How's everyone feeling about tomorrows weigh in? I'm dreading it again as I've had a terrible few days . If I get a chance later I might drag the exercise bike out and do an hour on there watching tv. Got ebaying to do first though.
Thanks for reassurance. Hmmm wonder if any of you live in London as men never give their seats up here! Apart from the nice one on Friday!
Bring on the vile workout gear, by Easter I will be buying a smaller size.
didi i'm sorry to hear that, how disappointing.
Went to a party last night and ate a lot of food, but much less than i would've done. It was mainly stodgy carbs and savouries - my idea of heaven. I find I am a bit of a scientist at all social occassions now observing 'thin' people. I have discovered that they eat less than me and often turn down food!
It's stupid for me to be disappointed, we're not even ttc. An accident is my only hope of another baby but surely we would notice a condom malfunction? Any thoughts on how I could arrange a condom malfunction in a way that is not immediately obvious (because it could take months)? I am joking really but it's very frustrating for me to want another baby so much and him to flatly refuse.
tortoise I've already weighed in this week so I'm feeling fine about it. If you are struggling with the diet is there anything you can change about the times/days you find you struggle with? Like if you are struggling with evening snacking, could you make sure you have plenty of fruit in to snack on, or popcorn is surprisingly low calorie? Or if it's portion sizes for main meals, or eating the wrong thing at main meals then could you look for lower calorie versions of the foods you like to cook so that you can have the portion sizes you want? I know that I like big portions of food so i make a lot of slimming world or weightwatchers recipes because they are made lower fat so I can eat more for the same calorie values iyswim.
Icb Right now in your life I don't think you need to beat yourself up about eating a bit too much chocolate. You can't possibly be eating any more of it than I did at my lowest point last year, be kind to yourself, and just get back in gear whenever you are ready.
Sorry Didi must be hard wanting when other does not
Icb With everything else going on in surprised you not ate all our weight in chocolate be kind to yourself it's been hard few weeks
Sometimes a bad few days seems ti kickstart our bodies and yup it does open your eyed you find self people watching more oh and yes I'm a savoury person to
I find Im not missing chocolate or cake but cheese and sausage rolls well
Tortoise maybe keep diary for week of what you are eating see if there is a pattern if when You are most hungry and not eating means once Yiu start your brain goes ekkk I'm hungry and we may not get anything for ages better stock up
Btw. I can reccomend Mirena I kinda forgotten what an AF is since I had it . Must check feeling due for new one . Mind it be immucalte conception if I did fall pregnant but am used to not having AF any more
Tortoise I would second Human's suggestion of a food diary. I find that if I graze all day I do better than if I try and starve myself and then eat more in the evenings. Maybe try eating smaller meals throughout the day? I don't think I go more than about 3 hours without food most days although a lot of the time it's a bit of fruit mid morning or a low fat yogurt mid afternoon, not a full blown meal. I wouldn't be able to eat nothing all day and just eat an evening meal, I would binge completely and it would be pointless having starved myself all day.
I have lost my chirstmas weight gain....5lbs off for me but it was bloody hard living on soup and veg all week. I honestly cannot stomach the last few pots in the freezer...the parsnip soup is like baby puree...
I can start afresh now and start making progress again so no slacking for me this week. I must get closer to that 12...
Down a pound. Now 11 st 10. Really pleased as i had a big lunch with a friend on friday and a party on saturday. Comfortably away from 12, I don't ever want to be over 12 st again.
youcan and tortoise those are really good results. Tortoise you might not have lost but you'll be getting fitter (and getting your kids fitter) so brilliant. Youcan 5lbs is amazing. When dh gets back you will be a 12!
Human I have to disagree. . I have no moderation in my eating. Especially this week end. I had huge plates full of crap plus various crap inbetween. Today is off to a bad start too. Miserable weather combined with sitting at home = snaking I'm bored and have things I should be doing but my motivation is at an all time low
