    Well after 16 weeks I finally arranged to meet my friends for coffee yesterday. They have not seen me since before Christmas - I was avoiding seeing people until I had finished my 100 days, thankfully they were still willing to be my friends!:eek: :eek:

    Anyway, I got such a fantastic reaction, I feel on a high, jaws literally dropped it was soooooo good. Altogether I have lost about 4 stone and still want to loose another 2 stone, so am on development but I needed to get a reaction like this to spur me on and boy has it, I feel so positive and happy.

    Some friends commented that it was good to have the old me back, not just my appearance, but how positive and confident I was.

    I bought loads of new clothes to celebrate and am now officially size 12 at the bottom & size 10 on top (SIZE 10 YIPPEEEEEEEE) I do always carry most of my weight on my bum & legs so hopefully losing this last 2 stone will get to a nice size 10 all over.

    It is weird though, I still cannot see it in the mirror - which is why the comments mean so much and help more than anyone could know.

    Just wanted to share this news with you all.:D :D :D :D

    It's great having the jaws drop isn't it? I popped in to see my old work colleagues yesterday and they were dumbstruck!
