Default 1lb. Down And Plenty More To Go! - 2007

to ~ One LB. Down and Plenty More To GO!

Old friends and New friends,

This thread is open to any and all ladies who have more than a "few" pounds to lose. We all know that if it's more than a "few" that it's gonna take sometime to get rid of it. And when you're in a certain place in your life for a while it's great to have some friends around that know exactly how you feel and know exactly what you're going through. Having support via family and friends is great and certainly a welcomed thought, but sometimes they just don't get it. We'll help encourage you through the down times, discourage you when the dieting alter ego wants to take over and then encourage you some more! Just jump in and make yourself at home. Let's try to live, love and laugh our "weigh" through this!


Well, it's the 2nd January here and I'm sure Tina won't mind me starting the 2007 thread.

I had a good day. Even after New Year's Eve at my mum's, having the most gorgeous roast chicken dinner with yorkshire pudding and sausages, and trifle for dessert, I was down a pound this morning from yesterday.

TOM arrived this morning also so hopefully that contributed partly to my shameful 11 lb gain over Christmas.

AND, not only that I did my exercise DVD for the first time since flipping Easter. Over the summer I did a fair bit of cycling and walking but since September all I've really done is a bit of halfhearted swimming. So, new Year, new start. I'm back doing my DVD three times a week like I did last year.

But, I tell you what - it's a heck of a lot easier than it was last January!

So, I have booked a holiday in Portugal next July for me and my little girl - and I am determined to be bikini-sexy by then. I've actually changed my goal from 140 to 133 - I may even try for 130, depending on how I look. I have a lot of belly flab and love handles still that I'd like to tone up.

We were doing a countup of all we've lost in 2006 from the old thread - I'll copy the list so we can add to it.

Robsia - 67 lbs
Tammy - 87 lbs
Linda - 45 lbs
Emily- 32 lbs
Cheryl - 25 lbs
Overall goal

"Look at these people who run marathons. What makes them different to you?...
They have the same bones and muscles as you, the same sinews and organs...
you can do anything you want to, be anything you want to.
The only thing stopping you is you!
