When I lose weight, I will…

What will you do as you lose weight? Do you have any goals – both short-term and long-term? There are so many things that my weight has stopped me from doing, either because I’ve just been too heavy, too big or my confidence has been zapped. So, now expanded from one of my blog posts, here’s my list that I’ll mark each time I can claim success!

  • Be able to put my feet together when I stand up………….ACHIEVED!!!
  • Get into a dress that I wore on a cruise 2 years ago ………….ACHIEVED!!!
