When you're happy with yourself in how you look, it makes you feel better all round.

The lady at our club who has lost 9stone 3lbs said it has changed her life completely, she took lots of medication, she now has stopped some tablets, as her aches and pains have gone, and feels she doesn't need to take some other tablets, so will go back to the doctors again to see what he says. She looks completely different to the person who joined, and she is so much more confident with herself.

It's all to do with being happy with yourself , and we all seem quite a happy bunch don't we :-D

Good luck in the week ahead :-D

Well done Shelley, spend, spend, spend :-D

Good for you Lynda, I think the last time I was a size 12 I was probably aged 12. I would look like a stick insect if I was that small but it would be a good reason to eat where as at the moment I sometimes eat for no reason at all :-(

I got back into my size 12 favourite jeans today, just a little tight, but wearable well chuffed with that :-D

To be honest I'm not that bothered about what I weigh, as long as I feel right with how my clothes look, I went down to a size 10 last time I dieted, it didn't suit me, if I can lose a few more pounds, so the jeans look I'll be happy.

High 5's back to you sister Hayley :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D
