    No that's not cheating at all but if I have spag bol I use Quorn mince as it's free. I'm guessing you are on a green day

    bulking it out with beans will help your weightloss as they are a speed food :) ...i would use quorn mince and don't tell OH, just throw in some bovril!

    i weigh everything that needs weighing - particularly cheese!

    don't question or you'll be here all day! it's worked out by nutritionists who know what they're talking about, as opposed to us lot, who haven't really got a clue!

    trust me - it works! i eat quite alot food, especially in the evening and i'm 30lbs lighter for it!

    I started in March 2007 with just 2 hours of karate a week (I'd had a knee op in the December before so I didn't want to overdo it!) then I started kickboxing at the beginning of this year.

    You would still lose without it. I lost my first couple of stone with zero exercise but I feel so much better in myself since I started proper structured exercise and it helps to increase your metabolism but never NEVER weigh yourself after exercising!

    Wednesday evening is my WI. You always weigh more after exercise, something to do with the muscles and water or something like that. Not entirely sure but I always weigh 2-4lb more when I come back from karate! It's gone again by morning though

    you're weightloss will be a combination of things.

    when i started SW i went for a 1.5 hour walk and 2 x 1 hour swimming sessions and i lost 1lb - wasn't impressed! but last week i played golf for 2.5 hours and did a 1 hour swimming session and lost 3 lbs.... but this week i have done no excercise at all and lost 4 lbs!

    i've lost the majority of my weight doing no exercise... but some weeks i do 3 or 4 hours. i work different shifts each day, so struggle to fit it in - mainly because i'm disorganized! towards winter i will get a gp referal for my local sports centre, as i was offered one last week, but said i'd come back at a later date.
