    Sorry, thought I'd answered this yesterday. We had mushroom soufles to start on leaves, then smoked haddock with roast tomatoes and spinach (and then WW chips for those that wanted) followed by hedgerow jelly. It was all great, everyone enjoyed the food and a good time was had by all.

    So in an effort to change my life I did a 20 minute intense cardio workout mailed to me by a friend. Lets just say my legs and arms are feeling it right now! Also instead of pushing DS in his buggy I wore him in his carrier for 45 minutes doing the shopping! According to my fitness pal app that burns over 100 calories right there! I did have crappy food for dinner (chips and a chicken salad wrap with cheese) BUT I made sure to save calories throughout the day to ensure I could afford to eat the bad food ;) I'm really liking this app!! Do you guys have a set day in the week when you weigh in or is it just whenever suits you? I weighed myself again today and no change (a few days is hardly going to make a difference I suppose) so I'm thinking maybe its best to avoid the scales all week until a certain day/time?

    I've always weigh in on a Friday morning first thing before having anything to eat or drink. That way if I have a treat at the weekend at some point by weigh in I would have made up for it.

    I weigh in on a Wednesday mostly because its what I'm used to. (My old WW class was a Weds morning). However it suits me well because personally if I weighed myself on a Friday and I'd lost a good amount of weight I wouldn't think so much about being naughty at the weekend. It's also far enough away from the weekend that if I did use my naughty points then I should have counteracted that by eating well mon and tues.

    The main thing to do is to always weigh yourself at the same day and time each week, and if wearing clothes say at a meeting try and wear stuff similar eg. Not jeans that are heavier.

    I personally weigh myself as soon as I wake up on a weds before ice eaten or drunk anything :)

    I keep weighing myself in the evening for some reason even though I know you should do it in the morning before eating or drinking :rotfl:

    I'm thinking I might have to cut out my weekend treat days, considering I only have 3 months left and still a long way to go to being fit and toned!

    Sorry I haven't been on but I've been sticking to my calories on MFP and lost nothing, well in fact I put 4lb on :'(

    But I started the 5:2 diet last Monday and so far I've lost 5lb this week :) So I'm back on track

    Well done everyone and keep it up x

    I think I may have to too, I keep thinking 3months is plenty of time but I think it's soon going to come round.

    I can relate-had a rubbish weekend,and dare not weigh myself as jeans told me how heavy I was,as they fitted during the week,and could hardly get them on today.:confused3

    So,literally,the new plan,starts tomorrow.

    Well done on your weight loss on 5:2 plan.:)

    Hiya everyone!

    I'm down 6lbs in 4 weeks due to my January Paleo 30 days. If anyone is interested in it, just googleWhole 30 Paleo

    Still have around 6lbs to go and really working to get there - My main focus is on eating the right foods at the right time for my body.

    I try to avoid "treats" simply because I become desperate for my "treat day" and it becomes a focus point, whereas if I eat whole foods and healthy fats then I tend to not crave anything sugary or fried.

    Anyone doing workout DVDs? I have a couple at home that I was going to add into my daily routine just to mix thigns up a bit.
