Week 54

Hi everyone :-)

Sorry I'm late posting, I have been so busy with my wedding planning and with my sister's dress fitting for her wedding which I went to yesterday which was just amazing :-) She looked beautiful in her dress and to see her face beaming with pure happiness was just a beautiful picture :-)

I had selected a song for my wedding which is just 4 weeks away now and I love the song, but after scrolling through the wedding song selection I have found one which I could play forever more and is just so beautiful it almost had me in tiers :-) which I think it will on the day. I just had to share this with you all today I hope you enjoy listening to it. I will begin my walk on minute 2 of the song and as I walk down the isle I will be taking that next step on my journey where two become one and get married. I feel so happy right now and so blessed words can't express how I feel inside :-) Please have a listen to it

This week I have maintained so I remain 10 stone 10 lbs which I am still beaming about :-) for me to have made it this far is phenomenal and I find myself in a place which I only dreamed of reaching and made that dream my reality, my dream has come true and I am so happy that I got to share this with all you lovely guys and girls. I bought myself another size 10 dress whilst out shopping with my sister and when I got it home and tried it on the person looking back at me is in awe of herself and what she has achieved. I've changed my life for the better and am ready to begin a new chapter as a wife. Wow did I just say that :-)

When I close my eyes whilst listening to this beautiful piece of music it reminds me of the joy I feel inside

Have a great week everyone :-)

  • Hi Traff,

    sounds like you have had a fab day with your sister, times like that are so precious😃

    Your post radiates the happiness you are feeling and is a joy to read.

    Well done on maintaining you are starting the hardest part of the weight loss journey I know. Maintaining is something I've never managed, but I know you will😃

    Love the piece of music you have chosen, it's really nice, even Mr F came to see what I was listening to !! Lol

    Have a lovey week


  • Hi floss and thank you :-) you got what I am trying to express in this post and I really like that so thank you :-) it's just pure joy and pure happiness from inside out and I'm glad Mr F came to have a listen, it's just The most beautiful piece of music and defo the one for both of us on the day. Mr T doesn't even know what I have chosen yet LOL, but I know he will just love it :-)

    Both me and my sister are two of the happiest women right now :-) :-)

    Off out now to see what else I can add to my new wardrobe. Have a wonderful week flossie and thank you for your continued support

  • Hi Trafford1,

    I am enjoying listening to your beautiful choice of music (Pachelbel's Canon in D), and it is really lovely! Great choice! It will make everyone feel very emotional on the day, I am sure, as I feel emotional just listening to it now! :-)

    Many Congratulations on so many happy events that are happening for you this year Trafford1 - you have worked so hard and achieved so much. But you've done it with great enthusiasm and your posts have consistently exuded much joy and have helped many people to keep going - including myself, so thank you so much!

    Fantastic to hear you're holding on to all the 10's - 10 stone 10 pounds; your new size 10 dress; well done for maintaining your weight this week.

    It's lovely to hear you're so happy and beaming with joy, and I think that thoughts of your dress and Wedding cake etc must be affecting you too - as you spoke of 'tiers' of joy - which definitely brings up visions of cake layers to me - rather than 'tears' of the wet variety.

    I'm sure there will both at your Wedding, tears of joy and tiers of Wedding cake - both will be lovely, and most importantly you will be a Beautiful Bride - and your Groom and future husband is a very lucky man! :-)

    Wishing you a great week ahead Trafford1.

  • Lowcal my spellings are terrible aren't they :-) Your words are so wonderful and so inspiring and I almost cried just reading your reply. Your such a wonderful person and I thank you for every comment and every kind word you have ever said to me. Now I'm getting emotional just typing this reply.....

    You can tell I am just so happy right now and it's just such an amazing feeling and to be able to share this with you today, well that makes me happy too.

    This past year of my life has been full of highs and great achievements and I can honestly say that I am glad to be part of this community and to receive such positive responses to all of my posts and receive such great support keeps me going. Thank you so very much :-)

  • It is all so exciting. I wish you so well. Xxx

  • Thank you Aqua :-)

  • Looking forward to those wedding photos.

  • So am I can't wait to share with you :-)

  • Lovely song and lovely post. You have done amazingly well and will look stunning on your wedding day I am sure.

    Not long now - I do hope you will share a photo with us.


  • Thank you sueper and I will most definitely be sharing a photo with you :-) I can't wait

  • Lovely music and lovely post - you are clearly having the time of your life. Well deserved and really inspiring.

  • Thank you Gonti :-) it's been a wonderful week and that piece of music was just the icing on the cake.

