    I am getting a bit fed up.

    I am 1.5 pounds shy of losing 3 stone - and it is barely making a difference in my clothes???

    I would have thought by now I would be getting back into many of my smaller clothes, but it seems the inches just are not going. :(

    Its bl**dy frustrating, as I am hanging on to this by the skin of my teeth - I am reallllllly beginning to get completely bored with the packs - even tha vast selection that I thought would keep anyone from boredom is getting to me....so I would feel so much better if I was getting in to clothes again. :(

    After having done this once for 10 months - I just dont want to be doing it again now, and am feeling annoyed that I have too. Just having a pouty-moment I guess - but its much harder.

    I don't remember how it was in 2008, but it sure seemed I got in to clothes in smaller sizes wayyyyyyy faster then I am now.

    I don;t understand how 40 pounds has not made a difference.

    <sigh>

    <grrrrr>

    And all that. lol

    I'm exactly the same BL. I've now lost over 2 stone and my trousers are feeling exaclty the same. The last time I did LL as soon as I'd bought something new it was too big for me and I had a struggle keeping up!
    Hopefully we'll just have one really good week when we'll go down two dress sizes!
    I keep being told I've lost loads of weight from my face....I'd rather it was from my a***e instead!

    Its annoying to say the least!!!

    lol Me TOO!!!!

    I decided tonight to up my exercise. I walk to and from work, but decided to add an extra one tonight so saddled up the pup and we went out for about an hour or so....I love walking this time of year, its my favourite watching the season change - so going to try and make that as much a routine as my feet will allow. Will probably pay for it, but I miss my walks, and knowing my feet will get fixed by the end of the year helps.

    ANyway - we'll do it Rach. Just like we did before, ay? :)

    BL, this is my first time round and I'm itching to get into size 18. I've been wearing size 20 for soo long. The only good thing is tops I bought last april that I couldn't wear cause the rolls were showing, are now fitting, but they are 2x. Just get me into size 18 at least! please!
    I know I just have to stick with it, it has to come off eventually. I feel your frustration that this is second time for you. I'm going to ask my LLC to measure me again at 3 months so I should see inches lost by then.

    Hang on in there girls- you KNOW it's shifting.
    It'll be so worth it. :)
