Hey new thread since our old stopping smoking and not gaining-too--much weight has been lost from chat! BOO!!!

I am not a good role model however as I HAVE piled on a stone, well 12 lbs now, since giving up the cigs.
This must be rectified!
Hence joining in the club section!

Donnadoon hope you find this thread.

Everyone else pile in, join and be happy or miserable bastard ex smokers

FrantasticO Sat 30-Mar-13 22:13:07

All by myself!
Any other old songs to bump thread!

Donnadoon Sun 31-Mar-13 14:20:30

I 'm here Fran, liking the new thread (still in shock about last one being torn from us so brutally)
Liked to read back through our waffle from time to time too and now its gone, forever I feel bereft lol
Oh but pastures new and all that
had only a few bites of choc here and there today so far nothing too drastic
But the day is far from over!!

Donnadoon Sun 31-Mar-13 17:41:08

oh and its a good job that we both posted on the champix thread otherwise I wouldn't have been able to find you to inbox you either
still no egg consumption....Yet!!!!

FrantasticO Sun 31-Mar-13 19:35:40

Hey, roll on tomorrow!
They will be rolling me, I'm mutating into a barrel due to food consumption!
April is the month it all changes...I can feel it in my bones!

I'd have found you, who else would listen to my moans!

Maybe the holiday weekend has made us a bit wobbly on the wanting a cig front? Anyhoo you never and that's the main thing!

Catch up soon.

FrantasticO Mon 01-Apr-13 11:23:04

Just smoked 20 cigs.

April fools!

Hope you are well!

Donnadoon Mon 01-Apr-13 12:48:10

Ha ha ha you got me!! My eyes couldn't read quick enough!! I gasped for a second
Hope you are having a nice Easter
I'm loving lazying around I have picked rather than troughed like a pig but it is Easter so think we're allowed
Got both dds poorly with sore throat and temperatures and generally grouchy bless them

FrantasticO Mon 01-Apr-13 16:51:06

Aww hope your dds pick up soon,it's rubbish when they are ill.

I've definitely pigged out...I'm such a grubber!

All stops now though.

I've a holiday and a swimsuit to think of the fear is kicking in

Joined a weigh in thread and everythingwink

Enjoy your chilling out. We've been out all day, going to sit down have some homemade curry a small vino and relax now!

Ongoing extended family bizarreness continues, but I've realised I can't change other people, so just going to concentrate on my family!

Catch up soon!

Donnadoon Mon 01-Apr-13 21:19:02

Extended family are more trouble than they're worth sometimes..we've managed to do some dodging this weekend what with poorly kids
Oh but I've troughed today Fran , loads of chocolate today, The backside feels wobblier for sure
I forgot to tell you that the new jeans nearly had to be surgically removed on Saturday
I think I managed 4 hours in straw was when dd (whom often follows me to the loo bless her) said "Mummy what's happened to you?! How have you got those scratches on your skin?!"
Of course they weren't scratches ..just digging in marks grin

FrantasticO Tue 02-Apr-13 09:26:44

I'm laughing so much at dds comments.
Sounds like my house...I rarely get to the toilet without a running commentary on one of my body parts...normally the belly...why's it wobbly mummy???
Sometimes the knees take a bashing and my youngest has a hobby of looking for nonexistent spots!

I am on the wagon!
Diet and exercise will be my mantra!
Resorted to jeggings as everything was way too tight!

Extended family on both sides are a joy.
Can't do anything right some days for doing it wrong!
Anyhoo bring it on April! grin

FrantasticO Tue 02-Apr-13 16:52:44

Pfft bloody freezing here, kids are wanting chocolate at every sitting and I'm being super good!

I will get into my jeans again one day.

Pfft why can't the bad things in life for you taste rubbish and vice versa?

Hope your dd feeling better today.

Catch up later grin

Donnadoon Tue 02-Apr-13 20:50:52

Hiya nothing to report here dds still not 100% but a tad better than yesterday
Been continuing to pick at kids eggs the sooner they are gone the better
Stayed in all day today but caught up on washing and bed changing etc
It's actually been quite sunny here today and we've not had the heating on
Not thought about cigs since Friday when I went nuts at DH for throwing out some paint I was keeping to refresh under the window where it goes mouldy
And is now discontinued so means having to paint whole room again
Do you do your excercise classes in the hols or is it term time only?

