Jane I was 12 stone 6 and I've lost 2 stone since x mas, I haven't lost any real weight in 2 or so months, I'm 10 stone 5 now. I'm 5 foot 4.5. It was hard work and harder work lies ahead as I'm nit shifting the last stone. I did a diy job I didn't go to weight watchers. I'm happy enough with my body but wish the belly was flatter. I'm still walking and ran 1 k and walked 5.5 k yesterday. I'm at kickboxing tomorrow. It's not just about diet once you lose the 1st stone oR your first dress size you really do feel much better.
Pm me if you need support or motivation. And post up before and after pics, mine are on already...
Jane I'm considering joining WW; I'd love to get a stone or so off. Well I'd lose two stone if I could but I'll try the stone for now. We can motivate each other!
i need more motivation to lose weight!
I just threw out a heap of clothes that have become too big on me but i stil have a bit more to go!
I could lose weight, but I totally love eating.
I haven't actually gone back to WW, I'm thinking about it though. I don't know if I can afford it. I know it's only a tenner but then when you consider the missed week fee is €5 and I'd be likely to miss meetings with visiting bf etc. I only went for about a 30 minute walk today, I might go again later and I'll have to get my bike fixed up too. At the moment I'm sort of counting points. I'm still using the old points system. I'm just making sure to eat 3 meals a day, drink lots of water and get some exercise.
My belly is my problem really because I'm happy enough with the rest of my body. As I said before all my excess weight is around my middle. Hopefully my boobs won't disappear..
Thanks so much for the encouragement guys, I really appreciate it. I've said that I'm going to lose weight countless times. I really have to do it because my confidence really is at rock bottom at the moment.
Today was tough. Instead of our usual "tea?" emails i wanted to write "jax?"
I've lost a certain amount of weight in the last couple of years with the cycling but am nowhere near my 'ideal' weight. I still have a significant belly (though I can flatten it (momentarily) at will). However, I'm doing serious distance on the bike at a decent effort and I'm currently well fit and energetic. I'm not looking at numbers or scales, just happy to be active and able to look in the mirror without feeling guilty...
Hope you did...
Bluewolf....€140 for a massage with hot oil?
Was there a fine Italian bit of stuff heating the oil on his body??
That is INSANE!!! And saying the the massage includes feet and scalp?? THEY'RE PART OF YOUR BODY, THEY'RE MEANT TO BE INCLUDED!!!!
That's crazy money. I do a full hot stone with hot oil massage for half that...come to me next time, I'll make it all spa-like by.....erm....massaging you in the bathroom....or outside next to the paddling pool or.....something
Oh and on the EWCM....I dunno what ye're getting freaked out over, it happens everyone around ovulation Well, not you Albection/awec/cdaly/krudler
Yeah that's what we thought too the only reason we got it was for that 3hour yoke. They had a one hour full body for 85 shoulda got that
left a bad review on tripadvisor for them
Decided instead of baking to go for a walk, just mapped it online and apparently twas 8km! Feeling fairly happy with that since I did a 7km one yesterday with a friend of mine. All the hard work will be wasted seeing as I'm having a Lennoxes dinner, but this way I can view it as having earned it - and it got me out of the house and less wanting to die of boredom!
Jane I'm the same height as you and am just under ten and a half stone, and am a size 10 - according to the BMI thing I need to lose two stone and I think thats too small...
Wah, everybody else comes home from work and I start getting ready to go to work.
Thank god for the eye candy who sits at the desk opposite mine. Prime perving position.
I'm having trouble with this knitting now. I was going to post in the knitting super-thread over in the Arts & Crafts forum but nobody has posted in 4 months so I don't know if that'll be successful. Can't really find what I'm looking for anywhere online. Wah.
I think I'll head off for another walk.. I only did about 1km today, might see if I can do 2 more. Thanks for the motivation!
Yeah I don't think I'm going to go by that. I think if I could get to between 10 and 10 and a half stone I'd look and feel so much better.
There's a thread here about them - http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showthread.php?p=78319344
