    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.)

    Just weighed in Loss of 2.5lb.

    It sounds better than it should be as I've put on a fair bit of weight over the summer (after losing 4stone 2017/Feb 2018 with the help of this thread) so I'm starting from a higher platform than I should be.

    I'm focused again so my weigh in day for recording will be Monday, even though I hop on the scales every day.

    Yesterday
    L:- 2 poached eggs and tomatoes.
    D:- veg curry - it should have been turkey curry made from a carcass in the freezer but I sampled quite a bit so I missed out the meat in my curry. One portion of cooked apple with various berries from the freezer. Last month I did a huge cook up of all last years fruit in the freezer, so I would have space for this years pickings.

    Yesterday I needed to finish off bits and pieces from the fridge. I froze what I could as DH can eat it at a later date but there were a few bits and bobs that wouldn't freeze - custard/trifle/hard boiled eggs so my meals were 'leftovers'. I just hope not too much damage has been done to the diet.

    Frith you seem to have lost an amazing amount of weight these last few weeks using the BSD recipes. I've read the book but do you still stick to a very low calorie count or have you increased the amount you alow yourself?

    Hi everyone, I'm not joining this challenge as I've decided I'm at a weight that I can stay at and I'm happy with BUT......I wish I was as I've lost half a pound somehow!
    Well done everyone so far, onwards and upwards.
    Happy Saturday everyone x

    Zafiro - I think I started in March/April and I lost just under 2 stones in the 8 weeks.

    I then had a “break” until last week and put a stone back on :-/

    So hopefully another 8 week session should lose me 1.5 stones then I’ll no longer be overweight. Break for Christmas then I’ll do the BSD for breakfast and lunch with a normal, but healthier tea.

    I weigh on Monday’s so will see in 2 days if this first week has had any effect!
