Catching up on the last few weeks!

So, I finally did it! Yes finally, last week I finally managed to crack the stone barrier, and I'm now finally down into the 15's! I actually managed to hit 15st 12lbs on the scales, so not only did I manage to break the stone barrier, I reached my 10%!

I'm so thrilled to finally be below 16st, I've been pushing to get down since I first got into the 16s in August last year! I just wish I had pulled my finger out earlier! But I lost another half a pound this week, which I'm really pleased about considering I had a few slips this week, but I'm feeling focused again now!

So looking at my next goal, I would absolutely love it to be below 15st before my birthday, to be in the 14's would be the best birthday present I could ever give myself! I've got 8 weigh ins left before my birthday, and to get into the 14's I'd now need to lose 12lbs at least! I think it sounds manageable, if I try and stick to losing an average of 2lbs a week!

I'm already planning my birthday, my friend Kim and I are going up to London for the day. My plan is to buy a gorgeous new outfit to wear when we go out back in Portsmouth that evening, and getting down to a size 18 would be awesome. I'm not really sure what size I am at the moment, but as long as whatever I choose looks good, I guess it doesn't matter!
So I'm trying to stay focused and motivated, and take each week at a time, rather than looking at the massive picture. I think when I set targets I put more pressure on myself, so in a way I'm trying not to think about my birthday, and just try for the 2lbs a week I need.
