Time for me to have a large kick up the arse and lose weight! (After Easter!)grin

were going home later .

Nothing more then can do in here .We have rescue meds to use if goes on more than 5 mins and if they fail second dose while calling 999 and Dr agreed can do that just as easy in skegness as at home and Ds has made it clear how much he wants to go to Butlins so we are going grin

i know i sound blase but think its as he had so long now its just part of parcel of his extra needs and go with the well were wait and see and deal with stuff as arises.Tend go with the well live today worry tomorrow ( DD has a life limiting medical condition on top of ds needs)

Am going home later to mad pack and sort stuff out and erm eat cake to is suspectblush

I know what you mean about coming across as blaise, i do it too-particularly when others are stressing about ds being ill.

A holiday will do you all the World of good!

Tortoise Sun 07-Apr-13 11:41:09

Enjoy your holiday human. Hope you have a good time smile .

Human, I hope ds is out of hospital and you all have a good holiday.

We've had a lovely weekend, went for a walk today with the kids round some castle ruins and by a river. The sunshine was lovely. I can't believe we went from snow blizzards on Friday to lovely sunshine on Saturday!

Good luck tomorrow everyone. As usual I'm nervous about weigh in, I've generally had an ok week apart from lots and lots of chocolate.

Well I've gained 3lbs sad .
AF though so a little of that gain may be that but can't keep blaming everything else. I'm just crap at healthy eating!blush

Down 1.5lbs so 10 st 12. Very pleased as I ate lots of chocolate. Dh on holiday for a week so maintaining / losing will be hard.

Tortoise Mon 08-Apr-13 09:04:55

Well done Johnny smile .

coffeewineandchocolate Mon 08-Apr-13 11:16:36

Stayed the same at 10st 12 after a week of excess. Feel really rough tho after the fatty and refined sugar... Making a nice healthy soup for this week to take to work once ds is in bed to try and help me resistnaughty food.

I always put on a few pound on af week tortoise so try not to worry too much!

ICBINEG Mon 08-Apr-13 12:55:50

argh! I forgot to weigh!

I might give it a week to settle after easter binging though....

I made myself feel very ill by stuffing chocs on saturaday night but then managed to have just a starter when the whole family went to bella italia for lunch the next day.

Tortoise Mon 08-Apr-13 13:19:28

There will be eating of chocolate cake today. My PFB grin is 16 today lol grin

Sorry I didn't have time this morning to say a belated happy birthday to tortoise. I'm sure skinnies will look fab with your new boots. And happy birthday to pfb.

Going to Brighton tomorrow to Thursday for a break with dh and kids so you probably won't hear from me til I get back. Not taking iPad, how will I live? It's like leaving a child at home! Mfp tells me I've logged in for 195 days in a row. Wonder if it'll tell me off for ignoring it for 3 days.

Well done johnny! And have a nice trip away, human too. Especially DS enjoy your holiday.

I am 14.1 this morning, so have put a few pounds on but I am not surprised as we have had in laws here all last week and we ate so much, and naughty rubbish too. Am on soup this week.

Happy birthday tortoise ds hope cake was good

No weigh in for me after last weeks crsp eating and this week I'm not even Goibg there

How's this for ironic years I over eaten but seems we have a possible dx gor ds3 vomiting they think has gastro paresis which can occur at any time but linked to his other condition seems his stomach now partly paralised and can't move food through gut so its undigested ends up feeling full very easy but then throws up as no room . Then 5 mins later moaning he is hungry as demstroated in restaurant scene from exorcist no warning and IMF buckets of vomit everywhere but his breakfast and lunch was undigested could been scientific study wise

But cringe trying explain not tummy bug but ekkk bio hazard mask /aprons etc while cleaned up I'm not talking a little he could filled washing up bowl 3 times over but lol he spread it out over floor /table and more floor on way to loos under his brothers arm lots of people who possibily reined their over eating in today < apologies to abyone in the deck restaurant at Butlibs ) ds3 doing his bit help people stick to their diet grin

But ooh confirmed what they feel Is so urgent review when home 7/8 small meals ( not sick after breakfast or lunch at all but not digested ) needs sit quiet not be rushed wtc that be no school then . But said no reason go home early

Butlibs fab decided best not feeding in restaurant but they said we can take meal back and can eat in chalet no problems

So that's me that has to rein in my food eating .ds2 who has to eat loads if high fat and ds3 who wants to eat but can't

Tortoise Tue 09-Apr-13 09:48:55

Oh my human. That sounds awful and would have definitely put me off my food lol. I have a bit of a phobia about vomit. If I'd not known the reason I would have worried for days that we were all going to catch it!
Hope rest of the holiday goes better. smile

ICBINEG Tue 09-Apr-13 10:33:03

human oh dear that sounds like more than a bit of a trial.

sorry I know that is pathetically understating things!

