Only one pound but I'm happy as it is staying off and i have definitely relaxes the diet a bit. Good luck to everyone else x


AnninGlos Report 21 Nov 2012 15:24

I would say 3 lbs was fine Susan, if you lose too much too quickly it will all go back on again.

Lol Ann

there was actually veg in it too and I added cabbage.

I have only lost another 3 lbs....... :-( lots of reasons......I think I will go back to eating raw veg and fruit for a couple of days a week......


Cooper Report 21 Nov 2012 14:56

Hi Ladies,

Hope all is well, I lost 2lbs this week :-D, I will keep up the good work, only five weeks until the Christmas festivities start. A pound a week will result in half stone loss and that's not so hard to do :-D



AnninGlos Report 14 Nov 2012 09:32

Are you still doing the 2 days of 500 calories? I can't stick to that regularly, find it too hard. susan, soup sounded very nice. 5 beans!!!! can see why you'd lose weight eating that :-D

Wendy, no problem!

You have to do a LOT of exercise and a LOT more than once a week for the muscle to build sufficiently to start burning the fat. But also you have to start somewhere so once a week plus walking on some of the other days should help

Come on Teresa, think of buying yourself something new, not necessarily clothes, with the money you will save once you have lost the weight and don't need to pay the diet club each week. There's still time to make a difference before Christmas. Still time for you too BC :-D then you won't want to put it all back on again.

Susan the soup sounds good. Yesterday I made a all in one pot chicken casserole loads of veg but no potatoes. Made enough for two days with one chicken breast.

Ann I owe you an e-mail. I'll do it today :-)

Keep going girls
Wendy x

Did you know.....A tin of spring vegetable soup has only 85 calories and lots of goodness.

Today I cooked a pack of Tesco's 5 bean soup mix. I added some garlic and a knorr vegetable stock thingy.....It was soooo tasty.

cake is out for a while..... :-( until I lose a few more pounds.


AnninGlos Report 13 Nov 2012 17:29

Teresa, hello, yes all well with me thanks.

Actually you do put on muscle with aerobics and muscle does weigh heavy. Have you measured yourself, waist etc, that is more of a guide than weight. :-)


Cooper Report 13 Nov 2012 16:59

:-D :-D :-D



ButtercupFields Report 13 Nov 2012 16:39

Don't fret, Teresa, that weight is probably all muscle from the aerobics :-D


Cooper Report 13 Nov 2012 16:33

Oh dear BC, I'm back to what I was when I started In July. I keep loosing and gaining the same 5lbs and have done all year. What a waste of money :-| well not so much of a waste as we get a 45 minute aerobic class as well. I could kick myself because I have only got one stone to loose, well maybe one and a half but at my age it does start to show on your face if you loose too much off your face. I have a big birthday next year, ending with an 0. I can't keep blaming all the baby weight. My youngest is 14 now.

So I am taking the bull by the horns and going cold turkey on chocolate and only having cake as a treat, not every day ;-)

Hallo Ann, hope all is well :-D



AnninGlos Report 13 Nov 2012 15:54

Erm! I don't think that is the idea BC :-D


ButtercupFields Report 13 Nov 2012 15:09

Hope you did well last night Teresa and well done to Susanwiv and Wendy and all who are trying. Keep up the good work, I may be joining very soon just so I can gorge at Christmas :-D <3


AnninGlos Report 13 Nov 2012 12:41

Glad you are feeling better Wendy.

Well done Susan that is a good result, don't turn sideways people won't be able to see you :-D


Cooper Report 12 Nov 2012 18:06

Thanks Wendy, I'm off to weigh in and do the aerobics class which goes with it tonight. I fear I may be back to square one but I have a friend going as well so we can keep each other on the straight and narrow. I'm glad you are feeling a bit better today :-D

Wow Susan, well done loosing three dress sizes. You must be really chuffed :-D

Will drop in tomorrow with the good or not so good news

Hi Teresa and Susan thanks for your good wishes. I feel much better today more like me instead of someone living in a fog.

Good for you Susan on buying the leggings I know just how you feel. It certainly keeps you going when you buy something new, tight fitting and best of all in a smaller size :-D

My aim is to keep off what I have lost and to still keep losing at a steady pace. Stick with it Teresa we can do this. I hope your daughter is enjoying her new job. The shop in the converted chapel sounds lovely and just the sort of place that I would like. Living here I miss the atmosphere you get in the UK when Christmas shopping. Christmas isn't really celebrated here but the 6th January 'Kings Day' is when the Spanish give their presents.

Enjoy the gym and hope you soon start losing the weight again.



Susan10146857 Report 12 Nov 2012 00:25

Sorry to hear you are not well Wendy :-(

I am really chuffed this week......I actually bought some jeggings and they look good on me.......I have dropped 3 dress sizes and am feeling great about it. Thanks to Wendy for giving me a push to do something about my increasing waistline. :-D