FrantasticO Wed 03-Apr-13 20:25:44

I'm sooo fancying one today.

I know I won't so maybe that's a new stage?

Get me mrs philosophical! Hope it's a new stage and im not going to randomly fancy a cig for the next however many decades!

How's the poorly dd?
Hope she's perked up and your enjoying the Easter hols!

Catch up later

Donnadoon Wed 03-Apr-13 20:53:38

Hiya dds getting there thanks
I often wonder how long I will fancy one for SIL has been quit 14years and still fancies one (eek)
Consumed 1 and1/2 eggs today ( eek again )

FrantasticO Wed 03-Apr-13 21:39:29

Nooooo 14 years!
That is long bloody time to be fancying a smoke!
Now I know when you say egg you mean with a yolk and good form of protein egg, not a lurvly chocolate one!!!

I had my fair share of crap over the weekend as my work trews are telling me today...the pain...but I will NOT go up a's hoping they don't split!!! blush. I am exaggerating a lil bit!!

Glad dd is recovering!

Catch up soon

FrantasticO Thu 04-Apr-13 21:11:47

Well all ok here.
Another day of work done.
Managed to class straight after.

Ho hum feel there should be something else to report but...nada!

You ok?

I'm off to watch family affairs have you seen it? It's sooo funny once you get by the many stereotypes!

Donnadoon Thu 04-Apr-13 21:44:06

Hiya no never watched that before
All good here although I have a horrible feeling that my sore throat is trying to return..won't be worrying that its something more serious this time as I don't think I know ANYONE who hasn't had one this winter that is lasting all year it seems So yeah think it just keeps going round and round
Well done you for going to class
I haven't been doing the dog this week what with the dds poorly...they on the up now though
I've still been eating too much but not bothered yet it'll be when the sunshine finally appears that I'll shit myself
Ta ra for now

FrantasticO Thu 04-Apr-13 22:29:28

It's modern family, not affairs...worth a glance!

Glad dds on the up, it's crap when they are ill. I had to take a day off due to kids being unwell lt week...not popular at work but what can be done?

Sorry to hear your throats sore again, have you tried echinacea apparently it's v good at keeping colds and virals at bay?

Speak tomorrow

Ref. good things tasting bad I'm on a healthy WOE most of the time and the way i manage it is with flavour; its always to add raw thin slices of onion to salads (you can soak them in fresh lemon juice for a bit or even overnight in a covered container overnight) if you can't bear the strength of it. Also garlic that's nice crushed with a bit of salt and added last minute to stews curries etc.

ppeatfruit Fri 05-Apr-13 09:54:02

Excuse typos grin!

FrantasticO Sat 06-Apr-13 12:27:21

Hey donnadoon. How are ya?

All going fine here, wish it was Easter again thoughgrin

Off to hit the swing parks soon cos we are soooo rock and roll!

Donnadoon Sat 06-Apr-13 12:52:14

hiya Fran
dd been keeping me on my toes...a rotten cold bless her
I wish it was Easter again too lol
Have fun at the park and dont be tempted to try and squeeze into them swings for the littleuns

FrantasticO Sat 06-Apr-13 22:13:50

Aww ended up at a and e!
Best plans and all that. All good, just pays to never let them do anythingfun

What a day!

Hope your dd is better today

Donnadoon Sun 07-Apr-13 16:35:43

Aww Fran hope you all ok!
Told you to stay out the baby swings!
Seriously though hope all is well
My dd okish she is only 6 months so its hard for her to feed properly all snotted up
Not ate tooooo much this weekend but not moved much either
The mantra for me is fairly simple as in " eat less move more "
But easier said than done...for example DH had been out with the kids on the bikes and then they tidied the garden ..great but it's still too chilly for me what a wimp
So I've been huddled up in warm house again arguing with a multi pack of kinder bueno again

FrantasticO Sun 07-Apr-13 17:34:53

Ah thanks donna.
She's fine all stuck back together!
2 yr olds tend to think they are invincible which can lead to mums in tears at a and e.

I'm a big fat pig today.

Feel quite down today and did for a moment think screw it a cig would stop the piemanship.

Maybe it's hormonal and that's why I NEED sugar!!

All will be better tomorrowgrin
