    Hubby just came back from doing the weekly shop, which he`s happy to do without me for obvious reasons.

    Anyway, he handed me a shopping bag, and said `careful that bag`s heavy`.
    I agreed, it was- took a look inside and it was 4 bags of sugar.( bought especially to help me judge weights !!)

    As he said, they weigh approx 8.8lbs, (less than my 12 day loss), and that is how much less I am carrying around !!

    So that I don`t feel down when or if I have weeks of slower losses, we are going to just add bags of sugar to the running total , which I`m keeping in one of those bags for life.

    Any time I feel like slacking, I`m simply going to lift that bag up !!!!

    You girls should try it, I didn`t realise just how heavy even 8.8 lbs was !!

    :)

    Bless him! My CDC has huge bits of plastic fat to show how much weight we were carrying around - not quite as pleasant as a bag of sugar I must admit!!

    Awww Fatfrog !!! I think a £1 an hour would do, BUT its has taken him many many years of training !!!!!

    And Chelsea Lou, no he doesn`t have a brother !!!!

    I think although he`d NEVER say it, he is looking forward to me losing my excess flab once and for all, and wants to keep me motivated!!

    That's a good idea, I always used to get disheartened about losing 1 or 2lbs but having the actual bag of sugar, makes you realise how much you've lost.
