  • For no reason other than optimism, I tried these on again yesterday & they fasten, yay! Too much of a muffin top to wear just yet, but it's all "flooby" with water around there just now so...who knows? Most interesting thing is the scale hasn't budged down in a month *shrugadugdug*
  • So many times this...I'd shake my fist but then my refusing-to-catch-up-speedily-with-the rest-of-me arms would wobble :( :blush:
  • Sounds like you may also suffer from being a lassie...it can be a real joy haha! When I say spot the trend early on though, I meant from logging my weight every day for about 3 months. It's almost like clockwork but I had to weigh for a few cycles to actually see the data. It's absolutely not necessary to do, but it helped…
  • I understand. Half of the week I work from home & if I'm going through a hungry-all-the-time phase I can think about nothing else but food! Ways I combat it that don't include doing something else (understand you have restraints with that) are: Ensuring I have low cal snacks in. For me this includes single serve packs of…
  • The place where I buy my black work trousers from had a big sale on so I decided to nab a bargain & buy the next size down in anticipation of them fitting at....some point? First nsv is that I bought them safe in the knowledge they will actually fit in time. May not seem a big deal, but it's reinforcement that I still have…
  • You've had some amazing advice already but I'd just like to add my quick 2p. No idea if it's applicable to you but thought I'd throw it out there just in case! I only know what I actually weigh 2 weeks out of 4. I "gain" about 5lbs of water during ovulation & again during actual TOM. In the weeks between I get a "whoosh"…
  • I'm so sorry you're feeling this way, I understand how upsetting it is as I was there myself only a year ago. I didn't run outside at first as I had bad knees at the time, but I would don the lycra & take my dogs for a walk doing sort of intermittent jogging. I was very VERY self conscious. So much so that I'd be reluctant…
  • Today is my 365th day on MFP. I can honestly say I have logged every bite & glug to the best of my ability. Have loved reading this thread regularly through it all..always gives me a boost of inspiration to see you all smashing it. Never believed I would make it to this point, but here's to the next year! (Apologies if…
  • I just put on my workout wear...it's on now..what else am I going to do?! If I'm really reluctant I say I will only do my favourite parts of dance fitness.... inevitably this leads to a full blown workout. I always regretted not doing it when the energy comes later though as I need to wait 2-3 hours after eating or I feel…
  • Quite a few just now.... Wild Thing by Jaxson Gamble...everytime he says "down" I stop my run to squat deep as I can haha Whatever it takes - Imagine Dragons Most things by Flume...but in particular You & Me - Disclosure feat Eliza Doolittle Thousand Foot Krutch - Down (Andy Hunter remix) Proper stomper, my goodness....…
  • Always nice to have a wee reminder why we are here & why we keep plugging away - great thread! For me, the rewards have been so plentiful that I'm not sure where to start! Being pain free, no fatigue, getting stronger...what seems like 100s of NSVs (like actually enjoying exercise for the first time in my life)& dropping 5…
  • Thankyou so much for your lovely reply, it made my day :) I remember when I worked out I needed to lose at least 8 stone to be in a healthy BMI.... frightening & overwhelming doesn't really explain it. One of my friends is 5ft & 8stone 2lbs....couldn't begin to even imagine losing a whole her, that's crazy talk! I'm by no…
  • Thankyou so much for your kind words! Your approach to weight loss sounds perfect & 27lbs down is absolutely fantastic, well done indeed! That's around when I really began to FEEL the changes in my body & it so made everything worthwhile. The time paradox never fails to amaze me, honestly think because we are so…
  • I've been with my husband for 12 years & he never knew how much I weighed, I was just too ashamed. When I'd decided enough was enough, he too joined in losing weight but in all our time together, his highest was at the top end of the BMI scale. I on the other hand was over 8 stone (over 100lbs) away from being there! It…
  • I began last July at 34 & am now 35... Not sure I really have a point of reference though as I had never seriously & actively tried to lose weight before now. The last time I lost anything significant was probably in my early 20s but really, it was due to stress & an insanely physical job - not a lifestyle change.…
  • Ahh, thanks so much, really does mean a lot & I'm glad I could help in even a teeny way. Think it's human nature to want results for your hard work like, yesterday & the time can seem to feel wading through mud when you're down the rabbit hole for sure. Early on I had to just forget about how much I had to lose & just "get…
  • So happy to hear we've been slogging together even if we didn't know about it! Not sure what our age difference is(honestly though, I reckon look around ages with me), but I turned 35 in May there & I honestly don't think I've felt this great since my mid 20s....even if I was 1-2 (14-28lbs) heavier then. Really hope you're…
  • Thanks so much, so happy to have met you. I'm excited to see where I'm going haha! Literally anyone's guess is as good as mine cos we're in totally uncharted territory all up in here. Certainly been a rollercoaster & my brain still hasn't caught up with my body but I'm sure it will do eventually!
