Well it seems things are really slowing down now which is frustrating lol Lost 2lbs this week, a great loss but as always we aim for the stone a month which I'm no longer achieving. Mind you, I've barely moved this week, not been active at all and only left the house once so I think that's definitely to blame as its all that's different from previous weeks.

So I hit 80lbs total off this week, 60lbs of that since restarting LT end of August. If I can make the effort and be active this week maybe, just maybe, I can clinch 6 stone off next week, fingers x-ed.

I note that I have just 19.4lbs til I hit normal bmi for my height... can't believe I'm that close to no longer being overweight! Still want to lose a further stone after that but compared to how much I had to lose when I started this journey I have to admit I'm very proud of myself for making it this far :) I have nobody around me in real life supporting and encouraging me so am blatantly blowing my own trumpet, sorry! Haha =p

Good luck everyone, may the scales be kind to you all this week x

Thanks Su! I'm staying on til I get to goal and am hoping that if I lose a few pounds refeeding it'll give me a bit of wriggle room as I settle into maintenance. The problem with me is I'm very sedentary so I really need to work on that now I'm getting close to finishing and hopefully it'll make the difference x

Thanks Pudge, yeah its not been easy thats for sure, I've had a lot of things going on this past year since I joined and made many attempts to start and restart, never making it past week 8. My emotions usually win over the long term and when I crack its hard for me to reign it in. However this time I have a trip to USA booked to visit a special friend and I swear that even though I've slipped up a few times this time through, having that trip waiting on me is absolutely what has kept me from losing sight of my end goal - I want to be the best *me* I can be when I visit my best friend overseas whom I've spent every day with for nearly 3 years but never met in person and if I'm at goal I know I can go over there and just let my hair down and have some well deserved fun without my lifelong obsession about how fat I look. In fact, to be honest, there's never been a time in my life when I've not thought I was fat so this time I'm really going to appreciate being healthy and *normal* and use that energy saved from worrying to just enjoy myself :)

Hi Cookeh
You've done fantastic. I read all your posts over Christmas and you kept me on the straight and narrow, even though I was on a kind of a refeed. It was your strength of will that I really admired particularly on Christmas day and I know you had 1 chocolate blip, but you managed to get straight back on the wagon and remain positive. I had a chocolate blow out that lasted for 3 days! But thanks to your and other people's posts, I 'm on day 3 again ( I know it's only day 3, but that's pretty significant for me, as I thought I had lost it completely).

Aww thank you so much for the really supportive comments, I was quite touched by their sincerity.

I'm struggling at the mo as my pharmacy are all out of Flapjacks and the be yu bars, as Yummy as they are, aren't big or satisfying enough so am very hungry. I researched some protein bars. Cals similar to Flapjacks, high protein and carb similar to the shakes. It's not ideal, I hate this, but I need my bar to eat, it gets me through the worst of the hunger so trying to make do til end of next week when the out of date Flapjacks get replaced with new ones. Yay! It'll be interesting to see my loss on Monday - a day late as driving to Scotland to visit my newly engaged niece for the weekend. She starts Exante on Sunday so hoping we'll keep each other on straight and narrow when the kids are stuffing their faces lol

If I can be ultra good Mebbe ill be rewarded with a tad extra loss Monday and clinch the 6 stone off! I've had a week from hell, that'd cheer me up no end hehe xx

Well done cookeh you are amazing huni!! It must have been so hard to keep strong with no support around you (except minimins) of course. It just proves also having a goal to work towards really does help, knowing that you had a trip booked has obviously really kept you focused. I hope you have a fantastic time I think I will book a trip too! :)
