    I'd love to look like them!!! Bet they can eat what they like too!!!!
    Yes they have no bust but durring my weight loss I went down 3 cup size and hopefully no more. Been using a new cream apparently it plumps and firms bust... And as soon as they get in stock I'm buying tummy cream which they say in 6 weeks you can lose 2.5in of waist as it firms the skin xxx

    Lets face it though no matter how much weight we lose NONE of us are going to look like that.

    I dont mean to sound rude but I dont find people like them at all motivational, theyre models, Im never going to be a model, if anything that just makes me feel even fatter. I see something being motivational if its going to inspire me, if its something attainable. Motivational to me is something or someone who makes me think I can do that.

    On the other hand, seeing someone like Pauline Quirke and how amazing she looks after a VLCD - now thats motivational.

    I hope its not expensive because these things just dont work. Save your money and do some exercise, a cream isnt going to firm up to that extent.

    If it sounds too good to be true you can bet your bottom dollar - it is!!

    Been using the bust cream for 4 weeks and already improved and plumping up. The tummy cream is £20 a tube so yes expensive but cheaper than a tummy tuck I've lost alot of weight after having my daughter and the lovely marks I have even if it improves them it will be worth it for my own confidence. I've used bio oil etc didn't help but has helped my sister. I do loads of exercise cardio and toning but my skin needs a little help!
    I agree with Pauline quirke she looks amazing she did lighterlife I think. Xxx

    I agree with what Starlight said.
    I dont find looking at girls like that motivational at all, I doubt any of them have ever had to do a vlcd and lost loads of weight to look like that. They have obv been like that forever.
    So seeing pics of women that are thought of as "perfect" just makes me feel bad!

    The people that are great motivation for me are the ones on here who have stuck to this and lost lots of weight :D

    Also, why just because a girl is skinny is she automatically beautiful???? Some of these models look like they've been hit with an ugly stick!
    Sorry for the rant. I'm in a mood :(

    I think some one who is happy in there own body, no matter what size they are, is more inspirational. I think there is too much pressure to conform to the ideal body image when its all about knowing who you really are.
    I really liked the old dove adverts where they promoted women of all sizes who were confident in with their own body image, and this is refreshing to see.
    I personally would prefer to have curves, and shape to my body, rather then be model thin.

    firstly, this was meant a light hearted thread, and I think it's been taken slightly out of context.

    I hear what you are saying, but I think saying 'lets face it, none of us will ever look like that' is a bit extreme. People lose colossal amounts of weight on this diet, and get down to goal/healthy weight. If someone then went regularly to the gym they could probably achieve lean figures like those women.

    I don't know if they have always been skinny, maybe they have, maybe they struggled with their weight as a teenager, who knows...


    But anyway what motivates one person might not another, as I said it was meant as a bit of light hearted motivation. For me I want to aim for a ferrari body, and if I end up with a nippy little mini then great but no point aiming for a mini and getting a saab eh? SoI do find them quite motivational and inspirational, I imagine their willpower has to be strong to maintain bodies like that. Something which I guess us on VLCD and them may have in common :)

    I don't think it was taken out of context at all. We just have very different opinions. Like I said I know what I class as motivational and a group of 20 something models just isn't it

    And nor do I think my comment was extreme. They're young glamourous models with incredible bodies. I don't think most of us are going to look like that nor are we trying to. Most of us want to look and be healthy and happy in out bodies.

    Someone who can inspire me to do that they to me are motivational. I find people like our lovely Cybill way more motivating than some glamour model who probably thinks a size 10 is fat

    Wow I'm so glad others commented similar thoughts to how I felt when I first saw the photo!
    I didn't have the courage to comment though :-(
    While I think they look amazing, They and others like them are the part of the reason that at 9.7 and a size 10 im struggling to stop dieting!
    I'm constantly finding flaws with myself and have a real issue with looking perfect! - let's face it, I don't have someone following me around air brushing me!

    Obviously mr mojo meant no offence by posting the photo :) so I won't be getting my stick out to beat him just yet ;-)
