Thank you all..... I could NOT have done this without your words and stories and inspiration.

This Thread is a challenge for the 1st person to lose 5 lbs. You post a starting weight and the 1st one to lose those 5 lbs WINS and starts a new thread. This is open to any Woman or Man, Boy or Girl :) You can start at any time.

So We are all at the starting gate and the Gates open....... (trying to tie it in with the Derby this weekend)

Had a bad week this week - on Monday my eldest daughter made an apple crumble at school. I bought some squirty cream to go with it and I swear I was only going to have a small piece. But then neither of my children really liked it so I ended up eating the lot over two days, AND all the squirty cream.

So, my weight went up a couple of pounds and I've spent all week just getting it back down again. But at least it is down now.

Gosh I thank you all... but YOU all have been doing great!! I just have so much more to lose... I like seeing how much weight you all lose in a few weeks being so much closer to your goal. It gives me a great insight for the future (about 6+months down the road) :) and Looking at all your goals... There will be alot of NEW Decades conquered and attained.. YEAH!

HAPPY SATURDAY unless you are now waking up to SUNDAY :) LOVE LOVE LOVE the internationalism of this forum!
