OK glassortwo let's go for 7lbs in four weeks. I pledge to cut out chocolate. What's your downfall?

glassortwo Wed 27-Nov-13 22:01:55

kate yes sounds good, its bread that is my downfall, anykind... hot toast and butter especially hmm

gillybob Wed 27-Nov-13 23:13:36

Yes bread is my main problem too. I just love it. Oh and cheese.
Put the two together and I am in heaven !

I put on a pound and a half this week post getting to goal last week. Not so good but at least a pound of that was the clothes I was wearing and the fact that I had breakfast this week before I went. I hope it was anyway.

Too much G&T over past few days but have cut out chocolate. Have lost 1lb. Oh and lots of chips because DGS has been here. Have you tried the Hairy Bikers diet book recipes? Tasty especially the carrot cake. ....mmmmmm.

kate put a few of you favourite recipes on here we are always looking for something new.

Well done losing 1lb, I havent been weighed the batteries have gone in the scales grin good excuse eh!

coast that often happens when you reach goal, just takes a little getting used to not having to go full tilt at it, its all about getting the balance right. But clothes and eating before makes a huge difference.

I did bite the bullet and weigh myself this morning and wasn't anywhere near as bad as I'd thought smile. Lots of long healthy walks for me next week, hopefully [weather permitting].

glassortwo Fri 29-Nov-13 20:43:27

see tegan its worth biting the bullet its never as bad as we expect, and it also calls a halt to those moments when you think what the hell. smile

Tegan Fri 29-Nov-13 20:46:17

I ate loads of cheese last night [got back to the eating a chunk of cheese last thing at night syndrome]. Oh; must go and dig out me walking poles before I forget!

glassortwo Fri 29-Nov-13 20:49:16

Take them with you tegan there are some lovely walks up here. Do you only like hard cheese? As you can get really low Laughing cow tringles and philly.

I'm bringing the chocolates I didn't order but were sent to the GN meeting.
They're the chocolate club fortified selection. Do you think anyone will eat them? Or will I have to take them home again?

glassortwo Fri 29-Nov-13 21:46:52

I am sure they will be eaten galen grin I am looking forward to Edinburgh and seeing everyone again. I am not even thinking about being good until I get back.

Galen Fri 29-Nov-13 21:50:18

Permission from Glass to gorge folks!

glassortwo Fri 29-Nov-13 21:53:17

Did I just say that... no must have been someone else. grin

Kate13 Sat 30-Nov-13 20:26:45

Well, weighed myself this morning and have put the 1lb back on, courtesy of munching biscuits with the painter/decorator for two days, and bacon sandwiches ( not at the same time smile.Today I declined breakfast and only had a sandwich for tea. Yes glassortwo I'll put a couple of my favourite recipes on here....but not tonight.....I've just had two large glasses of red..ooops. grin

Galen Sat 30-Nov-13 21:23:49

You should have seen what Glass ate tonight!shock

Kate13 Sat 30-Nov-13 23:08:26

Well I have locked myself in the bedroom so I can't get to the kitchen. Not proud of myself but at least I refrained from making carrot cake today . Meeting up in Edinburgh sounds fun. I used to live there. Hope you had the full Scottish breakfast. ....
