    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.)

    I'm afraid I ended up eating an extra snack/meal last night of a fried egg sandwich for supper. That's about how much I ate over what I should have - dang it!

    On the plus side I have linked my Fibit app to My Fitness Pal... this will help me drill down more into my food choices, and help me watch my sugars.

    b. egg sandwich
    d. tuna and sweetcorn sandwich with a bit of mayo
    t. I didn't do pasta last night, as I did a quick prawn madras with a jar of sauce I had in the cupboard, so might do a mushroomy pasta tonight, really cram in the veg.
    snacks - apple and mini babybel light.
    Gonna get debt free, and live in a house in the countreeee!

    Hi Knitwitch, not quite sure where the +.4 came from ? Anyway, drum roll please....... total loss overall is now 1.2 lbs from my starting weight, no idea how that happened this week.
    All fruit Thursday started off with a piece of cake which had been made for someone's leaving do. However it had fruit Skittles on it, does that count on all fruit Thursday? Lol. The rest of the day was ok until I succumbed to a bowl of crunchy nut cornflakes, my latest go- to food when I'm in need of something quick.
    Now the trick is to keep it off.
    Happy royal wedding day everyone, I'm sat here watching it, so glad the weather is good for them x

    Forgot to post last week, but in the past 2 weeks I've lost 3.5lbs. I have been relatively good, still avoiding the 'naughties' when I've been shopping, and eating a lot more fruit, although I must admit I had a chippy tea last night, but that was after a 3 mile walk.

    Hi, went to doc and the culprit seems to be the old water infection. Probably had for some time, no pain just 1 1/2 - 2 hr toilet all through night too (not helpful with arthritis). Had tablets but think its still around. Gone back to the eating but waited until sugars were back to normal. I had sort of cut carbs but more for the slimming. Will give a day or so then back for more tablets. Weighed this am but not yet checked if lost anything. Thanks for asking.

    I can claim another 1lb loss this week (total 2/7), but after I thought it would be a cinch, it was in fact a struggle to get it, and I think I can say a huge thank you to the loveliness of going swimming for helping me with that against what would have been a bit of a self-sabotaging end to the week. For all the patient logging I was doing Mon-Fri, I only went and succumbed to pints and late night chicken burgers on Friday, when I knew I'd have to also spend Saturday in a pub, where the available food was, yet again, burgers.


    Something I shall not mention on the cutting down thread, but I lost a friend to alcohol-related illness this weekend. Not a close friend to me, though he was to my best friend. That's the second friend in a year to this horrible disease. Both younger than me and I am barely middle-aged unless you are mean.



    Yesterday was my first alcohol-free day since Wednesday.



    So going swimming yesterday was absolutely glorious. I just switch off from the outside world and swim and swim and swim, following the lines on the bottom of the pool.


    Today:


    b. avocado toastie
    d. carrot and reduced fat houmous sandwich, salad leaves
    t. sausage and mushroom pasta with passata.
    snacks . apple and mini muffin (leftover from last week's picnic, still miraculously okay. Well not miraculously. That's sugar).
    Gonna get debt free, and live in a house in the countreeee!

    I don't know why but I seemed determined to sabotage my efforts to lose weight this weekend. I seemed to be eating everything in sight. Why do I do that?
    Ah well back to the plan today
