On the weekend I had my first ever photoshoot for just me! 
It was a bit of fun playing dress ups for a couple of hours.  
Crazy to think that the picture of me on the left was close to 5 years ago, taken back in October 2008.  It certainly keeps me motivated to keep the weight off, after all one of the biggest challenges after losing a lot of weight is keeping it off!!! 80-90% of people gain it all back and then some within 5 years which is pretty alarming.  October 2013 will be 5 years since I started this journey so by the time October 2014 comes around I will be 100% confident that all the weight I have lost is gone permanently.
