Might save Everest to climb next year, is much likely to be schihalian (sp????) or Ben More or something else very straight forward.

Hi TQ - can't stop laughing at the image off you being dragged off to hospital in your cossie, it wouldn't be funny if it happened for real though.

You have come so far and it is difficult to lose weight when you are being such a social butterfly at all these conferences, with coffee and scones and biscuits and lunch all provided no doubt.

But we all know you are will yourself up once you get back into your own routine. Enjoy it, in moderation, while you can, in a few weeks your probably be craving a danish or something else terribly calorie and fat laden.

Am determined to reach my 1.5 stone weight loss next week - I am so determined I can almost taste it

Is dead sad really - have never felt like this before about losing weight - sure that is a good sign

Am still being very determined. I have been practising saying 14 stone 13 and a half all day, sounds good and I want the scales to say that at the very most that next week. Am probably physcing myself up for a big disappointment, but it is only 1.5lbs away. If I stick to plan I can do it and I want it so badly.

Tried to feed the boys a healthy meal tonight, pork with apple sauce, green beans and pasta. Steve couldn't get enough of it, Sean though just goes 'yuck' at whatever I put in front of him. Steve has been doing 'healthy eating' at school and wants to eat more fruit and veg - long may it last. Not sure what to do about Sean though, am sure he will eat when he gets hungry enough - sweets are banned until he eats a full dinner.

Have just had to put a hem on my work trousers as they don't sit as high on my waist anymore, think my waist is actually slighter lower than it was, or more correctly it is not as high as where the fat used to make me think it was.

Am off to have something for supper, not sure what as I had an enormous dinner, not quite in Ali's league yet but I am practising.

Hope everybody enjoyed their pancakes

Nope never noticed Toyah had lost a lot of weight, obviously I don't pay enough attention

Today has been good, another on plan day under my belt.

Have just planned my eating for tomorrow and struggled to get to 20 points, had to have a roll and crisps to bring the total up to 20, I am allowed 24.

I start counting my points from 6pm in the evening until 6pm the next day, means I had right through to tea time tomorrow to eat the roll and crisps, but with work getting in the way, figured I was as well eating it tonight and not missing out on it and going way too low on my points for the whole day.

Made a ratatouie (spelt all wrong) for tea was really nice, had with a lovely unhealthy full fat sausage - was delicious

Am going to wake up as equally motivated tomorrow, I can feel it in my bones.

You know if you eat too many carrots, you start to turn orange - think it takes a lot of carrots.

Do you think the same thing will ever happen with me due to all the blackcurrent juice I drink ??

Just a thought, while I go fill up - yet again !!!!

Am just chatting to myself here - but thats life

Tried on a smaller size shirt for some reason this morning and it fitted, was so pleased. People kept commenting at work that they like my shirt and I looked good. Then at lunchtime a colleague who has sussed that I am dieting asked how much I had lost now, had to admit to the 20lbs and then the compliments started flowing.

Everybody was telling me how well I had done and when I said I still wanted to lose another 20lbs, a couple of people asked if I could could really afford to do that and still be healthy - please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I weigh 211, 20lbs will just take me to 191lbs, 13stone 9lbs.

Suppose I should be pleased that when they look at me they don't just see the fat they see the person.

Was really nice to get all the compliments as well - am a real happy bunny

Hey Carol, can't have you talking to yourself now can we, some say it's the first sign of madness.... Good for you getting compliments at work. I have had a few too, it does make you feel good doesn't it. I have been out buying new clotes lately too, all in the next size down and they are very comfy, so that makes me feel good.
I have eaten so many veggies today I feel like I'm about to explode, and I reckon in a few more hours, before bed, I just might (if you get my drift).
We had sleet snow and ice here today, our roads are like ice rinks at the moment, so I've not done the nightly walk with the dogs. I might just have to do Tae-bo, really should if the truth be known.
Well that's it for now, Have a great day all.

Yet more compliments today - could get use to this. I told one woman my weight - I trust her as she is 'larger' too. She couldn't believe how heavy I am and said I must be heavy boned.

Am feeling very good, have worked hard at it this week, just need to keep it up

Hi girls,
It's been a spring like day here today, supposed to be much of the same tomorrow. I shall enjoy it while it lasts cos Monday is forcast for more snow, when will it end I cry!!!
I am making a concoction for dinner tonight, left over frozen beef slices with mushrooms and onions in and some very lovely gravy that is from UK. It smells delish bubbling away in the pan, I shall throw a baked potato and veggies on the plate too and hoipefull will stay way under points today as I must admit to be a rather big piggy yesterday, munching down on crisps and peanuts and a few large glasses of vino...oops! It has been a hard week work wise though so I felt it was well deserved. My hubby is on his way home tonight from being away (again) and it'll be nice as I wasn't expecting him until next Monday. He has even made some compliments to me lately too so that's been a big marale booster
Have a great weekend everyone, I'm off to eat.

I had lots of vino last night too Chris, I have all those exercise points saved which have hopefully covered it - probably not, I drank a lot. Think I inhaled a few glasses rather than drank them, either that or there was a hole in the bottom of my glass and the wine was draining out through it

Not sure whether to laugh or cry about the wine, I have worked so hard all week. Half of me says that I overdid it but then half of me says the reason I was so good all week was so I could have a blowout at the weekend - will need to ponder the thought. Think a bit of both is true. I do work hard during the week to eat / drink more at the weekend, but think last night I over did the blowout. Sad that even blowouts need to be in moderation.

The weather is a bit miserable here today, grey and overcast - no rain yet. Sean was supposed to be going to a birthday party this afternoon, but now he tells me he doesn't want to go - it is up to him in the long run.

Need to go shopping, am trying to do most of my food shopping at Lidls as their fruit and veg is so cheap and it is the closest supermarket to my house. But you can't get everything from there, so I will still need to pop into the co-op to get a few things, cat food, toiletries, etc. (my cat is 16.5 years old and has a delicate old ladies tummy so we need to watch what we feed her - not worth the mess and the smell if we give her the 'wrong' stuff - which is undoubtabely the cheap stuff - she never used to be like this so we figure it is old age) At least Lidls isn't full of goodies, bakery stuff, etc. Makes it easier if I only have to run to the other shops for a couple of things. I am getting quite focused.

Have planned out what we will be having for dinner this week, looks quite good, but makes me hungry - not good after all the food last night.

Today I am going to be an angel, have already drank 3 pints of water, dehydrated me never !!!!!!!!!!!!!

I feel sure you had enough exercise points saved Carol so you've probably not done too much harm Good luck for your weigh in later (is it still on a monday for you)?
I'm off to bed now, it's cold and windy out and my feet are freezing! I'll warm them up on Dave!
