That's what it's like at work - some of them have bacon, egg, and beans on a white sub for a mid morning snack everyday and then think nothing of a McDonalds and a takeaway, and load of alchohol after work.

The sad thing is that minus the drink, I used to be like that.

How is everyone doing?

I was down a pound this morning (see my journal for full account of the drama).

I had fun making a 'weight loss' advent calender. Basically I got a peice of paper, wrote the numbers 157 - 140 on there and surrounded it with pictures of pretty dresses, christmas trees, parcels, and snowmen. I've already ticked of three boxes!

Mine was to get further on my new workout video than I did yesterday. I did the whole thing - which is nearly 15 mins extra!

Hi everyone.

No weightloss to report, but I have returned from a 25 minute walk (a rarity for me after a day at work).

In a similar vein, anyone who's interested can tootle down to 1.html which is a little challenge for those of us who claim to have 'no time' for walking. 30 days. 30 minutes. Hopefully oodles of weightloss.

Hi Amanda, congrats on giving yourself such a big target! That takes real willpower.

I'm just back from my (early) walk and feeling pretty darn good.

Hi size12soon (love the inspirational name btw!)

Thanks for joing me on this. The good nes is that 30 minutes a day will equal *900* minutes of exercise and will mean we'll be getting even more than our reccomended exercise a week.

It's not even the 1st yet, but you know what? I'm going out for a walk anyway. Right now.

Damnit! I was doing really well last week, even though I didn't drop the desired pound. Anyway, Mum and Dad were away for two days and I was on my own, and I still managed fine...and then dad comes back and takes me out for a meal. I felt sick I ate that much...

Yesterday was better but not great, and today we're all out of fruit (it's a bank holiday so we can't buy any). Oh hell...

I'm gonna try and do some exercise to make up for it, but some support would be great!

My best friend is like that - but she's not at all annoying about it, thank god!

She is a vegetarian, so that may have something to do with it, but she'll scoff chocolate, ice cream, and anything else without gaining a pound!

Thankfully she supports my diet and doesn't tempt me, so I don't mind.

I'd seen that one before - it's both shocking and facinating!

Thanks for the support everyone (see my journal for my other comments on the mini-drama that was 'that extra pound')

Thankfully the pound in question had dissapeared this morning and I'm quietly confident to hit 155 tomorrow!
Motivation What "real life" goals do you have OTHER than pants size and weight? Aug 23 2007

I want to:

1. Be able to wear a cropped teeshirt and not be ashamed of my belly.

2. To be able to show off my legs. (Kind of acheived!)

3. Wear the cutest damn dress ever to the Christmas party at work.

4. To officially not be 'fat'.

Never thought of it that way. I thought it was my body's self defense mechanism (I have a habit of falling flat on my face and twisting my ankle on tiny stones).

Will give it a go.

My parents and best friend say they can see it (even if I can't). But no one else has mentioned it.

Ah much for the gasps of wonder and adoration I'd been planning on!
