In the other great countdown, things are progressing apace.
I am now the proud loser of just over one official Slimming World sanctioned stone. This is good - one sixth of the way there, approximately. Thirteen weeks and 15.5 lbs.
In total, I've lost a little more than that - closer to a stone and a half - as I started dieting before I joined SW. But still.
In another stone, I'll be a third of the way there.
At three stones down, I'll be halfway.
Another stone makes it four and that's two thirds.
And when five have gone, I can start looking for wedding dresses.
