    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.

    Eating a little better and it shows on my weight and BG figures.
    Down from 53.6 (for me that's huge) to 51kg this morning.
    Errant has recovered his appetite, and attitude, but not his voice so I am debating whether another visit to the vet is required.
    His weight has increased from 3.7 to 4kg.
    @McHelen any loss is good. And you seem to have all the tools needed to sustain that downward trend.
    @ultradad well done, 36 in waist again. Are you having to purchase clothes to fit your new slimmer figure?
    @LindaManville fantastic progress.
    @Dandelade slow downward trend is more likely to be maintained. Of course you would like to get to your target weight faster, but you are on the right track.
