Stopping scoffing........who's with me?"

Right, today I'm drawing a line under the ridiculous amount I've been eating and drinking. I've only got about 3 outfits I can fit into and a wardrobe full of clothes that are way to small. I'm going on holiday at the beginning of June and I don't want to spoil my enjoyment by feeling fat and self-conscious.

I'm going to:
1) rejoin MFP - I've already entered todays food.
2) go to zumba tonight and actually put some effort into it rather than taking it easy.
3) make sensible lunches for work rather than spend money on fattening rubbish.
4) stop hovering up my DD's leftovers.

Enough is enough!

Is anyone with me for some moral support??

Just finished a punishing 25K hike with my DS this weekend. Aching from head to toe, but surely must be uber-fit and healthy now? Plan to sit on my a* for the next couple of days though!

worley good for you - glad you are feeling better.

BadTempered hope you had a great weekend! I am planning a weekend "off" next week as I am going out to dinner and don't want to worry about calories.

Brilliant somany! Well done you.

Jojo, you are very welcome to join us smile

I'm having a mini scoff this weekend. Got family to stay and am enjoying myself a bit too much! Oh well. The sun is shining so I can't feel too bad about it!

Welcome JojoMags. You are v brave! I think I would find it hard going if I didn't get to exercise. I am also a comfort eater. I found the Activia yogurt pots quite good snacks as only 100 calories but quite creamy tasting.

Very happy today because I reached my target weight. I am now going to try to maintain and/or lose 1/2 a pound a week, as I still cannot fit into some of my favourite clothes, but feeling great, despite having a stitch for the entire 40 minutes of my run today!

Hello. New here but feeling in need of moral support. Am in post-op recovery and have put on 5 pounds, half of which was in the last week. The trouble is I cannot do anything physical - not even supposed empty the dishwasher, let alone exercise. So basically I am sat on my arse all day. Not a problem when I couldn't get out of bed to get to the kitchen. But now I am home alone, bored, immobile and comfort eating. Getting a snack is something to do, which is really bad, when all I do is waddle back to bed with it! Made worse by the fact that cooking healthy meals is hard as I can't lift pans.

All of the above are my excuses. Low carb is not for me - rice/couc cous/fruit and veg/the occasionaly slice of toast are all necessities, but was hoping I could join you on a low-snack/healthy meals regime. My weight loss goal is also half a stone. It's not much but it makes a huge difference!

Lots of exercise today! Walked about an hour with DS in the stroller and played catch for about 40 minutes. Not as hungry any more either which is great.

BadTempered where are you going on hols? Hope you have a fabulous time!

BadTemperedLadybird Thu 23-May-13 20:19:07

Hullo all,

Good to see what you're up to. Well done on shifting that pound somany.

Hope you're feeling a bit better putyourhat.

I'm still plugging away. Just over a week til I go on holiday but have got family up over the bank holiday weekend so hopefully I won't use that as an excuse for giving into temptation.

somanymiles Thu 23-May-13 05:40:20

putyourhaton I think weight loss is 2/3 food, 1/3 exercise (possibly heard that on Big Hairy Dieters!). So I'm sure you will do fine and hopefully will be fighting fit again soon.

I did lose a pound this week (weighed myself today) - hooray! - so I have reversed the weight gain thank goodness. I am feeling much better now I am not on horrible antibiotics. Am planning a two day hike this weekend and I am hoping that will help! (Although DH says only if I don't take any food with me, cheeky bugger.)

putyourhatonsweetie Wed 22-May-13 10:56:33

hurray, glad to see folk still on the wagon.

I had put on nearly all of what I had lost sad but am back on it now. Still under the weather though so will need to focus on food rather than exercise boooo

somanymiles Wed 22-May-13 05:15:51

Hi again all - haven't posted for a while. I got over half way to my goal and then put a pound back on last week - boo! I have been really strictly watching my calories and can only think that the antibiotics I was on that really wiped me out slowed my metabolism down or caused bloating or something?! Will weigh in again tomorrow and see if things have got better now that I'm off them.Sigh... Need to keep motivated so will try to check in on here more often!

BadTemperedLadybird Sun 19-May-13 09:46:59

I had a fun evening out and I'm not suffering today....bonus! So hopefully I won't over-indulge on the hangover food today.

