Glad you finally got your certificate and badge Janet. I'd just say keep on keeping on - your story and ability to keep the weight off will inspire others in the group.
Glad you're still smiling Donna, and you're so right about the fact it is virtually November! emoticon
Not sure what my plans are for today. My daughter went to a gig in London last night and returned in the wee small hours so the chances of her surfacing any time soon are pretty slim! May get back on the Wii Fit - that's lots of fun.
Enjoy your day

I agree Jackie the weather isn't good here today either. I find reading/watching the story of people's lived fascinating. Some end very sadly. I've just seen on the news about Jackie O and Onassis...I had no idea about her marriage to that man!! sounded like a nightmare.

Weighed in today at group and stayed the same, fine by me. Also (finally) received my Diamond Award certificate and badge!! What do I strive for next? emoticon

I'm fine thanks. Spending a few days with the kids at Eastbourne although the weather here is lousy today. Went to the library with my daughter and managed to get Miranda Hart's last book, which I know I'll be laughing out loud over. Went for a lovely long walk yesterday and trying to eat reasonably well. Watched a fabulous hour special on Vivian Leigh on Sky Arts tv this morning. I'd taped it weeks ago but never got round to seeing it. Such a beautiful and talented lady but so troubled.
Have a good day team!

Well the predicted sunshine never arrived and so it was a rather chilly and dull day but I walked plenty this morning doing my shopping around the town. I bought the wool for my chunky jumper...want to have mine & Joseph's finished by Christmas.
Had a good day on plan so hope my group weigh in goes well tomorrow morning.

How's everyone else doing...??

Oh lovely Eastbourne...more training or a social visit? You're right it's been lovely today and will be tomorrow I gather. Sometimes it's good to live far south.

Not a lot happening here because there are issues with my sister in law so the family have been phoning.
Did get out for a bit of food shopping so that was one thing achieved.
Trying to stay on plan for coming weigh in... emoticon

I'm certainly not super fit - enter events which are happy for you to walk. Was a lovely evening though.
Hope Mona manages to get her computer up and running soon - I get withdrawal symptoms if I'm away from one for too long!
In Eastbourne for a few days and the weather seems to have picked up so it's all good!

Ah Donna how sweet for your daughter... emoticon Tina!! I'm sure she'll have a wonderful day.

Jackie...hope the 5K went well...you must be super fit !!
Not sure why I've started knitting again...just fancied doing some I suppose. Fortunately I can do other things while knitting, even following the Aran pattern.

I saw on fb that poor Mona's computer died so she's a bit limited for internet at the moment.

New week...hope everyone has a good one!!

Enjoy that holiday Donna - I love Butlins and spent a few days at Bognor recently.
Knitting eh Janet?! - used to love knitting but never seem to set aside the time for it now. I'm not one of those people who can do something else while knitting (watch tv etc) as I need full concentration! I guess I could listen to music at the same time though.
Good luck with the dentist trip. Not my favourite place to go and one I've been putting off for too long!
Have a 5k Poppy Run/Walk at Battersea tonight so looking forward to that.

Thanks Jackie. Aww that was thoughtful of your partner! Hope you enjoy those DVDS.

Donna, your consultant was right and anyway 0.5 is a mere blip. Have a fab time at Butlins over half term.

Not a lot happening here today. Joseph hardly had any sleep last night so was in bed this morning too trying to catch up. The weather was rather abysmal so I stayed in and did some 'quiet' chores and also some more knitting to his sweater that I'm making for Christmas.
I have dentist tomorrow, fitting of crown and depending on how that goes we may have lunch out.

Sadly I put on 0.5lbs this week, not so good but my consultant was lovely and said I had had two good weight losses in the last 2 weeks so shouldn't worry. ;-)

I am going to Butlins, Skegness, tomorrow for a week and though will be checking briefly I will be thinking about you all and wish you very good week.

hugs and best wishes Donna x

A colleague brought some gorgeous chocolate back from his holiday in Spain so I've been sampling some for the last couple of days. Couldn't resist! Plus had a meal out at Nando's last night so the plan has gone a bit wonky donkey lately.
Hoping to meet Miranda Hart at a book signing this afternoon - that will certainly lift my spirits. Such fun!

