    Haha I'm the same my waist hasn't gone down much in the last few weeks ?? I always lose loads on my waist, in my case it's middle aged spread , maybe diff exercises would help?xx

    bust - 5.5 inch
    waist - 5 iinch
    hips - 5 inch
    thighs - 3.5 inch each
    arms - 1/2 inch each

    that's at 21st June

    I'd always lose 3-4 inch more off my waist ?

    Well done on losing those inches. I have found that doing the hula hoop exercise on the wii has done wonders for my waist. Its just pretend hula hooping really

    well done on those inch losses ladies, i cant wait to get to that stage!! the waist inches may have slowed as ul be lossing the inches where the most weight is, which tends to be the bust, hips ect......

    and i agree, hula hooping real or make believe is fab for waist as is stomach crunches but turn to the side as u sit up, its a real killer but is great for trimming the waist!

    all the best and keep up the fab work xxx

    yeah i'm thinking exercises tbh, i only do swimming and weights lol so legs and arms are getting there and my hips were huge so think that's why they have gone down a lot as more to lose there, don't get me started on my bust, HATE losing the weight there :( need exercises to tone that up too haha :D :D but the tum needs attention for now, tum and arms i need to work on, once i've done that i'll be pretty happy tbh! my double chin has gone down a lot too :eek::eek::eek: :D:D:D:D:D:D

    ha no worries hun, crunches are basically sit ups but u really have to keep your tum taught and held in. u can get some good variation ideas on you tube id imagine, u can pretty much find anything on there lol. u sit up with your hands resting at your temples and when u get to sitting up u twist to either left or right, u can then repeat as many times as u feel fit then do same but twist oppersite side, or just alernate between sides with each one, entirely up to u, but it does work hun. let me know if u give it a go and
    how your getting on xxx

    russian twists will help your waist smirky:

    sit on the floor as you would if you were about to lie down and do a regular sit up - so knees together in front of you, lift your feet off the floor and using a heavyish object - 500ml bottle of water maybe or something heavier, touch it to one side of you and then pass it across to the other side, do 3 sets of 12 reps. Hurts but its worth it :) x

    theres an example on there ^ as my explanations arent great!
