Come and sign up if you want to join us. We start on Monday and Bootcamp will run for 10 weeks.

Each week we will weigh in using the Spreadsheet of Fabulousness which is set up and maintained by the lovely WillieWaggleDagger.

You will also see, if you look at the tabs at the bottom of the spreadsheet, the rules as well as the list of allowed veg, and all manner of other resources to help you.

So that Willie can get the spreadsheet set up in time for our first weigh-in on Monday, please can you all sign in if you want to join?

I'll start the list, so just add your name and then cut and past the list and re-post it.

Yoghurty Tue 23-Apr-13 08:22:58

I am signing in.

I followed the last bootcamp and lost 20lbs (didn't make myself known as I have 'signed in' before then never made it past day 3!) I've lost another 5lbs since then and want to do the next 10 weeks- is it 10?- with everyone else.

I look forward to all the support and recipes!

BIWI Tue 23-Apr-13 08:28:06

Signing in! As I said before, my DS is haing an op at the start of the week & its going to be difficult to bootcamp properly while we are there, so I am going to start on Wed (1st May). Have gained a few pounds since the last bootcamp, but have lost that plus a few more too grin Im at 2 stone 1lb lost since Jan smile

<rolls up sleeves>

I'm in sainsbo.com as I write concocting the perfect Week One shopping list.

I've been low-carbing since last August and hit my target last month. Before Bootcamp I hadn't stuck at a weight loss program for more than a week but eight months of delicious food and great support and I'm wearing the same dress size as I did aged 21.

After a couple of weeks of Letting Things Slide due to birthdays and life generally I'm well up for a couple of strict weeks.

Signing in...BIWI there is a thread in AIBU from someone thinking about a gastric band. Have told her about LC so hope she comes over and at least looks.

AtYourCervix Tue 23-Apr-13 08:55:47

I'm looking. And humphing. And making excuses.

Tell me. Can I low carb if I don't do meat or fish?

Hello <sheeepish> I started last boot camp and sort of wandered off onto a pike of cake and toast and didn't come back blush
But! I have been boot camping for 2 weeks now and have got back in the gym so I will most definitely be joining you all smile
I won't be weighing weekly though as it sends me a bit potty.

deffo possible to low carb without meat or fish. and you can eat your own bodyweight in butter

BedHanger Tue 23-Apr-13 09:03:29

Can I join if I'm intending to do a Whole30, please?

EwanHoozami Tue 23-Apr-13 09:07:03

'ello AtYourCervix There's a great book by Rose Elliot called the Vegetarian Low Carb Diet Cookbook which has loads of great nutritional info. I use her recipes a lot. There were several vegetarians on the last Bootcamp who'll hopefully be along soon to extol the joys.

dontmeanto Tue 23-Apr-13 09:08:58

Can I sign in, please? Have a big wedding to attend in July (my partner's sister's), and need to shift this baby weight! I might have to do slightly modified version as I'm still bf my 8 week old DD.

Let's do this!

I'm in. But I am going to start tomorrow to give me a proper week on it before my Thai lunch on Thursday 2nd and champagne night on Fri 3rd.

Signing in. I'll add my name when I'm back on a pc.

I lost 29lb on the last Boot Camp smilesmile. Another stone and a bit to go until I reach target so if I get close in the next Boot Camp I'll be happy. Even if I only lose half that I'll be satisfied, as I know you need to slow the rate of weight loss as you get close to target.

At the moment I'm on Ubercamp (as of today) as I have a more immediate priority of getting in to my Nicole Farhi evening dress (probably 14 years since I last wore it but it's a classic style). I have until Saturday night.....blush

Oops missed one! Can't copy on here so can someone update please?

Me too please. LC seems to be the only diet that works for me. I've been easing myself in for the past week or so but will be hardcore from monday.

Count me in, I started towards the end of the last one, did really well for a few weeks, then rediscovered cake and chocolate, so am in need of BIWIs Big Stick blush.

Here I go again! Up and down like a bloody yo-yo - in need of some firm discipline.

Told myself I would be 11st something by the start of this next Bootcamp and as of today I am 12st 11 - argggghhhh. Lowest I got down to on the last bootcamp was 12st 3.5 which represented a 19.5 total loss over the 10 weeks. The first stone came off in the first 3 weeks though so I fanny-arsed around for the rest of the time putting on, taking off, putting on, taking off blah blah. If I got the same loss this time this would put me down to 11st 6 which would be a vast improvement. Trouble is, I want to be 10st 6 so I really have my work cut out.

Bring it on!

twinkle - Bootcamp consists of two strict weeks, followed by 8 weeks of Bootcamp Light, which is a bit more relaxed.

However, people do all manner of combinations. Some find that they like the strictness of Bootcamp and continue on that, some people to a hybrid of Bootcamp during the week and Bootcamp Light at the weekends.

It's up to you and what you find works for you.

I'm all about the flexibility grin

teaandthorazine Tue 23-Apr-13 13:03:49

Hello all

I'm probably not going to join the Bootcamp proper but if it's okay I may pop in and out! I know this might sound like overkill, but I can honestly say that Bootcamp changed my life - or at least these low-carb threads did (I wasn't always a perfect boot camper and can never eat breakfast grin) So I just wanted to let any nervous newbies know that this might well be the best decision you ever made!

