Re: Weight loss group 2012

Well done Mick, keep it going. Welcome Mrs F, don't be ashamed of your weight, it took a lifetime to get there and it won't go off overnight. As someone who was 28 st and didn't feel bad about it you've got nothing on me. If you don't want to declare a weight that's cool, you will still get help and...

Re: Up or down?

THE diffinitive answer is this. From My front door in (h)Artlepool going to Peterlee, Sunderland, Newcastle is going north and as such we are hardy northerners with cold newcastle brown ale for beer. Going to Middlesborough, Redcar, York etc is going south and we are likely to chance across those so...

Re: Weight loss group 2012

Edit: I gotta say, I noticed this as well.. how well I look in recent days... with my longer hair with the beanie hat (when you see me Al - you gonna say Hippy, I know you will lol) and I feel more upbeat about the figure and don't feel "big" as such. If these pounds drop off - my broad s...

Re: Weight loss group 2012

I don't [or didn't] have one, an excuse that is. It's the same when we have a lot of meat as well so our plate is 3/4 veg, sometimes up to 7 d...

Re: Weight loss group 2012

This weeks goal is to continue with the walking but also looking at food labels in the shops. We tend to just pick up food that we like the look of from supermarkets. What we should be doing is making a meal plan and then a shopping list and only buying that shopping. Obviously if we are buying a we...

Re: Weight loss group 2012

Well done Bonnie for rejoining the ish loss. I am not even going to presume I know enough to offer advice on your running. Msybe you could give the group a few tips after your race which will hopefully see the rest of us walking faster then running a bit. The reason I say after the race is to give y...

There wouldn't be a jack russel bothering my hens the next day believe me. Words can not solve the problem. Once a dog, any dog gets the taste of flesh then the trouble is there for the next time.

Re: Weight loss group 2012

Welcome aboard eco Mick. Are you going to declare your weight on the list or do you want me to do it. You can always up the effort assuming you do it in accordance with medical advice et al. If you use the delivery truck can you find a space in it for your bike? If so when you take your enforced sto...

I'm going to have a wood fired oven built in the garden around March as an alternative cooking source. My design for this will include pipes in the build that will fill an indirect copper boiler in the garage [ the greenhouse is against the end wall of the garage] The pipes will Run through the gree...

Re: Weight loss group 2012

The goal to focus on this week is walking Do not do anything that is going to hurt you. If like me 50m is all you can do then that's fine. if you are a marathon runner do a bit more. Things to look out for are Distance. You can plot a route on http://www.goodrunguide.co.uk/ or any of the other rout...

Re: Weight loss group 2012

I have sugessted that we weigh in every Sunday as the 1st of Jan is on a Sunday. The idea behind that is that we focus on the day of weigh in and thus focus all week as opposed to weigh in when we want because if we weigh in when we want we are more likely to put weight on but by not weighing in eac...
