To help us older folk quickly spot the losses, please post the loss as BOLD and Colourful as possible (Its helps those of us with bad eyes )

    Hope everyones ok!

    I stayed up till 1am last night which i never do unless i drink loads of alcohol to keep me going. I do feel a bit hungover, which is wierd! Must be my brain knowing i only stay up that late if i drink lots.

    Fed the ducks today, flaming nora i am glad im not a femal duck!! Jeez. The male ducks kept diving underwater and fighting. It was brutal! Saw some nice lambs aswell in the countryside. I love lambs Boyfriend thinks im about 5 years old, but i still love watching lambs and feeding ducks

    COME ON KIMI! ha. That crash was nasty, cant believe how well they build their cars. Talking of monte carlo, i gotta go watch that race before i die. Me and the girls on lingerie joked once about flying over there to find some rich men and to watch the race from a few million grands worth of yaught. That ord doesnt look right!

    anyway, have a nice sunday. Im off to do college work before i get tempted to watch more webcams. Yesterday i was watching some lorry going along motorways!

    Wow Starlight well done! I wish I could be brave enough to post my pics but I'm camera shy. I honestly don't have any recent ones - I'm always on the other side of the camera (my excuse is that I use my camera for my art and so no one else can touch it!) I always end up looking like Princess Anne's horse in pics.
    I would if I could but I can't so I won't!

    Thanks for the new thread Suggs - hoping to make it on page 1 at least. Starlight - you can sooo see the difference with your weightloss - you look half the woman you were
    I had a great time at the wedding thanks missyg and the weather was superb. Just been for a post wedding laid back lunch with bride, groom and friends at a venue on the beach. Have eaten like a horse these last two days.So back on plan tomorrow. I think I'll put my scales in the attic until WI wednesday as I don't want to know the full extent of what I have done to myself before the chance of a few very good days. A quiet day ahead thank goodness now.
    Tagz, you do not sound a moaner ever, quite the reverse as you gradually let slip everything you are having to deal with. Very glad to hear DD aching as stopped - good reason to be hopeful.
    I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once

  • grannynise
    Thanks for the thread Suggs. Wish I'd been the first, I wanted to know what the mystery prize would be. Maybe Missyg will tell us?

    I'm not doing too well at the weight loss thing at the moment, really have lost and gained the same few pounds for about 2 months, but have decided to be very positive about what I have achieved so far ... (and now this is the brave bit) here I am now:





    and here I am a year ago:



    And LW20 WILL see some more real losses. Granny is re-determined!

    Welcome Surfbabe. This is the right place for motivation .. it's motivated me out of 33lb so far.
  • ajaxgeezer
    NISE!!!! You've done sooooo well, you're looking great. (quite hot actually, let's PM and flirt awhile )

  • grannynise
    Ajax, so long as no one else finds out ...... but do I have to get under the desk too?

    Oh,granny, the difference is amazing! I remember the photo last year from 'behind' which made you look very broad shouldered. You look all soft and loverly now. Well done on focussing on what you have achieved so far. That 2.5 ish stone has made a huge difference and you are right to relish that as an achievement. I say just stick with us and in time you'll find the energy to relaunch the next phase. The important thing is you are not putting loads back on, just practising the art of maintaining, which is good. There is no law which says you have to lose everything in x months.
    Surfbabe- you are very welcome to join in. 16lbs sounds very achieveable. How to hope to achieve this?

    Oh Granny you look lovely

    And you also confused me slightly, I was expecting the 'before' photo first, so I thought you'd put on the weight now I feel silly

    Suggs hasn't told me what the prize is yet but hopefully it involves the leiderhosen.

    Granny you look fantastic! Very, very glam! Thanks for posting the pics up, you can definitely see the difference and you should be so proud

    So glad all went well yesterday and today BB.

    Hello Surfbabe are you really a surfbabe?

    Glad I didn't bother watching the GP :rolleyes: haha just kidding - hats off to you Ajax for your correct prediction...

    Not as silly as me, Raph, I'd actually labelled them the wrong way round first of all, but I edited it really quickly. You must be telepathic.
