I seem to have found acceptance!

It feels weird! I'm not getting on the scales every morning, I'm not constantly thinking I need to diet, I just feel comfortable

I think it's because I'm running, I know the chances are I'll lose a bit through that! And also, I was at a party Saturday night and I was really surprised by the pictures! I actually looked thin I usually look at pics of others and think I wished I looked like that - this time I actually did! I was actually really shocked by a pic my OH took, I didn't recognise myself and actually thought it was a child in the picture til I realised it was my face the joys of being short haha! It must have been the angle it was taken at or something!

But yea, I actually feel really happy for a change!

I am very happy for you. I hope to someday get to where you are now! I feel that way when I look at photos from several years ago. I think, "Who is that thin woman? That can't be me!" It WAS me, though, and hopefully will be again.

Twyla, I've not been this size since school, but the weirdest one for me was showing the kids a picture of me when I was pregnant and they asked who it was

It's fab now though cos I'll go for a run and then tuck into something not so healthy and not be all like "omg I'm ruining my hard work!"

What's really weird is I've actually only lost about 1/2 stone in the last year, but even since summer I can see a change in my shape!

No doubt I'll have a panic about it all in a few months before my holiday though

That is definitely a really healthy attitude to have towards things


Wow can't believe your kids didn't recognise the photo!

I've shown it to friends who didn't know me back then too who were shocked it was me! I carried a LOT of weight on my face, so losing it's totally changed how I look! Even now I can tell when I've gained a few lbs cos I can feel it on my neck!
