ha - glad I checked in this morning as I had actually somehow forgotten about the swimming incident and I am very glad not to have had it raise it's ugly head while I was actually talking to my boss. As far as I know my boobs never escaped...I just kept having to haul the front of my costume up all the time.
Right so 1lb down for me...which is a bit of a miracle as I feel I was on and off the horse so frequently I should have saddle burns. I guess it is a good thing that I feel I ate loads and still lost...although it is a bad thing how panicky it made me. I would eat and then freak out that all the weight would be back in the morning. I somehow feel I am heavier than 3 weeks ago when I bought The Dress but actually I am 2.5 kilos lighter.
gah psychological disorders anyone?
Anyway 35 gone, 24 to go. My 7th Jan target (1st weigh in after the xmas season) is 10 st 13. Giving me a daily calorie budget of 1500 between now and then...although clearly Ill be saving some up for the big events
Well done icb a pound is good especially if you feel you ate a lot.
It's funny you feel you've put on weight, I have lost a stone and a half but have got used to my body. I saw myself in a shop window on Friday and was horrified at how fat I looked when rationally I know I look better than I have done in years. I haven't got the tape measure out for weeks, last time my waist was still over 35 inches, so might measure it again to see if I've got thinner. I am very bored of dieting so it might give me a boost if my waist was smaller.
But human how did we let ourselves get like this? I was largely happy with myself until I saw a picture of me in September with about five chins (which have gone now). If only I'd been this critical 5 or 10 years ago. Oh well, I suppose I'm doing ok now.
tiggy I hope your day got better. It is so hard to resist nice food. It will all be worth it when we are lovely and slim. X
I look at pictures Thw odd few unavoidable ones taken and think how Ds1 I bounced back . Ds2 ok but then went to pot with dd and ds3 then marriage break down ,ds 3 Sn accident etc but end of it I realise that basically I just overrate all the wrong stuff
But I know a big change came with finally reporting something that happened in my teens and this time someOne believing me
Tiggy that's must be very tough not getting a break . Ds3 has SEN /SN and is struggling in schoo
one day Dd been in school after week of and she is chucking up everywhere . Poor ds1 had strip her bed ( cabin bed ) and clean it up as I can't reach . Placd iour bets how quick rest of dc follow her lead
hope you and your children are all better and human i hope the bug didn't spread to all your children.
I have to take dd2 to doctor today she had a slight temperature Friday to Monday and you really don't want me to describe what she's been coughing up. I'm sure there's nothing wrong with her I am such a worrier. It was her 2nd birthday too so we've had 4 days of birthday celebrations, two parties and grandparent visits. I have been so naughty living off cakes and sweets and no proper meals. Still managing 1100 to 1300 cals but in the least healthy way possible. Today I'm going to throw all the remaining sweets away and try to get back on track.
hello everyone i havent posted for a week or so as ive been away twice, so lots of food consumed im afraid I didnt weigh this week as wanted to wait unitl id had a bit of time at home to get back on the diet! so will weight for next monday , but i did lose a pound before i went away so 20 lbs now hope everyone else is ok
Had a bit of a shock today. I never weigh owt so out of curiosity i weighed my breakfast cereal. I have been eating almost 500 cals in cereal every morning !!!!!! I could've had a cooked breakfast for that! I can't believe how small 100 g is! On the upside, i discovered celery only has 5 cals so that may be my snack of choice from now on (till i get bored and can't stand the sight of it)
Poor dd2 has a chest infection and is on antibiotics so three times a day she turns into an octopus with endless limbs kicking and thrashing around while I try to get her to take the antibiotics.
Human, that's good news. Sadly I discovered the downside to being thinner today. Phase eight has a 50% sale on so I thought I'd see if I could get a nice outfit for Xmas day. I think half of my wardrobe was bought in a phase eight or monsoon sale. Anyway I couldn't see anything nice in 12 or 14 but loads in 8 or 16!
Shocked Tiggy! Are you going to try something else for breakfast? I love eggs but never have the time to do them so I end having toast every day with a dairy lea triangle as otherwise I put a huge amount of marg or butter on my toast. I tend to weigh carbs as they have such high calories for what they are. So now I tend to only have a couple of oz pasta or today I did a paella with just 1 1/2 oz risotto rice. my real weakness when I started dieting was potatoes and chips but I've cut right down on them (I steal a couple of dh's when we go out)
Happy today as I've been living off cupcakes and sweets for a week. Got a food delivery yesterday and I'm going to eat healthily (and try to have just one cupcake a day!)
Hope everyone is getting into the christmas spirit!
I had a weigh this morning as have a wedding tonight and will eat my weight in vol u vents
I have lost another pound. I am now 12st 9 lbs. Feelin good. I will be good next week and weigh saturday again but then I will not weigh forthe nest THREE weeks.
