    I am not being vain here, but I just had to post this...

    I went to the loo this morning (at work)...now, I never look at the mirror as I have always been frightened of what is staring back at me. Oh, I have done it countless times and just wanted to cry coming out of the loos!

    Well, today, I looked.....I have to admit I didnt recongnise myself. My face is drawn, but not unatractively..and I turned to the side and I look kinda skinny...as skinny as I can ever remember being.

    I felt wonderful, I really did and just had to phone my wee hubby and tell him!! haha..he calls me his skinny woman now anyway...

    Gosh, the diet is the best ever - boy is it tough, tough, tough in places, but I would never ever change these 10 weeks for all the money in the World.

    Just wanted to share this with you all and for those at the start of the LT Journey...stick with it; it really does reward you and this feeling is euphoric!

    Take care and have a great week

    THANKS HUN!!!
    I know, it has taken a long time, but I think we are always more critical of ourselves than others and it takes a while to just register...

    i cant wait til i am best friends with the reflection, like you we have only recently been reintroduced!

    everyone says you have to love yourself, i never understood how one could, but i'm starting to get it, and your post just made me think, you know what it's going to happen! i'm gonna like it some day!

    you're doing amazingly and it's true, you are an inspiration!!

    That's lovely, thanks JustForMe...I had so many inspirations when I started that I never though I would ever get to this point. You will do it - just stay focussed and think time is relevant and one more day with LT is one less day being fat! I have always, always looked forward and NEVER in all my years of dieting thought like that!

    Again, thanks for your words.!

    Hi Sarah!
    Gosh, you are an inspiration to me too!!!!! Well, I have only a few weeks left now; 8/8 I re-feed. Originally I wanted 3 weeks, but my hubby has booked the holiday now for 21/8, so I will have 2 full weeks. I dont intend to put anything on on holiday as I will have a shake once a day and have fruit/yoghurt for breakfast and a meal at night. Thankfully we dont drink and my hubby has been given strict instructions to tell all the family to not put any oil in the food, etc...and I am going to eat fish (which I hated, but now crave)!!

    Once I come back I do intend to come back until I hit my goal. Original goal 10 stone, but to be honest I would like to be 9.5 if not less, but that was too much of a dream back then..now, I think I might just go for it....but my biggest weight is around my middle and if I could get rid of that and my big boobs, I am sure I would be about half a stone ligher!! So, hence why the vibro plate comes into play!!

    Sorry, I have written a novel here..I think my fingers are just running away with them.

    I know I wouldnt have managed this far if it wasnt for this forum, and I say that hand on heart! I cant wait to come on each morning - dare I say before I even start working!!! I need my fix and I jump on all day as I need to know everyone is doing ok and just to get more inspiration.

    You are doing really well to Sarah, and take my hat off to you as you are always so positive and always looking to the future!

    Again, thanks for your lovely words...gosh, I have been inundated with lovely words and it takes my breath away!

    lovely post (as so often!), it's great to hear compliments from others - but sometimes you just have to notice the changes yourself to be blown away by what fab work you've done ;)

    almost there!!

    I read this and smiled you do truly deserve to be happy with what you see you have earned it, the dedication and commitment is paying off.

    But to see that for yourself is the best feeling. As I think we have said before our starting weights and weights now are similar and I went passed a mirror while out the other day, sort of knew it was me but went back to check, it was the first time I thought "hey where have I gone? thats not me" THEN off to the shops I went (something I dreaded) .xxx
