    I wondered if anyone would like to join me in listing their achievements to date, and their future goals?
    I have given my lists some heavy thought and consideration over the past couple of days and think that by posting them we can continue to support each other.

    Achievements so far
    *I have lost the weight of my almost 5 year old child!
    *I have got more than 2 pairs of bottoms that fit me. In fact, I have LOADS of bottoms that fit me now!
    *I can wear my wedding, engagement AND eternity rings all at the same time, and they are getting loose!
    *I have a lot more confidence.
    *I found my libido ;)
    *I look in the mirror and don't feel disgusted.
    *I took my son swimming and didn't think twice about being in a costume.
    *I am learning to accept compliments.
    *My skin glows because I no longer glug crappy carbonated drinks. Water is the way ahead, and lots of it.
    *I feel more 'accepted' by others
    *The seatbelt wasn't an issue when I flew last month!

    Future goals

    *I want to be able to go into a shop and buy a size 14 knowing it will fit me without trying it on.
    *I want to go to my first mess function (hubby in forces) dressed to kill.
    *I want to be in photos! My son is almost 5 and there are so few pics of us together as I hate my pic being taken.
    *I want to reach my goal weight before Christmas, because we're going on our hols and I want to hit the US shops in a big bad way! Have always bought anything that fit, now I want to buy stuff I like!
    *I want to feel proud of myself. I am learning to like what I see but I need to work on it some more.
    *I'd love to be chatted up! Sounds silly, and I am VERY happily married, but I would love for someone else to think I was worthy of a try!

    I find it really disheartenening that over 40 people have viewed and only one has taken the time to reply. I was hoping that others would enjoy sharing their achievements, but I suppose I was wrong. :(:(

    Great thread - really makes you think
    Achievements so far are: fitting into a pair of jeans I bought 20 years ago - not quite sure why I have kept them as they have no lycra in them so feel quite uncomfortable but they are loose now whereas before I could hardly get them over my bum! Losing over 2 stone - the most I have ever done whilst dieting and I will keep going. Not eating a carb at all since I started the diet - no pasta, no bread, no rice - my favourite things! People noticing that I have lost weight - its really encouraging.

    Goals - to get down to a Size 14 or maybe even a 12 - 12 unlikely but I might try
    to be able to enjoy my holiday at end of Oct but also to get back on when I get back to reach my goal
    to be able to move up the plans and start reintroducing more food -although I am not at that stage yet its something I am quite scared of
    To be able to run about much more and race up the stairs at the tube stations when I am in a rush! Finally to be treated normally by all those other people who think you must be odd/not worth talking to because you are overweight!

    Hi all,
    Well I still consider myself a newbie but if I may, here goes!
    Achievements so far
    * I made the decision that I no longer will be obese.
    * I realised that I am worth more than a lifetime of feeling miserable
    * I have lost a stone in 2 week so far on SS.

    Future Goals And Aspirations

    * I want to be a size 12 by the time I am 40!
    * I want to wake up without wincing, and groaning with a sore back.
    * I want to be able to run about with my children, go swimming without embarrassment, and enjoy theme parks without the fear of not fitting in the seats.
    * I want to be able to have a happy and exciting sex life with the lights on.
    * I want to be able to wear clothes that suit me instead of clothes that just fit me!
    * I want to find the person I know is hiding inside of me, but who at the moment is too shy to come out.
    * To look my age instead of 20 years older!

    I agree three weeks into the diet and lost over a stone. After recently being made redundant I gained a lot more weight and became unhealthy, I have made my mind up to make a go of this diet.

    To wear skirts and dress's again after six years.
    Wear a ball gown on my next cruise.
    Feel more healthy.
    Be able to walk without puffing and panting.
    Gain self esteem.
    Look attractive again for my hubby.:cupid:

    redhead66 This will be my year

    Hi all,

    I'm newbie (only started CD on Wednesday), so my achievements are a bit limited:-
    1. Stepping on the scales after putting it off for months :eek:
    2. Joining a gym

    1. To see my OH's face when he walks through the door after 6 weeks away - he comes back end of October, and sees me looking fab and feeling good about myself
    2. To walk into any shop and know that I can take my pick of any style and any colour I fancy
    3. Not have the assistants look at me as if to say 'who are you kidding?' if I ask for my size... not that I'd want to spend my hard earned cash over in those shops anyway :D
    4. To be able to keep up with the rest of the class at the gym
    5. To not always be the one taking the photo's rather than appearing in them
    6. To go to my OH's works party in January and have all the young guys he works with talk about me afterwards for the right reasons
    7. To have the confidence to go ahead with the boudoir photo shoot I've organised for my OH's Xmas pressie - I don't know where my head was the day I booked it, but the idea of stripping off is keeping me on the straight and narrow :)
    8. To have a sexy Rhianna style crop and know my head doesn't look like a basketball
    9. To be chatted up in the queue at the supermarket - I'm very happy with my OH, but it would still be nice for a dishy guy to pay me a little attention :)

    Thanks for starting this off Jabba, reading everybody's posts has given me so much inspiration and boosted my motivation to hit my own goals.
