(hopefully this works). The picture of me at my brother's wedding August 2008 that showed me once and for all that I needed to do something. So in December 2008, I joined Slimming World, and by the time my other brother got married in August 2009 (my first main target date) - i was looking more like: Now, 9 or so months later and still going and still loosing (13.5st so far, another 8lbs to go i think): It's been an odd journey though. and the amount of times I've had comments about how much I've lost, and not been able to see it myself, that I've produced various collages of pics as I've gone along - just to remind myself how much I have changed when I have the doubts. .
