    Hi ive been feeling super positive about my weight loss in recent weeks. Ive had to make a few changes in my life recently. But i didnt want it to interfere with my SW plan. I lost 5 pounds this week after staying the same the week before. So far in the last 4 weeks ive lost 12 and half pounds. Its really helped me stay happy in a time when things wernt so great. I now know im getting on with my life and i'm all the better for it. This past weekend i had to go buy new clothes for a night out. and i discovered i dropped another jeans size. the 3rd time since january. little things like that are making a big difference. becuase just a short time ago nothing fitted me, and had a hard time wearing anything that didnt scream "im over weight and trying to hide myself".
    Sorry i babbled on but im feeling good and wanted to catch the moment.
    I hope it helps to spread a bit positivity across our little SW community lol
    (hey that rhymed)
    thanks for reading :)

    Little positive changes can have such a big impact on your life! The thing with SW is you dont have to put your life on hold for it or feel it will makes things worse when you've got your own things going on. I feel totally in control of what I eat whereas before if I felt down about something my good eating habits went out the window in a second.

    Well done for your weightloss so far, you've done brilliantly! Keep up the goodwork! And you might want to work more to have the money for all the smaller clothes you'll need!! ;-)

    It really sounds like sw is doing you the world of good.. and 3 jean sizes since january is just fab. Im sure you look and feel fantastic for it, when my nanna died back in october i really struggled.. but i was determined to stick to plan and quit smoking.. because i know she would have wanted me to have carried on as normally as i could. I also found throwing myself into sw made it easier to deal with life, and it sounds like if things are a bit tough for you right now.. that its really helping having the little boosts that you get from loosing weight. I think youv done so well.. Well done :) you should be uber proud of yourself! xxxxxxxx

    Hey Andy!

    So you should be shouting from the rooftops, you have done absolutely amazing. Especially at a time where people would normally fall to pieces if they have other major things going on in there life. So give yourself a HUGE pat on the back honey! You deserve it xx
