So i was wondering whether or not their would be any of you fantastic wollies interested in some group motivation.... in anticipation of their upcoming nupitals. O:o) :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll :o)ll I was thinking that those of us with winter nupitals (October - December) could motivate each other with our toning/weight loss goals and keep each other on track, if anyone was interested. Its the perfect time to start really toning and getting to grips with all things diet and fitness related. O:o)

I'm in. Getting married 31st December. Went on a shake diet and lost nearly 3 stone, i reckon I have back on at least a stone. Too scared to weigh myself and so annoyed that I let myself go again. So I am totally up for it. How should we go about it. Weekly Weigh-ins? Do an exercise plan??? Lets go Winter Wollies :o)ll

Monday sounds good :) Im not exactly sure how much I have till target as I have avoided the scales for ages. I had 1 stone to go but reckon Ive bout 2 stone now >:o( Im not great with healty food. I might route out my old ww books too and follow that. Or just try to eat healty. Mayb we should set a goal of doing exercise 3 times a week. It could be a walk, or 10 mins of floor exercises, anything at all... What you all think? Lookin forward to this now.

OMG... i do apologies ladies, i've been off WOL all week long because I haven't been in work due to an entirely frozen neck I obtained somewhere between being a stepford wife 2 be last friday night, then hairdressing and dress shopping on saturday. I ended up in the doc on sunday and came ouut with a neck brace :weep feeling better now, although i could be another stone up with all the eating i've done to compensate for the nausa from the pills ;o( Is anyone involved in a gym? or doing a regular exercise class??? That would obviously affect results compared to who wouldn't be going down that strict line..... Lets god Winter Wollies :o)ll
