    well done Lesley that's great!

    Stacey don't let it get to you, just get back on track that's what i'm trying to do as I am losing motivation as well.

    I didn't get to go to weigh in last night as I had an appointment with the church so hopefully i will have lost 1 pound by next week and i can get my award x

    i had a maintain this week which I am disappointed with but I must admit I haven't really been all that on plan. 1 pound to go still to a 2 stone loss. But i bought a recipe book at group last night and I am 100% back on it! Next week I WILL get a loss x

    You are not going to be the fat chunky bridesmaid InDeamland! When are you a bridesmaid and how much do you want to lose?

    Nicole, you will do it this week I am sure :)

    Claire, I was just speaking to my laser hair removal lady about that and she used to work in a salon that did it, people would pay crazy money and she thinks that what actually looses the weight is that you are on a strict diet for 8 weeks, 30 mins exercise every day and then after the 40 minute laser you go on the power plate. She said the power plate is amazing. There isn't any research to state it actually works and it is nearly impossible to melt fat. Hope that helps?

    Do you go to a group lesley? I lost motivation so i decided to start staying to group again and it's got my head back in it. Yes just 1 pound to my 2 stone loss (my goal is a 3 stone loss overall) and weigh in is at 7:30 so fingers crossed as i have been 100% on plan.

    Hope it goes better than you expect Stacey! x

    I am with you Stacey, I gained 1lb this week but it has kicked me into sorting myself out.

    I go to WW Nicole and stay, I love my group it is so positive and I know without them I would have given up a long time ago. I am trying to stay low carb (which I haven't done for 2 weeks). Feel like that is my problem as I am noticing how rubbish I feel after eating certain carbs, although dr thinks wheat is fine for me I don't agree I know how I feel he doesn't. He did a blood test on me for allergies as I was really going through it a while back. I know I am highly allergic to almonds, if someone as much as has one in the office I can't breath. Test came back negative to that but positive to something I can eat with no issues. The dr argued with me that I was wrong and I was fine with almonds which I am shocked by, so basically what I am saying I don't think wheat agrees with me and I don't believe that blood test. The fact I feel so rubbish is making me refocus and fingers crossed for next week.

    I am also #1 at self sabotage and even though I know I can do it I hold myself back. I have to be kinder to myself but I really struggle with that. My personal trainer is really trying to help me so at least I have someone (not on the forums I mean) on my side. As soon as I start doing well my OH buys me food - if I don't eat it he gets all stroppy with me. I have told him numerous times I don't want him to and he makes me feel bad but it makes no difference.

    Wow this turned into way more than I wanted but glad to get it off my chest. :)

    How did you get on last night Nicole?

    I think we are all our worst enemies for self sabotage, its exactly what I've done the past couple of weeks, picking up sweets and crisps and telling myself they won't hurt instead of keeping up with all the progress I've been making.

    Lesley for sure you know how you feel, if the wheat is making you feel off then do what you think is right! and Stacey you're right I always self sabotage but then I make up a story about how it couldn't be helped :'D

    I managed to lose 1 pound this week, pretty disappointed as i was 100% on plan so i was expecting a bigger loss but on the other hand I got my 2 stone award! just 1 stone to go to target :) x

    Well done Nicole that's great.

    I'm going to try and be really determined for the next month, I'm going to avoid takeaways and eating out, give it my all to stick to plan. If I get tempted have really bad things then I'm going to tell myself I only have 27 days till London and that will be my treat weekend. (I really need to get into a dress before then haha). If I can do that then I know I will be able to stick to plan better than before going forward.

    I love my SW group they are a great bunch, I haven't stopped for group for a few weeks and I think that has been the main difference.

    Thanks Stacey :) not staying to group is actually what was getting in my way so try staying and see if it helps.

    I've just tallied up how long I have left til my dress fitting to see if i can get to target by then and i'm not thinking it's possible. it's 5 weeks with 14 pounds to go which is just under 3 pound a week so it's not very likely :(

    Maybe you could try and SP week, that could boost your loss. Also ask in group see if there is anything anyone could recommend. I've heard cutting out all fizzy drinks can help.

    Thanks ladies
    Massive well done to you Nicole :)

    When I did SW (tried them all) we used to do challenges like 10 speed foods a day or making sure you drink your 2 litres of water a day challenges. Also changing up food is a really good way to give yourself a boost. We can all do it but I think as soon as we put pressure on that doesn't help! I am taking it one meal at a time and not eating between meals up my water intake as well with the heat and sticking to my exercise regime.

    Is it acceptable for the bridesmaid to request that the bride pays for her liposuction so she's not the fat bridesmaid?

    I don't do SW anymore but I just searched it - not sure if this is legit or not so might be worth looking in your book 175 ml of whole milk, 250 semi skimmed 350 ml skimmed


    1 in 3 weeks isn't bad at all and with your mum there you will be back on track in no time.

    What are all your opinions on FYEO photo shoots as wedding presents? I am hoping I will have lost a good amount of weight before our wedding but I don't know if would be a bit tacky or just something thrown in the back of the cupboard kind of thing. I would like to have something though to show the effort I have made? posting here as it is due to my weight loss I am thinking about it but happy to move I not appropriate x
