Inches not lbs?


I lost 2.5lb in the first week and from then on I've just been losing inches. I've been doing it 4 weeks and I've lost 13.5cm in total all over (thigh, bottom tummy, mummy tummy, waist, bra line, arms).

I probably only have half a stone to a stone to lose to get to my pre hysterectomy weight (1 year ago, age 37 now). I'm on HRT and I wasn't on hormones before that (no pill or anything).
I actually feel loads happier a on SW that before when I was eating smal portions X 5 a day.

Just trying to get my head around loving my body for how it is I guess. I was expecting big things from SW that haven't really materialised.

That's amazing miss_mcvicar!!

You've done fantastic so far, and I'm sure you will get that pesky half a stone off, sometimes it can take some time for your body to adjust to the plan, and I can imagine that your HRT will have an effect somehow.

You've said you feel much happier on SW than you did on your previous plan, so it seems to have made a difference to your relationship with food, and it's a healthy way to lose both inches and pounds. Don't be disheartened, as long as you are sticking to the plan, you will get to where you want to be

But you have done amazing to lose 13.5 cm!! Fabulous

Thanks. This is where I think going to a group would be better than online - I need encouragement and someone to be accountable to : ) thank you