Late getting here today. I stayed the same this week. Congratulations!! Cathy!! Two pounds is awesome.

Will be out in the morning and then I should be home until Friday morning when we leave for VA to my granddaughter's confirmation. Will be back home late Sunday.

Trying not to make a trip to the grocery store until I get back.

Have a good night everyone! Hugs to all!!

Sounds like the IOM got a taste of the Hurricane Gonzalo!! Stay safe.

We also had a windy night and when I drove along the seafront this morning the sea looked very choppy but haven't seen any damage. I have seen on the news that 3 deaths have occurred.

Another good day on plan...looking for a good weigh in tomorrow morning!! emoticon

The Chocolate Show was at Kensington Olympia for 3 days. Quite a small show in comparison to the Vitality Show for example and the chocolate was VERY rich, but had a lovely time there. Took some photos so may blog about it (if I find the time)!
Seeing a theatre show this evening - Neville's Island with Ade Edmonson and Neil Morrissey - among others. Looking forward to that.
Still getting back on track food wise.
Have a good day

Oh Jackie, where was the chocolate show? I'm could be the chiefest amongst the black toe nails!! I seem to get them all the time...just walking apparently!! No harm though, they just grow out.

Mona, they are predicting 55 mph winds...hardly hurricane status me thinks? But they are still giving warnings. Yes we've surely had sufficient rain in the UK this year.
I know you will enjoy your trip to VA and being with some of your family.
Hope your 100 day plan is going well.

It's been very mild weather wise this w/e here...tomorrow we have a delivery of a fire and surround. I'd like it to come before I leave to collect the twins from school so I can help Joseph get it in situ...well, where I want it really!! lol.

Good morning everyone.

Fall has always been my very favorite time of year. PA is so gorgeous but I have to admit it has been lovely here in SC too. Next weekend my daughter Lori and I are going to my son's in VA. It should be a beautiful drive up through the mountains of NC and into VA. My granddaughter is being confirmed so it will be a short trip but looking forward to seeing them all.

Cathy~~I just read about some missionaries that were in the Canary Islands. It sounds like an absolutely beautiful place.

Janet~~I didn't know that those hurricanes came to England. This one was huge and I haven't yet seen what all damage it did to Bermuda. Living in FL, we had plenty of hurricane issues. Hope this one dies out before getting to UK. I think you all have had enough rain for awhile.

Jackie~~I am so impressed that you went to a chocolate show. I am sure I would have sampled atleast a gain of 10 pounds. Hope your toe is okay.

Going to go and get busy. Have a great weekend everyone!! Hugs!!

The Chocolate Show today was very decadent but lovely. Bought a few things (and sampled lots!) so must now eat them in moderation!
Was horrified to remove my nail polish and discover a totally black toe nail! Can only think I damaged it during my recent half marathon but was too focused on finishing to realise!
Happy weekend!

Yes I agree Jackie we all have our little ways of trying to weigh a few ounces less!! Cathy you are right, it's just for ourselves really.

Mona...it's perfectly understandable that your scale was a little up but I know that will soon alter again now you're back on your 100 day plan. My gain was a combination of a little weight and the clothes...I didn't mind really because I expected it.

Anyone any plans for the w/e?
Seems we have Hurricane Gonzalo heading towards the UK...thankfully I'm far south east so they usually blow out long before they reach my end. But the west country may not be so fortunate.

Taking of your jewellery and wearing the lightest clothes possible before a weigh in at class,I have done that in the past,didn't fool anyone only myself.
Mind you I still do the same now that I follow the slimming world plan at home.

Hi everyone. Going to start my 100 days again tomorrow starting with Day #15. Time for Mona to get healthy!!

