If you could click your fingers and lose weight instantly, how much would you choose to drop?

I weighed myself this morning and am 11lbs over my usual weight. The extra weight is leftover from having dc4. I have have not made any real effort to get to this point (a fair bit has been lost so far- not sure how much as have not been weighing myself) but I wish i could click my fingers and vanish this last bit. The extra pounds are sitting on my tummy, arse, thighs and hips. I would like the squishy bits to be banished!

If you could drop weight instantly, how much would you shift and where on your body would it come from?

None, but I would really like to put on muscle. I hate feeling feeble.

Latara Thu 06-Dec-12 17:38:22

Actually i need to lose 3st 6lb (just weighed myself). Horrendous sad

Cornflowers- hmmm.good question. I would not want to stay this size forever even if I could eat what I wanted. I want that 11lbs gone. The squishy tum would piss me off too much. Vanity is quite maddening!

Then i will be 10 stone. I used to think i was fat at 10 stone. As if... how stupid was that.

5 stone blush

10lbs off my hips and belly and redistribute it to my face and bony upper bod.

Now where did I put my magic wand...

2 and a half stone.

2 stone 3 lbs off pre-pregnancy weight - would be back at my lightest, maintainable weight.

LaQueen - the getting the face right thing is no easy feat. Gaunt cheeks vs a slightly double chin.

3 pounds. Then I will have acheived my goal weight of 9 and a half stone, down from 12 stone 1 in May when I started. Can I do this by Xmas?

3 stone - mainly including the floppy skin from having dd tightening up...

Click Click Thanks Please!

I'd be happy to lose a stone, even half a stone would do. I don't look overweight with my clothes on and still have a healthy BMI, but my tummy is a problem area despite only being size 8-10 (but then I am under 5ft!) so have to be careful what I wear.

3 stone would be lovely. The annoying thing is I already lost those 3 stone about 4 years ago and I put it all back on - I feel such a failure!

PessaryPam Thu 06-Dec-12 17:50:24

1 stone here. Used to be over 18, now am 10 and half.

abcdangel Thu 06-Dec-12 17:51:57

Wow Pam (can't bring myself to call you pessary) - how have you done that?

ISeeThreadPeople Thu 06-Dec-12 17:52:52

I need to GAIN a few pounds. Was fine a fortnight ago but had horrendous norovirus and lost 8 or 9lbs in a week and am now underweight. I look old and haggard.

If we're doing clicky fingers though, can I click my fingers and wish that my Dad could appreciate what he's achieved this year? He's gone from 18st to 11st since last Christmas (sheer hard work) but has swung the other way, is obsessed with food, barely eating and his nurse has referred him to an eating disorders clinic. sad

About 5 stone off my steroid belly! Bad enough being ill without the meds taking the piss too.

MorrisZapp Thu 06-Dec-12 17:58:44

One stone would be smashing, two would be bloody fantastic.

Can it be done, with no effort?

Sigh.

sparkle12mar08 Thu 06-Dec-12 17:59:09

17lbs would see me at my perfect weight. I've lost over two stone in the past twelve months and been within 7lbs of that ultimate goal, but have gained little rebound weight in the past two months. So I need to refocus and get back into my slow but steady groove!

HairyGrotter Thu 06-Dec-12 17:59:22

I've already lost 50lbs in the last 2 years but would like to lose another 28lbs by June

FestiveDigestive Thu 06-Dec-12 18:06:15

At my pre-pregnancy weight I would have liked to lose 10lb, mostly from my stomach & side flanks. That would take me to the size I was before I got married, then I ate a lot of cheese/Parma ham during my honeymoon grin, put on quite a few pounds and have never been able to lose it.

<insert right-on feminist statement about socialisation of women and body image here>

Three stone. No, FOUR stone, then I could spend Christmas eating pies to put some weight back on. grin

toboldlygo Thu 06-Dec-12 18:20:07

None. If I were unhappy about my size I'd have done something about it.

fivefoottwowitheyesofblue Thu 06-Dec-12 18:22:59

None. Quite happy with what the scales say but my goodness I would love a magic button to click so it all tones up.

5 stone.
