I would put the clothes in the loft,buy a few bits to see you through that fit,and aim to eat sensibly for a slow loss.
The clothes will still be in the loft when you're ready for them.
Anything that is seriously unrealistically small,give to a charity shop.

I started low carbing with BIWI and her gang on 7 Jan. have lost 18lbs now and feel great eating amazing food.

I cut out carbs and sugar and the difference is amazing.

Biwi is starting a new bootcamp on 29 April.

Read up about it and come and join us. smilesmile
