So many quotes I could use today. I had a bad calorie weekend which started Friday afternoon - too many social engagements. My main meals were relatively on point until yesterday brunch when I threw in the towel and took bites off of other plates and ate the amazing toast that came with the mussels. This weekend defeated me so to speak but did not defeat my long term lifestyle change. The difference for me is that today I reset to get back on track and I know in a couple of days I will be feeling good (two days off and I feel really bloated and awful). I know I can’t redo this weekend every weekend but it was fun and I wouldn’t have changed it! #diet#lifelessons#lifestylechange # #weightlossjourney#weightloss#reset
As I was going through pictures and looking at this one from the other night there were a million things I wanted to fix 😞 I thought “omg my face looks so fat” “look at those crows feet” “ugh I need a tan I look sick” I’m sure there are thousands of girls out there that pick themselves apart everyday, just like myself. 💔 The truth is, it’s a fuckin’ process. Self love doesn’t happen over night, it doesn’t happen in a couple months, it may take YEARS to develop that love for yourself and body after birth or after weight gain. 🤰🏽 I know I say this a lot or I have in the past but I’m ready. I’m ready to make a positive change and REALLY focus on me for once. I have to be number 1 for a while. ☝🏽💆🏽♀️💯💕 #selflove#lifestylechange#bigthings#inspiration#mondaymotivation#monday#selfie
One of my favourite Powerlifting moments of last year. My 110kg sumo Deadlift PB. This PB was shortlived as I hit 120kg 5 days after this, however the PB on the day meant the world. After a tough year with Deads, this was a gem. I can't wait to get back into Powerlifting prep and hit these numbers in conventional dead.
Hi 👋🏼 my name’s Mel. I’ve started this Instagram account as a way to track my fitness and keep myself accountable. My goal is to lose 7kg by August and another 13kg after that. I have very little will power and what I’d call an addiction to food. I’m also struggling to get to the gym at the moment, but last week I got back there for the first time in 6 months. So...this is me. Laying it all out on the line!
No one ever asks what made you GAIN weight.
I never thought I’d be brave enough to share this part of my life.
Though this is painful to share, I know we are stronger when we talk about our struggles-and I hope you will share yours with me below. ( #metoo)
When I was 21 I was slipped a date-rape drug.
The remaining details are not significant to my story, but something was taken from me that night that I’ll never get back.
The final words I was left with were “I only gave you what you deserved”...which were words that pierced my heart and mind for many years to come.
I immediately turned to food for comfort. Honestly, the more weight I gained-the safer I felt. I felt like if I was overweight, no one would find me attractive and I wouldn’t ever get hurt again.
But the weight that I carried pierced much deeper.
Instead of dealing with it, I tucked it away in my mind and hoped I would never have to face it. I started eating my feelings instead...
The sad reality is: 1 in 6 women will be a victim of sexual assault/rape. And it’s something we don’t talk about. At least I didn’t for many years. It was a secret I hid from the world because I felt so ashamed.
NOBODY is deserving of that. NOBODY. And it took me many years to fully believe that.
I didn’t take care of myself anymore...
I didn’t love myself anymore...
Food was the only comfort that I had...
The thought of taking it away made me UNcomforable.
But I took my life BACK...and so can you.
I share this with you, because I know I’m not alone. Many of us had an event that triggered us to gain weight. But the beautiful thing is: you have the power within you to overcome it.
We are not defined by our past.
We are not what had happened to us.
We have the power to design a bright future and never look back.
We have nothing to be ashamed of.
And I know that if I can overcome my struggles...so can YOU.

I’m back again with a third attempt at starting SW. I reached target a year ago but unfortunately I did not Maintain that weight because I did not maintain the lifestyle and as everyone from #slimmingworlduk knows it’s a #lifestylechange#notadiet. This time I’m setting a slightly heavier target than before as I’m more accepting of my post-baby body, I will commit to posting weekly updates here and food pics when we try something new, I’ll be attending group later tonight, so here goes nothing! ❤️🦄
. . So I’ve been a Herbalife member since 2016 but haven’t ever taken advantage of that since I joined 🤷🏼♀️ the first time I did a Herbalife challenge I had awesome results within the first week! So I’ve recently been in contact with a new Herbalife coach who can hopefully get me onto a sustainable healthy living plan. I don’t want this just to be a 2 week fix, I need to start making a lifestyle change! .
Products will only arrive later this week so next week Monday will be day 1 ✊🏼
Got my bag back! Woohoo. Feeling clean and ready for all of the adventures. Being out of routine definitely stops me from doing my usual self love practice as often so I thought today I would share 3 quick tips you can use wherever and whenever!
