    Hey everyone, been a while since I got on here, have been very busy lately!

    Still beavering away at LL, lost half a stone over this past 2 weeks :) still hitting the gym 3-4 times a week too, prepping as good as a I can for my surfing/beach holiday at the start of August (though the thought still terrifies me at this point!)

    Hope everyone is getting on well! :D
    **lurks off to read the 500+ posts he's missed over the last few weeks**

    Thank you. I'm half the woman I used to be! i hope LL works as well for you.
    It has truly changed if not saved - my life.

    Pete - this is for you -

    :character00180:
    Have you been surfing before? You can't really practice in advance can you?
    Unless you've got a huge bath in that flat of yours.....................!

    Happy week-end.

    Hi SB - yes this is going to work for me. I sure want it bad enough. So many changes already (all for the better). My daughter actually came up to me last night and said she had just realised i run up and down the stairs now and dont even realise im doing it. I go for a run every single Bmorning at 5am - and i am more focused than i have ever been in anything in my entire life. Just looking and reading all about you 'big loosers' :D is what has kept me going the last 11 weeks.

    well impressed that you are going away for a stag week whilst on LL. Got a couple of Boys breaks from august (football, golf stag weekends) onwards up and I am dreading them. Not sure how I will be able to resist the ale at the moment I am thinking of backing out. Any ideas?

    That or hope that by the time it comes around I am seeing massive differences and I am more confident to not be bothered, by nut drinking and eating out.

    Alcohol has never been an issue for me, I was practically tee-total for 2+ years before starting LL anyway, so I've got no advice there, sorry!

    As for not eating while on the stag do, well, as it is an "active" holiday there won't really be any time to just be sitting around, and having 9 other guys there with me will keep me on track, it's when I'm on my own that I struggle, I get a kick out of sticking to it and seeing others' faces when they see first-hand that I really *don't* eat anything at all :D

    Still Still here! :p

    Stil losing, though it's slowed a bit to only a few pounds this last 2 weeks. Still, better off than on! Now my gym buddy is back from Uni for good we're hitting the weights/treadmill for a few hours 4-6 times a week! My body hates me while I'm doing it, but me head feels so awesome afterwards! lol

    Speaking of which, gotta leave work now and go meet him for tonight's session!

    Hope everyone is still going strong, keep telling yourself you can do this! (and serisouly, if I can do it, anyone can!)

    Peace! :D

    Hi Pete. Know exactly what you mean about your body hating u while at the gym. I started spinning recently and am now doing it for an hour 5 times a week. During the class you think what the hell am i putting myself through this for - but 10mins after the class u feel 10feet tall and that u could take on the world. I love that feeling
