View Full Version : My Story.

26th October 2009, 19:58
Evening all,

I know lots of you know that I have been slimming for the past 12 months, well I thought you might like to see the story, as it may or may not appear in the local papers to me.

Mods, I hope it's ok to put the link to the blogspot it's on, It's just it's laid out there quite nice, I did try to upload it here, but it was having none of it.


The reason I wnat to share it with you all, is just to remind you of what a fabulous community we have here,
The weight loss thread has kept me going through thick and thin, and you all have a part to play in me seeing this through! LOVES you all:love:

ooo and edit: The before pic was truley hideous on purpose! lol

26th October 2009, 20:05
You (and that dress) look stunning - well done hun, xx.

26th October 2009, 20:07
Dee - we are all sooooooooo proud of you hun - well done and keep up the good work x

26th October 2009, 20:11
Congratulations Dee - you look fantastic. I have lost 4? stone but am still a size 18!! Renewed determination for Xmas though - starting "winning weigh" which is run through my work on Friday so hopefully another stone off by Xmas.

Hope you got to keep the dress!!

26th October 2009, 20:15
Well done Dee :love: you've done amazing and are a true inspiration to us over on the WL thread and I've lost count of the amount of times you've had me in stitches. I just wish I could get to your meetings!

Ahhhh, I've run out of rep now! boooo!

Lovesa, I am planning (if I can get it) to wear it to the 50th anniversary dinner of the Porthcawl Lifeguard club, my SDad (died recently) was one of the founding members, and the family are all going along with a lot of old friends, SDad wouldn't have seen me looking like this since I was a teenager (and never that classy!) So hopefully I will get it! fingers crossed.

26th October 2009, 22:24
Well done Dee, you are an inspiration!

I had lost nearly 2 stone at Rosemary Conley but in recent weeks I have put a few pounds back on and am not near my goal yet, going the wrong way now!

But you give me hope that I can carry on losing again over the winter.

You look GREAT. Good luck with your new career hun! :clap2::love:

26th October 2009, 22:54
Congratulations Dee, what a fabulous story.

I can imagine a little of how you are feeling right now, having only recently become a Cambridge Diet Counsellor. I have a bit of a similar story on the Cambridge Diet Website but don't want to post my link as it will give my identity away to certain watchers, as it has my name and telephone numbers on it.

Good luck with your class. I have just started seeing clients this past week and I'm loving it!

Coupon-madder; You too hun, come on, I have turned myself from someone who would just get lashed up (drunk) to be happy when out of a night (or on MSN lol) to someone who can't wait for all the things I can do at Chrimbo.

And for the first time, there WILL be pics of me for Christmas, and for my Son to see when he is older!

well done ,you look great + good luck with your class xx

27th October 2009, 16:18
You look fantastic, well done you!

I hate piccies of me, so would struggle to find a "before" picture as I delete them all as I think they're so hideous.

It just go's to show what you can achieve if you keep your motivation going, something I am struggling with yet again at the moment for various reasons.

Anyway, you look amazing!

27th October 2009, 16:21
LS, there were none of me at my biggest, I made my SD take those for me the week I started SW, I knew I'd be motivated and determined to get a nice pic, and that I would have a dramatic before and after shot!

I can't wait not to hide from th ecamera this Chrimbo! ♥

Well, I did it,
I am absolutely boggled atm though, feels like I've been on the gin! I didn't I swear!

Anyhoo, not as busy as I hoped, only 22 signed in... but I am grateful tbh, I don't think I could have coped with any more! lol

Onwards and upwards as they say!
Bring on the new members next week!

I did tell everyone last night, "If I have forgotten something, don't worry, you won't die! lol"
Room was really buzzy, and everyone stayed for group....that can only mean one of two things,
1/they were genuinally interested
2/ they wanted to watch the fool at the front! :D

5th November 2009, 11:38
:lol: Dee. I'm sure it was because they were interested.
You've broken the ice now. It will be easier next week.
