    Doing the swim leg of the half Ironman this weekend. My trainer is going to run and another one of his clients is doing the bike leg. I can't wait for my girls to see why Mommy has been away several nights a week! The 2 year old is running her second 1K next month while my husband, sister-in-law and I walk the 5K and my mini goal there is to significantly decrease my time from last year's results (where I was dead last).

    So awesome and inspiring!!! As I read previously on one of these forums: DFL > DNF > DNS

    You go girl!

    I got bloodwork at the doctor surgery at the end of October and I want to shut up the diabetes nurse who said it was impossible to lose weight and that I'd be classed diabetic 'forever'

    well I got news for you lady...

    Seriously? A health care worker actually said that to a patient? Unbelievable!!!

    Good for you for your reaction!

    it's the NHS, they just manage your sickness and don't actually expect you to get well

    me and my friends call it the National Sick Service

    she actually said 'if you take all these meds then you can manage and eat whatever you want, you probably will never lose the 140lbs, most people don't, and you'll be diabetic forever..'

    was I mad?

  • I started with 10% of my body weight. I still have about 10 pounds to go for my 1st goal.

    Getting to the two stone lost mark - two pounds to go.
    Hopefully I will soon be able to fit into my 36" waist trousers and get rid of the 38" ones I am wearing now.

    I use kettlebells for working out and I have just lost the equivalent of my 12 kg (26.4 pounds) bell :)

    It is great to pick it up and walk around with it for a few minutes

    My next goal is to lose the equivalent of my 16kg bell.

    After that I need to buy a 24 then a 32 which will be my final goal.
