Morning all.

Come and fill in the spreadsheet

Only two weeks to go before we finish this challenge. Time to drop a few more pounds!

But go easy with those strawberries ...

chipping, no, no jobs on the horizon. Has applied for a few but heard nothing back yet. None ideal though.
I have written everything down, done lots of calculations too. Currently trying to get holiday refunded but T&C say can only have 50% which means chucking away £500! It hurts. Can't see how we can afford to go as we have booked for end of August and need to drive from Yorkshire to the channel tunnel and then to just outside Paris. A lot of petrol! Plus eating whilst there hmm

Sorry for rambling and going off thread.

Loopy sad I think if it's still going to cost you £500 you should still go. It will be quite a lot of petrol, but not tons. You have to eat home or away and you can eat pretty cheaply in france if you are careful. It probably means any plans you had to go into Paris itself need to be cut right back... but I'm sure you can still have a good time.

week 10 thread here

Beryl, are we allowed to drink that fat flush water? It has fruit in it. Would love to try it if its allowed though!

Black, I'm not entirely sure - but I'm not actually eating the fruit. I reckoned that I managed to drink 1 1/2 litres water yesterday, which had one small orange and 1 slice grapefruit in the jug for the whole day, so I'm hoping that the benefits outweigh whatever small amount of carb would be infused by the orange / grapefruit combo.

chipping that's difficult... if you live anywhere near me then I'd be happy to meet for coffee and whinge about the lack of low carb food!!!

No cravings after yesterday's blip, I'm not hungry so I'm just going to plough on with low carb! I know week 10 has started but I'm ignoring it for just a tad longer.. I haven't lost weight in what? 3 weeks? Guess I should just be grateful I've not gone up(!)

Will be on week 10 later today!

Daisy that would be nice smile I'm in the South East (of England)...

A few of us had talked about meeting up, but then it went very quiet - maybe I scared them off grin

See you over on the week 10 thread smile
