    April is coming rather rapidly. What are your targets for April? My target - to maintain whatever weight I leave March at! First month of maintenance here we come - I think its going to be the toughest month yet!

    Mine is to overcome my fear of gyms so I can get fitter and hopefully lose another half a stone in April.

    Took the first step today by actually joining a gym...even though I'm still borderline phobic about setting foor in one! Tomorrow, I get to do the really hard part and actually humiliate myself by undertaking some exercise in one. Yikes!

    Oh, and as an added bonus, I get 5 Personal Training sessions with my membership...my personal idea of hell.

    Oh, and the membership is my birthday present from my OH (my idea)! I usually get a boozy night out and a handbag or shoes.
    Remind me again why I'm doing this to myself? Sitting on the sofa scoffing chocolate was soooo much easier!

    Good luck everyone with your April goals.

    Well, I took my first step towards my April goal yesterday by actually going into the gym and using some of that scary looking equipment. I thought I may need sedatives to stave off the panic attack I felt sure would happen but I couldn't work out the calorie content in a valium sandwich...

    Today I am starting towards my half stone loss in April...by going out for dinner with friends to celebrate my OH's birthday. So, I feel another nerve-wrecking gym session may be on the cards for tomorrow to try to mitigate the damage of the gin session I am planning for later...

    My sister says a trip to the gym is the perfect antidote to a hangover! Enjoy tonight and well done for getting into the gym - I'm sure it'll get easier. x

    PS A valium sandwish is about 177 cals without butter ;)

    Lol :D Thanks, Judith :)

    Until recently, my anti-dote to a hangover was 2 litres of Coke and a fish finger sandwich (white bread, loads of butter!) and somehow the gym isn't quite holding the same appeal but you never know...I might even enjoy it :8855:

    My goal for April is to get down to 12 stone. That's 6.5lbs for the month.

    Its taken me to months to lose 7.5 though so its quite a challenge for me!!

    My goal for April is to lose 7lbs - I know I'm going to accept that I'm not going to lose as much this month as last, but I think 7lbs is achievable :)

    Well, I only started two weeks ago, and I've lost 7lbs so far :D. The first week is usually always the biggest loss though, and mostly water etc. I created a weight loss regime for myself - limiting my cal intake by 500 per day (which is -1lb over a week), and burning 500 cals a day doing exercise (another lb), so I never tend to lose less than 2lbs a week, and no more than 3 hopefully or I might get saggy skin(!) :(
    My first major goal is to be down to 160lbs by the end of May, and hopefully a size 14 :winner:

    oh wow! Thats a good loss so far!! I lost 6lbs my 1st week but was doing it from home, i have only counted on here since i started at group.

    Im doing SW pure because i know it works as ive done it before and i never got the results i wanted with cal counting as i was always hungry, it sounds like you've got it all figured out though!

    Good luck with your loss and let me know how you get on! We can spur each other on, when do you weigh?

    Ah I'm losing from home, I'd never be brave enough to join a group lol! Generally I weigh Saturday mornings but I had a sneaky look at the scales earlier, couldn't help myself - 177.8, so only a 1lb loss this week :eek:. I've done hardly any exercise cos I've been busy with essays, so tbh I was expecting to STS, but any loss is a good loss!

    I'm starting the exercise again in earnest tomorrow now that most of my work is out of the way - and avoiding all kinds of chocolate stuff over Easter :p. I bought a pedometer and it's been a godsend, it means I never burn less than 500 cals in a session and usually more like 600/650 :D

    Your goals are the same as mine. Although, I would like to get to 12 stone 7lbs first then 12 stone. I wanted to get to 12. by my birthday in mid April, but I dont think ill get there so im aiming for 12 stone 7 first.
