I am eating so disgustingly healthily today I think I may have turned into Gwyneth Paltrow. If she were a size 22. And liked creme eggs.

Lizzylou Mon 29-Apr-13 17:48:20

Go Gwynnie
You always seem far more fun than Gwynnie anyhoo Double grin

Just waiting for Dh then I can escape house of egg for the gym. Never wanted to exercise so mych in my life grin

RandallPinkFloyd Mon 29-Apr-13 18:05:48

Nah, if you were really Gwynnie you'd replace food with 3 hours of yoga and silent weeping.

SylviaDaisyPouncer Mon 29-Apr-13 19:03:48

You lot do make me laugh, just what I needed after a long day at work (bleedin 4 am start today, feels like midnight now!)

I have taken to weighing pre and post poo, just for research purposes you know. Hadn't thought of taking it to the next level and weighing pee too. I have just potty trained dd and I reckon she could give you a run for your money tea I have never seen so much wee from such a little personsmile

I'm so rubbish at remembering who has posted what, especially today as my brain is fried. Will try harder tomorrow I promise.

Dh still hasn't booked the hotel for my birthday, though he has a short list. He is talking about waiting for a last minute deal (much twitching from me, Lordy knows where we will end up). Then last night he casually mentions there's a hotel at Chelsea football ground, overlooking the pitch?? I gave him the look , say no more. I think he knows he would never be forgiven (but thought he would try his luck anyhow).

Weighing tomorrow, lets hope for a loss. A big loss please.

DoubleMum Mon 29-Apr-13 19:18:49

Sylvia am sending brain messages to DH about some lovely spa, and images of fire and pestilence if venturing anywhere near Chelsea football ground.
I can't do yoga so perhaps I'm not Gwynnie after all. Shame, having just watched her snog Robert Downey Jr in Ironman 3. (Is it only me who is constantly surprised she would be in Ironman?!)

dinkydoos Mon 29-Apr-13 19:19:11

Hello all, quite excited to be in the nice new thread!
Total randallisation at the weekend, so predictably fasting today...
Wonder if Gwynnie randallisation her weekend away?

DoubleMum Mon 29-Apr-13 19:19:43

I missed the weighing wee bit. We don't have to do that now do we? Since am trying to drink 8 glasses of water today I am virtually living in the loo.

RandallPinkFloyd Mon 29-Apr-13 19:32:27

Gwynnie would be shit at Randalling. Properly shit.

She'd be all "lets have some mung beans and a yummy okra smoothie, then we can go mad and have some gluten free bread with yaks milk spread".

No. She would not be a good Randall.

I have heard she has vodka in her smoothie and she dips her mung beans in curry sauce now she isn't BFF with Madonna and her veiny arms. And she weighs before and after a poo. And a wee. The only reason she got most beautiful in the world was because she was a Chief in a former life.

Awwwwight new thread.

SDP 4am. shock And don't worry about the lastminute.com I've taken the risk three times now booking on the morning I go (week night and weekend) and stayed in some lovely places - I quite like doing the surprise ones and have never been to the Chelsea one but I hear tis very nice you probably want one in Bloomsbury or around there (I think you're going to a show) as it is a short walk from the west end.

<wonders whether a wee-off is on the offing>

BsshBossh Mon 29-Apr-13 19:50:18

Tea good luck on the interview (when it happens).

Double hurrah for new thread!

Randall hope you feel better soon.

SDP shall we give your DH a collective Chiefs kick in the butt for you?

Lizzy sterling work on the swimathon and how great are your boys?! You must be proud.

Darkly I think consecutive fasts should be fine - whatever you can do really - it's all good for the body and mind.

Well today I went shopping for new jeans (and also tried on skirts and tops). Early last year I was a size 18, slipping upto 20 in some shops. Today everything I tried on except some ultra skinny jeans were size 12. That was French Connection and Gap. My jeans waist as gone from 36 to 30. I nearly fainted in the changing room (the FC shop assistant insisted I took in the 12s along with the 14s I'd picked for myself). Then I fainted at the till. Blimey FC is expensive (by my standards).

SylviaDaisyPouncer Mon 29-Apr-13 20:14:52

Ah but Bssh FC is worth it. Dh has a lovely pair of FC trousers which have lasted ages (though admittedly a couple of those years he couldn't fit into them). You must be doing cartwheels at size 12....you're a bloomin star!

I'm still awake, too light to be in bed, plus I'm keeping a sneaky eye on dh and the laptop. I am not telling him you have heard that Chelsea place is nice tea, would only give him false hope. Not sure I could wait until the day we go/ night before to book something, although I bet it would be worth it. Maybe next time......unless the kids play up and my Mum won't have them again.

Ooh forgot to say that I've been keeping measurements of my arms, bust, waist etc. I have lost 72 cm since last November. Crazy isn't it. Very motivating when the scales don't move that quickly.

And thinking of Gwynnie, did anyone see her on Graham Norton? I can't deny she looks fantastic but her cookery book?? How does she get her kids to eat it? I challenge her to feed my two, she would be cracking out the fish fingers in no time I'm sure!

