    I just wanted to give a heads up for one of my lovely customers Ailsa (AKB on here), who is also now a counsellor. Her before and after pictures is on the BBC website:

    BBC NEWS | In Pictures | In pictures: Your weight loss

    She is picture number 7 and as you can see looks amazing!

    Hi Pip,

    Have you let Chris McD or Karensa know about this, or were they involved?

    I'm not sure how Ailsa got to be on here. I'm sure she will fill us in when she see's this post. I know she is involved with them for a magazine feature though

    Hiya,

    A's seen it - she commented on our thread "careful forever". She answered an ad on BBC about weight loss, sent them an e-mail when they were looking for people with good weightloss stories...

    So proud of her!

    Hi All

    and thanks for your kind words!
    I didn't know it was on until my dear friend and early DHH mentor, Pogle, texted me this morning to say I was on it!
    I sent it in after reading about the 34stone teen programme - I was adding my twopenn'orth about VLCDs being, in my opinion (before anyone flames me), a safer and more long term solution than stomach surgery!
    I'll ring Cambridge in a min!

    Thanks Pierce - it's when I look at that photo that I realise how far I've come and what I don't want to go back to! I dodged mirrors/cameras/any reflective surface for years so never really saw the "real" me. When I first saw those 2 together I was shocked and appalled by what I'd done to myself when I finally saw what everyone else did - mentally I saw myself a good 5 or 6 stone lighter than I really was! On the before photo my hip size and my height were identical - 5' 4". AKB:true human weeble:eek:
