    Right... I've just had a gig booked for 15th August. It's a big event and lots of people that I've known over the years (but many I haven't seen for a while) will be there. It's a big public event. That's nerve wracking enough without worrying about my weight!

    The gig is roughly 8 weeks away. I need to totally focus on my eating as I want to look as good as I possibly can by then. I should easily be able to shift another half a stone by then, but more would be better. So, my Mini-Mins chums... your job is to keep me focussed and help me really focus on keeping to plan as I want to look fabulous on the 15th.

    Here we go!:D

    We will focus you!!! Get in that zone Minders...you can do it.

    I'm doing a gig on the 15th August - it's a wedding and whilst I won't be on show as such, it's still something I need to look good for whilst playing on stage, so I will be your 15th August SW buddy :)

    Yep. I play guitar and sing lead in a rock covers band... and for this gig I want to look more "hot mama" than "Mama Cass"! LOL!:party0049:

    I didn't know you were in a covers band! Me too... Well, ours is more of a function band than 'rock' and we play all sorts of stuff. I play sax and BVs. Have you got a website?! *nosey*

    Yay to us bandy types!! :D

    Actually one of my motivations for losing weight this time was a monsoon dress in the sale that the singer suggested all the girls in the band purchase to wear on stage. I absolutely refused to buy the 16, even though the 14 was too tight. Now, the 14 is too big! :)

    Wow Minders I had no idea you were a musician! How fab! You'll do it no bother, but I'm standing by with my tongue sharpened!

    Great idea from Hellie especially as your gigs are the same date. We can badger you both!

    Yep... go us! :D

    I told my OH that I had this goal... and he started in on another one of his lectures about how I should exercise more, do this, do that... etc. Says he, fatter than I've ever seen him and doing NONE of what he says I should... I despair!:rolleyes: Men, eh??

    As for the website, there is one, but it's being changed at the moment as (a) there has been a personnel change in the band and (b) all the pics of me are several stone ago and I want them changed!!! I'll post a couple of pics from last weekend's gig in the profile pics bit on here if you're curious... But no laughing!:p
