Jennifer Ginley-Hagan  🌈 NATIONAL Miss Slinky 2017 πŸ’ƒ 🌈 March/April 17 SW Magazine Cover Girl πŸŽ‰ 🌈 HALVED my body weight in just over 1 YEAR πŸ¦‹ πŸ“§

Ready to honeymooooooon in Aruba with my best friend in the whole world. How boss are two week holidays with the love of your life?! It's like 14 amazing dates. SO EXCITED to make memories with my love @lukehagan89. 12 years together and just married. Life is delightful. πŸ¦‹πŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΌβœˆοΈ
I'll be posting pictures on my personal Instagram if you'd like to follow that @jennifer_ginley_hagan andddd some of the wonderful food I devour on this insta. I'm not sure how much I'll be posting yet but bye for now insta land! πŸ‘‹πŸ’™

Welllll my packing is done and I am ready to switch off (I'm reallllly bad at that lark). I'm feeling very joyous, calm and proud right now so I've decided to have a little glass of bubbles with my hubby. We need to fit in our #cheerstome moments in life so I'm doing exactly that. I set out to plan our perfect wedding in 7 weeks, live our perfect day with our nearest and dearest andddd get sorted for our honeymoon. After a mental week in work following our special day I'm seriously deserving this indulgent cheeeeeerrrss moment haha! Thank you for all cheering me on throughout these crazy couple of months. I'm so proud of myself for my achievements these past two years and I honestly couldn't have gotten through it without you lot and the community on here. I am so looking forward to these next two weeks in paradise with my husband, pure relaxation with a little adventure is needed! 😍
Also see that in my glass ladies and gents?! It is us slimming worlder's dream in wine form, well I'm specifically having the proseeco like bubbles one this evening. Throughout my weight loss and still at target I use syns on alcohol and if I fancied wine it was alllllways this! @blacktowerwine B range, it is lower in alcohol and therefore syn value! This specific one I am having tonight, B Rose Secco is 65 calories per 125ml glass so 3.5 syns (20 calories = 1 syn). The white, red and rose none bubbly versions are only 55 calories a 125ml serving; even better it is so cheap!! I buy it in @homebargains most of the time. Wonderful for satisfying those wine cravings within your syns! This will go down beautifully after a hectic day! To be fair when alcohol is so low syn and amazing remembering my reusable carrier bags when going food shopping could be a #cheerstome moment! Now off to enjoy this whilst relaxing on the couch with my husbandddd (still so surreal and exciting saying that!!). Goodnight instaland. ❀️

I'm just finishing my packing for Aruuuuuuba! We fly out tomorrow at 11am. We are going to be at the airport for 7.30am to have some breakfast anddddd shop in the duty free. πŸ˜†πŸ˜
Beach towels on top of my 30 outfits and then my hats on top of them. I am besotted with this hat!!!! The stunners from @noughtsandkisses sent me some gorgeous items for my honeymoon and I'm so thankful; I love them all. My personal favourites being those holographic blue shades and the hat. I also got two beautiful tops, I'll post when wearing them. Ladies if you want fabulous designer looking glasses at a fraction of the price and gorgeous holiday clothes/accessories you need to check out @noughtsandkisses. I won't be going anywhere else for glasses now. Gorgeous quality and proper sturdy cases with shade wipe! πŸ‘ŒπŸ’™
I am SO excited!!!! πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ό 🏝

I am still absolutely blown away that these beautiful friends of mine travelled from all over the country to come to our wedding. Seriously these are the most stunning ladies inside out and I'm so thankful I have them in my life. True friends forever and I couldn't adore them anymore. Luke, my family and friends also adore them, so many people came to me after our wedding saying 'how amazing are your gorgeous Instagram friends?!'. It's so crazy that this #swinsta community has provided me with these forever friends. I talk to most of them every single day and I can't remember not having them as close friends. I feel so flattered that they'd come and celebrate with us. They are all the most inspirational, beautiful ladies. They inspired me whilst losing weight and continue to do so. Not only did I get the pleasure of having my ladies there, slim Tom (@sw_emilie other half), posh Sam (@keepingitkimmie other half) and hysterical Dave (@missk_swjourney other half) came and celebrated with us. I ADORE these women. If you follow me you should definitely be following these stunning, inspirational insta bloggers. Also if you reaaalllly like someone in this delightful community, message them. You never know you could end up dancing to Aretha Franklin tuuuuunes with them on your wedding day?! Making new friends is amazing. When you grow up I think you really work out what it is you like in a person, and there's nothing better than developing great friendships that you know will last a lifetime. I LOVE THESE WOMEN SO MUCH. Thank you for being utter perfection and going to great lengths to make sure you could celebrate with us. Myself and Luke are so thankful. I also think my sister @cginner_x loves you lot more than she loves me haha! I love you @sw_emilie @slimmingworldxgemx @georgina_slimworld @keepingitkimmie @fopperholicslimmingworld @slimmingworld_becca @missk_swjourney @spanjee @mrsshilts_sw β€οΈπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œβ€οΈπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™

I went for a lovely, classic, nude shellac. I can't wear nail extensions, I hate the feeling. I loveeee shellac! For the first time I tried @lauraelizabethbeautyx
@aurabeautystudio near mine in Liverpool, @taylabeautymakeup done mine and my Mum's nails perfect for our special day. She stayed late two nights before the wedding to fit us in. Beautiful nude shellac was perfect was our special day. πŸ’–

