    Hi everyone, just wondering whether anyone is graduating next year? It would be great to have a bunch of us to keep each other motivated until then. I'm looking to lose 2lbs a week until then and be the thinnest I've ever been! Enough is enough - I really do not want to be the fat one on the day!

    Hiya,

    Wish you the best of luck, graduation was a major push in my losing weight since I was gonna be stuck in a picture my parents/family would be proud of, I wanted to look much better than I did. I did get there in the end though, and I'm sure you will. Just keep picturing yourself in that gown and hat lol. Good luck :)

    Thanks! It's definitely a motivator. To think that I'm gonna have these pics forever basically. Well done on losing the weight for your grad :). It IS possible!

    Just saw your stats - 126lb loss - WOW! So inspirational!

    Tell me about it! I've had a rough for weeks but as of today I have realised it REALLY is now or never and once again I am really motivated to succeed!

    I graduate in July as long as I pass all my exams lol. How about you?

    Hey JuBean, assignments really mess up the best plans don't they! Everything just turns to chaos around me... in my place it does anyway!

    I'm hoping to loose 4 stone by mine (mid July) :S But I think this is a bit ambitious! Still no harm in trying I guess :)

    nope no harm what so ever!!

    got all my family on board with mine - or so i thought. Then my boyfriend and mum went food shopping with me and bought loads of chocolate! not good.

    No assignment time is bad, i have about 3 weeks untill its all done though. Worst part i find is that i have to do alot in teh library and im not allwed to eat in there and its freezing......not a good place. The minute i leave i just want to get warm and comfort eat!

    I would like to lose around 4 stone too. I'm sure we can do if we stick at it!

    And the thought of me being in pictures right now - well it definitely wouldn't be a sight for sore eyes lol. If anything this should help keep us motivated!!!

    JuBean - I know what you mean about wanting to exercise but having deadlines. I can't exercise at all when I have deadlines but I really hope to change that after my final essay is handed in!

    I am graduating this year too - but don't think I am going to bother with the ceremony. Hope I am happy with my weight by that time though, as I get married 2 months after.

    I'm off to the library again tomorrow... unfortunately. Books need returning, the weight of them I definitely think carrying them round must count for something! Wishful thinking ;)
