Wow the pounds were shed last week eh? excellent results, great to see such a busy class too. Welcome to everyone, old and new! 


Well done Mags,   :winner: the maintaining begins - not easy in the beginning but you will soon get the hang of it (and the freedom that comes with it) come on everyone you can do this too.


This morning I am delighted to report .... I am bang on target weight lost a wee half 0.5lb to get me there, when I stood on the scales and it registered this wee loss this morning, I was over the moon, even did a wee dance!


Target weight for 1 whole year, boy do I feel (and look) a million pounds LOL!  :winner:  :winner:  :winner:


Everyone can do this, honestly if I can then you can, keep planning and writing everything down (everything!) and keep joining us at this class - we are all here to support you along with CM.


I never cancelled my on-line membership keep paying my monthly fee, why, because it works, I have the app, this class, my fellow SS members spurring everyone on, and keeps me on the straight and narrow - I still count everything and always will ... not putting those initial 17lbs back on EVER!


There are no excuses, this plan works!  :2thumbs: but you need to put the work in!


Good luck to everyone, I hope the scales are kind to you all.


From a Very Happy Elle! xxxxxx What a feeling!

Woop wooop woop with joy, at last I have hit my 3 st loss after 1 year 4.5 months!!!  I told you, I am not giving up this time, whether I gain, sts or lose weight, I will end up lighter and moving towards target come what may.
I have been working solidly on my daughters accounts, then her payroll, then her accounts again and now I am working on my son-in-law's accounts.  I get so focussed on what I am doing I end up staying up late, not getting enough sleep and not resisting temptation. 
I have had a rocky few weeks from when I posted by 1.5 lb loss on the 26th April.  I gained 3/4 lb the next week, then I gained 4.5 lb last week.  Then in desperation I stuck to the Feelgood plan this week, which allowed me to snack on low fat humous and carrots, low fat cream cheese and carrots or 2 oat cakes etc, without going off the plan.  I also found I was eating more protein (50% fat cheese, eggs, chicken, turkey, low fat beef) and swapping good carbs for alternatives, such as butternut squash lasagne sheets. I had 2 days of classic checks, staying within checks. I also got along to the swimming pool on Thursday, 2 weeks running, for the aqua aerobics class, even though last week my mind did not want to get out of bed, I made myself go and enjoyed it.  I can report that I lost 7 lbs this week mostly following the Feelgood plan without feeling deprived at all. 
That means that since my last weigh in post on the 26th April, with my ups and downs, I have overall lost another 1.75 lbs and have lost 3st exactly since I started my final weight loss journey on the 1st January 2016. 
It is a weight loss battle and journey, but I am going to reach my destination and win this battle eventually.
Good weight loss to everyone. We can do it.

Good Afternoon Everyone

Well I lost another 5 1/4 off this week making it 2st 6lbs in 7 weeks!! Also it's now 2lb short of 5st from my heaviest weigh in March 2016 and although I have only been on the diet for a short time I feel great and have now discarded all my XXXL & XXXL t-shirts and junipers and can now fit back I into my XXL tshirts all this down to eating and walking

I look forward to hearing how everyone else has been doing this last week although from what I can see with the weather down your way it's been a hot one!!

#448249 I Can't Do This Any More

Posted by Dodo on 10 March 2016 - 08:08 PM

I can't.


It's just not happening.  Not now, not ever again.


I can't quit.


Because that would be admitting that I'm weak.  Saying that I'm lazy.  Telling myself that I just don't care about my health.


It would be letting food win.  It would be saying that sugar is smarter than me.  That cake is cleverer than I am.  That I've been out-foxed by a plate of chips.


It would be saying that my mind is even flabbier than my body and has no strength, no ability to change.  I'm stuck where I am now, with no chance of improvement, and it's never going to get any better.


Well, **** that.


My mind's coming on this damn journey, and my body's getting dragged along.  It can kick and scream if it wants, I'm not listening any more.

#447186 Little Things Mean A Lot

Posted by Dodo on 07 January 2016 - 10:55 PM

Tipped the spare chips in the food recycle bucket without a twinge of guilt.  Felt fantastic.


Put all the snacks laid out for my guests back in the tin.  Didn't nibble one.  Felt great.


Refused the offer of mayonnaise and coleslaw on my sandwich at work.  Felt vaguely guilty for not checking that the spread was low-fat or not.


Added a lot more sparkling water to the quarter-glass of fruit juice.  Felt strong.




Stepped on the scales at class for the first time in <mumble>.  Felt determined.  Saw the number.  Felt terrible.


But still determined.


So here's to all the tiny triumphs for 2016.  Every biscuit ignored, every healthier choice, every extra bus stop walked.  It's all good.


And it's good to be back.

#445330 The Singing Swede

Posted by MamaD on 20 August 2015 - 12:20 PM

This seems to work a treat and I'm off to try it cos I hate cutting and peeling them.


