old thread here

Support thread for those of us trying to log our food and exercise on myfitnesspal

Thought I'd be brave and start the new thread off!

mollycuddles Tue 12-Jun-12 21:15:23

I've been waiting for this. I'm using mfp - rjmcken1972 and want some nice MN friends but the old thread was so long it made my head hurt. Can I join the shiny new one?

Thanks jchocchip!

Welcome mollycuddles, you could have joined the old thread smile

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.

jchocchip Tue 12-Jun-12 21:34:40

course you can! fell free to add me, same name as on here smile

jchocchip Tue 12-Jun-12 21:37:48

(oops delayed post )

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 smile

Hello smile marking my place - having a better week this week - after very indulgent/no exercise half term smile Swimming tomorrow - good job as my friend's bday too and have got huge cake for her smile

thinkfast Tue 12-Jun-12 21:59:29

Marking my place. Have been lax last couple of days. Going back to work after maternity leave tomorrow sad feel physically sick about it and Ds was such a cuddly, giggly bundle of joy today I can't bear it

Oooh, shiny new thread smile

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 smile
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...

Night all smile

Awww, thinkfast, hope tomorrow goes well x

mollycuddles Tue 12-Jun-12 22:24:03

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.

aliciaflorrick Tue 12-Jun-12 22:31:36

Marking my spot. Feel free to add me on Mfp I'm nw2305.

laurenamium Tue 12-Jun-12 22:45:34

Marking my spot! It's my totm too so I'm all bloaty and craving sugar and chocolate, blah!

CarpeJugulum Wed 13-Jun-12 10:28:18

Marking spot too!

I'm on the app as CarpeJugulum (as on here!) so if anyone wants to add me, feel free!

Quick question for everyone! What do you eat as snacks? I'm getting very bored of apples!

Marking place.
Newbies feel free to add me, same name as on here smile

CarpeJugulum Wed 13-Jun-12 12:09:31

Crap. Just added lunch, and added proposed dinner - and I'm under my limit. smile but I'm heading out to softplay with DS and they do a lovely cupcake, which I'd like to eat - but it will take me over! sad

Hmm... wonder how many calories playing in a soft play would burn?

<wanders off to google>

Just marking my place.

Cinnamon that's fantastic, sounds like you have lost about what I intend to lose - I dream of the day I get to wear size 10 jeans!

Nothing to report here really, still on a plateau on the cusp of my first stone and trying everything to shift that stubborn bloody pound.

laurenamium Wed 13-Jun-12 13:08:40

carpe I have a multi pack of pack lunched size boxes of raisins, and also the much less healthy huge pack of double dips too. blush I'm so unhealthy!

harrietlichman Wed 13-Jun-12 13:34:51

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.

harrietlichman Wed 13-Jun-12 14:33:12

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!)

Just read back, cinnamon you always make me feel better, also on a mid month plateau!
I have put a couple of lbs on but always do mid month so waiting and seeing.

Niceupthedance Wed 13-Jun-12 17:46:51

Hello I am still hanging on in there on mfp although my results have not been good. In a month of logging I put on two pounds and then lost it again - go me!

Am making more of an effort this week and have also signed up for Allen carr's weight loss clinic in July. I gave up smoking after a session there, so hoping they can do the same with sugar!

Feel free to add me although I'm not inspiring like others here. I'm SWpanda.

So what did you do OneTwoOrThree?

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 smile. 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 smile

Glad my lack of weightloss is cheering you up MonsterBookOfTysons wink. 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!
