    DaTucker, thanks for the support. Hope the house move is going well.

    Baba seems to be going through a sleep regression for the last two weeks or so....she was super clingy yesterday evening and getting her to settle in bed took two hours whereas normally she self settles after 10 minutes or so. As they say this too shall pass......hopefully!

    Was hoping to be under 11 stone for her first birthday tomorrow, but with over a pound to go that ain't going to happen...... a pity but not to be.......once I reach this mini goal I'll be working towards getting to 10 stone 5 (145lbs) to be in the healthy BMI category.

    @Marina, thanks petal for popping in, always hard to stick with it at this time of year with holidays and sometimes a wee break is needed to feel rejuvenated.

    @lovelylaura, thanks for the encouragement, have been stalking in your journal too, you're doing brilliant to be at 10st 10, hope you feel better and can get back running again soon.

    @topsy, thank you, it was definitely tough going for me but feels great to know I stuck with and didn't give up, need to get a plan in place as to what exercise to do next

    I started this challenge on September 8th with two goals, both of which I have now reached. :yipee:

    •lose 9 kilos or 21lbs
    - starting weight 176lbs, current weight at the end of November 154lbs
    •lose at least 3 inches from around my navel
    -starting measurement 41, current measurement at the end on November just a smidge under 38 inches


    To keep me motivated to reach and maintain an ultimate weight range between 126 and 130lbs, I have decided to move over and start a proper journal in the Dieting Journal forum.

    I want to thank all the lovely ladies who have really encouraged and supported me in this thread over the last months and I hope you'll pop into my new journal every now and again too.

    :hugs: Thanks for reading and I promise to update with my weigh-in on this thread on New Year's Eve
