On another note - can anyone tell me the pps in a mini mars bar - I was thinking 3 but I didn't have the bag to get the nutritional info from.

Thanks

I was going to suggest home made garlic bread made with wholemeal bread, butter and crushed garlic and parsley ! I love the sound of the bagel though as well!


Well if I lose 2 pound tomorrow, I will have made 7 pounds by the Bank Holiday a slow and steady loss, I dont think I will lose 2 pounds I will be down though but not that much! see what tomorrow brings.


Lainy thanks for that information on exercise! Im going to use my heartbeat as well to work it out! I am finding exercise is getting easier now so upping the pressure now. I walked to a near by park yesterday they have free exercise machines you can use, I can feel it in my legs today

Is that the really small ones! or the ones slightly bigger but smaller than the normal size ones! I know I pointed ones same as a marsbar but tesco brand as 5pp so say the mini ones would be 3 all right!

On that note...off to do a aerobics dvd. just gotta finisha a few emails and tend to my farm (farmville addict)

nope but its an interesting one for the month of June......will fit in nicely with my next two mini goals

* to get my 5% weight loss (1lb to go)
* to lose 1 stone (7lb to go)

love the motivation so I am piggy backing on her idea

Hey all,
Its my birthday today so my OH is bringing me for dinner tonight. Im going through the menu online so that I can make the best decision in advance. Can anybody tell me if risotto is high? As always my eye is drawn to all of the bad choices but Im determined to stay within my points.
Congrats on all of the losses I have my WI tonight!

Hey All!

I'm back on the radar-exams complete, house moved and afew other big things acomplished in the last few weeks!!

Anyways I was the bright spark who initiated the -7lbs for June Bank hol a month ago...

Unfort I went mental with chocolate for my exams so if i'm gonna get there I have 3 days to loose 3lbs which is a tad optimistic but I've a big weekend ahead so I'm just gonna be super good until then and see what happens

On another note, nite out after exams was my first big nite in a while and it just felt so amazing to hear all the compliments-better than any figure on the scale for me!!

Well done to everyone doing so well and welcome to all the newbies!
