You've got the SMARTs!

Hey Dolls!  Firstly apologies for my absence.. technical troubles with blogger along with the last of my bronchitis and illness made me abandon you.. however I'm now back and officially signed off by the doc to get back in the pool from Monday so I feel another challenge is needed to get me focussed on summer!!! All aboard the wagon!


My kinda dolls...

Myself and Mr. Q have been in cahoots and there's some motivating and fun stuff in this one! Theres a MAD MEN theme to it! I know, I know... It's going to last until the June Bank holiday which is in 9 weeks! NINE weeks! HOW did that happen?


Just hanging...

And whether its a bikini you want to fit into for a summer holiday.. or there's a summer wedding coming up, be nice to show up that aunt who always says you had a 'lovely face' wouldn't it... or you just want to pull on a pair of shorts, go out in the garden and feel good about yourself in them and not the usual uncomfortable, unstylish, unflattering ones! ... then in 9 weeks you could be 9lbs lighter, if not more!




Based on the theory of S.M.A.R.T goal setting... 

S - Specific

M - Measurable 

A - Attainable 

R - Relevant

T - Timely

E - Evaluate

R - Reward


FINAL WEIGH IN!




In case you end up in the Hamptons!

This challenge will focus each week on different aspects of your weight loss journey and hopefully make you think about things slightly differently! I'm really looking forward to it.. my mind has been out of the game slightly for a couple weeks and following you lot on here always gets me focussed!


So.. sign up below 

1. add a comment - 'I'm in!'

2. type in how much you want to lose this week.. be realistic.. and aim for it.. keep it in your mind... -1lb

and 

3. SAY 'YES' if you're in it to get a SILVER 7 in 7 weeks times! That's half a stone! 
    There'll be rewards* too!!!  (*prizes!) You've got to be in it from the start to win!

Find your inner 'Joan' or 'Peggy' and set her free! 

and lads... everybody loves a Don Draper! Just sayin'

Doll x


Cause I know how you all lounge about in your silk dresses looking all moody! ;P

    Need the help, Easter holidays have broken my streak of healthy eating. Been at ww for 5 weeks and got my silver 7, scared to go back after 2 weeks and too much chocolate :-(

    1. aw don't be scared to go back! You're better off facing the music.. you'll get lots of support..trust me you're not the only one to dread going to face their leader.. I've stripped off pretty much EVERYTHING before hand too! Thankfully we're not allowed to weigh naked! Stick with it.. and if you enjoyed it.. then do go back.. I need my meetings some people don't.. but I like the accountability.. plus I've made some good friends at class too.. x

    2. Hiya :-) thanks for that. Went back last week after 2 weeks off and was dreading it. Pit on 2.5 which wasn't as bad as I thought. Been back tracking since Tuesday weigh in, so will let you know my first weeks loss (hopefully) on tuesday.
