Half a stone by Halloween, anyone?!

I have been trying and failing to lose half a stone since Christmas, the failure is mainly due to my enduring of wine and chocolate but I just feel a bit out of my comfortable zone and would fit my clothes better if I managed to shift it!

I am 9st 6lb and would like to be 9st. I'm only 5ft 3in so really feel that extra half zone.

I am going to start using MFP every day (always used to but have had the summer off to enjoy ice creams and BBQs and chilled wine), once the DC are back at school I am going to start running again 2 or 3x a week (have not found time to over the hols esp as I have started working three days a week). I feel that half a stone two months ought to be really achievable but I really need to stick with it and not go "Oh fuckit" and fall off the wagon too often

Anyone with a similar amount to lose like to join me for mutual support?

Well I have been working all weekend (long days) and eaten my bodyweight in hotel breakfasts and stodgy food so am expecting a shocking weight this week, in fact I might give it a couple of days before I go anywhere near the scales!

I did have some very nice food though including a Toblerone milkshake which was just incredible so worth an extra pound or five two!

Toblerone milkshake sounds lovely! Well worth it.

I just had a wisdom tooth out so can't really eat anything much. Except icecream maybe??!

Just over 9 stone 7 this morning so another half a pound off. In fairness I ate a lot if rubbish this week and no exercise. Back on track next week but I think I have lost my half a stone by Halloween hooray! As long as I don't put on weight for the next two weeks grin.

How's everyone else doing??

I'm still 9st 2lb which is not too bad given have not really been that good this week!

Hi everyone smile

I am still hovering around the 9st 2lb mark and have decided that I will be happy sticking at this weight, I feel much better having lost 4lb but I don't want to not be able to enjoy wine and chocolate at all, which is what it seems it would take for me to go any lower! I am still running 3x week and really enjoying it.

How is everyone else doing?

Meg That's great, well done!

Nugget Well done on the new ssvele you! Keep it up! (Or down.)

It is hard to know what my weight is, scales here are totally unreliable. I think I might be around the 9 stone 5 mark, and am still aiming for less than 9 stone.
