  • Hi all, Sorry for being MIA, will try and catch up on some posts later! Had the Covid jab on Monday and has bascially knocked me for six, not been feeling well at all and have def not been eating right! Coming round now but not been a good week :( @minstrelofsarcasm and @melaniedscott - could I be excused from weigh in…
  • Hi all, @Calli1616 - I think writing a plan down always helps you to focus more on what you're actually aiming for. Mind you my 'plan' for weekends is usually just 'stay away from the kitchen' so I'm prob not the best person to advise :D @KristieJC - Jessie is just gorgeous <3 My cats are murder when I'm trying to do…
  • Hi all, Weigh in username - podperson1 week - 1 PW - 189.2 CW - 184.0 Think some of that is water weight but will take it lol! @lennoncpa - yay for extended Sunny visits :) and fab loss (he must be motivating you!) @minstrelofsarcasm - mums are the worse with their well-meaningness :D Mine has thankfully told me that she…
  • Hi all, Shiny new thread :) So, I'm Shelli, I live in Edinburgh, Scotland with my best friend/flatmate and my kitties. I've struggled with my weight most of my life, have yo-yo-ed up and down and tried pretty much every fad diet out there. I'm the poster child for unhealthy living - have a junk food addiction and hate…
  • Hi all, We're a little quiet in here this week - hope everyone is ok and just off being fabulous :D @ljdanny - I agree that having a child around can be exercise in itself! I'm not sure how old your granddaughter is but is she able to join in with some exercise with you? I know when I do my zoom zumba a couple of the women…
  • Hi all, Welcome to all our new members! *waves* this is a super supportive group and am sure it will help you reach your goals x @lennoncpa - aww, always love the Sunny pics, he's such a chilled out wee cutie <3 @minstrelofsarcasm - oh ye of little faith, I'm convinced I could have totally eaten an extra 15,400 cals :D :D…
  • Hi all, Apologies for being MIA. CW - 189.2 Some might be water weight, some might be post totm, most is just me being a human hoover *sighs* It has not been a good week!
  • Hi all, @minstrelofsarcasm - eek, pulled chest muscle sounds painful! Glad you managed to get to your class still but try not to overdo it x @bumpbreakcar - woot for getting out more and putting the steps in! Sometimes when we get totally out of routine it can be easier to build up the good habits again and sounds like…
  • Hi all, @pacsnc6 - you have more willpower than me, I'm unable to stick to the 'just one' rule when it comes to either brownies or doughnuts :D @goingape - better days are always good :) sounds like you have a busy week, your crafting weekend sounds lovely! @sleepymom5 - you can do this, hang in there x Today has been…
  • Hi all, @lennoncpa - yay for cute Sunny pics <3 hope you're having a lovely time with your son as well x @KUMEcyclingteam - great loss :) @dbrinkmeyer - every little counts, great NSV with your clothes fitting better x @kandi3570 - I have been thinking about starting C25K again, unfortunately I have started it several…

  • Hi all, I'm able to get on here - yay! Site has been awful for me this week, could get on the logging pages but nothing on the community side would load. @sleepymom5 - having food put in front of me is terrible for me as well. Went into the office on Wednesday and they had 2 giant boxes of choccie biccies and shortbread…
  • @debbiewsharpe - thank you x Yup, I weigh first thing in the morning each day, same(ish) clothes, scale in the same spot. I'm used to having maybe one day when it fluctates but I can usually say, oh I went overboard yesterday, I had xx with loads of sodium, it's totm etc. and then it will balance out the next day, but has…
  • Hi all, I'm so confused with my weight this week! sun - 184.0 mon - 188.0 tues - 186.2 wed - 183.9 thurs - 187.0 fri - 182.8 sat - 186.6 I don't know what is happening! I'm not that different to my normal plan, maybe slightly more carbs but still roughly within calories limits, and I'll often have a bit of a jump one day…
  • Hi all, Apologies for the late posting, this week has totally got away from me! Will try and catch up with all your posts later but hope everyone is having a good start to the month. The scales are being weird - shooting up and down by crazy amounts, so will post a weigh in tomorrow if that's ok. My food has been ok, more…
