Thanks everyone, I guess I'll just have to be more patient :-) Its funny though because although I've apparently lost 5 pounds, you wouldn't know it to look at me :-( Don't you just love it when you diet for ages and people say to you "oooh, you look as if you've lost weight - I can see it in your face". Great, I've been dieting like a demon to lose weight in my face :-)

another tip is to measusre yourself - waist hips chest and thigh knee/calf upper arm note it down then measure it monthly and notice how your body is changing (especially ifyou are exercising) rather than concentrate on pounds as it can be quite complex to work out how much weight you are losing when you are toning up and adding more muscle.

Thanks, I've tried that too. I don't seem to losing inches either :-(

Hi Everyone

I have just found this thread and would love to join this club. Please can I give you updates on my progress?
The idea of doing this is scary because I am now accountable to other people and not just myself. Definitely gives me the motivation to go out running more than I have done.
Just to let you know, I am about one and a half stone overweight. I have applied for Bath HM and London marathons and waiting to find out if I am in. Better start training I suppose.

Many thanks

Hi Panther and welcome. Please give us your updates whenever you like. Most of us do a weekly weigh-in on a chosen day and record our losses (or otherwise!). Good luck.

Hi all

I will come right out and say it.

I am a wuss.

I cannot face going out tonight as very rainy and cold. I will forsake all garlic bread as a penance.

I am shifting my training to Fri/sat/sun instead.

Hi to all the new members, Positive thoughts to michelle.

Good luck for tomorrow Sassie. Where is the church you are going for. My local has a vacancy :-)

Josie, I thought I was on my own round here. Reduced to posting on the Dark Side thread again.

Eat your garlic bread, it will help keep the cold out.

I'm skiving off running tonight because it's my wedding anniversary. Not an excuse you can use everyday, although we do have two of them, for reasons I won't bore you with.

Yes I have lost 2 lb since last week,
excuse for a celebration, get the drinks in.

Oh dear that will put it back on again,
not fair is it........

Hi Glenn

How many years, Benz and I are both 37 and married 10 years. If you are either of those it would be well spooky.

Gaz well done on weight loss.
30/10/2002 at 18:44
Josie, it's only four years, although we are both a little older than 37. Perhaps more than a little in my case...

Gaz, what's that on your chin? Not baby badger blood I hope?
30/10/2002 at 18:46
As if I would Glenn, bite a little baby badger, he he he he .......

Thanks Josie, hard work isn't it....
30/10/2002 at 18:51
Wouldn't know, haven't lost a damn thing for months :-(
30/10/2002 at 18:56
Sorry to hear that Josie, as long as you havn't put anything on thats the thing :-)
30/10/2002 at 18:58
Congratulations on you Anniversary Glenn,
are you doing anything special ?
30/10/2002 at 19:04
Wouldn't life be great if we could lose weight for the things we don't eat i.e. we get offered a cream cake, we use all our self control to say no, but do we 'see' any benefit to saying no - nope. If we say no to naughty but nice food we should lose say a 1lb, wouldn't that be great :-)

Josie - how much weight have you got to lose? You look really slim in your photo.

30/10/2002 at 19:06
Ah Susi, I am one of those people who lose it around the face. What you can't see is the surplus 14 lbs slung about my bum and thighs. I have lost 2 and a half stone since January, just one more stone to go
30/10/2002 at 19:09
wow, well done, I'm the same, lose it on my face, all I can say is you hide it well. I take it your dieting too?

30/10/2002 at 19:20
Not really, Ive been ramping up the training and hoping it would shift the weight. I have lost inches from my thighs and waist but no loss in weight.

The fat on my bum and thighs is getting annoying as I can feel it when I run. If it doesn't start shifting soon I will have to diet AND I HATE IT.
30/10/2002 at 19:24
Josie, I'm not allowed to say where I'm going (very hush hush, the C of E). Where is your church with a vacancy?
30/10/2002 at 19:26
tell me about it, I hate it too.
