I will I will! As of end last week, was 10stone11lbs - heaviest ever (not-pregnant) weight.

Can I join pleeeeeeaese?

MascaraOHara · 13/09/2005 15:57

Of course - everyone is welcome.

Am going to have no choclate this week, have a wedding and christening this weekend so will try to not gorge on lovely food!

I'm with you MOH! Not sure how but will cut some crap out and drink less so a pound a week sounds good.

Distel · 13/09/2005 16:00

I will, but I will have to buy some scales first, Wouldn't like to guess what I weigh. I know I am 85 kilos but live in ignorant bliss that I don't know what this is in pounds and ounzes and have no intentions of finding out.

Count me in.

MascaraOHara · 13/09/2005 16:01


lets update with our weight every Tuesday. I think if we just try and be 'good' we should be able to shake off 1lb per week.

Next week I will try to do some exercise also

Oh go on then - I don't measure in st looks too scary - but I'm 129lb so - I should be under 120lb by then - my target!!!

spikeycat · 13/09/2005 16:10

Count me in, and 10st 7.5lns and my scales are the clever ones that tell me I am obese - thanks!

Luckie · 13/09/2005 16:40

Count me in!! I can't seem to control my eating at the moment and my nose is getting very long from all the lies I keep telling about what I've had.
I need to shed at least a stone !!

motherpeculiar · 13/09/2005 16:45

I'm in - not sure how much i weigh but somewhere between 10.5 and 11 stone. deffo prefer to be between 9.5 and 10. still bf'ing but if i take it slow between now and xmas (XMAS ) should be fine

good idea

logic · 13/09/2005 16:52

Count me in. I'm stopping bfing this week and I'm currently 9st. I want to get down to 8st ideally. I find that if I roughly count calories and try to stick to about 1500 a day then the weight comes off and I loathe complicated counting and fad diets. I used to do WW but I really can't be bothered to go there every week.

LilMissHappy · 13/09/2005 16:55

I would like to join you. I used to be a slim 8 1/2 stone and am now 10lbs 5. Never had a problem staying slim before and it's making me miserable.

Am actually going to aim to lose about 2lbs a week though.

MascaraOHara · 13/09/2005 17:07

Wow, glad to see I'm not alone! Am hoping we can all keep each other motivated.

I think I will try and have breakfast tomorrow I normally skip it and will try and bring some food to snack on to work so that I don't go to the vending machine

I'm 11 and half stone and only 5ft 2"!!!!

nutcracker · 13/09/2005 17:17

Erm i think i'm in too if thats ok. Will post my weight later cos I haven't a clue what I weigh at the mo.

dinosaur · 13/09/2005 17:27

Mascara - breakfast at home is definitely a good idea - I've had a bowl of Bran Flakes with semi-skimmed milk yesterday and today, thus avoiding the need to buy a croissant from Pret on the way in to work! And I haven't snacked during teh mornings either.

I'm stealing an idea from a poster on another thread which is not to have any carbs after 7 p.m. (on weeknights anyway, going to give myself a bit more leeway at weekends).

Distel · 13/09/2005 17:33

You all sound very slim compared to me. I f I could loose more than a pound a week that would be great. I am going to exercize more and eat earlier in the evening (about 8 o clock at the mo).

I am 85 kilos and only 5ft2 {shame on me emoticon}

ja9 · 13/09/2005 19:07

I'm in!!! Currently 10 st 8lb ( was 11st 3 weeks ago! ). Target weight 9st 7lb. So Tuesday is weigh in day? I really hope i can keep it up. I have a big incentive for mid Oct - a school reunion thing (was almost 2st lighter last time they saw me!! plus really want to get into a particular dress!) and hopefully by then i'll be so encouraged that i'll keep going! won't i....

Steppy1 · 13/09/2005 19:17

..too embarrased to tell you what my weight is, needless to say need to lost lots.....happy to update on weight loss each week though...DH and I are trying to do slimfast. I've lost a pund...he's lost 7 (bastard !!) Apologise in advance for awearing ladies...

Steppy1 · 13/09/2005 19:18

...woops meant a pound not pund (blush)

logic · 13/09/2005 19:39

Steppy, it's not fair is it? Whenever dh joins me in losing weight, he always loses it more quickly too.

Oh dinosaur, I've got a packet of chocolate croissants in the bread bin. You've reminded me!

Just weighed myself and am disappointed to say the least!!
11st 7lb (am normally 10st 7ish and even that is too much) so really must lose a stone. I can't keep blaming it on the baby (nearly 8months old).
Good luck all!!!!!

I don't know, luckie, it took me at least 9 months to lose the baby weight from my first child. I put on 3.5 stone during that pregnancy! Managed to keep to the standard 28lbs this time, hence it has already gone but I'm short and pear-shaped so any extra lbs really show...

Luckie · 14/09/2005 08:25

Thanks logic .
But I don't think the chocolate and cakes have been helping !
My DH often joins me in trying to lose weight but he too loses it really quickly (aaarrrggghh!!)

MascaraOHara · 14/09/2005 08:36

Wow, lots of interest!

This morning I had 40g of Fruit n Fibre with skimmed milk. It was weird as I normally don't have breakfast and wasn't hungry at all but I ate anyway.

Last night for tea I made cottage pie but only with a small amount of mince - mostly it was onions, mushrooms, peas and carrots. I did have cheese on the top though but I also ate a smaller portion than usual.
