    WOW well done on your 2lb loss and new shiny
    I bet it felt great being able to put those clothes in a bag for charity! Make sure you keep at least one pair of trousers so you can do the before and after shot whilst standing in your old trousers and showing how big they are on you now

    It was great Surreygal - especially as he then said 'Wow - you've lost loads of weight...oh, am I not supposed to say that? Is it not politically correct? Well, how on earth is a man supposed to comment in this situation!!!'

    Thanks MiniMum - I'm not sure I've still got any of my biggest clothes - think I threw them all out a while back, mind you, I bet there's something hiding somewhere (probably in the bottom of a laundry basket full of stuff waiting to be ironed - and it will probably waiting until the next blue moon!!!).

    Had a pretty rubbish day today. I must learn to deal with it better when a day ends up being not as I expected! I had another business meeting that overran, so when I got to the sandwich shop they'd only got chilli left to go on my baked potato. Now it didn't look too oily, and it did have both kidney beans and chick peas in it, as well as onions, mushrooms and of course, tomato, so I decided it would have to do and I would be on an EE day...

    Then my afternoon meeting seriously overran and I ended up having to rush straight out to meet a friend. By the time I got to the restaurant I was starving, and my willpower was zero - so I ended up having potato skins with cheese and bacon, followed by chicken and chips

    In my defence, I did have a massive salad with it!!!!!!

    Hopefully tomorrow will be better....

    Tuesday: EE
    Brekkie: Crunchy bran (HEB), ff yoghurt, strawberries
    Lunch: Baked potato, chilli (5 syns for oil?)
    Dinner: Potato skins with cheese and bacon (HEA plus 8 syns?), chicken (didn't eat skin), chips (12 syns), large salad (no dressing or coleslaw)

    Syns today: 25

    Hi Spanx. I started here last week and love it . I am so amazed at the staying power of so many people in these diaries ..it shows how sustainable the SW plan is .. You have done sooooo well and , like you ,I have the laugh at yourself approach. Being able to laugh at yourself is so important and I will do it whatever size I am..I can relate to so many of those ideas in your first post.. I hope you are getting to cross some off the list now.

    Thank you dm - and good luck on your journey! Minimins really is great isn't it?!

    I think the most important thing I have learnt this time round (second time on SW - first time got to about this weight and stalled, finally put it all back on and more!) is that you really can do this for life.

    If you need some more inspiration, look at Capricorn or Gail's (gl and then some numbers, can never remember what they are!) diaries - both really inspirational and, like me, both in it for the long haul!

    I've had a rocky couple of days, I've been eating out a lot this week, catching up with friends while my son is away - and I've realised I've got another 3 nights out next week and then a few days away with family - eek!

    Still, I've not been too bad:

    Wednesday: EE
    Brekkie: Crunchy bran (HEB), ff yoghurt, strawberries
    Lunch: Baked potato, beans, apple
    Dinner: Chicken, gammon, cheese (HEA), bbq sauce (2 syns, only had a little!), peas, chips (oops! 12 syns), huge salad

    Syns today: 14

    Thursday: EE
    Brekkie: Crunchy bran (HEB), ff yoghurt, strawberries
    Lunch: Baked potato, beans, salad, apple
    Dinner: Joe's peppered chicken (v. nice!), huge salald, rice with peas and mushrooms
    Snack: ff Yoghurt, Kitkat (5.5 syns)

    Syns today: 5.5

    Week so far: 64

    [QUOTE=Spanx;3901319]I had a great morning this morning - I went through my wardrobe and tried on all my old clothes and then packed them all away in bags waiting for the next charity collection!

    Most of my old skirts fell down over my hips and I could get all my old trousers on without undoing the zips!
    What a fantastic feeling that must have been..so worth all the effort.

    Hi Diana, it was great! The only not great thing is that I've now got nothing to wear to a business meeting on Monday, so I think I might have to go shopping this afternoon!

    I have no idea at the moment though, what will suit me. I've seen other people on here say the same thing - that now they've lost weight they have no idea what to buy. All my old clothes were of the 'what will cover me up the most?' variety!

    I still have big boobs (36H) and a big tum, but my shoulders, arms, bum and legs look much slimmer... well, I shall just go and face one of my least favourite things - changing rooms with big mirrors!

    Got back on track yesterday and managed a great NSV for me. We all went to the pub after work and I had 2 diet cokes, when I really wanted a beer! Then someone bought 6 packets of crisps for everyone to share and I didn't have one!!!

    Before SW, I'd probably have demolished at least 2 of the packets!

    Friday: EE
    Brekkie: Crunchy bran (HEB), ff yoghurt, strawberries
    Lunch: Baked potato, beans, apple
    Dinner: Joe's peppered chicken, baked potato, huge salad
    Snacks: ff yoghurt, KitKat (5.5 syns)

    Syns today: 5.5
    Week so far: 69.5

    I had the strangest experience this afternoon - I went clothes shopping and actually enjoyed it!!! AND - I had to call the changing room lady in both M&S and Next and ask her to check whether they'd got things in SMALLER sizes!!! Ended up buying 3 pairs of trousers in a 14 from M&S and about 6 tops from next in a 16 and 18 - I was over the moon and grinned all the way home!

    I also bought some things that I would never have bought a few months ago - fitted tops and short tops - ie tops that finish at the waist rather than covering my lower stomach and hips. Fantabulous!

    I also had a bra fitting in Bravissimo and have shrunk another size to a 36GG - all in all, a great afternoon!

    Thank you my lovelies! Still on a bit of a high - I had to try them all on again last night just to check they did really fit!!!!!

    Just 0.5lb off for me this week, but I'm quite pleased with that after 3 nights out.

    The next week and a half will be a bit challenging, as I've got 3 meals out again this week and then I go away for a few days on Saturday - one day of which is a family celebration with a slap-up meal and wine! So, realistically, I think I'm hoping for a STS when I next WI in two weeks time (although I'll probably have a sneaky peek on the scales to see the damage when I get back from my trip!)

    I like that - glad they still fit too . Agree with previous poster, 0.5lb is a good result and still a loss. Fingers crossed for you while you're away. Sorry I've not been about much but I am keeping my eye on you
