The Counts Diet Support Thread



  • i'm having jacket potato with tuna mayo (made with only a teaspoon of mayo) and a big helping of runner beans.

    well done TL!

    and i'll be "drinking in moderation" fruity. so thats moderately large glasses of white wine then!
  • Wimps!

    I had a chicken and ham salad with probably too much potato salad, but otherwise rather good :)
  • Lunch: off to Sainsburys again. chicken salsa wrap again (it was so good I decided to repeat) and a chicken breast sandwich.

    Was very naughty and hit a Kit Kat though :(

    Dinner, had grilled tuna steak and veggies. Majestic!
  • Battered sausage & chips last night yum!

    Back to being good today
  • I tried that home made oven chips / wedges last night...v good with chilli oil
  • Drum roll, first public Thursday weigh in...

    Spectacular weekly weight loss of (shudder) 0.2 lbs.

    Not unexpected given week of eating out and general overindulgance. Next week looking for 2 lb loss!!!

    P.S. Anyone watch Celebrity Fit Club? Can't believe Amy the Yank is on program... If she doesn't want to lose weight then why go on the show? "I love my shape" repeated every 2 minutes... Amy thou dost protest too much
  • She likes being the shape of a football?

    All a load of rubbish.
  • She might like it, actually. It can be a defence against allowing people to close (literally and emotionally).
  • Had another lunch of soup and salad and a run home from work tonight to an evening of fishcakes. Tomorrow I'm going to allow myself a few beers and a rest day. Back to the slog Saturday. Oooo the suspense of the Monday weigh-in is killing me. Also hoping for 2lbs per week (at least initially).
  • Will you really not be drinking next Friday then Count?
  • Rach - I'm not going to go. Not because I don't want to see you getting your toes rubbed by minkey but that I've a v early flight to Barcelona on Sat morning. Now this will be a real challenge not eating too much... I love tapas.
  • Now you've gone and made me blush!

    Shame we won't see you, hope you enjoy your trip.
  • I'm sure it will be great...been meaning to go for years...God bless those at Ryan air and they're free flights!
  • Hi all,

    Hope we're all doing well.


    2 slices of toast with butter

    Haven't decided what we're eating tonight yet, got to go shopping for that.

    30 mins run and 30 mins abs class.

    Monday weigh in better be 2lb lighter.
  • TL - that's not much of a lunch...

    30 min abs class sounds painful!!!!!
  • Not feeling the pain yet, but tomorrow I'm sure I'll be crying.

    Having problem with what to eat a lunch time bored with sarnies, and never feel very hungry after being down the gym.

    Do have a proper meal when I get home, mainly cos I have no choice in the matter.
  • Lucky you getting your exercise out of the way....I've got the matter of a 10 mile run home this evening. Hopefully it'll be better than Tuesday's as this was the first time I'd run it for ages and it felt like finishing a marathon rather than less the a 1/2...
  • Need resolve of steel this weekend. Off on a freebie two-day food and drink trip to Cumbria - posh hotels, top restaurants - to write travel feature. Drink isn't a problem (good clean-living Methodist!) but Herdwick lamb, local cheeses, Grasmere gingerbread, posh puds ..... I can hear the scales groaning already. Off tomorrow, so will do as long a plod as can manage before heading west.
  • Use the force Jill...but then again...if I were in you shoes I'd eat normally...maybe just don't finish every course.

    I had some lovely (but very lean) lamb last night...mmmmmm
  • Just back from spinning, was a really good class today (helped by the fact that the gym got there air con fixed again), feeling really good at the moment, although im sure by 3 i'll be flaging and sniffing out some chocolate.
  • (Wanders in flexing fingers)
  • does that help to lose weight Jon? Or is that to stop skipp from raiding the cookie jar?
  • Erm... Burns calories!

  • Minkey! I hope you didnt mean what i thought you meant.
  • Oh... oh no... no no no no no. Perv!
  • Morning fellow slimmers, lets see how good we are over the weekend.
  • yeah, thats the hardest bit for sure.

    Not looking forward to my sunday weigh in either.
  • I'm having a naughty day exercise + beers at 7pm. Back to the diet on Sat though. I've been resisting the scales as well...Strangely looking forward to Monday morning. I hope I'm not disappointed.

    Was reading an article in the Dr's surgery about putting a postive spin on things and visualiation etc. So we're not overweight folks...we're all just becomming slimmer, fitter and sexier...woohoo!
  • Its weird though. I am fitter now then I have even been in my whole life, but I am also fatter now then what ive ever been. I have an awful feeling that age and genetics are playing a big part here, I look horrifyingly like my mother from the neck down which is what i have always tried my best to avoid. Of course, my younger sister is a model and is tall and skinny like my dad.
