OMG - if you break down my weight loss - its the same as 3x the average 2 yr old! There is NO way I would be able to carry 3 toddlers around all day, everyday! Scary!

Scary indeed Red.

I was at the gyn this morning and my PT (how good does that sound? :D ) had a new piece of equipment for me to use.

Basically it's a fat suit :eek:, kinda like a tabard top that fastens round the waist with velcro and weighs 21lbs.

I couldn't believe how much harder a "normal" exercise routine was while wearing it, I was absolutely knackered!

Sobering to think I've been carrying more than that around with me for the last god-know how many years.........:( but it didn't half cheer me up to think that I'll never have to do it again (except in the gym!)

Thanks honey, that is very nice of you to say. I am a bit terrified of starting to eat food next week - I will have to keep the photos nearby to keep me on the straight and narrow!