Once again everyone, thank you SO much for all your kindness. This is a wonderful team of friends.

Janet~~I was up 2 pounds as well but not from clothes!! Working back to be on plan and will wait until Monday to weigh in. I like Monday weigh ins. Sorry you didn't get your reward. Those are such an encouragement!! We all know you are a diamond!! In everything you do.

Diana~~sounds like your grandson had a very fun first birthday! Glad it was a happy time.

Jackie~~I have heard of Oscar Geoffrey cards. Is there a website? Are they only in the UK?

Donna~~how are the 100 days going?

Cathy~~Where is Lanzarote? Glad you had a wonderful time.

Take care everyone!! emoticon

Weighed in this morning with a 2.5lb gain...had to wear autumn clothes this week so probably accounted for some of it. I entered my weight on the SW website and it declared that I am indeed a Diamond member!! I was disappointed that my consultant had neither a certificate or badge for me!!

Diana...glad you had such fun at your grandson's 1st birthday party!

Jackie...you're right the savoury loaf was a big hit with many writing down the recipe.
Best advice I can give you is....back to basics! Remember when we first started out on plan and weighed and checked the book for info? Works every time for me.

Cathy - glad you had a good holiday. Don't worry too much about that weight gain - it happens to the best of us, especially on holiday when we tend to relax somewhat.
Janet - good luck with the weigh in. I'm sure your savoury loaf will go down a treat! emoticon
Diana - that paddling pool sounds irresistible and had I been there I'd have been desperate to go in myself! emoticon
As for me I'm struggling big time with my weight since leaving my SW class, but am trying to get back on track. Wish me luck!

What a lovely message from Mona. She is very much in all our thoughts. Thank you, Janet for passing that on.

Hopefully we're all chugging along OK. The weather here has been discouraging for outdoor exercise. I'm afraid I've been very static over the last few days.... a lot of assessment work on, which has generated way too much sitting at the computer. However we had a very special day at our Grandson's first birthday. My daughter set up a paddling pool full of those coloured balls and both he and our little Granddaughter were in their element.

This week and next week to get through and then it's half term and I'll be able to catch up. Phew!

Message from Mona to our lovely caring team:
"Just a quick note to say I am doing well. Taking care of some things but keeping on track. I am just overwhelmed with the love and kindness of my Spark Friends. Please let the SW team know they are awesome and I appreciate all the goodies, thoughts and prayers."

For anyone that doesn't know...Mona's husband Dennis passed away on Sunday.

Cathy...great that you had a nice time in Lanzarote, never mind about the gain just remember what a good time you had!! I've been to that island too...it's a true wonder!!

Jackie...yes thanks the day ended OK...well, I got the hot water working again. My grandson had the day off school today but was whizzing around when I saw him this afternoon.
My daughter and grandsons have seen that show too and said it fantastic!

Just making my savoury loaf for taster session tomorrow....I'm sure it will all get eaten! Not sure how my weigh in will go tomorrow...??
Had a good walk this morning while Joseph was at Tai Chi...

Thanks Diana...will do...

Mona we're all thinking of you at this time. emoticon

Been a bit of a challenge day...plumber left without turning the boiler back on so not hot water and grandson took a bad tumble at football. Rainy old day again...

Jackie...I know that weighing in every week certainly keeps me accountable..I need that!!!

Thanks Janet - others did find the training day tough but I was the only one who openly told everyone what I really thought of it.
Got soaked walking along the seafront yesterday but got in a brisk 5 mile walk which can't be bad.
Still struggling to get my eating under control. Going to class kept me more accountable but I got disillusioned with going.
Have a good day everyone

Hope you got your walk in Jackie...been pretty drizzle and wet along my part of the coastline. Sorry the training day was hard...maybe you weren't the only one?

Irene....hope things soon perk up for you. Yes the slow cooker can really help and good for batch cooking too.

emoticon dear Mona...you're in my thoughts and prayers. Keep at that 100 day plan, you're doing sooo well. emoticon

Intend having a lovely walk along the Eastbourne seafront today. My eating has gone a bit off track but no point in beating myself up about it.

