I wouldn't say that Poppy, I did only have a 1lb loss last week after all.....
but it certainly didn't do any major damage, especially mentally
Thanks everyone, I can't quite believe that I'm in the "-5stone" club, even when I knew I was over 20stone it didn't quite register that I really had that much to lose.... great to feel it now though!

through the good and bad, the rough and smooth, it's this place and moreover, it's all you guys who keep me going, so thanks to you all. I really don't think I could have done it without your unbelievable support.

I've just looked at your albums. Inspirational pics.
As i said on there - you look like your son!
No gut hanging over the belt buckle now!
As well as looking good and feeling healthier isn't it good to feel comfortable in your clothes?
I bet you are looking forward to the summer this year aren't you?
Ribs?!?! lol I hope not, don't want to be that skinny!
I think that's actually a combination of my abs from doing sit-ups + a fat roll on top
At 14stone (196lbs) and 5'11" that'll make my BMI 27.3, which is still well above what I "should" be but I think that my general build/bone/muscle etc will account for it, plus I reckon that any less than that and I'd start to look a bit *too* thin, which I don't want at all; once I'm having some food again I'm hitting the gym to build myself up some more! but in a good (muscle) way
Still, who knows, I might get to 14 and decide another 7lbs wouldn't hurt! I just don't know, having never been anywhere near this slim (not since I was 15 years old!, nearly 9 years ago!) I haven't a clue what I'll look/feel/be like at any weight.
Every day I'm looking in the mirror getting to know this "new" me!
Well, all I can say is you look fabulous! I'm so impressed looking at your siggy pics.
I am delighted to say that I agree with you, as I now look at my fat picture and don't recognise her, and feel so normal now, like this is what I should have been - I'm thinking sometimes I even look a little thin! LOL!! What's that all about?! At other times I feel like I've still got loads more to lose, but can't believe my BMI is now 24 and if I lose any more next week I'll be 23. something! YIKES!!
I think you are right to just take it all as it comes. I bet BMI isn't quite as relevant to you and your muscle mass either - I don't know, maybe I'm talking through my ......, but all I can say is you are inspirational!
