Been doing this 17 weeks and have lost 41lbs so far lost 2 dress sizes in trousers and 3 in tops. The compliments i get from people really keep me motivated to keep going. Yesterday a customer at my work who i hadnt seen since august asked if i was a new girl lol, ive known this customer nearly 10 years, was a great feeling. Also had my brother walk past me in the street and my best friend of 24 years didnt recognise me in a shop when i walked up to her lol. Its quite funny, as ive always been "the big girl" and slowly im losing that title, i still have a long way to go but ive noticed changes in my confidence as well, whereas in the past ive never really been a girly girl, i know like to try new things with my hair and own dresses lol. Starting to think i spent many years hiding behind my tomboy facade. Finally starting to find me the real me.
I guess what im saying is that it is possible, the long game and hard work is so worth it, stay strong everyone. We can do this
