    Hey guys,

    Don't think that I've abandoned you guys just because I'm not doing SW any more!

    I'm just letting you know what I'm up to since my repeated failure on the SW plan.

    Well, for a while, I just ate whatever the hell I wanted - then regretted it. Then I opted for calorie counting, which wasn't too bad. But last night, I found myself at a Weight Watchers class - and I have to admit guys...I liked the plan.

    So I'm starting on that today... (please don't be mad!)

    But I still wanna hang out with you amazing SWers!!!

    So, yeah, just a mini update for those of you who haven't forgotten me just yet :)

    Carthago xx

    Thanks so much! I sincerely hope so :)

    "Carthago delenda est" is Latin for "Carthage must be destroyed." I'm a Classics student and my favourite topic last year was the Punic wars - wars between Carthage (in modern day Tunisia) and Rome in the 3rd and 2nd centuries BC.

    After the first two wars which Rome won, a Roman politician called Cato the Elder kept calling for Carthage to be destroyed - Carthago delenda est. He could have been giving a speech on agriculture, but somehow he'd weave Carthago delenda est into his speeches.

    I found this hilarious (though almost anything can seem funny to me!) and so my username was born :)

    Sorry for the mini ancient history essay!

    P.S. Carthage was destroyed in the end :(

    Well I never! Latin was never my strong point and I assumed it was spanish lol. You certainly do learn something new everyday on here :D.

    Re WW - I did it for four months last year and I dropped 3 stone. It really does work. Couldn't face counting points again this time hence SW. Best of luck! X

    Oh wow! 3 stone in four months is phenomenal! If I do that, I'd be over the moon! I was giving myself til the end of April to lose three stone.

    Ooooh, can't wait for WI next week now!

    Thanks so much for the kind wishes and encouragement! And well done on your weight loss so far :)
