    * Did the whole family take part with the change of diet? - It was a lifestyle change and honestly we didn't as a family eat that bad, mine was portion serves and not eating. I never cooked 2 meals just tweaked to suit the kids or myself.

    * How did you handle the cravings? The first 2 weeks are the hardest with any change but when you have your mind in the right place it helps make it easier. As I say 'live a lifestyle not a diet' I still had the odd treat, otherwise you just go crazy you just know what you have you need to get rid of the next day with exercise and diet

    * What would you biggest tip for persevering with the new life style be? being honest is the biggest thing, honest to yourself, honest to your family. I know a lot of woman who won't tell their husbands how much the weigh, if you can't say it, you can't change it

    - how much excercise did you do? - first thing in the morning I did 20mins on the cross trainer whilst the kids got breakfast done, this was achievable for me, being so busy it wasn't too much time out of my day. 3 days a week I went to the gym for 45mins. It it's how much you train it is how you train, making the most of what you put in is important

    - how much of the weightloss is excercise v food - basically what I put in I had to make sure I burnt off more. I didn't calorie count, I was honest and used my head, when you think about it you really do know what is wrong and what is right

    - what kind of food? - Mix it up, I ate a variety of food. I love my lamb now and salmon filets. Vegetable mash with sweet potato is perfect instead of using potato which I never really ate any way. Salads and experiment with colours and flavours.

    - how has the weightloss impacted your life?
    - soosoososososos MUCH! I spent a few years trying everything and not really being commited, I did it in 3 months and have kept if off, actually lost a bit more than from the reveal night.

    you look fabulous. you look happy


    I lost a few kilo's over the last 2 years. Not nearly like you, but 8-10kgs and it has made such a difference to how I feel about myself.

    after reading your inspirational story, I have decided to get my act together and take that final step.

    for anyone who wants to join ... or just to come and offer some encouragement and advice - come on over (here)

    (but those who point and laugh while eating tim-tams ... will get an automatic perma-ban )

    Are you still keeping up with the good food and exercise?

    Sometimes if I do a '6 week challenge', for example, the first thing I do at the end of it is go to Baskin & Robbins for a large ice-cream with caramel sauce!!

    Have you kept the weight off, even lost more? Still exercising the same amount?

    How did you find nutritious recipes that are cheap and easy? I'm really struggling with this one.
