Lost 3lb this week! :)
Good luck everyone...

coppertop · 25/05/2006 10:51

Congratulations everyone! :)

Well, writing everything down seems to be working well atm. Yesterday I managed to stay away from the biscuits and the chocolate. Same again today. Yes! :o

schneebly · 25/05/2006 10:52

All the best for a good week!

suejonez · 25/05/2006 11:10

I'm going to have SUnday lunch at mama Cherry's soul shack in Brighton this weekend. Does anyone else remember it from Gordon Ramseys programme? But I'm going to be good and save up some calories between now and then so I can enjoy it. (at least thats the plan)

amazonianwoman · 25/05/2006 12:56

Thanks for letting me join in. WWB - have just emailed you with my statistics Blush

I've just got hold of the Paul McKenna book and motivational CD - anyone tried it?? I think I need to write everything down too...

SJ - I remember the Gordan Ramsay programme about that restaurant, it looked fab, I love that kind of food Smile. Save your cals and ENJOY!

JackieNo · 25/05/2006 13:52

amazonianwoman, haven't tried the Paul McKenna thing, although I've seen other threads about it. Did read an article in Eve on it a few days ago, and it sounds as though it would fit in well with my current preferred 'diet' of 'eat what you want but in much smaller portions'. I'll be interested to hear what you think.

amazonianwoman · 25/05/2006 19:16

JackieNo - that's exactly it, he bases it on the (researched) habits of naturally thin people, ie only eat when hungry, stop when full, ENJOY what you're eating. And one other principal I can't remember! Have only listened to the CD once, aiming to listen to it once a day.

Will keep you posted!

Hi guys!
I'm back. sorry I've been gone for ages - I was visiting home (Dublin obv.) and was too busy getting ENGAGED to post while I was there. Have since come back but only started reading up on the threads I'd missed on Wednesday. It's taken me this long to find the new thread!!!!

Well done all for your loss so far. I haven't had the guts to step on the scales since I got back!

Am I still allowed in????????????

Duh - posted this on the second thread created!
I'm awake now..... promise!

suejonez · 26/05/2006 10:00

It's bit his like the Davinci code - follow the secret clues to find this weks thread! Wlecome back and congrats on your engagement.

Just take a deep breathe, weigh today and start again today.

Welcome back Grin

amazonianwoman · 26/05/2006 12:51

Congrats on your engagement Smile

schneebly · 26/05/2006 14:08

Congratulations Dee! Lovely news! Smile I had a bit of an 'off' day yesterday - ate pizza, garlic bread and potato wedges! Shock I have done well today so far though and planning pasta salad with oil free french dressing for dinner so that is pretty good. I would really like to loose 3lbs this week to get to 1/2 stone off - will have to get some exercise over the weekend!

coppertop · 26/05/2006 17:50

Congratulations on the engagement, Dee! :)

JackieNo · 28/05/2006 09:02

Belated congrats on the engagement, DeeSmile. Think this weekend is not going to help in the weight loss stakes. We have visitors, which means doing lots of proper meals (including puddings), plus cakes, biscuits etc. Not to mention the odd glass of wine. So not expecting much of a loss on WedSad.

schneebly · 28/05/2006 11:06

just enjoy your weekend jackie and get back on track on monday - there is always next week! You might ever do better than you think!

rosebea · 28/05/2006 22:19

Congatulations dublindee!

Don't know how bad this week's going to be, the bakery oposite is smelling lovely now that it's getting warmer we can really smell the fresh bread with the windows open......
.....must resist!! Smile

Cream slices are evil! Angry

WigWamBam · 28/05/2006 22:23

Congratulations, Dee Smile

Had a bad, bad, bad day today ... took dd out for the day and ended up having a muffin with a cup of tea, an ice-cream, and crisps and crackers with lunch. And then dh brought pizza home for tea ... and I couldn't not eat it, could I!

My willpower is crap at the moment and although I've managed to resist dh's sabotaging efforts for the last couple of weeks I couldn't tonight. Mind you, I've made him hide the enormous tin of Miniature Heroes he brought home last week, so I don't have to worry about them.

Your bad day isn't anything compared to my bad weekend Grin. Went to stay with a friend for the weekend in Brighton - she ordered curry takeaway on Sat Shock and then we went for lunch at mama Cherri's soul shack, everything was fried Shock but then Shock I topped it off with Shock a key lime pie ShockShockShock. I'm a bad bad girl, but I cannot tell a lie - I enjoyed it Shock

Not sure I'll still be enjoying it on Wednesday when I get on the scales!

WigWamBam · 28/05/2006 22:32

I think we're all allowed a bit of an indulgence sometimes ... we'd go mad if we weren't. I just feel as if I haven't stopped eating all day and could feel myself getting out of control, which I really don't want to do again.

suejonez · 28/05/2006 22:37

IKWYM, I was quite pleased at myself that I came in and had a reasonable dinner. No cal home made veg soup, couple of muffins with ham and egg. I would normally have thought "what the hell" and launched into an orgy of eating. I did feel I wanted to keep eating so brought up a low fat pineapple cottage cheese to eat whilst logging onto mumsnet.

It was totally unnecessary, but at less than 200 cals it kept my mouth occupied and logging onto mumsnet kept me out of the kitchen!

schneebly · 29/05/2006 09:10

oh sue - What did you have to eat at the soul shack? I saw it on telly and food looks scrummy! Don't think I could warrant a visit all the way from scotland though!

JackieNo · 29/05/2006 12:12

Mmm - as predicted, not too great here. Ate out yesterday lunchtime (chicken and avocado burger, chipsBlush) but did have a large cappucino instead of pudding (I know they can be pretty calorific too, but it felt as if it wasn't as bad as a pud). Then last night DH had made a big chicken casserole in our new slow cooker, and I made pear and chocolate crumble, with hazlenuts in the crumble mixture, as well as the chocolate. Had to eat it with ice cream didn't we. And there's still a load leftSad. Oh well - have to try to go for a walk this afternoon.

schneebly · 29/05/2006 12:17

ooooh 'pear and chocolate crumble, with hazlenuts in the crumble mixture' am salivating!!!!!!

It's a recipe card I picked up in Waitrose, and it's delicious! It's pretty easy to make - the only thing that makes it a bit time-consuming for me is that I'm dreadful at peeling and cutting up the pears - very slow. I'll happily post the recipe, but maybe not on this thread, ehWink.

schneebly · 29/05/2006 12:20

lol - good plan jackie! Grin

dublindee · 29/05/2006 14:55

well I finally plucked up the courage to get on the scales and I only put on 1lb!!! Must have been the 7 mile walk around the zoo that did it!
