Hi all. I've lost half a lb this week, but disappointing but hey, it's a loss. Too many visits to the cafe I think!

Having 2 weeks with no weigh in now, will be trying to be good in between events!

We have a new leader who will be the leader until a permanent one can be found. Not sure what happened to the other leader. Seems like she wasn't very popular as she was saying whether people had lost or gained, and people didn't like it. Maybe the takings went down or maybe she decided it wasn't for her. Who knows?

New leader says I need to think about a target. Was thinking of setting an interim target which gets me to a normal bmi of 25 for now. It's only 8.5 pounds away. I really don't know how to decide how to set an end goal! I kind of want to see how far I can get in a way. How did you guys decide what your target should be?

ALemonyPea Wed 21-Dec-16 06:06:43

My target has changed three or four times, and still undecided. Set one and see how you feel when you get there, you can always change it.

FaithFromTheRealmsOfGlory Wed 21-Dec-16 07:51:34

Morning all!

Owlina maybe you need to see how you feel when you get there? I imagine when I get to a BMI of 25 I'll still be curvy but slim which is all I want. But see how you feel when you get there. You may want to lose a bit more, you may be happy.

WI for me tonight. So hoping I get my club 10! (2lb to lose) I could have derailed last night, really wanted pizza! Found some bolognese in the freezer instead. I've been very active so I just hope it's enough.

WhoKn0wsWhereTheMistletoes Wed 21-Dec-16 07:55:52

Marking spot, thanks Lemony. I took an educated guess for my target weight, I've been overweight for so long I've no idea what ideal would be for me. Getting comfortably into size 12 clothes is what I'm aiming for.

OwlinaTree Wed 21-Dec-16 08:14:33

Ok thanks, I'll get to the normal bmi and then make a decision.

alibongo5 Wed 21-Dec-16 08:56:09

Well, pickle my walnuts as dear old Len would say - I lost 2 1/2 lb. I'm not quite sure how - maybe I should have a Chinese takeaway every week!! I think the thing I find with SW is that even if I go wrong somewhere, I try to keep on track with other meals/snacks etc. Anyway, well chuffed with that! Next planning to WI on NYE. And that will set me up for going for it big time in 2017.

Thanks for the new thread Lemony

This week has been tough, due on any minute and I could really eat EVERYTHING...and then to top it all off what I believe to be a bartholin cyst has erupted over the last 24 hours so it feels like someone is punching me in the foof every time I move. Am off to the doctors before work to see what they can do because this is Not Pleasant.

FaithFromTheRealmsOfGlory Wed 21-Dec-16 09:34:47

Brilliant end to the year Alibongo!

Hope you feel better soon em.

Buttwing Wed 21-Dec-16 11:26:50

Oops I just posted a big long one on the other thread, it basically said well done PA, I didn't go to group, and I feel Christmassy!

Buttwing Wed 21-Dec-16 11:27:15

Well done Ali that's brilliantsmile

Buttwing Wed 21-Dec-16 11:28:27

Em i believe they are so painfulsad hope they can do something.

emwithme Wed 21-Dec-16 14:37:59

Doc has confirmed it's a bartholin cyst. Is very painful. I have two different antibiotics and so can't drink at the work do tomorrow night (meh) or over Christmas (aaaaaaaaargh but I've already bought my bottle of expensive champagne). Oh well, I shall think of the syns I am saving to eat in the form of cheese

Today's food:

B: Eggy muffins
L: Leftover chili con carne (no rice); apple, pear, satsuma
D: Bolognaise sauce on roasted mushrooms
HEA: Milk
HEB: Hifi bars

WI (and taster) tomorrow morning so am being "good" today and then from tomorrow all bets are off!

Oh. Great. Literally just got a text from DH. He's puking. YAY. Plus, I came on (a few days early) a couple of hours ago.

Can I cancel Christmas?

ALemonyPea Wed 21-Dec-16 16:00:57

Oh Em, poor you 😞People are going to think you're pregnant though, not drinking over Christmas and claiming to be on ABs.

Today started so well...then fell head first onto a Costco mince tart and it's been downhill from there 😳

Not trying to be 100% good, so it shouldn't be too bad. The Christmas cake my dads partner made isn't very nice, such a disappointment.

WhoKn0wsWhereTheMistletoes Wed 21-Dec-16 16:24:07

Ouch Em, hope the ABs kick in fast.

Well, WI tomorrow morning. Did a preliminary one this morning (I weigh in at home so same scales, time of day etc) and I was a pound down. However I was 1.5lb up last week so I'd really like that 0.5lb to vanish by tomorrow <munches celery>.

LavenderRains Wed 21-Dec-16 18:39:05

Well done for all the losses!
Had weigh in this morning. I maintained, which is very disappointing considering I've not realy been off plan. I've been out for a couple of meals but had jacket potatoes and only one pud (tiny bit of cheesecake) & about 9-10 syns.
Was hoping to lose a little bit today as I'm not going now until 4th Jan. Feel like stuffing chocolate nowhmm

OwlinaTree Wed 21-Dec-16 19:44:48

Oh no lavender, how disappointing. I was hoping for more this week too.

Oh well, delicious Christmas foods on the horizon!

Had horrendous busy day today, ended up eating lunch about 4. Dh working late so just put the toddler to bed, attempting to get the baby to sleep. Yummy chicken saag from Iceland for tea!

Stuck to plan today....

FaithFromTheRealmsOfGlory Wed 21-Dec-16 20:00:50

I got my Club10!!!! 2lb off this week. I'm delighted! fgrin

OwlinaTree Wed 21-Dec-16 20:23:45

Well done faith!

Groovester Wed 21-Dec-16 20:29:02

Well done Faith

LavenderRains Wed 21-Dec-16 22:40:05

Well done faith star
I had a measure up as I was feeling a bit fed up with maintaining. Since starting sw I've lost. .......^drum roll please^....
3 inches off each thigh
2 inches off hips
3 inches off waist

No wonder my trousers fall down! Feeling more positive now.stuck to plan in the end
B eggs on toast
D yogurt, banana, satsumas
T chicken stir fry
melon, 2x hifi bars

OwlinaTree Wed 21-Dec-16 22:56:11

Wow that's great lavender. I didn't measure myself before I started, but I'm back wearing jeans I couldn't fit into even a month ago. Will you be treating yourself to some new gear or are you going to wait a bit?

LavenderRains Wed 21-Dec-16 23:14:07

I've bought a new coat as I needed one. It's an 18 instead of 22.
Not bought anything else as I've found clothes in my wardrobe that now fit! I would ideally like to lose another one and a half stone but may need new trousers before then!
