    My trigger for joining SW when I did was a family wedding coming up in July, I really wanted to lose weight so I could wear something nice. There will be lots of beautiful (thin) young ladies there and I didn't want to be the big fat mother of the bridesmaid! My aim was to get down to a size 16, what I was when I got married, I was a 20 when I joined.

    The wedding is in 3 weeks. Today I bought a gorgeous dress from Joules and it's a 16, it fits and looks amazing. I'm so happy!!!

    I've been following SW for 20 weeks, this week I'm hoping to get my 3.5 stone award, only 1 lb away last week. If I lose 2 lbs that will be 50 lbs lost!!!

    I'd like to lose another 3 stone so I'm not done yet. How can you not love slimming world? What a journey!

    Oh wow, that's amazing! Well done!! :D I did similar to fit into my prom dress when I lost weight through SW before. I think buying smaller sizes and feeling great in them is even more important than what the scales say anyway.. Have a great time!

    Imagine what a 14 will feel like!!! I don't think I've been a size 14 since I was 14! Can't even imagine any smaller...

    Lost 3 lbs this week so got my 3.5 stone, I've lost 50 lbs for a 'half century' and another lb to boot. Wonder if I can get to 4 stone before the wedding, 2 more weigh ins, 5 lbs to go... it's possible!!

    And I had free week because it's 10 weeks since I got my club 10!

    I ♥ slimming world!!!
