ggirl. yes i know - i have done this before. only not to this extent. i am unsure as to howtocarry it fwd. i amthinking that iwillgo lbs under what i want to be - then i can factor in being a pig occasionally

Blimey.That is a hell of a lot of weight to lose! shock

Good for you.Nothing like feeling good about your body.

Fabulous stuff custardo, well done! That is a real achievement. Bet you look fab and your health will have improved vastly too. You deserve to be super proud of yourself. And no doubt you are now in need of some new clothes in a smaller size. The perfect excuse to shop wink!

moondog Fri 09-Oct-09 22:33:06

No, don't go pounds under. Stay at a weight you can sustain.Factor in some exercise.It really helps in every way.

brimfull Fri 09-Oct-09 22:38:56


keep up with exercise-muscle building ones I found the most beneficial from a weight point of view

and keep an eye on your weight

i ignored and regret it

brimfull Fri 09-Oct-09 22:42:52

how long has it tken you custy?

am tempted to try again

Tortington Fri 09-Oct-09 22:47:54

i ride nmy bike but only occasionaly, like once a week, it took me 5 months, i am v. dedicated. - i have one more stone to lose then i will be perfect weight for height - 5"1 and 3.4 to be precice!

ty all for being kind

moondog Fri 09-Oct-09 22:49:07

Do more than that to tone up. Swimming, aerobics. Don;'t laugh but running is the best thing ever.

jasper Fri 09-Oct-09 22:51:02

very impressive. Enjoy your achievement

Tortington Fri 09-Oct-09 22:55:36

ty ty i go swimming occasionally too - in fact in my youth i as a highly excellent swimmer and i miss the water so much. i have a fear of going on my own - it;s silly and i o with my SIL. but i know i should go on my own and just do he lengths instead of messing around with kids

again ty vm

Custardo- You must feel fantastic

What is a normal day's menu please?

<nosey arse emoticon>

Tortington Fri 09-Oct-09 23:05:02

today i ate 2 pieces of fish cooked with butter and lemon and pepper with salad.

that;s all

i only eat one meal a day. if i pget peckish i hate ice pops - sugsr free.

yeaster day i had pieces froma ready cooked cicken from tesco. it was shit though.

the day before i ate 2 chicekn breats. with mushrooms ans onion fired in olice oil. put on top of chicken breasts then covered with slices of cheese -so it would melt.

i totally understand that one meal a day is pants - however - i had so much weight to lose and i totally homestly and utterly don;t feel hungry.promise

Tortington Fri 09-Oct-09 23:05:47

spelling is pants cos i am pissed

brimfull Fri 09-Oct-09 23:06:51
