6 months of SW....

Devon Dolce

1lb at a time!

and...

- I have lost 18.5 pounds
- I have lost 17.5 inches from all over my body
- I have reduced my BMI from 32.2 (obese) to 29.5 (overweight)
- I have lost at 20 weigh ins out of 26 and had 3 stay the sames and 3 gains
- I haven't felt this good about myself in a long time!

I dread to think where I'd be if I hadn't walked into that class 6 months ago! I know this time I can and will do it and most importantly enjoy losing the weight! We can all do this, we just need to have faith in ourselves and trust in the plan! Just wanted to share really! xxxx

You're doing really well - hats off to you. Just think how much more comfortable you're going to feel this coming summer (as I've put my order in for a nice warm one)

Keep up the good work

Well done, you should be so proud, and more importantly you are enjoying it, which is the best thing ever - no reason to stop when its working so well and having such a positive effect on you.
At the moment I am struggling to re-start so it was lovely to read your post, and gives me some motivation.

Thanks Devon for posting such a lovely, positive thread!! So often I read posts from 'fed-up' people who clearly want to lose a great deal of weight in as short as possible time and it's great that you see this as a long term thing and not something to be rushed!! I must confess that I've been a bit down in the dumps the last couple of weeks as I've been 100% on plan and have STS then last week gained 1 1/2lb which I did find soul destroying as I had been so good!! HOWEVER, you've helped me to see it in a different light and to look at what I've acheived rather than what I haven't!! So here goes:-
-I've lost 31.5 lb (was 33lb until last week!!!)
-I've lost weight at 19 weigh-ins, STS at 1 weigh-in and gained a little at 2 weigh-ins!
-I've gone down 2 dress sizes from 20 to 16 (just!)
-I'm already experiencing so many of the benefits of losing weight- better skin, collar bones, lots more energy, lots of compliments, less spare tyre around middle when I sit down!!

Thanks again for making me look at it from a glass half full viewpoint!!X

Well done Devon Dumpling - you've achieved a lot in 6 months! Like funcurls said, it's always a good thing to look at your losses and the benefits of that as a big picture when you are feeling a little demotivated or annoyed with a STS/gain. When you see how far you have come on your SW journey, that gain/STS doesn't seem as a major spanner in the works!

Keep up the good work xx
