I have so far lost 51lb and still have quite a bit to lose but I was considering hosting a "Look what I did!" party when I reach my target so I can show all my friends and family my acheivement. I have many friends that I stay in touch with but rarely see so they don't see the results of my hard work and the ones I see all the time don't notice my losses as it is so gradual. I would love to gather them all with a load of before/during pictures so they can help me celebrate my success (when I get there!)

Does this sound to sickening and exhibitiony (I don't usually have a lot of confidence) or would it be a good idea?

thanks guys, I really want to but I wanted to get other points of view. I am a party planner so I will make any excuse to have a party! It won't be for a long while yet as I have a while to go before I am 'there' but that just gives me more time to make sure the party will be great!

4 Years in June so it's been slow progress. The party would be in Bristol but I would love to have some Minimins support there!

I think it is a fantastic idea ... make up for all the hard work and occasions you've had to miss or be good at. Well done on your WL.

Party is a fab idea - I'm sure you'll surprise quite a few people with how well you've shrunk!!

That's very true Ruthy, it would be very embarrassing to put it all back on after showing it off like that!

Ok, well I have provisionally set a date for the party, 4th October this year. I know i won't have reached my ultimate target by then (which I have reset) but If I can shift 2 stone I should be able to fit nicely into the lovely slinky size 12 dress I have and plan to wear for it.

One problem, usually when I set goals for myself I tend to go in the OTHER direction! I will need loads of support to get this weight off if I am to stick to this date.

Should I have not set a date yet?

You have left yourself plenty of time to slim into your slinky size 12 so I am sure you will be fine - as for needing lots of support I cannot think of a better place to get this than minimins :p.

Maybe you could start your own slinky size 12 thread to track your progress?
