well done on making it to the final week! pop your weight in on the spreadsheet and give yourself a pat on the back!

although the formal bootcamp ends this week, we always have an ongoing chat thread for support, advice and general chitchat, so we won't be going away. you will see on the spreadsheet that you can carry on weighing in weekly if you want to, but i won't be doing the biggest loser stuff until the next bootcamp

Mouse I know you'll be very very welcome, but we're over HERE now on the ongoing chat thread. Come join us there and meet the fabulous BIWI who keeps us all in check with her big stick. ;-)

PS - I'm going to bed now so will see if I've got a gym pass in the morning.

Night all smile xxx

Evening, tis me, Mouse

Can I please join? smile

<waves to Koti smile >

I need to keep a bit of a check on the carbs as once this summer ends, I will climb back into loaves of bread, by the dozen, baker's of course, but really.

So, I'd like to have some fail safe back up in place now, before it's too late and I get a stone heavier.

Is that okay?

Thank you in advance. xxx

I haven't weighed myself because I've had a s**t week, eating all kinds of c**p. I don't know what to do to stop myself eating chocolate. I know it's bad for me, I get myself temporarily back on track and then after a week or so I just seem to "forget" why I was eating low carb. It doesn't seem important anymore and for whatever reason - stress, hormones, boredom - I start eating c**p again. I am the most pathetic, stupid person ever that I can't get to grips with this and I hate being addicted to sugar in this way. I've tried getting rid of all the crap but then my dh buys more, thinking he's doing me a favour. Or I buy some. I'm not blaming my dh, it's not his fault, he does it for me. It wouldn't help if I told him not to, because if I then changed my mind and asked him to buy chocolate, he would.

FInal weigh in sees me at down 5 this week, so the 4 I put on last week and another one off. So I think that's 12.5lbs over 8 weeks smile
Thanks BIWI and Willie and all others who've given so much support.

New, ongoing chat thread is here

Never too old, letssee! I wore mine last summer for the first time in over a decade - and I'm 53!

Am very happy bunny tonight. I can't remember the last time I was under 11 stone. Thank you very much, especially BIWI and Willie - I don't think I would have managed without everyone's input into these threads and the focus that the 10-week challenge gave me.

Some more to go, but it seems do-able, even if I did give in to a cake today. Thing was, after the first two bites I didn't really enjoy it.

The dc are not so happy. I threatened to wear a skimpy bikini on holiday to celebrate (am much too old for that, really) and their faces . . . grin

Went out for dinner with the family to celebrate our ds2's marathon swim of 800m and had gammon with 2 fried eggs and salad. I turned down the chips and peas! smilesmilesmilesmile

Sparkling water to drink.

How nice that this WOE means I could have strawberries and cream while watching Wimbledon on the telly. (And watching Andy Murray win yay!)

So massive thanks BIWI and Wille, without this low-carb bootcamp I would not have lost noticeable amounts of weight, found my waistline again, gained the confidence of feeling slimmer.... yada yada yada

Just wanted to say thank you!

Still long way to go but I'm on the right track.

BerylStreep Sun 07-Jul-13 16:52:02

Hi BIWI welcome back. Willie has been doing a great job in your absence.

Ruprekt Sun 07-Jul-13 14:23:10

smile Thanks girls!

Just had coarse duck pate with sauteed spinach and an avocado.

Hi BIWI - welcome back!

now everyone, get this. I've just made chocolate ice cream as decided I was going to have a treat day. I LOVE ice cream from our ice cream maker. Made it, froze it, tasted it and thought 'Meh!'!!!!! so didn't have any. Really shocked with myself and pleased my taste has changed so much. Had some sliced edam cheese and salami instead which was yum.

MrsHerculePoirot Sun 07-Jul-13 13:57:11

Well done Rup for your reserve!

I on the other had was good all day, then drank cider, then ate some cake! Had a good time though and back on the water with a vengence (which I clearly can't spell) today... thought about just having something not lc for breakfast, but didn't and now feel much better for it!

Now that the weather is getting hotter, just wanted to share that we make our own ice lollies - diet lemonade is nice, or mixed with a bit of (sugar free) blackcurrant squash. Obviously not bootcamp proper, but nice as a cooling treat on a hot day when everyone else has something from the freezer!

Hi Cider - have a fabulous time!

I'm having a carby but primal day today as I don't often cheat but have really been wanting a treat this week and have been slipping. I've just had almond waffles for breakfast with yogurt and honey and I'm going to make some icecream later (using Lindt salted caramel chocolate).

Tomorrow I'm starting strict Bootcamp again so will see you all on the chat threads no doubt

I'm definitely sticking to a paleo/ primal lifestyle when I get my weight down. Such a clean, healthy way to eat (I feel)

CiderwithBuda Sun 07-Jul-13 04:29:39

Quick hello from Death Valley! Hotter than a hot, hot,hot thing!

I didn't manage to check in before we left but wanted to say hi and bye for now. Thanks so much to BIWI and Willie. And to the rest if you! Given how horribly bloated I am feeling I willbe boot camping again as soon as holidays are done!

And BIWI I did W4R1 at 6am the day we flew!

NewStartNewStory Sun 07-Jul-13 01:30:55

Oh thank fuck for that Biwi is back with her stick!

BIWI Sat 06-Jul-13 23:50:43


So, I can see things will have to change around here ...

MrsHerculePoirot Sat 06-Jul-13 23:42:43

Thank goodness you're back - I've just drunk a load of cider then despite being good food wise until very late in the evening are cake!!!!!! Oooops

BIWI Sat 06-Jul-13 23:35:09

Right chaps. I'm back now. <swishes big stick around>

How are we all doing?

Negroni Sat 06-Jul-13 22:19:08

Just had major chips and alcohol fail! I should know that tipsyness leads to terrible food choices. Oh dear. Back on the wagon tomorrow!
