Having a bad morning. Just fried some chips for lunch. It was all I fancied eating. I have been for a walk round the field with dogs. I think it's boredom. I have loads to do but just no energy to do it! My house is a pigsty
Tortoise I hope you're feeling better now. Are you organising parties for everyone? We're taking a few friends to a soft play centre and having a small party after school next week so I have to do online shopping today and my most hated thing which is wrapping pass the parcel presents.
I weighed myself today and I have reached my target. 145.3 lbs so BMi is 24.9 so only just healthy. Thank you for all your help ladies, I really have no other way of getting things off my chest and could not have done it withoit you. When I started this I don't know if i seriously thought I'd lose 45lbs, the target just seemed so far away.
Still can't quite believe i'm normal weight, it will take some time to change how I feel about myself. I think I'm going to try to go down to 140 slowly and see if I'm happy with that.
Thanks icb, weird, the weight loss has been slow, slow, slow for ages and then I lost 4lbs in about 10 days. I suspect I'll be up by Monday but it's good to know I got there once. I hope your day gets better.
Must google bra shops, no excuse to still wear grey, saggy maternity bras.
Wow tortoise that's amazing. I have a long history of failed baking experiments and so would never try to make an important cake like a birthday cake again. I made cakes for dd1's 1st and dd2's 2nd birthdays and wouldn't let anyone eat them! (other than dh who seems to like dry, rubbery, crumbly and slimy cakes!)
I saw youcan on a thread about driving the other day, she's just started lessons. I wished her luck but I think she's forgotten me
Went into white stuff yesterday and the old me came back. Not sure what the occasion was but they had a table at the front with crisps, doughnuts, biscuits, cocktail sausages... I stripped that table like a swarm of locusts in a corn field. Carb overload. Too scared to weigh myself today!
I am coming back on Monday.....approximately 7lbs heavier.
My life has gone mental. I now have a part time job, am volunteering in a primary school, am learning to drive, am chairperson of a toddler group, applying for jobs at CCC's school and now....back on a diet as of Monday.
I literally cannot sleep as have so much on with children and work etc So food has been a comfort again.
Overall I have still lost 1st 5 lbs....but I need to replicate that.
I am armed with a ZUMBA dvd now and I WILL do this again. Just need to focus. How is everyone???
Tortoise that cake is amazing. I could never do anything like that. I hope dd2s having a good day and that your cold is getting better. It's a busy weekend for me, 2 children's parties (including 1 for dd1) and 1 adult party. There's no point even trying to diet so I am going to have an indulgent weekend then start again Monday.
Welcome back youcan, wow you have been busy. And well done on the weight loss. Overall you're still down by a long way. I'm guessing you're about 12st now so I bet you look great. Good luck with the driving, it took me 23 years to pass (with a 20 year gap in the middle), I bought a car this week and am too scared to drive it!
I reached target but set a new lower target. I think your body changes physically before you do mentally and there's a phase where you still think you're fat even though you can tell objectively from the scales and the tape measure that you're not. So I'm fitting in 10/12 clothes but I don't feel thin! I know I'm being stupid so I'm just going to slowly lose another 5lbs to get down to 10st to see how I feel.
Cold eased off a bit. Took DDs to park for a bit. Cake wasn't that hard to make. It has caused a funny side effect. DD1 called me into the bathroom earlier in a panic. "mum my poo is green". I take a quick look, think about what's been eaten, then crack up laughing! Must be from colouring in cake . DS1 also had same!
