    I don't see why not. It's only 2.5lb a week (she said, very optimistically). I say go for it (but promise me you won't be too disappointed if you don't...?)

    Good luck!

    You may have to go on a VLCD for the duration as there are 3,500kcals in a lb of fat.

    Oh and remember, carrot cake is healthy and counts as a portion of veg... ;) Well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it (and that's what I'm having for my birthday cake in 6 weeks' time!)

    Morning Hunni,

    I think that 2.5lbs is doable - nothing wrong with having something to aim for ;):D!! If you don't make it you will be very close indeed - you've got nothing to lose except lbs of course :p

    Why not see what your WI is like this week. If you have another good loss carry on as you are and if it's not so good maybe do kickstart in the run up to your birthday?

    Quick word of warning with the exercise - sometimes it can cause water retention so up your water intake a bit. And I find that if I do CV within 24 hours of WI I'll be heavier, so you might want to have a rest day the day before WI is due!

    5lbs in counting then chick .....

    I'm sure that will be fine chick. Don't forget the extra water!!! Don't know about you but since finishing CD I feel like a blob - probably just that we are actually eating!!

    Hey Gem,

    Did you see Starlight's thread re. eating all your points? You should probably eat all your allowance each day (or week) so that your losses don't stall. Just a thought hunni as it would be a shame to shock your body into a plateau with not enough points when you only have 5lbs to go
