    top tip on birth control and mood swings - get yourself on the mirena coil or the implanon implant. i have a form of bipolar disorder and the mood swings that came with PMS compounded my other ones dreadfully. i tried tri-cycling my pill to minimise the highs and lows and then the depo jab (gained a lot of weight on that though), but the mirena coil was a clear winner. it's worth the minimal discomfort of insertion for 5 years of protection and the trickle of hormones kept me at a steady ebb and flow rather than super highs and lows. i didn't notice any weight gain at all (i lost weight as i came off depo to be on the coil) and after a while my periods stopped completely. i didn't get much in the way of TOTM weight gain after that either, no more than the 2lb you fluctuate daily, anyway.

    try not to punish yourself for the gain, either - it could be anything from water retention to a change in how the scales were calibrated, and if you cut back on calories too severely you will trigger the starvation mode "OMG MUST HOARD ALL CALORIES!" and make things worse!

    best of luck getting your new purchases all built up and stocked, sounds liberating!

    Hello everyone!

    Hope your Monday is paving a good path for the week!! It's been unusually sunny up my way today but still quite nippy outside too.

    Today's feast:


    B - Banana and strawberries smoothie
    236
    L - Wholemeal toast with baked beans + cheese 269
    D - Slow-cooked beef casserole with rice
    578

    Others: 2 litres water, orange juice at 110cal
    Exercise: 40 min walk to work.


    Total calories: 1,193

    That leaves me a few hundred to have a cuppa and a biccie later on .

    I know I usually do Dance Central and I had recently started doing a 30 min fat-burning/muscle workout too but today all I can manage exercise-wise is my walk to work - which I did this morning. I have injured my right foot somehow and think I made things worse by sucking it up and walking to work. I had planned on walking home too as well as Dance Central today but no joy. The pain started a few days ago and is in the sole of my foot near the ball. It feels like cramp/pulled muscle and has become increasingly sore these past few days. No idea how it happened but will be off to the docs if it hasn't sorted itself out soon. If it eases off a bit I'll try Dance Central later.

    Not much else to report really!

    Over and out!

    have you got anything you can do that doesn't involve putting pressure on your feet? i had a trapped nerve in my back that gave me a similar pain, it eventually worked its way out but in the meantime if i stepped wrong i bloody knew about it!

    maybe try just doing some boring old situps, crunches, anything like that?

    I did exactly that! Just focused on exercises that didn't involve putting much weight on my sore foot!

    Hello all!

    An unusual night time update from moi! Managed to walk to work again today despite my gammy foot haha. It seems to ease up a little at night but then get progressively worse as the day goes on. Didn't help that the Brownies were an odd number tonight for games so I had to join in with one of the teams haha. Great fun but my foot is throbbing now!

    Yummy food stuffs!

    B - Banana and strawberries smoothie 252
    L - Ham and tomato sandwich on wholemeal bread with light mayo + a banana 325
    D - Baked potato with tuna,cheese,coleslaw + beetroot salad
    642

    Others: 2 litres water.
    Exercise: 40 min walk to work, Brownies runaround!!


    Total calories: 1,209
    And I am actually feeling quite full, for a change! Satisfied is a more appropriate word, I think . Depending on how my foot feels I may walk to work again tomorrow afternoon and attempt some Dance Central in the morning. Definitely off to the doctors on Thursday if things haven't improved!! Had a wee sneaky scale-hop earlier and am back to 12st 10lbs so fingers crossed it keeps going down and I have a big loss come Sunday .

    Hope everyone else has had a good day!

    Over and out!

    Morning everyone!

    Definitely not going to be walking to work today. Can barely manage stairs now. Gonna get a doc appointment for tomorrow - our surgery is an on the day appointment system so will need to be up bright and early to make sure I get one! Work isn't going to be fun today. Luckily the bus stop is only one block over from my house and it takes me right to the shop's front door. I'll just ask to be on till duty, at least that way there's minimal movement. And dad is picking me up afterwards.

    Today's yummy goodness:

    B - Banana and strawberries smoothie 230
    L - 1 slice white bread,toasted and baked beans with sprinkling of cheese 251
    D - Homemade lentil + vegetable soup
    472

    Others: 2 litres water, orange juice at 110cal
    Exercise: Upper body weights x 30min


    Total calories: 1,063

    That leaves me some room for a wee cuppa tea and a biscuit. I know I shouldn't be scale-hopping but today I am sitting at 12st 9lbs. That's -3lb since Sunday. If I can keep this up then I am expecting a delightful result come official weigh day on Sunday. I'm going to try my hardest not to weigh myself again until then. I think I like to scale-hop just to make sure things are going in the right direction lol. Silly as that is.

    Hope everyone is getting on well.

    Over and out!

    (P.s! Just another 8lbs to get to 12st 1lb then I am officially no longer 'obese' and into the 'overweight' category! woo!)

    see, this i have to learn. for too long i have been programmed to think i'm only "full" when in fact, i am overfull... i need to re-learn that "full" is feeling "not hungry"/"satisfied" after food.

    that 8lb will drop off faster than you think

    Thanks for the tip! Shall look up some pilates vids on youtube today and give it a go .

    Morning all!


    By the time I got through to the docs this morning all the appointments were gone . So need to try again tomorrow. If it's the same situation I'll push for an emergency appointment.Was planning on staying off my foot for the majority of today but my little sister has invited me up this afternoon and I can't refuse the chance to see my gorgeous little nephew-luckily she only lives about a 10/15 minute walk away. Also going to sample her broccoli and chilli soup!

    Delights of the day:

    B - Banana and strawberries smoothie 223
    L - Homemade soup/some broccoli+chilli soup 248/160
    D - Grilled chicken with new potatoes, broccoli and cauliflower 388


    Others: 2 litres water, orange juice at 110cal
    Exercise: 30 min walk


    Total calories: 1,129

    Not a bad total today, with room for some snacks if I want them. I am such a bad scale-hopper - I just can't help myself. Still 12st 9lbs today, thank goodness. I'll be happy if I stay this weight for the rest of the week but obviously I'd like to lose a few more lbs. However, so long as I don't start going back up the way then it's all good .

    Have a good Thursday everyone!


    Over and out!

    All your food sounds super tasty!!! Are you sure you aren't eating too little though? I always get nervous going higher cal but it does actually seem to rejig my metabolism and boost my losses. Especially as you eat so well with clean foods etc. Maybe add another smoothie in the afternoon or some nuts/fruit? Also I scale hop most mornings but definitely stick to a weekly or bi-weekly/monthly record for your "formal" WI ad the downward trend is so much more rewarding. You are doing fab though, hope you get a dr appointment and foot gets better soon!

    Thanks for your advice-I do have a daily calorie aim of 1,400 but I just never seem to get there! Another smoothie in the afternoon sounds like my best option as I love them and they are filling. It's strange to think I ever ate over the RDA to begin with!!
