    I was feeling a little disappointed this week after losing 1lb (I stuck to plan religiously and hoped it would be more) when my boyfriend presented me with a rather unusual gift.....a huge marrow!
    He had weighed it and it weighed 5.5lbs which is exactly what I've lost in 2 weeks. It was quite heavy and I felt pretty amazed and remotivated.

    Left me thinking has anyone else got a strange tip for motivation?

    I can think of an unusual use for marrow but you need to have had at least 20 children before its possible.
    :8855: - ow, ow, ow, ow!
    Seriously though, well done on the splendid weight loss and what a nice boyfriend you have to give you vegetable based motivational gifts!

    Haha that made me laugh no children here I'm afraid no wonder you're called madame la minx with a mind like that :p

    You're all making him get a big head he is very proud of the home grown marrow!

    I may post future losses in marrows rather than pounds..........

    Thank you for making me feel so welcome on here it's great!
