Last Monday I weighed 13 stone 3.8 pounds, and today I weigh 13 stone 4.0 pounds, so I've gained 0.2 pound this week. I had a couple of meals out in the week, and also ended up eating a bit more on Sunday (yesterday) - so I'm relieved that I didn't gain more.
I will be away for the next 3 Mondays, so please look out for Prin's name, (Prin) as she will be posting the Monday weigh-ins on 23rd & 30th November, and also on 7th December). If you click 'follow' and Prin's name then you would be notified of when she posts the thread, but otherwise she will be posting it before 7am as usual, so it should be easy to find - it will have the same title as above with the current date in brackets.
My trip away will involve quite a bit of travelling and is a mixture of business and pleasure - so I think it will be challenging for my weight loss goals. I will therefore try my best to maintain my weight, and I'll be back for the Monday weigh-in on 14th December, and hope to work hard when I get back to be in the 12's by Christmas. That is my plan, and I'm sticking to it!
Reminder of how this thread works: If you weigh-in with us in this weigh-in thread, then one or more of the Fab 5 will respond to you. Some Mondays there may only be a couple of us around, as we do have other commitments, but we will do our very best to ensure that everyone is responded to at some point in the day and/or evening.
The Fab 5 are:
Prin (who will lead the thread on 23rd & 30th November and 7th December)
Ruth_Canal_Runner (who does our stats too)
Lowcal (Me) (I'll be back to lead the thread on 14th December) (I'm here today also)
To everyone out there, if you're new, and fancy joining us, you are very welcome! Just pop in and introduce yourself and share your starting weight (if you want to), plus any goals you are hoping to achieve on your weight loss journey.

p.s. I will send a reminder thread mid week to remind people to look out for Prin's name for the next 3 Monday weigh-ins. I'm here today, and I'll be back to lead the weigh-in on 14th December. Thanks to Prin and the other Fab 5'ers (Suzybenj, Moreless and Ruth_Canal_Runner) for everything you do.