BadTemperedLadybird Sun 19-May-13 09:44:30

You're very welcome to join us sixchickens. The more the merrier.

Lovely to see you back putyourhat!

putyourhatonsweetie Sun 19-May-13 08:51:17

apologies for going awol. fresh start tomorrow. Got a bit crook and as I was basing diet on exercise it all went a bit pear shaped ... see you tomorrow!

sixchickens Sat 18-May-13 01:20:10

*I did mfp... (stupid phone typing) x

sixchickens Sat 18-May-13 01:19:32

Please can I join in? I did I and lost 1.5 stone (nearly half way to target) but due to various things going on at home a stone of that has gone back on sad Really need to get motivated and losing again. It's really helpful reading all your posts so I hope you don't mind if I tag along xx

BadTemperedLadybird Fri 17-May-13 18:27:13

Weigh in for me today. 3 pounds off!!! Whoop whoop! That takes me to 12 stone and 1/2 a pound. I'm out for drunken fun on Saturday evening so hopefully that won't sabotage my progress too much.

Hope everyone is ok. It's slowing down on here a bit.

BadTemperedLadybird Wed 15-May-13 18:59:06

Glad to hear you've had a loss this week work. I'm trying to channel a similar attitude to you with my DD's leftovers. I tell myself it's her food, not mine and this seems to help me leave it alone.

munch I hope today has been a better day for you.

munchkinmaster Tue 14-May-13 16:51:23

Well done work ate my life. I've fallen off waggon big time today - tommorow is another day......

I'm knackered, builders all over house, cranky baby, work to do at night. Excuses, excuses......

workatemylife Tue 14-May-13 15:22:52

I'm still here ladybird. I totally agree about camel-toe. Not good for the image or indeed comfort grin If clothes feel more comfortable, that has to be a step in the right direction, even if the scales don't want to celebrate with you.
I weighed in this morning, and after the annoyance of gaining weight last week I've managed to lose some this week. I'm a bit stunned as it has been a nightmare week at work and that usually sets me off munching, but so far so good. Another lightbulb moment. A week or so back it was the realisation that work-bought lunches were damaging my waistline and wallet. This week I admit I do tend to pick at food after the meal has finished, which is not a good habit. Last night the kids had left some bits of pizza from dinner, and I would normally have nibbled on both while clearing up. But this time the whole slices went in the fridge, and the half-chewed ones in the bin. If I'm not hungry, I don't need it.
Hope all you other ladies are keeping up with your great achievements.

BadTemperedLadybird Mon 13-May-13 18:01:32

4 weeks in......who's still with me?

Hope you're all well and feeling fairly on track.

BadTemperedLadybird Sat 11-May-13 08:52:55

Well done somany and munchkin smile

I'm half a pound down. Bit disappointed it's not more as I've stuck pretty consistently to my calories on MFP. But, it's all going in the right direction! My jeans feel less snug around the crotch area today, you'll be pleased to know I'm sure! Camel toe is never a good look!

munchkinmaster Sat 11-May-13 08:45:12

Found this thread again - its determined to elude me. Wanted to let you all know I weighed in finally at 10 stone 7. So half a stone down. God knows how I did it as my ankle is still absolutely knackered. Going to try to get to closer to 10 stone by the end of the month and maybe even down to 9 stone by August!!!!!

somanymiles Thu 09-May-13 00:32:50

Just weighed in and (barely) lost a pound. Only 2 more to go for me! Fortunately DH is ignoring both 5th wedding anniversary and Canadian Mother's Day this week so no more being tempted by meals out. (Silver lining!)

BadTemperedLadybird Wed 08-May-13 19:50:50

Worley and putyourhat, don't be disheartened. Keep going former scoffers!!

I was at a home visit for work this afternoon and the family had relatives over from India. They insisted I come to the kitchen after the appointment and gave me lots of different Indian sweets and watched me eat them. It was really lovely of them, so welcoming, but impossible to say "No thanks I'm on a diet"!

putyourhatonsweetie Wed 08-May-13 09:33:57

Well done losers!

After what I thought was a good week I managed to lose no sodding weight whatsoever....sulk.

Back on the wagon with an emphasis on portion control.

Have a really sore throat and a cold coming so leaving the shred for a couple of days - feel considerably less upbeat about the whole palaver. But will get there I think
