Waitrose Diet tonic with Angostura and/or a squeeze of lime

Or diet ginger beer with again a good shot of lime juice

I drink loads of water, but sometimes I want something that tastes interesting.

Well done! :)

After I lost weight, about 5 stone/30Kg I was working on the car and carrying the trolley jack down the garden. As I passed the bathroom scales on the patio (I had been weighing some big parcels for posting!!) I decided to weigh myself and the jack. The jack weighed 28 Kg and I just made it down the garden before I could carry it no further!! I don't know how I ever managed to walk around construction sites and up ladders!!

I feel much slimmer, L said he can see a difference, my tummy has gone down and I'm not so big on the hips either :o and my clothing is looser too :bounce: so I think I've toned up by not having the alcohol, if that makes sense :?

A 1.5lb loss for me this week, and slimmer of the week.

Not bad as we had two meals out, one, an Italian meal I mamanged to stay within the plan, the other was at a friends house and completely naughty food, but boy I did enjoy what I had but tried to be as careful as possible.

Onwards and downwards - I got a swimming costume out today that I bought about three years ago and hoped to diet to fit. Well I don't know if it fits yet but I may try it on tomorrow.

Never mind SG- 1lb could just as easily be due to 'seasonal variations' as anything. As BB says, put it behind you. Bet you lose at least 2lbs next week. :hug:

It always seems to me like it's so very easy to gain a pound, but very hard to lose one...

When I weighed myself yesterday, I was 14.5 pounds less than I was on October 1st, in spite of relaxing the diet a bit. (Or because of??!!) But I don't feel any thinner. My face looks thinner, but my clothes don't feel any looser, which is no good at all! I do feel a bit lighter though. I feel like I am moving faster.
Ideally, I should lose a least another stone and a bit to get back to my pre-weight gain weight, which seems terribly daunting.
