Sorry to be a bit late this morning - no doubt you're all chomping at the bit to declare all on the Spreadsheet of Fabulousness

I'm going to weigh in at lunchtime when I take ds to his class at the leisure centre, I don't have my own scales due to being a bit mental in that dept. confused Well done everyone so far!

1lb down. S preadsheet updated. Was hoping for more, but only weighed for the first time 5 days ago so not bad in 5 days. Probably need to reduce dairy - cheese is so easy to snack on. Not a fan of boiled eggs unfortunately.

Well done everyone on your successful losses!

EwanHoozami Mon 14-Jan-13 09:33:04

some tremendous losses here and on the end of the last thread. Well done everyone, bet you're all glowing and full of energy too. Thanks BIWI and Willie thanks

My excess Christmas 2lb has gone, taking with it another bonus pound. Chuffed!

BigStickBIWI Mon 14-Jan-13 09:36:17

firsttimepig - I went to the spreadsheet to put you on, but you're already there!

HavingAnOffDAy Mon 14-Jan-13 09:38:45

Thanks BIWI I know that's probably the reason so I'm trying to not be disheartened.

I'm also going to record all my food on here so that I have a proper note of it for future analysis should I NOT lose again next week

Breakfast: 2 eggs, scrambled with butter plus 3 slices of Edam & a pint of water

well done everyone on losses!

if you aren't able to weigh in today or would prefer to wait for another day don't worry - i don't fiddle with the spreadsheet to do biggest loser / biggest average loser etc until about friday anyway

Suttyshotty Mon 14-Jan-13 09:43:43

Hooray 3 1/2lb off, I would have preferred to lose more, but I've not perhaps been as good as I could be..... Still, on the right track and feeling much better, I've got more energy and I don't feel sluggish and

kandinskysgirl Mon 14-Jan-13 09:46:09

2lb down for me. I am very pleased as I completely lost it last week after a day of interviewing and got a pizza!

This week my lovely DP has already batch cooked my Low Carb meals for all week so at least I wont have any excuses to cheat.

AuntieMaggie Mon 14-Jan-13 09:47:20

6lb down grin

Really pleased as I had a few slips (please don't beat me BIWI)

ScaredySquirrel Mon 14-Jan-13 09:52:07

My batteries ran out on my scales, so I've put in Saturday's weight instead. 5lb down!

GibbsGirl Mon 14-Jan-13 09:52:37

My DH said to me last night you look really well! Must be all the water I'm drinking that's plumping up my skin grin

FurryDogMother Mon 14-Jan-13 09:54:52

Down 2 lbs to 164 lbs - which is great, considering this is week 22 for me. It might be 3 lbs - the scales are analog, not digital, and I wasn't totally awake - but I'll claim 2, and any 'extra' can go towards next week's report!

Well done everyone - there are some truly brilliant losses this week. Onwards and downwards!

PrincessSparkle86 Mon 14-Jan-13 09:56:00

Morning all

Recorder weight on spreadsheet.. I did rubbish! Proves i need to drink more this week!!

Long walk after the school run this morning to blow away the cobwebs and ive just had breaky : a while 200g of prawns! Yum!
Picked up some reduced stir fry chicken so i shall fru that up with some of my savoy left from yesterday for lunch.

We should be food shopping later so ill see what i can find for tonight!!

Well done to all those who have lost this week x

NoveltySlippers Mon 14-Jan-13 09:58:25

Good morning all. Congrats on all the losses!

I was actually headed for a whopping 6lb loss this week (probably because I'm new to low carbing).

Then I went on my binge at the weekend and piled on four pounds promptly. So, my final loss is 2lb. As you can imagine, am kicking myself smile

OTTMummA Mon 14-Jan-13 10:00:04

12.2lbs down smile I am chuffed, I gained 1lb on Saturday morning and was quite disappointed, think I need to up my water intake. I still want chocolate tbh, ibam resisting, but think it is an emotional want, difficult to stop thinking about it really which is pathetic.

GuyMartinsSideburns Mon 14-Jan-13 10:01:05

3lb down (Ive recorded on spreadsheet) and bang on 9st smile

Prob couldve been a little more had I been super strict Miss Strict, however I had a glass of red yesterday (I didnt open a new bottle - was a glass left over from before) whilst waiting for my dinner (which I had a smidge of gravy with... I cant have a roast dinner without any gravy at all so Im not even going there grin ). I drank it in front of the fire and it was bliss.

Today I didnt want breakfast but I'll have something shortly. Not sure about lunch yet either but dinner is leftover roast pork with mash and something (I'll have celeriac with mine.)

Have a good day everyone, and well done on all the losses! Keep going!

WillieWaggledagger Mon 14-Jan-13 10:03:49

OTT well done on resisting - and you're right about the emotional want. most of us who've given in at some point have found that actually it's nowhere near as good as we remember!

NoveltySlippers Mon 14-Jan-13 10:06:20

OTTMummA - wow, that's impressive!!

carbalanche Mon 14-Jan-13 10:07:42

1st week and 8 pounds off - gone from 13st 9 to 13st 1, that's down from 191 to 183 pounds.

Pleased smile

My only minor cheat was 3 small pieces of salmon maki at a sushi bar which contained about 6 teaspoons of sushi rice.

MsRinky Mon 14-Jan-13 10:12:27

4.1lbs off for me, so lighter now than I was before my rather extended and carb heavy Christmas period. Very happy with that.

Although obviously there was no official weigh-in before 7th Jan, I did weigh myself on 1st January, and was horrified to see that 11 days of feasting and drinking had resulted in a gain of 12lbs. I tell you this as an example of a) how much it is possible to gain back quickly if you go off plan, and b) that if you do go off plan, get back on it and you should hopefully be able to lose the gain (nearly) as quickly as it went on.

It's my 40th birthday this week, and I do have a planned cheat on the cards for that evening. However, in every year previous to this one, I have used my birthday as an excuse to not even start the diet until after it's been and gone, oh, and then it's Mr Rinky's birthday, oh, and then our wedding anniversary at the beginning of March, and oh, it's practically Easter, etc, etc.

BigStickBIWI Mon 14-Jan-13 10:13:49

I don't know who was asking, but I've posted a recipe for beef casserole on the recipe thread

I've also posted a lovely recipe for mushroom pate, which is really low carb.

prettybird Mon 14-Jan-13 10:23:55

Despite having somehow put on a pound between yesterday and today, I'm being honest and putting down my weight today - which is still a 7lb loss! smile Woo hoo - 3.8% down, to 12st 9lb.

Have noticed I'm not snacking as much on allowed foods of course - I think that's a combination of the diet working and also just generally getting my act together better and doing stuff rather than prowling the kitchen looking for food wink.

Have done Level 2 of Ripped in 30 today too!

HumphreyCobbler Mon 14-Jan-13 10:24:50

hello everyone

I am still at it, but I don't weigh so all I can report is that things are going well and I have definitely lost the weight I gained at Christmas. Hope everyone has a good week.

EwanHoozami Mon 14-Jan-13 10:29:31

DH away this week so am summoning the impetus to make tasty low-carb meals just for me. I find it quite hard. Off to Lidl for pork chops and the like.

B: Lidl yog
L: lots of egg whites to use after Hollandaise-fest so a buttery egg-white spinach omelette
D: A 'whatever is still looking decent in the fridge' salad.

BigStickBIWI Mon 14-Jan-13 10:31:20

Wow! There are some spectacular losses - letsgocamping has lost a stone!!!

Can't understand why he/she isn't here shouting from the rooftops about it! grin
