    hiya!

    Im aiming for 8 stones. am only 4'11 tho and so 8 stones is the high end of an "ok" weight for my height.

    Karen, I think a low weight is fine as long as you are the right height for it

    I would be very worried about anyone who is using a vlcd to get to a below healthy bmi

    Phew!! Was starting to REALLY get worried that you were a size zero wannabe which I know there is no way this site would encourage!!

    As long as you feel good at that weight, then it should be ok, just be careful though, you need to make sure you are within a healthy BMI....8 7 would be 21.1 for you which seems nicely in the middle of healthy!!

    If you're on Cambridge, you will have to stop SSing at about 10stone 6 and lose any further weight required by doing the CD1000 plan.

    Was on CD last year, lost 35lbs. I need to lose another 21 but haven't decided which diet to use yet
    Hiya,

    I'm hoping to get down to 8st 7 maybe a bit lower, don't know for sure as I've lost loads of weight from my face and I don't want it to get too wrinkled:(

    I'm 4ft 11, so 8 to 8.7 is about right for me.:D

    Anything above a BMI of 20 is fine but please remember that you can't SS your way past BMI 25 - you run the risk of losing lean muscle tissue and that is NOT a good thing.

    In fact - you shouldn't have been able to start SS if your BMI lower than 27. You need to be at least a stone over your BMI of 25.

    Sorry I didn't make myself clearer before - I'm very tired!

    I think you need to speak to her, hun. The rule about not continuing to SS under BMI 25 has been around for a while - so she really should know about it.

    You are doing CD, right?
