    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

    I didn't do an official weigh in last week because I'd just come back from holiday but when I got on the scales this morning I was very happy because I'd lost my holiday gain and some more. So I'm reporting a net loss this week of 2.2lbs.
    So today will be
    B. Fruit, 2 scrambled eggs and mushrooms
    L. Chicken salad and ricecakes
    D. Not sure because we're going to a show tonight and will be eating out

    So yesterday OH defrosted chicken instead of pork... but then we switched plans and went out for his birthday.

    My choices were pretty virtuous: asparagus and poached egg to start with hollondaise; gurnard, cockles and clams with salad leaves... oh and a chocolate parfait. Over the day I was 2266 in vs 1913 out calories, which means I need to catch up, but could have been worse.

    Plan for today, and no one can make me deviate as I'm on my tod:

    b. dry fried egg sandwich on superseeded bread.
    d. Carrot, apple and walnut slaw.
    t. chicken, curried cauli and quinoa.
    Gonna get debt free, and live in a house in the countreeee!

    Sigh......I have to report another .....STS......week. Still, better than putting it on. I have been beyond busy this week and really haven't had enough energy or time for the usual fight between my appetite and my conscience.
