How very dare you, EJ :p Do you think I have no self-control? ;)
I had two packets of them, and only ate one. o/ In my book, that shows remarkable self control. :D

Did lots of walking but lots of eating.
If I maintain on Tuesday I will be delighted.
Has everyone else been good?
I'm still being bad from time to time foodwise, but that seems to be offset by the 8 spinning classes and 2 aquafit sessions I do each week now. I'd lost another 2 pounds when I got weighed yesterday. Admittedly, I'd just stepped out of the sauna before I got weighed, which I think may have had a lot to do with it - but I'm claiming it anyway.
Under the circumstances, it may be tough to maintain the loss next week - but we'll see ;)

I'm happy with the level of exercise I'm fitting into my week now, but I do need to start p*ying more attention to what I'm eating, both from the view of quantity and quality.

My favourite snacks are natural yoghurt with honey, & Carrs crackers ("table water black pepper" - they're very tasty)...I'm trying to have these rather than biscuits / chocolates!! Would be grateful for more ideas...
:shifty: I haven't done it recently, :confused: but carrots and celery cut into sticks then dipped into low-fat cottage cheese, used to be a favourite lowish calorie snack of mine. ;)

Good luck with your weigh-ins this week everyone. :cross:

Woohoo Well Done '65 :bighug: - That's terrific :cheer:

Well.... o/ what great results for everyone :cool:

Collectively, I calculate that to be somewhere around 15 pounds lost between us so far, and were only 2 weeks in.

I predict that we are all going to be so trim and toned for the summer. ;) :D

:shifty: You may say I'm a dreamer. But I'm not the only one. I hope some day you'll join us. And FMUK will slim as one!

:confused: What?


Thanks for being there for us Jojo :bighug:

Well done Preston & Diane! Great news about your weight loss this week.

I've done my bit of exercise for the day....got up at 6am (don't know how I managed that?!), & was at Boots for when they opened. There were 50 or so others with me waiting for store opening. Their 70% off sale started today. I came armed with my bag on wheels....looked at my receipt, it said at the bottom "today you have saved: £205".......wow! Did anyone else go there this morning?x

Thanks and wow I didn't even realise that it started today - fabulous savings. I am wondering if I can fit in a quick trip after work.

It's worth it, Diane - they have some really lovely toiletries sets on offer (the best deal seems to be the big Soap & Glory box-contents worth £78, original price £60, today down to just £18!

Arghh, Sorry Jojo! :oops:

Blinking Flip! - I've only gone and blooming well gained a pound this week haven't I! :wall:

I put this down to missing 2 days of spinning due to the bad weather, :roll: and me not fancying venturing out in the snow. :nono:

Well that will teach me to be so wussy won't it :mad:

I'm going to give myself a stiff talking to and I'll be going to bed with no supper for the rest of the week 8O

Good luck with your upcoming weigh-ins fellow Fmuketeers :cross: and well-done on bagging all those fantastic bargains Clare o/ :D
