Hello quiche avoiders wink

Lovely shiny new thread- we are a talkative bunch!

First Thread

Second Thread

To be a quiche avoider you must
-have a considerable amount of weight to lose
-be serious about wanting to lose it
-give other members a virtual kick up the arse when needed
-weigh in with us on a Wednesday (or if you weigh in on another day, post your results on a wednesday)

So roll up, jump in and lets lose lbs! and if you are having a moment of weakness just remember... what would clarinet do wink

Welcome all the new posters and welcome back to some old friendsgrin

I am currently 14 stone and a few pounds and I would like to get down to around 11. I have never been under 11 since having DD1 17 years ago. I lost 1 and a half stone last year and just over a stone the year before. I do things slow and steady and do tend to go backwards several times a year.

I am doing Simple Start on Weight Watchers. It is basically a stricter filling and healthy and very similar to Slimming World. I am liking it this week as it is giving me structure and telling me what I can and can't eat. I know a lot of you don't like that and at times last year I would crave things which were 'naughty' or 'banned'

Well managed the last 3 days under 1200 calories and feel head back in the game! :-) Also did a 10k run yesterday so its all going in the right direction. Training for half marathon in March so have a 12k planned for sunday. So close to getting back into my 'nice' clothes, all of which I have held onto since before ds1 was born!

Sleeping - any activity is good!!

The first few days of any diet/lifestyle change are always the hardest but each day you stick with it the easier it will get.

<sneaks back in> sorry I have been AWOL blush sad well done to those who have stuck around and kept going over the festive period...I just used it as an excuse to eat anything and everything it would seem!

Great to see so many new people join and also those like me who have gone astray coming back again!

will post more tomorrow but wanted to get this thread back on 'threads I'm on' or else I'm worried it will disappear and I won't try to find it again - must try and get some bloody willpower...

Do you think a 10k run this morning makes up for 3 profiteroles after a healthy seafood lunch? Opps!

How did it go sleeping?

Welcome back lottie.

More than makes up for it GoodLady! I went to greggs at lunch sad and no run either to burn it off just cheese and crackers when I got home instead

As we are up to 982 I will set up the new thread to take us into the new week!
