    Thank you :) I'm not quite done yet ... I have about 1 to 1 1/2 stone left to go until target but I did this picture yesterday (after being nagged to do it by my sister) and couldn't quite believe it. My head has yet to catch up with my body!!

    I do mainly Red days as I tend to overeat on carbs if they aren't measured and I'm not good at recognising when I'm 'full'. I batch cook things like Diet Coke Chicken, Spag Bol, Chilli, curries, Chinese Pork/Chicken, Liver & Onions, Ginger Chicken/Pork etc(I tend to just create recipes as I go along lol), but I make sure that at least 60% of what's in the pot is superfree ... And then serve it with more superfree - so things like butternut squash instead of potato, courgette ribbons instead of spaghetti, cauliflower instead of rice :)

    I have a 'treat day' once a week, which is basically an EE day LOL, where I might make paella or a fish risotto (I love fish!) and not measure the rice and I never, ever, have bread (because it gives me severe IBS).

    I don't exercise beyond my normal walking to and from work/into town/taking the dogs out, I don't snack between meals (part of my long term change of lifestyle) and use an average of around 5 syns a day (as part of meals rather than treats usually).

    Written down it sounds quite restrictive, but I really don't find that it is - there honestly hasn't been a day when I've craved anything food wise and if I feel like I deserve a treat I head for the craft shop (my new and healthier addiction lol) :D

    Awww - Thank you :)

    My own consultant and the area co-ordinator have spoken to me about it Jeanne, but I honestly don't have the time or inclination. I already work full time in a very people centred and emotionally intensive job (I'm a Funeral Director), plus have two young grandchildren who live very close by and who want to spend lots of time with me :D AND it would seriously eat into my crafting time (I also have a fairly new small business selling my makes) which probably wouldn't be a positive thing for me as it's a major stress reliever.

    I'm more than happy to help others out as a 'Buddy' and to do things like batch cook with them to help them stay on track and stuff, but those are flexible things and I can fit them around my other commitments, which I wouldn't be able to do with set sessions and SW admin etc.

    You are amazing. Such a motivation. How much on average was you losing per week? Can't believe you've done that in such little time x

    LOL! I love being busy :) (but at my own pace if that makes sense - I do not cope well with external time pressures sadly)

    I think it averages out at about 3 1/2lb a week Camplestar, but in terms of week by week it has varied from 7 1/2lb (my first week) to a couple of weeks with 1lb losses :)
