hi annie and :welcome: to the forums! I know how you feel regarding thinking your clothes are shrinking in the wash - when I was reading your post it could have been something I had written! I started my journey at 19 stone 7lbs and lost 2 stone last year just through healthy eating. Since joining this site I have lost another stone and the weight is still coming off!

Remember you are doing this for you and no one else!
