    Second weigh in today 83.5Kg with 0.5Kg loss this week. Not really a good start but not surprising either. This week I am armed with food diary, low card book, couch to 5k app and plenty of determination!

    Back down to 9st8lbs ... well just a tad over ... after a rise last week.
    I know that I'm within the BMI range that's correct for my mini height, but I'd like another
    half stone off to feel there's a bit of room for maneuver at Christmas/New Year :)

    Down two and three quarter pounds this week, so delighted to nail that after a few weeks of not troubling the scorers.

    Still wavering from 95kgs to 93.9kgs.
    After Xmas I will be ready to lose again. I'd have to buy more new clothes though. I'm not happy about that as I've bearly worn my size new ones now. I know fashion changes but my income for clothes buying doesn't. So money on Xmas for 2 kids first. I'll still weighing weekly just to monitor, for now. Needs must.
    Some trousers and jeans are too big now so they'll go to charity in February.

    Keep forgetting to post. Weight this week was 17st 5.2 lb. Up another bit since last time. Experimenting with the dietician's suggestions but, as I suspected they're no help at all - weight up even more and BG readings up as well.

    Have been over eating and not weighing. Know it's gone up though as belt now on three holes not five
    Errant has been ill, and lost some weight, was down to 3.9kg
    I think he has rediscovered hunting... he seems heavier and has taken to disappearing for hours. A bit unsettling for me as am accustomed to him keeping close to the house. It's also very bad timing on his part as the shooting season has just started, so he is at risk from men with guns and dogs.

    Oh its early Friday morning and I'm
    So excited. I started this journey
    Over 16 stone. Today I am down to
    15 stone and am so happy. I didn't
    Think I could do it because I'm fighting
    Against weight gaining meds, but the
    Low carb and exercise worked.

    Chipped off another Kg, sometimes it seems I’m not making progress, just sticking to the plan
