Well, another 2.5lbs has gone making a total weight loss for me of 12lbs since the start of September. :lol:

I'm really pleased with progress, especially as I've not been able to exercise at all this week following my chest pains situation last Friday night.

My next aim? To lose a further 2lbs and get another award - this time for my "1 Stone" off.

    Thank you all for your replies and your continued encouragement.

    I'm following the plan but also allowing myself some treats every day. I'm certainly not hungry and those of you who've done the SW diet will understand this completely. :lol:

    I'd like to get that 2lbs off next week but if it doesn't happen next week I'm sure it will the following week.

    100% agree with those sentiments Grace think its called taking the scenic route :lol: but it the best way to do it. and those treats are important makes it all the easier to follow because you are not depriving yourself of all the things you like, and that way you are more likely to stick to it. and if you don't get that stone next week i'm sure you will the week after. :D:D
    Take care
