I've done it! I've done it and with icing and a cherry on top of the cake metaphorically speaking! :lol:

It was my weekly weigh in tonight and last week I'd only lost half a pound leaving me with an elusive one and a half pounds to get off so that I could pronounce to the world "I've lost a stone".

I've only gone and lost 4lbs in one week! 4lbs in one week! :lol::lol: In the words of Victor Meldrew, "I cannot believe it!".

This means I've not only got to my one stone off but have gone past it! I was that chuffed I celebrated with a cup of tea when I got home. I wasn't able to dance up and down sadly due to pain, but in my mind I was leaping up and down 10 feet in the air!

I can't do this without the support from all of you so thanks so much. You'll never know what a difference having the support of all you wonderful people on this Forum means to me.

My next step? To get to my "One and a Half Stone" award. I've broken it down into half stone chunks to make it manageable.

Off for my two finger Kit Kat now - which is my daily treat.

Thanks again.

    Thank you all for taking the time and trouble to reply.

    I'm still pleased and have been telling as many people as I can.

    Carol - I registered for the group on 31st August and started the plan on 1st September. I've always known this was going to be a long journey so I prepared myself for this fact.

    I've been very careful to stay "on plan". I'm meeting a friend for a coffee next week and she's twice suggested we "have a breakfast" or "what about a scone?". I've been strong and said I'll have either some fresh fruit or a salad as I'm not prepared to go backwards.

    Realistically, I hope next week when I weigh in to stay the same (maintain), if I were to lose even a pound that'd be a bonus but I seem to be averaging about one and a half to two pounds a week off which is nice and steady.

    I've already said to family and friends no chocolates or biscuits for me at Christmas. I don't intend to buy any either! If they're not in the house I can't be tempted. If I am given any chocolates or biscuits I'll donate them to our local Hospice as they supported both my late Father and my late Sister and I know would appreciate that sort of thing for raffle prizes or the patients to enjoy. I do, however, intend to have some treats on Christmas Day and Boxing Day although I will be sensible.
