Welcome everyone!

Here's the Spreadsheet of Fabulousness that the lovely Sayra creates and cares for. Come and confess all.

If you prefer, you can use the individual Weight Tracker, provided by MNHQ, which will open (I hope) tomorrow morning.

Please make sure that you know the rules, and that you know about the allowed veg - look at the tabs at the bottom of the spreadsheet - and think about printing them off so that you have them to hand

If you have any questions, obviously you can ask them here, but there's also a specific questions thread because the chat threads can move so quickly that questions can get missed.

Unfortunately I'm working pretty full on for the next three days, so won't be around very much - I'll try and check in as much as I can, but in reality I'm not going to be around very much until Thursday - apologies in advance.

Very good luck to you all

If you are not on the spreadsheet then add your name at the bottom of the list in column A and I will sort it later. I made the spreadsheet this afternoon so may have missed some people who signed up later.

waves to everyone, i need the accountability of bootcamp as have been very slowly steering off course. Looking forwards to starting but not weighing in!

About 3st 9lbs to go - ish depending on the damage this weekend has done.

I am 2st down from my heaviest thanks to previous bootcamps, biwi and bootcampers - bring it on!!

tutorproof Sun 10-May-15 23:43:01


I have lost 4 lbs in the past week but I'm hoping you will all keep me going for the next 10.

I have 17 weeks until I'm 40!

Morning smile

I've been low carbing for the past few weeks but now it's time to get serious As I go back to work in 7 weeks after a year on maternity sad. I did boot camp before getting pregnant (which I just realised is almost 2 years ago!) and I believe it helped me get pregnant as it definitely helped my pcos. I tried to low carb in pregnancy but it went out the window when I went off meat and veg apart from blt sandwiches hmm

I'm hoping to lose as much as poss as I have about 4 or 5 stone to lose blush

Good luck ladies smile

MrsKoala Mon 11-May-15 06:51:27

Hello all. Hope you are doing well. I'm going to join in but may not be able to keep up with the chat as much as I'd like. I will lurk and catch up where I can. I have put on 3lb since last bc but want to lose 8lb if I can. It may not be easy as I'm within my healthy range now.

Can someone add me please? I can't seem to. My pad seems to be broken and keeps randomly shutting down pages confused

Good luck everyone.
