    Hi everyone, just wanted to share how happy I am. You all know I have tons and tons still to lose but this week on holiday I discovered how much of a difference just 4 stones make. I actually went for a walk lol, I know that isn't very exciting but I kind of felt like a normal person. Matt and I went childfree for a few days to celebrate our anniversary and last night on our final evening I told him I wanted to go for a walk along the beach. Just a few weeks ago I couldn't manage the walk to the end of my road. I still couldn't manage a very long walk but the difference was that I wanted to do it and was going to push myself as far as I could go. We spent a lovely hour or so sitting at the end of the pier thing having a cuddle and it was the first time I've felt normal for many years. The day before our friend took us for a wander around York, I haven't been into a town centre for years. I was exhausted by the time we got back to the car but I somehow managed! I just can't imagine how fun and exciting life will be once I am a normal weight.:D

    I just do red and green on SW. Generally alternate it day by day but every couple of weeks I'll do a whole red or green week. I haven't found EE to work so well for me but it's probably just my own fault.:eek:

    Hi Tanny yes I do seem to have my biggest losses on an all green week but not every time. In fact the first whole green week I did I lost 9lbs so decided to do it again, the following I only lost 1/2.:sigh:, It seems to work better if I do all green maybe once a month. I did it last week and had a big loss after some really rubbish weigh in's doing mixed weeks so I think perhaps it works like a good boost. All red weeks have given some decent losses too, I know alot of people find red seems to work well. It's just so expensive! It's very strange though, our bodies can be so weird. Looking back on the all green weeks I'm not sure whether it's the food or the amount I eat though. It may just be because I'm eating quite a bit more so my body relaxes and lets the weight go. My friend swears by kick starting his body one day a week (he doesn't do SW just a very low calorie diet I think) and he says that one night a week of pizza or curry seems to help his body for the rest of the week. I'm not suggesting we do that on SW but I think the green works in a similar way. IF I were to count calories doing a green week I'm sure I'd be eating far more than when I do red. Hope that makes sense.:)

    Hi Laura. Just wanted to say you are doing fantastic. I find everyone on here so so inspiring. I have 9 stone to lose and i know it can be so daunting. But the fact that you were able to go for a walk and have a cuddle must have made you feel so proud. Well done hun.x

    Thanks everyone for being so happy for me and supportive. It was quite a milestone and I knew you'd understand how much it means to me. Funny so many people should live in York on minimins.:)

    While on holiday I weighed at a different SW group (and met a fellow miniminer there!) to keep me on track and when it said I'd lost 11lbs I was so pleased but sure it was the scales being different. Well today I weighed at the gym to check, they're always a little different there and weigh me a bit heavier but they agreed, in fact they put me at 1.5lbs lighter than on Tuesday.:eek: I'm not going to worry now about gaining on Tuesday when I weigh, it's been at the back of my mind all week that I'd have a huge gain when I got on my normal scales at group.

    Finally my rubbish losses have gone, for now at least!


    Hug's for you all x
