    Right, now recruiting! everyone welcome! I don't fancy being part of a one-man team. (or one-person team to be accurate).

    Free membership with advice & support thrown in. Welcome aboard! and please post your losses/achievements every Sunday. Starting tonight if you wish:p

    I don't need to be half the person I used to be I'm afraid... maybe about three quarters of what I used to be - am I allowed in?!

    I do a good line in support and advice, if that sways your decision at all ;)

    Thanks Mrsnb :)

    What days do the rest of you weigh in?

    Hope that you are all having a good day! Mine has been going downhill since the I weighed in this morning (house hunting/moving complications, and the mister seems to have gone AWOL, so the agents are all ringing ME instead :sigh:) but I am still on plan at least!

    Of course - welcome aboard - anyone who achieves normal weight will be a great source of help to the rest of us:)

    That's the ticket - Please don't make me blush calling me sir....My lord will suffice. Ok then, Steve it is;)

    My stone in 4 weeks - yes it's great and inspiring! - not sure how long the 2nd stone will take, but will give it a go.

    Well done Pogle. Hopefully I've quoted these messages correctly and a warm welcome to everyone.

    I suggested Sunday as that is a quiet time (in the main) but anyone can report anything. Not exactly structured here lol.

    Pmsl Steve!

    Well done to you all on your losses so far!

    How are you all feeling this week? At the moment i feel i'm doing really well. I have done Slimming World before but since having my baby (well he's 20 months now - so i should write 'since having my little terror ;)) I've been on and off plan, joined group - stopped ging, re-joined and stopped going again. Although for various reasons.

    But just under a month ago i decided enough was enough and am now 10lbs lighter :D

    Here's hoping for another good week!

    Good luck at the weigh in tonight Hannah - do let us know how you get on :)
    That comfort pie sounds absolutely delicious! I shall have to make some next week :D

    I saw your news about no longer being dependant on insulin Steve - that is amazing, and just goes to show what healthy eating can do for you! I am so so pleased for you - you must be on cloud nine :character00100: (gives me an excuse to use that smilie if nothing else lol)

    Glad it is going well for you Sealmylips! Long may that continue :D

    Hannah - hope all went well at weigh in! I get terribly nervous too, and i'm really going to have to check that recipe out! lol

    Well done Steve on your news about the Insulin. My partner was diagnosed diabetic last year and was put on Insulin a few months ago when in hospital due to his heart condition - he's hoping to be off it soon too (fingers crossed!)

    Steve thats fantastic news!! My hubby is type 2 and hoping that if he loses some weight he can lose the tablets.

    I sts this week :confused: not sure why as i've been really good! All I can think is either its because I lost double what I have been last week, or because i've had a bad cold i've only really been eating 2 proper meals a day. Oh well, not gonna let it get me down!

    Well here i am - some leader-by-example I'm proving to be! - I had my first gain this evening - since been to Asda to do a midweek shop and keep topped up.

    I'm not as devastated as I might have been - I think it is the insulin thing - I'm so pleased with not having to take it.

    I felt so good, much fitter, bought two pairs of 38in waist trousers as others were falling off and just knew I had lost weight - yet the scales don't lie lol.

    I'm starting a new venture on Sunday when I go out with my new ramblers group for a 12.5 hike in the Northumberland countryside:eek: - just as the temperatures reach zero in the northeast lol. Well gang, as they say, "No pain, no gain".

    Wish me luck - oh and do as I say not as I do:p

    Still feel great though lol.

    Don't beat yourself up about a STS Hannah, it might just have been your body adjusting after your big loss the week before, as you say.

    Steve - I think that inches are a better indicator of how you are doing than scales personally - especially waist measurements, as that can have such a big effect on your health. So if you've had to buy new trousers, because the old ones were falling down, AND you've been able to ditch the insulin - I'd say you're still well on track, and you're right not to worry overly about your first gain!

    And good luck with your 12.5 mile hike at the weekend... rather you than me in those temperatures!
