    Ok, back on SS with 23lb to go to FINAL goal of bmi 25, for first time ever in my adult life. I dont doubt this will be difficult, but as of last thursday, I had lost 4lb on my first week, so now only 19lb to go. I am not hopeful for wi this week on Thurs, but not sure how much of that is my natural pessimism! Would be chuffed with 2lb, and absolutely over the moon with 3 but that isnt going to happen. Ideally I would like to be at goal before my hols on 20th Sep, but I am realistic about that not being realistic as I am a slow loser. I intend coming on here when I feel tempted to pass the time on this thread, and hopefully read any advice any of you inspirational people may have, and maybe offer my own if possible. If I can get to goal, I may still have a chance to get my legs out before the end of the summer! (first time since I was about 5!!)

    Good luck everyone!:D

    Wishing you lots of luck. I'm hoping to get to my goal by October and finish properly this time by working up the plans. I have stopped so many times now through going on holiday or to a special event. I want to get to the end and learn how to maintain properly.

    Good luck Kikuka! And your mention of the 'Final Countdown' reminded me of this, which might give you a laugh :D

    Good luck everyone, and Lunar Jim that is fab! I will be giggling all day.

    Guzzling water and crossing everything for a good loss for us all. Roll on moving up the plans!

    Good luck with your countdown. I'm sure you'll be able to lose 19lbs by your holiday. :)

    Another SS day down. Still feeling bloated from my unexpected visit from Aunt Ethel (I only ever get these visits when on SS, I am on the pill) but I know it will pass. Weigh in tomorrow and horror! I have run out of porridge packs! I will have to have a shake for dinner instead - never mind. If I can get 2lb off I will be 11st dead which will be great - and then I can look forward to seeing the 10s! I would LOVE to be in the 9s by my hols, but I dont really expect that to happen but thats ok. Strange things are being revealed. Sometimes I look down and think I have grafted my head onto a different body!

    Another 3 lb down yesterday! So pleased, 7 lb in 2 weeks so close to target is more than I thought. It is really encouraging to know CD still works so well even at a late stage in the journey. Would be well chuffed with another 2 next week. How is everyone else doing?
    Must try and update my ticker.

    It was my lovely William, but when we had to move a few years ago, the place we moved to doesnt allow pets. It was heartbreaking for him to go but a lovely woman from my work took him on and he has a new lease of life playing in her huge garden, and has now got another cat chum so he has landed on his feet and is very happy. He is 19 now and going strong, so I dont feel as guilty.

    Aww he's beautiful. My first ever cat Ember was a black cat. She was a raggedy old flea bitten stray with hair missing all around her neck! But very beautiful too :)

    Sorry to hear you had to give him up, but he sounds very well looked after and a ripe old age!

    Still going strong but had to go for a fourth pack yesterday as I struggled so much. Could have been worse I suppose. Not lost anything so far this week but I am just trying to convince myself it is water retention and hoping something will show by Thursday. Next goal is to have only a stone left to lose, which I can achieve if I lose 2lb more

    Still no loss on the scales this week and weigh in in 2 days. I might have to accept a STS week this week! Never mind. Just have to keep going and pray for a little whoosh before weigh day! Really wanted that 2lb to take me to a stone from goal though...

    I havent been around much this week as I have been laid low with flu which has played havoc with my willpower. Have flitted between ss+ and 810ish due to feeling so ill. I am going back to work, and weigh in tomorrow so hopefully this means I will hav the gumption to get my SS going again - I dont think I have gained but not sure I will have lost either. Oh well, find out at 8:30 in the morning. If I have lost some, that means I can say I have less than a stone to go to a healthy weight. Wow

    Horrors! STS this week - I just KNEW it when i got up this morning.
    I suppose it is sue to not being very well, have been really tired and achy. Oh well, all i can do is keep going and hope it comes off next week. Really want the last stone off. Am having fights with OH and friends over losing more, they say they are worried about me, and it is daft, I am still way over the healthy range for my height, clearly have fat on me, and only want to get to BMI25 and no further so I dont see that it is a casue for concern. I think maybe because my waist is small that is all they see, plus you dress to emphasise your best bits. Might start wearing tight jeans to convince them it is all still there!
