Hear me out smile

I start WW tomorrow, I want to lose 2 stone to take me to 9 and a half stone as I still have baby weight (DD2 is one)

WIBU to say goodbye to some old favourites, including chinese ... ?

Having a Chinese is never BU - enjoy it!

candyflossisevil Wed 25-Jul-12 20:42:31

Do it and enjoy!

Not at all, in fact you should stuff your face as much as you can before the meeting! Enjoy!

I have just lost a similar amount after DC2, taking me to your target weight, and I feel so much better now! Good luck!

I would have Chicken Curry (no veg) Fried Rice & Chips! Every time smile

Go for it

Have a biiig chinese - get it out of your system so to speak. Also - meeting night doesn't count, so give yourself 1 night off a week where you can have what you like (and make it meeting night as you have just been weighed)

Helps you stick to it IMO

Go for it. Enjoy.

Yummm go for it.

Ps. some takeaways / restaurants that do takeaways serve healthier Chinese food than others..
The last Chinese restaurant i went to didn't use MSG; used lots of fresh veg in each dish; served tasty lightly boiled veg; all stir fries contained minimal oil; & the crispy duck was tender meat with only a bit of 'crispy skin' & barely any fat.
It was all tasty & i actually left there feeling like i'd eaten a healthy meal; i reckon a dieter could easily have a decent meal there! So worth shopping around if possible. smile

Why are you saying goodbye to any kind of food?

As soon as you eventually say 'hello' to it again, you'll be like the majority of WW clients and need to go again and again....

Just have a little bit, now and again as part of a healthy diet with plenty exercise.

I am currently waiting for dh to arrive with a curry. He's working late tonight so said he'd pick one up. He rang to say he was then leaving just after nine. He should be here any minute.

I bloody hope so, I am starving.

Ah! Thought you meant Chinese person. Was about to ask you where you were going to keep him. I won't now.

I'm with Worra.
I didn't give up anything, I just eat less of it if it's high calorie and eat it less often. I still eat pizza a couple times a month and Chips are something I'll never give up, but those I've had twice this month too.
I've found eating healthier I'm losing a taste for some of the junk I used to like. Yesterday I had one bite of a hot dog in Costco and now don't ever want one of those again, it was so salty!

No, don't have a Chinese.

Except for the curry, all the 'gravy' tastes the same - bloody minging; either very sugary or soy saucery <boak>

Have something with some decent flavour like a dhansak (nom grin nom)

I gather you mean a 'Chinese takeaway', not a 'Chinese' ...

MrsJohnMurphy Thu 26-Jul-12 00:25:14

Tbh Blueshoes I don't think anyone was in doubt about what she meant, hope you enjoyed it anyway.

WorraLiberty Thu 26-Jul-12 00:30:17

Fucking hell, can people be any more pedantic?

When you do WWatchers you find out what are the lowest point choices in any takeaway or restaurant you could mention!
This way you still have a social life and stay on plan.
Chinese takeaway - you order chicken chow mein
Indian - you order tandoori of any type
Italian - you order fish or pasta arrabiata
and so on!!!!

Both dc sleep in my bed room. If a burglar makes it upstairs I will bash him with a base ball bat and not stop until I'm reasonably sure he is dead. I will not stop while he is living to make a phone call to the police and hope he doesn't harm my kids. Sorry. Luckily the law is on my side where I live, not as luckily though the law allows for people to own and carry guns here which means I better be quick with my bat.

VegansTasteBetter Thu 26-Jul-12 01:52:36

How the feck did that happen.

blueshoes Thu 26-Jul-12 07:37:26

It is not pedantic.

It is ignorant, to put it mildly, to use the word "Chinese" interchangeably with "Chinese takeaway" as if that is all "Chinese" can be associated with.

catgirl1976 Thu 26-Jul-12 07:47:02

No. It's really pedantic.


imnotmymum Thu 26-Jul-12 07:51:00

I say chinese, or indian or mexican ... my ignorance must be off the chart !!

ken0eddie0kennedy Thu 26-Jul-12 08:00:41

Pedantic. Give it a rest will ya !

BlackholesAndRevelations Thu 26-Jul-12 08:06:34

Chinese is a commonly accepted abbreviation of Chinese takeaway, and everyone knows it. If op wanted a Chinese man, presumably she'd have said so. Or a Chinese dress, or ornament, or whatever the fuck else could be Chinese. So, blueshoes, sto being such an irritating pedant, or just don't bother posting.

BlackholesAndRevelations Thu 26-Jul-12 08:07:47

Ps: OP- did you have one?! wink
