My weight loss bucket list

What will you do as you lose weight? Do you have any goals – both short-term and long-term? There are so many things that my weight and/or size have stopped me from doing, either because I’ve just been too heavy, too big or my confidence has been zapped. So, I’ve put my goals into two lists below: things I can now do since starting my weight loss journey and things still to be achieved. Yes, we like seeing the pounds come off but there’re many non-scale victories to be had too!
