  • I have been sticking to my plan of 30 very healthy days for eight days now. Yesterday, when we had a good bye dinner for a close friend whose leaving uni, I stuck to that one small bowl with chocolate mousse, and though I was tempted to have more (chocolate is my weakness) I didn't. And I had the weirdest realisation in…
  • Reading this is so inspiring! I have a couple of NSV's from the past few weeks: When going out this week I was confident enough to realise that the good looking guy was flirting with me - and to flirt back. So proud of myself for this! I'm on my forth day (and counting) of not only calorie counting but also of making…
  • Weird one, but anyway: I have been absolutely sure that a UK 12 represented a Swedish size 40 - nope. Apparently, it's a size 38. This means that I bought trousers a size smaller than what I already though was small. It's the little things!
  • I sit differently - I can now fold my legs under my body, and lean over my knees and rest my head on them (in that way I was always jealous over other people being able to do). Hip thrusts with barbell is getting increasingly uncomfortable, as padding decreases and the weight on the bar increases.
  • I live in a really isolated place during the school year, and as such my clothes have not really kept up with my weight loss. Last weekend I ordered two new blouses and a bikini from H&M online. After some hesitation I ended up buying everything size 38 (US size 8). The parcel arrived today, and I was nervous to try it on,…
  • I suspect that I've finally breached that plateau I was stuck on for the past two months. Why? I've started to feel my bones, and not always in a good way either. Sitting is more uncomfortable, but so is resting my wrists against my computer when writing, or leaning over my desk while studying. As someone who was restless…
  • My lack of understanding of this forum led to some double posting - sorry about that! Other things I've noticed:* How quickly poor eating makes a difference in how I feel - last weekend I ate too much bread (camping trip and no choice, really) and felt bloated for days afterwards * The way compliments are phrased - it used…
  • I hadn't realized that's why I keep getting back pains from being on my stomach - 30 lbs makes a difference, I guess!
  • How have I not realized this? I've always loved lying on my stomach when doing school work, but recently I've ended up with my back hurting. 30 lbs makes a difference, I guess! Also, I'm loving the confidence that comes with weight loss and getting fitter. I've started dancing, which I've never done before, and I don't…

  • All of this^^ As well as: -The way my legs look in a skirt now, not touching? -How I am, for the first time in my life, enjoying running -How much more flexible I am without all the extra padding -I've always worked out a lot (at least 4 times a week, about an hour a time) but it's only recently that I find myself…
