    Right. In the last 2 months, I went on holiday, met a new man (too many nice dinners out), had too much fun and now it's almost Christmas and I seem to be out for dinner and or drinks every night for the last couple of weeks. I've completely fallen off the wagon and put on LOADS! No idea how much exactly as I daren't weigh myself (hangs head in shame) but clothes are starting to get "snug" and I dislike the way I look. I've fallen back into some old damaging habits (bingeing, crap food) but I'm not going to beat myself up about it. That won't help at all.

    I'm not going to set a target so much as to try to get back into a better and healthier mind set. I'm sure I won't be able to get back to where I was before things all went wrong, but I'll weight myself in January and work out how close to my last weight I think I can get. Stats on here will be wrong, but I want to keep a record of where I got to before and where I need to get to.

    I'm going to enjoy Christmas, I'm not going to go without but I'm not going to go completely mad either. New man is supportive of my trying to get healthier and I won't let the fact that he finds me attractive now stop me from wanting to change - I believe him when he says he'll still love me if I'm skinnier. Come the 4th January, I'll have no excuse not to make a new start, so bring on the challenge!

    Thanks for clearing it up Kes. I always get confused because I weigh in on sundays and others are declaring their weight losses the following day!

    Looking forward to this challenge!!! :)

    I wanna do this challenge.
    I usually weigh in on Sundays but dont wanna start on the 10th jan,thats too far away! So can I start on the 3rd of Jan?? And do my sunday weigh ins from then? I know its a day earlier than the challenge begins but I dont wanna change my weigh in day really. Hope thats ok,if not just let me know.
    I would like to lose 14lbs in 4 weeks.
    Good luck everyone
