Morning all!

Come and confess all

I suspect a lot of us are postponing our final weigh in till a bit later in the week, given the cheating falling off the wagon that's been going on!

Hope everyone has a good last week. Still time to drop a couple of pounds!

MsRinky Thu 06-Dec-12 07:56:30

Well I braved the scales this morning and I have managed to wipe out the effects of the weekend, so am back to where I was last Monday. I'm 40 a couple of weeks into January, and I really want to have hit 50lbs off by then: four pounds to go.

captainmummy Thu 06-Dec-12 08:22:12

Well done Mrs R - 50lb is a huge amount! It's my birthday in January too (nowhere near 40 anymore tho)

Viper - shock at 'gunt'! smile Our office xmas party has been called off - lack of interest. It's a busy time I know for most people, but you'd think a wednesday night most people could make. Esp as it's a free dinner and dance! We might be having it in January now, <hope it's near my birthday!>

Captain - miserable sods.

Just the one interview today now, phew, other one postponed.

caramelwaffle Thu 06-Dec-12 11:07:35

Good luck.

caramelwaffle Thu 06-Dec-12 13:47:36


Look what arrived in the post for me. All for me, me, me. It's going in my Christmas stocking.

Once we are in Bootcamp Light what alcoholic drinks are you allowed?

Presumably brandy, rum (not sure if it makes a difference whether it is clear rum or dark rum though?), whiskey, vodka, gin are zero carbs?

nappyaddict Thu 06-Dec-12 15:53:23

Also how come Feta cheese is 1.5g carbs where as generally cheese is 0g carbs?

ilovemyteddy Thu 06-Dec-12 16:50:36

Well done MsRinky I've got a January birthday too - definitely want to be at my target weight by then - still 10lbs to go, and nothing off this week yet, but I've had a shite week as our house was broken into on Monday. Lots of personal items gone sad

So I've not been eating properly and have hit the chocolate.

PorkyScratching Thu 06-Dec-12 16:56:17

I thought all cheese had a carb value?

PorkyScratching Thu 06-Dec-12 16:56:48

so sorry ilove sad what a horrible thing to happen sad

MrsHerculePoirot Thu 06-Dec-12 17:49:47

Ilove that is horrible. Bg hugs.

I am BACK IN THE GAME as of today. I have buried my head in the sand and it has been carb central here over the last six days. Somehow I have ended up only about 3 lbs up,in total but I have felt miserable. I have been brilliant today and feel tons better already.

Doshusallie Thu 06-Dec-12 18:25:34

Sorry to hear that ilove. What a horrible thing to happen. sad

BIWIshYouAMerryChristmas Thu 06-Dec-12 19:44:43

MsRinky - wow you have done brilliantly! And so nearly there grin

ilovemyteddy - I'm so sorry to hear that sad We were burgled in February and it's a horrible feeling, never mind the things that you lose. I lost many pieces of jewellery that my mum left me. Not all of it was especially valuable, but they were irreplaceable and full of sentimental value.

Welcome back, MrsHP!

caramelwaffle Thu 06-Dec-12 19:52:47

Sorry to hear that ilove sad

Welcome back MrsHP

WineGless Thu 06-Dec-12 20:31:09

Welcome back MRS Hp - loving your work today well done

Dosh- how was interview?

Caramel- you coming to join us on twitter then?

Ilovemyteddy- big hugs, you know what I do and if I could catch the bastards and bring them to you so they could see the impact it has I would.
We are doing loads of work around this to bring offenders face to face with victims to try and change offending habits. Doesn't always work but the success stories are amazing and really impactive.

Good day low carb wise although hitting the wine tonight. Off tomorrow and its been a hell of a week with staff issues.

Off to finish some Xmas shopping online whilst DH out

Doshusallie Thu 06-Dec-12 20:50:16

Mrs HP - ure twitter book on amazon - if you look at what else viewers of your book looked at it's Ketostix!!! grin

Interview was good thanks wine- waiting on feedback from it and yesterday's.

WineGless Thu 06-Dec-12 20:53:47

It's mme Lindors book but I think she has abandoned us! Love the fact of the link to ketosix though! Fingers crossed for the interview results - did you get a vibe which job you liked best?

MrsHerculePoirot Thu 06-Dec-12 20:59:30

Not my book, it is MmeLindor's!

BIWI - random question, do you cycle?

MrsHerculePoirot Thu 06-Dec-12 21:00:08

dosh interviews sound positive, that's good!

BIWIshYouAMerryChristmas Thu 06-Dec-12 21:12:07

MrsHP - only at the gym, when I'm on the bike for about 10 minutes! I am thinking, though, that I ought to get myself a bike. But why do you ask?!

MrsHerculePoirot Thu 06-Dec-12 22:28:12

As I drove from Wimbledon to the DL I saw someone cycling and they turned down Dorset road towards Merton Park and they looked slightly like you (from twitter pic!) and I thought, right I AM doing this again properly!

I haven't had a single naughty bite today.
B - eggs, bacon and mushroom
D - lamb steaks, leeks and cauliflower
S - pork scratchings, anchovies


vnmum Thu 06-Dec-12 22:29:22

captain you have the area right but I am not from here originally. I moved here due to DH's posting but we are seriously thinking of settling here.

I have fallen off the wagon these past few weeks in amazing style. already 4lb up from Monday. I won't mention what I've eaten but DH has been comfort eating and for some unknown reason I have joined in. it is DD's birthday this weekend and I did think 'what's the point in getting on the wagon before the weekend' but now I am determined to jump back on and stop letting DH drag me down.

DH has just been diagnosed with depression. I knew he was heading that way for a month or so and I have been trying to hold everything together, trying to prevent the DC from noticing and also concentrating at work. at least now it has been diagnosed, treatment is starting and abit of pressure is off me. I can start to concentrate on myself again.
I feel so sluggish and flabby since falling off the wagon. let's hope my body is tricked into thinking it's the very first week again.

Piffle Thu 06-Dec-12 23:04:02

Sloping in ashamed as due to PMT and DD being seriously ill and now me being I'll I've been drowning my sorrows in Maltesers..,
I will try harder :-/

ViperInTheManger Thu 06-Dec-12 23:37:16

I went to my meal out tonight which was fun in a rather geeky way (the 6 of us who turned up are all in the same profession so it was a bit of a busman's holiday but fun anyway) I was not good as I ate pudding and drank wine but I probably made better choices than I would have done before and left the potatoes. Although I could have been a lot better I actually feel quite positive that I didn't just totally cave in.

Also managed to find a large shirt, straight leg jeans and boots which didn't look too bad. Still have no idea what to wear tomorrow but hey ho.

Am back with my trainer tomorrow for the first time since my knee injury so could be an interesting day.

janglebells2013 Fri 07-Dec-12 07:17:46

vnmum really sorry to hear of dh's depression. so tough for you too.. thinking of you.

i'll join those who've slipped up and confess i had way too much dark choc last night, and didn't sleep well as a result would have dealt with it easier earlier in the day.
