Ok despite eating crap 4 days this week I'm down a 1lb ( but think this gown to intense training for next Weekend ) but back to being good as found the junk made me feel learthgic and bloated am eating lot more calories but back to protein based and gluten free
Shall have good week then 5 days of after but will aim keep it reasonable
Weigh in day. I have put on about 2 lbs but i don't care because i am still in the 10s! 153.7!
Had a roast dinner yesterday followed by two plates of fruit crumble and custard and three very rich truffles. I ate so much that when dd1 wanted to have dinner in pizza express we went and I was still full so I just drunk a herbal tea. Still full this morning too so I've gone without breakfast. To think there was a time when I would have just eaten more and more. I still haven't quite got the hang of knowing when I'm full during a meal but I often just have snacks rather than a full meal when I'm not hungry.
Wilbury, I am feeling quite tempted to go to the gym. Might start looking about for a sports bra.
Wilbury I started on the virtual band weightloss app and I don't really understand how but I did have a couple of weeks of eating sensibly. Then I learnt about mfp and have been calorie counting ever since. I aim for 1200 to 1500 a day.
Baking novice I'm intending to switch to 5:2 or 6:1 to maintain. I have done 2 fasts after periods of heavy eating (like this week) to kind of kickstrt the diet. Have you found the thread with low cal recipes? I had a lovely butternut squash and chorizo casserole from that thread thread but on a normal day rather than fast.
Realised I was wrong earlier and from Monday to Monday I lost nearly a lb! I got confused because I did an extra weigh in before Easter to see if I was in the 10s and I have put on weight since then. So I am very pleased to have lost and to still be less than 11 after eating so much this weekend.
Back to the diet today. Just under 1200 cals thanks to a lovely veggie curry and I have enough left over for tomorrow. Just need to not eat too much chocolate. I only got one egg but dc and dh got loads so I need to not eat them. I expect you ladies to give me a virtual whip, or some other punishment, if I scoff the kids' eggs!
Fantastic result coffee, you must be so close to your final target.
Right, it looks like I will be able to book a holiday for July 22nd . Just need to finalise place we will be going to and check out a holiday dog care place and book everything. Dogs alone costing £250 for home from home place!
So now I really have to try and lose as much weight as possible! Going to look into the 5.2 diet but worried about dds asking why not eating any tea etc on fast days.
That's bad news about the cooker, it's such a hassle getting things fixed.
It's good news about the holiday, I need to book one for July too. I suppose my target date for weight loss is July. That's 3 months to lose 7 - 13 lbs depending on whether I lose it on my stomach.
We have got a mini break booked next week, just two days in Brighton. I'm wondering if dh will mind if I go to the hotel gym at dds bedtime. He'll probably faint, I am definitely more of a couch potato than gym bunny. I'm going to try to diet even when we're away. My biggest challenge is going to be breakfast if the hotel offers a fry up, pastries, cereal etc.
Dive in , we're all doing own thing but what there is in this thread Is a lot of support
Woe johnnyon holiday and planning be good I'm not planning be good at all next week [ grin]
Bleah on the oven , bad timing . Do you think that was past straw hence malteasers or is it a combination of things ? . Rather than think diet can you think just swapping one non healthy thing for a more healthy thing
Been good after my piggy weekend but my Pepsi max drinking rocketed up but it's school holidays and befn stuck in plus I needed the oomph it's giving me as been moving rooms around which then means needs tidying up spring clean style . Advantage I hope that as we're away from mon-fri next week . Then little two out with their dad all day following sat . In theory house stay tidy so when back school on mon I can do nothing but flop ( been organised uniforms washed dried hung up in wardrobes ready < evil mum >
Hello everyone, can I join? 4 years ago I lost all the babyweight and more after having DS2, and then ever since going back to work FT have spent 4 years putting it all back on again. I comfort eat and am getting through a bout of depression, but do recognise that eating healthily and doing some exercise will help me feel better, whereas crisps, sweets and wine have the opposite effect.
Currently 13.10 and first goal is to beat DH to lose a stone...
Have found your stories very inspirational, I know it's not going to be easy.
Combination of things Human. Plus AF due end of the week! I want to lose weight but it's just so damn hard to find food I actually enjoy eating. I've said this before but I seem to have gone off food apart from crap.
Welcome abgirl. A bit of a competition is always a good thing, how are you going to beat your dh?
Hello rusmum I'm just losing my last stone. The weight is slowly coming off but it can be boring to get such slow results. But I'm determined to get there.
tortoise are there no healthy snacks you like? (Not that I can talk, I'm still munching on Easter chocolate.) I find it is easy to eat maltesers and stuff because they're there, you don't need to do any preparation, washing, peeling etc. at one point I bought some snack sized packets of dried apricots and raisins for when I needed a sugary snack and some options hot chocolate. I find I don't really need them now but I do have a packet of raisins in my handbag in case I fancy something when I'm out.
Well, I do like apples, bananas and grapes. Not keen on dried fruits.
It's lunch time and I can't find anything I want. I've had a bag of tasteless WW crisps (reduced in local shop, thought would try them). There is tomato soup in the cupboard and tins of beans. Just don't fancy anything. I'd happily eat another bag of crisps or a piece of cake though. Right now, I'm having nothing.
