    hi all,

    i feel a bit nervous about doing a success story, cause what i've done is nothing compared to that of others. but regardless...

    all my life i've been a big girl but that got out of control in the last few years. i was unhappy and the weight just piled on. i tried diet upon diet, cambridge, exante, sw, ww...and just couldn't get into the right frame of mind.

    ending my relationship changed my mindset to a brighter one and i've been calorie counting and gym going ever since.

    in the middle of november i went to the doctor and was weighed at 296lb.
    i went back last week and weighed in on their scales at 244.5lb.

    i know i'm not there yet, lord knows i still have a long path ahead. but i just can't believe that i'm getting there. i don't think in my heart i ever thought i'd be watching the numbers go down like they are. minis is fabulous for support, i don't think i'd be sat here in SIZE 16 :eek: jeans today without the support of my lovely mini friends.

    :) x

    Colly, I am hovering on fitting back into my size 18s again I was a size 18 but sometimes a 20. I tried some jeans on and fit into a 18 it feels really good doesn't it! My tops are a little tight sometimes still though but I'm just remembering the times where the 18s firmly fit and it's giving me motivation. You'll be there in no time and well done again :)
