New thread!

Well it looks like I'm 3lb up on pre holiday weight so that's pretty good. I've been on damage control the last few days so will do my best to keep focused (pesky Oreo thins getting in the way!)

Here's to a lighter September for us all!

400g down this week smile I'm happy with that! That's 1.4kg off since my first weigh-in of the month, and 2.5kg since my last weigh-in of last month. I think for the purposes of Slenderista of the Month challenge I should take it from first weigh-in to last so I'm always (except one month of the year) doing the difference between four weigh-ins; does that make sense?

Or should it account for the whole month, i.e. take it from the last weigh-in of August to the last weigh-in of September rather than including the first 6 days in Sep as 'last month'?

Nice one Quim so satisfying when you lose some isn’t it. When do you all do your weigh ins?

Bloodycats Fri 27-Sep-19 15:56:35

Ps I’d be interested to hear about the 2:2:3 plan. You could inbox me if everyone is tired of hearing about it grin

My new Fitbit came today -yay! Went for a run to celebrate.

Quim it's very hard to work out the best way for slimmer of the month. I'm tempted to say the lowest weigh in in the first week and lowest in the last week so it doesn't matter what day people weigh but I'm not sure that's quite right!

Oh Red I'm not worried about it being fair or anything, just being a mathematical dunce! I feel like if I always weigh from the first Friday to the last, then will whatever loss I incur between the last Friday of each month and the first Friday of the next never be "clocked"? Not that it matters hugely grin

YAY for the Fitbit! Does that mean we'll see your wee face on the challenges again?

RedLipsAndRosyCheeks Sat 28-Sep-19 11:05:17

Quim yep I'm back in the challenges! Smashing it today so far with Zumba and the run to and from.

I think if you weigh in weekly then the difference between the last four weigh ins sounds right? I'm not get with numbers either though!

Just popping back in because I fell off the thread sad

Not much to report. I'm definitely not slimmer of the month. I haven't been particularly golden for a while but I've been doing lots of running.

I have been around 11.2 for a couple of weeks now so 2lb down from the start of the month. I'd be happy to end the month there.

Hope you are all having a good weekend.

Kick 2lb off over the month is good going.

I am 12 7.5 this morning so that's 3.5 off this month which I'm over the moon about tbh!

Morning all.

Not been too bad since Thursday. Doing 16-8. Still had wine and crisps though! But. Am down 2.2 pounds. Happy with that!

It’s not a loss for the month as I gained over the month. But it’s going in the right direction.

Was planning on starting the Fast 800 today but I have a chest infection thingie which started on Friday. Coughing like a 40 a day smoker. Feel bleurgh. And all I want is toast and honey......... Have come back to bed with a cuppa instead.

Well done on the losses everyone! Kick I think that's great progress, especially if you haven't been the goldenest food-wise! The running really seems to cover a multitude of sins, it must feel pretty good to know you can let your hair down a bit and still lose or at least not gain.

Peri it is impossible not to eat comfort food when you feel vile, I've been doing it all weekend. Thankfully feeling better now but so hungry today, so I'm paying the price...

RedLips that's wonderful progress for the month, well done smile Will you be starting the new thread tomorrow?

Wonder how @poorpaws is feeing? Come and tell us you're still alive!

In was 85kg on the last day of April after I gave birth to my second child.
I'm now 67kg and I'm absolutely going to be 64kg by 1st December! Another month! Feels a long time but it will be worth it!
