Stepped on the scales last night, and had lost a further 1.5kg! Which makes 4.5kg (ie nearly 10 pounds) since I started on 7th Sept (ie a month ago.) My BMI has fallen from 29.60 (30 is obese) to 28 and when I get to 25, I will no longer be "overweight". Plus, I bought a size 42 pair of jeans on holiday - ie UK size 14/16.
So onwards and upwards :-)