I started low-carbing about this time last year, when I realised that after years of never having to watch my weight, my BMI was creeping into the overweight zone. So, not desperate straits weight wise, but I was a mindless snacker, addicted to sugar, bread and pasta, and feeling knackered, sick, bloated and lethargic all the time. In fact, I thought it was normal to feel that way.

Following BIWI's threads, I lost 20 lbs. I can honestly say it was easy. I've dropped pasta, bread, potatoes and sugar and really never looked back. I did have a blip over Xmas but as soon as I got back on the wagon, my energy returned, as did my glowing skin and flat, unbloated tummy! And the weirdest thing is, I couldn't care less if I never had a plate of pasta again.

I'm now following a slightly more 'relaxed' Primal style of eating, which allows for a bit more fruit and the odd sweet potato and occasional portion of rice. I eat very dark chocolate pretty much every day, and drink red wine or spirits. But the principles I learned on Bootcamp still remain, and I can honestly say that I'll eat this way forever. I've learned so much about food, and my body. I LOVE cooking now. It's even inspired me to consider a research proposal for my MSc (gestational diabetes and low-carb).

It is a bit unforgiving in the early days and you can feel a bit crappy in the first week but please, think of it as an education in your own body. It is SO worth it (and you can lose a lot more than 20lbs too). Apologies for the essay, and Good Luck and ENJOY IT!

Add me please.

I have fallen into bad ways over the winter. Too much work, too many colds has meant too many carbs. I feel urgh.

Will wind down the carbs ready to start. Looking forward to it!

Iamaslummymummy Tue 23-Apr-13 13:14:06

I'm in. I've fallen off the wagon since the last boot camp. Depression does that to me

Please can you add me

ToomuchWaternotWine Tue 23-Apr-13 13:31:19

Hi all, I'm back in please! Lost 20lbs on the first bootcamp I did (oct-dec), put on a bit over Xmas, lost it in 2 weeks back on bootcamp and have maintained around that weight ever since quite happily. I would like to lose another half a stone but I'm needing inspiration re cooking and recipes and, of course, the banter. Looking forward to it.

ToomuchWaternotWine Tue 23-Apr-13 13:31:49

Sorry can someone add me to list too, another useless ipad user here.

if you post your weight on the thread custy and SHOUT that someone needs to add it on the spreadsheet then you don't need to do anything else grin

Had to post and run!

Thanks for the welcomesmile

2.5lbs lost last week so a total of 7.5lbs in 2 weeksgrin, I celebrated with one glass of wine on Sunday night which I thoroughly enjoyed.

Solveij Tue 23-Apr-13 15:50:38

Hi, another one putting her hand up to join in, can someone add me to the list please. I started low carbing on Saturday, it's been ok so far but I have lots to lose so need to stick with it ... I need to muster up some willpower from somewhere.

frenchfries22 Tue 23-Apr-13 15:50:54

Hi
Would someone be so kind to add me please, can't do it on my iPad for some reason i started the new year boot camp and did really well but fell of the wagon spectacularly and ended up gaining a huge amount so now ten pounds heavier then last time, couldn't stick to it without the support. Can't wait to start again!!

VikingLady Tue 23-Apr-13 16:11:04

I'd like to join but don't know what I weigh! I want to get from a size 16 to a 12. As I don't own any scales, is there anywhere that I could get weighed, does anyone know?

slatternlymother Tue 23-Apr-13 16:16:44

viking most Boots' stores have weighing scales in smile

VikingLady Tue 23-Apr-13 16:37:12

Thanks! I'll check in on Thursday then!

BIWI Tue 23-Apr-13 18:05:37

Woo hoo! Look how many of us there are! Fab.

Custy - all the rules are on the spreadsheet (look at the tabs on the bottom)

You should find it easy though, as you are already the Low Carb Queen grin

tea - that was a lovely, hugely inspiring post.

HeySoulSister Tue 23-Apr-13 18:13:56

think I might hop back on board biwi

shifted 3 stone by lurking and following....then joined a local boot camp. fitness part is great but their eating methed is based on palleo. so no dairy but fruit and all veg allowed. i'm finding I've gone back to being hungry!!

some principles they have I will stick with,but rather not have the fruit tbh!

I'm all set to go tomorrow but am happy to stick to Monday weigh ins if that's easier for spreadsheet. Do we add ourselves? Will there be a new April start spreadsheet?

bambootoo Tue 23-Apr-13 19:21:39

Yes please, I lurked all through the last bootcamp because I didnt think I would stick with it and lost nearly a stone

I'm in but am on phone so alas can't put myself in the list. If anyone would kindly add me that would be lovely.

prettybird Tue 23-Apr-13 21:18:47

Been doing ubercamp today: slightly adapted the menu but pretty close with the exception of the little chocolate pots (dark chocolate, egg, milk, orange and cardamom) that were left over from Sunday night (we were supposed to have them last night).

Breakast: omelette in generous amount of butter
Lunch: tuna mayo with little gem lettuce and sliced cucumber
Dinner: Italian sausage (pure meat) with courgette ribbons sautéed in butter, broccoli microwaved steamed in butter.
Espresso sized chocolate orange and cardamom pot.
snacks a few slices of wafer thin ham

Lots of rooibos and water.

