    I have just realised this morning that I have maintained my weight loss for 10 months - so what? you might say.......
    well;
    It's exactly the same amount of time I was on abstinence.
    Such a short time to to transform my life.
    I'd like to thank everyone on here for your support. I didn't discover Minimins
    until I was well into Foundation.
    Thank you especially to BL for welcoming me here as well as being a true buddy and such an honest and genuine person.
    Thank God for bringing you here.
    Do these things all come together by chance or does fate play a part?
    I know which one I believe.
    Thanks especially to Mini, invisible Pierce, ISIS, Porgeous who was a particular inspiration in my ealy days , KD, everyone else on the Before and After pics thread who made me realise it was possible.
    To those who think it's an impossible mountain to climb - stick with it. It is soooo worth it.
    I'm going to stop now. This is turning into an Oscar acceptance speech and I'm feeling emotional. xxx

    Splenda! Well done on your maintenance thus far, you continue to be a huge inspiration to the rest of us; not just by your achievement, but also the kind words of wisdom you share with us all.
    You always have some wonderful tricks up your sleeve, and a huge spark for creativity! It really shows within even this - rather bland - digital domain.

    Thank you for all the continued support you give the rest of us LL's and the forum!

    SB You are a very special lady. Huge congratulations on your success in reaching goal and turning your life around. I aim to follow in your footsteps :)

    Bake your cake - one egg, two ozs wholemeal flour, 2ozs marg, 2ozs splenda and blend, blend, blend, not forgetting a large dash of the inspiration you have in abundance! Pour into a muffin tin so you can enjoy the whole thing and cook slowly for the rest of your life :).

    Well all I can say SB is if you don't deserve a cake - who does! If it's a big one - share it, if it's a small one - keep it to yourself and enjoy, well enjoy anyway!!

    I'm new - you are an inspiration, we need you to give us hope for the end of the tunnel! Salli x :clap:

    Oooh, thank you guys for all your kind words. I didn't make a cake, trying to break the old reflex celebratory foody
    things. :thankyou:
    Instead I've had a busy day tidying up my garden ready for winter.
    I did cook a roast pork dinner for everyone else and had hot savoury quinoa
    with home made vegetable curry myself. Feeling full and farty now! :kissass::rotflmao:

    Well done SB!
    You are one of the biggest inspirations on this site for us new starters.
    I cannot believe that you change your life around in such a short space of time on LL it is amazing really.
    You look a completely different person and from what you say you obviously feel like a happier one.
    Love to you, take care
