    (Hahah - always the history teacher!)

    Right, now then! (Jimmy Saville impersonations are not my strong point *cough*) I'm currently on day 267 of my weightloss journey - blimey! Seems like forever!

    A potted version of my blog (which I can't add to now as I'm a CDC) and massive thread on DH (oops) coming up:-

    Started LL on 28th October 2005 - did 88 days before I changed over to CD due to financial and flavour reasons (!) then did SS taking me up to a total of 130 days when I had to stop cos my BMI was under 25 - March 8th, I think - my CDC training day.

    Since then, I got down to my lowest weight of 10 stone 3 1/2 (I'm 5' 7") and managed to maintain it really well for a couple of months. I'm now 10 stone 13 cos I took my eye off the ball and got lazy, if I'm really honest. Still in size 12s but they're getting tighter so I would love love love to get down to 9 stone 13 - just so I can say I'm 9 stone something! lol

    So my goal is to get a stone off and keep it off! But I just find it harder to lose weight whilst eating than when I'm on SS - grrr!

    Next week may well be very tricky as I'm taking my three kids camping and won't really have access to salads much - unless I eat in the camp restaurants at 400 quid a time - well it feels like it lol.

    So when I"m back next Saturday - it'll be action stations!

    Wish me luck!

    love

    I don't know how these pictures will turn out cos I lost all my pics when my old pc went kaput, but will try to post my before and after pics. If they're too fuzzy, I'll get some more taken and scan some old fat pics - if I can bear to look at them hahaha!

    The difference is amazing, and you should be so proud of yourself. You'll be in the 9s soon enough mate ;)

    Hi Isobel,

    That is amazing...you can see how much weight you have lost between the two pictures...Where is the one of you in your mini skirt?

    We should start a photo gallery?