RandallPinkFloyd Mon 29-Apr-13 20:45:37

Size 12! Massive whoops!

Shewhojuggles Mon 29-Apr-13 21:43:08

Bssh size 12 is brilliant, you slinky, skinny-jeans wearing minx! Bet that felt fab, despite the price of FC grin

Randall the silent weeping had me giggling lots, no wonder Gwynnie always looks like a miserable cow. She clearly needs more cake. My DD wouldn't entertain any of that stuff in her book!

Well I'm another pound closer to a Gwynnie-style figure today must have been the big wee i had before weighing in. 31lbs lost in total (25 since i starting tracking on MFP). I'm still a long way off from healthy according to the printed slip you get from the weighing machine which is quite daunting. Might break the 17lbs to healthy into smaller goals...

DarklydreamingofDamon Mon 29-Apr-13 21:53:26

Ooh, shiny new thread! Fasting done today and was v good with no cheating at all....not sure I could do consecutive days though as am now really fantasising about a proper meal and don't think I can wait until Wednesday!

Shewhojuggles Mon 29-Apr-13 22:04:33

Well done Darkly. Defo have a proper meal tomorrow to reward yourself for a successful fast. I've never managed consecutive ones but i put that down to feeling really dizzy if i havent eaten for a while.

RandallPinkFloyd Mon 29-Apr-13 23:17:49

Well done on your first fast damon the first one is definitely the worst. Don't do two consecutive days unless you want to. I don't know much about 5:2 but as far as I can tell it's mainly just a different way to control your calories over the course of a week, so as long as you have 2 fast days in 7 it should work fine.

Well done on the loss Juggles, it seems we have similar goals going by those stats. I'm on 44lbs lost but still another pound and a half just to get to healthy. It's so daunting isn't it, healthy was my first goal and it seemed so far away back in January. I didn't set any mini goals along the way either and really wish I had done, it's made it feel like a very long time waiting for something to celebrate. I won't feel like I've actually achieved anything until I hit that goal. Maybe break it down into half stones? Might seem like more manageable chunks.

We'll get there. We need to join Bssh in her size 12s! Onwards and downwards Chief.

Lizzylou Tue 30-Apr-13 06:02:58

Big yays for bssh in her size 12's and SPD's 72 cm grin
Gwynnie would be so proud.

Well done Dinky and Darkly on fasting, after a weekend Randalling I am finding fasting to be quite ok on a Monday.

Dh gone to big smoke at crack of dawn so am awake and have been for over a mofo hour angry

DoubleMum Tue 30-Apr-13 07:56:34

Lizzy I woke at 3.30 to go to the loo and never got back to sleep. Gwyneth must have the same problem.

DoubleMum Tue 30-Apr-13 07:58:51

On a lighter note (see what I did there?) I have lost 3.4 lbs this week. I can't attribute it to the lovely RGPargy's Paltrow Diet as I've only done that for 1 full day. Therefore I have concluded that nutella pinwheels actually have weightloss properties.

Lizzylou Tue 30-Apr-13 08:55:15

I will make haste to get me some of those nutella pinwheels!

Well done Double smile flowers

Have to be good this week, we are off camping at the weekend which mostly means lots of carby food, perhaps fish and chips and wine (medicinal, so that I sleep wink)

Size 12 shock

72 cm shock shock

Juggles well done, onwards and downwards Chief.

Double Just Brilliant. <adds nutella pinwheels to shopping list>

Oh Chiefs ... poor you being early risen this morn. I hate it when I haven't had enough sleep. I have been known to grump but it's ok, Gwynie has the same problem

Oh and I my kids wouldn't eat her recipes either.

Damon I second the Randall - small goals: half stones, reaching milestones like a round stone, BMI changes. I had 3 goals in my first Chief 16 lbs but didn't have any on the home straight and it feels like this last bit is devoid of celebration. I invested some new sports kit, a slinky dress and some pants as rewards. Not expensive ones just enough to keep me feeling good about myself.

It's beautiful in the south-west this morning. There is blue in the sky <faints>

Camping. Brilliant. I love it and especially the wine to help me sleep and chips.

Only another two years before we can go again - we're counting down until DS4 is 5 on account of him being an escape risk. Oh and our last disastrous camping trip which involved me being six months pregnant on a lilo with a 14 stone man, the fire brigade waking us at 3am as our toilet block burned, seagulls stealing lunch on a regular basis and DS2 (8 at the time) wanting to know what a cunty twat bollocks was after spending 30 minutes playing in the play area.

DoubleMum Tue 30-Apr-13 09:14:46

That sounds delightful Tea. I would rush to book the same venue but I don't DO camping on account of having a very long night's panic attack as a 6 man tent with 7 people in it slowly collapsed on me at the Grand Canyon. Which was more than 20 years ago now but still, never again. <deep breaths>

Wow. Camping at GC. That sounds like something to add to my list of things to do. The stars must have been amazing. What a shame about the tent. And sorry about the panic attack sad
