I've just found a spreadsheet on my computer showing how I've taken the 'scenic route' with Slimming World. I first joined on 21 May 2008 which is just under 20 months ago so by now I should have well and truely got to the maintaining stage - except here I am with 7 stone or so to lose. BUT I can see from that sheet that I've lost 3 stone 5.5lb. Inch wise nothing from my bust, 3 from my waist and two from my hips. Probably more importantly my BMI has dropped from 48.3 to 40.09 so only a smidgen to go to drop from clinically obese to obese - another 6lb. OK, that sounds a little kooky to get excited about but at least it's going in the right direction. SO instead of getting grumpy with myself for having taken so long, I'm going to look at what I have achieved and use that as insporation to get my finger out!
