That's amazing considering you were only 5 in 1999 :lol:

Seriously, that is good. I have a really long way to go.

Way to go Pilsbury - you can do it.

I've put on a couple of pound recently - really odd considering the amount of dancing I've been doing... mind you, the last lot of dancing was accompanied by a few pints of real ale too - Brude from the Hillside Brewery up here in Aberdeenshire and Witches Cauldron from The Cairngorm Brewery

What sort of dancing do you do Shirlz? I'm off out tonight to a dance in Dursley. Mostly Lindyhop and some Jazz Jive tonight.

Weighed in this evening. Another 2lbs off. That's 1.5 stones now. :cheers:

Seriously gonna have to buy some new clothes now as all my trousers are far too big and keep falling down :lol:

Now I need to find a supplier of ethically produced clothes for tall girls. Any ideas anyone?

Another half a pound this week. Not bad considering that I was away at the weekend and we had cake!

Hey Peeps...

I hit my goal weight on the 27th of December! I forgot to let you know...
Have moved off the farm, and am now in Brisbane still working, working, working... and have managed to keep a fairly steady weight between 60 and 63kg since arriving.

Lots of soft spots that still need tidying up... lol... But the old bod feels heaps better for it.

So, all those who pledged the moolah... tis time to dig deep now, into those cobwebby wallets and send those pennies across to SISH!!!!

17kg GONE.

:? Oh I dunno, why that pics not workin.... But those that want a peek, can cut and paste?...

Hello Boots! Nice to hear from you!

That link doesn't work - just takes you to Tiny Pix or whatever they are and I don't think somehow the piccies there are what you were trying to show us.

So it seems that in order to lose weight you have to stop working your butt off on a farm but just start working in the city (and sit around all day on your bum :lol: ).

Well done you, but before I cough up Shirlz has got to reach her halfway target too!!!

oh god... dieting has been the absolute last thing on my mind just recently so I'm very sorry but I've let the team down. Being inactive last year really has impacted hugely..... although I've still kept below my original weight so I'm pleased enough with that. Will have a check back and see what my target weight was.

Boots - it's GREAT to see you, and you are looking GREAT!!

OK I've looked back to the beginning and I said I'd pay out 5 quid each if you at least reached your halfway point.

So I owe for Boots and Shirlz but how is Chilli coming along?

I'll pay up anyway, I don't think I necessarily meant you all had to achieve your targets! But it was such a long time ago I can't remember. :lol:

I'll have to have a talk with Andy.

I see quite a few other people sponsored you but whether they have paid anything yet I don't know.

Damn these androgynous names!
Glad I'm not the only one!

I'll sponsor you £5 each but you must attain half your target or I won't pay out!

Now if you were blokes I'd say I want to see before and after photos, but as you are all girls I would not be so mean!
Finally found this thread and would like to say that I have paid my £5 in person to Andy for Boots' amazing weight loss! :cheers:
