Well, this morning I had my fourth weigh in, and, after a disastrous week last week where I put on 3lb, I have lost 5lb this week. Making it 15lb in total in four week, so I have finally gone over the first stone mark.
I hope it won't be long now until people start to notice that I am losing weight, now that will give me the motivation that I need.
A whole stone - that is fabulous . What differences are you noticing? Remember some people won't comment on it, in case they are putting their foot in it. If I were you, the next time someone asks "How are you?", tell them about losing the weight and how positive you are feeling and that way, you are sure to get some really good RL feedback.
Thanks everyone, Katie, I've noticed that a few of my clothes are feeling looser, though I am in between stages at the minute, too big for one size and too small for the other.
Vict17, no, unfortunately I'm not near target, I have another 9 stone to go.
Titania, I don't think I'm looking fab at the minute, but, I am feeling a bit better, and since I cut out the 2 bottles of wine a night I am certainly sleeping much better and my skin tone has improved dramitically.
Bubbles - have been watching your thread and you hepled me decide to finally do something about my weight so I have been healthy eating for 3 weeks now and have lost 13lbs - I also have a good deal to lose - another 7 stone to go!
Thanks for motivating me! I have lost weight twice before and used to eat really well but things had got out of control for the last few years after my last ds.
Dont say I am on a diet just going back to how I used to eat and that this will be a permanent change for me and I feel SO much better. I will keep checking your weigh ins - good on you so far - I know how tough it is to start when the amount you have to lose feels so impossible.
Taramac, thanks for the compliment saying I motivated you. I only mention the word diet on here, NEVER in front of the kids. When they offer me sweets etc i always say no thanks my tummy is full. They never see me get weighed either.
Well done bubbles! That is fantastic! I hope I can be like you and put my bad week behind me. I have been ok today so am hoping for a good week this week!
Its hard when you gain, but you have done so well and lost 5lbs straight after - brilliant!