I thought I would do a couple of posts about our hair and beauty for our wedding day. I was so lucky to receive this gorgeous gift form a beautiful fellow @slimmingworld'er @kms_slimmingworld ❀️
Kirsty very kindly offered to send me my favourite lashes for our special day. She seen me commenting on one of my posts about my love for these lashes, turns out she works for the company that does the PR for this company and offered to send me some as a gift. πŸ’–
I only really buy toiletries and beauty in @superdrugloves as they have so many #crueltyfree items. I went vegetarian in January and completely restocked my whole body and skin care, and make up items to be cruelty free. Completely, as in the company is also not owned by another company that funds testing elsewhere. @ardell_lashesuk are completely cruelty free and I was so excited when I found that out as they're my absolute favourite anyway!! Nothing better than the long, natural wispy look if you ask me. These are usually buy one get one half price for the individual packs in Superdrug. They're so lightweight and so gorgeous on with eye make up or not. If you've never worn these, try them and you'll love them I promise. Myself, my seven bridesmaids and the mothers wore these beautiful lashes. Thank you SO much Kirsty for this amazing wedding gift, I really appreciated it and our lashes were perrrrrfect. 😍

I missed 3 groups before weighing in today due to being away and sorting wedding things. Target members have that little bit more freedom, weekly weigh ins aren't required although I do love being at group every week and am looking forward to a routine once back from our honeymoon. I had gained 0.5 lb and I'm elated with that!!! I'm 9 stone 10 lb now, just 1 lb above my target! Felt fabulous trying on my holiday clothes and bikinis last night! I never would have dreamed I'd own size 8 and 10 bikinis. Being at target and in my new body still hasn't really sunk in and LOOOOOKKKK what I got today!!!! I am SO PROUD of this achievement!!! For one whole year I have maintained my weight and stayed in my target range, 3 lb above or below your target weight, which for me is 9 6 - 9 12. You get those very few negative Nancy's after losing weight that try and dismiss your achievement by telling you 'maintaining is the hard part'. Welllllll it was pretty hard to half my body weight, and any amount for that matter. @slimmingworld is the most successful weight loss organisation for many reasons, one being that they get people slim and keep them slim, happy, healthy and in control. That one year of losing the weight completely changed my whole thought process around food and gave me willpower of steel. It's not easy at all to maintain, to loosen the reigns and become fine with indulgence is difficult at times but as long as you remain in control and have good days mostly you WIN, not food!! I cannot believe I have been living the Target life dream for one year!!!!! I AM A DIAMOND TARGET MEMBER πŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’Ž

This time last week. A beautiful little moment I recorded whilst stood on our balcony in the bridal suite at @ashfieldhouse πŸ’š. Our first morning as a married couple in a perfect setting. The first sunrise I experienced as Mrs Ginley-Hagan. πŸ’š
Have a lovely Saturday all. Today is my Mum's 61st birthday and I'm off to my SW group this morning. I haven't been weighed for a few weeks due to wedding mania. I'll let you know how it goes. I'm packing my suitcase for Aruba later so I may do some insta stories on my holiday buys if any of you are interested?! HAPPY SATURDAY! πŸ’š

This exact time last week. Is there any better feeling than marrying your best friend?! I have never experienced anything better in my 27 years. So many married couples and wedding suppliers encouraged us to take some time away alone on our wedding day to just be calm and take in what was going on. After our ceremony we had photos then went upstairs to relax together for a little while in our gorgeous Bridal Suite at @ashfieldhouse, just before our wedding breakfast. It was amazing advice and we had a few alone moments which we will both treasure forever, we also didn't sleep until past 6 am, we did not want the day to end! I love you Mr Hagan, you are my perfect partner in this crazy ride we call life. @lukehagan89 ❀️
Those who are close to me will know this as they have a camera in their face with lots of questions whenever I am around, but I record so much of my life haha! I video log so much, they're just not public. ❀️
I can't help but share some of the special parts of the best day of my life so far with you all. I've had this account for two years and it means so much to me. You've all been with me through the most jam packed, wonderful years of my life and I hope you're enjoying what I'm sharing. ❀️

This morning I received this delivery in work, with my new name on πŸ˜†. I was absolutely baffled as to who they were from. The card just says '6 days happily married! X'. It turns out it was from my amazing HUSBAND @lukehagan89. In just a few hours we are exactly one week married. That week has flown by. 6 full days of being his WIFE 😍. He said he got me these as they resemble blue morpho butterflies the most 😩. My favourite colour and favourite things in the world; blue, butterfly and iridescent. I know it's cheeeeese but I really love his human being and feel like I'm in a bubble of happiness right now. My best friend and the man I'm utterly obsessed with is my husband and it's the best feeling in the world! It's also bloody marvellous that he is equally as in love and happy. I cannot wait to get on that plane on Monday morning and spend every minute of every day with my favourite human in paradise. Truly happy beyond words. πŸ¦‹
After 12 years together he still gives me craaaaazy butterflies. πŸ¦‹

This time last week was the night before our wedding and we were having dinner with our families and two of my perfect bridesmaids! Have you ever seen two happier humans?! I have never felt nerves like that although! That night before was like a blur, I only slept 2 and a half hours that night! ❀️
Only some of our nearest and dearest are on insta, we really couldn't have had our perfect day without your company - @cginner_x @bladeboydaz @sandrahagan05 @laurenh86 @chrishagan90 @abbibennett_ @izzy_.02 @k.a.r.a.06 @livmcq @laura_pj ❀️
Can we do it all again please?! ❀️
