    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 have about 10 different types of frozen veg as I never know which I want on a particular day BUT I love to buy "fresh" veg even though I know that unless you grow your own then the frozen is fresher. I love to prep fresh (silly O know) but then end up freezing a lot - carrots/cauli etc because there is too much so frozen all the way for us singletons/oldies.

    Same here on the ice cream Zafiro1984
    How long is it since we had a lovely long summer which warranted regular ice cream? Doesn't happen every year!
    And half price special offer at the SM too.

    Apart from the ice cream, I'm doing okay!

    That hokey-cokey pound has gone again, so 1lb loss for me this week please knitwitch. Bet it comes back next week! However, on Monday I walked to town and back in the morning, then walked to the swimming pool and back in the afternoon, (swam 28 lengths whilst I was there) total 5 1/2 miles walked, so gonna try and do the same next week.
    I've helped a friend with 2 separate house moves over the weekend, so lots of lugging stuff around. We're cleaning her flat tomorrow and loading up the last of the boxes etc tomorrow, so another busy day. Oh and also a lot of time helping with tiling at my daughter's new place and balancing on a ladder cleaning two massive windows. Sunday will be a day off hopefully!
    Happy Friday everyone x
