Morning all , room for one more ?

I did start here on thread one but I was rubbish . However I have gone and joined a bloody gym and I have been going 3 to 4 times a week and so far I have lost ten pounds in the last month .

I have two stone to go so need all the help I can get .

coffeewineandchocolate Sat 30-Mar-13 07:28:43

Morning all. I think i was 12st 10 when i joined. I'm now 10st 13 and those illusive 6lb to goal are proving difficult to shift!

JohnnyDeppsfuturewife Sat 30-Mar-13 09:29:52

Hello everyone.

Welcome back willbury. How are you finding the gym? I used to go in my 20s but never felt it was making much of a difference as I found it hard to push myself. I have been thinking about going again but I'll probably sit at home with cake instead

tortoise you're not useless, you're still here and you've gone 6 months without putting on weight.

I joined in the middle of thread 1 and was 13 st 9, only 5 ft 4 so it shows. I'm now 10 st 11 so only 6lbs away from my original goal, although now I'm close I'm thinking of going for 10st as my stomach is still much bigger than I'd like.

human,tortoise you're not the only one to have overdone it. Had a veggie friend over for lunch yesterday so I prepared lovely salads, veggie pasta (which I had a tiny portion of), strawberries and fruit for pudding. Then I ruined it by eating lots of Pringles about 1000 calories worth I can still taste them, my tongue feels like it's been sandpapered, and I have a headache. Feel awful.

human did you have a date? I hope it was a success.

travellingwilbury Sat 30-Mar-13 16:31:50

I am actually enjoying the gym , which is a sentence I never thought I would say . I am going four times a week for an hour or so and it has made me feel a lot better x

I do have to be stupidly sensible and boring with food as well sad

TheHumancatapult Sat 30-Mar-13 19:59:13

sort of date am friend s with one of dads from school and he asked me to come out with him and his friend for dinner.We been out coffee with others from school but this was his friends from elsewhere ,lot of fun was had and not sure where it go but wahey social life

and a bad day here am so so tired eaten more crap today than in months makes 4 bad days this week ,2 hrs sleep last night is now catching up on me

Hi wllburys

CheckpointCharlie Sat 30-Mar-13 21:28:03

Yeay! A new thread!
Am still a stone down, so am maintaining after an immense effort. I am pleased that I now know how to eat without putting weight on but am a bit frustrated that I can't keep up the effort I put in initially.

Am off on holidays now so can post a bit more! Have been v good today, maybe this week will be a new start but. Doubt it as DH's dad and stepmom are visiting from the USA so improbable...

ICBINEG Sat 30-Mar-13 22:13:29

welcome trav ...liking the gym? crazy talk....

So I came along on thread 1 at 13 st 10 and am now hovering around 10 st. Still 7 pounds to go...

I am suffering cycles...2 weeks it's not easy but doable and I lose then 2 weeks of craving sugar with a strength I cannot fight at all and putting on...over all I am managing to lose some each month but it is VERY slow now. I think I might have to exercise the last bit off...

So tell me about the liking the gym thing again?

Bakingnovice Sat 30-Mar-13 22:18:49

Can I join please?? I have 20lb to lose. I just can't do it. And I'm miserable.

Tortoise Sat 30-Mar-13 23:31:26

Human I'm sure you don't need me to say it, but, go careful not to overdo it and slip back smile . This is one of my worries if I do ever lose this weight! Maintaining it is the hard bit.

I'm aiming to be good for a week as of Monday. DS1 will be 16 on the 8th so no doubt cake will be consumed so if I can do well for the week a bit of cake won't hurt.

Tortoise Sat 30-Mar-13 23:31:41

Welcome newbies smile

JohnnyDeppsfuturewife Sun 31-Mar-13 08:28:46

Another bad day for me yesterday. A second day where I ate really mindfully, just one piece of pizza, lots of veg and salad but I finished off the Pringles and some cookies and went massively over calories. I wasn't even hungry. Going out today so I expect the final splurge then back to normal tomorrow. Then I might do a fast on Tuesday just to reduce my weekly calorie average.

wilbury that's amazing, what do you do for an hour? Is it lots of treadmill? I always fear if I go I won't use the equipment right and I'll be the largest person there. I've always had the 'I'll go to the gym / exercise class when I've lost weight' mindset but now I have really lost weight I should do it! I do pilates once a week, they make me pay for 6 lessons at a time so let us know how you're doing.

Welcome bakingnovice it is difficult but not impossible. How are you losing the weight? I have found the support and knowledge of this group invaluable so keep us posted.

This is the first year where I haven't eaten dcs Easter eggs! well just one, a small caramel egg I normally eats lots of creme eggs out of habit or tradition, I don't even like them.

TheHumancatapult Sun 31-Mar-13 08:39:56


I can't afford slip back as no clothes will fit otherwise . I actually felt pretty ill sick last night after eating crap . Think that keep me on track if nothing else will

On flip side as trainjng for a race ( a just to prove i can thing , could not and don't want to keep this level of training up ) I'm working out a lot ( 3/4 hrs a day already done hour of weights plus hour of sprints today ) so should balance out

TheHumancatapult Sun 31-Mar-13 08:49:44

Baking novice Juno right in

Bakingnovice Sun 31-Mar-13 09:36:33

I'm actually fasting 2-3 days a week but have been maintaining for the last five weeks. Lost nothing. But the suns out so I'm going to try and start my walking again. Really inspired by you all.

travellingwilbury Sun 31-Mar-13 13:50:00

Mrs depp to be , I do 20 mins on the treadmill , half hour on the cross trainer and then some weights , I have started doing the rowing machine as well . I think the secret for me will be to keep changing what u do every couple of weeks or I will get bored . There are many shapes and sizes and I honestly don't think anyone takes any notice . I found it hard making the first step but now I feel at home in there . Honestly in rl I am not really telling anybody as it just sounds wrong and weird coming from me .

It sounds like you have all lost some impressive amounts of weight , is it mostly calorie counting everyone is doing ?

TheHumancatapult Sun 31-Mar-13 16:43:09


Mix of very low calorie and low carb plus excerscise ( I was a size 24 I'm now 10/12

Tortoise Sun 31-Mar-13 20:46:16