I was so distraught when the pier was on fire at Eastbourne. At least it's repairable and no-one was hurt - although I believe there was a horrible incident subsequently involving a worker there? Can't remember now.
That lentil savoury loaf sounds fab - and free made the SW way if I remember rightly. Had a dreadful afternoon at work yesterday. Was on a training course and felt totally useless as just couldn't understand it or participate which left me feeling really dumb. 'Treated' myself to a takeaway blow out when I got back to Eastbourne which was great at the time but seems somewhat daft now. Oh well, we live and learn..........
Not sure what I'll be doing today as the weather here is lousy. Could be a tv & housework day.
Have a good one guys n gals

Mona, Jackie is right we all have times when you just cave....glad you climbed back on the wagon quickly. Praying for you and Dennis at this time my dear friend. emoticon

Thanks for the taster ideas Jackie...I will probably make a lentil savoury loaf and take half. I certainly like.
Yes the Diamond award is for 1 year at target weight.
Glad the SW principles are holding good for you...I think once we've used them they become second nature to us.
Have fun in Eastbourne...just along the coast from me. You'll see the vendors are on the pier again...still have to do the repairs but at least it's open for business again.

Day #11

After making it through 1/2 of the day I really gave in last night. Ate a large portion of spaghetti with NOT a SW sauce and had an extra dessert, bread, and snack. YIKES!! But jerked myself back up on that narrow road and planning on staying there!!

Things with Dennis are still the same and it is so hard to just "wait". But food certainly does not help so I must keep thinking that.

Janet~~so glad things were better yesterday.

Hope you are all having a great day. Hugs to all!

Mona~~SC

Diamond award eh? Isn't that for remaining in your goal range for a certain time? Fantastic achievement! emoticon
At the taster sessions I used to go to there were always lots of sweet things on offer - we liked to take a rice, tinned fish and vegetable dish for something different (plus we could have the leftovers later!)
Staying a fairly steady weight since leaving my group but still following the SW principles. The slow carb plan hasn't really come off although I now have lots more beans with my meals.
Enjoy your day

Thanks Mona...saw the dentist again today and thankfully the gum is looking better now.
Glad you had a nice luncheon and the food was what you were able to enjoy. emoticon

Jackie...well done for completing the 5K...however you did it, you did!! Now back to brass tacks again!!

I didn't go to group today for my weigh in as I was at the dentist. Hopefully will go next week...and should receive my diamond award!! We also have a taster session...what to make?

Went to my luncheon yesterday and they served hamburgers. But they had salad and fruit so I do not think I went too much over. Stayed on track the rest of the day.

Thank you for the prayers. It is a rough time right now but my family, my friends, and God will see me through. Hugs!!

Janet~~So sorry about your sore gum. Hope today is better and that you will be feeling fine soon.

Mona - Big round of applause. Congratulations!! You have been really focussed and I'm so glad for you. emoticon

Janet - Good luck at the dentist. I have a lovely dentist, who has looked after our family since the children were tiny but I'm still not that keen on what it entails. Hope all is ok.

Mini-celebration here...I'm back at my lowest weight for several years. I've wobbled up and down over the last 2-3 weeks but I'm hoping I can get into that last 3 lbs to achieve target.
Logging my food, being 'salt' aware and I'm going to try to find time to 'blog' daily. I'm worse on the days I don't do it...... Confession being good for the weight and the soul it seems.

Sunny here this am. After the mizzy day yesterday, what a delight!

Happy Tuesday! emoticon

Wishing you great success for your weigh in tomorrow...I know you'll let us know how that goes.
Praying for the situation for you and Dennis...I know it's a worry with such a distance between you.

It was pretty chilly here this morning - 12C = 53F. I would have loved to switch the heating on but...it is still October!! We really have to do something about the draughty windows here and we need longer curtains to help too! Difficult when you're only renting a house. Anyone used the plastic film that can be put over the glass? it reads well.
I have two appointments at the dentist next week, hopefully the antibiotics will have cleared the soreness in the gum area. If so I shall miss my Wednesday weigh in...

