    Hi Morgan - lovely to see you here.
    There were a few Spanish threads at one point, but all seem to be very quiet at the mo.
    The only 2 that ever have any activity on are
    http://www.minimins.com/slimming-wor...syn-foods.html (Spain free and low syn foods.)
    and
    http://www.minimins.com/slimming-wor...rld-spain.html (Starting Slimming World in Spain!)
    (Started by Brambilegs)

    But these are both very quiet too!

    You're welcome to come and chat on my thread - listed in my sig. There's another lady in Tenerife - Powla - who posts on there.

    How is everyone getting on in Spain. Seem to have all gone quiet. I am 6kgs down since starting and that is with having a couple of bad days. Not bad for just over a month.

    Caroline - well done chica, that's a great start.
    I'm doing ok but struggling a bit at the mo. Went back to the UK last weekend to take a friend out for luch for her 60th.
    Seemed to eat for England the whole time we were there as I was sooooooooo cold.
    The eating seems to have carried on since we got back too as mum is with me for a holiday and that is always stressful for both of us.

    Mum went home this afternoon after 9 days here.
    She has dementia and now can't walk very much so it is stressful all round!
    Going to chill for the next 4 days and see if I can get back to normal.

    Enjoy your chill out you deserve it, it is always hard with family visiting but even harder for you with your mum having dementia.
    I am sure you will get back on track again once you are chilled.
    Have you got much to lose? Or are you just really maintaining now?

    Thanks Caroline. No more to lose now - just maintaining (have been now for 16 months - Phew!)
    I'm still slightly "overweight" when it comes to BMI but I'm a "big" lady in terms of bone structure.
    And at just a couple of years off 60 I decided that any thinner and I would start to look scrawny.
    Friends who have known me for years keep saying I'm too thin already as my face (& scraggy neck) really do show the differnece.

    Not had much of a chill day today as things have gone a bit pear shaped regarding the re-homing of her cat.
    But that's a long story - details on my fred.

    Still got to do another 27 posts before I can read your threads, looking forward to being able to read it.
    Well done for maintaining for 16 months. I don't agree with BMI, if I used that I would be having to lose nearly 5 stone instead of 3 and my doctor is more than happy with a 3stone target for me, I too am big boned.
    Not easy to rehome cats here, so many need homes same as dogs. Try and chill out tomorrow.

    Tell me about it! I have 3 adopted cats that were just dumped in the streets.

    2 we got as 8 month old kittens from a rescue. They were thrown in a dumpster with their 4 siblings.
    They both have deformities (very short "broken" tails) and no one else wnated the.
    We've had them now for 5½ years and they are adorable.

    Our latest we found by the bar last September. She'd been dumped in the village at 6-7 months old and already pregnant. So sweet and so friendly.
    So I just scooped her up and took her home. She was covered in engine oil from living under a car. So she had a bath.
    Have you ever tried to wash a cat? Don't bother. It took 2 of us to hold her down!

    The older 2 are joined at the hip almost. Never do anything on their own and do everything together all the time.
    They bully our new baby cat unmercifully. She spent 3 months living in the house with her own litter tray and she wouldn't come out at all and if they got in there was lots of fur flying.
    I finally moved her out of the house after Xmas and she is now living in the kitchen (strange old Spanish house - where our kitchen is the opposite side of the courtyard from the main building). When she tries to use the litter tray in the garage there are still some hisses and they try to "inspect" what she is doing and she doesn't like that all. Mind you, at least the fur removals are now almost nil and in the last 2-3 weeks she has started to venture into the courtyard occasionally. She's been with us 6 months now!

    Poor baby.

    Lots of piccies of them here. As you can see - I adore my cats

    I want to get back to target! And I keep messing up!
    So I've reset everything (again, again) and this is what I want to achieve

    START (7/7/14) - 79.4 Kg (12:7 - exactly 1 st over target )
    1. Get back to where I was at the start of the year - 77.5 (12:2¾)
    - achieved 14/7/14 and still clinging on (25/8)
    2. Get back to Original target
    by 24/11/14 - 75.75 (11:13)
    3. Get back to Interim target
    by 12/01/15 - 74.4 (11:10)
    4. Get back to Final target [5 stone shiney & BMI under 26]
    by 02/03/14 - 73.2 (11:7½)
