Totally loving my curves at the moment but really need to get back to doing some exercise as my bums getting flat and my tummys starting to stick out :/ just soooo busy! Ugh. (And ill now too)
My friend has lost 8 stone (=112lbs or 50kg) this year! He weighed just over 20stone and now weighs 12 something and he looks unrecognisable. He’s been going to the doctor at least monthly and everything’s been ok… and he has no loose skin!
Anyway so the point of my post is I’ve convinced him to start a blog (on Wordpress) and we’re guna write it together.
We’ve talked a lot about his weight loss and I’ve learnt so much from it (he’s tracked absolutely everything and there’s so much data, 3500 calorie deficit really does= 1lb lost!)
I just think its going to be a really good blog and yeah, hoping to get a bit of support from you guys :)
More details to follow
Me today- looking awesome even if I do say so myself ;) went on a run this morning too- 5k, 29 mins… No stopping at all for the first time in ages
This is mainly because I went running with my friend who is significantly better than me and I joined him for his ‘cool down’ (wtf?) so he kept the pace =D

20 min from scratch pan pizza
For the base:
1.5 cups self raising flour,
0.5 cups water,
pinch of salt
and a tbsp oil (optional it just makes the dough a bit stretchier but if you want a thick base you could skip it)
Put a frying pan on high with a little oil
Mix dough together and roll out on a floured surface and push into the pan
Put toppings onto dough while its in the pan on the heat
(I used passata mixed with garlic and basil, mozzarella, cheddar and ricotta and some fresh basil)
Leave on the heat for about 5 minutes (until the under side starts to firm up)
and then put the whole thing under a hot grill for a further 5 minutes or until dough has crisped up and the cheese is bubbly
