Sadly, the maintain did not transpire... I put a pound on. I know it's not a huge issue considering Christmas and New year but I really didn't want to go backwards on the half stone OR move back into 12st. However, 12st on the dot it'll have to be until next week.

Where did I see the link to the SBMI calculator, was it the general weight loss thread? Anyway, interestingly, that said my target to get to 10 and half st was too ambitious and may trigger the start of yo yo dieting. At that weight, on the traditional bmi calculator I think it's borderline overweight from memory.

I still appear to be a member of my previous SW group's FB page. They have a couple of girls who are very keen on posting pictures of every meal they eat. They are not very good photographers which is OK but one of them seems to have the most peculiar food combinations. This morning she has posted last night's dinner - brussels sprouts covered with baked beans. :sprout: :sprout:

Or is just me that thinks that's a bit odd?

I think once you join SW you start eating all kinds of odd concoctions :lol: :lol: .

I have to say that I am heartily sick of people posting pictures of meals on my group FB page. People feel that it helps keep them on the straight and narrow if they post each day and since Christmas it's got stupid. Not one person has posted pictures of anything I'd want to eat yet.

Well done PP! Hope your results are good Grassy!

A miserable 0.5lb off this morning after religiously following plan all week :rolleyes: . Probably because I've been at work and exercise has been minimal. Oh well, onwards and hopefully downwards, still want to reach my interim target by my birthday ... that's 9lb in 5 weeks. I can only hope ... ;)

That's good Alison.. \they say that 0.5-1kg loss a week is the ideal for long term success. Tis is the aim for gaining weight too. Look at your loss as a whole. Your rocking it xx

Sorry but I really can't wrap my head around Bad food and Sins, I'm probably way off the mark. In my book no food is bad - perhaps stupid but never bad. Sin means you have to be religious = which I'm not.

I honestly stick to the well rehearsed French method. Your waist band. Too tight eat less. Unless you are seriously overweight of course in which case try a smaller waistband until it fits then go from there.

Hope you all achieve your dream waist sizes though, by whatever means but for goodness sakes don't beat yourselves up about it.

Absolutely, no food is bad Rats. Everything in moderation. But when you've not been moderate with everything for the last 32 years and then realise a little bit needs to shift, some people need more of a structure than just eating less. Well, I evidently do anyway :lol:

I couldn't eat less, I'd be bloody miserable! So I just eat differently. And the structure of SW seems to fit in with how I eat generally, just a few tweaks.

I've never tried to lose weight though before so this is quite new to me and I'm not 100% sold yet! It's generally working though for now :D

3lbs off this week which I'm really happy with. I was hoping for 2, 3 at a push.

This week has a couple of risky obstacles (supplier dinners, off site meetings) but as long as I plan well, I should be fine.

9lbs in total, 5 more til 1 stone, 8 more til 10% of body weight :tu:

Well done PP and EM :tu:

I've recently got myself one of these multi cooker pressure cooker things mainly because I was thinking of buying a pressure cooker since last summer when I decided I eat enough beans to warrent buying them dried or more to the point I could not warrent the cost of all the tins of prepared beans.
So far I've made a couple of batches of soup which was gereat yesterday when I realised I had no soup in the freezer to take for my packed lunch so knocked up a batch of root veg with some soup mix while I got ready for work. Problem solved.
Tonights dinner is made in there :chef: 'salmon n leeks' almost Mary Berry's recipe but not quite and only 2 portions of it. One for tonight and one for the freezer.

weight loss in 8 weeks is 1st and 3lbs not bad with all the celebrations in that period.
I do however think I've not lost anything in fact it may well be bad news when I get on the scales this week as it was a consolling session Saturday at my friends house. Lots of Alcohol. I cooked chinese :chef: rather than a take away and I avoided the chocolate. However caved at a (small) bowl of ice cream :spank: . But oh the :cocktail: :cocktail: .

PP - :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: ... I was so envious of your dinner this week which had cauliflower cheese and sausages. If you can lose 2lb on that I'll have some too! :chops: :chops:

Should be my weigh day tomorrow but might go on Saturday instead - depends if I can keep awake after night shift or not. Have stuck to the rules mostly this week but don't feel as though the results will be stunning :rolleyes: .

Well done PP!!

A miserable half pound off for me this week which I don't think should even be counted :lol: I felt like I'd done ok but looking back through the food diary last night, I'd averaged 20 syns a day because of eating out last Saturday :o still, no matter, it's got to be doing me good!

Good luck for the week ahead everyone, I'm going to hopefully have no days where I go over the 15 this week. I've nothing on this week which might scupper that plan so theres no reason why not.

Half a pound is half a pound! It all adds up :hug: :hug: .

I didn't go this week, had to choose between catching up with sleep or queuing in a church hall .. and guess which won :lol:. I've been weighing at home and although I stuck to plan was a bit disappointed as I thought I had gained - but when I looked in my book think I lost about a pound so felt happier. Very sedentary at work, no work this week so it should be better. Even if we don't lose much, SW does make us think about what we're eating!

Sleep should always win EM :lol: Well done on the 1lb.

