Weight Loss/Gain Posts?

Hey gang, hope you're all good :)

I've been seeing a few blog posts recently about weight loss and such like. You know January fitness regimes, healthy eating resolutions etc. I mentioned yesterday that I am of the "squidgy" body type. Let's just say I need my arse safely secured on to the weight loss band wagon.

To cut to the chase, I lost 4 stone about 3 years ago, over a period of around 18 months. I was still a chubster but healthy and happy. More curvy than lardy. I still felt inadequate and massive. Anyway I put a LOT of weight on last year as I've previously mentioned it was a terrible year, again I won't go in to that here.

Me pre and post weight loss (pre-weight gain) :(


So I'm obviously just baby stepping back in to the world of health. Given my previous experience I'm hoping I've got some good tips and tricks to keep me motivated/help me be successful. I was just wondering, does anyone want to read about my journey or some good exercise/weight loss tips? Just to be clear my actual weight loss and healthy lifestyle was very successful. I just turned to food when times got rough, which is another thing that needs to be dealt with. But hey ho, 1 thing at a time :)

I just thought I'd see if anyone was interested in that sort of post because I know I love reading them. And ultimately I think being healthy is definitely in the interest of everyone interested in beauty. :)

Let me know what you think,

Livvy xo

P.s. Sorry for the short post, I'm still feeling uncomfortable talking about it all.

  3. I think a lot of people will like this because you're a real girl who people can relate to, not some celeb in a magazine who generally spouts out lies about their regimes. Good luck with everything! xx

  4. Hi Livvy, well done you losing all the weight! That is really great! And you look fab... What I think is, that you have to make peace with you food, it should be your friend and not your enemy... And I also think writing and reading about healthy lifestyle heals and motivates you at the same time.... so go for it!

  5. I think you're beautiful whatever size, but I admire your dedication to getting healthy and I think writing about it will both help to motivate you and perhaps inspire others (like myself!) to do the same xo
