    Maybe this will be my final question before I start LL....!

    I've heard a couple of you talking about "filling out" when not putting on weight.

    I'm sure most other people will get what you mean... but I'm a tad confused about what this entails?

    its just where in abstaince ya kinda delflate and some people start looking gaunt near the end.

    then when u go back eating u get ur "roundness" and start looking less gaunt, but its just cause ur glycogen is back, not that ur actually getting bigger or heavier!!

    hope this makes sense....i know what i mean lol!! xxx

    Oh how lovely Catz, I did an itec diploma in holistic massage and then went onto do sports therapy which i passed a couple of years ago - I wish I had lost weight b4 that as everyone there was glamorous and had hip bones and back bones etc - except me! :(:cry:
    Mind you, I must say its easier to massage someone with a few extra pounds, but I had a few too many and was so self-concious!:eek:

    I don't think I would personally ever want to be described as gaunt... I want to find certain bits of my body I've never known were there!

    SB - I don't think you look gaunt... you look very 'little', your features and everything are so delicate, but it may just be a case of your head not catching up yet... either way, I'm sure a bit of food on RTM will help things a bit - with your confidence at least... you look FAB and are a great role model for people on LL. :)
