Ooooooohhhh, that's exciting, and a bit of an honour, I feel like the Leader!

YoucanringmySleighBells Fri 21-Dec-12 07:34:11

Very nice advice there johnny thanks

You have done brilliantly :-)

Well I stood nakedly but wore my own pants for the tan. I was completely leather brown and wrinkly looking last night ergh. This morning i did rub a bit more than I should have but I was a little freaked out at how brown I was. I am fairly happy with the result now - even when I take my clothes off I have a pair of white pants on grin

Tres chic....non?

<wolf whistle> sexy lady!!!!

JohnnyDeppsfuturewife Fri 21-Dec-12 21:35:03

I would be too embarrassed to have someone give me a fake tan, I did it once in one of those booths where it just squirts it at you so no one saw.

youcan is it tomorrow dh comes home? How exciting. Puts it in perspective how long we've been chatting to each other. Feels like ages since he went away. We've done well to stick at this.

Had some friends over and they left me with with profiteroles and mince pies. I have been so disciplined that I haven't eaten a single mince pie this year. Slightly worried if eat one it'll lead to them all more.

TheHumancatapult Sat 22-Dec-12 06:42:22

You can bet it looks lovely

When dh home ?

Johnny how the mince pie advoidibg going impressed with strong will

YoucanringmySleighBells Sat 22-Dec-12 07:06:48

Thanks everyone! johnny You are doing so well - but I think you should put yourself to thte test and have a mince pie if you really want one. It is about living a normal life! Skinny people have mince pies too at this time of year.

Husband is due home any time he can get aflight - fingers crossed it's before christmas...He has been gone about 3 months now and we are still going string. smile

Human - how are you?

CheckpointCharlie Sat 22-Dec-12 20:19:35

Hi all! Am just about holding on to the weight loss I have already achieved and do believe that I have actually started to change my habits, have been given lots of Chocs and cakes but haven't eaten them yet!

Good luck for Christmas everyone, and let's not stress too much, we can all star again with a vengeance afterwards, but also let's not use Christmas as an excuse to slip back into old habits.

We are all significantly lighter and to use youcan's initial wisdom, we will never be that heavy again. So far so true.

Happy Christmas lovely pals!

YoucanringmySleighBells Sat 22-Dec-12 20:39:39

Bloody hell CCC, even I don't remember most of the stuff I say !! grin

Too true. 2013 is going to be the year we all achieve our ideal weights. But for now, eat, drink and be merry. We have got the grip we so desperately needed. Well done everyone !

JohnnyDeppsfuturewife Sat 22-Dec-12 21:20:22

I resisted the mince pies because I realised that I didn't like the taste enough to get fat over! That said I ate 5 profiteroles for breakfast because I do like the taste of them (while dh and dds were eating weetabix and toast I was scoffing profiteroles from the packet in the fridge! The shame!) blush

I then had a lovely lunch at a relatives with a couple of glasses of wine. I am allowing myself four naughty days over the period as that's when we're visiting people or having them over and today was one of them. But actually it wasn't that bad.

Hope your hubby gets a flight youcan, you and the kids must be very excited.

Well done ccc for not eating everything in sight. Tomorrow is the big test for me, my food delivery comes and I'll have a house with crisps and nibbles.

Still got about 10 profiteroles downstairs, how wrong is it to have them for breakie again? (they're only 250 calories for 5 which is half of tiggy's breakfast cereal so a relatively 'healthy' option!) grin

TheHumancatapult Sat 22-Dec-12 23:20:04

I'm doing ok still sticking with it and planning my sale tatic for boxing day basically I'm going to head towards what j want and let everyone get our my way

YoucanringmySleighBells Sun 23-Dec-12 07:18:42

TheHumancatapult Sun 23-Dec-12 17:04:07

Ooo is he home yet youcan

He did not see me and going Di fast he hit me before noticing me and gone up and over my foot and yup it's broken

JohnnyDeppsfuturewife Sun 23-Dec-12 18:01:21

Omg! Human! That's awful, you must be in agony! Did you report the driver for dangerous driving? How could someone not see you in your chair? What an idiot! I am so angry for you.

