    I was thinking, I have received so much support from people on here but hardly know anything about you all, so thought it may be fun to have a "getting to know you" session!

    1) How old are you?

    2) What part of the country are you from?

    3) What diet are you doing?

    4) When did you start this diet?

    5) How much do you want to lose in total?

    6) How much have you lost so far?

    7) What is your favourite flavour?

    8) What is your favourite recipie?

    9) Which flavour(s) don't you like?

    10) What is your top tip?

    11) Tell me one secret about yourself?

    12) Do you work/what do you do/do you sahm?

    13) What is your worst habit?

    14) What is your favourite quote?
