'Cos I've just eaten all the cooking chocolate!sad

I can sympathise! I've gone off track this evening. Still only about 30gr carb but I'm so carb sensitive it could have an impact. Had a really crappy week and I'm so tired and fed up I just lost my fight this evening. I would certainly like to feel there was some continued support thread even if it wasn't a full scale BC.

I think I've got a severe case of middle-of-the-summer-holidays-and-the-dc-are-on-the-verge-of-starting-WW3-and-I'm-fed-up-of-being-the-United-Nations-and-I-need-a-break-itis.

And I think I've put on weight. I do not want to weigh myself sad

Oh yes, I hear you. It's so hard to keep on the straight and narrow over the holidays. I bet the United Nations peacekeepers eat loads of carbs grin

Tomorrow my well-meaning mum is taking me and DD out for afternoon tea for our birthday treat. That'll be wall to wall carbs then. And she'll want to see me tucking in heartily.

I'd definitely be up for a new bootcamp or a kick-up-the-arse new term support thread.

Me too. I have just seen a photo of myself and it's not pretty. Autumn bootcamp definitely necessary. So how do we start one then?

miffy49 Sun 17-Aug-14 16:42:19

I think we all go on our knees and beg Biwi to organise it!

HRH008isback Mon 18-Aug-14 10:45:08

Right, am off to beg BIWI by pm!

BIWI Mon 18-Aug-14 21:42:05


Next Bootcamp will start on Monday 29 September.

CQ Mon 18-Aug-14 22:43:18


I think hmm

HRH008isback Tue 19-Aug-14 13:34:50

SixImpossible Tue 19-Aug-14 18:18:00

Oh god what have I started? This means that I will have to weigh myself now!

(But, thanks smile)

New to this but keen to start

HRH008isback Tue 19-Aug-14 20:58:18

Yes, SixImpossible it's all your fault - thankyou grin

BIWI Tue 19-Aug-14 21:20:25

... as long as Sayra is happy to do the Spreadsheet again, of course!

Have had to start already as I ate my bodyweight in Cornwall.

Have lost 8lbs since Saturday! smilesmilesmile

BIWI Wed 20-Aug-14 06:42:02

That's brilliant!

SayraT Wed 20-Aug-14 06:53:19

Yes of course!

Biwi, SayraT you are both absolute stars! flowers flowers

I don't think I'll be able to participate as I've only got half a pound to go to my goal weight so I'll be strictly on maintenance by then. grin

miffy49 Fri 22-Aug-14 17:22:17

Show off! grin

StuntNun Fri 22-Aug-14 17:28:03

I hope I get there my Monday Miffy but I never get to goal by the last weigh in of Bootcamp, it's always the day after! I'll have been bootcamping for 14 months by then so it'll be a real challenge. I'm looking forward to being able to eat carbier stuff such as apples and sweet potato, and reintroducing rice will make life much easier.
