Hi everyone,

Just coming in for my usual sporadic post. :D I've been doing pretty poorly on the eating front (like that full size chocolate bar and half a bag of chips in front of the TV last night) but have been doing well on the exercise front, so we're sitting at neutral at the moment. Today is the day I push it over into the positive (or negative if you think about pounds to lose! -1,-2,-3, and so on.)

Just been sitting here reading all the posts and feeling so proud of you all for keeping on and taking it one day at a time. We will do it!

Raff- May you have a bulkhead seat and free drinks all the way to Paris baby!

Everyone...take care, have a great weekend!

Hi Lorraine, keep up with the exercise, you're doing well :)

I've just hopped on the scales and I'm 2lbs down, so my weight loss tracker is once again on the move ... in the right direction! Let's hope I can keep it up!! :^:


ecchs 03-15-2005 12:13 AM

Had a really good day in the exercise and eating department. Hoping tomorrow I can continue the trend. It's so frustrating to undo all the hard work in a day's worth of binge. Here's to CONSISTENCY! *ching*


NicoleNYC 03-15-2005 01:06 PM

Am once again in allergy ****. Ahh, spring. Grrr.

Will catch up more when not medicated to the gills.

Jo, your friend will get over it. It sucks for her that you had to back out BUT you had to. That's the way it is. She may pout for now, but she'll come around with a little distance. Till then, study hard and make us proud!


Fat in Hong Kong 03-16-2005 01:58 AM

Lorraine, yes it's so easy to undo all the hard work in a day's worth of binge, how true that is!! Hope you managed to stay on track.

Brandy, sorry to hear those allergies are troubling you again ... hope you feel better soon.

I've been off work sick for a couple of days this week with a very upset tummy ... was convinced it was something I'd eaten but there have been quite a few others off with the same sort of thing, so who knows? :( Feeling much better today though. Have managed to stay pretty much on track foodwise ... basically haven't felt much like eating ... if that were only the case ALL the time!! :lol: But I haven't felt like doing exercise either, so no walking so far this week, which obviously isn't good! :mad: And I feel so exhausted due to lack of sleep that I really don't feel up to doing any today either. Hopefully tomorrow I'll feel more energetic! :^:


NicoleNYC 03-20-2005 03:53 PM

Nichola, hope you are feeling better by now.

I think I'm at the end of this allergy misery for now. Blah. It's such a drag! But I must admit, it's not nearly as bad as when I was younger so I should not complain too much.

I'm still tracking points and tomorrow (provided the sinuses have stopped throbbing) I plan to pick back up with my beloved WATP. Yay. Terrified of getting hear the scales.

Hope all is well with you guys!


ecchs 03-24-2005 03:14 AM

Uh oh...where did everyone go? Hope you're all well ladies...As for me, I'm fatter than ever. Well, actually, not EVER, but getting close. It has got to STOP. Here. NOW.


Fat in Hong Kong 03-24-2005 03:37 AM

Lorraine, I'm still around but had a very busy week at work as it's the end of term today. I'm also up to my eyes with ironing as we are going on hols to Singapore on Saturday, and my son, Tom, is flying off to Sri Lanka tomorrow on tour with the Hong Kong Under 16's Rugby team ... He had to go through a lot of intensive training to get into the squad so were really proud of him.

You are not alone ... I am also fatter than ever (almost)! Had a mammoth weekend ... it was the Hong Kong Rugby 7's World Cup which is a 3 day event Fri-Sun ... and just about every expat in Hong Kong attends (if they can get tickets!) and people come from all over the globe. It's a fantastic weekend (even for those who don't much like rugby). Consequently, I spent the whole three days doing this :cbg: :jeno: :mcd: ... this :cheers: ... and this :cp: :cheer: Needless to say I've never felt so uncomfortable!! I dread getting on the scales ... my clothes are enough to tell me I've gained lbs!!!!!

As we're off on holiday this weekend seems pretty pointless trying to get myself back on track now ... but wait until I come back!!! This have simply got to change!!!!

I'll catch up with you all when I get back from Sing! :wave:

Hello Ladies! I've been a bad "fatchick". Haven't been reading the posts nor taken the time to write. But you all have been on my mind. While doing dishes I'll think, "Gotta get on the 3FC site and see how they are doing." and the same when I'm cleaning or fatzing around. Well here I am; better late than never.

First off I'd like to congratulate the losers and maintainers. I gained back the 5 that I lost so I'm back to 325lb again. My God, I can't believe that number. :o

I went to Paris last week for a mini-vaca and it was wonderful. 100 times better than I expected. The food was fresh and fabulous, not like the crap we have in America (no offense to the Americans). Even their processed foods taste better than ours. I spend 1/2 my time just tasting the foods. While I was waiting for the Metro I would stop by a vending machine and taste the Pepsi, Lipton Iced Tea, Water and get a Coke at a restaurant. Their soda has less carbonation and is not as sweet. Their Lipton doesn't have an after taste like it was made with shitty tea leaves. Bottom line even there sweet stuff is not as heavy and sweet as ours. I had tartar with fries and the fries didn't taste heavy or fried. How'd they do that? And everyone is thin there, a little too thin if you ask me. No one has an *** or tits. They all look like 12 year old boys wearing Chanel and Armani. But that's my just my .2 cents.

So it's good to be home except for the high fructose corn syrup and the 9000 ingredients that are put into our food that don't need to be there. And it's back to drawing board for me with my foodplan. I'm going to give it another try. I have made changes by ensuring that I eat cheese and protein during the day and I have added some vegetables here and there. I'm getting there...slowly.

Hi Girls,

What's happened to everyone??? Just got back from Singapore and expected lots and lots of posts to catch up on ... but nothing??

