Moving in over here girls, the old pad was a tad crowded!!!

Aye!!! Thursday is my official DOD anyway!!

Think I've maintained this week. If I've time after covering the group tonight I'll see for sure!

It's cold here but no snow thank fuck

Ria, why did dh have to drive there to be turned away? That must be soul destroying, does he have no permanent post? Dh was told today their jobs are all at risk during 'relocation of posts' whatever that means. Great.

ladyarwenevenstar Thu 06-Dec-12 16:59:39

FHF - DH is having trouble finding a permanent job as he is waiting for more tests, and this contract was advertised as 3 days for the next 3 weekends, and £15 per hour, so even though it was so far away he took it on. Catering is a really crap trade round here, and it's quite usual to be treated like shit (turns out it wasn't the hourly rate he was expecting either - if we'd known that last night he wouldn't have even set off this morning.) I'm not sure why he was turned away, I think they had probably over-ordered in temping staff They sent home 2 others toohmm

I hope I can gatecrash? From reading other threads its been suggested this is where all the slimming worlders congregate?

I joined yesterday morning in the bid to lose around 2.5 stone of cake baby weight and need mid week motivation as its usually a few days after I start diets/weigh myself I start to slip.

Thanks all grin

Hello ishallcallyousquishy and welcome to the DoDers grin We are all sort of following SW on here, there's loads of support and these girls are fantastic smile
We all weigh in on the day of doom and someone coordinates all the weigh ins into the big fat list. We used to do it on a wed night but as you can see there's a move to make it thurs.
Have you done SW before? Or is this all new to you? Are you going to a real group as well? I do but some of the others on here are following it at home, so this is their group.

Totally pooped tonight!! Maintained this week - am ok with that after the headward fall into the cracker box!!

Welcome squishy!! smile

IShallCallYouSquishy Fri 07-Dec-12 07:44:05

SlimJim I'm going to a RL group so I will use whatever my weight there on a Wednesday is as my weigh in weight here too if that's ok? I've done SW a before but it was years ago but looks like the principle is still pretty much the same with EE. My problem is I don't use my syns, for example yesterday I only had 3, Wednesday 4.5 and I know I need to use them. If I have some choccie or anything though I can't stop and no alcohol as I'm breast feeding angry feeling positive though as in fee up of looking like a frumpy blob in clothes that don't fit me. I'm only 29, I want to look nice not mumsy!

Good luck this week everyone thanks

Well done FHF especially with the cream cracker encounter.

Welcome squishy (love the nane...every time I read it I finish it off with"and he shall be my squishy")

Could your use your syns in a savoury way like extra cheese or mayonnaise? Options are a good way to have a chocolate hit but without a bar of chocolate?

Am going to Asda later to stock up on super free to help me shovel the right things in. I know its not recommended to lose weight when up the duff but it is possible because I have so much to lose

ladyarwenevenstar Fri 07-Dec-12 09:24:38

Huff, I was thinner and healthier when DS3 was born than at the start of my PG. He is now 5 and I am notblush. So long as you are eating healthily you aren't restricting any food groups.

ladyarwenevenstar Fri 07-Dec-12 09:26:02

and eating mindfully is far better for you than shovelling in crap (do as I say not as I dowink)

IShallCallYouSquishy Fri 07-Dec-12 10:30:17

Huff extra cheese or options sound like a good idea. I can happily shovel cheese in! I know the principle is that I have to use them else on a day/week that I do then my body won't be used to the extra calories. I'm making a meatloaf today so the sausage meat will be some good syns! I'm BLW with my 6.5mth old so as much as SW is for the whole family I'm still having to do 2 versions as don't really want her on low fat. I'm liking that its nice and easy to adapt though. So for lunch we are having pizza toast with ham and pineapple but I'm having nimble and she's having good old Hovis white.

Hehe, someone else who likes Nemo smile my DD got nicknamed Squishy due to it.

ChocolatesSnowAngel Fri 07-Dec-12 13:02:15

IShallCallYouSquishy i have name envy envy

Welcome to the thread and watch the weight fall off.

When I started I didn't use all my syns either, as long as you do use some it should be ok. smile

Just in from a Christmas night out with my lovely sisters! I over indulged slightly......

Superfree and speed foods from tomorrow onwards!

IShallCallYouSquishy Sat 08-Dec-12 18:51:14

Mmmm it's steak night in the Squishy house tonight. There's a nice bit of fillet with my name on it on the side in the kitchen. Jacket spud instead of the usual chips and a roasted pepper stuffed with homemade egg fried rice, feta and sultanas. Who would of thought I could still have my Saturday steak? Oil for steak from my HE B and feta from my A.

I'm finding ways to use my syns though haven't really eaten much today so need to make sure I eat enough.

Hope everyone has a good Saturday.

ladyarwenevenstar Sat 08-Dec-12 23:42:10

sounds nice squishy.

christmas ham, egg and chips here (which is FAB because I have fancied it for a couple of days since someone had it in the novel I was reading) - garage freezer blew last night. Luckily I defrosted the kitchen fridge freezer this morning, and as it had space in (without all the ice!) I decided to do the outside one too, and I'm glad I did. Have been cooking sausages and chicken breasts, and DH said the ham was OK to cook too. Am really glad it didnt go to waste as its the most expensive one I've ever bought. thankfully didn't have to throw away too much.

fecking tree up.

