    Most people here have a weightloss plan they subscribe to. I don't want to do that so I've got no-one to pay! :brainfart: Here's the deal. I ferreted around and found an old piggy bank (quite apt I think) and I am going to pay him £10 per month plus £1 per llb. One day when I am so thin my clothes don't fit I can go on a wonderful shopping spree. Move over in the trough Piggy - you're about to get rich! :cool:

    I think that is a great idea and I think we should all sponsor ourselves £1 per lb and when we are at target we can buy new clothes!

    Penalty

    The penalty could go to charity so there would still be plenty of incentive to get those new clothes :)

    Is he laughing at me?

    He there now - in the corner - with that grin on his face - and that roll of the eyes. He's thinking 'Three days to WI and I win either way....' He's not a nice character, my pig! If I lose weight he smiles smugly cos he's got my money - if I dont, he rolls his eyes with that sinister way that only THIS pig can as if to say 'Ha - told you you wouldn't do it - and I still get my money at the beginning of next month'. But don't worry - he'll win but I'LL LOSE :D
