    Just had to big myself up - Got weighed last night and at my goal 11stone 3lbs!! Yippeeeeee:angel09:Lost 7lbs in the last 2 weeks on 810.

    Never in a million years thought i would get to this point. I always said when i started this journey i would be happy at a size 14 / 16 but now i am in 12 / 14 and this exceeds all my expectations!!:bunnydance:

    When i started this diet in November last year at 17 n half stones (OMG quite ashamed now) i never dremt i would be like this now. I had already lost 2 n half on weightwatchers before my wedding.

    I found a picture last night from when i was at my heaviest and it nearly brought me to tears - i looked bloody awful!! I look back and think how the hell did i let myself get to that point??? Now though when i remember what i used to eat i know how i got there!

    I would say to anyone thinking about this then it really does change your life! I am so much more confident, my relationship with my husband is so much better (nudge, nudge, wink, wink LOL):bananalove:
    I am just so HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY!!

    I never want to go back to where i was - such a dark and depressing place :cry:
    I know i have learnt so much on this journey that i won't do it. I WON'T!!

    I am not giving up on this journey though - i am on 810 at the moment and i will gradually move up the plans, sticking rigidly to them. But i wonder if anyone else has this thought........

    "I'll just see if i can loose another couple of lbs..."

    I think it becomes sort of a challenge to set yourself to see if you can do it - just to say "yes i can" and then when you do its like whooopppeeee!! i could do it. It makes you feel so good.

    I would like to get into the late 10's so then when i do start moving up and gaining those few carb pounds :eek: i will still be under my goal.

    Minimins has been a great support for me and i love reading about other peoples experiences. Keep it up everyone. xxx
