Thanks everyone for your lovely comments.
It feels good to know that I can inspire other people, and it helps inspire me when I realise how far I've come. And I'm not talking about the number on the scales, I'm talking about my whole attitude to life - I used to be shy, nervous, anxious, depressed... now I'm happy, outgoing, willing to try new things, not afraid of looking silly, etc. It's incredible to read some of my old diaries and realise that sad lonely scared girl was ME!
The photos hammer home the loss to me too. I carry my weight pretty well (most people are very surprised when I tell them what I actually weigh! - not that I tell many lol), but the extra 20-30kg made a massive difference in turning me from a fat girl into a giant blob... I love the difference in my face, and I'm quite curious to see what I'll look like when I hit my goal weight!
I've posted some new pledges for my ongoing journey in the pledge section. Thanks everyone for all your support
