I've collected my "half-stone" sticker and certificate when I weighed in tonight. I qualified for this last week but as I don't stay to the meetings, but just weigh in, it was given to me tonight.

I've lost another 2lbs, so the total off now is 9.5lbs. As a bonus, the first figure (what I call the "tonnage" but other people call 'stones' :wink: ) has dropped. Yay! :lol: I so badly wanted to get rid of that figure and I've done it. I'm so pleased.

My next challenge is to get to my first "1 stone loss" award. As bonus, people are just beginning to notice that I'm dieting. I too, am starting to see where the weight has gone which is encouraging.

I have a good group of friends who are supporting me and cheering me on, as indeed, are all of you. Without such support I couldn't do this, so thank you!

    Thank you all for your kind replies.

    I've got a way to go yet and it'll be a slow journey but the destination will be reached!

    Well done you.
    it'll be a slow journey
    Quite possibly, but remember 'slow and steady wins the race'

    Excellent. Well done you! I know how difficult it can be at times - I'm counting pro-points at the moment to get rid of a few pounds.

    Just wanted to say congratulations on the sticker winning and tonnage shrinkage. I know I'm a bit slow to respond so apologies for that.
    Do remember if you get stuck that my offer still holds. For reasons best known to the good old RA, I have lost over half a stone while continuing to stuff my face and stay within the limits for my height, so I could easily manage to take over several pounds for you!
    Well done on the good work

    Well done grace it feels fantastic when you reach that first sticker and when as you say the tonnage/stone number drops too doesn't it. now just aim for the 1st stone only 4 and a half pounds to get there just chip away each week and you'll soon achieve it. this week I gained but have now stayed in target for 18 months so I must be doing something right.
    Stay positive always👍xx

    Thank you for your replies.

    Slomo - I may well take you up on your kind offer. Perhaps you'd be good enough to take 5lbs? That would get me to a stone off!

    Turbogran - sounds like you are doing well to stay so close to target still. Well done.
