Dives in

Ok no more falling of diet for me tbh I feel like shit and constipation with cramps it's just not worth it even if the food I eaten this week tasted good . I not Di much fell of the wagon but dived in doing a triple somersault on way

YoucanringmySleighBells Fri 07-Dec-12 20:22:12

Yes - well I need christmas out of the way..have managed to be good today but my resolve is weakening. The only thing stopping me from pigging out is the thought if standing starkers having a tan shock

Hello to everyone on the new thread grin

Ooh new thread, welcome any newbies who want to join us, we're all very friendly. X

human despite feeling ill from crap food, I hope you had a good time at center parcs.

youcan and ccc hope your children are all better. youcan well done on the weightloss. 15 lbs is amazing!

icb it sounds like you had a good lunch with your mum (as good as can be given the circumstances).

Having a mixed week, had aimed to have lots of salad and fruit as I think my diet is getting less healthy and largely failed. Had 5 mini crunchies yesterday sad .today I was so busy I suddenly realised, at 3, that I had only had a coffee all day, so I turned it into a fast day and finished on 500 cals. Next few days will be hard as it's dd2s birthday so there will be cake and crisps in the house.

CheckpointCharlie Fri 07-Dec-12 22:31:28

I always wear pants !!! (when getting a tan, and other times too!)

CheckpointCharlie Fri 07-Dec-12 22:34:08

Well done johnny You saved the day after the crunches. I owe my dd a crunchie as the urge got too muchblush
Thanks for best wishes re dd2 she is still coughing but not as badly, she still looks hollow eyed but has eaten biscuits pretty much all day!

Hi tiggy!

Gah I had my first binge eat last night...all just got too much. Will be aiming to get back to no gain by monday eeek.

Went swimming tonight in case that helped...I can't really swim (been twice as an adult and the other time was last week) and my swimming costume is two sizes too big (not at all stealthy boast there). You are probably wondering what the problem with this would be...but there I am gagging on the water, half drowned with my hair all sticking up out of the goggle elastic and my boobs escaping from my costume when I realise the guy I just crashed into boss.


I thought it couldn't get any worse...but after a few more attempts I have almost remembered how to do breast stroke...and watching the boss gliding under the water I think I will give that a go...

So I duck down and push off....only to get my foot caught over the ledge and end up bouncing and heading back to the wall. I mean how is that even possible. In the end I decided a retreat to the changing rooms was the best course of action even though I really couldn't bear the thought of the boss seeing me in the costume. It never really occurred to me how little you are actually wearing when swimming before...

TheHumancatapult Sat 08-Dec-12 06:45:16

Oops ICb that bloody soda law awgain

Checkpoint glad dd is picking up there is a definte bug going round as she has passed it onto the orher little boy who was on holiday with us . Hopefully ds3 escapes it . Don't think we're be very popular if misses more school

Back on the diet today but know there be a gain on Monday but oh we'll

YoucanringmySleighBells Sat 08-Dec-12 07:11:17

ICB! Sounds like a Miranda sketch you poor woman...did your boss see your boobs? blush Everyone has a binge but you have learnt to get back o n that horse and it does very little damage then.

CCC- biscuits are feel good food!! I bet DD will pick up in no time.

Johnny - mmmcrunchies. I cannot blame you...they are delicious!!

Human - I wouldn't be surprised if you come out about the same or lighter- you have probably sped your metabolism up a bit I reckon. Good luck however it goes wink

YoucanringmySleighBells Sat 08-Dec-12 07:11:33

Oh and tiggy - how are you?? Good week?

tiggy114 Sat 08-Dec-12 08:55:17

Hi all. Yes i'm great. Been a bit quiet on here coz i'm posting on the 5:2 thread aswell. Plus i'm on smartphone toooo much so trying to cut back. But i've also got zumba2 for the wii this week. It's hard and tiring but great fun and i'm getting some excercise at last. My toddler loves it! She dances round my legs grin

YoucanringmySleighBells Sat 08-Dec-12 13:39:13

ah a double agent eh??? <<suspicious gaze>>

Glad you are enjoying Zumba - I love when I get chance to go grin

JohnnyDeppsfuturewife Sun 09-Dec-12 15:29:25

Hi icb I hope you've got over the trauma of swimming. I try to do it but I can't really do any stroke, just a kind of mix called'johnnystroke' which I'm sure isn't very efficient and it's embarrassing because I am the slowest person in the pool so I get in everyone's way. I can do it for about 45 mins so I do have stamina. I have been looking up adult swimming lessons so I can be a bit less clumsy in the water.

tiggy how are you finding 5:2? when I was too busy to eat on Friday I found it really easy to go lower than 500 cals. I thought I'd never do fasting but I find I don't really get very hungry these days and when I do I don't mind so much. The reason I over eat is just that the food is in front of me. Must read threads and info on fasting.

