Zalen, glad you're back and only a smidgen over 12 . That's brilliant.
I've been all over the place, good days, bad days. I haven't been updating my fitness pal. I have been very negative about myself and worried about putting all the weight back on but when I weighed myself - for the first time in two weeks - I have lost about 0.8lbs which I am very pleased with. I eat well but have had lots of snacks recently and I focus on how naughty I've been, get depressed, and then have 1 or 2 pieces of toast to compensate. Then I get depressed about that although it's hardly anything really.
So I am 133.8 which is just over 9 1/2 stones. I still want to go into the 8s because my stomach is larger than I'd like. If I get time I might start weighing myself daily. The main thing is I need to be positive.
Arty, good luck this afternoon. Did you manage control on Friday? I hope you had a good time either way.
I made it!! 11st 13.8 this morning, that's 3 stone off since November 15th, about 5 & 1/2 months
New target, into the 10's before the big family holiday at the end of August, that's 4 months, maybe I should make that into the 9's . Let's not push it though, I haven't been under 10 since I was a teenager
Yay! That's brilliant news. It wouldn't surprise me if you get to 9 st 7 by then and I'm still here! It has taken me 19 months to lose 4 1/2 stone. Actually it took me about 12 months and I've yoyoed ever since.
I had a very good day yesterday. Tuna salad and cottage pie for meals with only 3 biscuits so the best I've done in a long time. Meeting a friend in london for lunch so it might be hard to make a sensible choice. Tea will either be another tuna salad, using yesterdays ingredients or perhaps a tuna and mushroom omelette.
Another good day yesterday. Chicken soup and bread at lunchtime. Grapes for a snack and then dinner was a tuna salad and omelette.
To my delight I was 3lbs down today since Monday! It won't necessarily last as I'll struggle at the weekend but it is a big boost. I am currently making dd2s pasta lunch while nibbling on a carrot so feeling very virtuous.
Well done cookie. Every loss is a good one. I remember you have a graduation or wedding coming up. Have you bought a nice new dress?
I am curretly in soft play with dd2. The food is so horrible. I had a tuna jacket potato which seemed about the healthiest option but dd2 wanted a pizza and chips so it will take all my willpower not to pick at them.
Well done Johnny that is great news. I can't have my weigh in at the Drs this week as its a bank holiday so will have to wait until next Monday. I did try on my dodgy scales and they are showing a slight loss of 1lb but I am not sure how accurate that is. I will take it though as I need a bit of an boost! Here's hoping to a good healthy food week. Chicken tangle pie with lots of veg for tea tonight.
