Hey soola!! sorry to hera you fed up, chin up hunny!! You know why you are doing this and you are getting there, there is light at the end of the tunnel you haven't got much longer to go now. It's great that you recognise that you're looking great though, and you know that what you see in the mirror can only get better as you carry on. Celebrate what you've done so far, treat yourself to some pampering or something to cheer youself up and don't forget to keep patting yourself on the back for how your efforts are finally paying off after such a long time!
Hope you feel better soon and well done on your 2lbs so far this week another couple and you'll be in the 11's....yay you!!

Found you - at last!

Awww huni, you sound so fed up. You have done absolutely fantastically well and you are a complete inspiration to the rest of your sisters and I am soooooo glad that you recognise that you look great but really bothered that you cant see that in the mirror. I do understand though, when you (not you personally, you in general) have a weight problem for so long I think your whole perception of how you look changes and all you see is overweight when you look in the mirror. I honestly dont know when that changes, or if it ever does, and I know I am finding it hard to see a slimmer me when I look in the mirror, depsite knowing what I've lost so far and knowing that it must show somewhere - its weird how our wee twisted minds work.

I dont know what to say to make you feel better, and I dont know if anything I could say would make any difference, you are having a crap time with totm and that certainly cant be helping with your mood or your motivation but you are doing so well and are nearing the end of your journey and I really want you to hang on in there and get to the end.

SS is not easy, that I do agree, and anyone thinking its a quick fix is off their head because it certainly is not! The side effects can be awful, the feeling of being deprived is really difficult to deal with at times and I have ceased to feel "normal" or part of the real world but you have to look at what you have achieved, the hard work, determination and sheer guts that it has taken to get to where you are now and then give yourself an almightly big pat on the back and be proud of what you have achieved and of the amazing inspirational and supportive person that you are.

Did writing it all down there help any at all or are you still feeling s***??

Oh, honey... it really is so hard to lose weight, especially this time of year! Hopefully this morning you're feeling a little bit better.

I read somewhere that it takes at least six months for your mind to completely catch up with your new body size, and even longer if you've lost a dramatic amount of weight in a short period of time. I don't know how long you've been on SS, but maybe it's just that catch up period you're bumping up against?

It's taken you a long time to get there, but you've done it. Hang in there... (hug)

Angie, darling I have written war and peace on our sisters thread it might help.
OHHHHHHh 15months, you lightweight, try almost 3yrs, lol, only playing, it is so hard, theres no question.
Being unwell, certainly doesnt make it any easier, you can do this if you really want to,and you deserve the very best out of life.

Just to say too, I thought I would be happy in a size 16 all round, but Iam in a 12,14 top and I want to be smaller, iam in a size 16 jeans, which are loose and I want to be much smaller, for me I wonder if I will ever be happy.
That said I have just changed my goal to abit lower so that I can offically say "Im half the woman I used to be",and I bet you when I get there, I will rethink, thing is my BMI will be 25 soon,so wont be allowed to do ss anymore and that scares me.
Hope your feeling better.
