I knew I had put on wieght. But bloody hell I have reached 15 stone and now really need to loose it asap. I have signed up to mfp and intend to stick to that and exercise at least three times a week. Anyone want to join me in a monday wiegh in and motivation thread.
I find I am a picker and wil binge on crap. I need to get serious and healthy before I get any older and become nable to join in stuff with my kids.

Yep I am starting back today and am not looking forward to my weigh in later!! But it has to be done I just weigh too much and like you want to be able to do more with my ds! Will report back in a little bit.

Hi Golden. Very glad to have some company smile

Morning !!

I will join you - but for various reasons will be weighing in on a Wednesday.

Started two weeks ago - first week lost nothing - last week lost 5 pounds. Am hoping for another loss this week.
Have upped my exercise - walk mist days and swimming/ aqua aerobics twice a week.
Trying to cut out carbs.

I am thinking along the same lines lavender but since we moved house last month I cannot for the life of me find our scales anywhere. I did weigh about < whispers > 16 stone shock but my last weigh in was two months ago now.

I am starting the food cut back and exercise thing anyway and I need to hunt out the scales today.

Hi lavenderbongo, would love to join the weigh in with you. I am exactly the same where i binge on crap, if i tell myself i will just have the one biccie i end up eating loads of stuff and then feel rubish. Im going back to WW tonight, i weigh about 16stone and i am 40 in around 18/12 so i really need to shift this weight........

Goldensunnydays81 Mon 03-Sep-12 07:22:23

blush 18 stone 3lb blush I'm the heaviest here and the heaviest I have ever been!!
Butter I'm the same if I have one I just can't stop but if I don't have them at all I find it easier, I gave up diet coke 8 months ago and haven't had one since so I think that is the way to go I am rubbish having things in moderation!! blush
Well hopefully we will all have a great weight loss week!!

lavenderbongo Mon 03-Sep-12 08:52:42

Hi everyone. Thanks all for joining me. Having others to share this with would be great. Typinginsecret - please tell me how you managed 5lbs in one week thats awesome! Whyme, I have been avoiding my scales for the last few months but forced myself ne them today - hence the shock horror today!
Buttercrumb I think WW is great and i have lost a lot of wieght in the past with them but I cant afford to join them this time so will be usng mfp instead.
Golden I think giving up diet coke is a great start. There is an enourmous amount of crap in coke. I have a weakness for it myself so will be giving it up too.

Typinginsecret Mon 03-Sep-12 09:04:08

Lavender,

Iam not eating carbs , and either walking twice a day or walking and swimming . The first week I didn't lose an ounce and was very disheartened. I think for some reason I think it came off in all one week!

Golden, Iam trying to give up diet coke - I split up with my husband mast year , and diet coke was my drug of choice! Now down to drinking maybe once a week as a treat.

Butercrumb - I have done we in past and would still apply some of it to my healthy eating plan now.

GalaxyDefender Mon 03-Sep-12 09:09:42

Ooh, can I join in too? Haven't actually weighed myself in about a month, but the last time I did I was just under 14 stone. It's a horrible plateau for me, was 15 stone but lost one in about a month only to then be stuck forever ... planning to make a fresh start this week!

Agree with things in moderation being hard - I can't buy one of those tubs of ice-cream, I eat it all! And I'm notorious for scoffing entire tubs of pringles in one go without realising it grin So for me it's pretty much cold turkey or nothing, at least for a few months.

Luckily for me, my DS has decided that our daily walks now need to be runs; he stops at the top of the road, does a little running on the spot thing then zooms off, leaving me having to run to keep up! Maybe he knows I need to lose weight ...

I'll weigh myself later and check back in.

Hello, can I join please? I have started low carb today. Think that's the way to go for me as calorie counting lasts about 4 days and then I eat something stupid like kfc and give up!
I am severly lacking in will power grin
You ladies sound similar with the snacking and binge eating. I find if I am bored I just constantly graze on crap to give me something to do.
I am going to join the gym this week, which I'm a bit nervous about, as I have never set foot in one before. I'm a bit worried about making a twat of myself! Any tips would be great, to avoid blush
How is everyone doing so far today? What have you got planned for dinner tonight?

