    I weighed in yesterday & even though I had a really bad binge day last week I still managed to lose 4.5 lbs!!! & to top it all I hit the 5 stone mark.
    I am gobsmacked to say the least.
    I decided to treat myself to keep me motivated for the week ahead, so I went into Next to buy a new pair of jeans in the next size down (as an incentive) & yes you've guessed it they fitted. I am now a size 12!!!!!!
    I am still in shock.
    So to all you newbies, keep going & don't give in, 16 weeks ago I used to be size 20/22, weight was 17st 2lbs, BMI 37.8,
    I am now size 12 (still can't believe it) 12st & my BMI is 26.9.

    Thanks everyone for all your wonderful comments.
    Bethany I'm on the best diet in the whole world 'Lighter Life'.
    Tiger girl - it won't be long.
    I've just tried on a pair of shorts that used to fit me 20 years ago & they actually fit me. Yes I know I'm sad for keeping them that long. LOL, but at least I know what I looked like 20 years ago!

    ISOM & Bethany, I will try & get OH to do the photo's soon, he is so busy lately with work, doing the house up & having treatment at the hospital & I've got no idea how to do it myself.
    I think I'll wait til my holiday & then I'll have some slim holiday photo's, it will be the first time for years that I'll want to be in the photo's.
    Bethany I've got my LL before photo's & after 100 days (foundation).

    I know just how you feel Cherry. It's fantastic news.


    "...I've just tried on a pair of shorts that used to fit me 20 years ago & they actually fit me. Yes I know I'm sad for keeping them that long. LOL, but at least I know what I looked like 20 years ago....."


    I kept a dress I bought in 1992 because I loved it. I only wore it once and it was a bit tight and I said to myself "I'll slim into it". I never did. Until now. Now it is too big, and still does not fit. I will still keep it, it has special memories.
