  • Take one frozen banana, 6 unsweetened almond milk ice cubes, 1 teaspoon of sweeter of choice, 1/4 cup of milk, 1tspn vanilla essence berries or flavourings of choice. Whizz in blender till smooth. It's not quite ice cream, I kinda prefer the individual tubs ice cream calories and all but nice as a change.
  • Being 900 under calorie goal per week certainly won't make you gain weight! How long have you been gaining? Have you changed anything else aside from swapping daily total for a weekly one?
  • I am 99.9% confident I will hit my goals. Why? Because I've done it before and have freakishly good weight control (8 years healthy! Whoop!) I always hit my weight/fitness and life goals eventually. The 0.1% is only because you never know what life will bring. I'll hit my current goal slower than some since I don't so…
  • I lost about 120lbs 8 years ago and I have not logged everyday during maintance but remained a healthy weight the whole time. The couple of years of logging taught me invaluable lessons I have never forgotten. One technique is to continue logging you weight and if it goes too far out of your "happy range" go back to…

  • Diet coke, black coffee, herbal tea's (but I log the honey), salt, pepper and dry seasonings (but I do log rubs etc) like mixed herbs, sugar free gum, sometimes I don't weigh the herbs off my window sill. I'm too lazy to weigh cookies etc, I go by the one cookie is x calories although I understand a two cookie pack often…
  • I think it depends on the individual and how hypnosis works for them. My ex did fantasically quitting smoking through hypnosis therapy, I tried it and may as well have burnt the hundreds it cost me. I guess it comes down to how willing you are or your mindset. I have to admit i did not go with the most open mind (I'd seen…
  • This cheered me up. I'm going through the same stage as your first paragraph losing weight where I don't really want to (collar bones, and arms) the bits that have the wobbles are all hidden under my jeans. I'm glad it evened out for you, gives me hope! My mum's started getting worried and making the comments. Im pretty…
  • Almond milk doesn't look great in coffee since it kinda curdles but rates great! Really nice flavour to the coffee you don't gr with milk. As does cashew. For tea and other drinks though it has to be semi skim cows milk! @KillRKit can I ask how you froth yours, my almond milk never froths with my milk frother (one of those…
  • Higher armpitted tops? It can be caused by having badly fitting bras and bra straps being too tight too. But yeah I can't seem to get rid of mine either, imbfairly sure it's not possible. It is slightly better at higher weights on me/less noticeable. I've got a lovely line of wrinkles under mine to boot. Lol.
  • My first was 200lbs (2006) then I aimed for the middle of the bmi 132 think (2008), then hit that and aimed for 15lbs less, hit that then decided I looked awful and aimed for 125lb again. (2011) this went on for a year or so of scale related misery. (I've maintained roughly 128-138 ever since. I gave up on scales and goal…
  • Could you let us know what the issue is? Is it water/fat/genral midriff appearence? I have to do similar things on occasion and figuring out what you want to change about your appearance is key, then you can work on how to fix it (And still sometimes impossible with 7 days). Seems unlikely you'll drop any fat in a few…
  • Yes, I have had augmentations (well 3). The first was because I lost over 120lbs in my teens go in from a 44dd to a deflated 32b. I never regretted it as my boobs never bounced back so to speak. They were horrific. My advice is its a BIG decision. Cosmetic procedures are not something to be taken lightly. Risks and pain…

  • For filling as in volume. Take 40g oats and 500ml of water microwave for about 5 mins (you'll have a slushy mess but don't panic!) refrigerate over night. Reheat your oats in morning for two mins with an extra bit of water and you'll have about three cups of hot (now normal textured) oats for the calorific value of a…
  • Don't try to race anyone else at the race day! There will be some fast and slow runners most likely just go at your own pace. Do a practise run on similar terrain if not the same place as the race before hand. My first u made the mistake of underestimating how bumpy it would be.
  • Thigh gaps are genetic unless your asking about unhealthy weight ranges. I have one when I'm near over weight thanks to freakishly wide set legs. All it does is mean your phone drops to the floor when you put it on your lap and skinny jeans look stupid like your legs are stuck on funny. I don't get what all the fuss is…
  • Nothing your likely to spill over yourself but other than that you'll come across much better if you order what you actully like and enjoy yourself instead of miserably picking at a dish you dislike because you think it's what a girl should order. (Personally I would opt for what look tastiest, maybe a sharing desert like…
  • I prefer home, luckily I have a fairly well equipped home gym with cardio machines and weights section but I do use the gym to keep my form in check and get out of the house more.
  • I saw this on a documentary (I think secret eaters or possible food unwrapped) was it also not the contrast between food colours and the plates?
  • Won't make the op sound like l she's insecure or looking for compliments at all.... I prob wouldn't do this on a first date if I was you.
  • Is your insecurity just your weight/appearance? Because (unless he's blind) he must have seen you and liked what he saw to ask you out! Every woman (and man) has imperfections the trick to loving yourself is just to acknowledge your not perfect and noone else is either. Focus on what you do that is good, I don't know you…
  • Onions fried in butter. Alot of it. Don't ask me why this works, I have no idea.
  • Lightly toasted Bagel thin (I'm in love with these) 40g smoked salmon, some parsley, egg whites scrambled made with light philladelphia wilted spinach 20g oats, 140g summer fruits, 100g greek yoghurt, 1/2 cup of almond milk, vanilla essence. Blend together. 20g fruit museli, 80g low fat greek yoghurt, 1 cup almond milk,…
  • My teleport device control panel.
  • I was suprised at this but I've recently discovered putting 20g of oats in smoothies oddly filling. Hot jello pudding mix - the whole 4 serving packet is under 150 cals depending on milk used. Protein fluff if you feel a binge coming will make you feel very very full and bloated. (Personally I like the egg white kind but…
  • I also like there stuff and wear for walks/some classes. On the useless side I only meant the built in support tops I've tried to be less than supportive and some of the clothes fall to reveal bits best left covered but to be fair to them I am an odd shape and I guess would work better on slender girls. The same with their…
  • New products do seem to cause a flare up especially on my neck and cheeks, sometimes it goes down again once your skin gets used to it. I've found the only way to reduce my acne is non medicated non spot related face wash, quitting smoking and drinking tons of water. Pills, acupuncture, creams, steroids, birth control all…
  • It doesn't hint a broken metabolism at all, if your swapping meals for shakes it probably signals hunger! Shakes are great but not the most filling thing.... Casein is supposed to be absorbed slower than whey but imo protein is protein. Why are you having so many shakes btw? At 2200 calories surely you can fit more protein…
