Hi, my name is Claire and I have just posted my first pics (I think!). I lost 40 kg a couple of years ago and then, over the last 6 months have unfortunately put 6kg back on. I hope that I can gain some motivation from your inspirational jounrneys.

Hi Claire & Welcome !!!

You asked me a question of how I keep focussed. Tough question that .....

One thing that makes me keep focussed is my health. As soon as I stop exercising, I can feel the effects pretty much immediately with my arrhythmia ( heart beat ) go out of control with palpitations. So needless to say that scares the crap out of me and I keep moving forward !

Another way I keep focussed is that Im feeling 100% better and confident about myself and am no longer a prisoner in my own home. Im now able to go shopping and actually enjoy it ! Whereas before I positively hated the thought of shopping and I would get too depressed as I couldnt find anything that didn't resemble a mumu dress !

Thirdly, this forum is a great way to keep focussed. We have a wonderful community here and honestly, if it werent for these guys, then I probably wouldnt have gotten as far as I have !

Should you need anything at all, please holla out, there'll always be someone lurking around ;)

That's really good advice, thanks! I have a date with my friend to go bathers shopping in 20 weeks time. I'm looking forward to feeling good about it, rather than embarrassed! I saw a programme called, 'The Secret' a while ago. I remember it explaining that if you really want something, visualise it in your mind. Feel the feelings that you would have if you had already achieved your goal. I think that it really does help! Cheers, Claire. :wink:

Hi Claire! Welcome to the forum. You look really good now so you're going to look amazing when you get to your goal weight! And good on you for posing in a bikini for your photos. I haven't had the guts but I wish I'd done so now as it's the best way to see how far you've come by the end of your journey.

Good luck with your weight loss. I'm sure you can do it!

Thankyou for your support and your encouragement! :D I really love this forum!! Not only is it a great support and inspiration, but it is a fantastic distraction when I am feeling as though I want to eat - hungry or not!! Cheers, Claire. :wink:
