Oh Granny, I love em!!!!
Inspiration to all.
Thanks moon beam, you look amazing well done, i too am on the losing train, have lost7 Kilo's so far not sure what that is in pounds but it sure feels good,
These are great granny! I love them, the lady cracks me up!!
Its great Moonbeam, I will have to use this one when I finally get to the end of my journey!!
I know what a kilo is!
A kilo = 2.2 pounds. So you have lost 7 x 2.2 = 15.4 lbs. That is wonderful!
If she cracks you up, you should see me when I get on the scale!!
Thanks, Kode, glad you like them.
Thanks for that onieRN,will remember that, still feels good. lol
Only 2 lbs a month is the best way - slow and steady wins the race..... It took me 18 months to lose 55lbs..and I found that is the reason I have kept it off - simply because it gave me time to create new "Habits".. I guess this site is not the place to discuss it as it is so Off Topic but you are welcome to join us at Walking with Attitude ..we have a weight loss discussion section -I'm the forum moderator there so we'd love to help you and encourage you...then you can have your before and after photo's here on the Gallery

I quit smoking many many years ago ( thank goodness) after I watched my Dad die of emphysema...but I put on weight too.

I eat more now than ever .I just eat differently...I cook differently .............At first people tried to make me feel like I was deprived when I said no thanks to Hot chips & a chocolate donut etc.... But now as I see them overweight and unwell & diabetic I know I am not deprived!! They are - deprived of feeling alive and well -Even Ian's diabetes has been reversed..his doctor is wrapt.
His recent surgery was not "health" Issues but an injury.
You too should check out walkingwithattitude.comif you want motivation and support to lose weight the right way and for good!
