    I have just managed to put on a pair of my 19 year old daughter's skinny jeans - now she is about a size 8 and these have been falling off her for a while so I suggested i try them. They were a slight squeeze to get on seeing as they are a skinny fit all the way up the leg but I got them on and if I was younger would definately wear them out and about!:happy036:

    actually them fitting and looking great in them are two very different things! I am more of a bootleg girl myself - as i have a fairly large (ok huge) bust i look far to top heavy in the skinny version!

    actually 10.12 at present and 5 foot 4 inches. I's the exercise that has made my shape change - would love to see smaller numbers on the scales though!

    Been exercising for about a year or so - mostly running but also cycling. i use a powerplate twice a week and have done quite a bit of weights in the past (must get back to them!). The inch difference is very noticeable more so than the scales - I started SW with 41.5 inch chest, 33.5 inch waist and 39.5 inch hips (did not measure thighs at this stage) - todays measurements are 37 inch chest, 28 inch waist and 36 inch hips (since Jan i have lost around 2 inches from thighs). It really is worth measuring if you are doing exercise.

    wow well done.
    Am aiming to return to gym tomorrow for 30mins pump + 30mins spin (have not been gym for 5 weeks), so thought this might be a good combination.
    Thought you were on hols in Devon????????

    leave on Saturday for Devon - two weeks of cycling up and down the Tarka Trail! Hoping my gym will start a spinning class for early morning gym goers like me - at present they only do them in the evening and i like to get my exercise over and done with before work. Are you wanting to go further/faster with your running?

    Probably like to aim for 30 ins 5K (at moment doing about 34mins), but have not run for 5 weeks and even then was really only doing 1/2 per week and gym sessions.
    Just really need to get back into routine.
    Have a lovely holiday.

    will do - are you doign 'interval' training to get your timing faster? I think that is what has helped me get to under 30 mins.
