    Loving the discussion today, very informative. I put on weight through comfort eating my way through grief at losing my son. It took 20+ years for the light bulb moment to hit and now I still get guilt thoughts of how My other son missed out on things like learning to swim because his fat mum was embarrassed to be seen. n a swimsuit.
    I now binge eat when I let go of the SW reins which I never did before, then beat myself up over the loss of control. So even when I lose weight I still have issues :o. I worry more now about what I look like than I ever did when overweight, why is that? Who knows :p

    At the moment I am trying to listen to that little voice that says ' hey I'm full so stop eating' which I AM hearing its just my mouth carries on eating even though my tummy is complaining :p. it's all about portion control for me, I.e smaller portions will hopefully match my fullness meter so then shuts my mouth :rotfl:

    So sorry for your loss TIE, puts everything into perspective when you hear what others have been through. Sending you big hugs. If you ever manage to match your portions to your fullness meter can you let me know how cause I've never sussed it. I can keep eating even when stuffed. Can't remember the last time I left something on my plate. Maybe we should make a point of ALWAYS leaving something?

    Another day on plan and I have my syns saved for treat whilst watching BB. DD went shopping with my mum today and brought a packet of marshmallows, however she tried one and doesn't like them, and neither does my mum so I have decided to divide them equally into 5 syn bags and that will be my treat for the next few days. It will be tough as I'm an all or nothing kinda girl, and tend to want to finish things if they are open ( I guess this is where my problem with food comes from) but I will run with this determination and hope for the best.

    I'm another one that would just get rid of all of the 'fat' clothes, there is nothing more motivating then realising you have nothing to wear so you HAVE to slim - especially being :money: and all that! Even though I have put on 2 stone, I am still getting into all of my old clothes, I was a size 18 pre-SW and now where 14/16, it's only my jeans that I have struggled with, and speaking with an old friend the other day who I havent seen for 3-4 months, she said how well I looked. I confided in her that I have put the weight on, she said she couldn't tell and this is a friend who would be 100% honest with me, so I don't really know where I am hiding this extra 2 stone.

    Well done to all of the losers btw, its so encouraging seeing others lose weight.

    Frogga, I always find your posts very uplifting so thanks. Can relate to the binging and the craving approval. My problem is I try to do the best I can but never think it's enough. I'm not very confident with cooking yet my other half says my meals are lovely. He's an amazing cook, should be on master chef, so I doubt my meals are good enough. I don't even post on here what I've made as I think it's 'only this' or 'just that'. I take pics of what I've made some my bf can tell me how lovely it looks which makes me feel chuffed

    anyway, bit of a picky day today, from the extra hot dog on the plate to sticking my finger in the Nutella :-( big dinner party tomorrow night with bf workmates, curry night, so god help me :-(

    Gonna read rest of posts now, hope everyone had a sw friendly day :-) x

    Mrs JB go for it put on what you made even post a pic if you like
    If I posted a pic right now it'd be me on an armchair with a Pyrex jug pint of sugar free raspberry jelly you can tell the effort that went into making that :rotfl:

    Look at the rest of our lists it is so eclectic :-)
    is more i think for a mix of listing for ourselves and also getting an opinion from someone if they think not eating enough missing healthy bs etc

    Also your meals probably are lovely and if your other half is an amazing cook that's brilliant but you probably comparing yourself to him is

    Like thinking ou not good a golf cos you not as good as Tiger woods

    Mrs JB that is probably the daftest explanation there I have done my usualIrish how to make a short story longer bit but hopefully it makes sense

    Have a fab curry night

    I too am sorry for your loss, it does put it all into perspective.

    I'm overweight because I can't resist certain foods, and was always told to clear my plate as a child and it really went from there I've been overweight all of my life. No one really to blame but myself.

    It's funny because I have just started reading a book, and the first chapter is about listening to your body and not finishing a plate of food because it is there, tonight I left some rice and salmon but made a conscious effort to eat my 1/3 of salad first. It's a good read so I will keep going and share anything I feel may benefit others on here.

    I feel the same, but then I think I must have an incredibly heavy brain :D

    It's just water Frogga - so whether it's on the outside (cycling) or inside (drinking) it's doing you good :p Anything you could add to the water (other than whisky) that would make you drink it?

    Put a tea bag in it then - liquid is liquid - it's a fallacy that it has to be plain water! ;)
