Love the recipe, Raff, although I think I'll do it with Splenda instead of sugar.

Well, I PASSED. Got a 2:1, which is between 60 and 69% overall, which is what I needed to be able to find work, after my postgrad course. My average worked out to 64%, so I was very happy. Off out for a meal with Alan to celebrate now.

Oooh and I can put letters after my name now

Well done Jo! ... You've made us all very proud!

Raff, love the recipe too ... but like Jo I'll be trying to see if it works with a sugar substitute, as I can't have sugar on the Gi plan.

Well, the problems at home are slowly but surely getting sorted thank goodness. And my Gi plan seems to be going quite well ... or at least I think it is ... I'll let you know when I weigh-in again!!LOL

Thanks guys.

Have to admit I had to google to find what LLB stands for (the Hons bit is because it's an Honours degree).

The degree of Bachelor of Laws is the principal academic degree in law in most common law countries. It is abbreviated LL.B. - LL. is abbreviation for the plural legum (of laws); thus LL.B. stands for Legum Baccalaureus in Latin. In the United States it is sometimes called "Bachelor of Legal Letters" to account for the double L.

Awww Brandy, the tiredness and the nausea are the worst, but when you get to the second trimester you'll feel so much better.

Brandy, hang in there ... it will get better soon ... honest!!

Weighed-in this morning and I'm down another 2lbs!! This is the best diet plan that I've ever tried ... haven't felt hungry, and I don't feel like I'm "on a diet" ... Can't be bad!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Thanks Jo and Nic, everyone keeps telling me it will get better soon and I'm REALLY COUNTING on that being true. So I'm holding y'all to it!

Nic, congrats on your weight loss and on finding a great plan!

I'm going to be out of town for a big so if you don't hear from me, I haven't run away to join the circus or anything

So sleepy. I actually had to pull over on the way into work and have a 10 minute nap. Ugh. Only 5 more days until I can have a decent night's sleep without worrying about things that need to be done. By the end of the weekend, my community event that I'm helping plan will be done and I can relax!

CONGRATULATIONS JO!!!

Nichola- Whoo Hoo another 2 pounds- GOOD FOR YOU!!!!! I think finding the right eating plan makes all the difference in the world.

Brandy, Jo is right, the second trimester is wonderful. The nausea goes away and you have tons of energy and just feel great in general!!

Raff- hope all is well with you and your Mom.

Lorraine- Hope all went well with you community event and you can finially get some rest!!

We just got back from renting a cabin on a lake with our kids and 3 of my nieces and nephews...had a wonderful time but I am exhausted. Didn't sleep well because my mind kept wandering to all those horror movies we have all watched...you know, quiet, peaceful cabin by the lake, unsuspecting people enjoying themselves, unknown maniac lurking in the woods. Yeah, I know they are movies but my imagination just WOULD not stop....

Now it is back to business. The kids start school in less than 2 weeks and I am having a trip to the mall today with Josh and his girlfriend, heaven help me, two 16 year olds in the mall with a visa card...I may still be there this time tomorrow!!!!

Everyone have a great day!!!

Hi all!

Quick update from me - went to the doc on Monday, heard the heartbeat. Sounds like a washing machine. We're moving in about three weeks and have SO MUCH to do, if you don't hear from me - that's why.

Hi, new here, I am 59 years old and have 13 grandchildren. I have lost 45 pounds on WW and have about 25 to go. Have been struggling with the last pounds for months now. Been looking for a good support group. May I join you?

Welcome Sparklerose! You can jump in any time.

I heard that some people on WW alternate their days and points when they find the weight isn't coming off quickly.

Hope this helps.

Take care,
Raffaella

Hi Sparklerose, welcome to our group!

Brandy, good luck with the move, but try and rest as much as possible (and no lifting heavy boxes!!! )

I'm heading off to Scotland tomorrow for Dom's ice hockey camp. His health is hanging in there so he should make it through the week....the Monday we come back he has an appointment with the specialist so at least we have that to fall back on. I've not packed, got nothing organised, and got to go to the vets today as one of my rabbits has a sore on his back. Tomorrow lunchtime Alan will come home from work, walk in and say 'right lets go....you'd better not have forgotten anything' What I'd like to know is who made me the organiser????? I hate being expected to sort everything, pack everything and get the grief if I forget something.

Anyway, it's unlikely I'll be back online until I get back, so take care, and see you all after 6th Aug.

Love
Jo

P.S Almost forgot, gained 2.5 this week
