    I had a bit of a breakthrough moment yesterday..not only did I (finally) hit the 2 stone mark on monday but I have a big party coming up and I went shopping for a dress yesterday..I really did not think I would find anything I liked (years of experiencing that) but not only did I do that but I managed to get into a size 20!

    Now, I know that still makes me a Hugh Jass, and I still have a LONG way to go (7 stones ish) but considering I was in a mimimum of a size 26 when I started (and I've been wearing the same big, now baggy) clothes for months, I was astonished.

    I finally realised I really have lost weight/inches...it's not just anumber on the scale.

    I'm really so chuffed with myself, even though it's a tiny drop in my ocean of flab, but somehow it feels wrong to be so happy about it (like I don't deserve it)..is it ok to be happy?

    Thanks :)

    I should probably add that it was an Evans size 20, so maybe a bit more generous than it would have been in another shop.

    It's not only ok to be happy - it's obligatory! You've worked hard to lose the weight, so give yourself a big pat on the back and enjoy the feeling of achievement you've got.

    I have the same amount as you to lose so and I've lost the same amount too so I know how you feel! My clothes are getting looser so even if I don't see a loss on the scales I can feel the loss in inches...
