Hello for the new thread,since there's no calories in them🤣
WreckTangled · 23/06/2021 13:40
Thanks for the new thread!
I wouldn't consider the fizzy water to be breaking a fast really. It'll be no added sugar and minimal calories. Meh.
I finally went to the gym and I upped my weights on a couple of things. Just had a tasty lunch as shown plus a babybel. 14g of carbs for the lot (that includes the carrot and humous etc). Having a coffee now to try and stave off the sweet craving.
BorderlineHappy · 23/06/2021 14:56
Please tell me I'm not the only one who looks through Instagram and FB stories and drool at the food.
It's the closest I'm getting to it.
PaperMonster · 23/06/2021 19:51
Lol @ @BorderlineHappy!!
@WreckTangled that looks tasty! I miss humous - really sends my bloods high, even just a teaspoon full. My favourite sandwich used to be humous and grated carrot.
Nowt much to report here - got an end date for work and all the legalities are being sorted; saw the private (bonkers) physio and I get the feeling that he’s at a loss with my arm. Not helped by the fact that twice it went into spasm and I was screaming with pain! Parents came for tea. Early night for all of us cos we’re all feeling a bit meh.

A very non exciting day here too. Car went in for a service and I came home with £500 on my credit . Oh well at least I walked a lot today !
BorderlineHappy · 24/06/2021 08:23
Anyone drop any dress sizes yet?
My clothes are looser but seem to be still in the same size.
73kittycat73 · 24/06/2021 11:35
Hello all, glad you found your way over.
Well done upping the weights WreckTangled. It's exciting when that happens isn't it? That food looks lovely.
Talking of food, *Please tell me I'm not the only one who looks through Instagram and FB stories and drool at the food.
It's the closest I'm getting to it.* That's why I watch so many diet shows. They always start by showing the person eating all the food we're not supposed to. They have pizza a lot on My 600lb Life. Make me drool. lol
Sorry things are a bit full on for you atm *PaperMonster8. That arm physio sounds painful! Are you going to look for another job, or just leave it for a while?
Hi Hermie12, how are you today, apart from a quiet one?
Hermie12 · 24/06/2021 12:00
Hi everyone , enjoying the sunshine here and have had a productive morning . Did school run , walking into town, washing , vacuuming and about to mow the lawn ! Although I’m not specifically focusing on weight loss I was pleased to see 10 stone 1 this morning which is 2lbs less then when I started to refocus on the types of food I was eating.
PaperMonster · 24/06/2021 13:16
Well done on the weight loss @Hermie12!
I’m not particularly looking to lose weight and we have no scales (OH has had an ED and it never really goes away) but someone I’ve not seen in person for a year told me that I looked like I’d lost weight the other day! Seriously, I wear clothes that are size 10/12/14/16!!! Depends on the fit I guess. Today I’m wearing a size 16 T-shirt which should be fitted, but is baggy and size 12 bottoms, which are actually too big and I should have got a 10.
@73kittycat73 I’m going to enjoy the summer with my daughter and then, as long as my arm is feeling significantly better, I can look for a job. I’m struggling to drive currently and with living rurally, there’s not many local job opportunities nearby so getting a job involves driving!!
BorderlineHappy · 24/06/2021 13:18
Got my haircut so I'm a few lbs lighter,does that count.Say it does🤣
Talking of haircuts,trainee hairdressers looking for models and when you answer and send a pic,you're not suitable anymore.
Happened to me the other day,she was looking for someone to go quite short and a drastic hair colour.
I fancied a change so I asked about it.
Going fine till I send her my mugshot.Suddenly my hairs not suitable.
More likely she thinks I'm too old.
Anyway the same add was back up the other day Karma
PaperMonster · 24/06/2021 14:49
Ugh, really? Cheeky buggers. I bet you are lbs lighter!!! (I wouldn’t be - baby fine hair here!!)
