Kara Buttery wanted to make her 10th anniversary extra-momentous. But she was quite not happy with whatever she had. So made a commitment to herself.
37-year-old Kara is a teaching advisor who has turned into a bigger size since her marriage in 2006. She will be celebrating her 10th anniversary in coming April and mom of two Kara wants to look like as she was on her wedding day. She motivated herself and worked for this.
Talking to the Mirror she said, “I could blame having kids, or working flat out, but really, I was just lazy and I ate an incredibly unhealthy diet full of sugar.” I’d get home from work and look forward to putting the kids to bed so I could snuggle up on the sofa with a packet of Hobnobs, a bar of Daily Milk, a bag of chewy sweets and even a slice of cake. I’d just munch my way through the lot, then do it all again, night after night.”
Kara and her husband Andew have decided to visit the Dominican Republic on their 10th anniversary. That was the place where they got married. She said, "We booked it in January this year, but the thought of going back made me realise how much I’d changed since last time. I didn’t want to hit the beach looking and feeling the way I did. I knew I had to reboot my life. With our anniversary holiday booked for March 2016, I finally had a goal.”
Let's look at her journey of body transformation. She had her selfies wearing the same outfit every month.
She was a size 12 when she got married. Her figure started getting bigger after having a child.
She told, "I took a selfie every month, wearing the same black underwear, and I shrunk by a stone every month. Taking those pictures gave me the drive to carry on as I watched myself visibly disappear."
