    Pointless thread alert! I've been working on loosing weight/improving my mental health for around 2 years now and I recently found a picture from when Rio was a year old that shows how much we've both changed.

    I'm really proud of my girl Rio who has grown into a beautiful adult with a heart of gold and myself for loosing 5 stone and getting my anxiety under control so wanted I'd share with you all :)

    Wow!! You've done AMAZINGLY :D:D. (Not in a patronising way, it's hard to convey meaning with smilies and typing :eek:). Genuinely a fantastic achievement :).

    Rio is a credit to you too. Just a massive well done.

    Wow well done to you both, you have both changed, Rio looks much more confident and you look fab.

    It doesnt look like you had 5 stone to lose TBH but then I wondered where it all went when I realised I had 4 to get off, annoyingly its all crept back on :mad:.


    ................Rio still has her head on sideways tho :p

    An amazing achievement on the weight loss, and getting your mental health issues under control. You look amazing, and Rio does too.

    I think you must be an inspiration to many now, no matter what someone's journey is, you are definitely highlighting that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

    Thank you all for the lovely compliments, I'm blushing here! :eek:

    The best part of it all is being able to go for long walks with my girl and Archer. My anxiety left me housebound for far to long, I couldn't get past the front door without assistance, but now I'm out every day and loving it :D

    To anyone struggling with their MH or weight keep fighting, don't be afraid to ask for help when you need it and know that there is light at the end of the tunnel. You deserve to be happy!

    I can't believe you had five stone to lose gosh, well done on the work losing it and improving your anxiety which I know isn't easy.

    You are both looking extremely confident in the second photograph and fabulous.

    Can I just say though that your smile look great in both photographs and your eyes look good in the first one, its your smile I noticed.

    Your lovely girl Rio looking stunning.

    Thank you so much for the compliment! :eek:

    I think most of my weight came off my bum and belly tbh, I was just over 16 stone in the first pic. Wish I had some better shots of me standing up, but I avoided the camera at all costs back then. :p

    You both look fantastic - and very well done; weight issues are notoriously hard to deal with, and anxiety is the most life-destroying condition imaginable. To conquer one of the is wonderful; to conquer both, nothing short of stupendous.

    Wishing you every success in your life - you deserve it.:thumbsup:
