I'm sick of being paranoid and wondering what people think of me. The word that will describe me when I have lost the weight i need to loose will be. FREE.

COMPLETELY FREE.
I cannot wait!

So another week has gone by and I lost another 4lbs this weigh in, so low due to the fact im feeling a little backed up :p But my counsellor then did my measurements and I was so pleased with the results from only 2 weeks.

Waist - 8 and a half inches gone

Hips- 2 inches gone

Chest/Bust- 4 inches gone

Arms- 2 inches gone

Thighs- 3 inches gone.

Feeling very happy and ready for another week, thanks everyone for your much needed support :) I feel like im finally taking action and becoming the person I always wanted to be inside and out. I truly feel like i've hit my stride, not hungry or that bothered about food anymore (which is making my life a hell of a lot easier)
I so enjoy reading all your diarys which is what I am going to go and do now, NOSYNOSY ;)

Much love all my (SOON TO BE SKINNIES)
