*Oct/Nov/Dec 'Christmas Cracker' Dieting Thread*




Well, we blinked and missed the Summer For most of us our 'beach bods' are a distant memory, so the next thing to look forward to is Christmas and trying to get into that little black dress (or smart suit) for the festive season

If you have still got your holiday to look forward to, then lucky you to still be thinking about shorts and swimwear, I hope you're still heading in the right direction

For those of us who seem to be on a permanent diet, how is your dieting going ? Please share how you're getting on, whether it's good or bad. Let's see if we can give each other a little bit more encouragement and motivation

Good Luck this month everyone

Welcome to our dieting thread Jamie. Will you be following a dieting plan or just cutting back ? I'm sure your vow renewal will spur you on to lose those 8lbs, are you having your vow renewal in Florida ?

Good luck for your first week

Been poorly this weekend so I'm not going to stress out about it, but I will pop back later to update any weight loss once I'm feeling much better...we have all caught a nasty tummy bug in our house and it wasn't anything we ate differently oh well !

Can I join in this time around, please????

I'd lost 27lbs up to the summer (!?) and since returning from Florida I've just gone backwards. I have no motivation, just don't seem to get my head together. For the few weeks I've managed a 1lb loss, then a half lb loss. I'm at Weight Watchers (was prescibed fat busting med but it didn't agree with me, so doing it all on my own). My weigh in is Wednesday - please send pixie dust to get me back on track!

My DH retires in 4 weeks and we are back to Orlando for a week to celebrate at the start of December, I really would like to lose another 10 lbs by then.

Thanks all.

Pam

Thanks Mandy. OK Weigh in today - stayed the same, which I'm more than thrilled with. I've given myself the 'get a grip' talking too and am much more motivated now. Am going for a loss next week.

Thanks for your support.
