Four weeks ago I set myself the goal of 28 lbs in 24 weeks (in other words, lose 2 stone before Christmas). I am pleased to say I am still on target - 4 weeks in, 9 lbs gone. It has not been easy but setting the goal is working for me - I find I am making more informed choices rather than thinking 'that won't hurt just this once'. This time has included 5 nights away. Definitely feeling better for it, finding I can fit into clothes that have been at the back of the wardrobe. Now, just need to fit a dress for my Grandaughter's Christening at the end of this month.
