TheHumancatapult Sun 14-Apr-13 09:50:15

CheckpointCharlie Sun 14-Apr-13 09:53:41

No haven't got it yet. Am back at work from tomorrow full time so can be a bit more disciplined there!
I am going to try really hard for the next few weeks and see how I go.

JohnnyDeppsfuturewife Sun 14-Apr-13 10:02:07

Well I've bought 5 tops I don't particularly like from m and s that are size 10. I've been decluttering my wardrobe on and off for months and I think it's time I got more ruthless. I still have a few 16s in there and i need to throw them away and my 14s too. I find new clothes and dropping sizes is a big motivator.

Human I need to exercise too, can't make Pilates for the next few weeks so I will take up something at a different time. Or possibly even try ... <faints thinking about it> the shred.

TheHumancatapult Sun 14-Apr-13 10:57:46

Yup johnny I just looked in wardrobe and thought hmm better rein it back in otherwise none of my lovely new clothes will fit and if we ever get tshirt weather I want be able wear my new clothes . And Gulp 152 days to go my holiday

But 20 to meeting friends not seen in a year

JohnnyDeppsfuturewife Sun 14-Apr-13 12:17:33

Human do your friends know you've been on a diet? Would be such a funny reaction if you hadn't told them and they met half a human rather than the you of last hear. I expect they'll be really pleased for you.

I have thrown some chocolate in the bin and had toast for breakfast. So far my day is going well. In laws over so we'll have to have lunch out. Fortunately they're thin and never have starters or puddings so I'll order one sensible course.

Icb I hope you're ok.

TheHumancatapult Sun 14-Apr-13 13:34:55

They know I lost some weight ( its part of online sn forum we camp yearly ) but I missed August last years and were having pre camp meet up may 4th so hoping surprises some

Doing ok so far 2 litres of water drunk . I have found 2 plus litres helps with energy after few days so here hoping does now as I'm rather tired

JohnnyDeppsfuturewife Mon 15-Apr-13 00:58:51

A half successful day, managed on 1200 cals but ate chocolate and didn't manage the water. I'm now hungry and it's stopping me from sleeping but I need to kep at it. I know that when I'm in the zone I can do it so I guess it might take a few days to get back to it. Wish we didn't have all dds Easter eggs and chocolate downstairs! That's just making it harder.

Hope everyone else had a better day.

TheHumancatapult Mon 15-Apr-13 04:20:57

Hi johnnu glad a bit better day . Yup think its getting back into the swing of it is hard . And once are it be ok well that's what I'm telling myself

Back to early work outs ~ mutters > but over two weeks I put on 11lbsadbut way I drunk lucozade not suprised that stuff full sugar add in cooked breakfast all last week and dinner plus desert and other go adds up but determined to shift it ASAP
Was good day yesterday hoping with schools back and busy week for me be easiet

Tortoise Mon 15-Apr-13 07:42:04

Right, 16 st 5lbs this week. I keep saying it but I really need to get tough and actually lose some weight. I must be the only one whose been on a weight loss thread since the start and still be 2lbs ABOVE start weight sad blush

JohnnyDeppsfuturewife Mon 15-Apr-13 08:26:02

Human 11lbs is a lot but I'm guessing you're still a healthy BMi and much, much less than last year. Well done for going back to the early workouts.

I'm glad I weighed myself because I had only put on 1 1/2 lbs and at 153 I'm still in the 10s. I had expected to be in the 11s. I am annoyed with myself as I am going to have to work extra hard this week. Maybe I'll learn from this and not go back to my old ways?

Tortoise it's great that you're still here and you haven't given up. It does take time to change your behaviour as you can see from most of us on the thread. I know that you'll get there.

TheHumancatapult Mon 15-Apr-13 08:37:50

yeah still am healthy Bmi and i suspect some be down to eating gluten and diet coke etc so hopefully drop of this week

Johnny glad not as ba as you thought and yup can do it


after Easter and school holidays not suprised put on , but you can do it the fact still here is good you so could given up easily

ICBINEG Mon 15-Apr-13 11:02:53

human at that rate you would need to have eaten 4500 kcals a day...

Or in other words MASSIVE water bounce incoming....

ICBINEG Mon 15-Apr-13 11:05:12

My weigh in was 1 kilo down so I'm chuffed about that (just 3 to go now)...but still massively struggling (and failing) to eat only 1200 kcals.

I wonder if it is possible that along with noticing more when I am full (which has definitely started to happen) I am more attuned to noticing when I am hungry?

TheHumancatapult Mon 15-Apr-13 13:07:36

Well done icb

Hmm was drinking lucozade while ds3 in hospital along with chocolate . And I won't mention that one day last week I ate 2 deserts [ blush]

But hoping your theory is right and drop a few lbs this week

ICBINEG Mon 15-Apr-13 13:39:43

I am predicting 8lb loss for you human.

There is so much I could say on the topic of putting in food and nothing coming out the other end....for a week...and just how much my backside hurts now we are on the far side of this apocalypse. I certainly think it explains why my mid week weigh was so very pessimistic wrt this mornings....but people might be eating lunch.

<ouch ouch ouch>

Tortoise Mon 15-Apr-13 16:22:25

ICB Sounds painful! Did you
look like this >>angry (sorry grin )

Today I've eaten a bowl of crunchy nut with ss milk.
A packet of crisps and a bottle of Budweiser. (blame boyfriend for that, i said didn't want a drink when went in pub with him but he bought me one anyway!
Don't know what's for dinner yet!

JohnnyDeppsfuturewife Mon 15-Apr-13 18:03:59

Icb sorry to hear you've been suffering. I have had a few issues in that department myself so will be having prunes for pudding tonight grin.

Not sure I've eaten better today but at least it will be under 1200 cals and hopefully I won't go to bed hungry. Lunch was soup with Dairylea dippers and a cadburys caramel egg. Dinner is a low cal slow cooked sausage casserole. I also have some beet root in the fridge. Seemed a good idea when I was buying it but now it doesn't seem so appealing.

Tortoise Mon 15-Apr-13 18:45:46

I had a piece of breaded cod and savoury rice for dinner.
I couldn't finish the rice shock . Only just squeezed in all the fish but only because I didn't want to waste it.

I don't know if it's coincidence or not but I finally listened to the Paul McKenna virtual gastric band CD last night.

TheHumancatapult Mon 15-Apr-13 18:57:04


Heard good things about the cd


May I suggest moist toilet tissues be your friend for a few days

TheHumancatapult Mon 15-Apr-13 19:00:35

ICBINEG Mon 15-Apr-13 19:23:31

Ha tort my face was more like (in chronological order)


Tortoise Mon 15-Apr-13 20:10:34

grin grin icb.

CheckpointCharlie Mon 15-Apr-13 20:28:20

Ha ha!!! Oh no sad grin

14.0 this morning so no where near as bad as I thought, I ignored the doughnuts at work and did slip up and eat some crisps and cottage cheese but then added a couple of rolls and that was my tea. Soup, apple and yoghurt otherwise. I will lose more weight!

Am aiming for a stone to start with. The wedding I have to go to is on the 22nd of June so I have a few weeks to do it.
