    Won't be back here till Sunday night. Running my first half-marathon this weekend. I have developed laryngitis and now bronchitis in the last couple of days, but I will finish this run if it's the last thing I do! :wave_cry:

    Will report back Sunday. Have a lovely weekend everyone! :D

    Thanks so much everyone.

    Forgot to say my other big news - I reached my target weight this morning. :D :D :D :D :D

    Talk about cutting it fine! :eek:

    And now I've reached it, I of course want to lose another 7-10lbs just to give me a little leeway...:rolleyes:

    Aw - thanks to all of you for your lovely encouragement. It was fantastic - such an experience, and I'm totally elated that I finished it! :D

    My legs lost power after about 8 miles - not sure if that's a ketosis thing or the horrible chest infection I now have, but at mile 10 I got my second wind, and took off again! Ran (or crawled bits!) the whole way too, so I know I can do long distances in ketosis in future. Just need to get fitter and get the speed up a bit.

    I had bacon, egg and mushrooms for breakfast, while my sister, who did it with me, went for the whole carb-loading thing. Didn't seem to make any difference.

    So, in short, I did it, I did it, I did it! :D
