    We've just got back from a friend's wedding this weekend - it was truly fabulous! She looked amazing and the whole day was fantastic!

    We've been to a fair few of my friend's weddings over the last couple of years and I have to say that on Saturday I felt at my most gorgeous in as long as I can remember! I wore a dress that I bought last year (size 14) that I wanted to wear to another friend's wedding, and bought it hoping I'd slim into it - I didn't - and on that day last September I had to go to that wedding wearing something that 'just fitted', and I really hated it and myself for getting into such a pickle and letting my weight get out of control! After that wedding I joined SW on the 1st October, and this Saturday just gone I wore that very same dress and felt a million dollars in it! I felt confident, beautiful and all over gorgeous - I didn't wear tights (no need my legs don't rub together any more), I wore a strapless dress (whilst my arms need some toning they certainly aren't too bad) and it showed off my collarbones! 24 pounds down (almost halfway to target) and 23.5 inches gone (from all over) - I felt like a different person! My oldest friends all commented (they've known me since we were 8) so have seen me at all weights and sizes, and were so proud of me! I know the day was all the brides, but it was nice to be able to really enjoy and relax into it without feeling self-conscious.

    Sorry I'm rambling but I guess what I really want to say is 'thank you Slimming World' you've changed my life xxx
