adios 25kg don't bother keeping in touch!!!
I'm feeling a little bit happy with myself today!

This is my first new outfit, everything else had found its way to the give away bag as it was falling down. I can't believe how much different I feel and how motivated I am to succeed. I've become a very strict calorie counter but it is what I need to do, it gives me power over food.

I have lost 25kg (55lbs) in 20 weeks.

I didn't realise a milestone like 25k would make me feel so elated, but it did and I have to say I am pretty proud of myself. I am almost half way there.

The best thing of all is I have been feeling very satisfied, I do have to watch impulse eating, I still find myself at the pantry looking for something to eat, I have to pull myself up and say.. well are you hungry... NO... so close the door and find something to do!!! Sometimes I just go no I am going to eat something, and I will, I don't tell myself but I allow an spare 100 calories a day for walking food, you know the nibbles you have while you make the kids afternoon tea, a cracker here a nibble of cheese there.

It is working and I'm pretty happy with my progress.
