    Hi there
    just wondering if anyof you have things that 'help'/motivate you?

    I have a pandora charm bracelet and when I started LL I took all the charms off it. Im going to put them back on - but only when i lose 4lbs ( i have 2 back on now)

    I've also got a terramudi pot which I'm putting every £2 coin I get in. I can't get them out as you have to break the pot so I reckon by summer I will hve quite a stash to spend on all my new clothes.

    anyone else?

    I think the most inspiring thing for me is that I will be able to wear a saree once I reach my goal weight. A saree is a beautiful outfit which does show a lot of skin, but at the same time is a very elegant outfit.

    Not spending all my money on junky foodstuffs and taxi's as I was too unfit to walk has saved me a lot of cash, and now I have a managable budget for LL which will become my food budget post-LL, I have been able to confidently get myself a mortgage and buy my first home (well, a flat but it'll still be my home :D )

    I know that if I go back to spending that much money on food, I'll struggle to make my repayments and have to miss out on other things, such as train tickets to London to see my girlfriend.

    Oh and yeah, she is my biggest inspiration. Wanna look good as I can for her! :)

    A whole draw of lovely underwear I bought just after my last big loss for my Honeymoon, some Wrangler jeans and a suede Jerry Webber jacket!!!

    That and the fact that I feel so much better, maybe I can come off the heart pills and that my bum won't follow me into the room about 5 minutes later!

    My 2 motivations are going to new zealand at the end of May and I really want to be a normal weight for that loooong flight, it'll make it less uncomfortable I think.
    And the second, I bought 2 stunning size 10 dresses that I want to fit into by then!

    Size 12 Jeans hanging on my door.

    I have 13 goals - and am going to buy a treat at every one. (eg - Getting into overweight category, losing half a stone I bought a bargain pair of heel when I don't have the wieght!)

    Flordia in May/June time. And to be able to enjoy myself, not worry about my weight, knowing I don't HAVE to gorge JUST because I'm on holiday..

    And not getting home, getting really excited about getting films developed and to look at the holiday pictures in tears at how much I hate the way I look.

    I want tears of joy!

    Oh - also, my scrapbook - I'm hoping the next few weeks of pictures will show me enough difference to start really helping me on those days I feel like poo.
