Have now lost 40lbs and feel fabulous

#1
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

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........
