    What has been the best thing for you, so far, that has come from losing weight?

    Thought this could be a bit of an inspiration thread for when we're feeling down.

    For me it has to be the fact that I now have so much more energy so want to get out and do more which leads to me losing more. A circle of goodness!!

    More confidence and energy then I've known in a long time and just generally being happier with myself. and just being able to shop where/when I want to.

    I can run for the bus, past traipsing students who think I won't get there in time, catch the bus, and then not have to hide my red sweaty face while I sit on the bench to catch my breath and they walk on past.

    :D

    I feel like me again:) and that I might actually look ok. I'm enjoying clothes shopping again, enjoying make up again and generally feeling so much better, fitter, just brilliant.

    I'm so motivated at the moment, and I feel really happy. Sw is just fab!

    I feel pretty much the same as everyone else ....... loving buying clothes in a size 14 instead of 24 .... feeling like i actually look quite nice instead of a big mess ..... trying a bit of make up again .... definately lots more energy which also means i am running again ... i used to run when i was 18 and loved it so now i am back to running ... its brilliant!!! I never want to go back to being as big as i was!!!

    Oh and if i am being honest with myself ... I love the look on peoples faces that i havent seen for a while ... the surprise that i am smaller than i was 8 months ago!!!

    Is that SW has given me a normal way of life with eating. I still have rebellious moments where I want to give up, but they are few and far days.

    Also that ive kept my weight down whilst pregnant and when bubba is born I'm already in the SW mindset

    Not squeezing into an airplane seat and breathing in to fasten the seat belt.

    Also knowing I can sit in a camping chair without knowing I exceed the maximum weight limit.

    Oh and all the above :D

    I now take more interest in how i look, before losing weight i didn't see the point as i just felt like a big lump. Clothes fit me better and i can now do my shoes up with ease.
