Icb that made me laugh! I hope you're feeling better.
Checkpoint, that's plenty of time for you to make a difference.
This morning I watched the first part of 30 day shred! I am feeling ill at the moment so not ready to do it. I went to he doctor as I've had stomach cramps since friday and some constipation. It's just a virus but combined with my already quite low blood pressure I've also been feeling nauseous and dizzy. Doctor has told me to rest for a week and come back if I don't feel better. Gah, i'm trying to be more active not less.
Anyway despite feeling like crap I am eating healthily and am feeling like I can lose the weight. I have bought some size 10 trousers from eBay to further motivate me. Only 8lbs til I reach target BMi of 25. I want to be there by 1st July.
Finding it hard to eat as well so let's hope weigh in will be a good one!
Human I feel the same, dds Easter chocolate doesn't seem that appealing to me so apart from being poorly I think I'm getting back to normal. I'm sure you will have a good loss it always seems to be the way that we have a few days off, we put the pounds on, and then lose them quite quickly.
Sorry about that icb! I think the difference is that I don't inherently enjoy the taste of chocolate (apart from a bar of cadburys bournville that can last me weeks) but on some level have a sugar addiction. So when I do stuff like scoffing chocolate as I was doing last week it was uncontrollable and not very satisfying. My taste preference has always been savouries so give me crisps and bread any day.
Although food of any kind would be good at the moment. Still feeling sick, think I managed about 700 cals yesterday and even that was an effort. Went to bed with a bucket next to me!
Hello cookie, where did you go? I had a couple of days in Brighton but I'm sure yours was much more interesting. Hope you're managing to get back into it. I went a bit mad and ate everything in sight. Fortunately my eatings ok again thanks to a bug and a tiny bit of willpower.
I hope everyone else is well too and looking forward to the weekend. We'll probably have a quiet weekend just going to the park.
I went on the Disney Fantasy on a caribbean cruise , it was so cool! Ive always wanted to go, ive been to parks a few times but this was first cruise and i want to go again already! It was a lot of food though all day long if you wanted ( and 24 room service too on top) So i havent weighed as got back sunday and so will wait til next week in hope it isnt too bad, but wont be good im sure We too are having a quiet weekend as need it after past 2 weeks for sure
It is lovely today. We went to the park this morning and a local cafe for lunch. I had a lovely chicken schnitzel baguette with salads for lunch. I hate the way that eating out is so carbs based, I'm sure my baguette had hundreds of calories but it was the healthiest looking thing on the menu. I'm almost better now and have eaten practically nothing all week so for once I'm not too bothered with calories. I'll be very upset if I haven't lost the 1 1/2 lbs I put on last week if not more.
Checkpoint, well done for eating so well. I have had a couple of weeks where I have eaten really healthily and lost nothing, try to keep going and you might see a bigger loss next week. Or if you're really bothered start weighing foods again, just to check you're not eating more than you think.
I also have good news. Down 2.2 lbs to 10 st 10.8 lbs. Only 5lbs from target! (but I think I'm going to have to reduce target. I still have a big tummy and waist). Next week I'd really like to be 10 st 9 as that would make my loss 3 st in total.
I've been doing pilates but can't do it for a few weeks so looking for a course on a different day. I'm slightly scared of doing abs as I have had a bad back before so I definitely want someone to watch me rather than watching a video or doing it on my own at home. I've been looking at personal trainers and they're so expensive and increasingly they try to teach you about diet too andi don't feel I need to pay someone to do that.
OO well done , everyone seems to be getting close to their goal , I am still just half way! weighed and am just 2lbs more than i was before holiday so amazed and really pleased and motivated to carry on now to lose more 2 stone down and 2 and a half to go
