It is but a distant memory for me; i mind it was quite . . .erm . . .'surprising'

But it could do with another outing specially for us weight loss buddies. Shock us into rapid weight loss :woot: :))
Remember @BossHogg donned his Mankini to raise a lot of money for charity and it was very brave of him to do so. I can't think of many other men who would have done that.

Lol i dont know if i forgot that or never knew - i tend to be one of these folks who uses the forum a lot for a few months, then has gaps of years. So i think i just happened to pop in to the forum, saw the mankini pic and disappeared again without knowing the charitable background.

All power and credit to Bosshog!

Not good! I seem to have lost my way a bit on the food front. :( On a more positive note I did go on an 8 mile bike ride🚲🚶‍♀️ 2 nights ago and I've been on a 3 mile walk🚶‍♀️ today.:D

I spent four days carefully not eating chocolate just to see if it would help. No. It didn't. Same weight all four days.

So I bought some chocolate today and I have eaten nearly all of it. Sigh.

Has anyone got any willpower to spare? Or know where i can buy some?

Oh dear - we're all struggling, me included. Taken my eye right of the ball this week. My teenage daughter and i are going on a shopping weekend in Glasgow from fri to mon.

And, rather than preparing for it by eating carefully all week, i went into "sod it" mode early.

Shopped at aldi yesterday and ate at least 6 groovy bars over the course of the day. Might have been 8. Not sure. I bought 2 boxes of 6. It was less than 12. My son had some. Sooooo yummy.


I think i will need to start afresh next Tuesday:oops:

I'm like that too! Glad I'm not the only one. My friend had just finished the Ration Challenge and I thought that if she can do that I can lose half a stone. Er no it hasn't happened. I am now on a healthy eating drive. So far I've managed 2 days but we all have to start somewhere. It's going to be bad eating wise on Saturday as I'm going to my friend's for drinks and nibbles and I can't get out of that but hopefully after that it's onwards and upwards until a week on Saturday when I have a Wedding to go to!

Oh well one can but try ......

Where are you all?! Back from my Glasgow weekend, have had a fab time and eaten quite a bit. Oops.

Went to mcintosh at the willows cafe and had the most marvellous alice in wonderland themed afternoon tea. It was soooo good! Little cakes made into playing cards, clock, mad hatter etc. So clever.


Went to prezzos on sunday night with a meerkat code. Dont know if any of you have noticed they have really scaled back on the generosity of that offer since the pandemic. Mind how it used to be buy one, get one free on each starter, desert and main - well at pizza hut they changed it to 25% off the entire bill. It is something but nothing like as good as before.


Anyway, went to prezzos thinking it was 25% off the entire bill and we werent all that hungry so we just had a garlic bread to share for starter.

When they totalled it up, the waitress said "oh, you could have had an extra garlic bread free"

As prezzo are still doing the buy one, get one free deal on meercat. So, saved a few cals there by not knowing that and assuming they had scaled back like pizza hut.


We went in the huge tall cineworld - i have always wanted to see a film there as we have driven past at night sometimes all illuminated and it looks amazing. It is the biggest cinema in the world - the tallest anyway at over 200ft.


So - what better film than "in the heights?!" Except, it wasnt up on the top storey - it was only 4 floors up!

It was still a brilliant view going up all the escalators though and the film is AMAZING! A definite recommend.


The first day when we arrived, that was the friday and we just had a quick maccy d's for tea. We sat in. We were just hoofing it down to st enoch centre about 15 mins later when my daughter looks at me in horror and exclaims: " my brace!"

She had only gone and thrown her brace in macdonald's bin!

So i phoned them and told them not to empty the bin, we were on our way back.


Got back there - what an amount of rubbish had gone on top of ours. Eventually i found my teabag. We thought we had no chance of finding the brace and were just about to give up when i had it in my hand. Thank goodness.


We had the premier breakfast of toast, scrambled egg, bacon and beans. Not bad. I dont like hash browns, sausages, croissants etc.

Tbh though, i was eating what i fancied and feel totally stodged now and ready to get back to it. Plus the premier was full of mirrors so i had to face the truth.


We have a few days at home now, then away again next week so need to get cracking!

Havent faced the scale yet. Do that tomorrow maybe.



On a positive note, ebony survived well without me. Hubby managed her nebuliser and she was looking good on my return

I dropped a ton of weight before it dropped me. Thus It got my A1C lowered enough to where I am free to get tattoos lol. Diabetes was out of control before where they would not have healed properly.
Of course tats are not the biggest reason to improve your overall health .. lol. Just added bonus for me!
I didn’t even increase my cardio that much. I’m pretty sedentary actually. I lost it through dieting. I started out trying keto but the more emphasis on fat intake bothered my stomach if I recall correctly.

That's an incredible result, well done. Never knew about the tats issue, good motivation 😀 You must feel so much better.
What's modern day Atkins?
