UBEE - I have been starting to change most of my recipes to either dairy free or gluten free .. Im loving using Almond Meal .. its a little more pricey but its got the most incredible texture ... Now that I have the lemon flavour right I will start playing with the other ingredients - mainly the sugar & the flour used .. already make them dairy free ... Im leaning a little more towards the lemon flour .. I do us rice flour as well but prefer the texture and taste of the Almond range lol.
I was quite small as a child, it wasn't until I was about 9 that the weight started piling on. My mother signed me up for WW when I was 12 ... I was bulimic at about 16/17 .. and even now its a thought I do battle after I have a binge instead of just accepting what I have done and try to work out the triggers. But I don't remember what it was like to be small .. so my only memories are of being a big girl, bigger than my friends and family .. although my brother is big too.

Betsy welcome on in and no problem if you don't want to post .. I will try to remember to keep checking back on your post to see your updates so I can keep the records up to date and know you are still around .. but please pop up occasionally just to let us know you are doing ok

TO ALL MOTHERS - HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!! Hope you have a lovely day

Had a busy day at work yesterday .. in my PJs lol .. a quick change and out to a lovely Mothers Day dinner (day before but that is fine lol) ... I had a wonderful meal .. probably the biggest and most indulgent meal I have had since my wedding day last December lol .. and I enjoyed every mouthful ... started with a small bowl of cream of pumpkin soup (I didn't have the bread though), then I had seared chicken breast (lol .. nothing unusual then lol) with carrots, broccoli, cauliflower and a few pieces of roasted potato ... and then I had a bread & butter pudding!! OMG so nice lol .. but I didn't have the cream or custard with the pudding, just a small scoop of the hand churned vanilla bean ice cream. Oh and I had 2 glasses of wine!! Yep .. definitely a calorie blow out I think .. but will make it up over the week .. besides I was on the go all day moving boxes, picking up clothes to rehang etc and didn't stop all day ... and I was on the go most of today too .. so I think I have worn off a bit of that meal lol

Just going to relax for the evening now .. full day on my own at work tomorrow so no breaks again .. and then an extra early start on Tuesday because there is a shop change around to get done .. full day Wednesday .. and apparently I have Thurs & Fri off ... but as that tends to change I will just wait and see lol ..

Catch up later peeps

So much for not posting!

Ubee, I was tall and thin right up until I left for college. I was very active, went to a high school that was 6 stories tall if you counted the sub basements where the girls' PE was held, and we went up and down the stairs to class. In college, I gained the requisite Freshman 20. And once I got married and was doing the cooking......and quickly realized that perhaps I hadn't made the best marriage partner choice in the world, I started gaining weight. I lost about a hundred pounds in my early 30s and kept it off for 5 years. But I was still 60-70 pounds heavier than in high school. And then it just went to **** in a handbasket. I've been over 300 pounds now since 1990. I honestly think that getting below 300 will be as big a milestone for me as anything else on this journey.

I'm going to post this for Ubee first so I don't make my post too long.

Ubee, the distance for 10,000 steps varies according to height/stride. I use this chart which you can also find by searching how many steps per mile. It seems to be pretty close to what FitBit uses. Keep in mind that our strides are different though. For example. I am about 5'6", but according to my GPS app, I walk further than the FitBit app says I do in mileage (based on steps) so I have longer strides than average... I use the lower estimate for my calculations just to know that I am actually doing more.

Height - Steps per Mile
4'10" - 2,601
4'11" - 2,557
5'0" - 2,514
5'1" - 2,473
5'2" - 2,433
5'3" - 2,395
5'4" - 2,357
5'5" - 2,321
5'6" - 2,286
5'7" - 2,252
5'8" - 2,218
5'9" - 2,186
5'10" - 2,155
5'11" - 2,125
6'0" - 2,095
6'1" - 2,067
6'2" - 2,039
6'3" - 2,011
6'4" - 1,985

Welcome Ali! You are doing fantastic!!!

Stephanie, Congrats on losing 2 lbs! Woohoo! I have always wanted to go to New Zealand. I bet it is beautiful. They have some cheap pedometers out there. I was looking for a backup this weekend because it is the only thing that keeps me moving...The $15 ones look pretty fancy these days. I miss wearing my regular watch and with the heat starting, I don't know if I want to keep plastic on my wrist all summer.

Nightkatt, yay on the 1.6! Ack on the cupcake making. I'm doing sugar free and I have been eyeing them in the grocery store lately and with my birthday coming up, that is first on my list. Better than eating a whole cake and getting sick, I say!

Ubee, I have been overweight all of my life. I was born at almost 10 lbs and I only remember being thin for about a second when I was 12 (after my first official diet at 11).

Betsy, welcome! You can do it!!!

Ubee, I was a small child until teenage years(around 12), considered myself overweight when I was around 15. I guess you could say I was "thick" but wasn't as noticeable due to my height. I guess I've been obese for the last 10 years. It became noticeable when I was around 24 and my butt started poking out too much to my Mom :P

Ubee - I've been overweight my whole life. I briefly remember being normal size when I was 4 any time after that I've been chubby, fat, overweight, or obese. I'm 27 now. I wish I could blame my weight gain on anything other than myself but I love food. I would sneak Debbie cakes when my mom said I couldn't have anymore. I'd spend all my allowance on junk food. I have a very unhealthy relationship with food and I always have.

Adding to Ubee's question about what size we've been all of our lives, how many of us come from families where there was a history of being overweight? When I look at both sides of the family, there's definitely a genetic element there of having a natural tendency to be overweight. I know we can't blame it all on genes as we still make the eating decisions, but they sure play a role!

My parents were both overweight -- my dad was morbidly obese and my mom was in the plump stage. Both dieted multiple times, would lose the weight, and inevitably gain it back after they went back to "normal." Both grandmothers were heavy as well.

Betsy both my parents were overweight. As for grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, siblings... we are all over the place no rhyme or reason to my family!
Silent Get posting. I miss you!
Sue I'll be watching for your numbers next week. Birthdays can be trouble.
Watchout Little Debbie was my best friend. You sound so much like me with that unhealthy relationship with food.
Gurl glad you are working on it while you are still young!
Easily I love how you were thin for a second! I wish I could be thin for 10 minutes every week to motivate me. Just to know what it is like... Thanks for the chart. That is really interesting.
Ali nice loss! Love the airhose comment!
Betsy we can gain when life is good BUT I think we really pile it on when life stinks.
Katt no wonder you lose so much, you are crazy busy. Dumb question, what is all in lemon flour? I can not find any info on it.
I am feeling motivated!!!!!

Just a quick check-in.

Happy belated Mother's Day to the mothers out there!

My family went out to dinner to celebrate (as we usually do...) and they chose Claim Jumper. I planned ahead and ordered a reasonably good choice and stayed within my daily points/calories.

WELCOME to Betsy & gurlnextgen! Glad you have joined us.

CONGRATULATIONS Nightkatt, Ali & Ubee on your GREAT losses!

Hang in there Silent & wannaskipandlaugh... it's a new week and a fresh start!

Ubee: My weight has been an issue since elementary school, so as long as I can remember. I think my well-meaning family might have made it worse by offering me money and other stuff to lose weight as young as that. I know it wasn't meant maliciously because the person was just trying to be supportive and didn't want me to live the life they were living (they are overweight and have struggled with their weight for a very long time). It does seem to run in my family, at least on one side.

Have a great day everyone!
