  • Hi Alison, I have been lurking around MFP for a while. lost over 35lb but its been very slow especially the last 5-7lbs. I went undiagnosed for many years. it took 10.5 years to conceive my first child but only 14months from then to have the second!

  • I am taking part in a production of Calendar Girls next week, although my role does not require me to bare on stage All the girls taking part have had their own calander made, so I am in that. Waiting to see what MIL thinks! Haven't told her! Photo only shows enough so you can tell I was nude but to quote the play "no…
  • I've had my HRM on whilst doing Wii fit for an hour of mixed exercise and it burns as much for me as a zumba class 4-500 cals It depends on how much effort you put in. I have a platform that raises the board higher so steps are more of an effort, and I also use 10-15lb hand weights. I lost my first 14lb just using the wii.
  • The website crashed last night but it's back up so the link should work now! (fingers crossed)

  • I went undiagnosed for over ten years & trying for children. So I was quite over weight. Then gained it steadily from there Have managed to maintain at current weight for nearly a year, now looking to kick start the next round of weight loss. It can be done, but you have to be in for the long haul. No quick fixes with…
  • it is the total from your daily calorie goal over the week. so if you have your mfp calories at 1500 per day and you were to eat 1500 calories as net after exercise etc. then your weekly net calories would be 10500 (1500 x 7 days) if you had it set at 1500 but you only netted 1000/day it would say 3500 calories under…

  • I went to bravissimo for mine. I'm now a 34" JJ I used to be a 38K and they don't break the bank either
  • Unfortunately I am one of those that can't stand them! They give me really bad indigestion for at least 3 days if I get one. I have avoided them for years now. I can't have a smoothie as they always use banana for thickening. And it's all I can taste. I cannot stomach banana flavoured things either as they remind me too…
  • I was about 16 when I had mine done. I have two girls and they are not having them done until they are a similar age. I do not want to have to take care of them and clean them but much more importantly. I went to a school that had a very strict policy on Jewellery. One of the popular girls in the class insisted on keeping…

  • I vaguely remember an interview with Jillian and she said it was designed for you to do it every other day, It was the marketing folks that pushed it to be 30 days concecutively instead of a 30 day training plan.
  • My eldest daughter is asking lots of questions about food and if it is healthy or not, I think it was linked to something She was doing at school just before Christmas. I have explained to her that all foods give us energy in different ways And as adults we have to balance the amount of food we eat to the amount of energy…
  • It is hard, there will be tears, but he will learn if you teach him. As someone earlier said let him earn time on his D's etc by doing some sort of sport. But he needs to make an effort. Ask him if he has any idea what sort of sport he would like to try or start him off walking or riding his bike round the block And get…
  • I am 42 year old mum to two girls under 6. I've been here for almost two years. Not fastest weight loss. But I haven't gained it back either. I'm 5" 4' currently 188ish. First mini goal 175. Second major goal 145-150. If I ever get there I plan to make minor adjustments to find my comfortable spot from there.
  • I would check out the Leon restaurant they have one on the strand and one near Soho. Breakfast options include a poached egg which you can have with or without cheese sauce, ham hock, spicy baked beans Toast is a kinda wholemeal and thy also do porridge with different toppings and plain Greek yoghurt also with different…

  • I'm 5'4 and currently 180ish and a size 14. I do want to loose more, it's not happening but I am trying. My doctor told me the other day because of my natural frame size I am unlikely to ever get into a "normal" bmi for my height. He would be happy with me getting to 145-150 and to be honest 145 has always been my primary…

  • My almost four year old is 44lb and about the same height as your little one. As it happens her older sister has been to see a paediatrician as she is tiny, and I took her along for comparison and the Doctor's reaction was "Wow, she's huge!" She took DD2 off to be weighed and measured and when she came back she explained…
  • My Dad is lurking on my friends list here, he isn't actively logging his food but he is using a fitbit to help him loose weight, he's had four stents fitted so he is carefully monitored as to how much he can do. He is a town councellor so he does live a fairly active lifestyle, his wife and him took on my two girls (5 & 3)…
  • I love Leon, especially for breakfast, but it is worth checking cals before you go! Lots of numbers on their website, but something's are way higher than they should be. Bacon sandwich =600+ cals? There's not that much bacon in it. I can make one at home for half the cals. Ed's diner - no cal data available :( But they now…

I am now 34JJ and they weigh approx 12lb between 'em! I am hoping that if I start loosing more weight I might finally loose some from them. Otherwise once I get to goal…

  • I lost my mum a year ago August, she was 64 and it is something which will take time to get over. My mum has cancer, her third type. She survived cervical and pancreatic, then she got bowel cancer and speptisemia from that, she was gone within a week. I had started to try and sort my life before this for the sake of myself…
