2013 Weight Watchers Thread #3(927 Posts)
Right thought I should put up a new thread as we were getting close to filling up the old one!
Useful Notes and Links:
HD = Hairy Dieter's Recipe Book. Circa £7.00 on Amazon and full of yummy low WW point recipes
We share our yummy low point recipes on this thread
We track our losses weekly on this online spread sheet
The spread sheet also has a tab containing all the WW points for every single recipe in the HD book, courtesy of the lovely OhTheConfusion (for working them out) and AddictedtoCrunchies (for having the foresight to paste them in the spread sheet)
Here's to another thread of amazing losses ladies!!
I sound like a lush. I'm not. I just love wine!
I had been going well until last night when I sat up with my sister - I live away and hadn't seen her in two months - and had a few glasses of wine and too many crisps. I don't even know how many to point. I had 29 weeklies left, so if I manage to stay within my dailies today and tomorrow I might be ok, but it's all a bit catastrophic on my first week
If you can't have a glass of wine and some crisps on a special occasion, what's the point?!
Place marked in my diary too for your poas Jazz!
Hi all. Not been great this weekend as had a Chinese on Fri and out for dinner yesterday. Made healthier choices but not convinced. I guess I'll know on Tues Was all delicious though.
What we like? I did earn 5 pp through exercise as damage limitation today...
I've been good! Well bugger that makes a change. I'm so used to coming on here with little angels shining their halos and this time I can report I've been good too.
Tickle ~ I was quite a big wine drinker but cut it down dramatically, then went onto low cal wine (Banrock Station Light) and now (I really can't believe I'm saying this) I DON'T DRINK. I'm still addicted to chocolate though.
Keep on keeping on gang, we'll all get there in the end. (Hope I don't ruin this good run before wi on Friday cos it seems a bit too good to be true).
Fingers crossed Jazz better put you on my calendar too.
Morning all! paws i too have a very polished halo today - have indulged in a bank hol BBQ and Sunday roast and managed to keep within my dailies and only use half my weeklies! Hoping that I can shed that illusive 2lb before Saturdays WI/POAS excitement.
neeko don't dispair and try to be good between now and your WI. You might be surprised (I have lost weight every week I've had dominos/pizza hut) I think it kinda kick starts the body into shedding fat?!
Morning. I WI today and had stayed the same. I only started on Weds though and was doing bootcamp for Mon and half of Tues which is high fat so expect that's why there has been no change (although Dh lost 4lb ). Was quite relived because I thought I'd gained 4lbs then found out the bathroom scales weigh me more than the other scales we have.
PiHigh Have faith. you'll get your loss next week. So annoying how quickly men lose weight initially .
WI yesterday and no change, so hoping for good things next Monday! Vague C25K still ongoing, have done sort of week 4 on the BUPA plan this week - slight niggle with left achilles though
New dress for night out on Thursday - had to buy a size 12 - That is UNHEARD of for me (main requirement was for top half is still a bit clingy on bottom half but not too bad) - so that was some excitement !
Well done on the dress flatmouse
2 off for me at wi today. Really happy. 1.5 more to get me back to goal (though I'd like to get a good few pounds under goal before my holiday 8 weeks today.)
Well done Flatmouse and Neeko.
My size 16 trousers that I couldn't get done up in January are hanging off me.
Think I've reigned myself back in today and am going for a nice sunny run tonight .
That's impressive Crunchie. Enjoy your run. I've earned 9 pp today being out and about with DD2 and doing the school run with DD1
I've just done 4 miles in 42 minutes. Hated every step. Legs were like lead.
What was wrong? Maybe it's too hot tonight? I could never run in the heat.
Well done Crunchie for running regardless! I'm still in awe of those of you who are dedicated enough to fit in exercise!
Had my butternut squash risotto for dinner with garlic bread and salad. Yum..
Had another compliment at work today on how it shows I've been loosing weight. Always puts a spring in my step!
Those of you doing the 12st 7 challenge... Only 8 weeks to go! I don't think I'm gonna get there - even without getting up duffed I would need to average 2-3lb a week.
Well done all. I've just popped on here before bed to report I'm still being good - that's a total of 4 days without breaking my new found resolve - woohoo, very good for me.
I'm meeting my WW friend tomorrow for lunch and our usual eating place has taken the chicken salad we always have off the menu. It's been replaced with a very high calorie salad with cheese and all sorts of extras. Looks like we'll be walking around town trying to find a new cafe/pub with salads on the menu.
Does anyone know if any of the pub chains have low ppt salad? I'm sure Weatherspoons do so we might try there. I know Brewers Fayre did but I don't go there as the one near to me is quite poor.
Keep up the good work.
Oh, I was also wondering if any of you got the free Summer Body Confidence book at their WW meeting (you have to attend 5 meetings to get it). It's a bit like the journal, an 8 week action plan. I thought I might start recording my food next week (depending if I lose or not).
Well done Paws. Keep it up.
I'm so stressed this morning. Had a terrible night's sleep due to restless legs. So then we overslept so had to rush DS to breakfast club. Then got to work without my keys so had to get security up to unlock everything. Then a mad rush to get bus to doc's for a blood pressure check. And it's only 8.40am. And I've had nothing to eat.
Let's hope today gets better.
Crunchie Hope your day improves and you don't resort to chocolate.
Poorpaws Impressed by your motivation. Keep it going.
I'm on train to Edinburgh for a work meeting. So used to running around like a headless chicken on work days that two hours of peace is quite disconcerting!
crunchie hope your day has improved!
rightsaid - wow! excellent - bet you're pleased - i certainly was when i hit the 12s and now i'm determined to hit the 11s in a few weeks!
paws yey, you have your mojo back!
Had a bit of a "try on" session last night. This is after having had an honest wardrobe sort out early days (probably on thread #1). I can now comfortably wear everything on my list (if i'm honest, most will now need altering or throwing out) - except for a black velvet dress which i wore for my graduation "ball" back in 1993! To my amazement i can actually do it up - although i wouldn't wear it at the moment as way too tight, but am planning that it'll be loose and fit beautifully by Christmas! Now the thighs are no longer chaffing (sorry if TMI), i am seriously considering wearing dresses as everyday wear in the summer - something that has always been unheard of for me - even maxi dresses don't look too bad on me now (always a tent previously).
I still have a LONG LONG way to go. I think my end target weight is probably 1st 6lb less than current weight (and that will be top end BMI healthy). But i am so pleased with where i am so far, and that is giving me the motivation to keep going. It's been 4 months now, and i can honestly say i want to stick with this.
I do still have body image issues which i hope that with all the very positive and flattering comments i've been getting in and out of work i will overcome - can't help looking at pic of me in the size 12 dress thinking i still look a size 16-18. (probably due to the bottom half filling the dress out more than i'd like!). I'll get there
Sorry if this sounds like a "yey me" post, but i am hoping that others will get some encouragement from my successes the way i have from yours!
Flatmouse that's brilliant and very positive. I too am determined to get to my target and this thread is a key driver to me getting there. People come and go but essentially the message and support doesn't change.
I have a dress in my wardrobe which I haven't worn in ten years. But I will. Am determined.
