  16. I'm so impressed, but what impresses me more than anything else is that it has made you happy - that you have paced yourself, that your determination has resulted in a happier, healthier you. That's brilliant - and sustainable :)

    1. @Chris, yes, I think that by taking things slowly it has made all the difference. This is a long term project. I will have to work at it for the rest of my life, but it will be worth it :)

    1. Ooh, Leanne, you're not far away. That's wonderful news. I'm still a size 14 really, but I wanted to see if I could get in the 12's. I need to lose a little more weight before they're a comfortable fit...
