    Weight Loss the Old Style Way! Part 10. Please read posts 1 and 2 before posting. 13th Oct 14 at 12:54 PM
    Hi, i've done the best I can to piece the weightloss information together - I hope it's okay for you all

    As some of you know there's been some discussion lately on how to accommodate weight loss diets on the board. It was decided that the daily isn't the place for campaigns of any sort and that there was a very good weight loss thread on the I wanna board which would offer excellent support to anyone wishing to join.

    The board guides have talked about this and we'd like to accommodate a weight loss campaign the OLD STYLE way here. However, in order for it to fit with the board, it should be about scratch cooking and healthy eating, NOT about where to get low calorie/fat ready meals cheaply or fad diets.

    So, here it is. The Lose Weight the Old Style Way thread. This thread is for support in losing weight but in order to keep it true to the board - which is about money saving the old style way, there are going to be some posting guidelines.


    Important. Please read:

    The thread should be about healthy, Old Style eating. That means recipes and meal plans, support and encouragement and healthy eating. What shouldn't be accomodated here is if the thread goes off topic and covers ready meals, fad diets and weight loss clubs. There is a good thread that covers all that on the 'I wanna' board. So if the thread becomes an extention of that, we will have to close it and ask people to join in there instead.


    Enjoy, and good luck (nb - we run 4 challenges a year, generally either 12 or 13 weeks, with a fortnight off at the end of December , so they run Jan-Mar, Apr-Jun, Jul-Sep and Oct-Dec.)

    Hi all. Knitwitch, I think you missed my gain/loss after my holiday, but it was at a difficult time for you. I hope that things are getting on as well as they can be with your family situation.
    Anyway, a proper 'all fruit Thursday' this week, plus less picking in the evening and I'm back on track. Overall I've lost a pound or so but the cumulative total is .6 lb lost altogether, I'm happy with that. Do I lose my angel wings and smiley face too? Lol.

    Happy Sunday everyone.

    I could scream, have been doing OK, couple of lbs here and there over last 10 days, but suddenly my blood sugars have dropped quite a lot, unusual for me, so I rang doc, have appointment today. Have had to put a halt to the "diet". Think I had not been having enough carbs, not absolutely stopped put potatoes about twice, same with rice etc but still having porridge & fruit for brekkie. Maybe it is not the diet, will see what they say, so after a weekend trying to build up my carbs I may have put on about half pound. Also have been doing a mini walk (5mins) but my other hip (am seeing consultant this month re another op) has been playing up so not been able to increase just yet. Feeling really low, and thats not me at all, maybe that is the sugar (type 2).Not going to cry though, just scream.

    Struggling but .5lb weight loss.

    Mainly having a couple of eggs for lunch with either salmon or mushrooms, followed by a piece of fruit. Dinner is mainly vegetables with a small piece of protein, chicken thigh last night but also I've had a small pork chop, venison steak, and a piece of cod, All followed by fruit in a fruit salad, and sometimes sugar free jelly. Then a very small piece of cheese or dark chocolate plus five brazil or walnuts. very slow progress

    Hello everyone.

    I am officially a gym bunny now! Well, signed up for the swimming really to strengthen my broken ankle, but OH is getting his gym induction today.

    Swam for 45 minutes yesterday, and had a very healthy prawn stir fry when I got home. Frustrated I can't now swim again until the weekend due to other commitments. Feels great to be back to exercising again!

    b: avocado toastie
    d: pasta and veggie salad
    t: will probably be sandwiches at tonight's meeting. Well, they are free.
    s: banana
    Gonna get debt free, and live in a house in the countreeee!

    1 lb off for me please Knit Witch so I finally weigh less than when I started the C25K

    I'll be thinking of you and Dr Knit Witch over the next couple of days. The people that you love stay in your heart for ever.

    It's my birthday on Saturday but we keep everything quite low key because it should be my wedding anniversary and the late, great Mr Cranky's birthday the day after my birthday. I've been widowed 9 years so I'm used to it but I still prefer a quiet day

    p.s. when we first met it took him 3 goes to remember when my birthday was

    Stomach's a bit rough after having a drink last night. Plus, that stuff red-zoned my Fitbit. Evil cider!

    Managed to make the green man dance for 2 days in a row (9/9 hours 250+ steps) - huge progress for me, broken ankle woman!

    b. apple and pecan crisp - stuck to the piffly serviing size on the box.
    d. carrot and houmous sandwiches, banana
    t. Not sure... will be going out so may be a very quick tomato and mushroom pasta.
    Snacks: Babybel light, apple.
