    Hello everybody, I am back from my lovely holiday in France. I had a great time and would have liked to have stayed longer.

    I managed to keep on plan, despite the delightful food everywhere. My BiL also kept to his 5:2 diet plan, so I had company on some of the fasting days. I also moved around more as my joints feel much happier in the warm.

    So, over the last two weeks, I have managed to lose another 5lbs - YAY! :j

    I may have failed dismally and be nearly a stone heavier than I was at the start of this challenge but I'm 4.5lb lighter than I was this time last week so hopefully I can keep it going and do better for the final quarter of the year.

    Brambling Thank you so much for all your hard work. I may not have been dieting at all but knowing that there are people who can fully understand why "just eat less" is the most pointless advice in the world has really helped me with not beating myself up too much about it.

    I haven't lost anything either Izadora. The trials and tribulations of the House Troll really affected my mood but thanks to a meeting with the school SENCO and his maths teacher last week I think that if the issues aren't finally sorted at least everyone concerned has more idea of what is going on and what to do about it. They're also going to work on building the HT's confidence up after his previous maths teacher. Luckily the SENCO taught him maths from his year 6 in junior school so she knows him well.

    Anyway, time to concentrate on me again if you'll have me please? I am going to use MFP to calculate my food intake/calories. I still have my fitbit but I haven't been running since early in the summer when the HT started to be miserable. I'm off to work now and I'm sure that counts as cardio - there's a lot of lifting involved.

    Thank you for all your hard work here Brambling.

    Welcome back s_glover and FrugalLina (who very nearly became FungalLina :o) glad you both enjoyed your holidays. And wow 5lb off whilst on holiday I think we all need to borrow your sister FrugalLina :T

    Cranky I'm glad the HT is a little more settled in school and hopefully you will be able to find some me time :)

    I've created a new thread and all are welcome please use it to set any targets if you want to :)

    Just a quick reminder that there is no judging on this thread and that especially means to ourselves we are all great at supporting each other but not always ourselves :grouphug:

  • Isn't it nice that everyones back from their various breaks, just in time for the new thread. :)

    FrugalLina you are right, your sister should run a health farm or similar. You have done incredibly well.

    Izadora a loss is a loss, and 4.5lb is really good going, congratulations! Hows it going with Mr? Has he lost weight too?

    s_glover Italy is such a sensory country, I can see how that would happen! I'm sure you will lose it again soon looking at your track record on the smiley faces

    cranky sounds horrid, but glad you've moved things along for him. You sound like a super advocate. Do you think you'll be able to pick up the running again sometime?

    B -
    L - French onion soup, half mini naan, half apple, half banana
    T - chicken thai curry, rice, apricot crumble, little cream,
    S - not tonight!

    I'm going to be a bit upside down tomorrow, so that may well affect what I eat. We will have to see how it goes.
    A bit of grin and bear it, a bit of come and share it
    You're welcome we can spare it, yellow socks

    Thank you Brambling and tighteningthebelt.

    I shall tell my sister to start up that health farm, she is very good at it. She is one of those lucky people who rarely gains weight and has a small appetite, but is quite understanding of us normal folk who find it less easy.

    Thanks for all the support everyone and a special thanks to Brambling for all the hard work, running these threads. :T