NigellasGuest Tue 23-Apr-13 21:22:51

Hi everyone,

I was another lurker on the last bootcamp and lost 18lbs. Have put a couple back on in the past few weeks due to general carb creep and lovely wine, so really looking forward to bootcamp starting on Monday so I can get back on the wagon properly! I've got about 2 stone to lose in total and I hope to get halfway there by the end of this bootcamp smile

Think I've added everyone below but feel free to fix it!

ChippingInLovesSpring Tue 23-Apr-13 23:12:32

AtYourCervix

I tried to PM you, but the PM function appears not to be working - so I hope you see this!

I low carb as a non egg eating vegetarian. It's do-able, but much harder. It's harder to get enough protein and harder to get a varied diet unless you really enjoy cooking - which I don't!

However, that said - it's do-able and it works! I've been low carbing 13 weeks and have lost 11kg/24lb and it would have been more but I stalled for a month, but I think it was the lattes sad I was counting the carbs in the milk and I was under 30 carbs a day so thought I'd be OK but apparently not... <sob>

BIWI Tue 23-Apr-13 23:31:16

... and can I just say to you all that if ChippingIn, who is a vegetarian (no eggs) can do it, then really anyone can do!

grin

geologygirl Wed 24-Apr-13 00:49:31

Me please!! I tried it a few weeks ago but I fell off the wagon after a week! Determined to stick it thus time as I have a christening and wedding coming up and I'm the biggest I've ever been blush

I'll add myself to the list when I'm home from work smile

changeforthebetter Wed 24-Apr-13 07:00:20

Gulp confused (clutches beloved granary toast to bosom for 5 more days!)

I adore carbs but the evidence is pretty impressive. Am reading the Briffa book at the moment. I am wondering how it is going to work in practice. DD1 is very carb-loving too and has a lot of MH issues (therapy begins this week) I wonder if more protein fewer carbs would help? I am very wary of altering the kids' diets.

changeforthebetter Wed 24-Apr-13 07:20:31

Please could someone add me? iPad won't let me thanks

hazchem Wed 24-Apr-13 08:02:50

Please can I come back. I'm feeling very fat and miserable! My shipping has arrived and none of my lovely winter clothes fit me. (it's getting cold down under)

Write here I pledge that I will weigh in for the next ten Mondays without fail! I will finish this bootcamp. smile

changeforthebetter I read your name as changeforthebutter which would be a very apt for bootcamp.

I am actually struggling right now, I think its knowing that bootcamp starts next week and that I will be having a couple of days "off course" while DS is in hospital that I seem to be giving myself permission to sneak in carbs!! I never thought Id say this, but I am looking forward to BIWI's stick being waved about!

penny i would go for any that are 'lump of meat with veg' and ask for the carb part to be left off the plate and for extra veg, so:

Pan fried lamb rump served with Greek salad £13.95 (check it doesn't come with couscous or something)

Slow cooked rose veal with chive and saffron risotto £14.50 (see if they will replace the risotto with salad or something)

Duck breast with dauphinoise potatoes, mixed veg and port sauce £16.95 (ask for no potatoes, check what the veg is - be aware that the sauce might be a bit sugary)

Whole grilled plaice with caper and dill butter, new potatoes and Summer greens £15.95 (no potatoes, please, extra greens)

Braised lamb shoulder with Dauphinoise potatoes, rosemary and redcurrant gravy £16.95 (no potatoes please, veg instead, sauce may be sugary)

10oz rump steak with watercress and horseradish butter, wild mushrooms, tomato and chips £17.95 (no chips, salad instead)

8oz steak burger topped with grilled bacon, Cheddar served with coleslaw and chips £11.95 (you can remove the bun, ask for no chips, salad instead. careful that the coleslaw isn't quite carby with onions and carrots and added sugar)

Ploughmans - Honey glazed ham, duck pate, Garstang Blue, Quickes Smoked Cheddar, pickles & crusty bread £10.50 (this would be fine without the bread, though the ham will be sugary so you might have to avoid that one)

PennyHofstadter Wed 24-Apr-13 11:52:45

Thank you Willie smile

also for the ploughmans, careful as pickles can include quite a bit of sugar

i think that if you're careful you'll be fine. the safest option i think is the pan-fried lamb rump with greek salad, though i would double-check what is in the salad. i would assume cucumber, tomatoes, feta, olives and onions, with a dressing, so you might want to avoid eating too many tomatoes and onions, and ask for plain olive oil rather than dressing.

don't stress yourself out worrying about it too much though, because you have to live your life, and you can only do your best!

PennyHofstadter Wed 24-Apr-13 11:59:02

I'm not massively keen on pickles tbh so I would avoid them anyway. At least it's given me a few options and some definites to avoid. I guess its sods law that the date most people could do was the start of bootcamp!

