I'll be at the Uiversity of Nottingham, not Nottingham Trent , but hey, what a coincidence .

I'm at Jubilee Campus, not sure if that'll be near you or not.......will have to consult one of those horrible map things that my blonde brain can't cope with

I thought this thread was dead andyou'd all hit your goals and run - very quickly - away. The scales are back in operation at my gym but my weight can fluctuate by 2kg in 24 hours, is this normal?

Last month was my month of exercise insanity, ran the South Downs marathon, hilly as anything but beautiful scenery, then 2 days later cycled 500 miles from London to Glasgow in 5 days. However, still no weight loss as was mainlining malt loaf and dry roasted peanuts. I'm going to to read back and see how you all havebeen getting on. Whilst sipping a glass of red...........

Well done Kim on going to uni - how exciting!

KateF - how on earth did you manage to cycle 500 miles 2 days after running the marathon. I could barely get out of bed 2 days after the marathon let alone contemplate cycling! How did you feel?

Have been doing a bit more running this week as its been cooler - although struggled last night as was so windy didn't feel like I was actually moving forward! Am thinking of doing the Bristol half marathon in September - my uncle lives there and is going to do it as well and that will give me an incentive to get my running going again.

As for the weight loss - well we'll start again on Monday as have a nice bottle of Pimms to drink first!!

Priscilla, it felt OK but by day 5 of the cycle I was just about finished. Cooler weather this week has certainly helped with the running, just need to get the eating back on track again. Enjoy your Pimms!

Hello all

Has been a nightmare the last month or so...apologies for not popping in here. work and family have been chaotic and my OH has been quite poorly...awaiting some tests at the moment. I have some time off work now and I am trying to catch up!

Pixie - APOLOGIES...for some unkown reason, I was ignoring you on the forums...not intentional I can assure you...must have clicked something by mistake! There were others as well. Nayway, I'm relaly sorry, hope to catch up with your progress now.

My weighgt loss has been rubbish...but now have lost about 5 pounds. Running has been hit and miss, but hope to get back into a schedule soon!

How's everyone doing with their goals? Been following this thread since the beginning- although I don't have any weight to loose, am still struggling with maintaining a healthy balance (I weigh 8st 2, but only through lots of exercise and restriction on diet)/ This thread in fab and I hope you're all meeting your goals x

I'm still keeping to the no chocolate/sweets/biscuits/cake/crisps thing.  I did break if for my birthday.  I am currently losing weight, though how much is due to the diet restrictions and how much to having lots of miles to cover for my job at the moment I'm not sure!

I don't understand that last post.

I can see that this drink would consist of virtually no calories, but in what way is it a 'fat burner'? Surely the key thing is what you eat for the rest of the day?
