    One of my biggest goals was to get my bmi below 40...why?

    Because last April i went to the docs to ask to be put forward for gastric banding.

    You have to have a bmi of 40 or over to be considered, so now even if i wanted it, i wouldn't be heavy enough! Yay! I'm still flipping heavy but this was a hurdle i really wanted to get past!

    Sorry for starting a thread about this but i just wanted to shout about it :D

    Thank you :eek:

    I'm doing green as i'm a veggie- it's fantastic- i can have all my carby things like potatoes & pasta & lots of cheese with my heathy extras! Mmmm i love cheese!
    The EE plan seems fab if you eat meat but for me the green is perfect & i'm loving the fact i can have 2 hea & heb if i want :)

    Thanks Laura! You have come a long way! Well done you :)

    I think my next goal should be to get into the overweight section ( only 4 & 1/2 stone to go! :sigh: ) I have only just got out of the morbidly obese into the obese....:eek:
