    As some of you may know, I've struggled doing CD lately but this week I've been a good girl and have lost a brilliant 5 3/4lbs (unofficial, but I'm still happy). I also received my first weight loss related compliments today, and for the first time I've felt like there is a difference in my appearance. What do you guys think?? (Apologies for the crappy pictures, self photography isn't easy ;))

    Look at you!

    Your belly has gone dramatically and your posture looks so different!

    Does it make sense if I say you look more confident in the second pic too?

    Thanks ladies. Most of my lost inches are from my stomach and bust, the thighs have barely shifted at all, but I feel like I'm a bit more in proportion now. Today has been such a confidence boost, it almost feels like it can't be real. I can slowly feel the self esteem coming back ;)

    Thanks everyone, glad I aren't imagining the difference. Isn't it amazing what a few compliments and a good weight loss can do to your mood and self-esteem?

    Thanks Clare, I feel pretty proud of myself. I know I'm not losing as fast as others, but sticking to CD (99% of the time) even though I've been through so much and am struggling so much is a big achievement for me.

    Can't wait to be a stunning bride Ju, if I look half as good as you did on your wedding day I'd be over the moon. Just need to make sure I don't pull crazy face like the ones on these pictures on my wedding ones :)
