    Hi RL, I'm sure your parents will understand the changes in the plans.

    I'll do my weigh in tonight or tomorrow and post the results, hopefully good ones this time!!

    Good luck with today x

    Hi RL hope the talk with the parents went ok - well done on your run and hope you enjoy your week off.

    I've had a really bad weekend food wise but excellent one exercise wise - went for a run on Thursday and did the best I've ever done and since then been doing my new pilates DVD every day. Anyone tried pilates before? I love it! Joining a class on Tuesday and ordered myself a mat from Amazon so I can do it at home without sliding all over the place.

    Will weigh in tomorrow but I already know I've gained - extra effort this week as I have my first dress measurements on Friday - eek!

  • hiya, completely forgot to weigh myself this morning so not entirely sure what i am but i have only just come off the time of the month so am heavier.. Last time i weighed in i was 10.6 so no change x
  • mpikey30mpikey30 Posts: 1,149
    Hi ladies - well it's bad news for me, I gained 2lbs image So I'm 10 stone 3lb - bah! But not surprising considering all the pizza, curly fries and chocolate I ate...

    I've drawn a line and had words with myself and hoping for a good result next week.

    Excise wise I can't fault myself - running and pilates going really well and next Monday I start dance classes with a friend.

    Have a good week everyone xx
  • Can i join please???

    Wedding date 27th Feb 2010

    I am currently 10.5lb - doing rosemary conely - have lost 1st13lb - one more pound for two stone! Whoo hoo! However, this last half stone has taken a LONG time! I want to ideally be 9.7 for the wedding - first dress fitting Jan 8th! Argh!!! With Christmas and my bday in the middle its gonna be HARD! nearly a stone to lose! it's not ridiculous and know i need to start up the exercise properley again! Next weigh in will be a week wed - am aiming for -1lb - wish me luck! x

    Hello and welcome can'tbloodywait!

    You and I are in the same boat - I too have lost 1 stone 13lbs and I've been hovering around this for what feels like weeks, maybe months. Each week it seems to be one step forward, one step back and I do really well and then blow it at the weekend so I end up maintaining. This is all well and good but I want to lose another stone!!

    I too am hoping to reach 9 stone 7lbs at Christmas (was hoping to get to 9 stone 3 but I'm being more realistic). Perhaps we can motivate each other?

    Good luck!!!
  • Oooooh - we definately can!

    Ive just done a bit of a plan - and its a tall order! Ive worked out i need to lose 1lb next week (got a bit of a mad week involving going out and food and drink etc) then 2lb a week until the 16th Dec (my birthday is the 15th so planning on losing as much as a i can by then and before the christmas parties etc - planning on maintaining the weight from then on!)

    It's not that unrealistic - as long as i exercise and diet really rigidly - it's only for 7 weeks - its nothing really! I just keep telling myself - 7 weeks of being strict is nothing!

    so - 1lb by next week - wish me luck!

    What's your target?!?!?

    Hi girls, welcome can'tbloodywait! That's fantastic, well done on the weight loss so far!

    well I'm 10st 9, feeling so cross with myself, I should be doing better but seem to be yo-yo'in every week!
  • Hi R-L

    Hope everything is OK.

    I stayed the same last week, but this week I lost a pound and a half! Go me! I am hoping to get down to 16 stone by Christmas, which should be do-able. I was quite surprised at the weight loss this week as my kitchen has been upside down getting itself decorated. I always eat more if I'm thrown out of my routine. I did keep up with my exercise though, and even went to the gym yesterday with H2B.

  • mpikey30mpikey30 Posts: 1,149
    I'm playing my final target by ear because I want to wait and see how I look/feel but I'm going with around the 9stone mark, or 8 stone 13lb because I like the sound of itimage I'm short so this isn't as scary as it might sound.

    I have a bad weekend coming up where there will be a trip to pizza express followed by a halloween party which will involve lots of cakes and drinks. So I'm going to do my very best until then, have that time off and then I can be strict like you until Christmas. Keep telling yourself 'it's only 7 weeks' - I'll be doing the same. No matter how much fun I had at Christmas I'd be gutted if I ended up gaining a load of weight back after all the hard work.

    I've been exercising everyday but I've just reached that stage where that alone is not good enough.

    My Christmas target is now 9 stone 7lbs (or as near to it as possible). I'll join you with the 1lb loss by next Monday if that's ok?

  • Right - 1lb next week - lets go for it - i echo the thought - no matter how much fun i have i'd be gutted to have my current bingo wings on show on my wedding day! My initial target was 8.07 - but have had to modify this over the last year! ill be a comfortable size 12 at 9.07 - think thats the most realistic goal for me!


  • mpikey30mpikey30 Posts: 1,149
    Sounds like you are being very sensible and if you lose more then it's a big bonus!

    Just did a 30 mins pilates workout but still a bit sore from yesterday.

    Tiggys, well done on your loss that's fantastic!

    Welcome to our new ladies x
  • Oooh - thanks RachelLiza and Munchkin and everyone! -I really need the motivation - i'm off work this week and so is H2B - so naturally were both finding loads of excuses to treat ourselves! I need to push myself to exercise everyday - what gets me is it's not exactly complicated - eat less calories than you burn - so why can't i do it - if i push it for 7 weeks - just 7 weeks - i can lose what i wanna lose and i know i'll be soooo much happier! Let's all SAY NO TO BINGO WINGS!!!!!!!
