    Lady that works at the subway station I use, pulled me aside and asked me if I had liposuction because I’ve lost so much weight, so fast.

    I replied, thank you, but I just quit eating rice and started eating fat. Got a really funny look lol.
    Still another 10kg or so to go, but I’ll take it.

    LOL I was bullying compliments out of my co-workers prior to lock down. “Looook at meeeeee!”:)

    Then covid happened. I honestly think no-one will recognise me now if we ever get back into the office! I have lost over 26kg and gone from a bursting size 22 to a loose size 16 so I am very pleased.

    I actually weigh around 76 kg now - my first target is 75kg, my final target is 70kg. But whateverrrrr..... I weigh a tad under 12st now so I can return to horse-riding once the stables reopen, which was always one of my goals. I haven’t ridden properly for about 10 years as my old horse was retired in the field for quite long time and I finally lost him a couple of years ago. But I miss horses, so I am going to take it up again. Fingers crossed for the end of September!
