I'll be following what you do Lisa, might give me some ideas or inspiration as I've got too much round me as well, sounds like we're similar shapes.

Be careful with cutting things out completely tho, everything in moderation is better as you can still have a little of your favourites. This linky might be helpful, it's advice from British Heart Foundation http://www.bhf.org.uk/plugins/Publicati ... esource=M2
It's a pdf you can download. It what I was given when I got the diabetes dx last year, and I started using it and it helped. It's a steady 1~2lb loss a week which means you have a better chance of keeping it off long term. It was working well, I wasn't hungry, but then things started happening and taking over everything so I fell off the wagon, and with more and more happening, I've not been able to get back on it. Been thinking about it and when/how to start again. Maybe get the CFS clinic out of the way, celebrate OH's half century burpday, then sticking both of us on seems like a plan.

Thanks Lisa :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

hi lisa i will post the scone recipe for you after the wwekend as i am off untill wednesday yippe.

you are right any exersise will be good

you just need to keep going and not be down if you do have a off day and eat something you think you shouldnt,

sometimes you will get so fed up its best to have a little treat.

to keep you going you have got your diet head on and im sure you will succeed you have a great mum to give you the help and support

and you sound like you have the motivation.

take care xx

If you could post the fruit cake recipe as well, I'd love to have a go at it, as well as the scones. I've been reducing the amount of sugar I put into things since the diabetes dx last year, but a recipe that doesn't actually use it would be even better :clap: :clap: :clap:

Lisa, wrt exercise, one of my aunts joined weight watchers to help with weight loss, and like you've described, had very similar issues with exercise and mobility. She too invested in an exercise bike, expecting that she wouldn't get that much use/help from it. She initially started with doing half a minute a couple of times a day, then steadily built up how long she could cycle, as well as the number of times she used it each day. The last I heard, she was doing 15mins at least 4 times a day and she'd hit her target weight and was holding steady.

If you start off doing a few seconds at a time a number of times a day and gradually build on it, it will all help. The latest diabetes newsletter I've had in says that even a minute of extra exercise helps, not just with glucose levels, but with general wellbeingness as well. And when I had my latest review, I was told the same then. Sitting in a chair and doing some gentle arm exercises will help, anything that gets you moving a little more than you would normally do all counts towards it.

Lisa good luck with your adventure :goodluck1: and :welldone: for making the start it is daunting when you set off but you will get there with all of us supporting you :-D

I joined slimming world 4 years ago and like you and most of us excercise is practically impossible but with the ideas and recipies that turn every day meals into slimming meals I lost 3st
I have put a few recipies on here viewtopic.php?f=25&t=10382 (hope this bit is right)

I am happy to put any recipies you might like on here just let me know, I too have a sweet tooth and could survive happily on cakes and sweets all day every day ah what a thought :lol: :oops:

I tried a lot of the recipes you posted Lorraine and really enjoyed them :clap: :clap: :clap: WW do their own versions of them, but what I found with theirs was a real lack of taste/flavour. Not sure if it was the difference in amounts of the ingredients, but the Slimming World ones seem to have more flavour to them :-? :-? :-? :-? :-?

i really need to do this as i am going on holiday and its only a month away now :yikes: :yikes:

exercise is a problem for me too - been to gp and got a health referral to local sports centre, i've have had a gym induction and easiest thing was treadmill and exercise bike recliner but with it not actually on as couldn't peddle, and did them both for a bout 5mins.

i mean to start everyday but as today,

breakfast - banana, small size mars bar
went swimming for 1/2 hour and did some hydro exercises for 5 mins and tread water

lunch - piece veg quiche, 2 rice cracker/peanut butter, apple doughnut, :nono: :nono:

snack (cream egg :oops: )

dinner - pancake, banana, peanut butter

:oops: :oops: just realised as i don;t eat big plate full s of stuff don;t realise how i graze,

wouldn;t mind but bought 5 pots of cheap strawberries after swimming with intention of making smoothies/milkshakes but go for convenience verytimme. its 1/2 the battle not having the energy to do stuff. even put some veg in pan when got back from swimming..

just caught up well done so far lisa.

oh brought the morning tea up then he has got up and made me a banana & strwberry smothie for breaky with my flaxseed - read its good for fibre when gluten free. was lovely.

now laying here thinking of monring coffee and one of those mini mars bars had yesterday :oops: :oops: but will resist.

put the veg in a pan last night and some bacond bits so can have soup for lunch.

will try and resist the chocy or come on here to distract me - will report back later lisa then will stop me from being naughty.

oh wants to go out but i a shattered from swimming yesterday so do i drag myself out of bed on the only dry day as given rain tomorrow and i am the one who moans we never go out - not much point being in national trust if you don;t uses it.

especially as we were arguing yesterday as i moaned he was on laptop, eating lunch, fell asleep or played monopoly with the kids which is good but even though he is off work i still feel stranded on my own little dessert islnad settee on my own all the time and never get his attnetion/compnay. :twisted: :twisted:

then as is with this today i am tired when he wants togo out.

normally would have said will have a coffee/mars to wake me up a bit for the energy boost. ima totally dpendent on quick fix energiy thats why i do it to stop being zombifield just realised. anyway enough choccy talk.

speak to you later. :-)
