    14st 3.2lb this morning! That's broken the 200lb barrier. Probably temporary though and it will go up again for the official weigh day tomorrow!

    Well done, blazer! After a week on Slim Fast, I at last lost a pound and a half today ... which puts me at the very top of my SW target range. I'm going back on Wednesday so need to stay there. Will have to be very careful tomorrow - socially distanced garden gathering with friends where we are supporting a local business (that's my excuse, anyway) and having afternoon tea delivered.

    I stuffed myself at a friend's yesterday but today is Fast Day. Starving already.

    Didn't weigh this weekend because we had a bit of a feast on Saturday night. Congratulations to losers! :)

    Or even better, empty your lungs altogether. Oh no! That would decrease your volume and cause less upthrust.
    I find I weigh less after a bath than before. I don't know why.

    Well done to all trying to lose weight. Very hard to change habits so I admire your determination.

    Congratulations to all who have lost.
    As expected no weight loss this week :(, as I had some last week and so expect it will be another 2-3 weeks before I will see any. :rolleyes:

    I've lost just over a pound in the last few days. We've been having fresh fruit for dessert most days and I'm eating 3 dried apricots each day to, ahem, speed up digestion.

    Going by past attempts, teh combination of my 'lazy thyroid' combined with my age means my weight loss is slow.

    Oh i will.

    Mine has slowed down too @Lara mfl 05.
    I'm keeping going with the gym and swim though. I actually did some (very gentle) weights today. Feeling good for the moment so hope I don't sieze up completely later on!

    You keeping up your water inatke @Aquamarina? I find it helps when you're hungry. At least the frequent trips to the loo take your mind off the hunger...

    The heat here is making exercise difficult. Far too hot to run anywhere, and really unpleasant at the gym this morning, the air conditioning being inadequate to cope with the temperature. The outdoor pool was heaving and the indoor pool not much better. I think I'm just going to have to accept that exercise is just not possible for the next few days.

    I set myself up for that one!

    You graciously refrained from mentioning the weight of the grime I removed.

    Congratulations to all the losers.

    My husband's taken to going out for a bike ride after dark, when it's cooler.

    It isn't really cooler, that the problem, or I'd go for a run
