Hiya my lovelies,

Yesterday was a very bad TOTM episode. I don't usually get a period so this time it must have ripped my insides out as I have never seen my tummy so flat.

Here is a list of what has changed for me since starting LT.

  1. Husband says I used to snore occasionally but not any more.
  2. Shoe size went from 6 to 5 and I can wear long boots.
  3. My face is much much smaller.
  4. I have a flat tummy and no bloating.
  5. I went from a size 18 to 14.
  6. Had a period which I think cleaned me out.
  7. I can sit down in any position.
  8. I look in the mirror and I like what I see. Also admire myself when I catch a glimps on shop windows.
  9. My legs look very slim instead of looking like a barrel.
  10. When my husband cuddles me I dissapeare in his arms, not like before when it felt awkward.
  11. I could always find large tops to wear but never any bottoms, but now I just pick up the size 14 and it fits.
Last night I got up in the middle of the night and tried on this size 14 skinny jeans that was a bit too tight. It fit so good and comfortable that I nearly cried. My husband just smiled from his bed at his weird wife that is trying on clothes in the dark hahahahahha.

I was very happy last night and this morning. I am getting weighed on saturday. I know I must have put on weight on top of my 70kg but after restarting and doing LT for over a week I am sure I will be below 70kg's.

I would be very happy to hear anyones list of things that has changed for them.

Thank you all for being here and supporting me as there is no way I could have felt happy without you all.

Awww what a lovely post Jesi and gratz on feeling so good. I know what you mean about good it feels to be losing weight and so far my list of changes are:

1. My feet too seem to be shrinking from a 6 to 5.
2. My face is so much less round than it used to be - I have these weird lumps of something hard appearing in the middle of my cheeks - they must be cheekbones !!! lol
3. My feet are not swollen anymore.
4. I can walk and talk at the same time.
5. I can walk up the stairs at work without needing oxygen at the top !
6. My clothes are so loose I keep losing my skirts.
7. My tummy no longer touches the steering wheel in the car - I fit my fist in the gap now :D and will probably have to move the seat forward soon.
8. My energy levels have risen and I don't feel sluggish.
9. I think that my thoughts etc in my head are not so sluggish either - I seem to be thinking a lot quicker - though am not sure if this is psychological or not.
10. I feel great and excited at losing so much weight.
11. Friends and family are totally amazed at my willpower and determination - I am sure that most did not believe I could do this.

Like you a lot of the success comes down to the support and advice from everyone on here. I am sure that this forum helps with at least half the battle and gives us the encouragement to continue.

Glad to hear you're doing well & are feeling so good!! I totally cried a bit when I got into my skinny jeans too, haha ;-)

Goood things:

1. Having the boy (what do I call someone I'm not actually in a relationship with?) pick me up effortlessly.

2. Enjoying stepping out of the house in the morning because I look good.

3. Making plans again because I don't feel restricted by my size!

4. Discovering the joys of clothes shopping all over again.

5. Sitting cross-legged at my computer (or just being able to sit in any position I want, like you, Jesi).

6. Feeling like I'm on a level playing field with everyone else.

I'm tired & can't come up with more exciting ones, haha ;-)

Have a long way to go but what gives me heart is:
1)I fit more comfortably in theatre and cinema seats. Don't feel so wedged in anymore.
2)My face is starting to regain its shape.
3)Clothes are starting to feel much loser. A blouse today is positively swimming on me.
4)Was able to easily do a pedicure the other night.
5)Have lots more energy.
6)My skin is glowing.
7)Just feel in control again. I had lost it for so long.

This just shows that it does not matter how long you have been doing LT for but that you can start feeling changes even in your first week. Reading these helps me see what I have achieved and what used to make me sad.

wow Sarahlou, most of those should be on my list too.

When reading our lists it makes me feel sooo good, just seeing all of those obsticles our weight caused us makes me sad and happy. Above all it makes me more motivated. Well done to us!!!
