I havent just gone wild this Christmas, I have gone wild since November!!! I am now heavier than the days I gave birth.

So, it STOPS now! I am off to Centre Parcs with the kids in 8 weeks and I CANNOT expose the general public to my 'exploded sofa' body!

Going to aim to lose a stone in 8 weeks... please please will you support me and put up with my ramblings about wanting a takeaway and wine?

Well done runner and sandwitch. Struggling again tonight. The nights are my worst time. I know you shouldn't weigh daily but it's keeping me going motivation wise - even if I don't lose, I can see what I have lost. There will reach a time when I cannot take off anymore clothes to make the scales shift however grin

I'm away next weekend and will have one day when I cannot avoid eating 'out' at lunchtime and evening. Bit worried that I'll lose the ability to restrict my food if I have one day off. I know what I'm like. Starving gets easier the longer I do it I think. (Having said that I'm fighting the urge to scoff left over choc biscuits and crisps in the cupboard)

Well done Runner - If you can manage that with 'drunken cheating' you must have been really good for the rest of the week grin

Cabbage I seem to have mastered not eating in the evenings by refusing to get my big arse off the sofa = not going into the kids snack cupboard!

I am more than a bit anxious about this weekend - I seem to manage when I am at work, but there is so much temptation at home.
I need to be strong!

Looking at the snow outside, it is very doubtful that I will be out running on Saturday...

Themobstersknife Fri 18-Jan-13 12:38:03

1lb here. Rubbish! I'll get my coat!

CabbageLeaves Fri 18-Jan-13 16:39:09

New week thermo....

I've had a rubbish week day at work and feel tired and cold and BLOODY HUNGRY

Just trying to think of something comforting to cook tonight
(Normally a bag of crisps, a beer, bar of chocolate would be my comforter of choice)

Runnerlegs Fri 18-Jan-13 19:51:56

I am fessing up...

Just had a curry (with naan) and large glass of red! However, given the hideous snow and cold outside, I felt that, for health reasons, it was absolutely responsible of me to warm myself up both inside and out!!!

I am officially shit at dieting sad

CabbageLeaves Fri 18-Jan-13 20:53:12

grin grin

I've just made a lovely tikka masala with poppadums, mango chutney, naan and am on 2nd glass of wine

Feel much happier. Back to it tomorrow!

Lizzylou Sun 20-Jan-13 11:35:36

It is a loss, themob! Good going.

I am normally a bit naughty at the weekend, but exercise more so cling to that.

Really want a bloody curry now!!!

Themobstersknife Sun 20-Jan-13 14:24:59

I had homemade curry on Friday night too! Was lush and not too unhealthy! Just had some pork pie though... I blame the weather!

gillian88 Mon 21-Jan-13 16:28:45

2lb on this week, award for worlds worst dieter award goes to me!! Destined to be a fatty forever sad

Themobstersknife Mon 21-Jan-13 21:27:53

Yes but 2lb off overall isn't it Gillian? Still better than me. I have been terrible today as DD1 off school and being a total madam. Made me drink wine and eat chocolate once she was packed off to bed!
Must. Try. Harder.

gillian88 Mon 21-Jan-13 21:44:00

Yes, 4lb off last week, 2lb on this week. Feel like that's my hard work the first week ruined! Horrible weather has just made me comfort eat, haven't been able to get out with this snow so boredom eating too!! Definately in the must try harder club too!!

SandWitch Tue 22-Jan-13 10:20:26

Well, if we are all fessing up - I need to confess that I was really bad this weekend. Not good yesterday either if I am honest.

I need to get myself back into the right frame of mind - I am resisiting weighing until tomorrow - I have lost 8lb since the 2nd January, but know that I will just lose motivation if I don't lose consistently.

I really need to see the scales move.

<<kick up the arse for me and anyone else that needs it grin>>

Themobstersknife Tue 22-Jan-13 13:10:15

I need it! Thanks for that!

gillian88 Tue 22-Jan-13 15:11:06

At least I'm not the only bad one!! Thanks for that kick up the butt, needed that!wink

CabbageLeaves Tue 22-Jan-13 17:57:09

Today has been grim. sad. That's just work not food!

My chest feels tight, I'm so stressed by work stuff. I used to wind down with a glass of wine and crisps. (Cliche of a middle aged man with either ulcer or heart attack tbh). Tonight I shall ponder a bit of mindfulness and be calm

I will

I bloody will
confused

I'll weigh later. It better be good news!

Mother2many Tue 22-Jan-13 19:44:09

I am looking for a group to touch base on too.. By the scales I am about 80 pds over weight... I really don't want to "weigh" all the time...my first goal would be to watch what I eat. I'd rather not be disappointed in gaining... I'd like to first see myself turn down that cake/ 2ND HELPING/3RD HELPING of food first....

Then there is the alcohol. Beer is bad... Rye/Whiskey is bad, esp. when topped with coke.... Vodka/bad...with sprite... So...leaves what to sip on? LOL

Mother2many Tue 22-Jan-13 19:50:06

...thought of getting one of those step tracker things, just to see how much walking I really do in a day...since I'm too damn lazy to exercise... Might have a good laugh at myself, or cry...but either way would be a learning experience...

Themobstersknife Tue 22-Jan-13 19:54:27

Sorry to hear your day has been rubbish Cabbage. Will it help to get it off your chest? Good luck with your weigh in.
Welcome Mother. Have you tried MyFitnessPal? When I actually do it, it does really work for me!

CabbageLeaves Tue 22-Jan-13 19:55:01

Sounds like a good challenge Mother2many I'm not drinking midweek at all. It's amazing how many calories there are in alcohol!! One bottle spread across 3 days at the weekend. I'm sure that is healthier for me anyway

CabbageLeaves Tue 22-Jan-13 19:56:46

I think MFP is a great way of confronting the problem food and motivating you to change

I've mailed a friend and ranted Thermo - all stuff I can't repeat on here!

Mother2many Tue 22-Jan-13 20:42:17

Yes, I just signed on to MyFitnessPaL! I think I'd also like to buy one of those pedometers... It would be good and maybe challenging for me to see how many steps I do move in a day!!! Baby steps to weight loss right! smile

SandWitch Wed 23-Jan-13 13:36:45

Welcome Mother2many!

Sounds like you have the right idea and being sensible with your weight loss. I have had to restrict myself with the scales - I was getting a little addicted to checking the scales all of the time. Now on a strict weekly weigh-in only.

On that note - I have lost another 2lbs this week, bringing my total to 10lbs in 3 weeks grin
Not sure how I have managed it to be honest, given how bad I was at the weekend.

I really need to get some exercise in. The snow here is all but melted, so my 'too much ice' excuse not to go out for a run is no longer valid.
I am wondering if the world at large is ready for the horror that the sight of me trying to run will be.
Or maybe they are in need of a laugh?

Themobstersknife Wed 23-Jan-13 14:45:20

Well done SandWitch! That is brilliant!
I'm going to start running around the house with my wii fit for motivation! There is no way the world is ready to see me run!

gillian88 Wed 23-Jan-13 19:48:20

Well done sandwich! That's fantastic ! grin

CabbageLeaves Wed 23-Jan-13 20:12:24

Brilliant Sandwitch - that's rewarding isn't it. My scales are old and hard to read and give different readings within two minutes of weighing. It's a guide but I struggle with a lb or two difference over a short space of time. Much slower loss this week but I'm still chuffed to bits at steady loss
