Woo Hoo I did it

Well I am over the moon today, I have been on a diet almost 6 months now, the reason was of course I was overweight but I had high cholesterol ( not sure I spelt that correctly) well I have been doing the diet on my own with the nurse at my doctors weighing me every 3 weeks, I have not cheated once and today when I saw her I have lost my target weight plus 2lb more and my total weight loss is 58lb and I have lowered my Cholesterol to and will not need pills, so I was just so happy :-) plus to keep me motivated my daughter and i are doing the walk the walk next May in London, all 26 miles of it I hope, so we will have a 12 week training programme to follow next year. Well just had to advertise this loss to someone and here it is, thanks for reading love from a very happy me xxx

Love you blog. It's very nice for us crafters.

The butterflies are wonderful. I'm going to make some for the project. Heard about it from Dan's site. His templates are wonderful.

Good job on the weight loss. I've been a member of SparkPeople for almost a year. Also belong to Weight Watchers.

Happy stamping!

Andrea hun, having seen you dieting for the last six months I have to say that you are an inspiration to everyone who wants to lose those extra pounds. I have watched you be so strong and full of willpower, and when I have been stuffing my face with chocolate, you have been so strict with yourself. Congratulations hun, I am so proud of you love and even more proud cos you are doing the Walk the Walk which is for such a deserving cause. Massive hugs for you xxxxxxxx

Dan said...

Margaret said...

well done on losing so much but if you dont mind me saying so I think you have overdone it a bit because it has aged you

Hels said...

Blimey, Andrea, if I were you and had just read that previous comment I would be really gutted that after all your hard work, dedication, determination and amazing success with your weight loss that someone could be, in my opinion, rather unkind - after all, as the saying goes, if one has nothing pleasant to say, then don't say anything at all! Like I said before hun, I am really, really, really proud of you because you have achieved so much; I have seen your unwaivering determination and I don't think it has aged you at all...and even if it had (which it hasn't) at least you will have a healthier and much longer life because you have lowered your cholestrol without the need for medication. I look at you with admiration for if I had just a modicum of the will power you have, I too would be slim and gorgeous!!! So there! Lotsa hugs to you Andrea, take care hun xxx