I'm in! Was travelling yesterday so only just saw this thread - 60+ lbs down since August, now tidying up the flabby bits!

slatternlymother Wed 24-Apr-13 12:38:22

changeforthebetter I read in Briffa's book that low card/high fat diets can actually help with depression. I had PND really badly, but tbh I've always been in 'that' area where if I don't keep myself occupied, I'm liable to be a bit depressed. Anyway, I've found that none of that has really been happening when I low carb it. I feel much more positive (periods notwithstanding!) and hopefully, your DD will too.

changeforthebetter Wed 24-Apr-13 12:55:34

Thanks Slatternlymother (wonderful name). I did wonder since our brains need fat to function well. My first depression came after a months' long pre-wedding diet marrying an arsehole grin

Are there any idiot-proof but sensible menu plans for novices. Dr B doesn't do those wink

BIWI Wed 24-Apr-13 13:06:13

Aubergine parmigiana layered baked aubergine, basil, tomato and Parmesan with Pesto linguine (N) £10.45

This would be a good low carb option, but obviously without the linguine - ask if you could have a green salad instead

Smoked haddock & salmon fishcakes with tomato salad £10.95

Nope definitely not! They will be mixed with potato and coated in breadcrumbs

Chicken breast with wild mushrooms, tarragon pappardelle pasta and Parmesan £12.95

Again, all fine apart from the pasta. See if they can replace it with some green veg/salad

Pan fried lamb rump served with Greek salad £13.95

Sounds perfect

Braised pork belly on stir-fried rice noodles with sticky teriyaki glaze (N) £12.95

Although the pork belly is fine, the glaze will be sweet/sugary (this is what makes it sticky) and obviously the noodles are out

Buttercross Farm free range pork, sage and onion sausages with butter mash and onion gravy £10.95

It's always difficult with sausages to know how carby they might be. Even good quality sausages, which have a higher meat content, can sometimes be too high in carbs. You'd have to miss out on the mash as well, so I'd probably give this option a miss

Steak and kidney suet pudding with mashed potato and buttered greens £12.95

No! Suet and mashed potato definitely not allowable!

Pappardelle Marinara- mussels, king prawns and calamari in a rich tomato and herb sauce on pappardelle £13.95

Nope

Slow cooked rose veal with chive and saffron risotto £14.50

The veal sounds lovely, but the risotto is obviously out.

Duck breast with dauphinoise potatoes, mixed veg and port sauce £16.95

Would be OK without the potatoes and also the sauce - which could be both sweet and thickened with flour/cornflour

Whole grilled plaice with caper and dill butter, new potatoes and Summer greens £15.95

Perfect, just ask for something low carb in place of the potatoes - extra summer greens, or some green salad

Crispy beef salad with sweet chilli and cashew nuts (N) £12.45

Probably not. Crispy beef is usually coated in flour before being deep fried, and the chilli sauce will be very carby - and cashew nuts aren't really low carb

Sweet potato, blue cheese and spinach lasagne, with garlic bread & rocket salad £10.45

Nope - sweet potato, pasta and bread all rule this out!

Braised lamb shoulder with Dauphinoise potatoes, rosemary and redcurrant gravy £16.95

Again, whilst the lamb would be perfect, you'd have to ask for a replacement for the potatoes. And a redcurrant gravy will probably be a bit too carby

10oz rump steak with watercress and horseradish butter, wild mushrooms, tomato and chips £17.95

Perfect, just without the chips!

8oz steak burger topped with grilled bacon, Cheddar served with coleslaw and chips £11.95

Ask for the burger without the bun (or just leave it), and ask for a salad instead of the chips. Beware that coleslaw can also be quite carby so go easy with that

Honey glazed ham with free-range eggs and chips £10.95

OK - but the honey will add carbs. And again, no chips!

Deep fried haddock in beer batter with chips, mushy peas and tartare sauce £12.25

All of this will be high carb - unless you just picked the fish out of the batter

Ploughmans - Honey glazed ham, duck pate, Garstang Blue, Quickes Smoked Cheddar, pickles & crusty bread £10.50

Would be fine, if you could eat it without the bread.

Hope that helps. It's never easy to navigate your way around a menu, although if you're prepared to ask the restaurant to make substitutions then it's doable. But some of these dishes would suffer without their carby element, I think.

Just imagine, though, if you were faced with the same menu if you were trying to follow a low calorie or low fat diet - your choices would be even narrower.

changeforthebetter, for a sample menu you couldn't go far wrong with the menu below, which BIWI created. if you're going low carb for the first time you may find that you need to eat a piece of cheese or something occasionally to stop the carb cravings getting the better of you, but you shouldn't feel hungry.

Day 1

Mushroom omelette, fried in butter

Tuna mayonnaise wrapped in Little Gem lettuce leaves, with sliced cucumber

2 chicken thighs, skin on, pan-fried in butter and olive oil
80g frozen whole leaf baby spinach, with garlic butter and 100g broccoli florets fried with 50g shallot and chilli flakes

Day 2

2 eggs, scrambled with butter

Smoked salmon and 100g avocado with 80g green leafy salad in a home-made vinaigrette (olive oil, wine vinegar, salt and pepper)

Home-made beefburger (100g steak mince, mixed with salt/pepper and olive oil), with home-made coleslaw and 150g celeriac chips

Day 3

2 boiled eggs

2 chicken thighs, (cold – but pan-fried as on Day 1), with coleslaw and 80g salad with vinaigrette dressing

Roast pork (and crackling), with 200g swede mashed with lots of butter) and 200g braised fennel

And as another example, my menu yesterday was:

Breakfast - 2 eggs scrambled in butter with wilted spinach
Lunch - leftover cold roast chicken with mayonnaise and lettuce
Supper - courgette, aubergine and sweet pepper roasted in olive oil with roasted halloumi cheese and lemon juice

hope this helps!

