This morning I stepped on the scales and they told me 140.

140lb is 10st, it's 5 stone down from my highest known weight of 210lb. Seeing that means I've lost 70lb, or one third of my highest body weight.

I never thought I'd be here.

I picked it as a sort of goal, because it was a nice round number, because it sounded nice, because it was so far away that it barely mattered what my goal was, I didn't really think I might get here.

Yet here I am.


Don't think it's quite sunk in, y'know. But I think maybe I'm allowed to feel secretly, silently, pretty pleased about it, for a little while.


  1. You are allowed to feel openly very pleased about it for all eternity! Body satisfaction is another story, but unless you're under 5'2", welcome to the normal weight range! Any way you slice it, losing a lot of weight is hard work. You deserve to enjoy it.

    1. Thank you so much for such a lovely comment! :) And yes, I'm 5'6", but still not used to being 'normal'!
