Hope it arrives today! I am really enjoying using mine. I am aiming for 10000 steps and 30 active minutes per day. I am going trampolining this morning with Pippa and I am not sure if it will register that I am bouncing. Let's find out!

Urgh... Muncher and I have been doing a summer reading quest, today was the last week and meant we needed to go to story time. We did, our names went into the box and muncher won a grand prize. It was the best prize out of two for him, but I could do without an enormous gift hamper from a local artisan chocolatier in the house.

Nougat was yum. Off to gym tonight.

Argh, the temptation! Why couldn't it have been a fruit hamper, damn them!

Did it register the bouncing Nix?

How is everyone else doing?

I had a few bad days Tues and yesterday – was working in London Tuesday and after a bad night’s sleep with Daniel and a 6am start, I caved when waiting to get the train home at the end of the day and bought a Croque Monsieur and a chocolate pastry twist, followed by a full dinner when I got home! Yesterday I had four rounds of toast and butter for breakfast and biscuits through the day – wtf?!

But, I went to the gym last night and did a full weights, cardio and swim workout and felt loads better, and then had a lovely homemade healthy lentil, squash and spinach rice dish for dinner. I think it’s a downfall of doing a ‘regular’ weigh-in - I was on for a 2lb loss on Monday but put a lb back on over the weekend, making it only a 1lb loss, so I think I felt a bit disappointed in myself. Plus I’m very close (3lbs away) to getting to the weight I was immediately after having Daniel and I’m getting frustrated that those 3lbs aren’t going quicker (but that weight loss was caused by six months of being sick so wasn’t achieved in a healthy manner and it all piled back on once he was out and I could eat again). So, I think I started to give up this week because I was annoyed I wasn’t closer to the stupid figure I’ve got in my mind (and that figure isn’t even quite half-way to where I need to get to in the end, but it’s a milestone on the way that I’m impatient to get to).

I just need to relax and go with the flow of my weight-loss journey…1lb, one week, at a time!

I'm still in the honeymoon woo isn't it exciting seeing the numbers go down stage. But, CT, I've been where you are before so you have all my sympathy and a kick up the bum! What's done is done. All you can change is what you do in the future.

I'm ridiculously target oriented (generally, not just for dieting) - my next milestone is my weight being a round number of st. Then 5kg lost. Then being a round number of kg. Then a stone lost....etc. I find it helpful to congratulate myself!

Yay but groan for chocolate prizes, applause for bouncing and being back on the horse, and hear hear for being goal orientated.

I think I need new scales. I weigh myself at the same time of day and all that (first thing in the morning) but my scales had me gaining a pound or two a day all week which I just know isn't true. I gave them a good shaking and took the batteries out and started again this morning and I'm back to where I should be (have gained nearly a stone at 23 weeks pg) but it's so frustrating to get on the scales in the morning and have it throw out a number 5 or 6 lbs higher than it should be and not get bummed out by it.

Glad I'm not the only one setting goals in my head...I guess you have to set them to give yourself motivation...but it just doesn't work quite so well when you don't achieve them or take your time getting there :)

Your scales sound a bit confusing RR! Sounds like new ones might be a good idea - no need to give yourself any extra stress in the morning!

Has anyone read the email with 15 low cal slow cookie recipes or something from MFP? Some really yummy sounding good, very keen to try some out.

Still no Fitbit. Will be phoning up tomorris to find out where it is. They said I had to wait 10 days before I could ring. Grrrrrr.

Sounds like everyone is doing really well. CT I definitely know that feeling when the weight gain starts to reduce and the temptation starts to get to you. Keep going though - I keep telling myself that as long as I keep eating well and exercising, in the long run I won't be a fatso like I am now! I have lost 1lb a week the last 2 weeks so that makes it half a stone. I figure that if I can keep going at 1lb a week I'll be a healthy weight by Christmas!! Of course it would be lovely to be there by May, but it's not going to happen but that doesn't mean it isn't worth sticking to. My Dad is poorly with heart failure at the moment and it has definitely given me a kick up the bum - he's 65 and he and my mum can't look after the boys for more than an hour - I don't want to be like that and I don't want to set that example for my kids.

Sadly the fitbit doesn't register trampolining as an active activity. Just registered each bounce as a step I think!

Whee, 2lb from last week, plus extra 2lb but more - no Thursday collapse, and 2 runs, so target met :)

I've got one week left on the diet (I said I'd support DH on his diet until end of Jan) and have 3lb of Christmas weight to lose, so hoping that will go, but not too worried.

We have a bit of a crazy week this week (friends over Mon, Tues, Kids swimming Weds, In laws Fri-Sun), so this week I'm aiming for no Thursday collapse and one run.

No loss this week, but no gain either (that's me trying to be positive!). A few bad days early last week and I just couldn't pull it back despite getting it right for the rest of the week. Oh well :)

More kicks up the bum to keep going please!
