Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
As you will be aware on 04 June I was knocked off my bike and was unable to complete the challenge due to a broken rib :(
Many of you have kindly said that you would honour the sponsorship and for this I am really grateful. However I am taking part in the Bassetlaw Sprint triathlon tomorrow and therefore if anyone who has not had the chance to sponsor me previously can do so now.
Many many thanks for your support and encouragement xx
On 12 September 2012 I got weighed for the first time in a long, long time. Imagine my shock and horror when the scales read 37 stones :(
Through the help and love from family, friends, colleagues, I went on an amazing journey. I joined a local Slimming World group and over the weeks, my weight began to get less. I was eating great meals and started gently exercising by walking. Over the months with the encouragement of those around me, I continued to lose the weight and increased my exercise. I started jogging and in December 2013 I was delighted when I achieved my first target of losing 22 stones. Since this time, I have lost a further 1/2 stone and was honoured when on 07 May 2014 I was crowned Slimming Worlds Greatest Loser 2014.
I have been very fortunate with my health and when I was asked to participate in the London - Amsterdam challenge, I was more than happy to step up to the challenge.
I cannot think of a better way to take the next steps on my journey in life and would be most grateful if I could ask you brilliant people to continue to support me.
Thank you in advance for your wonderful contributions.
