    ive been on ll for the 100 days now but im really struggling.
    Ive been thinking what started me off on this and it was my appearance on wife swap 5 months ago it was the worst and the best experience of my life but seeing myself so huge prompted me to lose weight.
    Ive only been able to watch the programe once.
    im gathering up the courage to watch it again today to give me the kick i need:p:p:p

    ooooh!! A celebrity!!! :D I like that show but don't know if I could or would want to do it! rave of you!!!

    Isn;t it funny how sometimes seeing ourselves like that, like watching someone else,can be such an eye opener!!!

    How did you do in 100 days - do you have much furher to go? I know I will be in development months after the 100 days. But just keep remembering - it is only temporary!!!! You have done 100 - and you survived - just remind yourself of the success ou have had and keep on going!! And yeah, if the show prompted you initially I say watchit again!!!

    Good luck!!!

    Were you the wife - or the husband? :)

    Oh, and don't be sad....be happy - you are doing this for you, and taking care of you, and making you healthy!! ake pride and bbe happy!!

    If you click on USER CP up in the bloo banner that willtkae you to 'your' page. On the left, there are a lot of links to edit password, edit profice, etc. Edit profile is where you can add Avatars and comments, etc. Or maybe it's edit your signature. You have to have a certain number of posts though bbefore you can change some features.

    Will have a look at your vid!! :)

    LOL - just had a watch. How did you cope!! Loved when he siad this is cleaned daily, right? and his littlen said, "No"!

    You are not the monster you make yourself out to be. You are very pretty, and I like your accent!!

    And you are obviously very brave and strong to have done that show.

    You can do this too!!!

    Did anybody watch the episode this week with the family that was stuck in the 1800's and looked filthy as hell!?
    It was so angry with them for trapping their poor children!

    Well i watched it last night- but think it was repeated from earlier in the week.
    There was this family and they lived on a boat- and grew all their own vegetables/food/meat/ milked their own goat etc etc.
    used wee as fertaliser. their boat was dead secluded and u could only interact with other people by getting another boat into the village.
    The poor children was "home schooled" for less than an hour a day- didnt interact with anyone but their brothers and sisters or their parents and had to spend the days mucking out animals and feeding chickens!
    so when the lady wanted them to swap she sent the children to a school and they absolutly loved it! loved being with other children etc and their dad refused to let them go back.
    It was just so sad :(
    made me angry! xxxxxx
