What does Doctor Who’s Tardis, Lord of the Ring’s Gandalf, the seven wonders of the world, a woolley mammoth and three million LEGO bricks have in common? They’ll all be at BRICK 2015, the UK’s biggest LEGO show when it debuts at Birmingham’s NEC from 29th October to 1st November.

Brick 2015 at NEC Birmingham
Celebrating all things LEGO, BRICK creates a haven for fans of all ages with amazing builds, interactive features and live LEGO building – including the build of the official LEGO TARDIS from BBC’s Doctor Who that will be completed at the show.

Fans will also be treated to some amazing LEGO models that have never been seen in the UK before! Well known characters from the recent LEGO Movie, Lord of the Rings, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and many more will be ready for plenty of photo opportunities.

Master builder and founder of BRICK 2015 Warren Elsmore will be bringing the Wonders of the World to the NEC including likes of the Great Wall of China, Stonehenge and the Grand Canyon. From ancient icons such as the Hanging Gardens of Babylon through to modern masterpieces like the International Space Station, see them all in BRICK form.

Life size sabre toothed tiger
There will also be amazing creations from professional LEGO builders Bright Bricks, who will be bringing a life size woolley mammoth and sabre toothed tiger that have to been seen to be believed. The mammoth alone is nearly 5m long over 1m wide and nearly 3m tall.  She is made from over 250,000 LEGO bricks and weighs approximately one tonne on her base.

Over three million LEGO blocks in huge ‘BRICK Pits’ will encourage adults and children of all ages to play and start building their own creation or they can help work on a larger build. If you need an expert to show you how it’s done, the Fan Zone will blow your mind with some epic LEGO structures rarely seen in the UK.

Picture Update: The Cambridge Diet; Weeks 6, 7 & 8

I'm back with a update! I am pleased to say I am still on the diet and since my last post I have become a huge fan of the chocolate tetra shakes and also the lemon bars! It's funny how you become attached to a couple of flavours.

At my last weigh in on 22nd February 2015 I was 14 stone 5lbs.
I am pleased to say that at my weigh in on 15th March 2015 I was 13 stone 9lbs.

My start weight was 15 stone 8lbs; which means I am very close to my 2 stone loss - fingers crossed this weekend I go past that mark.

Picture of me the night before I started my weight-loss journey and then a picture taken 4 weeks into the diet.

Restarting the Cambridge Diet; Weeks 1 - 5

During the New Year lots of people make resolutions and in the top 10 is to loose weight.
I also made a resolution to loose weight. I felt it was the right time to get back into shape.
I went back to a diet I knew would work for me and shed the weight quickly and also help me in the long term with my health.
I searched on The Cambridge Diets webpage and found a consultant who was local to me.

Making that first point of contact is always hard as you don't know what to say also, suffering from anxiety I was nervous the consultant would judge me. Silly I know as she has been on the weight loss journey too.
I arrived and she was so welcoming and friendly. She explained how she was on the diet plan too and shared some tips.
I got onto the scales and got my start weight. I knew I was overweight but I didn't realise just how much!

I started my journey on 19th January 2015 and weighed 15 stone 8lbs with a BMI of 38.

I was 100% committed to do this diet and really wanted to be at my goal weight by the summer. I worked out on average I needed to loose roughly a stone a month to be on track.

At my last visit to my consultant, which was 22nd February 2015, I weighed 14 stone 5lbs.

Thats 1 stone 3lbs loss in just over 1 month.

I knew this was a diet I could do as before I had Jack I got to goal weight and maintained for over a year.

It's not an easy diet and you truly have to be focused and WANT to loose weight. It's not a quick fix; it's a diet which helps change the way you eat.

I will update with a post in about a month with an update on my total weight loss.

Any questions please feel free to contact me.
