That, after years of battling with my weight, going from 5 stone to 15, and everything in between... I have, a few minutes ago, fitted into my first pair of size 12 jeans?

I have no clue what I weigh...for the first time in my life i don't care! And there's no desire to get 'just that little bit lower'! I'm walking a half marathon on Sunday, and I KNOW I am actually physically strong enough to do it...without either fainting or running out of steam because of my weight!

Well done! It's great not caring and can be really hard to achieve!

Good luck for Sunday!

That's great - at the end of the day, weight isn't really important, it's how you feel in yourself. Well done!

Massive achievement OP well done! Its a big thing to not care what those scales say after a lifetime of obsessing over it- I know!

YANBU, well done at finally being at peace with yourself and being strong enough to do the marathon.

Thank you so much! I thought you'd all stretch about me bragging etc... I'm really not! I'm just so happy. I had to go into a sportstore to get outfits for me and DH...picked up a medium tee, and I wasn't being screamed at! ' That'll never fit, just lose a little more, don't eat from here to Sunday and you'll look fab', etc,'s quiet!