BIWI Wed 24-Apr-13 13:07:24

there are more menus in the spreadsheet here, but it's worth noting that these are particularly low carb, so you can be a bit more flexible and include dairy too, as long as you're within the rules of bootcamp

changeforthebetter Wed 24-Apr-13 13:23:45

thanks (In awe of the collective wisdom of MN - again smile)

DramaAndCrisis Wed 24-Apr-13 13:36:07

Can I rejoin? I had a different name previously, but since I've put on most of what I lost while DH has lost a resounding 24lbs and looks terrific, it's probably best I have a different name. I keep sliding off the wagon into a pile of cake.

PennyHofstadter Wed 24-Apr-13 13:54:37

Thanks BIWI. I completely agree with you about low fat/low carb. We went to a similar restaurant at Christmas and one of the party was on a calorie counting diet. He hardly ate a thing and while everyone else was tucking into puddings (well if you can't at Christmas when can you?) he refused to have anything in case he went over his 1500 calories for the day. He's lost 3 stone and done incredibly well but calorie counting seems such a miserable way to lose weight. IMO of course.

MaryBeardfanclub Wed 24-Apr-13 14:00:34

we had a discussion about why the 5:2 did not suit us on the last thread - Zoe Harcombe has posted this analysis of the diet, her take is that it's calorie restriction by another name. Reading it made me feel such relief at finding LCHF. I am so happy I have been liberated from the nonsense of self starvation and calories. Eat Real Food - who knew it could be so simple!

MaryBeardfanclub Wed 24-Apr-13 14:02:37

Penny I feel so sorry for all the ladies with their weight watchers yoghurts at work as I smugly pour organic thick cream into my coffee...

fridge at work is FULL of low fat yoghurt and low calorie hummus, and everyone's eating flavoured rice cakes now that summer is on the horizon

Biscuit357 Wed 24-Apr-13 14:27:23

Me please....

I want to get down to the weight I was before I had my 'baby' (now walking and talking) before we try for another one. About 1.5 stone to go!

slatternlymother Wed 24-Apr-13 14:29:27

I've got a bit of a problem blush

I keep getting a horrible tummyache. I've had it for 3 nights on the trot now, and it begins about an hour after I've eaten my main meal, although I do tend to get a mild one in the afternoon. Again, after I've eaten.

I am fine at breafast with full fat natural yoghurt, and at lunch I'm having salad with cheese and coleslaw, or egg mayo or something similar. If I snack, I maybe have a few nuts or a cold sausage. Dinner last night was a fry up with mushrooms, sausages, bacon and scrambled eggs.
The day before was similar, except we had chilli for dinner.

What is going on? I started properly keeping an eye again last Saturday; 12 days ago! Surely if this was a withdrawal thing, I'd have noticed it earlier than this. Last night I tried taking Gaviscon, to no avail. In the end I knocked back a couple of painkillers as it was the only way I could sleep confused

Can anyone help me out here? flowers

slatternly, where is the pain precisely? could it be gallbladder related? This is usually upper right side under ribs and radiating to your back. Diets high in fat can trigger a gallbladder attack.

Oh slatternly that doesn't sound good sad. As you say, though, if it was withdrawal you would have it a lot sooner.

I don't know what to suggest really. Any other symptoms?

(BTW - not much veg/salad going on in your day ...)

No other symptoms though. It feels just like heartburn, but lower down.

Are you under a lot of stress at the moment? (This is usually what triggers my heartburn, although mine doesn't manifest itself as pain, but more a very unpleasant sensation in my throat)

Can someone add me to the list please???

Got a long weekend break at Centre Parcs booked - last time I went I was heavily pregnant and I felt like an elephant in the pool!
I would like to go looking very svelte and sexy!

I need the motivation and fab recipes from all you ladies - loved the January thread.

mrdarceych Wed 24-Apr-13 20:37:15

Please can someone add me to the list! Need to shift a stone.. Have been trying low carbing for couple of weeks.. No bread/pasta/rice/potatoes but have no idea what i weighed when I started! Bought myself a set of digi scales today and am 10 stone 1. This is just what I need..motivation and support! Looking forward to the ride!!

milliemoomay Wed 24-Apr-13 21:36:05

I'm in! We had three weeks solid of visitors last month, I bootcamped (just read info from last thread) for two weeks and lost 9lbs, taking me to the lowest weight since I had three children in quick succession. Then I lapsed a bit, got my period and craved carbs and completely caved. rubbish!

I am going home for 6 weeks in the summer (live in qatar) and I WILL be slimmer! Now that the last baby is two, I really need make a move!

Me me me! Im in! Will need to log onto pc later and add my name as I can't seem to do it from my phone.

BIWI Thu 25-Apr-13 08:54:23

Just to say - I'm away today until Sunday so will have limited access to the internet. If I don't reply to any questions I'm not ignoring you!

dontmeanto Thu 25-Apr-13 10:36:22

Getting really excited! Been unwell last couple weeks so looking forward to more energy, less lethargy that people have said they get from low-carbing. Plus the recipe thread is amaze-balls! grin

LackaDAISYcal Thu 25-Apr-13 10:55:10

slatternly, it might be a bug? There is a lot of it here at the moment. DS2 has had it and I started with it yesterday sad. Horrible tummy pains, worse after eating plus headache, glands up and strangely, it feels like every single tooth in my head is aching. Not nice at all. And I feel bad that I thought DS2 was being a bit "man-flu" about it, but it really is quite nasty blush

Mind you, I can't face eating so it will be a good pre-low carb boost wink

Me me me!

