Morning all!

Come and confess all

I suspect a lot of us are postponing our final weigh in till a bit later in the week, given the cheating falling off the wagon that's been going on!

Hope everyone has a good last week. Still time to drop a couple of pounds!

Deffo need the bootcamp fire thread to keep going for general chat and lc support until we are all desperate in January to get really serious and strict again!

Sorry I haven't yet done spreadsheet - will do so when I get home this evening. I was a lb down this morning despite wine and delicious meal out last night, but think I will push my luck with lunch out today so might use today's weigh in figure for the final one tomorrow!

i agree we need some support to keep going even if its not strict bootcamp. its nice just checking in to see how everyone is doing and having the occasional moan smile we don't want to get too sucked in by all the carbs over christmas!!

Scrambled egg bacon mushrooms for breakfast, curried butternut squash soup for lunch, and some Greek yoghurt.

A gallon of water.

I have a hangover. Damn you mulled wine.

Aaarrrggghhh I always forget water, must drink water. Do you think we could make some mulled water?!? I'd probably drink that by the galloon load judging by previous drink guzzling evidence...

I find that I need water more now - I get incredibly thirsty. I drink a pint first thing, as well as a cup of decaf tea and a berocca in a pint of water so I knowi have had approx a litre before I even get on with my day. Always drink at least 1 500ml bottle of water at work, 2 cups with lunch, usually another 500ml bottle in the afternoon and then usually two more pints in the evening. So that's well over 2 litres a day.

Yes I would def be up for a continuing LC support thread!! You lovely nest of vipers, you grin

Had a long lie today, so no breakfast. Lunch was 4 rashers of bacon and 2 fried eggs, with coffee with cream. Water at work this afternoon and I am cooking turkey for tea. Inlaws and DH will have potatoes, I will just load up on the veggies.

vnmum my DH also has episodes of depression and I had horrible PND after Ds was born, so I can fully sympathise with you. It's really really hard, so ask for whatever help you need in RL. DH can be particularly horrible to me as his partner when he's down. It's as if he keeps up the front for the rest of the world, inc work, and then takes all the stress out on his nearest and dearest. It's not fair but it's how it is. Look after yourself, it's easy to get sucked down too so make sure you get what you need too. (Hugs)

Eve all, hope you have all had great weekendssmile

vnmum not sure, she is 12, lost so much weight in a week, cant clean herself, only just making it to the litter tray, not eating and just sleeps and drinks watersad off to vets tomorrow first thing. Dreading it!

A continuing support thread sounds fabgrin

Bacon and eggs for brunch and roast chicken and veg for dinner. Wont discuss yesterday's food and wineblush

Snacks - pork scratchings, 2 teaspoons of sainsbos basics peanut butter

Tea - green salad with mushrooms, celery and cucumber, and thick slices of gammon ham, with mayo.

Gallons more water. A sleep on the sofa.

Off to bed in a mo, knackered, such a lightweight these days.

If we didn't have another low carb thread I'd probably just post here, chatteringly inanely to myself, telling the ether all about what I'd had to eat, and about job interviews.... grin

Man many Weeks ago I was on a Giordano chat thread. I found it helpful and inspiring. Then I skipped town! Piled on ths kilos and well ate a lot of bread. I'm signing in here so I don't let my self run crazy until January. The plan is one whole week of Giordano now today this week I so nit tomorrow). Then not camp light till Januaryi'm living with my parents for the foreseeable future which is becoming harder and harder but aim not going to resort to food as coping mechanism. Oh and on phone using the app so apologise for spelling gedetc. Have has a brief skim and it sound like you are all a bunch of losersgrin grin grin grin grin

hazchem Sun 09-Dec-12 20:26:19

Feeling your pain re in laws. I would be drowning in a vat of sherry....

BIWIshYouAMerryChristmas Sun 09-Dec-12 22:43:53

We will definitely continue with the chat after next week! I think we all have too much invested here to let it stop grin

Really awful weekend for me, foodwise, so will be extra strict for the next couple of days.

Piffle Sun 09-Dec-12 23:06:07

I've had a fair to middling weekend.
We had beer on Friday. 2 mth point, just wanted a night off, so we did. Ad we both felt rubbish the next day and decided it wasn't worth the hassle!
Eating a few wobbles due to PMT but nothing massively off limits.
Still I expect I've StS or worse...
New week!!!!

ViperInTheManger Sun 09-Dec-12 23:40:27

Willie Thanks for doing spreadsheet.

hazchem I was just about to Google giordano when you explained!

I have had a horrendous week as I had Xmas "do"s on Thurs and Fri then a birthday party on Sat. Anyway I have just eaten everything in sight and am back to being sensible tomorrow. At least I have got all of the celebrating out of the way for a couple of weeks!

Thank God I don't have to weigh tomorrow! I'm fairly sure I wouldn't be the bigest loser after all this!

caramelwaffle Sun 09-Dec-12 23:41:51

I demand mulled water! (hic)

I'll borrow that veil... blush

caramelwaffle Sun 09-Dec-12 23:42:24

Well done biggest losers!

Having enjoyed a mini mince pie yesterday, and being slighly slow this morning getting the kids up etc, I haven't bothered to weigh today. However, I will do it tomorrow when things are less rushed. I think regular weigh ins are the secret to keeping weight off. That and wearing a waistband. If you are aware that things are getting tight it does rein you in a little.

With no weighing, no waistbands and a lot of eating and drinking, I can easily shovel on 1/2 st in December. Not this year! I am going to try to stay level, with a view to another bootcamp come January.

Well done to our losers. Have a good day everyone .
