I hope you can support your SIL, Dawn. It's not about getting thin. It's all about getting (and then staying) healthy. I hope that your SIL find a reason to change her life style that is important enough for her so that she'll focus on it and get it done. I'll keep my fingers crossed for her.

Lorchen,

I am soooooo proud of you! I know loosing wight is not easy! And, I'm sure there are certain foods that you really like but had to give up! But, you look great! And, I'm glad you are so much healthier! My SIL has a major weight problem, but after many failed attempts, she finally said, "I like food better than I like to be thin." I worry about her!

You go girl!

It's funny, Michelle, how all bodies are different in the way they work. Mine seems to need some of the carbs, but I have to be mega-careful now with bread, cheeses and anything containing sugar or/and fat. I'm glad you worked out what you have to do. Once you have managed to do that you have won the battle. It'll still be tough but you can pull it back after an 'interesting' time. I have just been on holiday for nearly three weeks, and totally dependant on hotel and restaurant food. Yes, I have put on a bit, but it'll all be gone again by the end of the month. It has to be because the wedding of one of my best friends is coming up and I will simply enjoy the day, including all the naughty but nice stuff! :)

Hooray for you Lorchen! I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes a few years ago and that got me to look at my eating and weight. Cutting our the carbs was the answer and staying consistent goes up and down for me. But like you, I am determined.

Keep up the good work and may you have MANY more years to share with your family.

Debby, it's also very rewarding to meet up with TQS members at a big show here in England, and a lot less of me turns up.

Also, several quilters who have known me for years walked straight past me without recognizing me. Hehehe......

Thank you, everybody, for your enthusiastic support. I'm off on holiday tomorrow. I'm flying, and it'll be the first time that I won't have to ask for an extension belt! yeah!!

Congratulations Lorchen!! What a wonderful accomplishment. The before and after pics are so dramatic. I'm so happy you are doing this by learning to make healthy choices and enjoying the process. Isn't it fun to share the journey with all of your TQS friends?

So proud of you Lorchen. I know how hard it is to lose weight. You must have a lot of determination, spunk, and will power. Hugs to you.
