    Well that went out the window *sigh* my net calories were 1540 today, that's 350 calories over my goal! :eek: Guess next time I just won't have food beforehand because every time I go to a party I just feel compelled to eat something and my friends were egging me on to ugh so mad at myself right now :mad:
    That's still not bad as your still in calorie deficit so its unlikely you gained any weight and you probably would still lose quite a bit this week

    Hey guys I'm cooking dinner tomorrow night (for three) does anyone have any suggestions for tasty high protein / low carb meals I could do? Fat isn't an issue but I definitely don't want to do pasta as I always eat too much. If it is relatively easy that would also be awesome Currently thinking of doing fajitas / enchiladas but it's a bit of a go to recipe and I wanted to try something new... Thanks in advance

    Omg, that is so good, so close. I keep on looking at your before and after pics, and it's go great and motivational to see someone lose that much weight and to be able to follow their journey.

    It was not my intention to become your stalker

    Yes. You're presumably already eating at a deficit. Not eating your exercise calories makes that a massive deficit. Exercise increases your metabolism so you burn more that day than just the immediate energy required to exercise anyway.

    I use it as an incentive. Work out more (get fitter/stronger) = can eat more (without putting on weight). Seems like a win-win situation to me.

    Thanks to phiddy23 and infairverona, made my first ever homemade vegetable soup today Tastes awesome, going to freeze and have for lunch next week

    Unfortunately had a rubbish session at the gym Tried to do some HIIT but put the speed up too high and made myself ill Stomach was hurting so much! That'll teach me, going to stick at a steady pace run from now onwards, until I get a bit fitter anyway.

    Repping you for pointing out how we can never rep Angel! Damn you rep point limits!!

    --

    Also updated my ticker today I feel that seeing as I have managed to maintain my weight at 9 stone 6 pounds for three days I should be entitled to lower my pounds in the current weight box mwahaahaaa, even if my weigh-in isn't til next Friday :rolleyes:

    Very excited about the fact I'm now a stone away from 8 stone 6 pounds, eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :woo:


    Edit: Yay for unnecessary negative rep! I am now going to crawl up into a hole and cry my poor little heart out because someone on the internet disapproves of what I'm saying :ashamed:

    I love stalkers Thank you. I can't believe how thin I look sometimes. Sometimes I look at myself and think I look huge, but then I'll catch a glimpse of myself in a mirror and I'll think okay there's SUCH a difference!

    I think I'm going into starvation mode. I've had 4 days of eating about 500 calories per day and I'm still in a plateau. Actually I was 9 stone 12lbs 6oz at my lowest, and I've gone up a tad to 9 stone 13lbs exactly as of this morning.

    I'm not doing it deliberately though - I'm really poorly, I've not had a cold this bad in about the past decade, which is saying something considering I pick up at least 6-8 colds a year thanks to the kids. But this is just ridiculous. I have gone through 200 tissues in less than 24 hours.
    Needless to say I haven't got much of an appetite.

    I'm ordering a calzone tonight to share with hubby to see if I can force a bit into me and kick start my metabolism a bit. I'm not hungry (only had 272 calories today so far in the form of 2 asparagus cuppa soups) and to be honest I can barely smell anything anyway, so that sort of defeats the whole point of eating anyway as I can't taste much, but I don't suppose I'm going to shake this cold (OR lose weight) if I don't get some calories into me for energy.

    meh

    Four days isn't enough to go into 'starvation mode'. I'd chalk it down to your body storing all reserves, as it were, if you're ill. Also may be just down to the point you are in your menstrual cycle. I'm sure you'll see a nice loss in a week or so, frustrating as it may be. :hugs: Calzone is an excellent idea though, curry would be even better, burn that cold out!

    I always worry incase I'm the phantom negger.. Because when I'm on my phone I end up pressing all sorts!

    But I take comfort from the fact that I can never rep any of you so it's kind of unlikely :P xx
