Thank you Not

Welcome nocuts. I have quite a bit of weight to lose, I'm currently 11s 11/12 lbs (keeps fluctuating!).
I want to get down to 9 stone ideally. I've been following Slimming World for the last 8 weeks and I've lost half a stone.
Before that I lost a stone and a half just by eating better and doing C25K. I know for me that it has to be a combination of eating well and moving, but exercise hasn't been good as of late, so need to concentrate on that a bit more!

Not2bObvious Mon 20-Apr-20 11:15:16

Have you been listening to the slimming world podcast we spoke about before curvy, the serious one not the jokey one? I was listening to one about goal weights/maintenance when I went for my walk this morning (first early morning walk in probably 6 weeks!) and it was really interesting. I’d love to be 137 pound, so that’s 9 stone 11. Only 26 pounds or so to go...

Yes Not, the serious one, I'm finding its really helping, even more so now that groups have been cancelled. We do do a zoom meeting every Tuesday evening, but it isn't quite the same!
I think you will get there soon not!

lifelongfrugaleer Mon 20-Apr-20 11:38:03

Ah sorry was I too premature...
Hopefully, pretty much sts for the last few days. Even without proper tracking I've not gone over maintain calories

Not2bObvious Mon 20-Apr-20 11:41:59

I’ll get there quicker for sure by cutting out the vino, the rest of you aren’t awful lushes like me so this is one bit of low lying fruit I can work on. Of course I’m only on day 3 booze free but for now I’ve no inclination to drink. Granted it’s a bit early in the day but hopefully you know what I mean😉

Signing in thanks! Having gained this week after pretty consistently losing all year I definitely need the accountability and inspiration to keep going with eating better and exercising without gym/swimming

CurvyInAllTheWrongPlaces Mon 20-Apr-20 11:52:59

Not I don't really drink, but I think being inside all the time makes it more of a treat, I think we need to go easy on ourselves.
I've had a couple of ciders this week, one was to celebrate a year being single and the other was just because!

Lane, I can recommend the slimming world podcasts, they are done by two lovely ladies, got to thank Not for putting me on to it!

CurvyInAllTheWrongPlaces Mon 20-Apr-20 11:53:50

Well done life. Are you feeling 100% yet?

Not2bObvious Mon 20-Apr-20 12:18:28

I really enjoy it and I don’t even do slimming world, I love the funny one too for a more lighthearted look at it all.
Love me a podcast

curvy I did slimming world and lost 3 stone getting down to my target weight. But after a few hiccups and stopping going to group ended up 1st5lbs over. I found the group I was in was more like an AA meeting than slimming world I wasn't feeling motivated anymore. But the plan does work, I just found for me I ended up quite greedy with all the free foods and ate way more than I needed even when i wasn't hungry.

Today I had beans on toast for breakfast (still got gluten free bread so need to use before it goes off) keeps me fuller than porridge too.

I weighed yesterday so will try not to weigh again till next Sunday morning. I was 11st 5lbs. Target is 10st

CurvyInAllTheWrongPlaces Mon 20-Apr-20 13:03:47

nocuts, that's a shame that it became like that.
I was really sceptical about joining a group, but I got a free 12 week referral from work, so didn't have anything to lose, but the support I have received has been amazing.

lifelongfrugaleer Mon 20-Apr-20 13:17:57

Yes I'm totally fine now. No more excuses to be had grin

CurvyInAllTheWrongPlaces Mon 20-Apr-20 13:34:38

Life, it wasn't an excuse, you were ill. I think I would celebrate by eating a big slice of cake, especially after you lost your sense of taste wink

lifelongfrugaleer Mon 20-Apr-20 14:34:37

Oh I know that and I had to be kind to myself. I made chocolate brownie yesterday. Yum

lifelongfrugaleer Mon 20-Apr-20 14:35:13

Although taste and smell still not fully back.

CurvyInAllTheWrongPlaces Mon 20-Apr-20 14:36:30

Ooh chocolate brownie!

Not2bObvious Mon 20-Apr-20 15:31:55

I made rocky road yesterday...slobber
