22 on 22 and 20 on 20

When I was first starting this journey of weight loss I got a lot of help from Vic. She knows me really well, (because we've been friends for what seems like forever) and understands that I really want to have some dramatic weight loss before I show everyone how the exercise and weight loss is changing my body.

The one thing that Vic tried to drum into me was that it's okay to have the big goal of wanting to lose ten stone, but that I needed to break it down into smaller manageable goals so that I had something to aim for and something that I could achieve.

The problem for me was that I had no idea what a manageable goal was.

Vic helped me though and I decided on the goal of being a size 22 by the 22nd August. It was a date that was far enough away that it gave me the time to lose enough weight, but it was also close enough that I wasn't going to lose momentum.

I'm pleased to announce though that I managed to hit my goal a whole 22 days early (well actually it was 25 days early but who's counting?!) and I'm comfortably wearing size 22 clothes.

Now I just have to work out what my next goal should be.

I'm thinking maybe a size 20 by the 20th September and 18 stone by The MADs. It's going to be hard, I'm going to have to really push myself to my limits to get the weight loss and to tone my body up so that the weight loss is more noticeable!

Now I have to go to bed, so I can get up in the morning to go to the gym. I have a lot of work ahead of me.

Don't forget to check out what I'm doing over at A Mothers Ramblings too!


  1. Well done Pippa, that's brilliant! If you can spare some of your motivation could you pass some over to me, I just can't seem to keep going at the moment.

    1. You can have some! Honestly it's scary how much I have lol.

  2. Oh my word! Pippa that is amazing! Huge well done and here's to your next goal :-)

  3. And the penny drops!

    Don't forget that a safe rate of weight loss is up to 2lbs a week so only set 18 stone as your goal for the September date if it's possible with a maximum 14lb loss by then.

    I'm so proud of what you've achieved so far. It's amazing! We will soon both be skinnier than Ems!

    1. Yay to being Skinnier than Em! I know that it's 2lb a week, but sometimes I'm losing 3lbs because of how much weight I have to lose.


Thanks for joining in the conversation!
