Right well newbies hello and old members im back again :D

Still about the same weight and floudering so giving it one more go, im much more active in my day to day life so must be eating like a stag. I work 3 mornings at a week in a riding school and am muc king out 15 horses and riding a couple of times a week as well so that is burning calories.

I have all the support from my OH that i need and i really want to do it this time.
I know this site has proved helpful in the past with stories and everyone in the same boat ;)

So here i am :D:D:D

Hello and Welcome back!!!



Silver Member
Well back from this mornings work, 2 hours of mucking out and 30 mins riding ( had to call it a day though as someone was lunging their stallion and my horse was NOT impressed with that thundering past lol )
So i feel nice and healthy, and stinky and will be off to my 2nd job in 10 minutes ( and im walking there wooooohoo ), will have to get some new batteries for my pedometer so i can see how many steps i take a day


love it

Hello, i remember you !! welcome back-i think you were going to be moving house werent you ?
nice to see you again


Silver Member
Oooh yes mommy i did move house, good memory :D

We have been here a while and settled in nicely now, i couldnt go back now lol

Hope your dieting has been going well

Well im not in a good way this morning, diet wise im well, sticking to my points and planning dinner the day before but my back is sooooooooooo sore. I got woken up at 5.30am and was in too much pain to get back to sleep. I can hardly stand straight in the morning and rolling over in bed is a no go
I havent been to the docs as i know they will say it could be my weight problems so i will lose a bit first and hopefully reap the rewards in health beifits. For now i have been to the chemist and got deep heat spray ( very bizzare when used for the first time ) and nurofen for backs and paracetamol, then if i do have to go to the docs i will be able to say i have tried everything lol and hopefully be a good stone lighter

Hope everyone is doing well today :D

hey hope your back feels better soon! god the dreaded docs... i can count a zillion times i have been to the docs and they have blamed it all on my weight! and its not always that! a couple of years back I had a terrible cough for about 3 months and it just wouldnt go away after trying numerous cough medicines... when i went to the doc GET THIS... he said... because I am so overweight my stomach acids are being pushed up into my lungs etc and that is making me cough. well it turned out that I had a very bad chest infection and had fluid in my lungs because of how long I had the cough etc... and i was in hospital for over a week with a thingie machine to help me breathe!

Anyway moral of the story.... if you think this pain is more than just a random ache then go to the docs and beat a drum till they are prepared to treat you properly instead of blame it on the weight!

Sorry 4 the rant xx get well soon

Well had a good weekend but a small blip on Sunday when i was soooo busy i hadnt planned dinner and we eneded up having a kebab ( which tasted awful anyway ), that'll teach me
So was definatly over my points Sunday dont know by how many i didnt work it out but i swept it under the carpet and carried on the next day, i didnt let it drag me into a complete weeks blow out like normal :D

Have been good the rest of the week and more importantly i havent hopped on the scales to see how im doing so tomorrow im looking forward to a good result

Off to the inlaws tomorrow in cornwall for the weekend so although i wont be counting points i will be making good choices on what to eat and back to the points Monday

Well i didnt get chance to update before we left for Cornwall but i lost a whopping 7lb this week
Its sooooooo great i have eaten like a horse ( excuse the pun ) not saved points, not gone without and definatly not lived off salad and soup but it is falling off me this time
I have had an indulgent weekend but will be back to 100% tomorrow and we only get down there a couple of weekends a year so i have to allow myself a little break

We have done alot of walking this weekend however so lets hpe that helps a little, hope everyone is having a good week

Day one back on track and its going ok, i normally eat 28 points a day and have checked this morning and it looks like i have gained 4lb while i was away so im knocking 4 points off a day for the next 3 days till weigh in and hopefully do damage limitation

Been to the stables this morning so have had my workout for my arms and i tell you after a few days off its really hard to get back to it hahahaha
