    Hey guys!

    Okay, so how was everyone's first week? Hope people have been on track! (A lot better than me anyway!)

    Weigh in - Post your losses this week. Hope you all did brilliant :) I'll leave slimmer of the week stuff to caroline!

    Challenges - How did you all do on your challenges you set yourselves?

    Any ideas for a topic of discussion for this week? x

    Woohoo I was sitting there pressing refresh

    Unforunately it's all dismal on my end
    - didn't manage to complete my challenge...
    - haven't been weighing because I've been poorly and eating terribly!

    but, i'm still here to give support to everyone else! :):):)
    Hope everyone's week has been good, looking forward to hearing completed challenges and losses :)

    When you say discussion could i ask about low-calorie desserts? or anything else anyone wants to talk about

    Ah my weeks been pretty terrible too! Ate out a lot as it was my birthday. Lots of yummy food for Eid too. Managed an STS this week (184.4)! Very surprised I didn't gain!

    Hope you're feeling better soon hun!

    Not too sure about desserts myself. Not really got a sweet tooth! Actually meringues are surprisingly low in calories. Sure you could do something with that you know.

    Ooh yes, acutally the other did I made lazy practically calorie free meringues

    Put 2 table spoons of sweetner in a cup, literally drop in egg white until it forms a sort of paste then put in the microwave and they turn into mergineus! sp clearly


    Where did you go for your birthday??

    I am sorry you didn't have such a good week thatlittlebit, hopefully you will have a much better week next week, take care.

    I didn't do too bad this week, i LOST 1lb when i weighed earlier to my delight. I am trying to get back on track, i stayed within my calories every day apart from Monday.

    Going to attempt to make low calorie meals and freeze them to help with portion control, when i make a recipe for 4 i will freeze 3 portions, as i eat seperately from my hubby as he eats most unhealthily. Will see how it goes just ordered 50 foil dishes from ebay for 4.99 to help with my freezing campaign.

    I have had a better week, not quite hit my exercise goals but still lost 1 lb, so quite pleased.
    Hope everyone else has had a good week!

    Seems like we need lots of hugs on here tonight :)

    Desserts - i have a counting calorie blog, i have posted the links for the labels Desserts and Puddings, hope this helps.

    Dawns Calorie Counted Recipes: Dessert
    Dawns Calorie Counted Recipes: Puddings

    One Dessert which is nice, is a meringue nest, covered in fresh fruit topped with any flavour low fat yoghurt, you get the sweet crispiness of meringue, healthy fruit and the creaminess of the yoghurt.

    I have invested in a vacuum food sealer, food is meant to last 5 times longer than a normal fridge. At the min busy sealing everything, so will see if it saves money!!

    That's great Bostik!! I did c25k. When I first started it running 60 secs was a huge challenge. It makes you progress at a manageable level though, so you will b fine!

    Seems this week isn't that great for many people! Hopefully this coming week will be better! Anyone setting themselves a challenge??

    I'm challenging myself to be within my calories every day this week! Nice easy one to get me back on track!

    Good evening slimmers! Well I started the week full of enthusiasm and visions of my slender self next summer in a bikini looking hot and not too wobbly!! But I somehow lost my way during the week : ( I'm not going to make excuses but will happily fill u all in on the reasons. I vowed to drink more water, mm I failed miserably but am planning to keep a tally chart next week and try harder with that. I only managed my fitness DVD twice but to be honest I was in agony for 2 days after doing it and couldn't move. But will go for 3 times next week now I'm getting used to it. Also I am on a new medication to prevent migraines and they are known for increasing appetite and my god!! ..... They do!! I am struggling to curb that insatiable hunger but aiming to snack on low cal items. So I stayed the same this week. Still 196 lb but I am going all out for a 3pm loss this week. Good luck everyone'

    I lost a pound, but Id been extra good so expected a bit better to be honest :( never mind.
    My challenge was to drink 8 glasses of water every day, and I'm pleased to say I stuck to it :)

    Morning guys, I'm soooo sorry about last night! This week on school placement has knackered me out and I TOTALLY forgot about doing the thread! I'm sowwy :( I've gone through and updated everyone's losses on my trusty spreadsheet, I'll message the others for their losses too.

    http://www.minimins.com/calorie-counting/243510-online-meeting-new-name-voting-poll.html

    There's the poll to vote for our new name, it ends today and then the one with the highest votes is what we'll be called!
