Good morning team . Woke up early for a wee - so have managed to read the whole of the weekends ramblings .... Have had every minute occupied with DD x3 - work will be a rest !
Am a Tuesday weigher - but good luck all . Back at lunch time ....

RatherBeOnThePiste Mon 17-Feb-14 07:02:08

Morning. brew

I've weighed now. Another pound gone. Huzzah.

My aim for the week is to eat LC meals not just LC ingredients and to keep on keeping on.

Good luck all.

AAaaargh, the weight tracker shows a picture of a biscuit! hmm

PseudoBadger Mon 17-Feb-14 07:14:19

1.8 off this week so i'm now 12 stone exactly smile Well done everyone!

StuntNun Mon 17-Feb-14 07:29:07

One pound off thank you ubercamp. I think my appetite has decreased so I may be eating too much out of habit.

teaandthorazine Mon 17-Feb-14 07:32:18

Haha, wtf with the picture of the biscuit where the weight tracker should be?! MNHQ's idea of a joke, perchance?

Anyway, after my mini tantrum yesterday I am 152lbs or 10st 12. So, going down, just. My stomach is well flat, though!

Stayed the same. But I"m not doing it properly because I am away from home. Just building the habit, really.

DurhamDurham Mon 17-Feb-14 07:38:38

Stayed the same but ok with that as I am aware that my cheating on Valentines Day ( and I'd like other minor indiscretions to be taken into consideration) will have had an impact.
I have 5 lbs more that I would like to loose between now and the end of bootcamp, I will do it I will! grin

GermanGirlinLondon Mon 17-Feb-14 07:39:01

I am down 2lbs this week, 14.4lbs in total so just over a stone. Feeling very happy and looking forward to summer. I 'only' have to lose another 30lbs to lose until the middle-end of June.

Well done to everybody.

arselikekylie Mon 17-Feb-14 07:42:54

The whoosh fairy visited just in time for weigh in. Total loss 15lb.

Very pleased with myself.

sybilfaulty Mon 17-Feb-14 07:57:24

Only one word for me this week. Oink. Sorry everyone.

5 weeks left. I shall make them count. In a good way

Well done losers and manly back pats yo all who have STS or gone in the wrong direction.

BIWI Mon 17-Feb-14 08:10:05

Oh my goodness! Sorry about the biscuit ... grin

zgaze Mon 17-Feb-14 08:22:25

Wow 16.2lb down in total. This is momentous - it's the first time I've been under 11 stone since before I had children. A really good loss of 3.4lb this week which is fairly surprising given that I had battered fish and chips on the beach in Whitstable at the weekend and some wine on Valentines day. I've also discovered fat bombs this week which are delicious and I've probably been eating too much of (have been making them with butter, cream cheese, coconut oil, pure cacao and a tiny bit of sweetener). I do wonder whether I should up my carbs a bit given that I'm breastfeeding, haven't really been counting but I think I'm generally at bootcamp levels with the odd transgression.

sueh95 Mon 17-Feb-14 08:32:29

STS - oh bugger - was 2lbs down on Friday and I so wanted to be a loser today!!! Well I'm not giving up - so there!!! I am definitely going to be a loser next week smile

SayraT Mon 17-Feb-14 08:34:22

Well done zgaze that is fantastic.

I've not done very well this week, had some unavoidable carbs and some avoidable ones and have put on 3lbs. I have one occasion this week on Thursday which will involve unavoidable carbs again but apart from that I will be back on track from today.

B: Coffee with cream

Rest of today's meals not decided but I have large mushrooms, a courgette and a aubergine in the fridge and lots of eggs so sure I'll be able to think of something.

ElBombero Mon 17-Feb-14 08:37:53

Still the effin friggin bastard same.

Ubercamp started this morning, can't say my green tea is anything near as satisfying as my strong creamy coffee sad

MyPreciousRing Mon 17-Feb-14 08:42:32

Well done to all you losers!
I'm .06 up... Not to worry, it was expected.
Will keep at it.
TRASHCAN shall try your water routine see if that helps.
Happy LCing everybody

Bugsylugs Mon 17-Feb-14 08:44:01

Morning all 1lb down slow but steady. Message to self leave the cheese in the fridge.
Gentle reminder to everyone who struggles remember to include all food and drink that goes into our mouths so many forget the little snacks at the fridge door ie chunks of cheese etc.
hope everyone has a great week

ChesterDrawers Mon 17-Feb-14 09:05:47

Didn't WI this morning, so used my weight from yesterday as couldn't face another disappointment. So that's 2.5 on this week.

Seriously debating ditching the scales fro good - have done this in the past with some success, but it was also behind the gain of a stone since the summer when I resolutely buried my head in the sand and refused to get on the scales.

Sigh sad

Hardcore BC this week:

B: Scrambled eggs, butter
L: broccoli and stilton soup
S: BPC
D: salmon, celeriac chips, courgetti in butter

Plus at least three litres of water.

Fell so badly off the wagon this weekend I may have concussion. Decided not to weigh for a few days. I just could not resist the temptation in front of me. I don't want to lose a lot but a don't want to get on an upward staircase. My size 12 jeans are loose in the waist but well filled in the hips. The size 14s have been removed. I don't want to go there again. Bmi is in the normal range but only just. I am really doing this now for health reasons. I have a health issue and it will help to get my weight down . I'm enjoying life at the minute. I think I just need a vision of biwi's big stick

Lovecat Mon 17-Feb-14 09:12:27

0.7 of a lb off, which is jeffing miraculous in spite of me being the carbiest twat of carby twatdom this weekend. It started Friday, had a slight recovery Saturday, then fell off the wagon into a vat of wine, hula hoops and party rings at DD's 9th birthday party. I suspect as soon as I drink any water I will gain a stone...
