    Thankyou:cool: I'm so chuffed.

    It's been an incredible journey. Wish I had done it earlier and saved myself a lot of grief.

    Huge congratulations Karion - it is people like you that inspire and encourage people like me to keep on keeping on and know that it IS possible to maintain and to keep (relatively) sane :giggle: lol

    Seriously though, what you have done is fantastic and you should be mighty proud!

    CONGRATULATIONS again! :D

    HUGE congrats honey. Soo proud of you. :D You give 'stop-starters' like me such inspiration.

    I can remember when you posted on the other site that you'd got to goal - can't believe it's 2 years ago already!

    Hope you're suitable proud of yourself honey ;)

    Awww. Thanks :)

    Started at 18st 7, and got down to 11st 5. Had a few stops and starts:eek: so took about 9 months. Then did it again 6 months later before I gave up smoking. (Damage limitation):D

    Relatively sane??? Never. How boring would that be:D

    Thanks Jules. Yep, I remember that day. Wow, time has flown! Those were the days eh.

    Cheers Mike:) We're doing okay aren't we. Hanging in there.

    You know, I shed a little tear at midnight. Nothing too dramatic, but noticed the eyes water.

    I remember when I started Cambridge. Said to DH "It soooo wont work..." Thought my metabolism was shot through with years of dieting. Was sure I'd never maintain on a normal amount of calories even if I did lose anything.

    I knew I could do the diet, as long as I didn't plateau for more than 6 weeks. That's when I had struggled with other diets previously. Don't think I plateaued for more than one week when I kept 100% :clap:

    Never thought in a million years that I would maintain:eek: Just hoped that I could have the chance to experience slimdom for a moment in my life.

    Guess it was just too good a feeling to throw away when I got there.

    Wow KD, you are truly inspiring. You tell it like it is and it sounds fab. I recognise myself in what you say, I don;t think I ever truly think I will be slim; maybe that why I am not. But you overcame those negative feelings, kept going and the rewards are all yours. Thoroughly deserved too!

    Have a happy day feeling proud of yourself, you have earnt it.

    Love

    Hiya KD

    What a fantastic achievement, well done to you & a big thank you for helping all us Minimins dieters and maintainers alike with your inspiration, knowledge & advice.

    Isn't it said that if you can keep your weight off for 2 years the odds of you staying at goal dramatically increase. Plus just think you're in a very small percentage (isn't is about 3%) of people who don't put their weight back on, a worthy acheivement.

    What a star you are

    xxxx
