Thanks for the thread Joy.

Hi - i'm joining in this month! I've been 57.3kg (126lb) the last couple of days, and by the end of November i want to be in the 55's (<123lb).
My strategy is to cut down a lot on snacks/sugar/alcohol and consider calories more closely. I also joined a DietBet kickstarter challenge so that's motivating me for the diet overhaul for the next couple of weeks. Challenges are that i can't move! Had a knee op a few weeks ago that seems to have gone wrong, so i've been on crutches for a few weeks, and waiting in high anticipation on the report from last nights MRI to see what the prognosis is!

ange82much: So sorry about your knee! That's going to be a lot to deal with. A working plan is a good thing to have in that situation.

thanks Joy, yep it's been stopping me exercising for a few months already, so that's why i really need to ditch the lbs now (because i've recently put quite a lot on, and because it's one thing that's going to give me positive results whilst i can't work on any fitness goals) - what happened to your ankle?

ange82much: I just slipped off the sidewalk and twisted it. It will get better, but I'm surprised how long that it's taking. Walking is fine, but I'm hesitant to do anything (yoga, dance) that expects a full-range of motion.

Happy Friday Everyone.

Gardener Joy: I hope you knee is better.

All is going good for me so far in Nov. I've been following the WW plan and have been doing pretty good lately with tracking and staying within my points range. I have one more week before I retire and I am soooo excited about that.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Start weight - 196.8
Current weight - 195.6
Goal for Nov - 194.0

up 200g this morning - but it was 'date night' last night, and hubby and i went to the pub (the closest one is only 300 yards away so i hobbled round there on crutches!). I had a couple of glasses of wine and some chicken wings so the salt/alcohol combo is probably to blame, but all within The Plan so i'm fine with that.

Oooohhh Gettinfit, you're about to retire?!! What's your job been, and what are your plans now? No wonder you're excited - i've got a few more years probably, but super-looking forward to it myself!!
