Just Chatting - June '06

Postby Dolly » Fri Jun 09, 2006 12:15 pm

Hi everyone, I hope you're all sticking to your diet plans.
Do you find you generally eat more in winter or in summer weather?

I find I'm too cold and lazy to go to the kitchen to prepare food,
so winter may be my time to lose weight (even though I feel I'm hungrier than in summer time)

Let's meditate on our goals and THINK THIN!

I get hungrier in winter but I am not sure if it is really just in my head! :lol:

I'm still trying to execute an eating game plan for this weekend. Nearly every weekend we have visitors or visit someone and I always cave in and send my weight loss ticker in the wrong direction.
Today I'm strong but do any of you have ideas on how to be strong on the weekend when all the naughty foods come to light?

well here it is half way through Saturday and I'm still on plan. We have a visitor coming over tonight so besides the naughty nibblies I'm making a plate of chopped capsi, cucumber and carrot sticks to go with the bought spring onion dip.

Sounds like you are on the right track Dolly. My suggestion would have been to offer some healthy alternatives like vege sticks but you got it taken care of. Also fruit platters are nice and refreshing and you'll be surprised how everyone tucks into them.

Stay strong, you can do it.

I have terrible trouble at moring teas at work these days. I've decided that from now on, I have to have 2 glasses of water before I can have anything, including fruit. I'm guessing it will help up my water intake, which I still can't get enough of at work, and it will make me feel fuller and eat less (hopefully)
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Unfortunately I read your post too late Kim as the shops are now closed so I haven't got any nice fruit for guests.
These are beer, chips and chocolate type guys anyway (a friend and his two teenage sons)

Tegan, I think I'll adopt your idea about drinking two glasses of water so I don't fill that gap with junk food.

The scales went up due to me consuming some chocolate bullets and 2 glasses of white wine :oops:
I have no-one to blame but myself.

:lol: Ok Dolly maybe the fruit plate wouldn't go over with that crowd. Beer and chips yumm

Tegan I know what you mean about the morning teas it's the same at our place. So far I have managed to be fairly good but it is difficult when there are sausage rolls and mini pizzas, I love that sort of stuff. Ahh and the last one they had mud cake!! I was so tempted. :twisted:

I would suggest the water before you eat anything. Plus maybe sipping a tea(green is good) whilst you have the visitors cos you have the action of moving your hand to your mouth!!! But I am the same as you Dolly and just cave. It's so damn hard.

I read somewhere that if you MUST cave in and go on a binge that you should cut your calorie intake in half the next day and go for a long walk and you shouldn't put on any additonal weight. I usually follow this rule when I go out on the weekends and have a bit too much to drink. The next day I fill myself with water and on the monday (because I'm usually too hung over on the sunday) I do an extra hard workout. I find I don't put on weight when I do this.

Dear Rochelle (Groovychic) you have my deepest sympathy at the sudden passing of your father.

[center]Image
Those we hold most dear
never truly leave us... they live on
in the kindness they showed,
the comfort they shared,
and the love they brought
into our lives.
It will be the little things
that you will remember
the quiet moments
the smiles,
the laughter,
And although it may seem
hard right now.
It will be the memories
of these little things
that will help to push
away the pain,
and bring the smiles
back again[/center]

all my love Dolly (Dolores)
