They are about the size of a cherry tomato - and are sweet enough to eat raw

Are these greengages?

We picked about 8 1/4 pounds of these small sweet greeny-gold plums today (and left many more on the tree, so might go back again another day!)

Are they greegages?
Or if not, what are they?

I'm yo-yoing around the 11 stone mark

Need something to kick-start the downward trend again

Good luck Bob -- if all goes according to plan you should be able to enjoy Christmas without feeling too guilty!

Re: How old are you and how should you feel ???

There is no rule everyone is different!

Re: Weight loss group 2012

Another pound down this week :)) I am now just on 11 stone -- yayy!!!

Time to adjust my target from "under 11 stone" to "under 10 stone" !!

Hope it doesnt take me another 18 months ofups and downs to reach it this time!

Maybe i should aim for 10 1/2 stone by Christmas ?