  • Hi all, @kirsten11872 - glad to see you back, reading everyone's posts def helps me with the motivation as well x @melaniedscott - I'm with you, I much prefer working from home! My work have been super keen to get everyone back into the office as well so have compromised with them and I go in one day a week and work the…
  • Weigh in username - podperson1 week - 4 PW - 186.2 CW - 183.4 Will take that :)
  • Hi all, @rachelrjh - glad the scales are behaving again! It's weird how much it can shoot up and down just overnight @tryingagain5 - only a teeny gain so am sure you'll be back in the right direction this week. Glad you got to meet with your book club, sounds like fun :) @jedaschultz - moving house is super stressful, hang…
  • Hi all, @rachelrjh - totally have to echo what others have said, there's no way that you've put on 3lbs overnight! Weight can fluctuate a lot and it sounds like the combination of the injection and prob high sugar/sodium from binge foods are to blame here. I'm sure it'll go back to something more 'normal' the next day.…
  • If you are feeling genuine hunger pangs in the evening then it could be worth looking at your daily meal plans and seeing if you can add/switch in some more protein heavy options to keep you feeling full. A lot of the time though I find it's not my appetite I need to control, it's my bad habits - especially when it comes…
  • Hi all, Hope you're all having a good Sunday! @dbrinkmeyer - eek, sounds stressful, hope everyone is getting back online and power back on! Had to laugh at your hubby - guess the workouts are def working ;D @goingape - evening eating is totally my downfall as well, hang in there x @debbiewsharpe - wow, those steps are…
  • Hi all, @sleepymom5 - eek, falling on the ice is never good - glad it doesn't seem to be too serious! (and yay for daughter's boyfriend being there lol, I remember a good few years ago I went flat on my butt on some ice while out and a random stranger had to help me up, uber embarrassing!!) Having a day cooking with your…
  • Hi all, Hope those of you across the pond are staying safe with the storms/weather x @minstrelofsarcasm - gyms giving out chocolate should not be allowed lol! Been a tough week all round I think but sounds like you're getting back on track. Will have to try that cake mug recipe, oh and Congrats on the raise <3 @kandi3570 -…
  • Hi all, Lol, it is funny how one person's warm is another's freezing. We've warmed up a bit here - about 40-45 I think, last week was well below freezing though, lots of nasty snow and ice. Thankfully we had some rain at weekend so most of it has cleared away now, even a little bit of sunshine today! @melaniedscott - that…
  • Hi all, @sleepymom5 - that seems to be exactly it! I start the week of well and it all goes downhill lol. I really need to give my willpower a good kick in the *kitten* Glad your week is starting off better. @1theresamcvean - hope you're ok and not being too run off your feet x @xX_PhoenixRising_Xx - sorry you're having to…
  • Weigh in username - podperson1 week - 2 PW - 184.6 CW - 185.2 Been a rubbish week
  • Hi all, @goingape - great loss, go you :) @Freeglerock - sorry to hear you're having family stress, it is just the worse for overeating. Hang in there x @sleepymom5 - so sorry to hear about your brother in law *hugs* take your time in getting back to 'normal', don't push yourself too much. Glad to see you back though, you…
  • Hi all, @debbiewsharpe - I'm really loving your habit building, those 5-10min slotted in are def going to add up! I'm a total wuss with weights as well, only like the smaller ones. Though I did read somewhere that more often with smaller ones is better for toning rather than actual bulking up. I'm sure someone more…
  • 2lbs a week is a great amount to be losing, please don't stress about losing more than that. Some points to think about; contestants on The Biggest Loser are generally at least in the upper 200s and more often well over 300slbs. The bigger you are the quicker you can drop, and the lower you get the more it slows down.…
  • Hi all, Thanks everyone for the scales advice. I've managed to run a recalibration and fingers crossed it seems ok - is at least giving me the same numbers in a row anyway :D I get so annoyed with scales, they just don't seem to last anymore, and I tend to buy ones that say things like '10 year warranty' but by the time it…
