I found this googling. So don't blame me if it's wrong.

 2 cups = 1 pint 2 pints = 1 quart 3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon 48 teaspoons = 1 cup 16 tablespoons = 1 cup 12 tablespoons = 3/4 cup 10 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons = 2/3 cup 8 tablespoons = 1/2 cup 6 tablespoons = 3/8 cup 5 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon = 1/3 cup 4 tablespoons = 1/4 cup 2 tablespoons = 1/8 cup 2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons = 1/6 cup 1 tablespoon = 1/16 cup 1 US cup equals 237 ml. 2 cups is almost 1/2 a litre. (.03ml under)

We usually have a takeaway tonight but I am making a quorn chilli instead with lots of rice. I am just going to look up soured cream to see if I can have a bit with the spicy chilli. I am serving the rest of the family onion rings so I had better resistthem!

 03-12-2007, 08:35 AM #68 Member     Join Date: Feb 2001 Location: Yorkshire,England Posts: 83 Hi ladies I had a really good week but yet again at the weekend I let myself down. I had a takeaway on saturday night and then on sunday I was terrible. I still had a 2 pound loss but it would have been more I'm sure. I only have 4 pounds to go to reach my first mini goal so I really need to have a couple of good weeks.

You cheated a little and still lost that's fantastic...just keep it up next week you'll lose even more. Wish you well losing that 4 pounds. scottie-Hope your weigh in goes well. The weekend always gets me too, i'm so good all week then just crash. I have to keep reminding myself it's consistency..consistency...conistency.
 03-13-2007, 07:02 AM #71 Junior Member     Join Date: Mar 2007 Posts: 15 Hi folks, mind if i join you SW girls (any guys!) ?? I've done SW plan a few times on and off over the last few years. Last year was a fairly eventful year and as hard as I tried I just couldnt stick with it. Soo I am planning on starting it again on 23rd March. Which will give me a couple of weeks to get the right mind set to do this, this time - for the last time! lol Anyway no doubt you will all hear more from me soon, but i'll be lurking for a week or so just getting ready. Dolci

 03-13-2007, 05:40 PM #74 Senior Member     Join Date: Jan 2007 Location: North Yorkshire Posts: 129 Well done to Cherrycupcake and Antari on your losses - I'm determined to be a loser this week too Hello Dolci, I hope you start off in the right spirits! *hopes Scottie had some good news at the weigh in* I must say, the weekends get to me too. I was determined but then I went shopping when I was starving on Saturday night and bought a tub of Haagan Dazs - oops Anyway, it was delicious of course, but I did feel very guilty after eating half the tub! plus I then finished it off the next night. But I've had my splurge, and this week so far has been good. I found an Asda around the corner from the hotel I'm in this week (I'm yet another one in Wales this week!) and so have been buying healthy eating type sandwiches for my tea. Today has been so sunny, I really enjoyed a chicken and bacon salad for my lunch too! Slimming World has no chance when I'm away, but I do still watch the calories and things. Plus I actually got on my exercise bike again at the weekend instead of just looking at it as I have been doing over the last few weeks!
