    Hello daily threaders

    So much for my planned early night, I'm still up after an enlightening evening in front of the telly. My soaps as per usual but then 3 diet related programmes; the Channel 4 1200 calories diet programme with Anna Richardson and then 2 repeated documentaries on More 4 about obesity in the USA. Thought provoking stuff.

    Well I have made it to the start of day 5, still hungry and would have probably flipped and blipped, except there is no food at home apart from some porridge and a few tins of vegetables.

    Working from home, its great when weather is so awful and also when I have a cold but I am feeling a bit confined. Thought it would be too depressing to have a 'frozen friday' only thread, so I will try to do something nice and fun today, however minor,hence the 'frivolous'!:banana dancer:

    Good Luck to all x

    morning blingbabe! :)

    another one working from home today! Cant move car off driveway so it seems i'm staying put until the weather improves a little bit and i feel brave to try move it! EEEK!

    feeling the benefits of being on SS and loving that my body is already starting to respond to the low cals! Not been wearing "real" clothes this week though cos of the snow so will have to try on some trousers and see if they feel any less tight! lol.
    i have a wardrobe of beautiful clothes that i can not wait to gt back into!!!!!! That in itself is keeping me going!
    I have to keep reminding myself that this isnt forever, its a fresh start and SS is to lose all the excess weight and then its working up the plans again!
    here's hoping that i am learning more this time! :)

    morning all, another "snow day" for me, also can't get car off drive way,I have dug it out but our road is on a steep hill got compacted snow on it, I'm too scared to try and move it, lots of cars have got stuck, and can't get up it! Day 4 ss for me, but I feel so bloated must be all the water I'm drinking, going to walk out to the shops later to get some food in for dh, have a good day everyone.

    Morning all,
    No working from home for me but that's ok as my office is nice and cosy! Could do with a pjyama day though - been on a new pill and have been bleeding for the last 6 weeks! Very fed up with it now and been crampy and sore for the last few days. However, went to docs yesterday and have a different one which I'll start today so hopefully I'll notice a difference over the weekend. Gotta say though, it makes the food demons fight harder, but I won the fight yesterday so intend to do the same today!

    Right, off to the shower.

    Stay warm and keep losing folks!

    This week isnt getting any better for me. Didnt make it to my CDC last night and wont be making it to her tonight either as i my car is still on the garage forecourt over 50 miles away and the damn snow isnt convincing my boyfriend to go any further than he has to.

    He was meant to pick me up from work yesterday at 4pm by 6.30pm our friend and his family rescued me :)
    Today however im meant to finish work at 2 and i k now for a fact he wont even be considering leaving work at that time let alne picking me up by then :( :( :( :(

    I have worked 36 and a half hours already and im only meant to do 38 and i wont get any extra pay for being here cos they havent asked me to be :(

    My boss is a pretty decent man so i know he'll let me have time off instead, whether its a half day or starting later a few days in the week or leaving earlier. So much harder when the assistant manager is on holiday, i have no car and the weather is proper gay.

    blah blah blah

    Well ive had my first shake and about to start drinking my 1.5litre bottle of water.

    I went OTT on the green tea yesterday as we had no heating at work so hot drinks only. Dont think i could have had any more when i got home so i was drinking warmish water when i finally got home haha.

    Today feels like its a long day already so im going to popping on and off here all day to keep me entertained.

    Sorry being a whingy git, im normally a very outgoing person but at the moment im well and truly stuck so feeling a bit down.....

    Hi Daily Threaders --

    Was going to start working out by heading to the gym this am -- then got a message from my future workout partner that a water pipe had burst, so now we'll meet up on Monday am. But, my neighbour just phoned and we're going to brave the cold to walk the dog. Be back on later.

    Good morning all! Just a quick hello this morning as I've got to finish getting ready and get into uni to meet with my group and go over our presentation for Tuesday. Is my first day of my restart today so hopefully it'll go well. Will avoid the uni shop where they sell lots of yummy food, a lot healthy, but still. They do chef courses so have their food they make as part of their course for sale, so I shall stay away. The CD soup will be better than their soup anyway I'm sure!! =/ Not a great start this morning though, can't find my shaker! Will pop to the shops on the way home and buy a stick blender though so will just have to wait until then, will be fine.

    As I'm starting today and seeing my CD on monday I think I'm going to use my own weigh ins and measurements as my official ones as it'll actually be a week each time. It also makes it a bit easier with my CDC as she works shifts so it doesn't matter so much to me if we meet on a different day instead. Is it sad that I'm excited by it all?!

    Hi Again,
    Caroline I think it is great that you are excited -- it bodes well for success. We walked the dog and saw lots of other brave souls out with theirs. True Love. My fingers were so stiff when we got back to the house that when she pulled on the lead... she got free! However, we were pretty certain that she just ran next door, even though I was we walking with the neighbour that lives there. Sure enough, was waiting for Pat by her back door. Relief... and some extra steps. Getting ready to set up the DS Fitness Coach -- that I've been looking at all week. Won't count steps if you're running or stepping -- just walking. Thank goodness I'm so unfit that I'll only be walking on the treadmill for now. LOL

    Oh what a weekthis has turned out to be - I have decided that snow is only exciting if you have never seen it before or you are in the Alps for a ski-ing holiday; otherwise it's a right nuisance.

    I can see from reading the posts that I have had a much easier time, working from home with pay assured and not having to venture out since it started.

    On a positive note, my cold seems to be improving and I wasn't terribly hungry when I woke up- will soon have my first foodpack (hot chocolate, yummy!). Wasn't sure that I would make it to Day 5, so pleased that I have, it was worth it to go through the rumbling tummy and constant hunger. Don't think I am in ketosis yet but certainly on the way.

    I do feel for the people that have been so disrupted by the snow; Hayley, it must feel as if so much has gone wrong this week, right down to the heating failing at work. Lets hope that the darn snow will go!

    Catch up later x

    Hi Claire,

    Well done -- I'm working on it (the water). I'm going to finish this pint, go out and shovel the walk (as I planned an hour ago) -- and then get some more stuff accomplished.

    MM

    P.S. Does Kaya do amusement parks like Alton Towers?
