2lb off for me this week, still not sure whether to stick with my original target or bring it in slightly. Think I'll leave it as it is and get as close as possible to it, what ever I do now is a bonus

I'm sure as soon as we start doing our Christmas shopping (providing we avoid all food which smells good) then that will be great body magic and we'll lose a couple of stone in the blink of an eye!

Hi everyone, long time no speak.

Hope you are all ok, looking at everyones progress, you are doing fantastic!

I've still been plodding on, sticking to plan, have lost 3st 12.5lb and I'm now in to the 13's! I've set my official Slimming World target as 11st, which will just get me in to the 'healthy' range on the NHS graph thingy. I may put it down further once I reach that, but for the moment that's my goal weight. When I started, at the end of June, 11st seemed like an impossibility, but now I know that I can do it.

My mum got her 3st award this week and my sister-in-law got her 2st award last week. Even my brother has lost a few lb, much to my sister-in-laws disgust as she thought that, for the first time ever, she was finally lighter than him. Then he went and ruined it by telling her that he'd stood on the bathroom scales and had lost weight, just by eating the Slimming World friendly family dinners that she had been making.

Anyway, that's enough yacking, here's the list.

Sarah we all do it and I think goals by x time are great if not for anything but to keep you going forwards. It's not an easier journey, you're doing amazing!

Lyndsey, stick to your goal anything above is bonus to go through to your next plan with. Well done you!

That's FAB thistle That BMI thing is nonsense, don't pay much attention to that pay attention to how great you feel although easier said than done because I paid too much attention to it at one point too!

Well done everyone!

Thank you Wobbles
I'm pleased to report a 0.5lb loss this week (very underserved I might admit after what I ate last week!)

Well after gaining 3lb last week I've happily lost 3.5lb this week - not a great monthly loss and no chance of hitting my xmas goal I had set but I'm focusing on my 2 and a half stone award next week - 1lb needed. And have bought a countdown taking me till 2nd Jan.

May I join as a very latecomer?

If so, do we just copy the previous post and amend our own?

Being realistic, and with 4 weigh ins left till Christmas, I'd like to aim for 7lbs. That would put me firmly in the 16st bracket, which would be a mice way to start the new year....
