Lauren Loses It | Weigh in #3

Well hello there...

It's time for another 'Lauren loses it post!' - if you missed my last post, have a nosy here.
I hope you enjoy reading these weight loss posts, as much as I enjoy writing them!

Let's get started...

Reaching my goal
I have reached my goal! I can't believe that after 6 and half months of working my arse off, I have finally seen my goal weight pop up on my scales.
I thought I would share some before and after photographs, with you lovely lot!

 Before...
 After!
The middle picture is me wearing my old (and now extremely baggy!) pair of size 18 jeans!

Exercise
I have continued to work out 3 times per week and have been doing lots of toning exercises - such as squats, lunges and sit ups, as well as cardio.
I have also been loving the Just Sweat section on the Just Dance game, it's a great cardio workout, including a warm up, cool down and stretches.

Food and Snaps from the week
Here are a few snapshots of my meals and snacks from the past few weeks; If you would like to see more, give me a cheeky follow on Instagram @clumsybaby 
Wants, goals, needs and achievements
1. I still can't believe I have reached my goal weight!

2. I can't wait to start buying new clothes, sorry bank balance!
(I may have already made a few cheeky purchases from ASOS and Dorothy Perkins... shhh)

3. My ultimate goal is still to wear a bikini on my holiday in January, no cover up required

4. I want to continue to tone up my arms, legs and stomach 

5. I have actually dropped 4 dress sizes! I can't bloody believe it!


Weigh in
Start weight: 13 stone, 11 pounds, Dress size: 18-20

Goal weight: 10 stone

Current weight: 9 stone, 12 pounds, Dress size: 10-12


I hope you enjoyed this 'Lauren Loses It' post, I will continue to keep you updated with my journey as I try to maintain my current weight and healthy lifestyle.

    1. Aw thank you lovely! :) I work out at home, I use exercise DVD's and the wii fit. I have a 30 minute stretch and tone DVD which is good is you're short of time - I also throw in some sit ups, lunges and squats to tone up. (Try Amazon for some cheap deals!)

      I hope this helps :)
