    HELLO everyone!

    Well, its been MONTHS since I trod thes hallowed grounds...mainly through sheer lazyness and me not knowing what I was doing :).

    Yes, I'm back...and here to stay folkes. Don't know how many of you remember me but I'm Mike and i'm 24 (25 in a month!) and I've been going at this diet since January now! :D

    I started at 21st1lb and as of yesterday I am currently 14st7lbs! Now, I did get to 14st but I fell off the wagon and got myself into a spiral of eating over a month, all my fault, but I've pulled myself up, dusted myself off and I'm back!

    Some of you may also remember I work as a drag queen (hehe) so I thought you might like to see how I'm getting along so...please if you will, go have a gander at my website Ginny Tonic - London Based Drag Queen & Entertainer to get the full Idea of what Ginny is shaping up to be! I'm having a propper photo shoot in a couple of months so thats gunna be a LOT of fun!

    If anyone can help me locate my old pic of Ginny I posted on the site to stick on this one I would be eternally greatful LOL! That'll give you some idea of the change!

    Anyway, I've also attached a couple of pics of me so far compared to my January pics :D as well so you can see how I'm doing. Maybe I'll manage to bag myself a nice new man at my party :p

    Hope you are all well, come say hi...i've missed you all


    Big hugs and kisses


    Mike!:)

    Hey all and thanks for your kind comments!

    Well, I want ti ideally be somewhere between 11 and 12 stone...I think thats going to be very much a healthy range within my BMI and (hopefully) I will look good at that point.

    The gym is deifnately going to he;p with this. over the last month I've started doing a lot more at the gym. I got at least 3 times a week now and I do at least an hour and a half of cardio and THEN go into a bodypump class...IT realyl works and its nice to see I can outdo a lot of the other people in the gym heh ;). I'm also noticing little bumps here and there under my skin...I believe they call them muscles LOL. You wait...I'll be a little gym bunny by the time I'm at my target hehe.

    Mike! :D
    You look fantastic!

    What happened in the 'slip up?'
    Pleased to hear you're back on track :D

    Welcome back Mike ... awesome pics - amazing achievement!!

    I am so seriously impressed (and just a tad jealous! ;)) - you've stuck to the plan and now are reaping the richly-deserved rewards!

    Great pics of Ginny too (now 'Thinny Ginny' lol). It's been a real 'tonic' seeing your photos and hearing about your progress. :D

    My slip up....

    Ohhh well, in response to your quesiton about the slip up...it started when I decided that a brest of chicken wouldn't hurt. This happened the moment I heard that i'd have to do this '100 calorie week'. I think menally i freaked and had the chicken....this was shorly followed a couple of days later with some salmon, which then turned into a weekend of general debauchery!. Ever since i've struggled getting back to abstaning, and falling off for the odd meal here and there.

    However, something clicked at the weekend and I strode back to the wagon and hopped on! :p. Its funny how that happens isn't it!

    Thanks for all your great comments girls. Anyone wanting free makup tips you know where to come :D

    *hugs*