Rejoining. Started on last bootcamp and lost 10 lbs in 7 weeks and then fell off the wagon with an almighty bump.

I hate cooking but have recently started counselling for anxiety and depression and am hoping that I can get some help on staying motivated as this is DEFINITELY the right way of eating for me.

Good luck everyone, and congrats to all who have already started and lost weight!

BIWI and Willie, thanks thanks again for starting this thread.

I have picked up some reduced pork belly strips in Tescos - can anyone tell me the best way to prepare them?

The packet says just cook in oven. Is it best to give them a bit of a fry first, to get them crispy? Any ideas for a sauce, anyone? Thanks!

Please could some one add me, I'm stuck in bed with a bad headache on my iPad?

Yes please yes please!

Am a couple of pounds below what I had assumed was a realistic goal (3 kids and 10 years older etc) but was still very easily losing at the end of the last Bootcamp - have been on maintenance since then for a bit of a break, but am interested to see where my natural equilibrium actually is! (Although at goal, my body is by. I means bikini ready, so there is still scope!)

Back again ...need to shift the half stone that has crept on over the past year ...

Oops I appear to have picked up halfs' post too, sorry! The joys of attempting vaguely complicated copy and pasting by phone.

Signing in!

I lost 17lbs last summer low carbing-Pig 2 Twig but fell by the wayside in the winter....

I go on holiday in exactly 10 weeks', so a good reason to stop lurking and join bootcamp!

prettybird Fri 26-Apr-13 08:24:05

Three days of ubercamp and I have lost......


nothing sad

Having said that, I've just tried on the dress for tomorrow night and there is only one button which is gaping ever so slightly and only after I've moved, so a wee skelf of thin black material behind it so you can't see the wee glimpse of flesh and I'll need to hold my breath all night grin

Add me in please! Did low carbing a while ago and it really worked but gave up and am back and more determined. Will weigh myself and post for spreadsheet

JaxTellerIsAllMine Fri 26-Apr-13 10:09:36

Ive lost 3lb this week, and I havent been very strict, but I am looking forward to bootcamp next week. Just going to do a bit of online shopping.

NigellasG - Thank you for adding me smile

Another one an ipad so could someone please add me to the list? I've lost 4kg LCing and have another 6kg to go. Hoping that I'll be able to get to my target by the end of this 10 week bootcamp.

Excited for Monday now!

Hi I would really like to join in, I really need to lose weight but find it so hard to stick to anything. I'm really hoping this might help!

MummyAisha Fri 26-Apr-13 17:41:54

Just adding thread to TIO so I can add my name when on laptop later. Can't copy and paste all names on list as on phone

Um, I think PoppylovesCheese left a lump of us out when cutting and pasting.

No sure if it matters if we are not all on the final list. (And I am very tempted to say 'oh well' and not do the bootcamp after all, but that would be cheating!):

I am not getting on well with Google Docs spreadsheets blush I want to C&P so I can print a shopping list and menu plan for the week. Is there an utter idiot's guide to this sort of thing?

twinklestar2 Sat 27-Apr-13 13:25:11

Does anyone know what they're planning on eating the first day? If you post your menu it may help others?

If anyone needs an incentive - I started on Wednesday and have lost 3.5 pounds so far..........

newlark Sat 27-Apr-13 16:43:07

I started on Thurs and have lost 2lbs - I know it will be water but it does give you a mental boost smile

My first day was:
Breakfast: cheese omelette (with a bix of ground flaxseed mixed in - couldn't taste it)
Lunch: big green salad with smoked tofu and feta and mayo
Tea: salmon with courgettes and spinach in a cheese sauce (made by mixing cream cheese and grated cheddar with the veg) followed by greek yoghurt with chopped hazelnuts and flaxseed
Snacks - olives and babybel cheese

I'm almost veggie and only occasionally eat fish so I will be eating a fair amount of cheese and nuts which I know might slow the weight loss down a bit...

TheUnicornsGoHawaiian Sat 27-Apr-13 17:48:31

happyhippy 6 stone loss needed for me too.

Wow, I just tried the celeriac dauphinoise for the first time - it was brilliant! (Well, followed a BBC recipe, but used all cream, no milk, and Parmesan instead of whatever cheese they suggested). If I hadn't known, I wouldn't have realised it was potato in there.

Unicorn and happyhippy - last August I was looking at having to lose 6 stone. I'm now about half a stone away from having done just that - so believe me when I tell you you CAN do this, and without much of a struggle really. Just follow the rules, and white-knuckle it through any temptations, and you'll get there. Look at it in half stone chunks - less daunting that way, and treat yourself to something nice (which isn't food) each time you hit the next half stone goal. Best of luck to both of you smile

...of course I mean wasN'T potato in there...sigh

Signing up - I lost lots this time last year and got within a couple of pounds of my target thanks to these threads.. Sadly it has crept back on since the Autumn so I'm now over a stone up.

ThAnks for adding me!

renaldo Sun 28-Apr-13 08:36:24

Please may I join? Want to lose 10kgs before July. I'm on an iPad so can't cut n paste

JakeBullet Sun 28-Apr-13 08:47:11

Can't wait to get going again.....may even ubercamp for three days first. We had Indian last night and it was delicious.....but not Low Carb.

geologygirl Sun 28-Apr-13 09:07:51

Ive already signed up but realise I weigh 158 lbs (and not 147 as I said earlier). Im nearly as heavy as I was when I was pregnant! Feel awful..

