<Parks ample arse on thread> New thread, good work Lizzy

Bssh well done on the 1lb weight gain, great for a holiday! Let alone with TOM and returning to exercise. Especially as it sounds like you've not held back on the treats - this must be the fabled sense of balance that I hear some people can develop wink - never had it myself...

Randall you fecking rock Dude.

I luffs you all Chiefs and miss the chatting.

<marks place so can catch up with thread properly when the computer is free next week>

Au revoir mes petites grin
Off to undo all my hard work. I gave oacjed gym kit and we are taking the bikes, so hopefully won't be too bad.

Have fun losers smile

Lizzylou Sat 03-Aug-13 10:12:31

I have packed gym kit, not done things in Flemish or whatever that language was confused

Have a wonderful time Lizzy and I hope you are going somewhere where you can use your excellent Flemish skills.

SylviaDaisyPouncer Sat 03-Aug-13 14:17:41

I am oacjed too, ready to come home. Fly early hours of the morning.

Ready to do some serious hard Chiefing when I get back.

Have a lovely time lizzy

Found you! I've never been in a thread title before, I'm oddly proud grin although it's possible not going to be a globally successful dieting technique!

Very jel of all the holidays, have fabulous times. Eat, drink and be merry. (And that means actually food Lizzy not flipping juice!)

I have Randalled. Again. And I don't even feel guilty, I had too much fun! (One person even called me tiny! A huge exaggeration admittedly but I was still chuffed to mint balls)

The main thing for me is that I felt good. For the first time in I don't know how long I actually felt like I looked nice and wasn't paranoid about people looking at me. It was a lovely feeling.

That's the last of the hen nights now though, just one more wedding to go.

Have a great holiday Lizzy and thanks for the new, very aptly titled thread.

I bet you looked blooming lovely Randall and now I've read through the last bit of the previous thread I doff my cap to you.

70lbs is a feck of a lot of lbs to shift.

Inspired by an earlier thread ... that's seven six-foot aluminium step ladders or four 19inch flat screen tvs and five pineapples or 70 guinea pigs or one single lonesome Irish Setter or, perhaps my favourite, one elephant's penis and an adult Maltese dog. So congrats on the loss of your elephant's penis and dog grin

That BMI is very impressive too. I'm hovering over 22 so am vair impressed with your 21.7.

And reading about the work you've put in. You deserve it. You have worked hard. You've made sacrifices. Please do not tie yourself up in knots about it. I'm suffering from the .... "you look amazing, but you weren't big before" even though I've been obese and overweight for three years. I think I'm one of those people that people just think of being small ... perhaps my height or the fact I'm surrounded by five chaps who are all very tall. BTW You might find your friends decide to join you. Over the last three weeks a number of my RL friends have started with the exercise and the MFP saying they want to have a go too.

I'm with you Lizzy ... I look good for my age now but you know what I just want to be that little bit lighter!

Lego but it's a chance for new clothes ... and the AW 2013/2014 is full of lovely, special trends .... like grunge. It's back. Oh .... I wish I'd kept my clothes too.

buzzy do you think your parents would like to add another little one to their brood? I love the Highlands and they seem to have stocked up on all my favourite things. Your hols sounds just the ticket.

Bssh what you've done is amazing. I seem to have put on 3lbs and have no idea why and I haven't even thought about oacjing yet.

SDP LOLed at you updating from your holidays, welcome back to the wet SW. Hope you had a lovely time.

Interesting this thing about pictures. My DH records everything with a camera but I too have avoided his lens. I have found one photo of me at six months pregnant which kind of shows what I was because my bump didn't really ping until 8months. However, interestingly I'm still avoiding photos. I don't have any of me now except the occasional selfie on FB to ask whether my frock works or not! It seems I still run out of shot or hide behind one of the kids. I will see what I can do as we're off on hols in a couple of weeks but no-one be holding your breath!

Now Buzzy what this sense of balance that you speak of?

SylviaDaisyPouncer Sun 04-Aug-13 13:41:06

Found the nice new thread!

Back home but exhausted....not sure a 4am flight was a good idea. Meant leaving for the airport at midnight and no sleep for me and dh then the drive back from Gatwick. Can't wait for bedtime (of course the dc slept so are not wanting their beds yet). Was a little traumatic leaving the in laws as Bil and his family had arrived the day before so lots of tears from all the children when they had to say goodbye.

I'm pleased I logged all through my holiday, though I guess it looks a bit sad. I just knew if I didn't log I would take another week or so to get back into it. Will be having a lean day tomorrow and then get on the scales, I know I'm a few pounds up but will get back on track.

And thanks to you guys I know I can do it.....4 months and I hope to be at goal smile

BsshBossh Sun 04-Aug-13 20:17:24

Tea I've become so vain that I keep asking people to take my photo because I think I look great blush. My DD has so few photos of me because of years of camera avoidance that I feel I am making up for lost time (when I'm gone I want her to have photo memories of me!). Morbid, I know. Also I still can't believe I can fit into the same clothes that feature in my favourite trendy mags like Monocle, Gentlewoman, AnOther. I've always been into clothes but could never fit into the brands I liked. This weekend I fitted into Oliver Spencer, Folk and Humanoid - not every day names, but well respected and 100% my style. Finally I can wear my style and I kind of want to make up for lost time regarding dressing up and not shying away from my DH's camera.

Sorry for the ramble blush it's just my vain and show-off side has really come out since I've lost all this weight.

