  1. Pyjamazombie (cool name), personally, my boobs have no affect on my self worth. I'm happy and confident as I am. I think I would treat it like any other body mod, to get my body looking the way I want it to. I have wide hips and a big bum, so it would be nice to have larger boobies to go with that I've always admired the curvy (but healthy) look and I want that for myself. Sheltiechick, I get what you're saying. I am also afraid of the risks (and the cost). But I think I could be brave enough to bite the bullet Seven of Seven - of course this counts. I don't think there's any difference between wanting bigger boobs or smaller boobs.
  2. I've got no plans (yet) to have this done, but I've thought about it. I don't have small boobs, but they have been the first things to get smaller as I lose weight. I just think if I've put in so much hard work to get the body that I want, then there's nothing wrong with just putting the cherry on the cake. Has anyone had one? Is anyone going to have one? Would you consider it? What are people's thoughts on this subject?
  3. I just got a VCH piercing this weekend (if you don't know what it is, don't Google it at work!) I'd had it done previously but my boyfriend at the time said he didn't like it. He said he felt like he was going to break his teeth on it - I kept telling him that if he was using his teeth then he was doing it wrong! Safe to say he's no longer around. Anyway went and got it re-done on Saturday and I am in love! I was supposed to go to the gym this morning but thought it might be a good idea to give it another day just to heal a little more. But I'll be there tomorrow and truth be told I'm excited. I don't know whether it's going to hurt or make working out more fun. I've heard that some women experience the stair machine totally differently after they've had it done Has anyone else got one? I might post this in the woot room too as I'm so proud of myself for doing what I want to do and not what someone else wanted me to do. And also for plucking up the courage to go and do it again.
  4. I was getting shin pains when I wasn't wearing the right shoes (note; converse are not good for running in) so I went and got fitted for a pair of running shoes and the pain stopped immediately
  5. Dorothy Beal runs a running blog (www.mile-posts.com) and wrote some good safety articles about running in the morning. You can find them here and here. Although she talks about early morning running, lots of these tips can be applied to running late at night too
  6. I'm pleased with today's progress. I fasted from 9pm to 11am. Although it was only 14 hours I did manage to do my workout in a fasted state which I haven't done at all this week. I ran to the gym which took about 20 minutes and then did an overall workout. I actually did some squats in the squat rack today rather than the smith machine and I felt much better. I can definitely squat lower and get full ROM. I'm excited because tomorrow I'll be going back to my HIIT classes. I've found some more free sessions I can go to which is great
  7. Day 4 was successful and managed to fast for 16 hours. I also brought up the subject of the Paleo diet with my boyfriend and he seems to be on board. I'm excited to try it Day 5 was also successful but quite easy to do really. I fasted for 15 hours and had a (what I think is) a Paleo lunch of a mushroom and onion omelette. I would usually have added cheese but didn't this time. I did also have a tub of sweets but haven't had anything else. Haven't kept track of my water consumption as its the weekend but I think its about a litre and a half. All in all things are going well
  8. Bit bummed that my monthly progress pics don't actually show any progress

      It's okay, take it as a learning situation - is there something you're trying right now that maybe isn't working just right?

      I think my problem is that I'm not trying anything. Looking back on the past month I really haven't been eating very well. I have decided that I'm going to clean up my diet though, because I know I won't get anywhere if I don't :) I'll be starting Paleo asap

  9. Hi Jess (that's my sisters name) Thanks for the tip. We do have a squat rack. The trainer who told me to use the smith machine also told me to stay away from that. I'm starting to think she might not know what the hell she's on about. I'll give it a go next time
  10. Hi Ladies, Slightly off topic but still relevant... I'm kind of a novice to squatting, I've been doing bodyweight squats for a while and started using weights about 2 months ago. I had a free personal training session a while ago and she gave me a 20lb barbell to use which I was finding quite easy so she took me over to the Smith Machine and I can do 40lbs. The thing is, I don't feel comfortable on the Smith machine and I know I can go lower when I don't use it, but I don't think I could lift a 40lb barbell over my head to get it onto my shoulders in the first place! What should I do?
  11. Day 3 was another good day - I fasted from 9pm to 1pm so a good solid 16 hours. I find water and coffee helps suppress any hunger in the morning. I kept track yesterday and had 3 cups of coffee and 1 cup of tea throughout the 7 and a half hours I was at work. But I also managed 3 litres of water in that time which is good. I did have the other half of the pizza I had earlier in the week for dinner though. I'm not too bothered by it. I didn't get to the gym but I will be going tonight. Overall, day 3 was more succesful than day 2 and I'm starting to think I might be able to make this a regular thing
  12. Thanks Misugrrl. I've always eaten breakfast. But I went into hospital about two weeks ago and couldn't eat anything for 24 hours before hand. I managed to do it and I wasn't as hungry as I thought I was going to be, which gives me hope that I can IF regularly Just got to keep on keeping on
  13. You sound about the same size as me Yeah proper squats are hard! In the HIIT classes I used to go to we would have to squat as low as possible and then jump as high as we could for about a minute, non stop, three or four times. Safe to say I thought I was going to fall down the stairs afterwards.
  14. Hi Shaunty Wow! Well done on the clothes front. What a huge difference. It would be really interesting to know some of your before measurements compared to now. I had the same problem when I lost weight. None of my clothes fitted and I felt rubbish that I couldn't show off my awesome new bod. Like you I didn't have the money to buy a whole new wardrobe, so I invested in a sewing machine instead. I had tried some simple sewing in the past - cushions and square things mostly - so tailoring was a whole new ball game. But there's lots of helpful tutorials on Youtube and other sewing blogs. It's actually quite easy to take in most things, as long as you can sew in a straight line! Good job with your workouts as well. Although I do think you need to find some weights for your squats. 110 squats is a lot! You'll definitely find it more challenging if you can add a few kgs Cuckoo
  15. Hi Jmm and Alice, Thanks for the encouragement - I know that one bad day isn't the end of the world. I'm hoping to fast for between 15-17 hours from and then eat the remaining 7-9 hours. I'd like to work my way up to 24 hours eventually, every now and again. But for the moment I'm just cutting out breakfast really. I'm hoping this will help me eat in a calorie defecit. I'm not too good at that. I'm trying again today. I had my dinner last night at about 9pm and it's now 10:30am. Keeping the hunger pains at bay by drinking water. I've already drunk a litre and a half and I'm about to go and get more. If I can wait til about 1pm for my lunch then I'll be happy Cuckoo