I went for breakfast this morning at a local hotel and considering it was unlimited, I was very reserved and stuck only to free foods other than a veggie sausage and a hash brown and I added some syns for oil which may have been used on the griddle.
OH was floating the idea of pizza tonight too and I didn't give in despite fancying pizza for the last week. The resolve is strong!!! For today ;) :lol:

Finishing today on 14.5 syns and yesterday on 13 is remarkable for a weekend :lol: . Will need some lower syn days than that though if I plan on getting anywhere near the 1st lost mark any time soon.

I did quite a big shop in Sainsburys yesterday and as I packed the goods away the lady at the till said, 'Do you go to Slimming World on Friday mornings?' :o .
I recognised her then as a target member .. luckily my shopping was quite healthy but I did feel as though I was under scrutiny! (Note to self .... if I buy a cream bun, don't go to her till!!)

I went early yesterday morning to be weighed and had lost half a stupid bloody pound again. I'd stuck to it really well too, I dont know why it doesn't seem to work so well for me. I must eat too much. Anyway, I didn't dwell as I was waiting for news on my grandad so in the grand scheme, it's not that important.

I shall see what the week brings.

It may only be half a lb, but you are still losing, and in the grand scheme of things you don’t have that much weight to lose so it’s bound to come off in smaller chunks if you get my drift.

My sister is known as half pound Polly at her group, she lost all her weight, just less than two stones in half lbs, but four years later she is still in her target range.

You are having a difficult time, so just keep to plan as much as you can............tortoises make the finish line. :hug: :hug:

Going the right way em! As BB says, tortoises win the race!

I was 1.5lb down this week - but that was over 2 weeks as I didn't go last week. Had hoped for more but openly admit that things not on the plan keep creeping in. Onwards and downwards :rolleyes: ...

Well done for the loss EM and we'll done for still going to be weighed PP, I think that's the hardest bit sometimes when you think there's no point because of what you've eaten all week!

I felt like that this morning before i went as I've not followed the plan all week but somehow lost 1.5lb?! Puzzling when i only lost .5 in the 2 weeks before whilat on the plan!

Never mind, I'm happy and will get back on it this week... hopefully!

Good luck all!

I went this week ready to go onto the naughty step ... and had lost 1lb! I therefore highly recommend a weekly diet which includes macaroni cheese, white toast, sausage and egg McMuffin and Toffee Crisps :lol: :lol: . I don't think I'll hit my birthday target but at least I'm going in the right direction - through luck more than judgement.

Re: I'VE JOINED SLIMMING WORLD!

One week on ... definitely won't make the target for my birthday! 1lb on today. Not surprised ... the week included macaroni cheese and a lot of bread amongst other things. It's comfort food weather and I'm sick to death of the things I'm allowed ... :rolleyes: .

Has anyone tried the oat pancakes/waffles made with oats, Mullerlight and an egg? I intend to have a try sometime this week, not necessarily on pancake day and I will probably use quark rather than Mullerlight. They will either be edible .. or not.

I'd lost half a pound which I guess is better than nothing.. As I've said before I'm not great at following the plan when it's so cold either. Being on blood thinners doesn't help.

I doubt very much that tomorrow's weigh in will be worth the almighty faff that it is to get up, ready, Leo fed and ready and out to the group by 8:30. However, I will go along nonetheless.

I have eaten badly most of the week due to feeling rotten and grandads funeral. Actually, I might just trawl back and see how bad it actually was. Perhaps not as bad as I think.

Well done PP.

EM, a pound isn't so bad especially if you've had an enjoyable week of comfort food.

I'm tempted by the pancakes but I'll be annoyed if they're rubbish... I had a go at the overnight oats and was really unimpressed.

I'm hoping that I do a trip to the butchers tomorrow and that gives me some inspiration.

Uh oh... I didn't go. Mum wasn't going (busy looking after grandma), friend wasn't going (eaten like a pig all week and couldn't face it) so when Leo woke me at 7:45 and I had 45 mins to go through the earlier mentioned faff and get us to group AND the weather was wet, windy and miserable, I jibbed out.

I weighed myself at home and it showed a half pound loss. Scales may not be exactly the same as group but hey can't be so far out so I must be roughly the same.

I shall face the wrath next week!

Know just how you feel em - life's too short sometimes!

I suspect that the oat pancakes won't be wonderful but may still give them a try. Tomorrow will be proper pancakes or waffles though. GD will be here and we have been watching the Peppa Pig episode where they make pancakes so I promised we would. I hope mine doesn't stick to the ceiling like Daddy Pig's. At school our HS teacher managed to do that too - to the delight of the class :lol: .

Did you try the pancakes EM? I had proper ones too on Tuesday. OH doesn't really like them and so mum came round (who loves them) and we sat and troughed them and chatted :tu:

I went back yesterday and had lost 2lb :?: despite kfc in the week and chippy tea on Friday :oops: I shalln't complain.

Half a pound til the 1 stone award. I set out hoping to lose 2 stone in a quickish time but now I'm almost at 1 stone, I'm glad I've done it slower (11 weeks so far). More chance of it staying off I suppose.

Good luck for the week all.

I lost nearly 3/4 stone being ill last month, but unfortunately I’ve put most of it straight back on again. So...salad, salad, and more salad...which fortunately I love.))
