firstly measure yourself everywhere, including arms, thighs knees etc, set yourself mini targets, ( 5% body fat lost) then half a stone is a mile stone. etc etc.
i have jubilation every 2 weeks or so for hitting a target, todays target is 4 and a half stone!! Woop!! my next target is hitting 10 stone ( which is only 1 and a half pounds away!)
last week i took my measurements and found my thighs half a inch slimmer too, so honestly i find i am always motivated because sometimes its not just the weight lost its about toning. since i am working out, running and doing weights, some of my fat is turning into muscle, so i have to allow that the scales are not the only thing to drive me.
personally as i have hit each target i have felt sometimes differently about my shape than i had hoped. i am quite happy with my size now. just some tweeking on my legs and toning my abs and ill be done. however i am quote astonished by how toned my top half is and people comment on it, something i didnt ever set out to achieve but im glad i did!, so the key thing is, play it all by ear, how you feel , how you look, its not what the scales say!
good luck

hi fellow brides to be! I'm Dominique, 22 and I'm getting married in September and my goal is to be a size 14 (currently 18/20) by then - i'm a naturally curvy shape so any smaller I'd look ill and my fiance would hate it! I've been on the Cambridge Diet for 6 days now and I weighed myself this morning and I've lost my first stone so with any luck by September I'll be at my goal weight!
What diet are you on Anna? x
