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

Hello all, seasons greetings all. Glad you're back tortoise, 1st is a good time to start, like human said you should be so sick of sweet and rich food it'll make a nice change to eat healthily.

So how's everyone been food wise? I feel really greasy and fat and craving vegetables and salads (it won't last!) I have been more restrained than usual, i only had one really bad day, boxing day, when I ate so much I gave myself a stomach ache and I can't remember the last time I did that.

I am finding that when I have large lunches I don't want dinner so my body's definitely changing. Dh, who is naturally thin, is a bit like that too, so I'm hoping that my habits are becoming more like a thin person's. Obviously I still have nearly 2 stone to lose to get to a normal BMI but hopefully I can get there by the summer.

I will be weighing on Monday and starting diet again on Tuesday by throwing out any cake or naughty foods still in the house.

Poor checkpoint, hope dh is looking after you. Men are a bit crap when we're ill yet they expect us to look after them when they have the slightest sniffle.

Checkpoint hope you are feeling better and that dh pulls his finger out or threaten book into a hotel with your germs and leave him to it

Hi johnny

Yes I can't eat nowhere near as much as I used to am just not so hungry think my stomache has shrunk a bit

Hands out wine oppd takrs takes back hsbds iut sunglasses shines halogrin though not done any proper excerscise will be restarting that in the new year but hacd been busy so hoping that counts

I have been good over Xmas bar couple cans of dirt coke but knocking that on head As I know past experiences it affects my weight So hoping I actually see a loss ( I used holiday early December as my wagon fall off )

I'm aiming to keep at it till we go away in April school holidays as know it will involve swimming every day . then have a few days of then and then home and restart ready for the big trip in September where shirts really are a must due to temptures

I have from last weigh in 2 stone and 6lv to loose to take me to where been aing for may adjust it as get nearer will see

CheckpointCharlie Sun 30-Dec-12 20:25:43

hello lovelies, DH back to normal as I got really cross with him and pointed out that he was being an arse. Or something to that effect but shoutier!

Somehow I seem to be where I was before Christmas, I havent binged but I havent been careful either.
Hi jonhhy nice to see you, to see you naice!
Can you tell I am having a glass of wine! (have loads in the frigde as havent really drunk all holiday - UNUSUAL!)

Lets all get mega motivated and shit all over January - I am going to come over all youcan and find a rousing speech somewhere to chuck at us, she is really good at them!

Until Tuesday, adios and Happy New Year Losers x

I'm struggling with my brother being ill! He's 18 and acting so pathetic! He started with a headache and feeling cold. Today he was sick. Finally convinced him that bed was the best place to be to avoid germ sharing! He's been babied so much as the youngest child, he can't cope without his mummy! Well, tough! I have 4 dc to deal with, he needs to grow up. (feel a bit mean though lol)
Dd1 is starting to feel rough to now! Ds1 has had the flu type cold. I really don't want it.

TheHumancatapult Sun 30-Dec-12 22:20:36

Oh no tortoise

And know its making sweeping statement but men are crsp at being I'll in my experience


Glad DH is being better

Are we keeping Monday as weigh in day or Tuesdays as know tgar may be when most restart

Festivedidi Sun 30-Dec-12 22:27:24

Hi all. I've been away from this thread for too long. I've been hiding from you all I think as I've been eating far too much blush.

I got on the scales this morning and am ashamed to say I've put back a lot of what I lost so am now only 5lbs lighter than when I started sad

I'm getting back into it on the 2nd (the 1st is my dad's birthday and we all go to his house and have far too much unhealthy food - again).

I WILL reach my target weight this time. I'm not sure whether to keep going with vaguely following SW or to do something different this time.

Human sorry to hear about your foot, I hope it gets better soon.

