    I don't normally blow my own trumpet 'cause I feel silly but today I feel fabulous.
    Have lost 40lbs in 8 months so I have lost the weight sensibly using the Slimming World plan.
    I am feeling so much better, physically and mentally. I am not embarrassed speaking to people I would normally hide from. My back, knees and ankles don't hurt any more. My skin is so much better.
    A colleague told me I looked as though I was in 6th form (I am 43!!!!).
    I just really want to say that if I can do it any one can...just takes determination..........
    I must admit I do struggle with the compliments because I am not used to them.
    It is nice looking at clothes in small range. Looking forward to Summer and wearing a nice top and skirt....normally wear trousers and over size tops......
    Good luck every one.....
    Anyway, thanks for listening. Have a lovely day
    xxxxx

    Wow that's brilliant, I didn't realise you'd lost so much. I never look at people's stats, don't know why.

    Well done, amazing:D

    Thanks every one.

    My tips that kept me going

    Seeing a pound drop each week. I was happy with a pound as I knew I needed to do this on a long term basis.

    Having my full 15 syns a day (and I'll be honest having more at times)

    Lying in bed one night watching the tele and felt my hip bone, which I hadn't felt in a while.

    Having to change my wardrobe and my boys laughing at my trousers falling around my ankles when I walk from my living room to my kitchen!

    Feeling good about myself...which I haven't done for many years.

    Using my online diary as my comfort blanket.

    I am very hard on myself but was determined that I will not break. If I go over my syns I cut back, straight away.

    I don't have any ferdubiders....Kath and Kim!!!

    Buying smaller sizes in clothes is amazing and I keep that in my mind

    And I am sure there are many more........

    xx
