I'm more than happy for others to adopt the balloon thing too if you want to (our living room is a little crowded at the moment, as there is still helium left in the 3 and the 4 too!) My daughter loves it! It just shows how quickly the weight falls off on this diet, that you can get the next balloons while the earlier ones are still going. Can't wait to go and get the next one now! This is now new ground for me on the weight loss too. Up until a few pounds ago, I was relosing weight I'd lost before.... but this is now a whole new world for me!
