yesterday had cereal, fruit, laughing cow on ryvita crispbakes, and some sweet and sour quorn stuff.. today, tomato juice, cottage cheese and muesli so far, beef stew for tea I think... still the same weight, but often it seems to plateau for weeks, then I drop a few lbs quite quickly... so we will wait and see! At least I haven't put any back on, that's the main thing!
thankyou - I'm baffled by the plateau then sudden drop thing though!
I now have a ticker.. that's good, the visual representation makes me see how much closer I am now to reaching my goal than I am to my start weight!
been out for lunch, steak, fat chips and salad, and half a pint of beer - would have been healtheir without the chips, (oh, and the beer!) but it was lovely!
Something light for tea later and I should be ok! Got a lot of walking to do this afternoon, so should burn some of it off!
well, yesterday was hectic, and after pigging out the day before I didnt eat much - orange juice, coffees, a cereal bar and some fruit and pineapple for lunch, and half a beef chow mein for supper - this morning I am 3lbs lighter again, so 7lbs less than a week ago - I think this has got to be due to water retention prior to totm, its the only way I can explain it - static for three weeks, then half a stone off in days!
Not complaining by the way, just trying to understand what mechanism is at work here!
... just realised, that's exactly 4 stone gone since last September!!! Two more still to go though!

Hi Sonya, well done with your weightloss so far you have done so well. I hope this week is going ok for you. x
Well done, keep going you are doing great x
you have done so well.you should be really proud of yourself.good luck with the resr.
hey guys, thanks a lot! I've had a random few days, which has involved a lot of dashing about, and eating at odd times... however, things should be more settled after this week, so I will get focussed again and carry on!
well, I'm stuck at 13 stone... nothing lost in last couple of weeks... however, I have beguin training for race for life, and my thigh and bum muscles are a lot firmer, so I'm hoping that some of this is muscle weight replacing fat... my stomach seems to be shrinking a little, so fingers crossed!
I'm not too concerned so long as I don't gain - I did have a temporary 3lb gain, after a weekend out eating and drinking with a friend, but it went again, so not too concerned by that!
Will keep on, so long as the general trajectory is down, I'm happy - I'm in no big rush!
well, 3lbs gone today, again a sudden drop (again coinciding with end of totm) after a plateau!
All my clothes are too big, went to matalan yesterday for some tops and t shirts... and came out with a 50s style dress... not at all what I normally buy! Size 16 too!!!
Just need to work out how to wear it now and what with!! I may ask for some advice over on the health and beauty forum...
Well done 3lbs is fantastic. So encouraging to be buying smaller clothes in different styles, really makes the whole losing weight seem real.
Love Barb xxxxx
