Against the odds this week I got to weigh in. Another 1.5lbs gone which was a nice surprise as although I've stuck to plan it's been a few days of hotchpotch meals. Total off is now 4 stones and 9.5 pounds.

I now have 4.5lbs to go to get to target and I'm thinking it'd be nice to get as near to this as possible before Mum's funeral (25th Nov). Every week I'd see her Thursday morning and she'd ask how the weigh in had gone the night before. Whenever I lost she'd give me a huge thumbs up; when I didn't she said I'd do it.

    Your weight loss is fantastic, Grace. Well done. I know how difficult it can be at times. It's especially difficult for me when chocolate calls!

    Thanks for the replies and the continued encouragement. This is still the one thing this year I can control.

    I'm quite a stubborn person (no, you say - what a surprise!) so this stubbornness helps me in a way with things such as this.

    I'll have to see what the next weigh-in brings.

    Thanks. I stayed the same last week - not a surprise really as the two preceding weeks I'd lost 3.5lbs. We'll see what Wednesday brings - I'm not giving up - not now!
