So, today a very good friend of mine gave birth to a lovely healthy baby boy, 5lbs 5oz. Naturally as any good friend does, I visited her (along with a huge box of chocolates that I didn't taste tester, a card and a balloon.) to see her lovely new baby. As I was holding him my first thought was "I can't believe that I've lost how much he weighs in a week." And then I did more calculations. It really hit home however when I figured out that weight wise I have lost 8 newborn baby Charlie's! I started to imagine what size that is, and it really hit home. Losing 3 stone (and 3 lbs) is a really good achievement! Sure I still have quite a fair bit more to lose, but knowing that this amount of weight actually means something made me feel far better about myself! Just wanted to share this as it made me really happy.
