Hello all you lovely folk, I'm delighted with my weight loss this week I have achieved the 3 stone weight loss and what a boost to my morale, have gone down 2 dress sizes and with two operations coming up in the near future new knee and hernia repair, still hoping to lose another 3 stone, I haven't been this weight for years and losing my lovely hubby two years ago after 59 years wed, I com fort ate and could not be bothered to cook meals for myself, but after a year I got to grips with myself, told myself off joined this happy positive band of super people and I surely am on my way, (just wish my hubby could see me now, still feel him around though x) I am sticking to 1500 cals a day, sometimes a wee bit less and eating really healthy.So onwards and downwards and thanks so much for all the positive vibes I get from this site. xx

Although you are a stranger to me I feel for you and am so proud. You're doing this for you and have to believe that your beloved husband does know. Maybe in some way he was helping you from afar - wherever that is... keep going but remember you are doing this for yourself. No body else, in order to be healthy. Good luck with your medical procedures. They will be so much easier at a healthy weight. Keep going but enjoy the journey too!

Lovely post lathe . Your husband is with you and so proud. Xx

Sorry to hear you lost your husband lathe. Those first two years are the worst but from now on things will get easier. I lost both parents in 2011 (one from illness and the other a few months later from a broken heart) and while I sill miss them heaps I find it is all the happy times that I remember now,

You've done fantastically losing 3 stone :D You're a legend! Those next three are doomed lol Looking forward to seeing a 4 beside your name soon :)
