I wasn't going to post this, but a certain someone said to me I needed to announce I hit my goal of 11 Stone.

I have been on SS for 12 Weeks and 1 Week of 810 (and then had a bug for the last 2 days which has basically meant I have lost more than usual).

So I have now lost 54lbs - or 3 Stone 12lbs.

I set my goal at 11.1 as it was a healthy BMI for my height.

I just wanted to say thank you to all the Minimins and Minimen who have helped and supported me, read my diary and posted positive comments, trying to keep me focused.

I am in a bit of a daze as I am feeling so unwell (undercooked monkfish - don't ask) !!!! And I honestly never thought I would ever reach this milestone, weighing less than when I met my hubby, being almost 2 stone lighter than my wedding day.......

I have no idea what the future holds, presently I am a little scared off food, I have been eating on 810 and found that food isn't the be all and end all any longer, which is odd as it consumed so much of my previous life.

I can't help but think how 13 weeks is such a short space of time yet 54lbs is such a large amount of weight.

If anyone is thinking mmmm should I ? I can only say that it's a bit of a rollercoaster but the good days outweigh the bad days and at the end of the day we all came here looking for weight loss advice.

I wrote in my first post that I didn't know when my 14's became 16's, 16's became 18's.........but I do remember when my 18's dropped to 16's, my 16's dropped to 14's and now I stand (or sit rather on the computer) as a size 12 and I am loving it (apart from the stomach pains - back to the monkfish again) !!!!!

I watched so many people get to goal on my journey, never believing for one second that it could be me, always saying 'oh I could never do that' I could never get to 11 stone', but I did, thanks to my wonderfully supportive husband, my friends and my online friends on minimins.

I look at the girl on the photo weighing 14 stone 12, and look at the girl weighing 11 stone and think - is that really me ? Where did I go ????

The new me is off to a party on saturday wearing a lovely dress and oozing confidence, instead of staying at home and making an excuse - how many social occasions did I choose not to attend as my weight stopped me from feeling comfortable ?

How many opportunities have I missed because I let my weight determine what I could and couldn't do ?


In 11 days I will be off on my holidays with a promise to myself to try and be sensible and not turn to my old ways...........if in time my weight goes lower that is fine, although I am not going to try and become lighter than I need to be, I have a large frame and I am told I look just right - which is all I ever wanted.

Oh and finally a thank you to my biggest Minimin's Friend LIZZMB who has taught me so much, inspired me and kept me on the straight and narrow - showing me that CD really can and does work xxxx
