giving up snacking on junk between meals like liquorish allsorts when i'm on this forum!
22/10/2002 at 22:13
reducing cheese intake (not stopping, 'cos it's quite nutritous in moderation.

I'm now equipped with a glass of extremely dodgy Ukrainian red wine.

Sorry about the gunners. Cambridge won 4-0, not that anyone else would care.
22/10/2002 at 22:22
Ok here goes

no more than ONE medium glass of red wine per night

No crisps

No finishing Jumpets Tea

Ah that feels better
22/10/2002 at 22:23
I feel for you about the crisps
22/10/2002 at 22:25
I'll join in too out of support.

Can't think of anything to give up though!

I know - no Burger King til the 17th (BK is a weekly indulgence for me when I feel like a junk-food fix).

22/10/2002 at 22:25
Well be checking you know
22/10/2002 at 22:27
Feel free!

Giving up chocolate, though - that's just crazy talk ;)
23/10/2002 at 06:09
O go on then - no more scotch eggs (a personal weakness, they always find their way into my shopping basket, and they always give me indigestion - so I don't know why I do it).

How about nearly giving up "London Pride".

If I can it would be close to a miracle.

Morning all! Got to get to Camden for 8am hence the early post.

Good to see we can get into site this morning.

Have a good day

Those niknaks are just sitting downstairs, tempting me after my slow morning run!!

Could I give up running? Haven't been able to get it together at all since my long run on Saturday. Think I've frightened myself! And then this morning my running partner couldn't come, because she's hurt her achilles, so there I was, all alone in the pitch black. I didn't like it! Seriously, we have a rapist around here who's attacked nine females (aged 10 - 60) in the last three months, so I'm a bit twitchy. But I get SO embarrassed about going out in daylight. Consequently, I managed only 2 miles this morning, 'cos I couldn't wait to get back home. So, a bit mis I'm afraid.

I'll join you all on this. I'm going to give up my Lunchtime Lagers and the occasional early morning Danish Pastry (no more than once a week....OK, maybe twice..).
Went into my local deli after my Run/Walk session at the gym this morning and got a fruit salad. It was worth it just to see the look on their faces.

Morning flagellants.

I'm SO glad that self-denial is the flavour of the day because I'm giving up running (apart from the planned run with DD on Monday - wouldn't miss that for anything) and foruming for two weeks. I'm off as soon as this is posted.

It's just getting slightly inconvenient. I'm planning family activities around runs and trips to the gym, my husband missed a concert last week to let me do a gym session (it wasn't very well reviewed afterwards anyway, but still...), and my online activities are interfering with getting paperwork done. And tomorrow I'm off for a few days anyway, so it seems like a good time.

I shall stay active and try not to eat too much junk, although my body has already twigged that I haven't run for a couple of days and is trying to head back to 9 stone. Ah, well, it's only a fortnight.

Happy foruming. See y'awl soon.

You will be sorely missed V rap.

Off to play pirates at Hampton court today then for a run in Bushey park whilst friend watches the Jumpets.

Off to the frozen north tomorrow to visit my poorly grandad so god knows what I'll be eating the next couple of days but I have a promonition that 'Little Chef' may come in to it at regular intervals.

Sassie, don't forget to email me about the christmas cracker chase.

Have a good day all

I feel as though I should be giving something up to assist with the support of the group but I can't think what. I don't eat chocolate very often so that would be too easy, I hardly ever eat crisps, I'm not even gonna consider giving up alcohol because it's a friends birthady on Saturday... hmmm... don't eat biscuits, don't do caffeine, don't smoke...

HELP!!!! I need a vice so that I can give it up!!!!
23/10/2002 at 09:16
Sob sob... V-Rap... we miss you already!!!
23/10/2002 at 09:38
Will find it very difficult to give up something entirely but as I don't eat crisps much and couldn't give up choccie then it will have to be biscuits. If I don't buy them then I can't eat them but Mr SG will complain a bit.

Ok Benz, in the true spirit of the Fat Club I shall go vegan until 17th Nov. I'm veggie already so it's not as bad as it sounds and I always do it for Lent anyway. However, by the time 17/11 comes around I will be begging for a piece of cheese, buttered toast and chocolate (not necessarily in that order!) This also means that I can still partake of an alcoholic beverage if required (phew, there has to be something to look forward to).

BTW everyone, did you know that the Fat Club has been going now for 21/2 months? I tentatively started the very first thread on 9th August following a discussion with Lamby and within a matter of days the thread was so big we had to start daily threads instead! A lot of the original people are still around (and still struggling with their weight - including me!) but there have been loads of newbies joining all the time. Fantastic. Lets hope we all achieve our goals.

Good luck to everyone weighing-in today.

Redhead, thanks for the reminder about the creation of Fat Club.

I went trawling through the old posts the other day to find out the first weight I'd posted. It was 15st 2lb on the 22nd August. I was 14st 8lb this morning so I'm feeling quite smug - the thread has certainly helped me a lot in staying focussed, so thanks to you, Lamb and the others who got this going.
