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 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?
