The Big Momma Challenge week 16

This week I lost 1lb.  I nearly typed 'just 1lb' but it's still a loss, and I'm still moving in the right direction. That brings my total weight loss to 20lb, not bad.

To keep myself motivated I keep thinking of some of the things that will change once I've lost all the weight.  I like wearing long leather boots once the weather turns colder, but over the past few years I've had difficulty finding any that fit my chunky (fat) calves.  Over the last few years I've had to buy boots from specialist company or have had to suffer the embarrassment of trying on so-called 'wide calf fit' boots in shops, only to find they are still too small. So one of the things I'm looking forward to is shopping for boots  in regular shoe shops, with the confidence that they will actually fit comfortably. Small pleasures, I know, but it will mean a lot to me.

I'm looking forward to hearing about the rest of you, have you had a good week?  What have you done this week that really worked for you? And if you had a bad week (and we've all been there) don't be embarrassed, just add your post and we can come and offer some encouragement.  Anyone else who is trying to improve their diet and lifestyle is very welcome to join in.  Just add your blog post to the linky below and let us know how you are getting on.