JakeBullet Sun 28-Apr-13 09:18:07

Don't panic geologygirl, I'm heavier and 158lbs seems a distant dream grin. I will get there.....and you will be even thinner so I will still be envying you.

geologygirl Sun 28-Apr-13 09:29:53

Was just a bit of a shock because I weighed 147 a few weeks ago. Ive been stuck in with my chickenpox infected toddler....and have eaten so much crap out of sheer boredom!

But yes we will definitely get there! At least we are doing something about the flab :-)

middleagedspread Sun 28-Apr-13 09:40:18

Please would someone kindly add me? I can't/don't know how to copy & paste.

changeforthebetter Sun 28-Apr-13 10:19:57

Plucked up the courage to weigh myself yesterday 10st 3lb hmm That is about a stone over the weight which makes me feel healthy. It explains why my wardrobe options are narrowing, why I was starting to get breathless after any exertion. I've been sort of lo-carb lite this weekend. No bread,pasta, potatoes or sugar. Based on ideas from the Briffa book. I feel much more energetic and I'm not hungry. Spinach cooked in a ton of olive oil and butter was great grin I'm sure some of this is psychological but hey, so what smile

JakeBullet - what is ubercamp please?

topsi Sun 28-Apr-13 12:21:07

can someone remind me about the levels of carbs we should be eating to lose weight please I have forgotten. Lost weight last year low carbing but they have been creeping back in and my waitline is creeping up again.
My 2 squares of dark choc a day have increased to half a bar 10g carbs!! eeek, I need to get back on the straight and narrow!

DorisIsWaiting Sun 28-Apr-13 12:27:15

Hi Biwi can I sign up again too. been roughly low carbing since the last boot camp (manageed to lose 1.5 stone last time).

Am now 80.2kg (have been getting my carb cravings out of the way this weekened!)

Finbar Sun 28-Apr-13 12:27:50

HI BIWI Finbar back again!
...still thankfully much lighter than originally ( It didn't all go back on!)..just need to lose a bit more for summer.

Can you remind me when looking at carb content of foods - it is anything under 3.0 g per 100g is generally ok?

And what the difference between Carbs and the subdivision on some labelling of 'Sugars'? Is one more important than the other?
Cheers

MummyAisha Sun 28-Apr-13 13:01:21

Thank you plinkyplonks for adding me to the list

Just about to go out to do my shopping in prep to start tomorrow. Scouring the site for meal ideas to plan my weeks menu

toomuchtoask Sun 28-Apr-13 13:42:39

Can I join? Do I add myself to the spreadsheet? This is my first time doing low carbing.

Yoghurty Sun 28-Apr-13 13:47:40

Right, I'm all ready.
Did a big shop yesterday and stocked up on meat, veg and butter!
I've been LC-ing since January but have been eating dark chocolate and 'baking', so am looking forward to going back to basics.

Roll on tomoro grin

Tigglette Sun 28-Apr-13 14:01:13

Can I join in please, I did the last one very loosely but managed to loose a good bit of weight and have kept it off so far - though I can see carbs creeping back in there. I'm on iPad so can't cut and paste the list....

Off shopping this afternoon for provisions

Ilisten2theradio Sun 28-Apr-13 14:22:20

Me too please, but I wont be able to start and keep it up until the week after.
I have been low carbing since Jan though and have lost 18lb so far. I will be low carbing as much as possible next week but life is going to get in the way too much to be able to commit to bootcamp until the week after.

TreeLuLa Sun 28-Apr-13 15:56:09

Hello!

Me too please. Lost a stone on the last bootcamp - hoping for the same again
grin

Francois Sun 28-Apr-13 16:16:34

Please can you add me too. Apologies I'm on phone and not mastered copying and pasting yet

Hoping to lose a stone or so, always found low carb very effective in shifting weight in the past. It's keeping it off that's the problem for me!

Lavenderhoney Sun 28-Apr-13 17:04:00

Mr lavenderhoney wants to join in as wellsmile he won't be posting though, is he still allowed to be on the spreadsheet?

I am toying with having a final vodka and tonic or a big glass of water. Or a cocktail. Complete with swizzle sticksmile

prettybird Sun 28-Apr-13 17:06:14

My dh (aka Handsomebird) was on the spreadsheet but didn't post.

warzonemummy Sun 28-Apr-13 18:15:44

Please add me. I weigh 150lb and want to get back to my per baby weight of 120lb. I am breast feeding my almost nine month old. She is having three meals so I guess she should be okay.

I will add myself on spreadsheet and will add my aunt there too she is not on mn so she can't add herself here. Lets call her warzoneaunty

Ilovemyteddy Sun 28-Apr-13 18:43:39

I'm in, having spectacularly fallen off the wagon in the past few weeks. I need The Big Stick to be waved in my direction grin

This has been my carbiest weekend for ages. We had family round yesterday and today. I cooked yesterday and we ate out today. When you are not Bootcamping the carbs just creep up don't they? Peppers and spring onion in the salad, balsamic vinegar in the dressing, Stornaway black pudding in the stuffed chicken. grin It was lovely though.

Right, am off to munch on a piece of dark chocolate before it's contraband.

