Hello all, I havnt posted for a bit but I've started at slimming world 2 weeks ago, and have lost 5 lbs so far. Years ago,( 1970s) I went to a club run by the Slimmer magazine that was out at the time, and the leader there had made a rule that, if a person did not lose at least 5 lbs in four weeks, they would be suspended for a month. The thinking was that anyone who is really trying, can lose that much, and those who didn't, were suspended to make way for others who were serious about loss.
I'm not sure if she was right, but its always stuck in my mind, so I'm really pleased I've achieved my personal goal of at least 5 lbs.
Having yo yo'd with weight all my life, I wondered if other members could pinpoint a time in their life when they realised they had truly lost weight??
I remember in 1987, having lost a few stone, I was amazed to be able to put my arm up inside the neck of my sons "EMU" puppet toy! Sadly emu toy has now left the earth along with Rod Hull, but ill always remember the wonderful feeling of fitting into a previously too small space.