Tortoise Sun 30-Dec-12 22:31:01

I agree with that, must be man flu. It was the way he kept groaning as if to get attention! But then when I asked what's wrong, he seemed to lose the power of speech and just mumbled something. Luckily he's spent the afternoon upstairs.
Dd1 doesn't want to go to bed as feels too ill. Dd2 is still up because she's scared to sleep alone! This could be a long night sad

I'm going to weigh myself Tuesday morning this week but will go back to Mondays after that. smile

CheckpointCharlie Sun 30-Dec-12 23:07:25

Hi didi don't stress you are still half a stone lighter than in Sep, that is a brilliant way to start 2013!

tort do you think it might be the noro? If so quarantine him quick!

Good point human maybe we should do tues.

Ok let's go with that then, for this week only we weigh in on Tuesday
Made it bold to grab attention!

Anyone lurking, come and join, it doesn't matter if you have out weight on, we have all had ups and downs, <cue emotional music> we have all had stress and illness to deal with but we are all lighter than we were and that was our aim!

I am going to say out loud <sort of> that I want to be 12 stone by the end of this year so two stone to lose. My DH has just said he will get my nickname tattooed on himself I if do it. If that is not a good enough incentive then I don't know what is!!!

See you on tues!

JohnnyDeppsfuturewife Mon 31-Dec-12 00:10:11

Hello Festive, good to see you. 5lb is still an amazing achievement and you've proved you can do it once so you can do it again.

Makes sense to weigh Tuesday as it's a new start. Fortunately I'm not going out NYe as kids are so young so I won't feel tempted to drink or eat crap. I tried to be good today but a friend came over with cakes and biscuits and it seemed polite to eat them! I feel a bit sick now.

Checkpoint, very rousing. You're right, we can do it <shakes fist in the air a lot> I will not be defeated by any more pizzas and cupcakes. My muffin top will vanish, I WILL go to top shop without being the fattest person there <slams fist on table>.

I will be expecting to see pictures of the tattoo when you meet your target (unless it's in a naughty place!)

Festivedidi Mon 31-Dec-12 00:19:20

I've just signed up for WW online. It is currently cheaper than SW online and I can't really make it to meetings. I even logged what I ate today and I was within my daily points allowance shock. I'm going to be really good tomorrow although I am going to a friend's birthday party and will have to eat something just to be sociable, but I will not be drinking any alcohol as I'm driving.

Checkpoint I want to see photos of the tattoo as well. Make sure he doesn't chicken out when you reach your target!

Johnny I just want to be able to fit into any of the clothes in Topshop, I don't even care about still being the fattest in there. My first goal is to get back into the size 16 jeans I bought a few weeks ago and have only worn a couple of times.

Tortoise Mon 31-Dec-12 00:21:48

I don't think it's noro, think he was only sick once. But he's not eaten anything today. Think all getting various symptoms of a flu type bug. Seems to be a lot of it around. Dd1 has a headache and cough. Ds1 had cough and felt rough. He didn't eat much for a couple of days. dd2 had a cold and cough and has been slightly off food. Just Ds2 and I to go now! sad

TheHumancatapult Mon 31-Dec-12 06:38:51

Festive 5lb lighter is still 5lbs light than you was and you done it before so know can do it again And yup small goals But allow yourself time of


Sounds like season of coughs ,colds and germs in your house .

Hope dx feel better soon


warn your dh there's a lot of women who will be expecting see tatoo so better be careful where it is .

Since we're weighing in in Tuesday I can have my breakfast now rather than after .

My goal is to loose stone and half by Easter as we're away for a break and to get back to excescing once foot allows me . I will not be hiding under baggy tent tops this summer

We can do this ladies even when we stumble we can get back to it

CheckpointCharlie Mon 31-Dec-12 14:38:30

Ha ha to slamming fist on table and waving it about! RRRAAAAAARRRRR!!!!

DH already has a mega tattoo that he saved up £1000 to get, he went to a famous bloke in London and everything so this will be a breeze - unfortunately I don't get to pick the place so it will probably be somewhere very obscure.

