i am sorry to bother you with this, but i just realized i am now under the 200 pound mark hence i am in the 100s. i cannot tell you what this means to me. it's made me cry a little bit with joy. it's what i dreamed of. very soon i will be under the 90s in kilos and under 14 stone, being 14 stone 3 now. i didn't realize this yesterday for my weigh in but it dawned on me today (duh!)... it feels FANTASTIC! when i joined up this wonderful forum i said i aimed to lose weight slowly and steadily and that's what i am doing. i am in control. and so so happy. i wanted to share this with you all. we can all really do this. it is possible. and i have absolutely not given up my treats, they are what keeps me on the straight and narrow 90% time. love from me :-)

This is both wonderful for you and very uplifting for us lot - congratulations and very well done your HeatheUnlocked name really is most fitting.

What a journey you are on! and I return the love, hugs (virtual of course!) and very best wishes for the future months.

My next goal is sub-100 kgs (I've still got 12 or so to go) and I'm hoping to get there for my birthday (early May). If I make it we're going to have a massive party (still virtual of course!!) and you're invited!

Heartfelt congratulations - keep at it, keep happy, keep safe and buy yourself something that makes you feel like the exceptional woman that you are. 😁🤗🤗💛

Thank U for your support. I’ve had ups and downs with my weight. I’m still using food as a crutch. Fortunately I’m speaking to my shrink on Wednesday. I’m under immense financial pressure and my ADHD and depression R kicking in now BUT I’m not using this as an excuse it just makes it more of a challenge now

Amazing!! You are in 'onderland!' Great job changing-woman, you must be so pleased 😀💪💪I sometimes measure in pounds as well as stone and was so happy when I reached 'onederland' too - feels like such a big milestone and it's so nice to see a 1 on the scale instead of a 2!
