New thread for those of us who need a little kick every now and again. Remind me of your reasons for doing this again? I need to be a healthy weight for possibly the first time in my adult life.
We all have blips. Days, sometimes even weeks off. And the scales stay the same or even go up. But long term, you should be losing weight and learning new habits to maintain. Think of it like house prices - they fluctuate and go down as well as up (apparently they do go up!). But over a long period of time you're unlikely to regret buying a house.
welcome yoghurt smile you'll find all the support and virtual kicks up the bum you need here.

Is our starting weight our fattest weight before current weight loss or our weight at the point of joining this thread?

BonkeyMollocks Mon 10-Sep-12 18:34:56

Oh Fuck, a friends daughter has just been diagnosed with leukaemia, went into Southampton yesterday and started chemo today. We sat down on the beach the saturday after Expats daughter died, having a bottle of fizz, throwing flowers in the water and praying that none of our children got it.

Off for my first ever zumba class later - absolutely bricking it! Hope I'm not the fat one in the corner without a clue what to do, although to be fair I do have good rhythm and I can follow instructions, so hopefully that's good enough. Won't have time to eat anything before I go though as have to get DCs in bed first, so will be starving when I get home. Wish me luck smile

fivegomadindorset Mon 10-Sep-12 19:00:26

Good luck at zumba, I will be there in spirit.

And the drama continues, we now have first responders and a car ambulance here as one of our guests isn't well.

BonkeyMollocks Mon 10-Sep-12 19:51:27

Do you think we should start a soap? confused

TheOneWithTheHair Mon 10-Sep-12 19:54:00

I still want to know about the prisoners revolt. grin

fivegomadindorset Mon 10-Sep-12 19:56:27

OK, I work for the clinical side of the substance misuse team in a prison, we run iinformation groups for the prisoners who are on prescriptions to help, the other side of our team want to take over these. The prisoners are not happy, they are putting in complaints and one of them is starting a petition.

TheOneWithTheHair Mon 10-Sep-12 20:40:10

Well I hope it's resolved peacefully!! shock

StealthPolarBear Mon 10-Sep-12 20:44:02
