Put it in perspective a little, 1/2 lb a month is nearly half a stone a year. So 2 years and a stone off that's pretty impressive if you are enjoying your foods. Certainly better than the opposite gaining half a stone a year which at your age (mine too) can so easily happen :)

Re: scale y/n?

Sorry to hear that but there is a lot of evidence that reducing carbs will help your condition, also the number of times you eat. Hopefully this will give you extra incentive to stick to the rules :)

Good luck

Re: scale y/n?

Gabby are you type 2 diabetic?

If so cutting the snacks and sweets is really going to help you.

Thanks, it resonated with me in respect of a new hobby I took up some years ago and seemed appropriate here.

Re: Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

If you can drink it without sugar I would do and do but I do add milk.

With you on the dark chocolate Oolala, used to hate it but live a good quality one now and really don't crave milk chocolate anymore.

Re: scale y/n?

I weigh once a week on a Friday, it is hard not to let it influence your mood.

Be careful if your weight goes up are you likely to be silly over the weekend? If so switch to Monday.

Pinkhippie, I've just been checking out Chris Mole, an interesting read thank you

Octavia, I recall it took me a while to start consistently losing and I often see the scales go up and down even now. As long as the trend is down I wouldn't worry

When I am in the groove I don't tend to gain weight on holidays, it's a great feeling when you get home.

Well done

I understand the need to control something. :)

I eat 70%or more dark chocolate. I found an almond and orange one I like.

I enjoyed it all and what I think is cool is that because I don't limit myself I can feel the freedom now (sometimes) to take a bite of a cookie and think: nah, I don't want / need this right now. (!!!)
This is the best bit! At this point you have really made progress :)

Hey

Blow the voice in your head, go for it, worse case they don't like it but you will learn so much doing it. Nothing to lose except a bit of time.

I really believe it's that good bad that causes problems. It has taken me a long time to get over it. For me now I see good or bad food only in respect of whether it is unadulterated and natural (good) or highly processed, low fat, artificially sweetened, full of chemicals (bad) Try and view food as...