Youcan, is dh back yet? I have a feeling you may be too busy blush to think of your old mumsnet pals so if I don't 'see' you again I hope you have a wonderful Xmas. X

CheckpointCharlie Sun 23-Dec-12 21:50:28

human sad nightmare, how awful, what did the idiot who ran you over say???

youcan's DH is home!!!!!!!! There is a lovely thread about it going on in chat, I think he got in about four.

Am still holding on, went to a friends today for Christmas party and all there was was cheese, ham, bread and crisps. I had two small bits of bread and ham with a sliver of cheese. DH had four and now feels sick. I feel smug!!!!!

Again, human so upset for you, bit of a salacious question but can you sue them? Do you have to watch out for swelling?

TheHumancatapult Mon 24-Dec-12 06:21:05

Checkpoint well done on avoidance


Did you advoid the profiteroles ?

Foot wise if there is ever a silver lining it's the fact that I can't feel my foot is one . Yes police were called and surreal conversation over if broke it would hurt . Not when have no feeling anyway IB it but Dr took one look and said X-ray

Yup have airboat as I can't feel a plaster cast could rub and would never know

And that is fab news for youcan enjoy xxLol never has one DH been waited for to get home by so many ladies

TheHumancatapult Mon 24-Dec-12 08:42:59

5lb of grin am hoping this will help me stay reasonable good over the next few days ( well only reasonable as it is Xmas . But I can see the 11 in my sight I will do this .

We can all do it even if hiccup over Xmas .

And on that note can I wish all you lovey fab ladies a happy Christmass the support on here is fantastic

JohnnyDeppsfuturewife Mon 24-Dec-12 09:06:23

Well done on your weight loss human, that's amazing. I said a few weeks ago you'll be overtaking me soon and I was right! I lost 1.9 lb which I am delighted about. I am 166.9lb ie 11 st 12.9 lb. I have eaten lots of profiteroles but been moderate with other meals so my calorie intake hasn't been higher than 1500 on any day.

I hope your foot gets better quickly. I fractured a metatarsal over the summer and it's only in the last couple of weeks it's stopped hurting so I'm pleased you're not in pain, I hope you make a quick recovery.

Good news youcan! Had a quick look on the chat thread and I am so happy for you!

I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the festive season. Thanks for all your great support, I hope you all have a wonderful xmas. Xxx

TheHumancatapult Mon 24-Dec-12 15:41:11

Not there Johnny

Am 12.6 but am pleased compared to 6 months ago was 20 stone ANC yes I'm shopping in sales for me and it's nice to be able have a choice of where to shop and what to buy

Johnny think that's the thing we know better how to moderate ourselves and know that bad days not lead to bad months or years

CheckpointCharlie Mon 24-Dec-12 20:52:06

Happy Christmas to all my friends on ths thread, ie everyone!
Wow, what an amazing thread youcan started, we have all benefitted so much and will continue to do so.

A very happy Christmas and a fab new year to everyone.

Lots of love.

TheHumancatapult Wed 26-Dec-12 05:20:05

Hope everyone had a fab day yesterday

An queuing outside next and it's very odd knowing not only am I able fit in anybof the clothes more so am actually in normal sizes

JohnnyDeppsfuturewife Wed 26-Dec-12 09:46:59

Thanks human we generally had a good day but poor dd2 is still a little run down about having various colds and bugs since October so she slept a lot. She's only just 2 so didn't really understand what was happening. Dd1 absolutely loved it.

Well done you for getting up early for the next sale. I can now fit into 12s from some of the more generous sized shops and have been buying from eBay, but if I get a chance I'll pop online later.

How's your foot human? When I injured mine it was still bruised and swollen after they took the second cast off 6 weeks later.

Hope everyone else had a good day. X

TheHumancatapult Thu 27-Dec-12 06:58:51

Hope dd2 is feeling better soon but glad dd1 had fun

Foot does not look pretty when take the boot of to check . Of to fracture clinic today

Wow into a 12 well done . That is my goal to be wearing a 12 and looking good in it

Yup got some good stuff even ventured into new look and did not feel out of place . It is nice not to stand out size wise anymore . Though lol I'm very noticeable due to my chair

Tortoise Fri 28-Dec-12 15:41:32

Hello all. I have been away from this thread far too long. I will be weighing myself on the 1st and taking it from there. Dreading seeing how much I weigh now.
