Well done 3girls! What an achievement

I have been awful this week with emotional eating so have decided not to stress myself and try to get my head back in the right place and get off the gain that I know I will have on Thursday sad

I've not heard of cauliflower pizza but smash pizza can be tolerable but the best is chicken pizza grin

Just checking in...hope that you're enjoying the last few days of your holiday Blondes

Will catch up later with all the news...I lost another 1/2 lb this week making 11.5 lbs lost in total, just 2.5 lbs to the 1 stone. I'm doing some success express days this week to try and boost it!

Happy eating grin

Littlemousewithcloggson Tue 21-May-13 11:11:35

Yay, I lost 6lbs which is a stone in 2 weeks. So excited. And I didn't have to resort to going in just underwear either! (although I'm seriously considering the shaving and bra less suggestions for the future!)

laughalot Tue 21-May-13 14:09:51

Well done everyone, blondes bannedfrom fb pmsl !!!! Did you have your boobies out ?

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 21-May-13 18:57:56

No. Was on a nudist beach and took a photo - tho only showed his bare bum and back

Weeks ban ffs. Ends Friday and will add rest of holiday pics

Last day tomorrow of holiday and bad food - will start diet Friday again

'Gulps' sure I've put on at least 1/2 a stone

Curlywurlysareyum Tue 21-May-13 21:44:57

Lost 2 and a half tonight!! So pleased! Feel like my target is within reach!

Thedetective - yes I agree - life outside with sw hard. I find jacket potatoes good if I'm shopping. Or a salad from subway. Boring but better than not going out!!

And yes I get the whole weigh in thing - I always wear the same clothes and even take my watch off!! Whatever u do first week after that doesn't matter. I don't eat dinner as I didn't first week. Now I wish I had. Not willing to gain half a pound and yet how mad is that??! I think we do go a bit crazy. I've a friend who never weighs herself. Just goes by her clothes and cuts down when she feels bigger. I wish I could be more like her.

Curlywurlysareyum Tue 21-May-13 22:02:17

Oh blondes - that's hilarious!!

androbbob Tue 21-May-13 22:15:57

blondes you are sooo naughty! It was a lovely photo too! Did someone complain? Cheeky blighters!

Managed a gain of 1.5lbs on Fri WI (had to go to another group as couldn't do Monday as usual). Then was exceptionally good for the remainder of the weekend, even been at a communion n the Sunday and rolled in with a 2.5lb loss! So now have 2lbs to get my Club 10 and then another 1lb for the 1.5 stone award. Will have to wait for 3rd June as away at Center Parcs next week! Will have to eat wisely and walk loads!

Lost 3and a half pounds in last two weeks! And that's ten pounds altogether so getting there slowly.

Off out for dinner tonight though, hope I can be sensible.

Huffpot Thu 23-May-13 07:30:16

4lbs on at WI for me but fully expected and deserved as I was eating around myself and went out Tuesday and didn't get home till 4am! The toddlers woke me up at 7am and I had my first hangover in 5 years! Still back on it now and bought a 12 week countdown so time to knuckle down!

Well done on the losses - can't name as on phone (as always) and blonde sounds like holiday is going well and the photo sounded nice too wink

IsaacCox Thu 23-May-13 07:36:29

I've lost 2lb this week. Need to get at least 2lb next week for my first mini target of 7lb by the time we go for a weekend away where I'll try not to put it all back on!

Well done everyone on their losses smile

used2bthin Thu 23-May-13 09:57:11

Any recipe recommendations? I use the website but almost have too much choice. Am struggling to feed dh who is a full fat lots of meat type of eater! If he doesn't feel he's had enough meat he ends up going to the shop and binge eating chocolate which is not that nice for me as I sit eating my muller light!

Usedtobe, I cook the 'beef and bean hot pot' and dh really likes it (he is also a full fat meat person!). The recipe is on the website and is really easy and delicious.

Well done on 2lb off Isaac :-)

I lost 3lb this week and that gives me my 1 stone award! Couldn't believe it at WI as I have been plodding along at a pound a week up to now. I'm worried it was an error and i will be +4 next week!

IsaacCox Thu 23-May-13 10:04:43

I love diet coke chicken (you can use diet lemonade/fanta or whatever) with stir fried veg and either noodles, egg fried rice or chips.

Cook chopped chicken breasts and an onion in a pan with fry light. Once browned, cover in diet pop, some passata, Chinese 5 spice and Worcester sauce. Bring to the boil then simmer until the sauce has thickened and reduced. Stir fry some veg and add to the chicken. Serve with rice/noodles or whatever.

I did this last night with diet lemonade. I thought it'd be gross but it was lovely. It was just chicken in the sauce (just lemonade and tinned toms because I didn't have passata in) with chips and boiled mixed veg.

IsaacCox Thu 23-May-13 10:06:02

used2bthin Thu 23-May-13 12:42:52

HeartOfDixie Thu 23-May-13 13:41:54

Hello! And thank you for the name check Blondes. Can I ask what is a mugshot?

Well first weigh in and lost 1.5 lbs which is good, especially as I haven't fully got my self organised.

But the leader of my group is useless and uninspiring which is a real shame. Sadly no other groups or times suit my schedule so will stick with it!

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 23-May-13 14:14:46

1.5 is a good loss

Mugshot are free smile basically pasta in a cup and I live off them

Tomato or sweet and sour are yummy

Cheese one is think 1 syn but is bland as is the chicken one

iklboo Thu 23-May-13 17:35:32

Thanks for the name check blondes. Good to see you back.

Tonight's tea was herbed mince cous cous. Except we forgot the herbs. Still, it was tasty enough.

Got a wedding on Saturday. Full day job. We'll try to be as good as possible! DH's birthday next week and hols after that so naughty bad times here we come!! grin

Hi. Weighed in on Monday. Got a few stone to lose after giving up smoking a year ago. Am trying hard but have real trouble getting my head round extra easy.

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 23-May-13 18:29:49

ikiboo - wheres your wedding? mines luton - wonder if at same bash - that would be funny grin

isaac it's taken me 10 weeks to lose a stone. That included a big gain at Easter though.
Welcome back off holiday blondes

I've gone rather off plan today so will need to be really good for the rest of the week. Of course it's a bank holiday weekend so I have some meals out to contend with again [sigh]
But for now I'm off to celebrate my loss with a big Aero blush
