  • That's amazing, you must be so proud x that requires a lot of hard work and commitment x

  • Thank you. It's not always been easy and sometimes I have had to deviate off course due to stormy weather BUT if you want it badly enough then it's yours for the taking.

    Good luck. X

  • Wow, that's amazing well done.

  • Thank you. X

  • Oh my!! That is just fantastic! πŸ˜ŠπŸŽ‰πŸ‘πŸŽˆπŸ˜Š very well done 😊😊😊 what a lovely inspiring post to wake up to 😊 How have you done it? I love to read about people's success stories 😊

  • Thank you Anna. I will do another post later on today and sum it all up. I may have a couple of little jewels to offer you on your way. Just reach for your dreams. X

  • Thank you Candystripe 😊

    What I am especially impressed with is you are still going after a couple of years, it seems to be taking me ages And I find it really encouraging that there are people like yourself who really have made permanent life long changes 😊😊😊

  • Hi Anna,

    Please see my new post "Further to the Monday Weigh to this).

    Happy reading. X

  • Brilliant and so inspiring for me and others who have a lot to loose just shows with grit and determination anythings possible. Enjoy the rest of the weekend feeling amazing. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  • Thank you Babs.

    You have been amazing too by the looks of it. Doesn't it feel good when you go down another clothes size and people notice. Keep up the great work. X

  • Thankyou yes it does feel great when clothes get too big but I still have to meet that one person that says "wow you have lost weight" I think I will probably shout from the rooftops when that happens lol. πŸ˜ƒ

  • Wow, Candystripe, that is AMAZING!!!!! Many Congratulations!!!! Really exciting news, and WELL DONE YOU on such a fantastic achievement!!!! :-)

    That news is so inspiring, and you are such a wonderful and lovely person, it's been brilliant being alongside you on your journey over the past months.

    Wow, what great news to hear - I'm really excited!

    Lowcal :-)

  • Dear Lowcal,

    Your lovely comments really choked me up. From one who I can say I couldn't have done it without you and that is so the truth. The lovely Prin also needs a mention here!

    We are still running the course together Lowcal and thank you for all you say and do and the inspiration for us all. Big hugs X

  • Congratulations candy stripe. How long did that take?

  • Well to be honest it was two years. Not always plain sailing and I fell by the wayside a few times but I was determined to succeed. Only another 12 lbs to go to my goal weight!!!

    Keep up the great work. X

  • WOOHOO Candystripe!!! WTG you!! my pom poms are going crackers for you! Fandabedozy! :) :) :)

    I'm absolutely delighted for you, it's been a long time coming and has taken a lot of hard work! You soooooooo deserve this! :)

    Would you like a 7 stone badge? :)

  • Thank you Moreless. Ooh yes please. Haven't had one since stone one lol!! X

  • I'm honoured to present you with this badge, Candystripe wear it with pride :)

  • Okay, so crying shamelessly now. I was just one of those people who said "I can't do it". Thanks to this wonderful site of Health Unlocked who supported me through the good times and the bad.

    That's my academy speech over.

    I can only utter our motto.... onwards and downwards!

  • It's a very emotional journey and deserves a few tears, at times. I've actually bawled bucket loads, so I understand completely where you're coming from.

    This community is definitely the best and I will echo.......

    Onwards and downwards! :)

  • Seven stone! That is really inspirational a remarkable achievement

  • Thank you nteapea. That's very kind of you. Keep on going! X

  • Hi Candystripe,

    So very happy to read you have reached your goal πŸ’πŸ˜ƒπŸŽ‰πŸ‘

    I will never forget your post when you fitted into a lovely blouse and the inspiration and motivation it gave me.

    I'm still on the journey but I know I will get there ! Life throws us all kinds of challenges and it's not how long it takes, what is more important is that we get there.

    Lots of love and continued happiness xx


  • Dear Flossie, how kind of you. Not quite at my goal yet, another 12lbs to go, but celebrating the seven stone loss. Keep following your dreams Flossie. Big hugs XXX

  • Wow, congratulations and well done!

  • What a wonderful post to start my day - I have a smile on my face already. You must feel like a whole new person compared to when you started two years ago and to lose 7 stone is such an amazing achievement. You give us all strength to carry on, knowing what it is possible to achieve so thank you so much for sharing your happiness with us all; it is infectious! x

    Have a good week and keep those dreams alive. X

  • Fantastic achievement Candystripe! What's your ultimate goal?

  • Thank you Concerned. Well I'm now 11st 4lbs and want to be 10st 7lbs so another 12ish pounds to go. I don't think any less would suit me. Blow all this what I must be for my age and height πŸ˜€ X

  • What's your plan to keep it off Candystripe?

  • My plan is my lifestyle that I have changed over the past two years. I don't always deny myself treats, I just work them in accordingly. I love going to the gym twice a week and have my personal trainer twice a week. I will keep it up. Basically nothing will change. I don't think I will ever get below 10 stone no matter how hard I try. ! Good luck to you X

  • Woo-hoo - that is fantastic, Candystripe, you have been a total inspiration and well done on reaching your penultimate goal today :) :)

  • Thank you Less To Lose for your very kind words. Never thought I would get there! Have a good week. X

  • Dear Customer 53, thank you so much for your kind words. I know how much it meant to me 2 years ago reading posts that would spurn me on. If they could do it then so could I.

    Good luck. X

  • Oh my what an achievement! You should feel amazing - very well done :)

  • Thank you. Yes I feel great! Onwards & downwards! πŸ˜€ X
