    I didn't post yesterday as I was disappointed that I seem to have put on about 3 lbs since the previous Friday.
    But I suppose I should be honest, and my weight yesterday was 151.8 lbs. :bag:

    I think that I should have a weekly weigh in on Saturday because I have found my pound again and I am 7 stone today (where has my stone been since yesterday ) ?

    I am now back up to 10 stones exactly starting to find a balance at last hopefully. :)

    I hope every one achieves their goals whatever they may be and congrats to all who have stepped a little closer to their aims today. Commiserations for those who feel they may not have.

    I moved on Tuesday, and only just unpacked my scales. Was sure I had gained or remained steady at 71.1 kg even with the heavy lifting, since diet has been erratic due to eating out a lot more than usual. However, it seems I've broken the 70 barrier, and weighed in at 69.9 kg! That's 17.8 kg lost since Christmas, 20% of body weight. Only 5.9 kg to go.

    Well done @KitSileya . That's brilliant. I'm sure your 5.9kgs are worried as they will soon be GONE! ;)

    Yep! As predicted I've lost 0.5kg since friday.
    This monday morning I weigh 124.30kgs.
    Last week I was ill so I normally add when ill, unlike most of the population who lose weight when sick. Not me. At least I stayed the same last week and on course for at least 1kg loss come friday! :) :) :)
    So a 0.5kg loss in 2 days! :) :) :)
    Fighting fit (ish) now.
    Seeing dietician for monthly weigh-in on thursday. :)

    Enjoy your kids while they are young because children grow up very fast. Before you know it, they are teenagers and soon move out of the house. They are precious.

    I'm wishing friday here. I hope I don't get water retention more, due to heat. On-line shopping only for me today. Shame as I miss the activity but too hot and my blood pressure goes through the roof. Kept having dizzy spells yesterday. Either blood pressure or thyroid levels are out again. Blood test this morning for diabetes specialist. Dietician on thursday for monthly weigh-in too. I hope she is pleased with my loss.
