A mid-size microwave - thinking about it like that makes me realise how much extra weight I am carryingsad

An Irish Setter would take me down to my 'ideal weight'. I'm going to have a bloody good crack at it too as my best mate turns 40 in September and I won't be the fat mate in the pictures.

Oh Christ I need to lose my own leg!

MinionDave Tue 30-Dec-14 14:27:33

I need to lose a 2 month old horse, but I'll settle for a hay bale.

Have started off well by menu planning and being strict whilst shopping.
I watched the Hairy Bikers diet programme this morning and there are a couple of really tasty dishes I'll be cooking. Am planning on trying to stick to a 1400cal a day allowance.

Ideally a Microwave for me but would be happy with the amount of cheese an American eats in a year. Mmm cheese - that may have just scuppered todays diet plans :-)

Ooh, I've lost a tire since the summer! I still want to lose about another head.

If I lost a microwave I'd only just be in the middle of my BMI range sad.

TheWhispersOfTheGods Fri 02-Jan-15 17:43:35

I need to lose 10 dozen eggs.
I want to lose the average pizza consumption
I am trying to lose the average cheese consumption.
