Talking 23lbs in... Hello 180s :D

Just did new photos yesterday and am amazed to see my weight coming off in reverse order from how it went on! I bought a load of clothes I thought would fit off eBay at the end of the year (when I started out, not as motivation, just a happy accident!) and am wearing loads of them now. Loving my 3/4 length white wool coat! Was wandering about in a Size 12 Miss Selfridge jumper yesterday. Fashion conscious teenagers shop in there, and they're not famous for vanity sizing! I can run short distances! I can open the heavy shutter at work! (My boyfriend said "you opened that like a wrestler!"). He even complimented me on my new guns last night (you can't tell from the picture, but I swear they're under there - I can even do 10 real press-ups now ). I can climb large hills and flights of stairs! My weight loss equates to two heavy bags of grocery shopping! I've gone down a trousers size for the first time in over a decade!

Phew! I had to recap the NSVs there - need a new shot of motivation to power through the 180s

Before - Dec 2012 - 212lbs
Now - April 2013 - 189lbs

Thanks Elvis! I've had a really positive upswing in my life generally, and the scale started moving again after a few months of difficulty. Your posts have been invaluable, very honest. Once you and Lunar get into a conversation I can learn a lot, lol!

Left you a seat in the 190s, it's still warm!! Can't wait to see you cross the onederland threshold

Thank you for being super cool

Hang in there.....

Am very sorry about the cut in your shift... that can really be a bummer...

But... you look gorgeous... and... Spring is here... and... you live in one of the most glorious places on planet Earth.

Just keep on... soon... you'll be there.

....YAY for smaller clothes and opening shutters like a wrestler and losing the equivalent of two bags of groceries! CONGRATULATIONS! I've been enjoying not being noticeably winded post stair climb myself. Haha!
