What have you learnt today?!


Never gets tired of SW!
G: 10st10lb
Hi everyone,
I've been thinking how since starting SW at the end of October I've learnt so much!! It seems that every day something new reveals itself-whether it's about food, exercise, my body, my mind!! I thought it could be fun and interesting to start a thread about things we've learnt today!! It can be anything at all- maybe even a new discovery about the way we feel losing weight!! I'll start- mine's a food fact! 75g of tinned Atlantic sardines have as much calcium in them as a cup of milk!

I've learnt how to make so many tasty treats in so many different ways! (I'm a big fan of the recipe boards btw so thanks all :))
This weekend I made sw ferrero rocher and magic porridge and they were yummy! xx :D
I used to be a researcher and librarian, and every day I was asked to find out lots of different things. When I retired, I decided that I would carry on researching - so I try to find out something new every day.

Yesterday I did some research online into the history of BBC TV Centre (sparked off by a conversation with someone who is working there at the moment) and it was absolutely fascinating.

The other day I noticed an interesting building in town - just an ordinary shop at ground level but looking up I found it had been a hotel. Came home and did some Googling and found out all about it.

Today I am finishing off the weekend papers' general knowledge crosswords, which will mean I will find out all sorts of obscure stuff (especially the Saturday Telegraph one!).

I am also doing the research for questions for a quiz that I am running next week.

I end up with a head full of totally irrelevant and useless knowledge, but it keeps the ageing brain ticking over and with any luck it will keep senility at bay!
And I make a point of checking out my SW books at least once a week, and often find something I didn't know or had totally forgotten.

For instance, I didn't know until today that octopus is a super speed (SS) food - must be all those legs!!!!

before joining SW i used to buy jars of sauce to make tea or if that seemed like to much hard work we would order a takeaway (and i wondered how i was putting on weight!!) i never had breakfast and rarely had dinner, just filled up on a huge tea and chocolate!

since joining i have realised that cooking is quick, easy and still very yummy! i also now eat 3 meals a day and the odd snack :D
