    I was going to post this a couple of days ago but forgot.

    So as many people have noted in the past, when you lose weight very quickly some people are afraid to compliment in case you are ill or for other reasons. Therefore, sometimes you have to take what you can get.

    On about Tuesday I was in the pub (drinking sparkling water of course - not being able to smoke inside certainly helps with LL because it's the alcohol and smoking together which was the fun bit!). One of my mates said "Why do you only have jeans that are too tight or ridiculously big? Haven't you got any clothes the right size?". So I smiled, and I said "These are the same jeans.":cool:

    Awww that is great Christovee - it made me grin the biggest grin.
    What a lovely thing to keep in your memory to remind yourself of how far you have come.
    Thanks for sharing that - it gave me the warm fuzzies!