Yama Sun 28-Apr-13 20:02:32

Oh, and for dinner tonight, I fried some sausages in chicken fat (from yesterdays roasted chicken thighs). I made cauli rice then fried it in the chicken/sausage juices, chopped the sausages and re-added. Went down well with the kids (and me). I added peas to the kids portions.

Quick and easy.

HappyHippyChick Sun 28-Apr-13 20:17:34

Glad to see I'm not the only one needing to lose loads, and wow, congratulations Furry that's amazing, just the inspiration I need.

WeOnlyPlannedTheFirst Sun 28-Apr-13 20:20:47

May I join? Just coming to end of first week on natural ketosis diet so low carb bootcamp seems a sensible way forward now I'm sorting my own meals out.

Can't seem to copy and paste list though - sorry

Laubea Sun 28-Apr-13 20:25:27

I would like to join too! But no idea how to add myself to the spreadsheet?

Hello bootcampers new and old! Last week was all a bit manic for me with work stuff, but am ready to go. I still have tonnes to lose (at least 5 stone), but am in the groove...

Brunch - three egg omlette with mushrooms, bacon, cheese and peppers
D - Roast lamb with green beans and a few carrots (all veg smothered in salt crystal butter obvs!).
Probably have some full fat greek yoghurt with vanilla powder later.

Laubea - don't worry for now, just post tomorrow on the first thread with your starting weight and we will get you sorted on there...

i believe i have added most people to the spreadsheet so far, so if it comes to tomorrow and when biwi posts the new thread you can't find your name, I'm really sorry i've missed you off. you can add yourself to the bottom of the list of names, in the next box down (DON'T WORRY about alphabetical order - that can easily be sorted). if you're not confident about using the spreadsheet yourself, then please do just shout and someone else will add you. the spreadsheet does work best in the google chrome browser, i'm afraid it can be a little frustrating in explorer

Evening all!

Just back from a very, very, very high carb long weekend in France, and I am definitely in need of Bootcamp.

timidviper Sun 28-Apr-13 20:59:59

Can I just tell anyone who is lurking and would like to join us but is scared of posting their weight that there are a number of us larger ladies who do not feel comfortable with that and so put our starting weight as 100 and count down from there. If I told you my weight I'd have to kill you grin

sammisatt Sun 28-Apr-13 21:01:51

Can you add me please? Thank you!

DangerousMouse Sun 28-Apr-13 21:07:45

Please can you add me to the list too

twinklestar2 Sun 28-Apr-13 21:10:51

Apologies for all the questions but what can I have for lunch that I can buy from Tesco / M&S and keep in the work fridge. Happy to make salads every day... can I buy cooked chicken? What about fresh soups?

Laubea Sun 28-Apr-13 21:30:16

Great! I am now on the spreadsheet! Thank you!

LaurieLees Sun 28-Apr-13 22:04:54

twinklestar if you are happy with salads can you jut take your own? That is what I do. Other than that, yes cooked meats, prawns etc good (check labels in case if flavourings using cabs etc or carby marinades). Also check salad dressings too - many have sugar or balsamic, making and taking your own will be much safer tbh (and yummier).

Hello there! I think I nearly missed you all! I can't add myself to the list from here, it i think I am still on the spreadsheet?

Good luck everyone!

Oh dear I think I should have signed up over the weekend, if I'm not too late can you add me in Willie? Starting at 139...

halfthesize Mon 29-Apr-13 07:33:40

Ok so not very happy as gone up top 9st 8lbs thats what happens when you are not very good from December through to April blush

Cant wait to get going today, good luck everyonesmile

carbalanche Mon 29-Apr-13 10:09:57

Is this the thread or is there going to be a brand spanking new one?

Am so in need of this again.

Starting at 12st 12.

Best of luck everyone!

LackaDAISYcal Mon 29-Apr-13 10:16:27

I think BIWI will start a new one, but as the site has been down all morning...

So far so good foodwise. Two boiled eggs and some left over roast beef for breakfast. Having Pepsi Max cravings, but I know this will pass! Buuut, I woke up this morning covered in a very itchy rash and feeling really grotty. Doc thinks it's an allergic reaction to something or a lupus flare up confused. It might take all my will to bootcamp in this state sad

PennyHofstadter Mon 29-Apr-13 10:25:46

This past week as been a carb overload and it's shown on the scales this morning, last week I was coming in around 174/5lb and this morning was 179.25! A huge increase in a matter of days. Feeling very low and have already had tears this morning blush. My only hope is that as it went on so quickly it will come off again quickly. I've started my day with a cheese omelette fried in butter and I've already managed 1ltr of water.

MillyMollyMandy78 Mon 29-Apr-13 10:26:12

Weighed in this morning at 11st 7lbs. That means I've got one and a half stone to lose to get into my healthy weight range. Not happy but need to sort it out

BIWI Mon 29-Apr-13 10:31:49

Sorry all - I couldn't start a new thread as I couldn't get onto MN until now.

Will rectify it and post a link shortly.

caramelwaffle Mon 29-Apr-13 10:35:52

Rejoining as I lost weight previously on the winter Bootcamp.

CrystalTits Mon 29-Apr-13 10:47:22

Joining bootcamp for the first time - I think I posted on the wrong thread yesterday. Been LCing for a couple of days with a couple of transgressions but already losing the bloat. BIWI do we add our weight to the spreadsheet ourselves? Thank you flowers