  • Thanks so much, you're very kind! That's wonderful, well done indeed! Been quite the year, hey?? You look absolutely amazing too, the happiness in your "after"...(during? I maintain mine are during!) photo is just radiating out from you - just fantastic <3
  • Thankyou so much, that really does mean a lot to me. So many well dones, that is amazing! So glad you feel better for your new lifestyle....health & participating in your own life is the biggest BIGGEST upside to all this for sure! Your children must be so proud of their Dad...imagine they absolutely love spending all this…
  • That's definitely a sound plan! I'll be very similar, refuse to go down below a minimum 1500 Cals regularly & currently at 1600-1800(fortunately I'm quite active) so when it slows... I'll just let it Haha, so funny, only yesterday hubs & I went for our 6 weekly muffin at this place that makes them from scratch (takes all…
  • Thanks so much & happy anniversary to you too! Ahhhaaa, should be a walk in the park for us now, right?? Haha if only :D .... The forums came through for me once again when I read about maintenance & diet breaks (really needed a week about 8 months in & now I take about 1-2 maintainence days a month). Think it's safe to…
  • Haha! Thanks so much, know exactly what you mean ;) Gosh, I really hope I am able to maintain when I reach....wherever I'm going! Though I believe I will always have to log & that's just fine by me :smiley: Am indeed in the UK, loving the hot weather but it's been good to have a respite. Have missed not going on as many…
  • Thankyou so much, that means a lot to me. You are doing AMAZING, oh my gosh, so many well dones - you too should be so proud of yourself, you must be smashing NSV's left & right <3 The time flies ridiculously fast, even if it seemingly takes foreeeever while you're down the weight loss rabbit hole! No idea why on earth…
  • Hahaha, I LOVE this! I feel like I'm talking to me on a different account?!? :D I too now have toes that don't touch together....I've even gone down a shoe size & if it wasn't for my hubs, this entire last year I'd have been buying clothes that were far too big! Additionally it was he who insisted I put down the bootcuts &…
  • Last year I joked with my lovely husband that I would tell everyone I met that I was "overweight" on the BMI scale.... was honestly ridiculously excited to get there for the first time as an adult. We said it'd be so funny for him to get in on it too.. So a couple of weeks ago ...I MADE IT!(Though I've managed to reel it…
  • Just saw this pal, so sorry, I'd no idea! I've not been as present as usual regarding posting etc & I apologise for that. Please know that my inbox is always there if you're ever needing a wee chat though Keep trooping <3
  • Felt a hard lump near my breast & went hot to cold....mini panic Upon further investigation I found it to be... a rib. Pretty embarrassing NSV but I'm counting it! :D :#
  • Know you have had a change of heart, but it can still be super difficult to resist "goodies" that are RIGHT THERE! My husband & I are now on different routes with regards to weight. He had a lot less to lose than me & now he's actually having to have lots of lovely cakes, crisps & biccies to keep his calorie count up(He…
  • Thankyou so much... intellectually I know exactly how it happened....mentally I'm like HOW?! WHEN?! I'll catch up eventually haha! Wish I could give you an actual hug, been here myself.... undoubtedly will be again! To say it's a rollercoaster just doesn't cut the mustard sometimes, hey??
