Hi everyone. Lost you all for a minute there as I accidentally clicked the hide button and had to do a search to find out how to unhide you again!

Welcome back twinkle! grin

Welcome to any newbies. I'm quite active on mfp but am very slack on here I'm afraid! Feel free to add me!

Well I have gone back to low carbing again because as much as I love bread, I think it was physically poisoning me. Well that's what it felt like anyway. I can't just have bread once a day. Once I'm in a bread eating zone I eat LOTS of it and everything goes to pot. So far since Monday I have lost 7lb by cutting down ony carbs, but it's probably just water weight so I'm not getting too excited lol.

Sonnet Sat 09-Feb-13 13:05:39

Hi, I have just joined Mfp as I really need to do something! I need to loose at least 1 stone 4 ilbs as my first goal. I really need the help and motivation. I eat badly and am so tired all the time it is a vicious circle. Any help or support most welcome x

WiseKneeHair Sat 09-Feb-13 22:09:58

Argh! I posted this afternoon but its disappeared. Never mind, welcome npg1 and Sonnet. Good luck with MFP. I have sent a friend request to npg1 and if you would like to add me Sonnet, I am HappyKite on MFP. They are a great bunch on there, very motivating.
I was going to have my weekend treat of wine and chocolate now, but I've just finished exercising and fancied prunes and Greek yoghurt instead shock what is happening to me? At this rate I'll end up fit and thin. grin

jchocchip Sun 10-Feb-13 07:23:18

Marking place. Mmmmm prunes smile

Never eaten prunes with Greek yoghurt myself WiseKneeHair!

Hope everyone's weekends are ok, it's piddling down with rain here so we're going to the seaside! Had a run yesterday am and walked around the country park with my boys as it was so lovely but today dh is at work now and when he's home we're going straight to Yarmouth to go on Dauntless and then to my mums for tea so no chance if a run today and lots of time in the rain I think sad

Hi everyone and welcome newbies! I'm mrsnecincy on mfp. Not much to report hope to do something in the way of proper excersise today. Spent the last 2 days having a massive clear out and spring clean. Didn't count it but maybe I should as it was knackering!

PinkCustard Sun 10-Feb-13 14:20:50

I'm back from my weekend away and haven't done too badly. Only went slightly over yesterday as we walked round for hours, and am doing ok today. Although I usually try to make Sunday a fast day and won't manage that today.

WiseKneeHair Sun 10-Feb-13 17:55:43

Well done twinkle and hope you had a nice weekend away pink
I've had to use my exercise calories this weekend to keep under which I don't like to do. At least it's encouraged me to exercise more though.
cinnamon hope you enjoyed the seaside and I can recommend prunes and yoghurt, they are yummy. might even make me poo

essexmumma Mon 11-Feb-13 00:47:48

Welcome to all the newbies - i am mummaessex on MFP, please feel to add mesmile

Shred day 3 and loving it still. Hoping weigh in shows my effort in resultsconfused

mrsnec Mon 11-Feb-13 07:34:18

Morning all! Can I have some help please think I'm being a bit thick. I'm trying to have a few low days as have holidays and meals out approaching anyway, sorry if this has been answered before but I got my first telling off for going under yesterday and was on my phone and couldn't file my diary without adding something. Don't have iphone and ap isn't great so I ended up having some oj!to send me over. How do you get rid of the warning? Do I have to do it on desktop version?

Chopstheduck Mon 11-Feb-13 07:53:35

mrsnec, I'm not sure why it's not letting you log it anyway, I'm sure mine does. Maybe you should log in on a computer and check your settings.

I had a funny kind of weekend. Sat we missed lunch then ended up in Beefeater. Yesterday I was saving calories and planning a Chinese feast for dinner, ate the starters and then was stuffed and didn't manage a main course! So we have stir fry for dinner tonight.

Food was nice though, I made a crispy duck with a lovely free range duck we got from a farm we stayed at last October. He was tasty!

I now only have 5 days left til we go on holiday, really need to behave this week.

cinnamon, are you in Norfolk then? I grew up in Gorleston! grin I'm off up there on Friday to drop the kids to my parents.

Ooh, I'm on the Norfolk/Suffolk border. I know Gorleston and Yarmouth! I'm from Norwich originally though.

Lissyfrog Mon 11-Feb-13 12:28:59

Hi all

Just checking in x welcome to the lovely new ladies x please add me same name as on here lissyfrog x

I have soooooo many friends now I'm feeling quite loved x joined this thread about 2 weeks ago and it's been the best thing I did x support and encouragement on MFP and on here has been brill so stop reading this and add me smile x pls x

You should be able to log mrsnec, it just comes up with the warning when you click complete this entry but it still completes it. As far as I know you can't turn it off, it's a permenant thing it seems for under 1200 calories.

I am just inside suffolk Chopstheduck and LittleAbruzzenBear, I live in Brandon at lot of people know it because of High Lodge and Centre Parcs! my brother lives in Norwich as he went to uni there and stayed smile Was a total disaster of a day as they had too many people turn up and weren't letting anyone else on by the time we turned up at 12.30 even though it was open 10-3, dh very upset sad

I'm feeling really fed up today and just want to eat! It's so cold and dh has been a grump all weekend, plus I'm coming up to totm so I'm feeling grumpy myself. It's dss's half term this week instead of next as ds1 and the rest of my minded children so we are having a family day friday when everyone else will be at school and I'm skiving ds1 off for the day blush. Had left over pizza for lunch so will make a cuppa to fill me totally and hope sweet craving goes away! Plus I have some ironing to do so that will help.

[waves] I'm in Beccles!

mrsnec Mon 11-Feb-13 15:59:00

Thanks everyone and that duck sounds yum! Think it was just some strange malfunction then I am going to faff about with my settings though as I'm not sure if I'm sedantry anymore and what will happen if I change it.

PinkCustard Mon 11-Feb-13 19:54:41

Am thinking of giving the Anna Richardson Body Blitz a go. I really need to drastically change my diet as I eat far too much sugar, choc etc (even when watching cals) and it sounds like a sensible healthy eating plan which will hopefully break me out of my bad habits. It will be a drastic change from my usual eating though. Has anyone tried it?
