It took me a long time to realise that my pattern was going to be bone-achingly slow losses or lengthy plateaus with periods of dropping every day for a while then back to another plateau (16 weeks and more).

Just went to check my broody hens and there is a chick under one of them. Only came home today so not sure when it hatched. Will sort it all out tomorrow morning by which time some more may have hatched.

Went out for lunch, choose vegetable fritata, seriously can't spell that, and salad, enjoyed that but then worried about the dressing, was swimming in it!

All that said, I appear to be in another Doldrum; hovering around 14st12LB and 15st3LB. Think this is holiday treats and slobbery
Hope things are going well for you.