Goldensunnydays81 Mon 03-Sep-12 12:25:10

Convert - you sound a bit like me with the gym I can't face it yet but I have started Zumba classes with a friend and it is great I was so so nervous the first time I went and nearly pulled out but once i got there I was too busy trying to concentrate on what to do and I think everyone else was too so no one really noticed what everyone else was doing!! Am sure the gym will be the same too goodluck!!
For dinner tonight I am going to have some salmon veg and a couple of new potatoes!!
How about you?

Goldensunnydays81 Mon 03-Sep-12 12:27:21

Typing- it is so addictive isn't it, I'm just too scared to have one in case I want to keep drinking it and it would feel like I have undone all the good work!! Am also on week 3 of no chocolate bars just got to stop the biscuits blush

Convert Mon 03-Sep-12 12:49:16

Thanks Golden, I'm planning on putting my ipod on full blast and ignoring what's going on around me!
Think I'm going for pork loin steaks cooked in garlic oil with mushrooms. I'm actually quite enjoying this low carb stuff!

Typinginsecret Mon 03-Sep-12 13:04:29

Now need your support to stop me cramming my face - exh has a new, younger, lovely girlfriend and for some reason feel sick to my stomach !

Iam so over weight - and I feel everyone will be comparing us!!

Convert Mon 03-Sep-12 14:13:05

What a bastard Typing (he might not be but it will make you feel better to think that!)
Are you cutting out all carbs or just pasta bread etc? Well done with losing 5lbs, thats brilliant grin

GalaxyDefender Mon 03-Sep-12 16:17:44

Aw Typing =( If anyone compares you to his new girlfriend then that's their problem tbh - you're clearly better off, as in my experience men who immediately go for a younger woman given half a chance tend to be bastards anyway.

Cutting out all carbs is soooooo hard. Particularly when your favourite foods include roast potatoes and toast. I tried it and couldn't hack it, now just eating less of it rather than cut out entirely.

Just weighed myself for the first time in 27 days - lost 6lbs! Dead chuffed, wasn't even really doing anything special apart from eating less. So my Monday weigh-in: 13 stone 6lbs.
Nearly not obese anymore! grin

lavenderbongo Mon 03-Sep-12 19:59:31

Well done Galaxy, 6 lbs is great. Just started my day with toast and marmite. This should be the only carbs I eat all day. Then going to work and doing a big food shop and going to buy lts of healthy stuff. Also going to fit in a zumba session on the x box.
Hopefully this will be the start of a new lifestyle!

Convert Mon 03-Sep-12 21:48:11

Well done for 6lbs! That's brilliant.
First day done and am under the carb limit, also have loads more energy and feeling good! Bring on day two grin

Goldensunnydays81 Mon 03-Sep-12 21:49:15

typing oh no how did you get on today? like galaxy says, if anyone compares you then that is their problem!!!
well yay i made it throught the first day and i have just started my period so quite good considering!! but im hungry sad oh well just got to think of the pounds that will be going!!
hope everyone else is having a good day

fivegomadindorset Mon 03-Sep-12 21:52:41

May I join too? Larger lady here, just tipped the scales at 18st 1lb this morning. Doing WW, slow and steady.

Groovee Mon 03-Sep-12 21:52:42

I had a similar shock 6 weeks ago. I've lost 12lb in that time. Being motivated has really helped.

bugsylugs Mon 03-Sep-12 23:04:19

Just got on the scales well wii fit bmi back upto just over 29 hols this weekend so not sure how good I will be.

lavenderbongo Tue 04-Sep-12 02:58:26

Hallo all! Having a good day today. Done lots of healthy shopping and just done 25 minutes of zumba. Five - I found WW brilliant but been so slack the last few years I have put it all back on. Groovie, 12lbs in six week is great, thats what I hope to achieve. Just going to walk to pick the kids up from school. It only a ten minute walk but every lttle bit helps smile
