Please be aware that the body does not need extra supplements of chicken wings. Humans obtain sufficient flight power from easyJet, British Airways etc. Problem is that we get addicted to queuing in airports. It is an acceptable recreational drug but it destroys human health slowly, causing short tempers, irritability, high blood pressure and sore feet, disrupting normal brain function (and therein often the inability to think sensibly when purchasing items at the Duty Free).
Like nicotine, there should be a health warning and a higher tax levy on chicken wings, I reckon.
Treat all feathers with some caution!
Ouch, oooh, aggh, stoppit Viv, I was only joking

So that's what I have been doing wrong all these years then!!
(mind you I would rather be slim and brain dead than fat and clever and be well on the way to being diabetic with a caffeine addiction to boot.
I know I am going to get flack for this one!!

Well ladys these posts made me laugh, and laughing if done right can exercise all your muscles from face to your toes, jrk keep your posts coming they sure make me gasp in amazement at your knowledge lol Ann xxx
Oh Angela, you sure know how to win friends and influence people. I think sometimes it is better to keep your opinions to your self, I have looked after people who unfortuatley are brain dead through accidents illnesses etc, and believe me you would not like to be in those poor souls position, and I dont know what there families would think of you, as for me, in future I will just ignore your posts, malcy, dont give up, you will always get support off most of us who post on here. I have stayed the same as I have had a wonderful weekend at the lakes and have risked getting all kinds of terrible things happening to me, but losing my sense of humour wont be one of them. Good luck to all this week at your weigh ins. LOL Ann xxxx

All I will say about the above comment made, may I suggest if you don't intend on offering anything constructive to this topic, then please don't reply to it.
You clearly don't have any issues with your weight (but some of us have)a nd this topic is designed to offer support to those who are trying at least (and yes with some humour along the way), don't get me wrong Angela some of your replies have been constructive but the most recent which I'm sure other posters will agree with, is quite frankly rude and no doubt upsetting to others.
You may feel your blaze comment is fine, I beg to differ.
So again if you feel that the only constructive comment you can make on this subject is like the one you have made above, then I suggest you don't bother.
I was going to stay quiet, wondering if I was just being oversensitive, but as I'm not alone...
My father in law, who has always been slim, doesn't drink coffee, is a non smoker who has never drunk to excess and has always enjoyed a healthy diet is now wasting away in a home, suffering severe dementia thanks to Parkinsons disease. Not quite 'brain dead', but with very few and limited moments of lucidity. He's been getting progressively worse for over 3 years now. It's pitiful and heartbreaking to see him and the other residents in this condition. I sincerely hope you never find yourself or your loved ones in such a tragic and incurable situation Angela.
Like Ann I'll just ignore your comments in future, your latest offering is nothing short of spiteful, and your closing comment proves you expected it would upset people. Well done, you were right.
A healthy lifestyle although reducing the risks is no guarantee of a healthy body and mind. Best of luck to all who're trying to tip the balance in their favour, and I hope the scales are smiling at you this week

My last post was something which I knew would get your attention.
Don't you realise that some of you (no one in particular) are still not grasping the obvious, you will not keep the weight off that you manage to lose unless you change your eating habits for life.
All this dieting and weighing in and spending money on diet clubs will still be happening next year too.
I have lived with diabetes for many years, my mother died after being in a diabetes coma for 6 months when she was only 5 years older than I am now. My sister has had type 1 diabetes for 35 years (not related to food) so I do understand how sugar has an impact on your health.
In my own way I am trying to make you see that unless you take what you are trying to do a bit more seriously the next thing you could end up with is type 2 diabetes,

I can see you are clearly trying to use a shock tactic to make us all on this topic more aware of our eating habits and I will repeat again you are only reiterating to us what we know already!!!
I'm sure the posters aren't that stupid not to understand what can happen if you continue living a sedentary lifestyle with bad eating habits... of course we all know the implications.
But Angela I get the impression you think you are preaching to a bunch of 40+ stone, bed ridden morbidly obese people!!! The fact is that we are probably all overweight to some extent, and yes some more than others and I will be the first to hold my head up and say yes I am overweight by a stone and my BMI is 27.2. I eat healthy, I attend the gym and yes I have the occassional sin, I understand the concepts of healthy eating but I also understand that there is nothing wrong with having a treat now and again.
Now you might be happy living on pulses and water and rabbit food, but for some of us the mere thought of that makes us dizzy with hunger and I will repeat again what most Doctors again will say, as long as you combine your eating with good old fashioned exercise then allowing yourself some kind of indulgence whether it be a chocolate bar or a sugar loaded drink is fine, although make sure it's in moderation.
Remember Angela we are all trying to change eating/drinking habits that we have become accustomed to for years, for some it's easy, others not so.
So please rather than put us down at every available opportunity please by all means offer support but in a less hurtful and offending way.

Pulses, water and rabbit food. I think not. Where did that impression come from. Anyway this is not about me, it's about a healthier lifestyle.
Again I have to defend myself.
This thread is about people who want to lose weight and I assume not having to do it all again next year.
I am not putting anyone down just trying to get through the fact that dieting is useless.
Healthy eating, that's everything in moderation and not eating more of it than your body needs.
Wether you want to lose a couple of pounds or several stone makes no difference.
