For those curious here's my starting stats.
Weight: 11 stone 3 lbs
Height: 5 foot 5 inches
Bust: 38" (28H/30GG)
Waist: 28-29" depending on how much I've eaten.
So I'm overweight with big boobs and a biggish tummy. Not to mention thunderous legs, but they're mostly muscle. I'm hoping to get to a BMI of 22, this is 9 stone 7 lbs, I feel comfortable at this weight, and I was close to this weight for years until a stupid GP told me to stop cycling and I got addicted to doughnuts! But we'll see, I'd be happy to get down to 10 stone or 10 stone 7lbs. The main thing that attracted me to 5:2 is the health benefits, improved bloodwork, less chance of heart disease, diabetes, dementia etc etc. Granted most of the studies have been done in animals, but it might work in humans too.
And now for some pretty pictures. I've gone a bit mad buying Lady V dresses recently, here's my haul so far.
You may also have noticed, I've gone from red to strawberry blonde. I used Colour B4 from Boots to remove all the colour from my hair and this is what I was left with. I'm going to tone it a bit, but I think I'll keep it for a while, just as a change. What do you think?
