Hi Sassy and thank you
, I love posts like yours that make me realise just how much I may have helped people on their own journeys.
It has been long and hard and of course there were, and still are, temptations along the way but it has been so worth not giving in to them (most of the time).
Just take one day at a time and focus on the long term, picture yourself in 6 or 12 months time and use that as something to aim for.
As stupid as it sounds my first "focus thought" was picturing myself at 100 kilos and at the hair dressers getting my hair done, as that was my 100 kilo reward, a hair cut, something I hadnt done for 15 or so years. Just that thought kept me going to that point. Once I got that far I knew I could do the rest.
Best of luck to your good self and keep at it, you will do it
