    I have been smashing it this week. Def lost some, but I do think my weigh in was bloated a bit as time of the month and I always carry excess water then. So I think I will have a good loss on Monday.

    However I am off to London in an hour, have pointed up what I want to eat so been stuffing myself with yoghurt and fruit to try to stop going over. Although I do have a lot of weeklies left. I had a chocolate bar yesterday, but I got a multipack, and had one, pointed it (10p) and stopped!!! Amazing for me, normally I would get a huge bar, eat the lot and feel sick. This time I savoured it and enjoyed it.

    STS this week. No surprise as I ate out twice! We were supposed to be going to the cinema but we ate out instead. The first time I made a pig of myself and had garlic bread and pizza but the second time I had tomato pasta and no starter.

    Quite lucky to stay the same really!

    I will weigh myself again on Monday to see if I manage to lose even one pound.

    Well, I fell of the wagon when in London. I had a huge doughnut. It was lush. My stomach is not happy now though!

    Fab time wi my daughter in the West end, and lots of walking so may be OK yet.

    Glad you enjoyed your day though.

    Me too. What are we like..

    Some friends dropped by and we ended up going out for a meal. I enjoyed myself and had a great time.

    No regrets. Today is another day. .

    Ouch to the bruises, ,Candy.

    I am still stiff and sore.......going to have a nice soak in the bath to try and loosen up and kickstart my day. A bit of pampering and TLC.

    Thanks LL, we had a wonderful time, staying low point today, and weight in tomorrow.

    Glad you enjoyed your meal out, just occasionally it's nice to say yes! Although my issue is then I can't go back to saying no and then it's a cycle of dispair!

    But feeling incredible atm, finding it so easy while at home anyway.

    I did manage to lose 1 pound in the end last week. Better than nothing, I suppose as I did eat out twice.

    Hi, LL, do you mind if I join your thread?

    I've started logging my points using WW online. I have not done this for several months. I have also gained 5lb I don't want to put weight back on after having lost three stone, so I'm now back on track (no pun intended).

    Wishing everyone a good week and hope you're all losers .

    I hope none of you mind, but I tell no-one my starting weight, nor what I weigh now, even IRL. This is because I don't want any comments about it, even if they are good ones, it would impact negatively on me. But comment away about the amount I have lost!).

    I have started doing yoga. 3 a class at my gym. I must say I like it better than the usual gym exercises (and work up more of a sweat!).. I think this is because there is someone at the front telling and showing me what to do and also other people doing the same thing. My husband and I are by far the oldest in the group, at 69 and 70. Our son and his partner come too, so it's a nice family outing

    I surprised myself by being able to do most of the exercises (apart from some of the balancing ones, when I have been known to fall over!). Anyway, after last week's exercise, the yoga instructor told me well done and said I should be proud of myself. So I am

    Am looking forward to my next class on Saturday.

    I've had cereal for breakfast and I'm making a zero points soup for lunch.

    I'm having it with a Marmite sandwich as someone on another thread made me get a craving for one.

    I'm making veggie and lentil pasta for dinner and will probably have fresh fruit and some yoghurt as snacks.

    Good morning everyone.

    SDW. Of course you are welcome. You'll soon nip that 5lb gain in the bud.

    Well I have had a great weekend. And despite my little blips during the week, if my scales are telling the truth then I have only got 1.9lbs to go uNtil I reach my birthday target.

    Official WW WI tonight.

    Not quite sure of my menu today but I think I will probably have shepherdless pie for dinner. 0pts.

    I lost 51/2lbs! Who is fab, but I am a lb off going under the stone bracket. This is what I efo though have a fab weight loss, then plateau for two weeks then lose a load more. Which I find hard to keep at. Also this week, trip up north fo a funeral. Going to be super good until Thurs, then be sensible. And claw it back at the weekend. That's the plan anyway.

    Sdw, I used to do yoga, always loved it. Should get back to it really.

    Me too, definitely need to some yoga or Pilates.....stretch my poor aching muscles.

    Drawingaline. wow. Well done!!! Must be the "whoosh effect". Maybe that's just the way it works for you, plateau and then loss. It's still on a downward trajectory..

    Just taking a break from gardening whilst it rains for a while, it's brown bin day on Wednesday and I'm having to share my neighbours at the moment. Long story. I noticed it's only half full so I'm on a mission to clean up some of the weeds and hopefully mow the lawn tomorrow. In between time I'm still sorting and decluttering, usually when it's raining.

    Gardening and deep cleaning counts as exercise in my book.

    Today's menu.

    B. cheese and ham omelette 2 Pts
    L. Garlicky creamed mushrooms on a small warmed flat bread 3pts
    D. Shepherdless pie, cauliflower, carrots and peas 0pts

    For cream I use half fat creme fraiche.

    Am experimenting adding a few more carbs, hopefully to improve my energy levels. Need to be careful though because of blood sugar levels, but the odd bit of bread shouldn't make too much of an impact.

    Might try a bit of pasta soon. ....I could murder a macaroni cheese. Can't remember the last time I had some.

    Still it will be worth it.

    Need to spend some time with the recipe books. Need some fresh ideas.

    LL, macaroni cheese is my absolute favourite thing ever.

    In fact cheese is quite probably my favourite food. Definitely not very diet friendly!

    I might treat myself to a low fat version one of these days.

    Didn't go to WI couldn't be bothered but according to my scales I have lost 2lbs. . I think they are pretty accurate so I'm happy. Anyhoo I can tell by my clothes that I'm still losing steadily.

    Off outmthis evening. I'm driving so a perfect excuse to avoid alcohol.

    B. Banana fritters 1pt
    L. Some sort of salad, probably ham. 2pts
    D. Salmon. Opts

    Have ordered a waffle maker. My pancakes always taste good but sometimes they do stick to the pan and look very messy so I thought I'd make waffles instead.

    I have a waffle maker and a pancake maker. Well worth the spend. I am lazy and get mix from Costco. The kids often have them for tea on a Friday. I copied a waflle mix from the app, someone had posted it on the connect bit, they bake them in the oven using a silicone mould from amazon. It's in my wish list atm.
