    well its happened the target i set myself all the weeks ago has appeared today, well its been appearing ont he scales for the last few days but assumed it would not be there on WI day as is often the case. SO thats 6 1/2 stone gone and i probaly weigh the lightest i have in my adult life ! if i am honest i am struggling mentaly with the change a bit pick up clothes that look tiny to me and they are to large guess over a decade or so of seing x,xx or xxx infront of the size labels has affected me. so what now well i am think i am going to stick with this weight for at least the next 6 months to let mind and body catch up, may drop a few pounds below it from training etc to give myself wiggle room but keep it as a upper limit hard to make decisons when in the unknown.

    Congratulations, its a great feeling isnt it, it really took me a while to get use to the fact I had lost so much weight so quickly and the shopping felt well weird, but you will soon get use to it.

    Fantastic Andy, well done mate. I know what you mean about clothes as well, it takes a while to get your head around that, to this day I always seem to pick the larger ones first, before Colleen tells me to put it back. LOL.
