    Never normally bet but saw a horse in the Grand National called "slim pickings" though I'd chance a fiver on it - it came in third :D was in the lead almost till the end but was just pipped to the post. Winnings will pay to another week of Lighterlife so I'm quite chuffed :D Must go and buy a Lottery ticket and test if my luck really is in today ;)

    I've never bet on anything either until they did the sweepstakes at work yesterday and I drew Silver Birch. Talk about beginner's luck! I'm £25 richer.

    Thanks everyone and grats to you too for winning. LOL. I told hubby I would never do it again. I'd be disappointed if I lost.

    I bet on slim pickings too for same reasons! I only bet 2.50 each way though so won't get as much as you but i'm happy. Really thought it was going to come first - i got so excited.

    Just shows this diet is worth it in so many ways :rolleyes:

    I had a £4 bet each way on Slim Pickings! I didn't even think about LL! I thought it looked like an interesting horse from teh form guide - my friends and I go to the pub and read up on all the horses before we place our bets! Normally I've had a few drinks by the time the race comes on, but this year I was on water and coffee - so I was delighted to get a different sort of buzz!!!

    Yep, I picked that horse too. Not difficult to guess why, but I did the same as Sharon and only put on £2 each way!

    I chanced a fiver each way so came out with about £ 50.00!! Pays for a few "in between" clothes as I drop sizes!!
