I'd love to lose a stone...

Classic case: been dieting for 10 years on and off, have a hubby who is probably a little underweight, have a 8mth old who needs stuff to be mashed, and I'd love to lose a stone. Saw a picture of me at a wedding yesterday, after I'd lost my pregnancy weight (only put on 6lb), and I nearly cried, looked massive.

I'm 25, a size 12-14, 5 7, and 11 st 8lb so a little chubby. I work 3 days a week and work in retail gardening so run around a bit and do lots of lifting.

I'd like to know if there's anyone who's managed to lose that last bit and if there's any tips?

Thank you

I'm currently 5'2" and 10st 7lb. So aiming for at least 9st 7lb by March.

Had a lovely steak last night with just a green salad but have realised I did not add the oil I cooked it in so added it to today and has set me back 62 cals! Going to invest in that spray oil today

MABS - me too! Ironic that I haven't had a hangover the whole Xmas period but do having not drunk!

(May be more dependent than I realise...)

Doing my first fasting day of the 5:2 programme and already craving bacon sandwiches. Randomly quite enjoying my hot water with lemon rather than tea though.

Daisy -spray oil is great although you need quite a few sprays to cook well.

Does anyone get heartburn when they start to cut down on food? I always do and am feeling it now, I guess gaviscon has calories in

DancingInTheMoonlight Thu 03-Jan-13 19:22:20

Not yet daisy but i had a terrible nights sleep last night :-(. Everything had calories according to my phone :-(

daisydee43 Thu 03-Jan-13 20:29:00

Just watching hairy dieters, apparently there's calories in black pepper, 5 per tsp! But salt doesn't
Had another good day, stuck to the calories, dinner was in edible (thanks morrisons) so had ww meal instead,

How's everyone getting on?

Good work Daisy!

I'm 55 calories over my limit today. Taking the Christmas tree down and it seemed a shame to throw away the leftover chocolate decorations. Currently ganging head in shame.

2lbs off this morning so 11st 6. Mostly water I know, but feels goooood.

MABS Fri 04-Jan-13 09:13:01

well done Sassy, daren't weigh myself! bad day yesterday and out to dinner today and tomorrow so know i will be bad sad not driving either. will really try from Sunday. crap i know...

sassytheFIRST Fri 04-Jan-13 09:22:00

To be fair, MABs, I prob weigh substantially more than you to start with! Are you still off the booze? I am - and feel crap again. Hoping to feel better tomorrow. Going to the rugby tonight so will drink coffee rather than beer (warming, if nothing else)

CooEeeEldridge Fri 04-Jan-13 09:38:58

Well done sassy! And Bazinga, you had choc decorations actually left on your tree?! That is an achievement! smile

I'm generally under my calorie limit but it's all bad stuff!! Had 3 biscuits already today, I need an app that highlights all the fat I'm eating really... Ah well!

MABS Fri 04-Jan-13 10:19:57

Sassy, you don't weigh that much more i assure you! did have two glasses wine last night i ashamed to say, no excusesjust no will power. You are all doing so well! WELL DONE

MOSagain Fri 04-Jan-13 10:36:20

Arse! have been really good since NYD and have done lots of exercise and this morning was 2lb heavier! WTF?

MABS since when do you need to lose weight? shock unless of course you overindulged on your exotic christmas holiday? wink

Wommer Fri 04-Jan-13 11:39:45

Am gonna jump in here too if that's ok. Got 1.5st of baby weight to lose by may - 30th birthday and neeeeed to fit into the rest of my clothes by then!

MOS - could be your period coming? I always have major water retention then.

Wommer Fri 04-Jan-13 11:40:11

How often are people weighing in btw?

DancingInTheMoonlight Fri 04-Jan-13 12:41:30

Hi all! Ds just off for a nap so have time to check in :-). I'm doing well so far. On or under 1200 cals but feeling full, eating healthily with one treat per day. I'm good at the beginning but i find eating out/meeting friends for coffee difficult... Using mfp is a and has highlighted deficiencies in my diet so an eating better and taking multivitamins..

MABS Fri 04-Jan-13 14:52:55

Mos - am 11 stone! was 9 and half a year ago!!

MOSagain Fri 04-Jan-13 15:31:04

<mos wishes she was 11 stone!>

daisydee43 Fri 04-Jan-13 16:00:19

Wommer- I think I will be doing a weekly weigh in as daily results can be misleading

Coo- the mfp app does show how much fat etc is in the food you eat. At the top it says SUMMARY, DAILY, WEEKLY- press DAILY to get nutrition info

Getting on really well, don't get time to eat breakfast which is prob bad but I can enjoy a nice lunch. Am absolutely addicted to WW products, have stocked up on goodies. Been cooking the same family meals but instead of having veg/pots etc on the side, I've been having a plain green salad so have found that very easy

WELL DONE EVERYONE - KEEP IT GOING!!!

daisydee43 Fri 04-Jan-13 17:41:30

Night 2 of dh and I not talking to eat other, really want to hit the biscuit tin but I am not going to let him spoil what I've done

DancingInTheMoonlight Fri 04-Jan-13 18:28:51

Just ignore him and make yourself a nice tea and treat yourself to a pampering session :-)

Wommer Fri 04-Jan-13 19:02:26

Ah daisy that sucks. Treat yourself in other ways instead - have a nice bath and listen to angry music grin

Good idea with the weekly weigh in instead of daily.
