    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've been MIA the last few weeks, been a bit frantic. My friend and her son moved, so 2 weekends were involved in shifting her stuff and cleaning her son's flat for the hand-back to the agents. Then my daughter moved, so more shifting of stuff, lugging boxes, looking after grandson etc. My other daughter moved a few weeks ago into a house that needs a lot of work, so any spare time (ha, ha!) we have on the weekend, we're over hers. Only one more house move to help with; our last daughter is moving from renting to owned but no official date for that yet.
    In the meantime, my in laws have had some medical problems, so I've spent many an hour on the phone to various agencies trying to help sort that out, but it's still on-going. What with all that running about, missed meals, grabbed snacks, lack of time to go swimming, my weight has gone up and down, so I've decided to start again from today.

    This morning is a gain of 1/2 lb, so I need to lose 1 more pound to get to where I would like to be (and where I was a few weeks ago, dammit!) Still, could be worse.

    Happy Sunday everyone, keep smiling! x

    I'm afraid i didn't lose this week. Started off good but busy days led to bad food choices. Really need to set aside time to plan and stay away from the rubbish.

    Was 3000 short on my step challenge, will give it another go this week!
