    I've just (about 10 minutes ago) managed to get into a pair of knee high boots!!! thats one of my major aims personally. I hated never being able to just go into a shop and buy some.

    Hi Kati,

    That is fab, knee high boots:)

    Well done, I feel so many can relate to how good it must feel being able to just walk in off the street and find knee high boots to fit.

    Well done you:)

    Thank you mini I am not going to mad with the exercise, just using my stepper and building it up gradually, Im not allowed to do much exercise anyway as I have a big umbilical hernia which has recurred from 8 yrs ago.
    Another reason for my dieting to get it operated on.

    Thanks it's just annoying that I had to get down to a size 10 to 12 to be able to get into them! yet I have a friend who is a 16 and she has no trouble getting into them anywhere.

    Hi Sonkie,

    Wise woman:)

    Don't know much about an umbilical hernia, but my husband has an operation many moons ago for one lower down:eek:

    He has never complained since but makes sure not to life anything too heavy.

    Sharing my achievements...
    • In Malta at the moment visiting my family and have just come back from a big family meet up and everyone immeditely told me that I must have lost loads of weight (I've only lost ten pounds since I last saw them in October). Feels fab.
    • I am doing the GI diet and when following it I feel amazing - excellent energy levels and I really do believe that my eating habits have changed - I want to stick the style of eating FOREVER. I'm not saying that I don't occasionally want to eat some naughty stuff, but I fully intend to eat low GI for the majority of the time - for the rest of my life.
    • I started the GI diet in Sept, starting weight 14.5. My current weigh is 12.9.:D :D I'm still a way from my goal of 9 stone, but I KNOW I WILL GET THERE.
    • I have lost 5 inches off my waist, 3 inches off my bust and hips.
    • I am now size 18 and the proud owner of lots new size 18 clothes from Qs and Primark ;)
    Anyway thats it for now.

    Well done to everyone else for their achievements and mini this was a great idea!

    Luv CC xx xx xx xx

    Hi CC,

    You have a lot of good achievements there for sure.

    I think the reason that they see the difference more is that I have noticed that the skin does 'snap' back into shape as time goes on, so you can look a lot slimmer for losing 10lbs. now than perhaps earlier on when you lost more than that but the skin was not as toned.

    I am very interested in doing the GI diet myself once at goal, so I will be looking for hints and tips to keep me on track.

    Primark are very small fitting and I find their size 18's more like size 16's? Or is this just me making excuses for myself:rolleyes:

    Hope the weather is warm over there in Malta?

    Well done CC.

    Love Mini xxx