ICBINEG Tue 09-Apr-13 10:34:30

Right so I weighed in this morning...and after a week of easter binging I am now 8 pounds from my goal weight.

So 4 weeks. 4 kilos. start the clock!

Butlins staff are fab and all enjoying self I may require holiday after

Hmm as much as I said intend pig out well I am but not as much as thought I would . Considering unlimited I'm only eating one slice of cake a day < ignores the cooked breakfast and chocolate > scales will not be kind when homeblush

You can do it icb

I had salad for dinner shines halo

But erm ok QD won't discuss the cooked breakfast every morning or the almond cake and cream after dinner or the cookie made with kids at club blush

Hello. Where is everyone? I need you all to come back and whip me tell me off as I have just had an uncontrollable week. Went to Brighton with every intention of eating healthily. I really tried but we just didn't find any really healthy restaurants. One night I chose a Greek salad as it was the only thing without chips and it was swimming in so much olive oil I found it inedible so I ate dds chips. We got back and I've been bingeing on biscuits, chocolate and pringles - in the kitchen when dh and dc think I'm preparing their meals. And I've been eating all their leftovers too, so back to all my old habits. Every day I say 'diet starts tomorrow' and then I eat rubbish at breakfast time and the day gets worse.

I really don't know why I'm sabotaging myself so close to the target weight.

Sorry for the long post I'm hoping that by telling you this I'm going to shame myself to get back to mfp and the diet.

human I'm sorry to hear about ds3, I hope he's ok, and you were all able to have a good holiday despite him being sick.

were home and tomorrow i start being good .Have bad arm after bed to hard and lying akward i think but pita as course i use arm to move so im going in circles am being good and resting it ( so its take away and no houseworkgrin not all bad

johnny tbh i kinda get it think we take eye of the ball thinking almost there few days wont matter

i know i have past two weeks 9 ds3 being ill and then holiday)

so tomorrow we both restart .We can do this

ICBINEG Sat 13-Apr-13 22:26:06

johnny I could have written your post.

What are we going to do?

I don't understand why it was so easy and now it is so hard...

johnny and ich snap. I am a bit ashamed actually. I have to lose some weight because I have a wedding in June with loads of old uni mates and I was SOOOOOO skinny then. I think I am up to 14.2 again, which is crap.

I am not sure what's did last time that made me so hardcore, I jus found myself in a zone of 'no shit'. What shall we do!

Yikes getting a bit crowded over in the oh shit corner. You know they say when women live together there periods run in sinc . Think our diet failures are

Wonder if its as been doing so long having a fuck it month and trying rein it in seems so hard add in the weather bad enough dieting in the winter but when it's spring least meant be that bit warmer weather which would help but instead its still fecking miserable so all wanting comfort stodgy

We definitely need to get back into the zone. Charlie have you bought your dress yet? Maybe you would feel motivated if you had a goal. As human said at the start don't think about the whole 3 or 4 stone you want to lose, aim to be 13 st 9 by the wedding or some other achievable goal.

To get back into the zone I intend to
1. Weigh myself tomorrow. It might not be as bad as I think and if it is it'll give me an idea of how much damage I've done.
2. Buy some cheap size 10 tops that I will fit into this summer.
3. A week of hardcore healthy eating and minimal sugar or snacks. So it will be herbal tea not cappuccino, carrots instead of biscuits.
4. 8 glasses of water a day, I never drink water anymore
5. This will mean absolutely no playdates or coffee mornings or socialising.

I have a food order coming tomorrow morning and I'm going to have very easy to make meals next week as I've got out of the habit of cooking. I'm thinking of salmon and veg tomorrow, vegetable fajitas on Tuesday, stirfry Wednesday.

Come on ladies, we can do it.