JohnnyDeppsfuturewife Sun 09-Dec-12 15:32:06

Ooh, are you enjoying zumba 2? Could ask for that as Xmas present when I have learnt how to turn the wii on! (tried last week to play wii fit for the first time in about 3 years and couldn't remember how to do it!)

tiggy114 Sun 09-Dec-12 20:41:14

Hi johnny. I love 5:2 but not convinced i'm gonna loose any weight. It seems too east tbh. I havn't list any yet but have found my appetite is much decreased. Yeah the fast days are easy really. And i feel really healthy and detoxed after. I would first off recommend the wii active personal trainer. It is awesome and quite old so should be cheapish. It's great. You do boxing, running, lunges, and many other things pluss it's really fun. I like zumba but just got it as a change from wii active to stop me getting bored. I don't feel like i've done as much of a work out. Plus it's hard to work out the steps! Or maybe i'm just crap grin

CheckpointCharlie Sun 09-Dec-12 21:13:11

Hi all, had the fabbiest weekend. Went to my friend's house in London with all my best best friends from boarding school and we had a curry and watched telly and chatted and it was totally amazing!
And NO KIDS! grin I also discovered that I can do a brilliant impression of Christopher Maloney and have video evidence.... blush

Can you tell I had a good time. Unfortunately I did eat a bit too much, ignored the Chocs and had tandori chicken but also a bacon roll.....

ich that is SO SO funny and blush that made me laugh a lot.

Happy weigh in pals, am feeling a bit trepidationy....

JohnnyDeppsfuturewife Sun 09-Dec-12 21:33:48

Let us know how it goes tiggy I hope it works soon. I read some of the 5:2 threads and there are some amazing stories there. I think I might give it a go in January, as I don't want dd1 to see me eating nothing during the school holidays. Presumably if you go back to a different diet you'll find it easier to not snack?

Think I already have the wii personal trainer, will have a look. I went through a phase between dd1 and dd2 when I was exercising on the wii nearly every day and I did feel a lot fitter, i do want to start again. Must buy a new sports bra as sadly I think boobs have shrunk a little.

TheHumancatapult Mon 10-Dec-12 06:15:46

Ok weighed in and I am a 1lb up . But considering I fell of wagon most the week it's not as bad as I thought it be and in grand s ale of things still a whole lot lighter than 6 months ago .but back on diet from Saturday so hopefully not going to stick around

What I did find is my appetite has shrunk a lot though and yes I did still feel slightly conscious of my weight as sitting means can't hide it but was also aware was no longer biggest in pool of in room and after hand walking all 81 frigging stairs on the new slide I was stuck as two foot wall get on the raft but lifeguard helped and was aware that 6 months ago no way would he been able or even offered


Sounds like a well deserved weekend off


Imwondering if 5/2 will work matienance wise when hit goal weight not for everyone but I eat under 500 every day

Hope all the dx are feeling better

YoucanringmySleighBells Mon 10-Dec-12 06:48:13

Morning - everyone is sounding very happy and festive - lovely grin

Well done Human - brilliant damage limitation. I have not weighed as I weighed friday...I will weigh this friday and post and then after Christmas I will get back onto the monday weigh in's after the first detox week...dreading that first weigh in after my dh has been home for two weeks...eek!!

Good luck everyone!! Looking good <<wolf whistles>>

TheHumancatapult Mon 10-Dec-12 07:16:00


Glad your DH be home soon how long now ? and you may find you can not eat as much

I would like to loose 8lb by the new year which will take me below 13 stone also more so will mean hitting 100lb loss

tiggy114 Mon 10-Dec-12 08:49:40

Hi human. I'm kinda thinking i'll cut down to one fast day a week when i've reached my weight goal as i enjoy it and it has health benefits. I think my appitite has decreased in general since doing this way of eating. I think i'm used to eating less. Will weigh in tonight at the library so we'll see if it's working.

JohnnyDeppsfuturewife Mon 10-Dec-12 10:22:18

Hello everyone. Well I almost lost 1lb (0.9 lb) so I am just over 12 st 2. The 11s are in sight and my Xmas target is to be in the 11s. Psychologically it's a big deal as 11 st seems 'normal'.

I am really struggling to eat healthily. I find that I will eat a cake or biscuits or sweets and then go without a meal. Still managing to do fairly low cals which is why I'm losing weight but I've always been a savoury girl so I am angry with my body for suddenly wanting sugar. On the other hand i am pleased that I suddenly have enough willpower to drop a meal as a consequence of me being naughty.

Thread seems quite upbeat at the moment, I'm really glad. tiggy youcan everyone else good luck with weigh ins. human wow, 8lbsloss, I really think you'll do it. smile
