Disqus for Where Are My Knees

Sunday Summary 71

Sunday, 30 September 2012

As you can see from the photo we have all just arrived back from a lovely weekend away meeting other bloggers as well as it being the first time that the whole of the Where Are My Knees team were able to meet in person. Along with this weekend meetup we have all been enduring hectic schedules of festivals, holidays and other weekends away, but the good news is we're all back and raring to get back stuck into lots of new posts for Where Are My Knees.  We're also excited to have a lovely, fresh new design and we hope you love it as much as we do.

The other good news is that we've now had an opportunity to consider all of the applications for the final member of the team.  We want to thank everyone who took the time to apply (we had over 100 applications!!) and it was such a hard decision to come to. After much deliberation we are really pleased to announce that our new member is... Chris!

Chris will introduce himself tomorrow but you can go an say hello to him on twitter or read a little bit more about him and his incredible weight loss story in the guest post he did for us this time last year.


New Member Update and New Look

Thursday, 27 September 2012

Things have been rather quiet here on Where Are My Knees recently. Team WAMK have been busy going away on holiday and getting new jobs so we've had a little break.

You may remember that way back in August we announced that we were on the hunt for the final member of the team. All four current members of team WAMK are meeting this weekend to look over the submissions and come to a decision about who we will ask to join the team. We hope to make an announcement about this early next week.

As you may have noticed we also have a fabulous new look courtesy of the lovely Gillian. We felt that a shake up of the team members was a good excuse to freshen up the layout of the blog. What do you think?

Much love

Sunday Summary 70

Lauren - For some reason our Sunday Summary last week didn't publish - oops! Here is what would have been my update for this time last week, as without it this weeks update doesn't really make an awful lot of sense...

After reading Sarah's review of Slimfast I decided to give it a go as a bit of a kick-start. It definitely worked and I lost 5.5lbs last week! After tweeting about it I was contacted by Slimfast and offered some more products to review, so I'll be carrying on for another week or so before returning to ProPoints - hopefully in a much better mindset when it comes to eating healthily and making sensible decisions! I had a bit of an indulgent weekend so I'm hoping it didn't undo too much of the good work from last week and that I see another good loss on Friday!
Unfortunately I didn't get another good loss this Friday!! What I didn't count on was a huge increase in social events that involved eating out - work lunches, drinks with colleagues, early birthday celebrations...etc. In the end I decided that trialling Slimfast last week would be a bit redundant - whats the point in being good all day if you know that you're going out for dinner and few drinks in the evening and will struggle to keep track of your calories? I ate as healthily as I could whenever I was out but I will admit to having A LOT to drink over the course of the week which I think is the main reason for a 1.5lb gain. But for not having counted, pointed, tracked or even indeed worried about it too much, I don't think thats such bad going! Sometimes you just have to enjoy life and make the most of spending quality time with friends and family without worrying too much about the scales.
And on that note, we sign off! Gem and Sarah are at Bestival this weekend and no doubt having a wonderful time, and Rosie is in Florida enjoying S'mores Pop Tarts and Jolly Ranchers - along with glorious sunshine!! Lucky things!!
