Hi ive really had enough now I need to loose about a stone well thats what wii fit says lol
I thought it maybe helpful to find a buddy who wants to loose weight aswell to egg each other on then I think im more likely to stick with it im a stay at home mum to a two year old so finding time for exercise is getting difficult. Im writing up a healthy shopping list tonight and I plan to start my diet tomorow, I actually eaten three magnums today which is terrible lol

rubieblue25 Wed 26-Jun-13 21:16:43

Yeah i need to lose way more than a stone .Ive had three strawberry tarts today ,disgrageful aint it.i am a sahm so only exercice i am able to do is walk to the park which is not even half a mile away .I always get really dizzy when i diet as im anemiac so i have to be careful .What u got on ur shopping list .

karrie8 Wed 26-Jun-13 21:32:56

rubieblue25 Thu 27-Jun-13 16:18:03

karrie8 Thu 27-Jun-13 17:18:00

Thats good youve done well im going to weigh myself later and then weigh myself every two weeks. The my fitness app is very useful have you got it aswell, yes the links are interesting, I know its only first day but ive found it helpful being able to chat on here about it all x

karrie8 Thu 27-Jun-13 17:18:56

karrie8 Thu 27-Jun-13 20:29:53

Well I managed to go on will fit and stick to the calories the app said so I am pleased with myself I feel ok too not hungry

rubieblue25 Thu 27-Jun-13 21:57:52

No i dont have that app on my fone. Its good u are only going to weigh urself every two weeks as some people get too obsessed and weigh themselves every day or so x

karrie8 Fri 28-Jun-13 09:11:01

Yes I think that happens and then we get disapointed then give u. Hope you have a good day x

rubieblue25 Fri 28-Jun-13 17:16:50

Have you tried any of the workout dvds ,im wondering if they any good as the weather not so good to go out walking and as a single parent i cant really afford to join a gym .

karrie8 Fri 28-Jun-13 18:23:52

I havnt no sounds a good idea, oh your like me single parent its rather hard to fit exercise in anyway especially when on own. I have a crosstrainer and the wii fit. I have just one child two year old, how old and many do you have?

rubieblue25 Fri 28-Jun-13 22:52:09

I have two girls ages 6 and 4 .Yeah its hard to gettime to think about yourself or your health sometime .I have put on 4 stone in 4 years due to antidepressants and its hard to lose it .i get sugar cravings ,do u? X

karrie8 Sat 29-Jun-13 10:49:45

Yeah anti depressants do that :-/ I should be on them but I get given them and to worried to take them.
I do get sugar craveings to try and give myself some energy I have stuck to my healthy eating and exercise. Today son is with dad so im catching up on housework etc

rubieblue25 Sat 29-Jun-13 11:17:47

Thats good you sticking with it .Im eating 1600 cals daily just now and im starving ,i cant imagine eating less than that at the moment.Anti-depressants can be great if u find one that suits you,everyone gets different side effects from different ones or some get no side effects.I find prozac amazing but doc changed me to citralopram and they were not right for me so ,the side effects i had were bad .i think doc will need to put me back to prozac .Try and getsome time to relax today while you little one is away .xx

karrie8 Sat 29-Jun-13 11:22:11

Yes ive been starveing too lol im on 1330 cals I must have been having so much more than this before. Yes I here prozac is good for hardly any side effects. Hope you have a good day do you get a break from being mum at all?

come and join BIWi's bootcamp threads in the low carb section. There is a spread sheet with full instructions on the eating plan in the first post of each thread, its low carb and you can eat as much as you want of what you can eat.

I've lost 16 pounds since May 6th and never been hungry. I felt a bit grotty first week giving up sugar and starch but don't even think about them now. I've never eaten healthier and my appetite has reduced greatly now I'm not craving sugar all the time. I used to live on Crunchie bars for breakfast and lunch most days.

don't torture yourselves on a low fat/ low calorie diet. Low fat can actually make you more depressed as your brain needs fat to keep on top of things.

rubieblue25 Sat 29-Jun-13 12:08:28

Oh i think i was eating aabout 3000 a day before.Well my oldest at schooland youngest starts nursery in august . Im in scotland so our schools j ust broke up yesterday for 6 or 7 weeks so i will get plenty of exercise tidying round after them xx

karrie8 Sat 29-Jun-13 12:33:27

Oh yes you will be busy xx im going to check that other thread out but I still keep you updated
