    Hey all - sorry I haven't posted or update much this week, but have been very busy.

    Anyway, have just got back from my second RtM meeting and...... not only did I lose 4 lbs!!!! :bliss::bliss:

    BUT...... I have a healthy BMI at last!! I am normal!

    I have had no loss for the last four weeks.... partly due to an agreed break at Christmas, but otherwise not really sure why. It was getting frustrating, as I was so close to goal and started to feel like I was never gonna get there. I am more that happy with my size and shape (well ok if I am honest my thighs could be a bit more svelte, but who doesn't have one problem area?) But the fact that I was still technically overweight really bothered me - so its a HUGE milestone for me.

    Next one is losing exactly ten stones.... and I only have to lose another 2lbs, so fingers crossed I could be celebrating again next week if I am a very good girl!

    Thanks everyone for all your support etc, and I hope those of you who are just starting your journey can take inspiration from the fact that your dreams really can come true if you stay focused!

    Thanks everyone for the lovely comments!

    My before and afters are in the last few pages of the Success Stories before and after thread. They are not the best pics to be honest, so will dig out some more and re-post.

    I started LL on 16th of May last year - so took about 7 and half months and am now on week 2 of Route to Management, which so far is a very well designed programme.

    Thanks again everyone!

    Thanks guys! You are really upping my mood today as I am sat inside working when it is gorgeous out there!

    I hope I can be an inspiration to anyone who needs it - I know I needed to hear the stories of those who had been successful to keep me going through the harder times.

    But all I did was stick to the programme, it works, don't lapse - get your head down and get it done, the sooner you do the sooner you can enjoy the benefits! I guess my other advice would be to try not to think about the end goal too much, and enjoy the milestones along the way. The great thing about LL is that your body changes so quickly, and so dramatically - enjoy every stage!

    Also - drinking my old bodyweight in water helped a lot I am sure!!

    Good luck everyone,

    Leesy

    You are totally an inspiration to me, some of your comments have really kept me going, and I am reading your RTM posts with great interest for when I am there.

    You have done fabulously and I am really chuffed for you.
