    The NHS should employ you to go round to every person having gastric band surgery because losing weight is "to hard" as proof that determination is all it takes in most cases. Well done, you should be insanely proud of yourself.

    Okay this is more for my own records than anything else so I have things to link to in my blog, but thought I might as well share with you guys!

    I know there are a lot of people out there wanting to know how to lose weight, or knowing they should but lacking the motivation.

    Let me tell you a little bit about me, just quickly. I've always been big. The photo that is my "before" photo isn't me at my biggest. There's probably a difference of around 4 stone between the two photos. The bigger ones are just too upsetting for me to look at, never mind post for the world to see.

    Just wanted to post these to show you that it can be done. I still have a while to before my goal weight, but if anyone wants to see pics at that point (assuming I get there) I shall post those as well when the time comes. Either in this thread or I'll make another as it'll be long dead by then.

    Here is the photo. Do excuse the "after" photo face.. that's my "I can't concentrate on holding the camera still and smile at the same time" face :P.

    You can tell the most difference on my waist. You can tell the difference in my face, too, but not on that particular photo. There are plenty more on my blog (link in sig) if you're interested.

    Also incase you're interested, the "before" photo are size 20 jeans and size 18 top. The "after" photo is a size 12 dress (although it is a big size 12, I'm under no illusions that I'm *actually* at an average size 12 just yet) from George at Asda.

    Spoiler:

    As for HOW I lost the weight, there really is no secret. I stopped eating rubbish and started exercising. But I am incredibly proud of myself, as I've struggled with my weight since I was young, and I'm so proud that I've managed to do something positive about it this time.

    I know I'll probably get some idiots posting comments like "but you're still ugly" (yes, I've had PMs saying that lol some people are lovely!!) but if this thread can motivate even one person, or give them a little push towards making them a healthier person, then it was worth posting.
    Wow! I admire you and respect you so much for this! What a massive difference. You look so much healthier in the second picture. You look like a different person! How did people react to your drastic change in appearance?

    And I cant believe anyone would go out of their way to PM you that when first of all its not true at all and second of all, why would you even say that to someone?! They're just jel. I cant imagine how proud I you must feel!

    Ooh I'd love to do that. Makes me feel incredibly sad when people turn to surgery because they simply don't believe in themselves.

    Thank you :-). People who haven't seen me for years are a bit shocked. Those around me are all very supportive. I get a lot of comments on Facebook (they get spammed with photos all the time lol) saying how amazing I look etc. It's encouraging to know that all these people are behind me, even though I don't know most of them!

    Thank you EVERYONE for your kind words. If I'd known everyone would be this nice, I would have done it YEARS ago!
