    Dear all
    Sorry I haven't been online for a while.
    I had an enforced holiday after the builders wanted us to move out for repairs to our damaged ceiling (strike a chord Corey???), and what with work, wedding, stag do etc. I have not had time to logon.

    Anyway I am back now - next WI is next Thursday and I am hoping to be my lowest weight since I was 21 or so !!!

    I have a couple or 5 pounds to lose by then so it is do-able.

    Best wishes to all!

    Thanks BL,
    I have felt like something has been missing.

    I habve been pretty good over the last few weeks all things considered.

    The stag do was great - I had decided to have a great day/night out - and it was - Paimntballing (my first ever time and boy am I glad that i am now quite thin! as it was hot work). We then went for beer/cider/perry in Billericay ( a nice old Essex town) followed by a Curry.

    Now, you may remember that my last meel as a fatty was a curry so I was really looking froward to this. Unfortunately, when it turned up it tasted as if they had poured a whole tub of salt in - and meybe they had. It was too late to have another one cooked so my meal consisted of a popaddom and some vegetable side dishes (oh plus a naan bread).

    So after several weeks of eating some food on some days and packs on others, I an just a few pounds up so am very happy indeed.

    Now the goal is to actually get onto RTM.

    I only have one event coming up that will get in the way so it is full steam ahead. I should be off the diet before Christmas and 2008 will be the year that I lost 10 stone (well 9 of it in 6 months and the last one will have taken the same at my rate!)

    Thats great Mikey! SOunds like you had a great time!! You'll knock that last little bit off before you know it!!

    I am still buzzing and as determined as ever. :D Just a pound away from 8 stone now, leaving another stone and a half to go. I may go for another 1/2 in RTM - not sure yet. I will decide when I see how I look and feel then. But its going good, and enjoying the milestones as they come and go! So yeah - about 10 stone for me too.

    We'll get there! :D

    Hey COrey - great news about your house!!! RESULT!!!!! :)

    Persaverence always does pay off. As we are all learning now as well!!

    Take care guys!

    Hi Mikey,

    Great to see you back, missed those words of wisdom. You are an inspiration, losing almost 10 stone by christmas thats fantastic.

    Good luck with your last few pounds, not that you need it.

    Thanks BL and Lisa, you are both doing so well. Youe encouragement is also a really great help as i can tell you it is v.hard to go back to abstinence after a few days off!

    Blonde Logic Yes. You can.

    THanks Mike. :)

    Is your ticker current...do you have just 15 pounds to go still? If so - you'll knock that off in no time!! I don;t know if that includes the few pounds fro your enf hols? But either way - good luck. I know you will do it - just recall the same determination you had before, buckle down, and just push through. You always had good losses weekly so it will come of fast. As long as you are a good boy, and not naughty. ;) :D

    That is a driving factor in my refusing to lapse - I just know I would struggle to get back!!! But you'll get there.

    Just nice to see you back. :)
