    Right everyone! Who's up for a December challenge? For some of us it might be a couple of pounds or a stay the same with all the winter festivities, but I am going to aim for quite a high target for this time of year, 7lbs!...

    Anyone else up for a challenge?:)

    Hi Ladies

    I would like 5lbs off too which will make me the same as when I got married and my anniversary is on the 30th so that seems quite apt.

    Well since I have already lost 4lb this month (!) I will try to lose another 3lb before Christmas.

    I can but try!

    Dont look at the Christmas goodies on the shelves, people. Or at least, don't touch!

    Hey all! I'm back, have changed my target to 4lbs this month. Didn't weigh in this week as I know I was terrible last week, so next week is a fresh start!

    Well done everyone for the weight loss!

    Sona let's stick together, I'm aiming for 4lbs and whatever I have put on this week I'm just going to put behind me and start again for the month

    That's the spirit, Kirsty! Don't let it get you down - just move on now. We all 'cheat' now and then, sometimes majorly. It's how we cope afterwards that makes for success or failure.

    You'll be fine!

    With joy and humble gratitude I am able to post that so far, this month, I have lost 7 pounds.

    Might even lose a couple more - we shall see. Gotta watch out for Christmas dinner at my cousin's in Glasgow. She's treating Dad and myself to The Works. I might take some of my own pre-prepared 'festive' stuff to be on the safe side.

    Perhaps I could hint that an omelette with cheese, fresh tomato, onion and herbs would be a fab idea? Ha Ha.

    girlygirl1 - 7lbs - 7lbs lost - joy! - can I lose another 1lb?

    Sorry folks, I forgot to add this bit. I have no idea how to make the losses RED, though. Kirsty how did you manage it?

    (still can't believe I made target this month. Was stalled for around 9 weeks).

    Yay Ig! Yay everyone!

    And to the ones returning after a wee, erm, break (lol),double yay! This is the best way to lose weight and keep it off, and to stay mostly sane in the process.

    Keep on keepin' on!

    Lost another 2lb. So December losses finally total 9lb. Pinch, me someone! I must be dreaming...

    A month ago I'd have laughed at the mere idea of being able to lose 9lb this month. I think this must still be the 'whooshie' effect, and of having been stalled for such a long time. Whatever it is, please let it continue!

    My sons and friends are coming over tonight to see in the New Year. I've just come back from nine days in Glasgow with my Dad - we had a really nice family Christmas and I didn't worry about food. Not at all. I was careful, kept it low carb, and indulged only moderately in sugar free stuff. I enjoyed every mouthful.

    Love to all - have a great time tonight and all through 2010 xx
