    Those are stupendous results. Seriously well done!!

    How did you do it, without losing weight? Almost everyone who achieves those sorts of reductions loses quite a bit of weight, and there are regularly people asking how to maintain their weight, but drop the blood scores.

    AndBreath I don't know why the scales are not showing much loss, I can only assume I am building muscle weight (which is heavier than fat) as my clothes are loads looser! :rolleyes:
