    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.)
    Here are links to most of the historical threads

    Had my leg dressed by the nurse today (I do it myself the rest of the week) and she's pleased with how it looks today. Healthy eating can only help so :-

    Breakfast : bacon medallions on small w/meal bread
    Lunch : mushroom omelette
    Dinner : high meat content cumberland sausage, potato, baked beans
    Snacks : 2 ginger nuts

    I am on tier 3 for weigh loss surgery ( if I ever get to tier 4 I don't know because of mh problems) so anything with protein in makes my ears pick up I am really trying. I've lost 35 -45 lbs 3 times through sw....I REALLY want to hit 50lbs ( 12 lbs to go from today) before my son easter hols-which is end of march/ early April this year .

    Hi all

    Sorry not been posting much but still down with the flu and have not felt like eating much. When I do feel like eating its not the healthiest as its more comfort eating. However I am pleased to report a 1.5lb loss this week.

    Hopefully feel a bit more like eating normally next week I have also been given an extra incentive to lose weight as I have just been contacted by an old friend who I have not seen for 20+ years and there is a huge reunion of all our friends from that time of my life in 2019. Now back in the 90's I was a fit, skinny minny who used to run. I know I will never get back there as I am no longer allowed to run but I would like to lose the excess weight so I feel more confident in myself like I used to be.

    Well done to everyone for their losses onwards to another good week

    I have plans to try making my own, but haven’t got round to it yet. Musclefood sell lots of good high protein/low carb stuff.

    This is a referral link http://www.musclefood.com/CS90786.

    Quite a few people on MSE order from them. Their bulk chicken breasts are a great buy. PM me if you have any questions.

    I'm really impressed with all the weight losses, it looks like everyone has really buckled down to this new challenge - all except me.

    It was soooo easy to put on 7lb over the Christmas period, but I'm now within 1lb of where I left off at the end of the last challenge.
    Hopefully when I have my official weigh-in on Monday it will be no where to be seen..........here's hoping.
