I want to be a size 12 by Chrimbo

And then eventually an 8.

But I need motivating.

I have been farting about on a diet for the last 3 weeks, but I keep cheating. Keep me on the straight and narrow, and in return, I can offer swift kicks up the harris for all of you what need it

Sounds good to me. Keep half attempting WeightWatchers online but making excuses. Would be happy to be a size 14 by Xmas. Presently 16.5 stone so might be being a bit optimistic though!

Will start posting here when I get the urge to pig out in the evening!

HumphreySmallPillow Sat 26-Jul-08 10:21:06

I need to lose a stone.

(And possibly stop eating chocolate as if it were going out of fashion?)

I'm up for a challenge.

This week I will mostly be drinking lots more water.

And attempting to get to sleep before 2am.

<<throws down gauntlet>>

I've been farting about for 6 months lol!

we don't have to do weigh ins do we?! I ain't telling you how heavy grotesque I am!

RBH Sat 26-Jul-08 10:23:48

I am going to try to drink water whenever I get the urge to pick. 'Spect I'll be up half the night weeing!

you could just knock a bit of your weight as long as you are able to keep track of what you are doing.

i.e i am 12 st 7 lb and i want to be 10st.

every week i will say what i have lost till iget down to 10st.

(numbers made up but easy for me to follow)

Can I join in? I am actually <<whispers>> a weight watchers leader, but I need to lose 7lbs or so to get back to goal. I can help with any ww related things.

Hey Sheik Im trying to lose baby weight, currently same size as you with same target! Seeing as we're both in Bath (if I remember correctly) you want to help each other do something about it?

Heaven knows I cant afford the gym etc but would be cool to have a walking/running/moaning companion! grin

SheikYerbouti Sat 26-Jul-08 10:27:23

Ok, lets have a challenge

we can weigh on a Saturday morning and I can do a list thing if you like each week

I am going to do some exercise this afternoon because I am on the piss tonight. What can I drink? I pe=refer pints of lager, but I know this is out sad I don;t like spirits except gin (which gives me an evil hangover)

dillinger Sat 26-Jul-08 10:28:08

If Im completely wrong I apologise for sounding almost like some kind of stalker blush

oi Sat 26-Jul-08 10:28:13

how tall are you? isn't size 8 going to be teeny tiny

HumphreySmallPillow Sat 26-Jul-08 10:28:53

Do you like wine, sheiky?

SheikYerbouti Sat 26-Jul-08 10:29:58

No weigh ins - just tell me your weekly weitght loss (BECAUSE THERE WILL BE NO GAINS - D'YA HEAR?)

oi Sat 26-Jul-08 10:31:18

from distant memories, I think whisky and water is good. Obviously if you neck 10 of them, then not so good smile.

SheikYerbouti Sat 26-Jul-08 10:32:22

I am 5 1

I used to be a size 8

SheikYerbouti Sat 26-Jul-08 10:34:08

I do like wine, but drinkik it too quickly.

I was thinking of white wine and soda

SheikYerbouti Sat 26-Jul-08 10:35:28

I am in Bath dillinger!

However, time is not something I have a lot of especially in the week because I work at odd times of the day, so I am tryting to make my day a bit more active (sitting here MNing isn't helping really)

RBH Sat 26-Jul-08 10:36:05

According to the WW tracker thing all spirits are about the same but lowest seems to be Cinzano (boak!). Low alcohol lager is better than regular but not any good if you want to get drunk!

jofeb04 Sat 26-Jul-08 10:36:16

Please can I join in?

Need to go from a size 20/22 to a size 16. Don't feel like me this size, but can't afford to go to classes etc - prefer to spend money going swimming.

HumphreySmallPillow Sat 26-Jul-08 10:36:21

OK, am going out now.
Have put this thread on watch, and will pop back during the week to chronicle my battle against the cocoa demon.


Good luck everyone! smile

RBH Sat 26-Jul-08 10:37:51

White wine and soda sounds like a very good idea.

I have bought a Pilates dvd so if you all see me on here too much of an evening please tell me to go and exercise!

SheikYerbouti Sat 26-Jul-08 10:39:35

Yes yes ye,a ll welcome


I don;t want hear of any cheating while I'm gone.

It's OK to have the odd slip up though - but you have to ask yourself each time IS IT WORTH IT? WILL MY LIFE BE ANY BETTER BECUSE I HAVE EATEN THAT CAKE. The answer is usally no, isn'yt it?

RBH Sat 26-Jul-08 10:39:45

Bit random but what size is Fizz from Corrie? Reckon she looks pretty good and wouldn't mind being like her but have a horrible feeling she is probably actually something tiny like a size 10.

SheikYerbouti Sat 26-Jul-08 10:40:07

I have a wii fit comning my way soon, so 'm hoping that will do me some good.

SheikYerbouti Sat 26-Jul-08 10:40:34

I'd say 10-12 RBH
