I have 3 stone to lose to reach that goal, so that's 42lbs in 34 weeks, which averages at about a pound and a quarter a week. Should be doable.

Good luck, I hope it works out for you. Like you I couldnt understand how you could have unlimited mugshots which are nearly 300 calories a shot! Bizarre!
