Hiya all - another week another thread.

I'm not happy today - 11.5 this morning and I was 11.4 in the middle of last week.

Enthusiasm is flagging a bit, but I'm sure it's only temporary. If I go to the gym - or should that be WHEN I go to the gym I'll feel better I'm sure.

How's everone else - it's been very quiet in here lately

Hi Iota and fellow fatties. I'm still feeling really motivated, which is unusual for me but I think it's because I now know what I weighed to start with and it scared me into action! Last night we had chicken thighs in bbq sauce (recipe from Fat Girl Slim) with peas and baby sweetcorn. I picked at dd's cheese omelette at children's tea time so that's not good. I must start giving her something I don't like for supper! Today, 1 piece of toast and 1 apple, predictably enough. You know what I ate yesterday, same as usual except the smoked salmon was in a sandwich and I had 1 sesame snap more than I normally would!

ok beety - I'm going to the gym at 11 am - if you see me on here after then, kick my butt

I've also been walking at least 40 minutes every day on a school day.

Hello wwww - I wish I could walk to school, but it's just a bit too far for ds2 who's 3 - and no he wouldn't want to go in the pushchair - and then it's 5 miles to his nursery - if I was really fit I could give him apiggy-back and jog

What a PITA Cod! Today

1 piece toast
1 pack sesame snaps
1 smoked salmon sandwich
2 apples
2 glasses apple juice
large tuna steak, hoisin sauce
roast carrots, sweetcorn, peppers, onions and small potatoes with skins on (only had about half a small potato)

And I walked to school but not back as I went back to bed at 2.30 and slept til 5pm (dp picked up). So I feel human now.

iota Mon 31-Jan-05 20:09:57

Hooray, the smoked salmon is back on the menu

Just wanted to say that it looks like everyone is doing well and sticking with it. Sorry I have been absent for a little while!

I will get back on the weight loss. Well I am still trying and have lost weight each week. Only half pound last week as had big all expenses paid night out, and have a ball this weekend!

I have been feeling pretty down and haven't really been focusing on the diet stuff too much. What with selling/buying house, TTC and all this work stuff I haven't known whether I am coming or going at times. Still don't at times...but at least I can see the light at the end. My resignation at school is now in and March 17th is my last day, I think. I will get through it till then - even if I hate each Tuesday and Wednesday until then. 12 working days left...and counting.

I will try and do the food diaries and weight loss again after this weekend and the Ball is out of the way. Promise!

BTW, on a good note. Although we've been going to the gym since the start of the New Year adnd I was so bad at swimming. I have still stuck with it, swimming a couple of times a week and last weekend I managed twenty lengths, in one go (well, I did put my feet down each end but not stopping properly) - week before I was only up to 2 sets of 5. So feel very proud of doing that

Hi hula nice to see you back. Should you be dieting if you're TTC? (good excuse not to)

where is everybody? there were hoards of them at the start of this - has everyone else given up?

I'm newly resolute - did a Pilates class today - perhaps my waistline will shrink from holding my gut in all the time

HeyEnidYouveLostWeight Tue 01-Feb-05 19:47:33
