well I am being brave. My friend and I took photos of each other on Weds after weigh in. We are going to try and keep a record of our weight loss in photos. NOTE I said weight loss, not IF!!! I have them in an album called me. I look such a horrible frump. Thaking the photos makes me face up to what I really look like, not what I think I look like!!!1

I think we need to buy on line as well as go to the shops, we can have a double wammy of fabric!!! I did I also got a parcel today, and my Glimpses off New Zealand came yesterday. So much I want to do.

No Winnie, buying on line is not the same. You can't caress it all on line!!!

I cut up a big box of fruit this morning and popped in the fridge, was really pleased I did., I also went out to get away from eating. I am sure boredom is a great enemy. The only problem is I went to the shops and spent money on threads and ribbons etc.

Well here goes!!!!!!!

This was taken about 10 years ago when I dieted for the first time. I had lost about a stone when it was taken, so I must have been about 17st 7lb.

img002.jpgThen that year I got to WW target and had lost in total 8 st.

Winnie, I don't think it is inappropriate. When I asked who wanted to join me it was on the forum for anything goes!!!! Obviously lots of us wanted it, I was surprised how many, anyway if we loose weight it will be easier to get up and down to press our work, also more energy to go fabric shopping.

At least on a separate thread those who are not interested can just ignore it.

No Winnie, I have no intentions of losing more than about the 5 st at the end. My WW upper target is 11st 7lb for 5ft 7 and that will eventually do me. I have got to target twice before, but go back when I get depressed.

I am about a 22/24 also. Not sure what I weigh, was 16st 5lb before Xmas, but want to get to 11st 7lb. Just gone on the NHS site and at 5ft 7 it gives me a bmi of 36 and says I need to loose 6st 5lb to be in the middle of the bmi for my hieght.
