nothing rocket science here,

but if you are like me, and struggling with weight FINALLY this article didn't make me feel like a freak because I'm not skinny (and I run).

Quite nice to see weight treated sensitively for a change & the ideas are reasonable and manageable

(awaits the bombardments from the 'are what you eat bridade, hiding behind the sofa)

I am in for this. Need to shed a stone at least. Am I the only person in the world who has trained for a marathon and put weight on? After my long runs I ate like a pig. I guess that defeats the object. Going to take this seriously though.

Anyone else in for it?

Yeah, I forgot to mention all the Fosters and Stella.

Do I have to give that up as well? Oh pity me!

oooh you spooked it PH ? (or was it the food police? tee hee)

here is my original comment (for those who missed it):

I get really annoyed with the running clothes manufacturers - they seem to assume that we're all twiglets. The small size clothes might just fit an 8 year old. The medium is about a size 10 and a large is apparently a size 14!!!!

well if they think Puma bint on the right is typical of a woman who runs or does exercises you can see why!

Pavement plodder - which brands do you buy out of interest?!? I do think that size 14 being a large or extra large is stupid (this one got me when out trying to get some trousers for skiing - the size 10 was a medium, the 12 a large and both were on the small side!).

Mostly I find sizing is standard though (i need small / x-small tops and look nout like an 8 year old - its the 30DD chest that does it me thinks!).

One thing about article - a healthy BMI is normally classed as 25 and under not 24 and under.... Hmmmm

Otherwise nice to read :)

don't like the "if you have a lot to lose (over half a stone)" line
18/10/2004 at 15:12
missed that the first time...consult your GP!


doesn't seem consitant with the body of the article saying 'you could easily lose 10lbs over 6 weeks' (follwing these guidelines)

thought the rest of it was quite well thought out though

hm
so i do nearly all my runs early am and do a reasonble mileage too

so do I need to see my GP 4 times - once for each half stone I need to lose!
:-)

hahahahaah
nice one Pix
(registers with GP and books 6 appointments)

yep! sure my Gp has better things to do than discuss my losing half a stone! (even if I only had half to lose in the first place!)
