    I've succeeded in making solo for 4 weeks, I went back to my group for a WI and I've put on 2 lbs. It has been a bumpy ride but I think I've finally got it together. The first 2 weeks were particularly difficult as I found myself binging but thanks to a great site which someone mentioned on here called www.nutracheck.co.uk which is a food diary site which counts your calories for you, I discovered although I was eating really healthy I wasn't actually giving myself any calories my average day without binging was only 1500-1600 calories. After discovering this I upped my calories to 2200 by adding more carbohydrates to diet and since doing this I have not picked as much in fact only once in the 2 weeks and that was only a 4 biscuit binge against previous binges of packets of biscuits. What other things have I learnt on this LL journey? I love exercise now and cycle to work everyday and go out with friends at weekends where we have cycled nearly 40 miles and this weekend I have a proper racing bike and future plans of trips of 50-60 miles. I'm also doing 100 crunches 4 mornings a week, which is slowly helping my stomach to tighten up.

    I have been weighing myself everyday for a while but after today I'm going to settle back to once a week. I will continue to use the food diary site though as this is very helpful to me. I realise it's only 4 weeks but I am really proud of the way I have suceeded.
    I have the upmost respect for you all on here, quite simply I think you are all amazing the way you work so hard at LL. I found so many posts on here, particularly by MrsLard, Sez and Cerulean so insperational and helpful and have helped me get to where I am now.

    Thank you all. :)
