Default Hello from One Fat Chick in England # 9

Hello everyone - OMG - the ninth thread... and they are moving on so fast nowadays.

I've just been reading over some of the other threads. Do you think we ought to start a thread for recommending products, dieting tips, etc, etc. Sort of like a 'Which' for dieting stuff????

Wow #9 already!!!

Yesterday I did something silly (again I hear you cry) I got on the scales (not my official weigh in day until Tuesday but I've been v.v. good recently) and I had got down to 17.4 - a whole stone off - yippee I cried, I got on my other set of scales (yes I have 2!!) and they said the same - I was on cloud nine, I know your sensing a but coming up.... But today I had gained the 3lbs back - WHY I have been hateful all day because I know there is no way on this earth that I could have gained 3lbs!! it just isn't possible, yesterday I had about 1,400 caolories and the day before the same or less!!!!!!!! I don't think it could be TOM, because as most of you know, I don't really get TOM more like TOY!!! Anyway tonight I went to MIL for dinner and pigged out I ate a huge chicken salad, buttered bread, sausages, new potatoes in butter, a cream egg, 2 slices of battenburg, the list goes on.........why, why, why, etc

The thread sounds like a good idea Sarah and well done on getting out of being a bridesmaid

Oh - Delaney - poor you! Its your PCOS thats causing your weight to fluctuate - it used to do that to me. Basically with PCOS your hormone levels are all shot to **** - so your hormones are telling your body that it is nearly TOM even when its not. I could gain or lose 5lbs in a day, but it usually reverts back to normal within 24 hours or so. Have you noticed that your ankles and/or wrists (or even your face) are slightly puffy? Perhaps you might be suffering with other TOM symptoms - tender boobs, cravings, etc.

Don't worry about it too much - I know its not fair but the more weight you lose the less you will be likely to have weight fluctuations.

Your eating binge was probably caused by a mixture of being miserable about the 3lbs AND the PCOS flooding your system with TOM type hormones - try to put yesterday behind you and start afresh this morning. You can do it - we are all here to help you. I lived with PCOS for over 20 years so if you want a shoulder to cry on.....

Now I haven't got to wear that awful Jane Austin type frock and hat (!) I have got to find something to wear for this wedding in July.... so in the middle of this week's Whats On TV there is a pull out Simply Be mini-brochure - which only deals in sizes 16-30. I was browsing through it and thought they had some nice stuff - then it occurred to me that while one of the models is a possibly a size 16, most of the clothes are modelled on women who are nearer a size 12! Its a shame they couldn't find larger models so we can actually get a good idea of how the clothes are likely to look on us, surely there must be some out there somewhere.

I hate hats of any shape or description. Somehow I have just got the wrong shaped face for a hat and when I do have to wear one I always feel like I am still wearing it for a couple of hours after I have taken it off.

OK - I have started off a new thread for product recommendations (or any kind of recommendations)... here's a link

Do you get a full week for half term down South ? My kids were off Thursday & Friday for in-service days and today is a half term holiday then they are back at school tomorrow - thank goodness normality will reign.

Been at the dentist this morning - was bad planning as the boys had to come with me & I was getting root treatment done & I am not very brave . But the worse bit is all done now - just got to go get my crown fitted next week. All this because half of my tooth fell out half way down a hill at New Year. Even worse it's going to cost 150. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have done really well with my eating all weekend. On Saturday night we had friends over and I stuck to my plan of one vodka one soft drink one vodka one soft drink. I am going away with my friend & kids in April & she couldn't believe how little I drank - the pair of us are well known for demolishing all of a 3 litre box of wine & some more once we get started putting the world to rights - not anymore - I have to make some changes. Anyway Linda said she is going to buy me one bottle of vodka while we are away at it will last me the whole week - some how I think not - but you never know.

Worked out everyday over the weekend. On Saturday I fixed up the old telly in our room and did 40 minutes of my areobics video. Then on Sunday we went for a walk at a reservior, up a track and down a muddy path. We all had a good time, but I got stuck on the mud, stinky bog mud inside my boots and up my trouser legs
Trust me.

Then this morning I got up early and did my Tae Bo vid again. It was a bit easier this week but I still struggled. Had to open the windows when I'd finished as they were all steamed up - I had been doing Tae Bo honest

Need to go fill my glass up. I'm drinking water out of a John Smiths extra smooth pint glass, through a barbie pink straw - dead classy me

Melissa it was Carron reservoir, which is near to Stirling, up the back roads & by a big dam ??? Very pretty - we didn't walk all the way round as we had the kids, but we have done it all before.

oh no nobodies scales are moving despite our cut backs on the booze - suddenly I'm not looking forward to my weigh in tomorrow. I thought cutting out the alcohol would make a difference to our weights - shows what I know. Well I'll find out tomorrow

Veggie where are you going with the black wooly hat & the backpack? If you're off back packing round Europe wait for me - I can be with you by tea time.....

Me too! I want to back pack round Europe as well!!!!! I can make Cumbria by mid evening!!!

Cutting back on the booze has got to work when you think that the average pub measure of wine has got about 90-100 cals in it and who sticks to pub measurements at home? I've got some really nice ENORMOUS wine glasses which I try and kid myself contains only a normal wine glass full - trouble is you only get 4 glasses out of a 75cl bottle.

Cutting right back on wine (or any booze) has got to be the hardest thing about dieting for me.... sob! Oh - and of course Kevin stuffing his face with white chocolate creme eggs.

White Chocolate Creme Eggs - I am not a chocolate fan but they sound lovely.

How come it's started raining when Ray is due in for work & I can go for my walk

My back pack is old & can hold my library books or swimming stuff - don't think either would be that useful half way round the world.
