    Well, tomorrow is the big day. I'm picking up my sister from the airport at 8.15 am. She lives in Australia and hasn't seen me since February when my Dad died.

    It's going to be emotional for all sorts of reasons but being more than half the weight I used to be is going to be the biggest one I should imagine.

    I can't wait to see her face!!

    she knows I've been on a diet yes but has no idea just how much I've lost.
    Let's face it, I've been on a diet for years so she probably thinks I'm a few lbs lighter!

    Hang on a second! She has no idea how much weight you have lost, and lets face it Rachel, you do look like a new woman! Your poor sister is going to think no one has come to pick her up!! You may want to consider a big piece of cardboard with her name on it so she knows someone has come for her, even if she doesn't recognise who it is!

    Oh, and when she DOES realise, I think she's going to be lost for words! You may want to take tissues with you too!!

    Have fun Rachel!

    well it was all very emotional-when she eventually recognised me! She looked straight past me and because it was busy and I couldn't get to her she'd started walking to the exit before she recognised my voice, turned round and still didn't recognise the crazy woman waving at her!
    She's pretty amazed at my transformation and is being very complimentary...let's see how long that'll last when I start trying on her clothes lol xx

    Awwww, how lovely! I bet you feel so proud of yourself.

    Have a lovely time with your sister, and don't forget to give her the clothes back when you've tried them on LOL! You never know, they might end up being too big for you.
