Well done Ann. I forgot to check in last week but I lost 2lbs and was a very happy bunny. This week I lost one pound, I am now only about 4lbs from my target but I may lower it in the new year as I still have clothes that I like and can't get into comfortably.

Hope everyone else is doing well


AnnCardiff Report 29 Nov 2013 17:52

well I lost another 1lb on Wednesday and am now two and a half pounds under my target weight - will have to be careful - you only have to go three pounds either way or you have to start paying again :-(

Reaching your target before Christmas will be brilliant. I've lowered mine a bit and now need to lose another half a stone. Good luck Lynda.

Hello ladies and gentleman :-D

I've just started feeling "normal" had a throat infection, then I just felt unwell, but since Saturday have felt back to my old self :-D

I put on a pound last week, but I was just eating what I fancied, but now back on track, don't know if I'll lose this week though, but at the moment I'm just pleased to be feeling well.

Good to see a new member, hello Robert :-D

I have so many good recipes, I really must write some for on here, thanks for your suggestions Ann.

You're all doing good, I will now have to make a big effort to keep up with you all.

Hi Robert,
I think that probably a lot of men and ladies need to lose weight but the ladies are more likely to actually do something about it.

So why not join us and see how much you can lose before Christmas.



AnnCardiff Report 15 Nov 2013 20:03

well if you want any tips you're in the right place Robert :-)


Robert Report 15 Nov 2013 19:57

It seems as though it is only the Ladies who have a problem or is it just that men will not admit it.

I would love to lose a stone in weight.


Dame*Shelly*("\(*o*)/") Report 15 Nov 2013 17:07

Sorry for the delay in replying but we haven't had any electricity for hours and so I couldn't connect to the Internet.

Thanks Ann for yor daily diet. The dessert sound good and I'll try it. I never eat breakfast and never have, but the rest of the day I eat quite well. I'm allergic to fish but I do eat a lot of chicken breast. I do feel better for losing weight and I haven't got much more to lose now.

Well done Paula for staying at target.

<3 <3. Thank you Ann, I struggle a bit due to IBS, but I am keeping to my goal weight for most of the times so I can't complain.


AnnCardiff Report 14 Nov 2013 15:16

hang in there Paula - you''ll get there in the end :-D


Paula+ Report 14 Nov 2013 14:12

I am managing to stay the same, which is a minor miracle at the moment, with far to much temptation.