Hey SDP I'm going to be doing the same hence me LOLing at you doing it. I like a good log now. Food isn't quite so enjoyable if I can't consider exactly what I ate and how heavy it was, it makes me really think about whether I enjoy something now [saddo emoticon too]

Oh God I haven't thought about what happens when I'm deeeeeed <channels inner glaswegian> .... nope still not feeling the love of being in a camera.

Those are a whole bunch of names I've never heard of and I love, love, love clothes so you've given me a little task to tear me away from GoT. I'm a topshop type of girl myself. My little smug moment came last week when I picked up something in a size 10 and a size 8 on the sale rail and the shop assistant thought they might be too big. Unfortunately, rather like the time I was carded buying booze in M&S four years ago, I was not cool and may have hugged the poor teenage girl who was trying to help me put together an outfit.

BTW I feel the need to mention I ran 13.5 miles today. And I'm now clutching booze!

RandallPinkFloyd Sun 04-Aug-13 21:08:25

Well done logging through your holiday SPD, nothing sad about it, I'd probably do the same!

Bssh, bloody good for you, enjoy the feeling, you worked bloody hard for it. You deserve to show off a bit.

Topshop size 8 shock 13.5 miles shock <faints>

TheTigerDidntComeToTea Tue 06-Aug-13 13:11:14

Afternoon chiefs, so glad I found the new thread!
I was lost and wandering...lol!!

I cannot get back into the healthy eating thing since I came back from holiday (weeks ago sad) but I think I have finally kicked the 2lbs I put on then and I am back to my pre holiday weight. I have stuck with the gym though and last night dug out my yogalates DVD so its not all bad. I think being out off the school routine isn't helping!

I always find it funny when our kids (in Scotland) are getting ready to go back to school (next Wed) and all the rest of the UK are just going away!

DD starts nursery next week too so I'll have a couple of hours to myself on Wed and Thurs. I won't know what to do with myself grin

Tea 13.5 miles smile<impressed>

Randall you are definitely the chief of chiefs, obviously why the thread is named after you!grin And I'm glad you've lost the elephant's penis!!

Hope everyone's having a nice Tuesday, I'm off out to find something healthy to eat for lunch.

RandallPinkFloyd Tue 06-Aug-13 15:24:10

Of you've lost the 2lb then you're obviously doing something right, stop being so hard on yourself!

All that gyming certainly doesn't sound lazy to me. Onwards and downwards chief smile

TheTigerDidntComeToTea Tue 06-Aug-13 15:31:03

Yeah thanks Randall, but it's taken weeks! It just feels like I still have so far to go, just one of those days I think! How's your day?

Keeping up the gym is great though Tiger. I'm having the same school holiday problem. Fasting is a thing of the past in my house at the moment. I am noticing I am making better choices that previous holidays though. So not so much cake, not so much beer and noticing when I'm full so as you say not all bad.

Wow .... school grin

<starts dreaming about selling the house and moving to Scotland before next Wednesday>

Tell you what that's one huge knob. I've been telling everyone I meet that an elephants penis weighs 60lbs all week. People have started to avoid me.

RandallPinkFloyd Tue 06-Aug-13 17:53:00

I still haven't got a clue how I'm going to go about maintaining my knob-loss. I've altered my MFP goal to 'maintain' and had a bit of a google and all sources seem to agree that 1700 a day is about right. That seems an awful lot. All I can do is take it one week at a time I think. Then see how it goes and tweak it as I go.

I've had to do some fasting last week and this week as I Randalled last weekend for the hen night plus I'll be Randalling on and off this week for mine and DS's birthdays too, so it's all a bit of a muddle.

I'm determined that tomorrow's birthday weigh-in will still be at my goal weight grin

SylviaDaisyPouncer Wed 07-Aug-13 10:50:51

flowers HAPPY BIRTHDAY Randall flowers

Have a fab day!

Not a lot to report here. Back to work tomorrow so my first fast day for a while. Will be nice to get into a routine again and work days seem to be easier to fast on.

Next week and the one after I'm working full time so hoping to get some good Chiefing in. Then have a 1920's party plus our friends coming to stay before they move to Qatar. After that my social life returns to normal. Really need to set some little goals as I have been very lazy.

Tea 13.8 miles is totally fantastic smile
I am still talking about C25k but realistically it isn't going to happen until dd is at Pre School in Spetember. Then I will have 3 mornings each week to get on it. Please feel free to kick my ass if I still haven't started next month!

RandallPinkFloyd Wed 07-Aug-13 16:18:06

1.4lb off, happy birthday to me!

My goal was 140lb so I'm now sat at 138.2lb. If I can get to 135lb that would be ideal as it gives me a nice 5lb buffer in case of randalling and for fluctuations whilst I work out how to maintain. Tbh though, as long as I stay under 140 I'm more than pleased.

1920's party sounds fab Sylv! You'll be back on the horse in no time once you're back in work. No harm - no foul!

BsshBossh Wed 07-Aug-13 16:47:37

Happy birthday to you indeed Randall the Super Chief!

Tea that's an amazing distance to run, well done Super Woman!

dinkydoos Wed 07-Aug-13 19:59:39

Quick one from an overnight stop in Arras, France after a pile of steak frites ...., think these 18 days won't be v chiefly...

Anyway congrats Randall!!!! Skinny birthday girl!

Happy Skinny Birthday you marvellous Chief you from a train somewhere between Swindon and Chippenham. May there be champers, cider and cheese grin
