Hi everyone, well done Ann for getting to target :-D There are some great losses.
I have fallen off the wagon I'm afraid. I managed to loose a stone on my own in the summer and joined a slimming club in September to try and loose the last 10lbs that was hanging about. I'd like to be 10 stone give or take a couple of pounds. Well I have gained 6lbs since joining and eating everything I can get my hands on :-\

I wonder if its psychological that when permitted naughty stuff is on a plan I start to eat it, and then the cravings come back and its a slippery slope from there.

So the big question is, do I carry on with the slimming club or go it alone again? Due to work commitments I go to two different classes, one has a really nice bunch of people there, the other does not. The leader is lovely and runs both. I just wish I could keep at the nice group all the time but my work pattern does not work out that way.

I'm off now to start the prep on a healthy chilli. Its not the meals that I'm having which are the problem but the munching between them.

I reckon we're all doing good ladies :-D If you can't have a blow out now and again, then we'd be boring, as long as we don't get carried away, having something "off diet" does you good, if you put on one week, then getting it off the next, is a nice little challenge.

Go easy on yourselves eh :-D

Thanks Shelly. I am back to normal today, my tummy is as flat as a pancake; this is just how IBS affects me. I have been on a diet for so long now it does not feel like a diet anymore. We are going away for the weekend and have a wedding tomorrow, I will do my very best to be good! ;-) ;-) ;-)

Well done Lynda and Ann. It's so motivating reading of all your successes. Last week I was one lb off my goal which is really good. I have been suffering with IBS over the last week and feel very full and bloated so I keep away from the scales at the moment.

Well done Linda you will have to have your grandsons to stay more often!

Nearly at target too. I'm going all out to lose the weight I gained in England before it has the chance to take root and multiply. :-D

Thanks Ann :-D It'll be good to be at target before Christmas :)

Hello ladies :-D I have changed my weigh in day to a wednesday, just got back and I have LOST 4 lb :-0 I am amazed, as the last week I haven't been following the diet as I should of. We've had our Gandsons staying, whilst there Mum & Dad are in Rome, so I have cooked a lot of meals that the boys like, which aren't Slimming world meals. Anyway, just half a pound more andI will have lost a stone, then just 4 more pounds I'll be joining Ann at target :-D I'm sure you'll get back on track now Wendy, a poundand a half ain't bad for all them doughnuts :-D Well done to you Ann for staying in target. Good luck everyone for the coming week :-D

Well done Ann. How good you must feel to be at target. Hopefully your success will spur me on.


AnnCardiff Report 30 Oct 2013 20:15

stayed the same - much as expected so have adjusted my target weight to 10 stone and got my badge and lifetime membership as long as I stay within 3lb either side of 10 stone - very pleased :-D


AnnCardiff Report 30 Oct 2013 14:20

well done Wendy - glad you enjoyed yourself :-D

Off to weigh in later this afternoon and shall set my target at 10 stone

I'm just back from 2 weeks in England and I'm 1.5 pounds heavier. I'm surprised I got off so lightly after having Belgium buns with fresh cream in Greggs eaten with a large mug of hot chocolate. Jam doughnuts and lots of other fattening goodies that I can't get here. I had a lovely time with family and friends and am now working on the diet again. Every ounce gained was worth it.

Pleased to see everyone else is doing so well.

thanks folk - shall stick at 10 stone - well done Shelly!!

Well done Ann <3

I haven't been to weigh in this week, as went to the theatre on weigh in day, and couldn't get to another one another day, have been so busy, so will have to wait and see if I lost/gained. Feels funny not weighing in though, almost like playing the hop from school :-D

Ann, why not say target is 10 stone, then at least you won't have to pay, then if you want to go lower later, you can reset your target weight?
