  • Hi! Are you all doing the Action Plan study? If so, I would LOVE to hear what you thought of week 1. It got me excited for the rest of the study, but I have to admit that I am having trouble eating the suggested amount of fibre. I see, though, that week 2 has more information on that, so I hope it will help me a bit. I am…
  • Hi! Sorry I haven't posted on here before. I started the Action plan this week too, although I have only done the work until Wednesday. Yesterday and today were unbelievably hectic days so I plan to read those 2 emails and do that work over the weekend. Certainly a lot to think about in there! I will post more when I…
  • Hi! I'm from Hampshire (although currently living in West Africa! Will be back in Hampshire from July though :happy: ) Married and Mum of 3 great kids. I have been on MFP for a couple of years now. Had some great initial success, but then "relaxed" a bit too much and put quite a bit of it back on. Determined to be serious…
  • I love this! Well done. Now go and enjoy those dodgems (and post a photo :laugh: )
  • This looks interesting. I am seriously considering it. I did click to sign up. Not yet ordered the book though. I have to be sure I will do this before I can justify the expense of the book! Finances a little tight right now. I will let you know what I decide, but it does look good.
  • I am British, but live in West Africa! Weetabix are always something I bring back with me in my suitcase after visits back to the UK! Love them with skimmed milk and covered with a sliced banana! My daughter loves them too, so we have to "ration" them out to make the packets last until the next visit back to the UK!
    in Weetabix! Comment by jaajh February 2014
  • Thank you for posting that! It was the kick I needed.
  • HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! I hope you have managed to enjoy your day ... without over-indulging (although I am sure I read somewhere that a small amount of birthday cake has no calories :wink: ) Enjoy whatever you have planned for this evening. Praying this next year is a truly blessed one for you ... and that this time next year…
  • Just had to post something on here for any sharks still checking in! SHARKS ARE AWESOME! So proud of each and every one of you! Just look at those final results!!!! :bigsmile: :heart: :love: :happy: In the main challenge, we had sharks in 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th place! (Shame a Dolphin got that number one spot, but Verda is…
  • I have just seen these results and WOW! First, congratulations have to go to Verda - you are officially the BEST BEAST :bigsmile: Even if you aren't a Shark :laugh: Well done - and your victory was totally deserved :flowerforyou: But, it has to be said that the SHARKS ROCKED! So incredibly proud to be part of this amazing…
  • My final weigh in: 168.4 lbs. Gained 2.4 lbs this week - BUT since I lost over double that in the past 2 weeks with Dengue Fever, I am happy :bigsmile: Just need to stop it increasing any further now :blushing: On a positive note, I am going out today! Taking a car ride. First time I have been outside my house/yard for…
  • I loved this quote! Thanks for posting it Verda! Here is my gem for today: "Make the decision, then do something - no matter how small - toward accomplishing what you want. " With that in mind, here is my small attempt at this week's challenge so far. Still recovering from Dengue Fever, so any cardio (workouts or reps) are…
  • HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL! I agree with Pam that all of you here are so encouraging and a great group of people to "hang out" with! Thanks for all your encouragements in 2013. Looking for to this carrying on in 2014!~ As for the good days/ bad days bit, yes Pam, I think we ALL go through that. My only "tip" is that I talk…
  • Seems like we are struggling a bit this week with all those festive treats. I am certainly needing to start to say no to my sweet tooth again now my appetite is back. To Pam and all those others who have felt liked they "failed" over the last day or two, TODAY IS A NEW DAY (and tomorrow is a whole new year!) Here is my…
  • YEAH! Well done Kristie, Mary, Pam and Melissa!!! FOUR sharks in the last week is AMAZING :bigsmile: :heart: :love: I so hope a shark wins this!! GIVE IT ALL YOU HAVE GOT for this final week girls :happy: Here are my points for last week: Water: every day = 35 points Under sodium: every day = 35 points Exercise: 0 points…
  • Like Mary, I am delighted to see 4 sharks still in this! GO SHARKS! But also BIG congratulations to ALL of the remaining contenders! You have done amazingly well to get this far. WELL DONE! So sorry that I had to get sick and drop, but I'll be doing #2 and #4 at least this week along with you :bigsmile: Sheri - do we also…
  • And my encouragement for today: "You have failed only when you quit trying. Until then, you're still in the act of progression. So, never quit trying and you'll never be a failure."---Tommy Kelley No Shark is a failure! So proud of the way this team is mastering this challenge! Let's keep going and end this year well…
  • Fuzzy brain still! I went into hospital on the Friday last week, not Sat (as I had calculated) so only did 4/7 days of good habit. So should be -10 there and not 25 points. Will take the 35 off mt total. Total week 11 points now 120. Will change on chart.
