I'm going in 3 weeks and I look like I'm 4-5 months pregnant. I'm NOT impressed!

I've never fancied watching friends. Plus it's on all the time; which in my house means "you don't pay the bills, I get to choose which repeat we've seen a million times that we'll watch again".

Haha I bet you don't look preggers at all! I know you might have changed a bit since the photos you posted, but you look really slim!

It was good in it's day. Bored of it now. I'm just amazed you managed to avoid it!

My belly does look pregnant, the rest of me looks fine.

I can't go for my dinner yet ARGHHHHHHHHHH; I ALWAYS go at 2pm for dinner, oh no in the kitchen someone has decided to set up a meeting. I am fuming. I am NOT eating at my desk, I want to eat at a proper eating place. We have 2 meeting rooms and a kitchen; one meeting room I can see is empty; the other I don't know.

I eat at my desk every lunchtime, it's a bit rubbish. There's no where else to have it, unless I eat out obviously.

They only started at 2 and the table was covered in papers so it doesn't look like its a quick meeting. One guy if he has meetings in the kitchen late, always says to me, I'm having a meeting but feel free to come in and have your dinner.

It's only fair when they hog the eating room.

I think you need to ask your partner for some support
Don't buy things you will be tempted by, you can't eat tehm if they are not there
He could always have a stash of things under lock and key and eat them out of site
Joining a class where you get weighed each week can often help
I alwasy suggest rosemary connolly becasue they really give you great support and they also gicve you swap ideas for foods you like so you don't have to give up on everything you like
Alot of people get on well with weight watchers as you don't have to give stuff up too

I weighed myself last night; well I didn't I was weighing my dads suitcase so in the process had to weigh myself as well. Me and my dad were shocked :(. I'm maybe joining boxercise next week (although I'm not 100% sure what it is) and Aqua fit on a Tuesday night (although not next tuesday cos I'm meeting a friend). My only issue with all the exercise classes is they either start at 5pm or are on during the day. They had a nifty fifites class; I looked at it for my mam...Tuesdays 10am until 12.30. I mean most people over 50 still work. If it was a OAP course then fair enough have it during the day just not a class aimed at working people....stupid!

Thanks Bel, Bel, think it would be useful if my boyfriend didn't eat biscuits etc. in front of me, but at the same time I'm worried that his weight will drop if he doesn't eat stuff like that and he needs to put some on if anything! Maybe he can do it in secret lol, though that's hard when you live together.

Dipsy - I ditto what Ruth said!

I always think portion control is important so give him bigger dinners to make sure he doesn't lose weight. And with rice dishes give him more rice and have less yourself but more veg to fill you up and make your plate look like it's got plenty on it

The one photo where you could see my belly (the angel and devil one) was taken almost 3 years ago; I've gained 2.5 stone since then and it all sits on my belly; it hasn't gone anywhere else, just there.

I've put on about a stone since I moved back home (my mum has too much nice food in the cupboard!! GRR!)
I think I was a bit too skinny before, so I was glad to put a bit on, but now my jeans don't fit properly because I'm a pear shape, so I literally put all my weight onto my bum and hips! I hate it when you just put it on in one place!

And its dawned on me that I'm going on holiday in 2 and half weeks! Arrgh! And none of my holiday clothes fit me from last year (as if I need anymore excuses to go shopping... :oops: )

I find the best thing is exercise. Diets don't work on me.

Dipsy, the best thing for stomachs is posture, if you keep your back straight and hold your stomach in, it not only gradually strengthens and tones the muscles underneath, but makes a massive difference in the mean time also.

This seems like an excellent thread for motivation ideas and slimming ideas in general.

I personally wouldn't crash diet - small changes to your lifestyle can work wonders. I've started getting off the train one step earlier after work and walking the rest of the way home. Not only is it helping me shift pounds, it's also a great way to work off stresses from the day. I'm not a fan of the gym in the summer, though I do try to go when I can! Brisk walking is excellent - pop on your mp3 player and away you go!

Regarding food, the Rosemary Conley recipes are great - I lost 3lbs the first time I stuck to the plan. You can get the GI Hips and Thigh recipe book from Amazon for a relatively low price and it doesn't feel like you're on a diet at all. It's my bible - I've never been to a slimming class but that book is amazing!

I think I'm going to start a recipe thread in chit-chat for stuff like this ... watch this space!
