I'VE JOINED SLIMMING WORLD!

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

Oh PP you should .... they have been even harder to find round here than the place I went to this morning! Have you had one? They are well worth any stupid syns :chops: :chops:. I've got a week and a half to work it off (and a weekend away with meals out coming up during that time as well :( ).

Thank you BB :). It was all I could do not to eat three - but I am making myself stick to one a day. I shall bear you in mind if I go off them :lol: :lol: .

OK - progress report :?
I won't bore you with week-by-week results, BUT things have changed a little.
MUM - She's added 5 lbs to her original target, as she feels that may be more achievable.
MOI - as I've been up & down for so long, my consultant suggested temporarily changing my target to what I weigh about now - this should help take the pressure off a bit and may help me to start losing again. So, for now, at least, I am a Target Member! Still want my original target tho, which is 18 lbs away.
Sigh!

Yay! How much did you lose altogether Grassy? I started off with an interim target and when I get there I will see how I feel. If I had put a more ambitious target I know I would never have got there but this feels more do-able.

Hope you can ease into the target member thing easily ... a little break is a good thing sometimes. Not looking forward to this week, I have been away for the weekend and had chips and wine and ice cream and other such things :chops: .

Congratulations Grassy!

I set an interim target of 3 stone when I went back last week. Even that feels like an uphill struggle at the minute. I've planned this week meticulously, including syns so we will see. I get so annoyed with myself though because I know SW works....I lost just over 5 stone before having DD.

My group has virtually folded. :x I know I haven't been going since the knee op but about a year ago the leader left and a very nice girl took over. 6 months later she'd had enough and became an air hostess. :shock: :shock: They have had 4 different leaders since then, none have been very good apparently and the group has really dwindled. Am toying with going back but I really need someone who will motivate me. :?

Good luck missmancs! You should lose a nice lot during your first week to give you a bit of a boost. I can't be doing with over-planning. I just eat mostly free foods on ordinary days and if I want an ice cream or other treat on special days then I have it even if it sets me back. That's why it's taking me ages to reach target but I am lighter than I was in February which is what matters! My interim target was 3 stone (the weight i always said I would never go above :oops: :oops: ).

Oh PP, that's a shame. Isn't there another you can go to? There are loads round here, on busy weeks I just go to the group which is open at a convenient time for me but don't usually stay after being weighed. Some seem quite nice and I think would be nice to stay to. I think it really helps if you have a nice group and find you quite look forward to the social aspect as you get to know the regulars. We had a guy standing in one week who wasn't my cup of tea at all, I was glad he wasn't my first experience of SW :).

That's great Grassy!! I think it was a good suggestion to stay at target (which is hard enough!) for a while and then go for round 2. It does get a bit monotonous after a while and now you'll be able to advise all the newer people! I had an annual medical today which was all ok but spurred me on a bit as the results were the best for 4 years and I would like them to be amazing next year!

4st 1.5 lbs would mean a whole new wardrobe!

Going in stages makes way more sense anyway. A to Z has a lot in between if that makes sense

Oh bad luck Grassy :hug: :hug:, I think in warm weather we all eat less but are tempted by things like ice cream!

I am just about keeping even through a few weeks of being away and having a few treats, all in all about 2lb on which isn't too bad. I thought I was back on track but someone at work treated us all to Costco pizza and cake today 8-) . Very calorific and unhealthy .. I doubt I shall wear it off by Wednesday :rolleyes:. I could always go back to juicing for a few days, that'd do it ... :idea:

We had 2 portions of beef & veg (lean beef skirt & loads of veg), casserole for dinner 2day. We had MORE veg with it (free) AND boiled rice (also free), PLUS I had fruit for afters.
Yum :chops:

Edited to add: Sis didn't want casserole, so she got egg-fried rice instead.

I do not want to preach. But....I found this whole slimming thing destroyed me. So I gave it up. I then went from an appetite of a pig, through an appetite like a door mouse, then out the other side. I can't do the dieting thing anymore. Food is there to be worshipped, cherished, not feared. If we put on a few pounds, well we can shed them. Easy really. What goes in has to come out.
And on that note I need toast!
