    I've been having a really crappy week CD-wise, been stopping and starting and can't seem to find motivation. However, I just had my little boy weighed (he's 2) and he's 32lb - the exact amount of weight I've lost so far! And believe me, he is soooo heavy to carry. I can't believe I carried an extra child's-worth of weight around with me! Made me feel a lot better. :)

    Well done you :) Amazing losses and into the healthy weight range! :D
    I remember a similar experience myself- I'd taken myslelf over the 3 stone loss and taken myself out of the obese weight range. My CDC pointed out that it was the equivalent weight loss to my son! I sat and cried in front of my CDC I was so overwhelmed. Sounds funny now lol but really brought home how much I'd lost :)

    Wow, that is amazing!!!
    And I was impressed with myself as in two weeks I lost 10lbs which is the exact weight of my month old nephew, and holding him yesterday was quite amazing! But that is nothing compared to a two year old!!!! :)

    Well done all of you, what a great way of thinking of your weight loss, better than bags of sugar!!

    I like to load my scales up with uni books/tins,bottles of juice until I get my weight shed so far, then I pick up (barely) and wonder how I managed to carry that about all day. Every day. For 6 years.
