New page under construction, just like me.

I have been using this site since February 2008, along the way I have found plenty of help and advice and lost 60lbs. That means my skirts are 5 sizes smaller and, depending on the cut, my tops are 3-4 sizes smaller.
I have also managed to start regular exercise sessions to complement my visits to Curves and recently started the C25k programme. (I never thought I would even attempt that until now, but I even managed to get DD to join me)
I never believed that it would be possible ...

I never believed that it would be possible to get back to my wedding weight but that is looking ever more achievable although I only wanted to be able to say I am 10st something (14?lbs)

Thanks for your kind thoughts. It really was terrible. Daughter goes to college in Croydon and was terrified it would be burnt down. Luckily it wasn't. At work, we received a message from the police telling us to close and go home. We managed to get out about 20 minutes before the building was surrounded by riot police and stone throwing yobs. A few broken windows. Other places suffered much worse. Hopefully, it will be a long time before anything like it happens again. Sorry to hear about your pet dog, but it seems to have the best family to look after it.
