I've been AWOL from the forum since the end of October; I had a weigh in November 7 before having *ahem* a few weeks off.
I walked into the meeting on Friday and yikes! Everything was different: the desks had been changed around, the scales were in a different place, AND there was a new plan. Well. I didn't have time to stay after the meeting to hear all the details, but the discussion here has been very enlightening. Thanks to everyone who's taken the time and trouble to put it all down in writing.
I'm back, with enthusiasm!
