Zalen, glad you're back and only a smidgen over 12 smile. That's brilliant.

I've been all over the place, good days, bad days. I haven't been updating my fitness pal. I have been very negative about myself and worried about putting all the weight back on but when I weighed myself - for the first time in two weeks - I have lost about 0.8lbs which I am very pleased with. I eat well but have had lots of snacks recently and I focus on how naughty I've been, get depressed, and then have 1 or 2 pieces of toast to compensate. Then I get depressed about that although it's hardly anything really.

So I am 133.8 which is just over 9 1/2 stones. I still want to go into the 8s because my stomach is larger than I'd like. If I get time I might start weighing myself daily. The main thing is I need to be positive.

Arty, good luck this afternoon. Did you manage control on Friday? I hope you had a good time either way.

I made it!! 11st 13.8 this morning, that's 3 stone off since November 15th, about 5 & 1/2 months shock

New target, into the 10's before the big family holiday at the end of August, that's 4 months, maybe I should make that into the 9's wink. Let's not push it though, I haven't been under 10 since I was a teenager blush

Yay! That's brilliant news. It wouldn't surprise me if you get to 9 st 7 by then and I'm still here! It has taken me 19 months to lose 4 1/2 stone. Actually it took me about 12 months and I've yoyoed ever since.

I had a very good day yesterday. Tuna salad and cottage pie for meals with only 3 biscuits so the best I've done in a long time. Meeting a friend in london for lunch so it might be hard to make a sensible choice. Tea will either be another tuna salad, using yesterdays ingredients or perhaps a tuna and mushroom omelette.

Another good day yesterday. Chicken soup and bread at lunchtime. Grapes for a snack and then dinner was a tuna salad and omelette.

To my delight I was 3lbs down today since Monday! It won't necessarily last as I'll struggle at the weekend but it is a big boost. I am currently making dd2s pasta lunch while nibbling on a carrot so feeling very virtuous.

Well I'm down another pound to 10st 3, as usual slow progress but going the right direction !
Hope everyone has a good bank holiday weekend

Well done cookie. Every loss is a good one. I remember you have a graduation or wedding coming up. Have you bought a nice new dress?

I am curretly in soft play with dd2. The food is so horrible. I had a tuna jacket potato which seemed about the healthiest option but dd2 wanted a pizza and chips so it will take all my willpower not to pick at them.

Hello all.

A great week, I am finally back in the zone although not sure how long it will last

Down 3.5 lbs. think it might be my best week since I started the diet September 2012.

Hope the rest of you are all well and enjoying the bank holiday. It's lovely weather down here so we'll be running around outside somewhere.

Well done Johnny that is great news. I can't have my weigh in at the Drs this week as its a bank holiday so will have to wait until next Monday. I did try on my dodgy scales and they are showing a slight loss of 1lb but I am not sure how accurate that is. I will take it though as I need a bit of an boost! Here's hoping to a good healthy food week. Chicken tangle pie with lots of veg for tea tonight.

Good luck everyone

Zalen Tue 06-May-14 10:49:44

Unfortunately I'm back up into the 12's after a nightmare weekend of on-call for work. Hopefully now that's over I can get back to the 11's and stay there. Congrats to all losers this week smile

JohnnyDeppsfuturewife Tue 06-May-14 11:31:26

The zone lasted until the end of that last message!

Yesterday I ate - among other things - 4 chocolate brioche, pizza, chips, chocolate crispie cake!

Just doing an online food order so I can get back on track.

Arty, dodgy scales don't sound dodgy to me. That's a great result.

Zalen, that's a shame, but I have every confidence you'll be in the 9s or 10s by your holiday.

JohnnyDeppsfuturewife Mon 12-May-14 13:01:51

Hello all

Well I was quite good but the weekend was a bit carby so I put on a lb. Not too happy as I was down 1lb on saturday so I've put on 2 in 2 days.

Sigh, after last week I was thinking I'd soon be at my target but I think I'll still be here at xmas.

artyanklet Mon 12-May-14 14:47:46

I have been for my weigh in - I am pleased to say I have lost 1.2 kg, mind that is over 2 weeks but I don't mind its a loss and I am happy.

Johnny - sorry to hear about your lb? Maybe you will lose it next week - fingers crossed.

Hope everyone else is having a good weigh in.

JohnnyDeppsfuturewife Tue 13-May-14 09:13:55

Well done arty. 1lb a week is very good. I know it may seem slow but I had weeks and weeks of 1lb losses (and often less) but in 6 months time you'll be so pleased that you kept it up.

And next time I moan give me a slap. I stepped on the scales today and was back down to 130.1lbs so the same as last week. I really have nothing to complain about.
