    can't help you with the fat but try carrying 11 bags of sugar as that is what you have lost, well done! x

    Do you have any "butter" in the fridge they are usually in half pound blocks/tubs (250g) so 2 of those is around 1lb well done on the loss so far x

    Thanks guys!!!

    Also, someone sciency just told me that 1kg of body fat fills about 1 litre of space so ive effectively lost 10litres of fat! So ive just filled up 5 x 2litre empty bottles of diet coke to show how much space ive lost!! (i really hope they worked it out right because it looks amazing!!) :D

    Its given me my motivation back and just had a healthy dinner!
