As you know I moved house two weeks ago today. On my first 'big shop' following the move I stocked the fridge with healthy food....Oh, and a set of digital scales! Weighed myself and was horrified to find that despite the exertions and stress of the run up to the move, the unhealthy fast food had more than taken it's toll, and I weighed more than I have ever weighed....and that includes my weight when 9 months pregnant!!!
That gave the massive imptus I needed. I have eaten really healthily, and my evening meal I am serving to myself on a side plate instead of my huge dinner plates. Weighed myself this morning (2 weeks to the day since I moved in)...and I have lost a staggering...5 and half pounds! It feels amazing...and I am completely committed!
So well done to everyone, lets keep it up! I feel I am totally on track now and can join in this thread properly....without being the imposter I have been so far LOL xxxxxx

Thanks Mushy...LOL I imagine I will fall off the wagon many many times yet...but am the right road now and thats what matters.
As has been said before, I need to NOT think of being on a diet...you lose it, you gain it back when you stop that diet.

Oh Elizajay, no justice there. We moving house in about 5 weeks after Alan has had his op. Also finished work after redundancy, and start new job just after we move. Enough stress at my time of life, Im 61 in July. But bet I be like you and not lose any weight. Michelle, I admit I not had any energy while I been missing my swims, going to get my cossie on and go for a swim lol annxxx
Anyone tried a wii programme? Useful? I was thinking about purchasing one for my daughter for her birthday. She is a wii fan and also putting on weight. So I thought it might be a helpful present and combines two imperfections. Not quite sure how to give it to her without her taking offence though. I ask myself, should I be direct or pussyfoot around the subject?

Hi Cadbury, Im sure you have the will power to go it alone, you seem very motivated with your cycling, walking etc. Good luck,and let us know how much you lose lol Ann xxx, JRK just give the wii to your daughter, telling her you buying it her cause you think she fat will take all the pleasure out of the gift, and ensure it stays in the box. They are very good, and if you give her a selection of games and not just the keep fit type, you will not need to give her the impression its bought for her weight. I am sure she is probably aware if she has a weight problem and will deal with it in her own way. lol Annxxx
I have noticed this week by not going to the gym though how little energy I have... strange but when I attend 3 times a week although I feel shattered after the class I always have a little excess energy but by not attending this week I feel really tired.
I just watched a programme on telly and they said that when you excercise you are also giving your Brain a work out. So obviously because you did not excercise last week your brain as well as your body felt a bit sluggish.
Well done on losing 5.5 pounds. Keep it going and get that fourth wheel fixed on your wagon. That way you will not fall of

Thanks but I got cold feet! I ask myself now, where does cold feet come from?
I know, it has nothing to do with losing weight, but seeing as you asked...
No one seems to know exactly where the expression came from, but some suggest it may have something to do with the military, in that soldiers were able to exempt themselves from battle by complaining that their feet were frozen.
Another theory is that it dates back to the 1800s when the term was a reference to being poor - as in so poor that one couldn't afford a pair of shoes, hence having cold feet. From there we move to 1862 where, in a German novel a card player withdraws from a game stating that he has 'cold feet' (as in no money), when in reality he had lost his nerve. Eventually, from that, the expression came to mean backing our of a risky situation whatever excuse was given.
So now you know!!!
PS, I still haven't replaced the battery in my bathroom scales so I have no idea whether I'm losing any weight or not, but my jeans do feel a little looser!!
