ThePowerOfMe Mon 05-May-14 15:42:04

I was but I've just had a couple of choc chip cookies.
Please tell me that's not too bad if its the only bad thing I've eaten today?
I can go back to being motivated then.

StealthPolarBear Mon 05-May-14 17:18:07

Definitely not! If you have a decent meal you'll be fine.
I have decided to have a day off - motivation didn't last long grin But it will be one day and straight back on it tomorrow

Just made chicken stir fry with rice noodles

May make a green juice later

Ran Milton Keynes half marathon this morning so did take on a bit of sugar, but it's left me motivated to keep eating right.

StealthPolarBear Mon 05-May-14 17:25:37

That sounds very healthy!
Ive been doing shred and eating well all week (and the week before with the weekend off sad) so don't feel too bad about having a day off today.

Oh great, I've killed the thread!

It's been months since I even looked at the spreadsheet and I've lost 2 whole lb.

Can I come back please?!

StealthPolarBear Tue 06-May-14 20:08:14

Problem is I can't remember who you were - were you the original MMer?
I had a day off yesterday and am nicely back on it today. Looking forward to my salad

ToeFluff Tue 06-May-14 20:41:17

Yeah 'twas me, cept I've name changed though I think I did it at the beginning of the last thread as it's toe on the ss.

Evening anyway! grin

StealthPolarBear Tue 06-May-14 21:20:33

Evening grin
Have you been dieting in those 2 months?
I was awful until the end of april then something clickedand mmotivation has not been an b issue since. Wish I understood why.

ToeFluff Tue 06-May-14 21:38:14

Err sort of! It was sort of one week on and one week off, I've moved house and changed jobs since I left the thread and everything has settled down and I'm feeling motivated to get back to trying again properly.

So what have I missed? I want to read the rest of the previous one but it feels like I'm snooping so I haven't!

StealthPolarBear Tue 06-May-14 21:39:47

Ive not been on it for ages which is why I started this one, missing everyone. sad
How are new house anf job?

ToeFluff Tue 06-May-14 22:13:22

I've gone from a flat to a house and it's soo nice! Still Renting sadly but I have a garden! I have a window in my bathroom! Wooooo!

Job isn't so much fun, was nice the first 2 weeks but there is so much bitchiness and backstabbing, I'm thinking of looking again as I really don't do well in awkward situations!

Anything new with u? Are u calorie counting? I can't remember!

Was meant to have done squats today but I haven't got the energy, I wonder if those ab belt things work!?

Hello - just posted on the old thread to say you've started a new one.

Kato/ hair / imst and reastie were / are posting.
Toe - were you milkshake?
Stealth - thanks for starting a new thread & well done with motivation.

I'm down between 4-6lb since Christmas - not binging, but not doing too badly food wise. But still doing a lot of exercise. Ratio is probably 20:80 which I fear is the wrong way round.

InMySpareTime Wed 07-May-14 15:36:58

I'm heregrin
I went shopping today. I hate shopping but I needed new clothes as my old clothes hang off me.
Today's NSV was asking the shop assistant in the changing room to fetch me a smaller size of shorts as the 8 was too big! A vast improvement on my pre-motivational changing room experiences of swapping size 18s for larger sizesblush.

eightytwenty Wed 07-May-14 15:55:13

Wow! Must have felt amazing.

ToeFluff Wed 07-May-14 16:55:01

Wow! I'm slightly jealous that's a fantastic nsv! Well done!

Yes I used to be MilkshakeMaker but wanted something that wasn't to do with food!

Having a good day today, I've lost that crave feeling for junk food so finding it easy to make the right choices, might be the holiday that's looming round the corner! grin

How has everyone's day been today?

Reastie Wed 07-May-14 18:09:27

Hellooooooo ( please don't let me kill the thread please don't let me kill the thread )

IMST you haven't lost MORE weight to need more clothes have you? There's nothing of you already grin . Good grief size SIX!!!!

Having IBS issues for a week now sad which is not helping the cause of WL. Am doing T25 most days though.

Sorry to hear about the IBS reastie sad What is T25?
Milkshake Maker that's it! I knew it was MM but got confused with motivational Monday!
eighty, you sound like you're doing well, keep it up.
A less motivated day here, but still OK. As long as I can make it to bedtime without bingeing.

InMySpareTime Wed 07-May-14 18:20:38

Reastie, hope you feel better soonsad.
No, I've not lost any more weight, but I've been walking and cycling a lot so toned up my lower half lately.
I mostly went shopping because I won some vouchers ages ago and DH took a day off to take me to the Trafford Centre and spend them.
I cleared out my big clothes over Lent, so my cupboards were looking quite bare.
I bought 3 dresses, 5 tops and some tights, and still had vouchers left, but I couldn't shop any more.

Reastie Wed 07-May-14 19:26:32

T25 here stealth. It's really good. Haven't lost any weight since christmas (but that's more to do with food than exercise). Am getting more toned though.

Thanks for sympathy with IBS, it's really getting me down, a whole week of tummy spasms on and off sometimes really bad so I just lie in bed sad , nearly stopped my plans for going to a dirty dancing sing a long showing at the week end but not quite grin

Reastie Wed 07-May-14 19:27:00

Oooooohhhhh ,looky looky, the video is on the thread [proud] . Didn't know you could do that!

ToeFluff Wed 07-May-14 19:41:18
