    I just wanted to share because I am thrilled to announce that I have lost the weight of my mother in law :D 8 stone! it hardly seems possible.

    6.5stone on CD (6 months) and 1.5stone on SW (6 weeks)

    started size 30 clothes skin tight
    now size 16 tops and size 18 jeans
    and Mike and I can fit together into my fat jeans

    my life has totally changed, I have energy and do exercise of some form or another every day. I buy clothes super cheap from the supermarket and even went out and got a stunning evening dress the other week for my cruise at the end of next month. I try anything and everything in life these days and nothing holds me back

    but the biggest thing is that food is now just a fuel, it isn't my best friend and my worst enemy rolled into one. I eat my meals and I don't even think about food the rest of the time. I eat well and enjoy cooking exciting meals (especially indian and thai meals) and eating them as a family.

    I never really thought I could be free of the hell that was being obsessed with food but I am.

    I never realised I was trapped in my own body, but I was. but no more, now my body is mine to enjoy.

    thanks for all your support girls. this isn't the end. there's at least another 2 stone to go, maybe more depending on how I feel when I get there. but the big issue of life change has happened and that's worth celebrating.

    good luck to everyone just starting or struggling. if I can do it, believe me anyone can. when the time is right, it happens.
