Hi guys

I know this is not nails related but I just wanted to share my excitement with you, I have now lost 46 lbs with weight watchers and now weigh in at

9 stone 13 lbs

beating my goal weight of 10 stone, I have been overweight for the last 12 years of my life (since 16) and have never been a size 12 before (my wedding dress was a size 20, 4 years ago) and I am loving it!!!

Sorry to boast but this is something amazing for me and I just needed to share it with you all cos you have all been so nice and helpful with me since I joined.

Another fab thing is that I have had two new clients over the past week from leaflets that I have dropped in my area and at the weight watchers meeting (£'s off for lbs's off offer!)

So thats my first ever business started with two lovely new clients and a lovely size 12 uniform (did I mention I was a size 12 lol!!!!!!)

loving everybody right now!!

Well done to you it is worth all the hard work - I know how that feels - keep it off now and don't slip down the slope like I did - you have inspired me I will get back on my diet but from tomorrow. Well done again.

I know what you mean, my little handbook says I can add another 4 points onto my daily allowance, but there is no way I can bring myself to do it, I figure if I loiter around the same points or a couple more max for now, until I actually trust myself.

A great big huge WELL DONE!!!!! to you Sammylou!!

I know how hard it is to lose weight, i did try the weight watchers thing last year, i only had about a stone to lose but i just couldnt stick to it, i think i was being too strict on myself so the 1/2 stone i lost i put back on plus another few pounds!!

To lose 46lbs is fantastic, so i really think i should get back on track with my diet, well done agian!

Congratulations

You really deserve to be happy and hey, you are making us all feel like there is no such thing as just the one, or tomorrow for that matter. Just be careful and enjoy the clothes and attention. I too lost a lot of weight and then put on a couple of pounds and another few, my mum said to sort it out then and there, but did I!!!! I am now suffering with four stone to lose and a £500 bet with my boyfriend that I will do it by new years eve. Oh well, we all need something to focus on dont we.

Keep at it