  • Here are my points for last week - week 11 (finally!) Water: 35 Sodium: 35 Exercise: 25 (First half of the week was OK!!) Good habit: yes (just!) : 25 Bad habit: yes : 25 Encouragements: 5 (missed a couple of days :blushing: ) Smack talk - yes, smack/encouragement to all teams - 5 points Total: 155 (I will take that!…
  • Week 12: 165.8 lbs - loss of 5 lbs since last Friday, and had already lost 1.1 lbs because of sickness then! Dengue fever aids weight loss! I totally realise much of this will go straight back on now I am beginning to eat again, but thought I'd record anyway. Will tell Sheri to just note that I weighed in, but NOT to use…
  • I even added Kristie's stats to the chart - just because I have missed it :laugh: See ... told you I am doing a bit better! Ok, off to lie down again now! Hope to me around more for next week. Will add my points for last week later. (Once I feel up to trailing through my stats to add up what I actually managed!)…
  • My encouragement for today: I just read some of your posts on the main page, so I see you are already noticing those changes! Keep thinking those thoughts! Right now, I am thinking "Well. Healthy. Well. Healthy" - and am getting there slowly :happy: Hope you all had a great weigh in! Mine was superb :laugh: Noted it…
  • Kelly - I saw Dar had to drop out and realise that makes you the only remaining Wolverine. Makes me sad to think of you not having teammates left to encourage you, so this is a smack talk with a difference: GO! GO! GO! KELLY! ! You are the most amazing Wolverine ever! (Although if you ever decided to morphose into a shark,…
  • It takes a LOT to stop this shark, but Something finally has :sad: as I told my beloved shark pals last Friday when I was taken into hospital, I have Dengue fever. Seems even a shark can't argue with that (although it started the Tuesday night before and I STILL completed last weeks challenge - just! - so I put up a good…
  • My amazing, fabulous, wonderful shark pals ... You have made me cry, and I love you all for it! Honouring ME this week?! :noway: and you have been doing it in style too :bigsmile: not even Christmas week can hold sharks back! So proud of all your efforts. Update on me. Was home on 23rd but pretty much confined to bed,…
  • Shark pals I need those prayers again. Really sick. Husband brought me to hospital yesterday morning. Spending my second night in here tonight. Seems I have dengue fever. I feel awful. Seems I am going to be out of action for at least 2 weeks. So glad someone brought me an internet key so you don't just think I have gone…
  • And my motivational quote for today (again speaking to myself in particular!) : "Rather than aiming for being perfect, just aim to be little bit better today than you were yesterday." Have a great day Shark pals!
  • @ Kristie - So sorry to hear that news. Your Aunt Barbara sounds like she was a wonderful person and I can see how much you will miss her. I am praying for you and your family at this difficult time. :heart: @ Pam - Glad you arrived safely. Have fun with your family (but watch all those drinks :huh: :laugh: ) But, yes, the…
  • Another weight loss tip that we ALL know, but I find so hard to follow! I am putting this up to help myself, more than anyone else, follow its advice today! Sorry - that is a little small! Not sure how to make it larger. But you get the idea anyway :bigsmile:
  • I am feeling a little more positive today - TOM arrived this morning, so that might partly explain why I was also feeling so negative these past few days. (And may even explain some of my weight gain last week :bigsmile: Although I can't totally deny any of my own fault there:blushing: ) I really appreciated all your…
