Mumsnet Mamas 2005 Week 3(193 Posts)
Well done to everyone - brilliant losses!! Here's to another great week - determination and willpower levels are soaring!
I have lost another pound hee hee. I think I love Rosemary Conley.....
well done everyone, just popping in, ds and asleep and for once i am allowed on the computer they both object for different reasons ds thinks lap top is his and looks delighted if he ever spots it
Well done on your weight loss pinksofa. Same problem in this house - children (4) think the computer is their property. I need to set up a rota for them using it because all I hear is 'Mum can I go on' 'Mum she has been on ages - it's my turn' constantly all day!!! And why is it they do not want any attention UNTIL I get 'my turn' on it!!!
I am very impressed by the trouser tales! Here's hoping!! Good luck for this week, ladies!
I agree that the loss list is fabulous. Well done all. It's really encouraging for me to see what people lose and what the total loss is. Whilst my loss is slow I like seeing it add up (I know it's only been 2 weeks). So, I've set myself a target of <<voice like Harvey>> 2lbs! I'm hoping to do that, though I have two parties to go to tonight. Will be drinking wine with soda water and dancing my socks off.
Good luck for this week ladies. Here's to more trouser tales

sorry I missed week 2 bad reaction to pcos have put on 2lb so am trying really hard this week so fingers crossed. Well done on all your fab losses
Evesmama - prob just fluid. It will come off again without a doubt. Mars - how was the partying??
I have a problem, albeit it a nice one I suppose. I am down to 9.8 and am just under 5ft 2. For my height my weight range should be something like 7.9 - 9.9 so I am at the upper level. I know I feel best at about 8.2 and that is what I am aiming for. However, my family and friends are telling me not to lose any more weight. It is lovely that they think I am slim now, but they can't see me without my clothes on!! They seem to think that I am becoming obsessive or anorexic, and I do not know what else to say to convince them that I am neither of those things, but I know what is best for me. My dh especially does not want me to lose any more - he prefers me to be 'cuddly'. But I don't - I am exercising a lot more to tone up aswell but know I have to lose this little extra before I will be completely comfortable with myself. What do you think?
Hi Miam. I think that you have to be comfortable in your own skin, and if you are not then you have to do what you think is right.
I know your dh may prefer you "cuddly" but if you are not happy that way its up to you. Good for you to be exercising, I wish I had the motivation to do something but I never seem to get round to it!
I look forward to being told not to lose any more weight!!
Sadly the partying was a little dull and so I drank too much wine and too little soda. There was not dancing either. What's happening to my friends, does no one dance anymore Ah well, pinning my hopes on salsa and lots of walking.
Thanks marj and you will soon have the same problem! It is just a shame because I get so excited when I have lost another few pounds, and don't feel I can talk about it now! Never mind, you are right - I need to be happy in my own skin. As for exercising - now that the weather is improving (hopefully) how about starting by just having a walk when you can? You don't have to do structured exercise, just increasing your activity levels will be a huge help. I was reading something yesterday which said they had found that naturally slim people tend to fidget much more than larger people! They say that keeping active throughout the day can be just as good for you and your waistline as going to the gym three times a week. So start fidgeting!!
Mars, they are obviously not as young-minded as you! I love dancing - don't get much chance though. Never mind about the wine, you will definately burn it all off salsa-ing!!!
Infact Mars - next time you are up this way - we can go Salsa together!!
miam, I have the same problem (although not with DH he prefers me slimmer and was not pleased when I gained half a stone or so in December) but I have had a number of people say to me about starting SW in January "What are you doing starting another diet, you're fine?" but I'm not 100% happy with myself and feel the need to lose a little more, when I tell them I am near the top of my recommended weight for my height, they look at my sceptically and pooh pooh the charts. I try to remember it's my health at the end of the day, I want to be a fit and healthy Mum to my DSs. At the SW meetings I was at the consultant said that the worst thing someone can do for a slimmer is to tell them they look great when they are about half a stone or so away from their target, she said it was an instant way to lose your will-power, she advised keeping in mind that it was the weight you wanted to be that was important not the weight other people thought you should be.
Yorkie! But that is the beauty of dancing - you don't have to go out into public to do it - so no risk of embarrassement! The girls and I push all the furniture out of the way, put on the fastest boogie music we can find and go wild! I intend to keep it up for about 20mins, but it always ends up about 40mins of absolutley frenzied jumping up and down! Fabulous exercise and great fun - just make sure you shut the curtains or you risk being locked up!
Demented - I have to say you look great to me! But you know how you feel and it definately is demotivating being told to stop dieting. I want to share my excitement at losing weight, not have to hide it! How are you getting on now that you have left the club?
Roll on summer! I did walk a lot last summer with ds in his buggy actually which I had forgotten about. I will have to start doing that again once the weather improves.
Changing the subject a bit here, but I saw the bit on this site about paying a subscription. I didnt at first as I wanted to see if I liked it but now am totally addicted! Does anyone else pay? I feel like maybe I should as I am on here nearly every day!
Yes I did . Felt I got so much out of MN that it would bother my conscience if I did not give some kind of contribution.
LOL at the thought of you all boogie-ing away, good idea though.
Tomorrow night will be my first missed SW class. I feel fine about it, still having my doubts that the plan is working, still thinking I can't possibly eat all this food on a 'diet' but not cheating so I think I just have to learn to trust it. I feel like I'm not going to lose this week but there is not real reason that I shouldn't so will just have to wait and see.
PS You look fab too, could it just be a bit of on the part of others?
My subscription had well and truely expired and I was feeling very guilty but it is up-to-date again.
