Sounds like exactly what I need to do to.
I read one person saying there's no point eating the cals back though as your back to square one or I might have read it wrong?
I don't know what to do now. I suppose I just need to cut out crap and say do two runs a week and say two weights/shreds? That sound right?

I just don't have the time to dedicate that much exercise with the boys, household chores and social life (not that I have much of one but wih emails and visitors)
But I'm happy wih that. I'm going to do 1 long run of 10k then a short run of 2-5k trying to beat my personal bests. I'm not prepared to give up my running in place of shred as im entering some races this year and don't want to lack on my progress that I've done

So do you think I would be better off sticking to 1230 or putting it back up.
I cant always do exercise as work does not always allow time for the gym and 30 ds can only be done every 2 weeks.
Help please I so want to get down to the next stone bracket

I have my bridesmaid dress from her previous weddding that never went ahead (don't ask ). I can't really remember what size I was then but I must have been smaller than I am now. So I have to try and get my fat ass into it.
I'm struggling to lose weight as it is (not for the want of trying) I'm never going to fit into it. I'm at a loss how I can get the scales moving. I'm bang on calorie target practically everyday and do 5-7 sessions of exercise a week, surely I can't do much more?! The only thing I can think of is to cut my calories again but I'm always hungry as it is

What's your calorie target at Hannah? Do you think you're feeling hungry because your know you have to stick to a target. I feel hungry sometimes but I also think its my mind playing tricks on me as I'm trying to eat well x

It actually has crossed my mind about getting my thyroid tested as my mother suffers from an under active thyroid but I'm not sure if it's something that can just develop as when I lost weight after Lewis I always seemed to have good losses. Another thing that has crossed my mind is I had the coil fitted at the beginning of the month and wondering if it's the increased hormones?! They say to allow 3 mths for it to settle once fitted so I will just keep plodding on until then in the hope my body let's go of this flab

I eat far too much rubbish but have no idea where to start!
Posted 29 February 2012 - 11:37 AM
Here is a list of clean foods. These are foods that, assuming they’re prepared properly, are approved for you to eat. In fact, these foods should form the bulk of your diet.
Protein SourcesChicken Breast
Fish (lean - Bass, Cod, Halibut, Tilapia, Tuna, Whiting, Swordfish)
Fish (fatty - Herring, Mackerel, Salmon, Sardines)
Lean Beef 90% (or leaner - Lean Ground Beef, Eye of Round, Top Sirloin)
Low-Fat Dairy Products (Cottage Cheese, Milk, Yogurt - greek yoghurt in particular)
Protein Powder ( Whey, Casein, Soy, Milk protein isolate)
I should point out that whole eggs, salmon and other fatty fish do also contain fat; so they’re really a source of protein and good fat, especially if you opt for Omega-3 enriched eggs and “wild” fish as opposed to farm-raised.
Likewise, low-fat dairy products typically contain a decent amount of carbs. So to be precise, you’d probably need to reduce your carbs elsewhere.
Vegetables (Artichoke, Asparagus, Green Beans, Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Cauliflower, Spinach, Courgette, Lettuce, Squash, Tomatoes, Peppers, Mushrooms, Cucumbers, Celery, Carrots, Bean Sprouts, Alfalfa Sprouts, Bamboo Shoots, Cabbage, Aubergine, Spring greens, Onions, Kale, Okra, Leeks, Turnips, Radishes, Fennel
Most of your carbohydrate daily intake should be made up from foods selected from the list above.
Beans (any variety - not baked beans)
Pasta (wholewheat only)
Whole Grain & High Fibre Cereals (no added salt or sugar)
Whole Grain Bread
Other Sprouted Grain Bread
Fruit (Nectarines, Strawberries, Blueberries, Raspberries, Bananas, Watermelon, Pineapple, Cherries, Apples, Pears, Oranges, Peaches, Plums, Grapes, Apricots, Mangos, Kiwis, Figs, All Dried Fruit)
Consume these foods mostly in the morning and with protein to slow the energy release.
Oils (Fish, Flax, Olive, Sunflower, Groundnut)
Nuts (Almonds, Walnuts, Pistachios, Macadamia Nuts, Cashew Nuts, Pecan, Brazil)
Seeds (Pumpkin, sunflower, seseame)
Natural peanut and almond butters
The greatest source of good fats, fatty fish are included on the protein list.
Hummus, because it’s made with chickpeas, also has a pretty significant amount of carbs; so adjust your meal plan accordingly. Although natural peanut butter is an option, do not make it your staple fat source. In fact, almond butter is a better option.
Hope that helps!

I weighed out all of my lunch as it went on my plate today but I left a slice of boiled egg and 2 potatoes - I can't be bothered to work out what that would weigh and in the past if I've not finished something I haven't changed it either - just wondering what everyone else does.

My friend had a baby 3 weeks ago and is starting to think about cutting back on the calorie intake slightly.
She is expressing for little one too.
What do you suggest she sets her weekly loss?
