    No more Monster Munching - Rebooted!

    Hi all,

    Well I started a thread a couple of months ago here - http://www.minimins.com/slimming-wor...0lbs-lost.html (No More Monster Munching ... [Week 7: 10lbs lost]) - and saw good initial losses followed by a few weeks of stagnantion and then thanks to working long hours and a week away, 2 weeks of nothingness.

    So, today is a new start and with a holiday to Menorca in 9 weeks, I'm more determined than ever to shift some serious weight.

    Despite going off piste for the last two weeks, the damage hasn't been as bad as I feared, and I am currently tipping the scales 18st 13lbs, which means I'm still 9lbs lighter than when I started the initital thread back in April.

    Anyway, my diary is pretty clear between now and the holiday and I would LOVE to be able to get down to the low end of 17st before then. I have lots of exercise pencilled in, including park runs, bike rides and long walks, so I'm reasonably hopeful.

    Cheers!

    EDIT: I'm going to try a new weigh in day to see what effect that has. My holiday is exactly 9 weeks away so am now going to weigh in on a Thursday. All stats etc remain the same.

    Welcome to the Thursday club I've just smashed into the 18s buy losing 4.5 lbs this week. Was a bit of a shock, I tell you

    The only thing I want to mention is that you are aware of not "treating" yourself too much at the weekend "because you can pull it back before Thursday". I speak from bitter experience...that way lies maintaining and gaining!

    Thank you Theria, and well done on your losses - absolutely brilliant - and inspiring, too. Did you think you'd had a good week?

    I think the Thursday weigh in will be good for me - but will take on board what you have said re: the weekends. I think I will be OK as my diary is pretty clear now, apart from a stag afternoon and an evening invite to a wedding. But they're definitely managable.

    As mentioned, If I can lsoe 3lbs per week, that's nigh on 2st which would be phenomenal for me and my confidence ahead of the holiday.

    I have a decision to make ... the 6 guys in the office have started doing 'pie day friday' where we take it in turns to go to the local butchers and get pies in. The trouble is, the pies are one of the greatest things I have ever tasted!

    Thank you I knew I'd been totally on plan but after only losing 2 lbs in the previous fortnight I wasn't expecting such a huge whoosh. I used 73 out of a possible 105 syns but I drank no alcohol at all. I'd been having the odd glass of wine and counting it previously. One of my problems is moderation when it comes to alcohol (and then what I eat once I've cast caution to the wind...). I think I'm an all or nothing girl - and nothing is a better option for me I'm going away with the boys for a few days from Sunday and it's going to be hard to stick to no alcohol, but I'm going to restrict myself to one drink a night.

    3lbs a week is a lot to aim for - but men do tend to lose more and faster than we ladies - one of those biology things. We'll all be here cheering you on!

    1) "Not at the moment, thanks - I'm trying to eat healthier and that's one of those things that will disrupt my progress and make it difficult to keep going. Maybe when I'm further along I'll be able to work it into my plan."

    2) Try to accurately estimate the syns, eat, enjoy and restrict your syns for the rest of the week. If this happens every Friday though you're going to be working with restricted syns for a long time, and that won't be good - what happens if something *else* comes up?

    3) Get creative and experiment with Free or low syn alternative recipes that you can share with the office.

    What's that strap line I see on here - "Being overweight is hard. Losing weight is hard. Pick your hard."

    Brilliant stuff, and I know what you mean regarding alcohol. It's just too damn nice! ;-)

    I am hoping it's realistic as I am doign lots of exercise - cycling 15 miles tomorrow, 3m run on Saturday and then a 10 mile hike in the Dales on Sunday.

    Brilliant advice, as ever, and I love that saying, absolutely bang on.

    I got Pieday Friday wrong too, it's only the first friday after payday each month. Much more managaeable.

    Well, last week was a complete write off as was unexpectedly away with work again for a few days. However, amazingly, I have stayed the same, which I think is a big result!

    So, no damage done, still 18 stones 13lbs and we go again. Going to forget about last week and re-reboot. Holiday now in 8 weeks.

    Right, I've started properly now and been a good day. When I'm in the zone I find it reasonably 'easy' to keep on plan and not think about loads of food all day!

    There was a group0n deal today for a bootcamp which I have bought and am looking forward to doing. 8 sessions for 8. Determined to do this!
