Hello everyone, I hope you're all well and are pleased with how last week went for you
We've had a really busy and successful morning session and here's the link, if you'd like to add your support and encouragement to those members that posted earlier
Today we have a full complement of Fab5'ers, Lowcal l , Prin , LessToLose , Anon-E-Mouse and myself, with much appreciated back-up from RobLandsdown91 , although LTL has become LimpsaLot, after some disco diva antics, put her hip out of joint! Although, she assures us it's much better today
Remember too, that while we all love to chat to you, we do have busy lives and you may have to wait a while for a reply, but never fear, one of us will make sure to respond to each and every one of you, asap
NB Just another reminder that this thread will be open from midday and the morning post will be closed. Anybody posting in the wrong thread, will not be replied to today, as all of our focus will be on this thread. We will check tomorrow and through the week for any strays, however It doesn't matter what time of day you weigh yourself, it only matters what time you post. By midday, the morning thread was so full, that a lot of us, including me, struggled to access it and that's why we have to post an afternoon/evening thread. Thanks for your co-operation
The spotlight this week is aimed at marco83 , for his amazing story. Marco is a consummate runner and has found that his shrinking girth and weight, have made him believe that the successes he enjoyed in his younger years, could possibly be duplicated. He's also made a fantastic chart, which is a clear, visual reminder of his journey to date
Many congratulations Marco

Note for Newbies:
If you are joining this weigh-in group thread for the first time today, then welcome. Just introduce yourself and share your starting weight (if you feel comfortable to do so) and your initial weight loss goals – setting yourself mini-goals leading to your ultimate weight loss goal, is particularly helpful. You could also make a note of your body measurements. Sometimes the scales stick at a particular weight, but there can be body measurement changes which are very motivating. It’s not all about the scales after all – it’s how you feel in yourself.
If you’ve not already seen it, then take a moment to read the ‘Welcome Newbie’ pack which is a Pinned post (situated on right hand side of homepage).
Also, please remember that the Monday group weigh-in will be posted alternately, week by week, by myself and Lowcal, so maybe follow us both to make sure you don’t miss a posting, or look out for the latest link to the thread, which will be in the Events Section.
Last week I weighed 13st 3lbs and this week I weigh 13st 3lbs, so it's a maintain for me, which, as we all know, is much better than a gain!
I received a fitbit this week, as a very early birthday present and have found it amazingly motivating. I'm going to love logging the extra K's for the Kilometre Zero challenge
I joined Ruth_Canal_Runner's Strength September Challenge and have been absolutely useless! I have managed to make my chart now, so pledge to ensure that this week, I'll actually be able to fill some of it out! Sorry Ruth!
If anyone is thinking of Re-booting, then here is a link to the Re-boot Challenge:
N.B. To be counted in this week’s stats, you need to post your weight before 6pm on Friday 16th September, so that Anon-E-Mouse (stats woman extraordinaire) can include you! Would all ‘Late Weighers’ post in this thread, please.
Here's to this afternoon/evening being as successful and motivating as this morning was!