BorderlineHappy · 24/06/2021 15:23
Got my 2nd Covid Vaccination so in 1 week I'm covered.Ye I'll take that with a pinch of salt🤣
73kittycat73 · 24/06/2021 19:16
Well done Hermie12! 2lbs is great! Do you feel any better? You certainly have energy for all those chores!
Hi PaperMonster, it's always nice when someone notices the weight loss isn't it? I hope you have a wonderful summer with your daughter, and that you get relief from the arm pain asap!
Yes, cutting off hair does count BorderlineHappy. (Checks toe and fingernails, that should count too surely...) What a nasty person to rebuff you like that. I bet your hair looks a million miles better anyway. Good luck with your jab!
BorderlineHappy · 25/06/2021 11:44
I have just had a SW all day breakfast and it was surprisingly tasty.
I was supposed to be going on a walk but i was on the phone for a good 2 1/2 hours today sorting something put and now i cant be arsed.
Hermie12 · 25/06/2021 11:55
Morning everyone. @73kittycat73 I feel better, probably in most part because I feel back in control if I am honest.
@BorderlineHappy all day breakfast sounded good. I had almond based yogurt with some blueberries for breakfast which was nice. I did walk up to the school but was hoping for a brisk walk today. Now looking at the rain and trying to motivate myself to get back out there!
BorderlineHappy · 25/06/2021 11:58
@Hermie12 its miserable and cold here.And looks like its going to lash.
Ugh i have no motivation today at all.
WreckTangled · 25/06/2021 12:32
It's wet and grey here too. I went to the gym at 6 this morning then wet food shopping. Am going to have a nap in a minute I love my Fridays off.
73kittycat73 · 25/06/2021 12:55
I eat SW chips. They are nice when you get used to them. :) Sorry to hear of your phone troubles, hopefully it's sorted now?
I'm going to the chippy today. Mum said she'd eat most of the chips for me.
You might fancy you walk later, when you've calmed down a bit (From stress.)?
73kittycat73 · 25/06/2021 12:56
Good to hear Hermie12, it's always better to feel in control!
Enjoy your nap and day off WreckTangled Sounds like a nice day!
BorderlineHappy · 25/06/2021 16:00
I had the pea and ham SW soup,that was nice as well.
73kittycat73 · 25/06/2021 18:43
How are you feeling now? More chilled I hope?
Guess who had chips for tea? I had a breakthrough in my thinking. Previously it would be about how far away from home is the destination? Can I run back if I need to, etc? Realised yesterday that the only 'scary' thing I have to face is my automatic negative thoughts, and I don't have to believe my thoughts or even listen to them. I had one moment where I focused on my breath as I was breathing fast, took a deep breath and forgot about it. I was OK!
I also ended up having half a portion of chips for tea. Was only going to have a few but they were so good! Me and mum shared them.
PaperMonster · 25/06/2021 18:57
@73kittycat73 that sounds really positive! Wouldn’t worry about the chips - good to have something we normally avoid now and again!! I had chicken nuggets for tea - went to the dentist opposite McDs so we always go after our check ups. For some reason they don’t affect my levels.
Hermie12 · 25/06/2021 18:59
@73kittycat73 that sounds really positive chips sound good too. I did get out for a walk and without getting wet. We are now having a Friday night home disco, my husband seems to have found some serious old school dance tunes . Buffalo stance anyone ? My 6 year old daughter is amazed her old mum knows all the words!
73kittycat73 · 25/06/2021 20:15
Thank you PaperMonster. I looked up the cals of chips online, and with my half would have a maximum of around 500. That fits in with my calories for the day. Did the dentist go OK? I haven't heard from mine all pandemic long. (NHS) Glad you enjoyed your McDonalds. Very nice reward for going to the dentist.
Hi Hermie12. Thank you. Glad you didn't get wet! We were lucky, it turned out quite nice here in the end. The disco sounds cool! I bet it's great fun having a bop, and impressing the kids!
