Welcome mollycuddles, you could have joined the old thread
I've hit my mid monthly plateau but otherwise still ok. I bought a pair of size 10 jeans from eBay that arrived today and they fit!! I have now lost almost 30Kg and gone from a very tight 16 to a 10 (at least one pair anyway!) in 7 months, guess I need to decide how much more I want to lose.
Welcome mollycuddles <waves> Feel fee to add me on MFP (same name as here).
Have eaten virtually all my cals today, and am starving. DH is making popcorn, and has just poured a glass of my favourite wine. Will power dwindling.... My theory is going over a little bit now and again is no bad thing. Feeling deprived is what makes me want to stop dieting, and that would be worse than the occasional overindulgence.
As long as I do log everything I feel in control even if I go over. It motivates me do do some exercise to get back on track.. And the odd day going over won't hurt if you keep an eye on the weekly average
Marking my place. Have been lax last couple of days. Going back to work after maternity leave tomorrow feel physically sick about it and Ds was such a cuddly, giggly bundle of joy today I can't bear it
Molly, feel free to add me, I am petd on mfp. I have been doing this for 60 odd days (mfp keeps track) and have so far lost 23lbs The constant logging really does work. It also makes me think about what I eat. What helps me most is logging my evening meal before I eat it. Therefore if something jumps out as being incredibly calorific (such as the chorizo sausage in tonight's pasta dish) I can substitute it for something less fattening.
Have sligtly overdone the dog walking today and now have sore legs. Totm too so have killer headache and sugar craving. May just take a painkiller and go to bed. Ofsted are in at school so tomorrow will be a heavy day...
Oh thinkfast. Yuck. My dd2 is just over 2 and I bawled on my first few days back at work. But it got better and I still get loads of cuddles. Good luck behindlocknumber9 with ofsted. 23 lbs in 2 months is brilliant. I've lost 15 in that time and am delighted.
Marking place! Feel free to add me - am 'clairetwoboys' on MFP (a name I think is really rubbish but I used it when I started my account and had no idea I could link it up to MN! - I need to find out how to change it to match my MN name) Very jealous of you, Cinnamon! I can't wait to buy clothes for my new slim shape. Do you know yet how much further you want to go or are you planning to maintain at where you are now? Carpe - as for snacks, I have yogurts or rice cakes mainly - I have to be really, really disciplined and not have any sugar, as once I start I find it difficult to stop!
Is there any way to change your name on MFP? I would happily add MNers (the only friend I have ATM is DP who is doing this with me) but my MFP name is my RL name. Much as I think you're all lovely, I don't want to give that out. If I could change my username that would be great.
Mackerel - go to 'settings' and you will get a menu of options - one of which is 'change user name' - you are only allowed to change it once. I am going to stay as clairetwoboys for now as am thinking of changing my MN nickname too... (changeable me!)
How was work thinkfast, I went back full time when ds1 was 6 months and it was horrible hence the reason I'm now a childminder . Although he wasn't a happy baby at all!!
CarpeJugulum, breadsticks are quite good, I'm eating lots of frut at the moment as blueberries, strawberries etc are cheap and tasty at the moment! I tend to eat bad things as snacks but just small amount, so I'll share a bag of crisps with ds1 or have one biscuit or one of the thin dairy milk bars. Pears are good too, check out the old thread for lots of ice cream low calorie snack suggestions
Glad my lack of weightloss is cheering you up MonsterBookOfTysons . I have put on 400g this morning after three days of sts, oh well I try not to let it bug me. Still totally undecided on a goal weight!
