    Decided this week to battle the bulge a bit, yes yes i know Easter Week and school holidays so not my smartest plan :D

    Anyway "inspire me"

    I have had 2 tins of gin and slimline (ok ok but this is my first drink all week and it the BHols)

    I am cheating tonight because i am knackered so we are having a tesco meal deal, Madeira Chicken Breast and green beans with Cauliflower mash (a dieting marvel if you are cutting carbs), the kids have had the strawberry cheesecake and i put the bottle of wine away for our break next week.

    I have lost 3lb this week though so cant be bad :)

    What's everyone else having ??

    All my shorts are size 12 from last year, and they don't seem to be selling many shorts in Next or Debenhams so I'm a bit screwed really. But I still stuff my face :lol:

    I am SlimFasting. I blame metame for spoiling my Thursday night though and insisting I get a KFC.

    You should SO see the photo I just uploaded to Facebook. It wont help your diet, but its a-m-a-z-i-n-g :D

    I am going to do more SlimFast this week I was buggering about a little and with it being Easter Sunday is out and the like. Well done on your weightloss! :)

    I'm dieting at the moment, I've lost 6lbs over the last two weeks sticking to 1200 max calories per day, very little fat and quite a bit of water & caffeine... plus plenty of Zach walking ;) I'm in the lovely stage where it feels it has 'clicked' - so I'm determined to carry on to my goal weight. Easter will bring lots of temptations though... :cryin:

    I've lost a stone so far this year :) had about 6 weeks off recently, but started up again this week. Lost 3lbs so far this week.

    I'm having bolognaise pasta bake for dins. I had 1 vodka at the pub and have headed home so i'm not tempted any more.

    I've also lost 3lb this week. In the hot weather, don't deny yourself ice lollies, just stick to the fruit juice type, eg Calypso,, not the ice creams. I also have a treat day, better to have a treat day than ruin the diet altogether, I decided to have this once a week. Though I will have the odd extra treat (a choc bar or a can of Coke) if I've done a lot of exercise and I've been fine with that.
    Total loss is 6lb but not been doing it that long.

    I an attempting to get healthier at the mo, though am having trouble, i joined the gym in february and go 3 times a week, i have a muesli type breakfast, chicken salad no dressings for lunch egg for a snack and and have fish/spag bol, weighwatcher curry/fajitas for dinner having the smallest amount on pasta/potato/rice with it to cut down calories and only have a glass of wine on weekends, and so far have only lost 4 pounds. Though have to say my body shape is changing from going to the gym but it does dishearten me that i have not lost much weight but unsure what else i can do. So just keep trying.

    Not sure i can give you much advice though as it does not seem to be working to well for me.

    But good luck i know how hard it is

    Ive lost over 3 stone so far, unfortunately still got loads to loose, Ive got used to it now but I think at this rate I will be dieting till next summer, definately no easter eggs for me this year :(. Im just calorie counting and I excercise every day (swimming or gym) plus walking the dogs, the extra excercise has definately helped.

    You're doing really well - you've probably lost fat but gained muscle at the gym, I'd definitely carry on taking measurements rather than worrying about what the scales say too much. One thing I would say is get rid of the muesli, even though some are healthy most are full of sugar and very calorific... swap for porridge or bran with skimmed milk :)
