Well done, BusyWizzy! Congratulations! I wish I could say I'd done the same, but I haven't lost anything again. I went to a do on Saturday and had afternoon tea with my aunt on Sunday, so I suppose I should just be relieved that I didn't put any on. Still 9 st 7lb, therefore, but you give me heart that it's possible to lose weight even after several weeks on a plateau. Good luck to us all!
Oh yes, Heavybee stick with it. I felt for weeks and weeks that I was getting nowhere and then suddenly last week, I just felt really determined. I was careful about what I ate, had slightly smaller portions and generally felt very motivated. Haven't felt like that for a while so it was a good feeling
Well done busywizzy you deserve it. Wish I could say the same but I can't, stayed the same this week. I have decided that I need more incentive to get this 'healthy eating' going again, I've lost and kept off 6 pounds which is good but I need to move it up a notch. I have joined forces with a colleague at work who also needs to lose 2 stone, between us we are going to see who can lose the most weight in 6 weeks, starting this Friday. The loser will have to give the winner a prize (we haven't decided what this is yet, maybe someone could give us a few ideas)! Anyway watch this space. Good luck and well done everyone.
Prize ideas Smalline (not sure how much money is involved so this is a sample of varying costs) - DVD or CD of choice, bottle of your favourite perfume, lunch for you both at a lovely restaurant, massage/facial voucher (Clarins do both and usually have places in John Lewis or House of Fraser), babysitting services for the evening so you and your favourite person can go out celebrating loosing all that weight, a lovely new handbag (most expensive option if that was me), a health spa day (about £90), ummmmmmmmmmmmmm running out of ideas now - anyone else?
Thanks for your ideas busywizzy. We have decided to keep the prize value to £20. I especially like the idea of a pampering treat, so might go for the massage/facial voucher. Have been good so far this week, and would be very happy with 1lb off to take me below 12 stone, not holding my breath though
I have to admit to having had a pretty rubbish week It's been one of those 'pick, pick, pick' weeks where I've just wanted to munch and munch. Nothing very much at a time, a breadstick, a biscuit, another biscuit but added up over the week, it's been loads !!!!
Haven't been able to exercise either as I hurt my knee running a few weeks back and have been advised to rest it until I go for a scan and they can see what damage I've done.
Don't think Tuesday's weigh-in will be bringing me good news.
Oh dear. It's not that I've got on the scales yet, it's just that they'll yell "Gerroff!" when I do. I've been on a rare halfterm holiday to a big wedding and a huge birthday meal, and I haven't cycled anywhere and I've just lazed about. I can hardly bear to weigh in tomorrow. (I did have a lovely time.) I really want to lose half a stone before the summer holiday, though, and I think that's feasible. I love the idea of incentives, I think DH and I will have to put up the prizes for each other. Good luck tomorrow, everyone, we can all get there eventually!
