As of my weigh in yesterday i have lost 2 1/2 stone in 5 weeks and i'm absolutely ecstatic :8855: I took recent photo's yesterday just to see if i could notice the difference and also hopefully will post them when i'm feeling brave. Saying that i have updated my avatar:D I posted the same pictue on my facebook profile and i am overwhelmed by the comments from my friends and family,they were all so kind and complimentary. I just seem to have difficulty recognising the picture as me,is this odd?Am i strange? I also find it hard to accept compliments.Every time i walk past the mirror, i hardly recognise the face staring back at me?! The last time i was the weight i am now was 6 1/2 years ago when i got married :( I know i still have a long way to go,but i am not putting pressure on myself and i am taking each stone as it comes as i am frightened of failing. Is this natural behaviour?

Well done Slinky, you are doing so well. I can definitely see a difference in your avatar photo, you look great! We've lost similar amounts so far and I haven't been this weight for over 5 years either, it's great isn't it! Keep up the good work, you are doing so well. As for the compliments, if you keep losing weight the way you are you are just going to have to get used to them. A good side effect of LT!

Yay well done you. You're doing ace. It takes a while for your mind to catch up with your body...I still feel as big as I did 6.5 stone heavier.....I didn't recognise myself that much though. I was in a clothes shop walking towards a mirror (didn't realise it was a mirror) I nearly apologised for walking into myself lol