    It's amazing just how you can turn your life around in such a short space of time. I haven't once felt as though I I've been dragging my feet. I've just run towards a better future and now I'm sitting on top of the world :-)

  • I love Pachelbel's Canon in D too. But I haven't heard it for years. What a great, timeless choice Trafford1. Hope you'll really treasure these days of preparation and being surrounded by the people you love. It's great to hear that in the meantime you're maintaining your excellent new weight and even buying size 10 dresses - 10 seems to be your lucky number at the moment :)

    I know you're not resting on your laurels, as I know from my own experience that it takes a lot of effort to stay the same weight, having been in the 10s for 4 months now. In fact you did three 10ks last week, or was it more than that? So I hope you're finding a balance between exercising and making time for your wedding preparations etc.

    I'm very excited for you T1. Have an excellent week :)

  • Thank you so much Ruth and I too love this piece of music. It's as though it describes how I feel and every emotion comes out when I hear this. It's beautiful :-)

    This new weight and just being firmly in the 10's makes me so proud and 10 does appear to be my lucky number right now, but hopefully not for long ;-)

    Defo not resting on my laurels and keep pushing for more and your so right about the effort it takes to stay the same weight. We have to work for those calories these days and it's not easy hun. I have been getting my running game on as it's become a bit of an addiction, but have had to rest my legs as they can only do so much, but I did also run 12.87 kms last week.

    I am making time for everything as best I can with the family, exercise, wedding planning and work. I feel I have found the right balance with each.

    I love the nick name T1 by the way :-) :-)

  • I forgot about the 12.87km! I ran a tiny 3k this morning - but it was fast and controlled, so hopefully on my way back up to the bigger numbers again soon without too much trouble. Glad you like T1 - I was just being lazy! I sometimes get called RCR on the couch to 5k forum - sounds very businesslike but I like it :)

  • 3 k is better than no k RCR, I like that name as well and thanks for the new nick name which I do really like, I've got moreless already using it so that's really cool :-)

  • What a lovely post - had me welling up! I hope your sis had a fabulous day it is my sisters birthday today how lucky we are to have sisters, and for you to be there for each other, So glad you can look in the mirror and be proud and happy - I love to buy size 10's such a pity we can't wear the labels on the outside 😜 And it's so nice to buy things that look nice rather than because it fits. Love Canon in D still one of my favourites, what are you going out to? Nosey aren't I call it proffesional interest 😄

  • Happy birthday to your sister :-) My sister had a smile on her face she just couldn't hide away, her face displayed pure happiness that day and I captured it on my camera. Just beautiful :-)

    It is such a pity we cannot wear the labels on the outside, although I did have a size 10 on today where the label can be in or out LOL H&M I decided to wear it on the inside, although I really wanted to leave it out :-) :-)

    I chose Beyonce 'Hello' originally, as this really means a lot because he had me at 'Hello', but after hearing Canon in D I decided this is the one! I begin my walk on minute 2. I also chose Mary J 'Everything' because he is my everything and I am his, but this piece of music symbolizes so much more :-) I don't mind you being nosey Prin :-) it's all good :-)

    Wishing you and your sister a lovely evening and thank you so much x

    T1 :-)

  • Oh Trafford! I've only just found this thread, I looked on Saturday and couldn't find it and didn't stumble upon it yesterday either.

    I have a lump in my throat just reading your post and soaking up the love and joy that's flowing out of it. Your music has been a favourite of mine, for as long as I can remember, I have it on a cd and listen to it frequently. Whenever I listen to it now, I shall think of you walking down the aisle to your union with Mr T.

    You are going to be a beautiful size 10 bride and Mr T is a very lucky chap indeed :)

    How wonderful that you and your sister are enjoying these feelings and activities at the same time. You'll have so many happy memories to share.

    I love the fact that you love yourself now and quite rightly so. You've worked hard for this Traff and deserve to feel proud and happy. I feel exactly the same for you.

    Yours is a story that fairy tales are made of, but there were no magic wands, or fairy godmothers, you made all this happen yourself, with sheer hard work, determination and self-belief. You are an inspiration to us all. xxx

  • How beautiful your words are moreless and I really from the bottom of my heart thank you so very much. Just beautiful :-) and that has made me feel even more special than I already felt :-) I'm so pleased that this piece is one of your favorites and that you have it on CD Wow, that's so cool hun :-) aww it's just such a nice piece of music. We love classical music and I hope that If I can keep it to myself that when Mr T does hear this playing that he will be like, 'what the..' LOL he will love it. I know he will. We have been together since high school and never been apart so this is just the icing on the cake for us, this is true love right here :-) My sister and I are two of the happiest girls in the world right now and we are both very lucky indeed :-)

    Sorry you missed my post, it's easily done when your busy. I've missed some as well and it's because the forum has become extremely busy as you well know and they just fly by. Glad you found me moreless x

    T1 new nick name given by Ruth, I love it :-)

    Traff :-)


  • Always, always think you are special T1, because you are, especially to me :)