"When I heard of people cooking a swede this way it sounded so bizarre I didnt think it would work but hey for 80p for a swede if it didnt work not got much to lose.

The simple answer is it works and works very well, The nickname 'the singing swede' apparently comes from the noise it makes in the microwave when cooking the swede its sort of whistles...very weird I know...and this is the easiest most basic thing I have ever posted I dont think it could even be called a recipe! You dont need to prick the swede or even wash it as you discard the skin.

Singing Swede

1 swede

Place swede in microwave for 15 minutes turning it over halfway through.


When cooked cut off the top and scrape out all the cooked swede and its done.

I love that this is a super easy way to cook a vegetable no peeling, chopping, mashing its all done and I love plain swede with loads of black pepper as a side dish so enjoy and I know this is a bit of a daft post but was so pleased it worked thought worth sharing with everyone."

Good morning all, what a happy morning I managed to lose 8lb and I am gobsmacked !! I have eaten all the foods I like in moderation keeping within my checks, even had alcohol at the weekend ! :2thumbs: I have done a wee bit more walking than usual getting myself out of the office at lunchtime and taken swimming back up, which I love as I don't ache afterwards it supports my currently LARGE frame :piggy: . I am so pleased ..... I know we always lose more in the first week as your body is in total shock haha but what a start, I hope I can keep this up, although I do have a night out and a baby shower this weekend, which is very rare as I don't get out often, I prefer to build a fort and camp with my son ( young at heart). I also only weighed myself after the whole week, which I don't normally do I become obsessive checking everyday...... I really found this helped I wasn't stressed or upset at all, I was just focused. Amazing plan. Good luck to all of you for this week. We can do this !! x

Have managed to lose the 1lb that I recently put back on and that has been by  being VERY careful and counting everything - I wonder if my essential extra checks are too high for me at 80 a week as I still had 20 left over yesterday for the week - ?? so am going to try sticking to a 40check daily limit this week and see how this works! at least its a loss! good to see everyone else still achieving so the plan obviously works! And great having support from everyone on here! x

Morning all, I am glad to see the class growing again and good results being posted.  Well done!  


Love Nick Nairn, I have been to his Cook School and it was brilliant, albeit not very SS friendly when we were there, but such fun and you learn so much.  


Reporting STS, exactly where I want to be! I follow the "usual plan" not sure what it is called Classic Checks with the Flexichecks (which I love)? Whatever my plan is called, it definitely works for me.


Wasn't it just glorious over the weekend - we walked 10 miles on Saturday Falls of Clyde - gorgeous definitely recommend a visit and a huge plus the weather was well "very summery!" Downside - I feel I have rugby player calves from all the hills, bit tender!   Hope it stays nice for Sunday as off to Rothesay walking!!!! 


Good luck everyone, I hope the scales are kind to you all

Posted by jeelbert on 26 May 2016 - 08:21 AM

1.5lbs off this week to make it to my mini-target of 3 stones lost since I started in Jan and I've finally broken the next stone weight barrier - woohoo! Set my new target for another 10% loss which will take me to a BMI that's no longer in the "obese" category. Who would have thought I'd be delighted to be officially "overweight"?
I was out pottering in the garden for 3 hrs yesterday without feeling uncomfortable and I haven't managed that in years. Biggest difference - apart from fewer rolls of fat strangling my middle - is that when I bend down to pick out weeds my head no longer feels as if it's going to explode like a burst tomato. I just might start to enjoy outdoor activities again... we just need a bit more sun please so roll on Summer!

I know from other members' posts on here that no weekly weight loss or even a gain can be very disheartening and I've been very lucky not to have hit that ... yet. That great feeling when the figures go down - even by a 1/2 lb - can't be explained to anyone who hasn't struggled with weight issues so don't give up. I hope you get your "woohoo!" back soon.
Have a great week everyone.

Good afternoon,


All great points mentioned above, i definitely try the 20 min method now when I'm feeling hungry i wait it out, have some water and if I'm still hungry i choose a better option check wise. 


Weighing 2lbs lighter this week! Really didn't think i would have lost this week with losing a lot last week was sure it would have evened itself out however i am very happy with this weigh in which takes me under the 80kg that I've been stuck at and gets me my little silver rosette award woohoo!!


Hope everyone has a great week ahead and good luck :) 


Well done to Mags and Elle on your targets! Mines seems so far off but hoping i get there sooner rather than later. Nice to see you are still around to support :):)

That's amazing Elle!  You are a great inspiration, its lovely to see target member hanging around and just feeling the happiness that exudes from you!  What an achievement for you, I'm not surprised you danced :D 

Sounds like last week was a brilliant week for the class and I'm with you on  :cloud9: today, as I am down 4lb this morning!!! 4lb's - I haven't lost that amount of weight in one week for well over 10 years of off and on trying.  So I'm hoping to do similar next week and continue losing, meal plans are already done and i'm collecting my shopping from Asda later this afternoon after taking my son to swimming :D
