    I find it much better than an hour of cardio. Constantly pushing myself so I can barely see :p:. Though I struggle to do it with swimming because my breathing goes to rubbish
    Yeah i know what you mean, i definitely prefer it to doing long periods of 'normal' cardio and find it a lot easier to motivate myself if i think 'ok well it's just 15 minutes out of my day so no excuse not to'. I do mine on an exercise bike...probably be better for me to do it running but i loathe running.

    I do mine on a static bike too sometimes, soooo tiring. Running is really good but tbh do something you will be able to keep up and not hate!!!

    My problem is having a "treat" like a chocolate bar never=1 chocolate bar and more often that not equates to massive binging on ****.
    I don't know if this will help but I find it better to eat dark chocolate to milk - I prefer milk chocolate, but it's so hard to stop after a small quantity! With dark chocolate I can have a small amount and it's easier not to pig out.

    I do it on a stationary bike, it really really kills my thighs.

    Can I join you ladies? I am 10 stone 1 and I am 5'7.5.

    I have lost 5 pounds, but would really like to loose another 15 pounds minimum. Then I will try and maintain my weight around the 9 stone mark.

    With 15 pounds left to loose, I want to do it properly (not too quickly) so hopefully I will be at 9 stone by the end of November! Wish me luck!
    I find it really hard to eat enough when trying to loose weight. If I am good and Eat fruit for breakfast, sandwich and snack a jacks for lunch and fish and vegetables for dinner that is only about 950 calories maximum? Obviously, I should have healthy snacks inbetween meals but I am not very good at that because when I get a taste for food inbetween meals I end up eating loads!

    Anyway, we will see how I have managed in 2 months time!
