    Thought we'd have a challenge to see how much weight we can lose in the 13 weeks of Big Brother.

    If we pledge what we'd like to lose & update each time we weigh in... we could all be Slimmer Sisters while watching Big Brother!! :rolleyes: (cheesey I know but couldn't think of anything else!!)

    So just copy & paste the pledges & updated weigh ins. xx

    I'm going to try to lose 21lb, from my starting weight of 12st 7lb. I think it will be tough because I have two holidays in that time (I'll be eating fairly sensibly, but my regular routines will obviously be out of the window!), but I shall do my best!
