    So I need to lose 50lb to get to my target by 14th October. Does anyone want to join me for some mutual support & encouragement?

    I'll list our losses every Friday. Join me in dancing on the table (if health & safety allows) for losing something each week :D

    Hi Lumpy, count me in please :eek:

    I have 61lbs to target and was hoping to be close by my birthday on 19th October so 50lbs by then will do me just fine!

    I weigh in on a Sunday morning. I shall happily join you in dancing on tables for the losses :D

    Good luck!!!

    Welcome Missfreckle and Sallywally. Seems that we are all aiming to squeeze into that little number by October. It's so possible that it'd be a shame not to.

    Polish your dancing shoes.

    Welcome Ros B and Miss Bean.

    I particularly like the vanilla shakes in coffee, I split the pack between two cups to make it last longer and add a sweetener. Gives a great lift in the morning.

    Those new to Exante might find the first few days the hardest until ketosis kicks in. It will get easier though. I've just finished week 6 and the results are really beginning to show, hang in there.

    Yay!! It's fantastic there's so many of us - plenty of support to keep us going :eek:

    I'm on day 5 now and in ketosis and it is much easier - haven't felt the slightest bit hungry. Weigh in on sunday so fingers crossed!!

    Good luck everyone!

    You guys are keeping me on track already!

    My husband has got a new job today so the little thought had entered my head to celebrate tonight with a Chinese (only beanshoot type things) but then I remembered I had signed up to this challenge so have decided against!

    Hey Lumpy
    Can I join too? Have 54lbs left to lose and nothing particular happening in October, but it would still be great to have got to goal by then! I weigh in Friday too so we'll dance on the tables together... it's been a while since my dancing-on-the-tables-on-a-friday-night days!! Hope I don't break anything (the table or myself!!) :D

    Welcome on board Shelliewoo83 and lasteverdiet.

    How is everyone today?

    Spent the last frustrating hour on the phone to a sweet but ineffectual guy at Virgin trying to get my internet up again (been down since last night). Finally transferred to someone who knew what to do and hey presto!

    Consoled myself with a vegetable soup which was strangely comforting.
