51.6 Pounds !!!

Hi everyone... I don't post often, but today I feel like SHOUTING....

Since January 6, 2016, I am down 51.6 pounds! (Or 3 Stone, 9.6 lbs)

I AM SO HAPPY!

I have only 8.6 pounds left to lose to no longer be considered overweight according to Body Mass Index (which I do not feel is a fair scale, just sayin)

I'd like to lose 23.6 more... But I know it's not going to be easy.

I've been doing this ON MY OWN. I used to attend weight watchers meetings, but since April it's been ME and ME.

I don't usually boast, but I just had to. Not just anyone understands the sense of accomplishment that comes with the loss of just a few pounds when you know you've worked hard towards it.... But YOU ALL do.

My Blessings to all, and thanks for listening to me :)

I'll go back to happy dancing on my own now.

Hi Potterbook,

Wow, this is FANTASTIC news! Many Congratulations on losing 51.6 pounds - that is incredible!!! I can completely understand you wanting to SHOUT about it - it is really really great!!!

So glad you posted about your achievements, and let us all know how you're doing. It's very inspiring to hear.

Wishing you continued success, and a great week ahead.

Do let us know if you'd like to have a weight loss badge to wear - I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but I think it's a great option to have a badge if you would like to have one, so please let either myself or moreless know if you'd like one. We could offer you a 3 stone badge - which I know doesn't mark the extra 9.6 pounds extra you've lost.

Anyway, many Congratulations!!!

Lowcal :-)

Thank you, and that would be amazing.... My only question is, once I get those 9 + off, Can I get it changed to 4 Stone?

Yes, it can be swapped as you progress, so I'll pop back with a 3 stone badge for you now, and when you're ready for the 4 stone one just let us know, and we will swap it for you!!!! :-)

Thank you, and honestly I wish I had a magical answer for you. I'm just tired of being tired. My body feels better, I am sick less, I look better... This time I just found a determination that I haven't found before. I'm also learning that it's not a diet, that this a way of life I need to follow,. So I treat myself to ice cream and pizza and Chinese. I bust my butt to get rid of it after, but It's like a fair payment. I can say this, if I can do this, anyone can. It's truly all in ones head. Find the motivation, and the willpower, and it can be anyone. You just need to want to do it, and believe that you CAN.

I have one question.

After losing that much weight do you noticed some sagging skin or exercise helped to tone up your skin muscles???🤔

I'm sorry for the VERY late reply. I have both, definitely room for improvement on the toning, but not too bad. I'm not at goal yet, so I can't see any muscles.

You really should shout this more often because you're doing great !!