Hope it's just that you're all too busy with your diet & exercise routines!! :D

Raff, glad you had a great time in Paris ... have you managed to get back on track since you've been back?

We enjoyed Singapore but must confess that it's nice to be back in Hong Kong ... never thought I'd say that but it's true :)

I've just hopped on the scales and I'm shocked to say that I haven't really gained any weight whilst away, still hovering around 179lbs, which is a miracle considering the amount of food I've eaten ... huge buffet breakfasts every day etc!!!! :o Perhaps it was the amount of walking we did whilst there ... my feet are killing me!!!

Well, it's definitely back to the drawing board for me. I'm feeling really uncomfortable. Must confess that being in Singapore and seeing all the skinny Asian beauties (pretty much the same as Hong Kong but there seemed to be more of them!!), I felt really old and frumpy. None of my clothes fitted me properly and I felt really self concious of the fact that I'm so overweight. If I was a "normal" size I would have had such a great time trying on all the wonderful clothes that I can't get in Hong Kong. As it was Sophie, my daughter, had a field day!! She's had so many new clothes and shoes. I know the only way I'm going to get any is to lose weight so that all my clothes are too big!!

I'm not wasting anymore time ... I start TODAY!!!! ... Who's joining me?


NicoleNYC 04-01-2005 12:25 PM

Hi girls!

Very quick one for me - I've been out of commission with back problems so that's why you've not heard from me. I didn't really "do" anything, I just woke up one day and couldn't move and it continued to get worse through out the day? Whow knows. I am too young for this - it was the trying to pass out, popping out in cold sweat, seeing stars variety of pain and it SUCKED. Really - I am just too young for this! I'm on the mend now but not 100% but I must say, nothing motivates like pain. From what I can read (in the five minutes at a time I can stand to sit here and reasearch) the two biggest contributing factors to "mystery" back pain are being overweight and inactive. Ding Ding Ding! I think we have a winner. Need I say my diet has been exemplary since reading that? And as soon as I can walk without wincing, I'm going to WATP my butt off. Seriously, if this is where my life is headed, I have a problem. So I'm very much turning things around here.

As for you guys, glad Paris and Singapore were fun - am very very pea green with envy here!

Take care and have a great weekend, everyone!

Brandy, sorry to hear about your back problems, hope you recover quickly :grouphug: I know what you mean though ... I tend to have aches and pains quite often and I'm certain that they are caused by the fact that I'm putting unnecessary strain on my poor body due to being overweight. I often have back pain and some mornings it's a struggle to get out of bed. My knees too give me pain and this simply isn't good if I want to seriously get into walking. I know you're younger than I am, but at 42, I still shouldn't be feeling like an old woman. I look at some of my friends (all around the same age) and they all look years younger than I do ... all slim and active ... I don't want to be the old one anymore.

We had an email yesterday from our friends in the UK who were going to visit last year but couldn't make it ... they have said that they would like to visit this summer ... July or August ... OMG!!! My friend has got THE BODY to die for!!!!! It will be nearly 2 years since I last saw them and in that time guess what ... my body is even bigger!!!!! I really can't let them see me like this, I feel so ashamed that I've let myself go so much over the past few years. I feel so sad when I think back to how I used to look after myself ... diet, exercise, makeup, hair, clothes ... what the **** happened to me?!!!! Well for me, this is definitely the push that I need to get up off my big fat you know what and finally do something about it. I've got at least 4 months to get myself into shape. If I can average 1-2lbs (preferably 2!!) per week, I should be well on my way to my goal ... now that's not unrealistic is it? 8lbs each month would be great, but I'd still be happy with 5-6lbs a month.

You heard it here first ... Nichola is on a mission!! :)

NicoleNYC 04-03-2005 01:32 AM

I feel so sad when I think back to how I used to look after myself ... diet, exercise, makeup, hair, clothes ... what the **** happened to me?!!!!


Yes! I know that thought! I HAVE HAD THAT THOUGHT!!!

Every now and then I realize that there are some things I just never let myself do in the past, things I didn't even THINK about - I just didn't do them. And now they are part of my day to day life! WHAT HAPPENED?!?! I think I've been working too hard on trying to answer that question and not working hard enough on just making changes. I got lazy. I got comfortabel. THAT'S what happened. It's not any deeper than that.

I guess I just need to muster up a little PRIDE and hold myself to a higher standard. And with this back problem to deal with (and having found out that i'm justthisside of having high blood pressure), I feel very very compelled to get my shi...I mean, self together.

We should start a whole new thread with our new name. We need a new and fresh start for spring. I need to spring clean my life as much as I need to spring clean my home.

Up for it? :flow1:

RaffaellaBella 04-03-2005 10:59 AM

Hello Ladies! Looks like we are all motivated now for different reasons. But we are all agreeing on one thing: we're tired and we need to take care of ourselves.

Since I came back from Paris I lost 7lbs because I've started eating the way the French do. I no longer have a taste for the highly processed American foods. I've added fruits, vegetables, and protein to my diet. I'm eating smaller portions as well. On the whole it's going well. I sometimes fall into habit and grab a bigger plate or portion but then I remember. It's hard work changing my eating style and habits but I'm going to continue because I have no other choice. I'm tired of being 2x my normal size.

My husband is leaving for Yemen today. I'm excited for him but sad for me because I will not see him for a month. He hasn't seen his family for 14 years. His brothers and sisters were little when he left. Now they are all grown. I'm taking him to Kennedy Airport later. His friend is coming as well so I can't get too emotional when I say goodbye. :(

I'll talk to you all soon. And once again, I am so happy that we are all starting fresh. Power to the chickies! :strong:


ecchs 04-04-2005 06:09 PM

How about "Friends First" like Jo? had suggested before. Change is as good as a rest as far as I'm concerned!
