    Thanks for the new challenge. New thread, new start. Took the plunge and weighed myself this morning and I'm really embarrassed to say that I am 2lbs heavier that I was at the start of the previous challenge *hangs head in shame*
    I am going to aim very low on this challenge in the hope that it'll make it seem more achievable. Please could you put me down for 13lbs, which is 1lb per week.

    Toast for breakfast, pate and crackers for dinner and it's a special day so we are walking to the chippy for tea. Not fantastic dieting I grant you but considering what has my usual diet has been consisting of its pretty darn good and I am breaking myself in gradually. Starting at 11stone 4lb would like to be 10stone 5 by June's deadline.
    Weight loss 6lb/16lb 10lb to go
    I spend an insane amount of time wondering if I am doing it right, sometimes I remind myself that I am doing my best....and that is enough

    Good evening everyone :hello:
    Well I have had a very good day today, staying within my calories and trying a new recipe for dinner. It was chicken and leeks with a blue cheese sauce (page 112 Cranky) and it was absolutely delicious, not like diet food at all :D. I have organised shopping to be delivered tomorrow with more ingredients to try more recipes out.

    Nice to see so many people rejoining this challenge, I always think I may not have lost very much so far this year but I am not giving up although I may go off and sulk for a bit every now and then :o:). I hope we are all successful this quarter and even though we may stumble, we all manage to get back on track with the help and support of each other. Right I'm off to bed before I get the tummy grumbles, take care xx

    Hi Everyone,

    A late post as I've been working this evening. I have added up what I've eaten and gone over my carb target so not a good start. Partly because things got switched around and I ended up not having lunch till nearly 3pm in a hurry before dashing off to work for four.

    Lunch: 2 poached eggs on homemade sourdough toast.
    Dinner: Cauliflower cheese with bacon pieces (left over from yesterday)
    Treats: 2 chocolate biscuits. 6 pieces of dark chocolate

    I have achieved my step total and played an hours tennis this morning so I suppose I could have had a worse start. I really need to fit in a supermarket shop to stock up on vegetables again.

    Target 8st 12lbs