Hope we all have an excellent week ahead!! emoticon

I am doing Day #7 and feeling stronger again. Making it through those few challenge days has shown me that I can keep focused!!

Tomorrow will be my first weigh-in.

It was really chilly here this morning. I go to early services and it was only 41. My apartment was nice and warm though and since we will be back into the 80's I did not turn on the heat.

Talked with Dennis yesterday~~he is not good at all. Going to keep praying a bit more as I still do not have a definite leading.

Diane~~I have really cut down on snacking. Especially in the evening. Doing a sugar-free cocoa or a nice cup of tea. I do eat my Italian Ice early in the evening but that has been it!

Donna~~Chinese is my very favorite. I would love to find one that is compatible with SW.

Jackie~~I plan my Tuesday luncheons as days that I can relax and enjoy food and fellowship. It was great last week because everything fit in perfectly with SW. Now will see how this Tuesday goes! But I am planning times that I know I will be the off program. And we do have to live for sure!!!!!

Irene~~Hope you continue to feel better and get your needed rest. emoticon

Mona that is a beautiful pic of you...yes I know it was a few years ago but the way you're working you'll be there again!! Day 6 already!! I'm so glad SW is working for you again and you sound so strong doing your 100 day plan too!
The twins are in grandma's firm control!! Softie grandma doesn't seem to work with my two!
Good to hear that your consultants report was a good one. Praying for you and Dennis...I know these days aren't easy for you to handle.

Diana...hum...snacks do tend to be either salty or sweet. What to do? I just try to eat sufficient at meal times and then I don't feel the need to snack. You could try some natural nuts...they can be an HexB choice.

Irene...remembering you in your hard days. I think our clothes are a good indicator even if we don't get on the scales! Hoping you're sleeping better now.

Donna, that's amazing that you have a compatible Chinese place...!!

Jackie...you're right, we do have to live...I really got into that yesterday!! Back on plan today though!

I had a lovely day out yesterday in a nearby town...we had a meal and a rather decadent dessert!! Like Mona we've had rain today...it's supposed to be back to sunshine tomorrow though.

Rained pretty hard until about midnight but now it is sunny, windy and cooler. May get into the 40's tonight.

Sorry - I've been a bit of a stranger but work is very busy. Lots of Year 6 worried Mums trying to find the right secondary schools and lots of Year 10s needing exam help. Hopefully it will ease after half term.

Mona - You are doing great! Your posts really inspired me to keep digging in.

Irene - A Get Well and Congrats on finding new determination. Hang in there!

Donna - I'm doing some of the Jessica Smith vids on youtube. It has added a bit of variety.

Janet - I agree about the need for snacks if I haven't eaten enough. The evening is bad for me if my daytime meals have been irregular and now it seems I have to cut savoury snacks right down or out.

My blood pressure was up today at my regular GP visit :( and as I'm trying to stay off meds as long as I can, I've promised him I'll tighten up as much as I can on salt intake (NOTE: This is 'Twiglet' lady talking here!).

I turned to the twigs when the hospital warned me off anything sugary and I needed more to nibble than fruit. However, now I have a salt/sodium limit, it is cheerio to mini-cheddars too.

This week is going to take some determination but I'll start reading labels again and clearing temptation from the cupboards...........

I can do this!!

Have a good weekend, Everyone. emoticon

Glad you are hanging in there Irene. It can be very hard but always remember WE CARE!
We are all finding the plan worthwhile even if challenging at times.

I am so lucky to have a chinese takeaway locally that makes SW free food as they will cook without fat if you tell them you are following SW, my consultant arranged this. emoticon

I feel I am not doing enough exercise though although I am always busy and walk almost everywhere at speed (if I can).

So pleased its Friday tomorrow. emoticon emoticon emoticon
