    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.)

    Honestly I'm fed up with this pound I've spent the last 4 weeks loosing it then putting it back on again!
    I'm trying extra hard this week though so fingers crossed I'll break this stalemate next week (in the right direction of course!)

    Oh dear, it's an indication of how well (or not!) my dieting went this week that I completely forgot about reporting my progress on here!

    How can you just forget you're meant to be dieting?!

    We have family stuff going on (nothing bad, potentially all good), son is trying to sell his house and buy another, lots of interest in the one he wants etc etc...
    So nothing bad, but it still makes me jittery and more likely to eat....

    I think I'm a STS, didn't risk stepping on the scales this morning!

    STS again.

    Well, I've got to the end of this challenge, lost the weight I wanted to AND kept it off, even with eating biscuits and cakes (just not every day!).

    It seems that I've got to a weight that my body is happy with and one that I'm happy with. I can keep it relatively close to where I want to be, give or take a few pounds here or there.

    Altogether I've lost in total about 1 stone 3lbs ish over the last 18 months/2 years and kept it off. I'm not planning on losing more, so I won't be joining the next challenge, Knitwitch, but thanks for your support over the years.

    I'll be popping back every now and then to see how everyone's getting on,so good luck everyone and happy Friday everyone. x

    CathA, that's great that you've achieved the weight you wanted and are keeping it off. That's the big challenge!

    I've lost nothing this last week, but I've finished the challenge lighter than I started, so it could be worse! I'm going to spend the next wee while concentrating on home and family, and getting treatment to try and improve my back problems, so although I won't forget about dieting completely it's not going to be top of the agenda.
    Good luck to those who continue onto the next challenge.

    Hello! I am back and signing on for the next challenge.
    As we are moving again, I need to resist the lure of easy junk food and remove the goodbye party excesses!...still some of those parties to attend...

    I aim to lose 10lbs.

    As DH will already have gone, it should be a bit easier!...not sure when I get to go - have to relet the flat and pack and find somewhere bigger than one room...

    The circadian code thing was quite interesting to do but not at all compatible with any sort of social life!
