Wow, nearly off the front page.

Hope you all had a good weekend.

I'm just about to go to my first weigh-in <gulp>. TOM too, so I'm sure I'll be disappointed with the loss even though I've been rigid in sticking to my points.

I'll let you know how I get on....

Jo- how did the weigh-in go? I'm down a lb today. Wish it were more.

Did Brandy go away yet?

Hi guys! Once again, my weight is stuck. Oh well. TOM and all, maybe I'll have a big woosh coming up. Congrats to all you losers - I'm happy for you, but also a little envious

Jo, good luck on the weigh in. Thinking thin for ya!

Not on vacation yet - still several weeks to go. I keep telling myself this is a GOOD thing as it won't hurt to lose a few more lbs. I'd like to make another trip home between now and then - my best friend has just had her second kid and if I don't get in there with the good gifts early, I could lose my favorite fake aunt status!

Well, as you can see from my sig, I only lost a pound.

I was really disappointed with that, I've stuck rigidly to the plan, been totally good and only lose a pound in the first week.

In the past I could always count on losing 4-7 pounds in the first week. Although the leader did say that with my liver not working properly that can slow my metabolism down, which might make it harder for me to lose.

I'm not giving up though. A pound is better than no pounds, or pounds gained.

Jo - Any loss is worth the effort. Just think, a lb is 4 sticks of butter (I don't know about the UK). If you look at it that way then it seems like alot.

As for me, I was binging today. Went off my foodplan today because of T.O.M. and didn't stop eating till 8pm. Good God! I thought I was going to explode. Now I feel physically sick. I've been following my food plan for exactly 3 weeks and this was my first, and hopefully, last slip.

Hey!

Where'd everybody go??????

I had a busy weekend......decorating the hallway, and moving the furniture round in Natty's room so we could put up a computer desk and give her our old pc (NOT connected to the internet....mean parents!!!)

Been sticking to the plan and am fairly confident of having actually lost a decent amount this week now TOM has passed.

Hope you're all ok.
Jo

Hi all! Another casualty of PMS/TOM here - no loss, totally stuck!

Jo, SMART parents! I'm always surprised when people give their kids net access with no supervision. Scary!!! And congrats on your lb! Fingers crossed for this week.

Raff, had my own bingy day (seriously, if I were telling tales - which I am not - I would own up and say Entemans might have been involved). Am now trying to pick up and move foward while pretending the whole thing never happened. Maybe denial can work in my favor for once.

Anyway, new day - new week. New start.

Yes, have to confess to having been swayed by Entemans more than once.....ooooh their Raspberry Danish...ooooh and the carrot cake..... I better stop, it's weigh-in tomorrow!!!

Brandy, she thinks we're awful for not letting her have access in her bedroom (but when she told me about one of her friends showing her a site called RateMyPoo...I seriously felt vindicated!!!) If they want or need the internet, then they use MY computer, in the dining room where I can see what they're doing.

I've known so many people who have given their kids unrestricted internet access....one of whom the girl ran away at 12 to meet up with a 25 year old she met in a chat room...and the parents still couldn't see where they'd gone wrong when social services were involved and the police confiscated their pc. Utter madness.

Right I really must go and do some housework. It's nearly 3:30pm and I've been threatening to do housework all day....

PMSing here too. Cravings like you wouldn't ba-leave! I was doing so well on my foodplan and now PMS had got me wanting all kinds of weird things.

Hi Ladies,

Sorry I've been MIA for so long (since 11 June to be exact!) ... Had a virus on the computer, and with everything else that's been going on, school hols, going on vacation, etc, it's taken us until now to get it sorted ... a computer guy came yesterday and spent 5 hours sorting out all the problems that we had with our pc! I've been having withdrawl symptons ... felt like my life-line had been cut!!

Anyway, it's great to see so many of you posting again ... for a long while it was only Brandy and myself ... we were getting a little lonely!

Can't possibly go back and read all the posts that I've missed in great detail ... it would take me until Chirstmas! ... Although I have had a quick scan through them ... Well done to anyone who's lost and welcome to any newbies

Just a quick update ... I've now been on vacation ... we ended up going to Thailand ... had a lovely relaxing break ... ate too much ... drank too much ... gained lbs!! Managed to be fairly sensible since I've been back though and got down to what I was before I went, so I'm pleased about that. I've got relatives arriving from the UK this afternoon ... my mom's two younger sisters and one of their sons, who's the same age as Tom (15) ... I get on really well with them so I know we're all going to have a great time ... of course it means that it's going to be about 3 weeks that I'll be 'off plan', but I will try to be sensible and go straight back to WW when they leave.

Probably going to be pretty busy of the next couple of weeks with the visitors, but I will post whenever I get chance.

It's good to be back ... I've missed you all!!

Glad you're back now Nichola.
We had a trojan last week on our computer and although we got rid of it, the pc hasn't been the same since.

Well, I lost another 2 pounds this week....although yet again I'm disappointed. Had my weigh-in been two days earlier I would have been 4lbs down....and I was really good in those two days so I've no idea why it went upwards again. Grrrrrrrr.

Right off to tidy the house, got two internet buddies coming over the weekend...one Saturday (who has become a family friend since we first met), and one Sunday (heading home to Scotland from a vacation in SW England).

Jo, congrats on the 2lbs loss, that's great so don't be disappointed that it wasn't more ... we all know how much our weight fluctuates throughout a week, so best just to weigh once a week (says she who has been on the scales everyday this week so far!!

Have fun with your friends this weekend ... I'm already exhausted with having my visitors here since Tuesday ... Can't seem to get them to go to bed until around 3am!!! ... having difficulty keeping up with them ... I can manage one late night a week but then I'm exhausted for the rest of week and need to recover!! Then the problem is that they're not getting up till really late and wonder what they're still tired ... they blame it on jetlag!!!

Oh well, I think I'll go back to bed for another hour to see if I feel any better!!

Welcome back Nichola!

Congrats on the loss Jo.

I'm still here working the South Beach diet. Getting tired of it, but every time I want to stop I ask myself what the alternative would be.

Talking I'm Back!!

Hi Girls,

Visitors went back to the UK last night and I've started back on my WW plan straight away. I've had a mammouth month ... nearly 2 weeks on hols and then 2 weeks with visitors eating out every single day!! Boy have I chucked away some food!! I thought I could eat, but seeing how much my visitors ate, I realise just why they are so much more overweight than I am ... I don't want to go there!! Weighed in today and have gained 3.5lbs since my last WW weigh in, so not quite as bad as I had expected ... PHEW!! Visitors have also gone home to start WW again and will be emailing me regularly so that we can all try to keep each other motivated.

Had an email from friends a few days ago who were hoping to visit us in October, but they are now unable to come and are planning a longer trip next summer instead ... PHEW (again!)!! ... My friend has such a fantastic body that, quite honestly, I was dreading them visiting looking the way I do, which I know is an awful, selfish thing to say! Anyway, I'm determined not to look this way when they eventually come ... I know it's a long way off, but I also know that by they time they do come, I'll be down to my goal ... and this time I really do mean it!! ... No more messing around!

Hope everyone else is doing ok

Speak again soon.

Nichola
