Advent Calendar Girls 10 Week Challenge!

Forgot to post last week :( but I put 3lbs on (blame OH for his bday week :p )

But 2.5 off this week

So I didn't complete the challenge and actually really struggled this month but it has made me try and work at it and keep going and it's nice to hear how everyones done during the weeks

Whats the next challenge guys - Valentines day?? :D

hi all
Sadly I gained 2.5lbs this week and so have completely failed the Christmas Challenge. On the plus side I had a fab weekend in London - chestnuts on Oxford Street, mulled wine round Greenwich market, chocolate fountain at a party on Monday and oooooo brandy truffles in the office!!! Ooops
 
Leia247 - bit of an up and down couple of weeks chica. BUT you're still with us!!!
That's a big achievement in itself.

MissBeee - hey no talk of failure! Every single one of us that have fought through to the end is now lighter than when we started this little challenge 10 weeks ago.

We're all winners imho!
 
Weighing in early today, this afternoon instead of evening, as I'm off work now till the New Year. Had a look on the scales at home this morning, looking not as bad as I thought it was going to be! Will update later.

Who mentioned a Valentines challenge?
 
Arctic - pooh to the gain! But you're another one of only a few of the challengees that has lost 10 or more pounds over the last 10 weeks.

So be proud! :D
 
Buenas Noches mis amigos.

Tomorrow I'm off on holiday until 27th with no internet access so the final results won't be posted until late Tuesday evening.

So get all your updates in by then for WIs up to and including Christmas Day.

Finally can I wish you all

Feliz Navidad

Here's hoping it's not too stressful and you don't burn the sprouts!

And have a little giggle at these.

Hi All,
Sorry that I have been awol these past three weeks, Some of you may remember(if you actually remember me, that is) I was going back to England for a holiday. I actually came back lighter (63.8) but, now my sister is over here with me, I have gained again. Now at 65.0 Back where I started. Grrrrr:mad:
If there is to be a Valentine challenge, please may I join in to hopefully be my 3rd lucky try? I have already set my start date and hubb's birthday is on the 14th, so I am really really really determined this time...if you'll let me play??:family2:
Pomette, I know you will not get this until after,Loved the thumbnails... and felices fiestas a ti tambien, distfrutes mi amiga X

Well it was to be expected, those little Xmas indulgences creep up on us! Mines the result of staff night out then a trip to pizza hut, my first one since may, with family! So only 1 pound isn't that bad really!!! Yes Pom, you are right it'll all go in the new year!!! :) x
Exactly! It's silly season and all you have to do is look back at your progress (can you see it in graph form?) to see that 1lb on is totally insignificant in the grand scheme of things! Besides, you're probably so disciplined normally, why shouldnt you let your hair down a little now and again? X
 
Didn't quite make it!! Missed WI Week before last - Last week lost 4.5lbs this week (yesterday) gained 1.5lbs - I've lost count of where I was in the challenge!!

Gonna keep going though!!

Welldone to all who have achieved there targets and too thouse who havn't don't give up just extend the challenge time!!

It's Not a Race to Slim!
Hannah - your total is 17 lbs lost in the last 10 weeks! Which is pretty blumin' good as far as I'm concerned.
