Last Monday I weighed 13 stone 4.0 pounds, and today I weigh 13 stone 3.8 pounds, so I've lost 0.2 pound this week. I had hoped to lose 1 pound, but I'll take 0.2 pound, as it's a loss, and I feel good about that. I've managed to keep to my healthy eating plan this week, and also done plenty of walking, but I didn't do as much strength exercises, so I hope to do more of those this week. I'm aware I'm going to have a couple of meals out this week too, but I'm still going to try to see a loss on the scales for next week's weigh-in, so I hope to choose wisely for those meals out.
Reminder of how this thread works: If you weigh-in with us today, then one or more of the Fab 5 will respond to you, and we will do our best to ensure that everyone is responded to at some point in the day and/or evening.

Some of you may have noticed that Candystripe is no longer in the Fab 5 team (although she will continue to be part of the Monday weigh-in group and a very supportive and much loved member). Her internet connection has not been kind to her, and she has decided to step-down from Fab 5 duty. Thank you Candystripe for your kind support up till now, and we really appreciate all you've done.
Moreless - a warm welcome to you as a new Fab 5'er, and we are grateful to you for stepping in - your help is much appreciated, both past, present, and future!
