Just after Christmas my warm 'thick' jeans were so tight I could hardly do them up and if I did I couldn't breathe. Now, only 8 lbs lighter they fit me - whoo hoo! To be honest it took me 6 weeks to lose 4 lbs on my own but since joining the forum I've lost 4 lbs in the past 2 weeks as my motivation has improved so much. Because of my age (69 in May) I accept that it will probably take me some time to get rid of the 1.1/2 stone I still want to lose but it's amazing how much difference 8lbs makes and it saved me spending more money on jeans (although I will be delighted when I have to spend money on new ones which are a size smaller!). Have a good week everyone.