Monday again all!

Have woke with a dose after being at Christmas market in the rain yesterday.
My food has been atrocious all weekend so starting today it needs to be mostly Superfree, even to hope for a maintain this week. Am raging at myself.

Would need to get out of bed and wake the kids too. We were all wrecked last night and we allowed them to stay up to watch Xfactor.

No idea what my food for today is apart from pineapple, melon and cherry tomatoes blush

ladyarwenevenstar Mon 10-Dec-12 09:40:40

morning, sniffly here too.

conquered the ironing mountain yesterday, and we are meant to be cleaning our conservatory and moving the furniture today, but H seems to have idlebastarditis and I really don't feel like doing it by myself when he said he would help...

ChocolatesSnowAngel Mon 10-Dec-12 12:12:59

Afternoon, It's my birthday today so have to say I have eaten really bad things all weekend whilst out and about celebrating. It hasn't stopped yet either, out Tues, Wed, Fri, Mon, Wed then its Christmas....shoot me now! grin

Huffpot Mon 10-Dec-12 16:23:36

Lady did your DH recover from his illness and help?

Choc Happy birthday!!!!!!

I'm in the throes of bloody morning sickness so am def not on plan - I feel bleugh 90% of the time so while trying to be semi good am not suceeding as fruit is not particularly appealing! However did do a good walk of about 3 miles. I think I'll just have to keep up the walking and get the motivation to get out in the cold nights and go to the pool.

Am on a countdown but when thats finished may just do SW at home as £5 is a lot when I AM going to be putting on weight

SlimJimBra Mon 10-Dec-12 16:39:10

Happy Birthday Choc smile
I've had a bad food day too, being stressed and not having any healthy food in the house is not a good combination blush tesco delivery coming this evening so should be back on track after 8pm grin

kid Mon 10-Dec-12 17:25:48

Happy birthday Choc, hope you are having a great day.

I put on a pair of jeans this morning but they were too tight sad
Its my own fault and maybe its what I needed to teach me that stuffing my face will have consequences. So, I am going back to basics. No big fancy meals for me or SW recipes that take forever to make and millions of specialist ingredients. I will literally be doing pasta, rice, potatoes, vegs, meats. No biscuits, chocolates, crisps, wine etc, I am going to be good.
What ever I lose between now and Xmas will give me that little bit of freedom to over indulge for a couple of days.

I really don't want to be buying bigger clothes, I want to fit into my smaller clothes!

ladyarwenevenstar Mon 10-Dec-12 17:53:21

happy birthday choc.

sounds lke me kid. I have managed to stay in the jeans I have since my "comfy" pair wore out, but I am fairly limited to what I can wear. I'll see what the damage is on Thursday...

am geting stressy about christmas now which is silly, but I would have been happier if H still had that contract<sigh>

I am doing an extra shift at work tomorrow - I am covering the office for the afternoon! My stomach is churning with anticipation.

Hi all smile

Am just getting ready for work here, am expecting it to be quiet, have quite a few off on holidays.

Am also loaded with the cold and feel rotten.
Am torn - should I weigh tonight (looking st a 2lb+ gain) or try my best between now and Thursday and take whatever happens by then.

I think I'm back on track today and can do ok til thursday.

Though dh and I are out all day tomorrow and Thursday Christmas shopping, will most likely include lunch...

Dunno what to do now!!!

kid Tue 11-Dec-12 22:48:36

Try your best between now and thurs I say, that's what I would do.
I've been good today, well actually I haven't eaten much at all which probably isn't good.

B-2 weetabix, milk, tea
L- chopped banana, apple, satsuma
2 hifi bars
D- peppers, onion, garlic, chopped tomatoes and pasta.

DH offered me a Chelsea bun cake and a glass of wine, both of which I refused.
Left over dinner for lunch tomorrow so hopefully, I'll stick to plan again.

ladyarwenevenstar Tue 11-Dec-12 22:55:44

I went shopping with DH before work this morning. No food was eaten as I had a crappy anxious night again and nearly threw up brushing my teethsad
spent a ridiculous amount on crappy bits and drawing stuff for the stockings. Just my Dad to buy for <bewildered> and a few random bits for the boys, then something for DH and I if the left-over budget allows, then I'm done and we're I'm onto the tedious business of wrapping. DS1 is so easy to buy for because he's so eccentric, DS2 likes meerkats and lifeboats (not so easy) and DS3 really only likes ponies (so his presents verge on the girly). Stuck for my Dad though...

Am planning ahead for a good week before xmas - jacket spuds baked, and extra mash and sprouts done for bubble and squeak. I might as well give it a go as I have a freezer full of quorn and I could do with the space for xmas! Will have to sort both of us out after xmas as DH and I are both disillusioned weebles!

I survived the afternoon in the office, and have applied for a new job. A small amount of brightness in a day, before bedtime stresses get me.

Is bee coming backto the thread? <waves just in case>
