    My finger nails seem to be growing much slower since I started LL - has this happened to anyone else, or am I just imagining it?! :confused:

    Hi
    They probably are, remember your body is using every single calorie its getting to keep you going so there is no extra to expend on growing finger nails and possibly hair.

    Small price to pay for how FANTASTIC you are going to feel when you get to your goal.

    Great losses so far by the way really awesome:worthy:

    Thanks Tange - makes perfect sense. Now, if only it stopped your hair going grey as well as growing - I would save an arm and a leg at the hairdressers!

    And thanks for you're lovely words about my loss - I have to say, I'm feeling pretty proud :D :D

    Tell me about it, getting rid of the grey would be almost as good as getting rid of the weight.

    yep - but we can cover up the grey - I'm fed up of covering up the weight, or trying to! :rolleyes:

    I must say though, since I started eating again my nails are stronger than they ever have been in my life and I haven't broken a single one in months.
    And all the hair that fell out is growing back....grey!

    I've just found another very welcome side effect - the hairs on my legs have more or less stopped growing :D
