  • STS is good Beanie and much better than a gain.

    1lb off for me this week. I am cutting down on wine this weekend a last week I went through at least 2 bottles of red. Have a girlie get together in a friends house tomorrow which will involve prosecco but I will eat dinner beforehand for damage limitation.

    Have a giant pan of lentil curry on the go and will do some brown rice with that.

    Lunch will be home made oven chips with a egg fried in fry lite. Love egg and chips :)

    I don't know what STS means ... I'm looking at the acronyms dictionary and checking contexts ... sad to say? so to speak? spoke too soon? I don't know :o:o:o

    Clothes are becoming looser - trying to do smaller portions, and I'm definitely eating less in the evenings, but I'd like to low-carb eventually - its just that I have a lot of carb in the house to use up :o

  • Not much of an appetite at the minute as suffering from the rapeseed pollen which I cannot escape at the moment. Apparently it is not an allergy at all but a reaction to the strong chemicals that it emits which is why some people think that they have hay fever but actually do not.

    And that folks is your interesting yet boring fact of the day...........

    I weighed myself this week and have stayed the same.


    Although I have not lost weight for the last 2 weeks loads of people at work have noticed that I have lost weight (only 8lbs but clearly it must show) so that made me happy.


    Well done everyone - you are all doing fab!!

    Hi everyone... 1 lb loss for me finally!

    Must have been the booze free weekend that did it :(

    Can't manage that every weekend, this one involved a lot of cocktails. But hoping the drunk dancing counts as exercise :D