Mine will be huge and somewhere non flabby, maybe by then I will have a choice of where to put it! I already have a tattoo wrist band type thing tha I have to cover up for school so I have to be careful not to have it somewhere visible! (although every single parent in my class has about ten so I would fit in perfectly well)

Good luck tort, hope you don't get ill ?!

Happy New Year all, see you bright and breezy tomorrow morning!

Tortoise Mon 31-Dec-12 16:17:42

My brother is still ill. He said felt better last night then this morning feels ill again and was sick this morning. Feels ok laying down but dizzy and sick when stands. Also feels cold but isn't coldvand heart feels like it's beating fast. Very odd. Not sure what to do really.

TheHumancatapult Mon 31-Dec-12 18:02:04

Hmm is be otherwise healthy tortoise ? Know some nasty bugs going round

TheHumancatapult Mon 31-Dec-12 22:11:55

Tortoise Tue 01-Jan-13 00:46:13

Happy new year smile. Here's to being slimmer this time next year.
DC all stayed up till midnight as they do every year grin .

Brother has managed some chicken casserole tonight. He's got a cough and croaky throat but is on the mend I think. smile

TheHumancatapult Tue 01-Jan-13 06:21:15

While you party animals sleep in have checked and am down 2 and 1/2 lb which considering no excerscise and been drinking diet coke I am pleased with

But the diet coke is done now and back to drinking lots of water .i can do this we can all do it

YoucanringmySleighBells Tue 01-Jan-13 09:03:40

Ah hello everyone! I am SO sorry I havn't been around. The husbnad is here until 6th of of January and then normal service will resume!
Rousing speech CCC flowers
And Human - thanks for the ever dependable motivation and bloody amazing weight loss!!

I have most definately put on a good few pounds..and am still being very naughty today but am going to try and reign it in. Once husband goes back I am am back on it - all over it in fact.

However - I will not weigh until the last Monday of January so that I don't put myself on a downer about how much I have put on.

Husband will be gone 11 weeks. I want to be 10st 10pounds by then.

As it is New year - has anyone revised their targets for now?? xx

CheckpointCharlie Tue 01-Jan-13 10:02:30

Hello ladeez, so am now 14.1 which is up a teeny bit from before Christmas but overall, a ten pound loss from when we started so I am happy with that.

My aim is two stone youcan!
I am determined and now I know I can do it and more or less keep it off I feel pretty positive and motivated, am going to eat soup!!!!

TheHumancatapult Tue 01-Jan-13 10:20:16


Nice hear Fron you and hope you enjoyed Xmas . So glad your dh is home smile did he notice the differance . But yup just enjoy him being home plenty of time for other stuff after

My goal is still 10 stone and will see once there if go a big lighter am thinking 9.7 ish so I have some leeway for having a blow out

But first mini goal is be below 11 stone before go away in April as I shall allow myself to have some time of then for a few days

JohnnyDeppsfuturewife Tue 01-Jan-13 10:25:18

Omg! Omg! <dances round room hysterically> yesterday I ate like a pig. About 4 glasses of champagne, Christmas cake, pizzas, crisps, tiramisu. I stopped entering stuff into mfp when it reached 2000 cals at lunchtime!

Anyway I weighed myself and I only put on .4lbs in 8 days. So I'm 167.3 lbs. and still under 12 st (just). I don't know why my body has been so good to me but today and tomorrow I'll be chucking away festive goodies and then back on the diet.

Well done everyone else for still being here. It will be a happy new year because we are in control!

TheHumancatapult Tue 01-Jan-13 10:25:19

Oh and ditch the diet soda again as defintley makes a differance as I find it makes me feel more hungry but hey Jo I don't drink so my treat over Xmas . But will increase water again as well as that's dropped of

TheHumancatapult Tue 01-Jan-13 10:26:50

Yay Johnny grin and that should drop of quite quick to I find that when had a break then I see some big looses for few weeks after

Tortoise Tue 01-Jan-13 10:44:36

Weighing in at 16 st 3lbs which is around what I was the first time I joined the thread!
Aiming for 1 st loss to start with as have a good 5 st to lose I think shock.
