It's belly and boobs

Top two are fab pictures *wolf whistles* Nam's a hottie! Look at those cheek bones!

3rd one down you look like Rene Zellweger or however you spell it.

It's amazing how much younger you look on top one than on 3rd one!

these weren't!!  they're photos of photos... i.e. took a pic of a paper photo with digi camera...  these are only the better ones as the worst were always torn up...  I would rip up 80% of my holiday shots...

Hi there, I've just noticed this - can I join too, please?.  Having been over 16st (height 5ft 3) I'm mostly OK with my weight (about 10st 7lbs at present)  but could do with loosing about a stone of podge from around my middle.  I cut back on my running after the marathon I did in May but still ate the same amount so got heavier.  It's gradually shifting now I'm running more but this thread will help with motivation  Must eat more slowly!

LOL... welcome Yvonne...  You're now part of a double act!!!

Hi Yvonne. Haven't we met somewhere?

<polishes halo> Have done an hour on the exercise bike. <chucks halo to ground> Then had pancakes for tea. Only 2, though. I had promised my other half that we'd have pancakes tonight, as he is poorly and they would cheer him up. So the bike ride probably pretty much cancelled out the pancake calories, I reckon?

Also must mention something that touched a nerve for me - Johnny Blaze, you said you were going to "cut down on butter". I salute you! Not for cutting down on the butter, but for actually admitting you eat butter, but are only going to cut down, not cut it out. I have tried every low fat spread on the planet, and I would still rather have a thin scraping of butter, how ever many calories that may be, than any "spread" that exists. I am planning on downsizing my weekday morning toast from 3 slices to 2, but still with butter. I only have one little catering pat on each slice.

Can I be in if I don't actually weigh myself for a few weeks yet?  Previous uneasy relationship with scales and numbers so would prefer to wait until my clothes feel reasonable before inflicting it on myself!

Re: body fat.  This is pretty much totally lifted from my exercise physiology lecture notes (sorry Trevor) but explains it well I think!  Have added little notes....

Methods of assessment:

            -Densitometry

            -Hydrostatic weighing (very accurate but not widely available...only specialised

            university research centres etc)

            -Skin-fold thickness technique (4 or 7 site most common)*.  Accurate when done

            by somebody experienced.  Most accurate to get them to do the follow-up

            measurements too....

            -Waist to hip ratio

            -Bioelectrical impedance (Measures amount of current flow through tissue. Fat-            free tissue has greater conductivity = less impedance than fatty tissue)...but not

            very accurate really.  Used in those Tanita scales etc.  Errors depending on

            hydration status etc...and read somewhere that the scales tend to only measure

            lower body fat-shudder.

            -Other lab techniques - Radiography, CT, MRI, DEXA.  DEXA is the technique

             they use for bone scans.  Apparently it's as accurate as the hydrostatic

            weighing but don't think it's licensed for that indication so forget it!

  *Most widely used todayThree or more sites measuredInactive individuals – 4 sitesTrained individuals – 7 site method Bicep, tricep, subscapular, supraspinale, abdominal, front-thigh and medial-calfTypical scores             Elite male athlete (33-57mm); female (45-69mm)
