    OK, so I only ost 1lb last week, let's put that into perspective. Overall loss has been spectacular and I am already over 1stone lighter than my original target, so all's good.

    2 milestones though today:

    1. Played badminton for an hour this morning, and was able to 'run' around for the whole hour, and even better wasn't sodden with sweat afterwards! (would have been dripping after 10 minutes before).

    2. Just been shopping, and my previous delight at getting into smaller clothes has been supassed. Have just bought some MEDIUM sized swimmers!!!! - Yes, honestly ME!

    Woo, and Hoo. So in 12 weeks I've gone from a large XXL, to Medium.

    This wasn't my reason for starting LL, but by heavens it helps :D

    well done sean
    i only lost 1 this week too, but have been on such a high after getting into size 12s.
    Makes you realise that the scales don't really matter do they,its how you feel and what you wear that gives you the confidence and makes you feel good

    Thanks for positive strokes one and all. Absolutely agree Daisy, I was a little 'down' after WI as I was hoping to finish absitnance in 3 weeks, but yesterday has completely changed my attitude. The weight is important but even a low loss is a positive and ever decreasing size is a massive bonus.

    Glad to help any newbies with posts, it only seems like a few days ago that I was starting out myself, just can't believe how fast the time and weight has gone.

    Well done Sean - those milestones are always great to hit!


    Yo my mind, most of us want to lose weight because're we're fat - so really it's the fat and size that is a problem and not the actual weight. O'd celebrate if I put weight on but went down a clothes size!

    Fantasic Sean, great milestones to hit!

    and the fact you've done this
    in such a short time is seriously amazing; it's taken me twice as long to drop the same clothing sizes!


    Chuffed for you mate, really am :)
