Into the tens and doing a little dance!

I've not posted for a while as my super-slow weight loss is soooo boring. However, I'm doing a little dance this morning as I weighed in at 10st 13lbs.... just 8lbs to go!...mind you at this rate it might take another four months (sigh). I'd like to get there by the end of August when I'm off to the big Apple for my daughter's 21st, (I have a vision of being surrounded by skinny, surgically pert Americans...)

Morning MotwCoop

Yay!! It may be slow but it is certainly going in the right direction so dance like no ones watching and enjoy. Good luck with the last 8lbs, you can do this!

Have a great day.

All the more reason to celebrate! Slow and steady wins the race. It's been my story too, gradually getting there 👍

surgically pert doesn't count... (except g/bands etc.)

You've done the work and given the time to make it happen.

Well done you.. Enjoy the run up to NY !!

There's a sentence you never expect to say..."surgically pert doesn't count"! Love it.

Glad to hear you're getting somewhere, even if not quite as fast as you'd like! :)

Don't think you have to worry too much about overly skinny Americans, I don't actually know anybody like that! Not to say there isn't but not in nearly the prevalence you see on TV. And then there's the whole issue of us being the fattest country in the world.... :(

Good luck and Congratulations! :D

God, me too! But still, that's a very niche industry so I don't think you need to worry! :)

I come from Utah originally and we have the highest per capita ice cream consumption of the whole country so size 6 is not necessarily going to be realistic for many of the population! :D

it must be hot in Utah for so much ice-cream!! Where are you based now?

Hot and dry in the summer, cold and snowy in the winter. I think the ice cream has to do with the fact that a large percentage of the population are Mormon and therefore don't drink (alcohol or caffeine) or smoke! :)

Currently living in West Sussex, on the coast.

Sussex is lovely, we used to holiday there when I was a child to East Sussex, Camber Sands near Rye.

It is pretty here, I like living by the sea. A bit more sand would be nice, it's mostly rocks near us :)

Though it did take me awhile to get my bearings without any mountains to provide directions! :D
