  1. Debs it was great to see you! Here's to the Manchester Marathon
  2. How long does a bag last when it's opened? Will it do 2 feeds 3 months apart?
  3. I would just like to thank ANH for starting this topic! She posted the originally on the 6th of April and 10 days later I started it. Now nearly 9 months later I have lost an amazing 102.6lb/46.54kg/7 stone 4.6lb! I hadn't heard of this before it was posted here so I cannot thank you enough!
  4. We bought it and love it as much as the first! We use it all the time. Everyone likes the diet doner kebab!
  5. I thought that too. At school they play tag up to the end of primary Y6 but at the rugby clubs they start contact earlier. Chrissie I wonder if it's something to do with the risk and suing the school if something happens Tried to persuade son to try out for local rugby club but he's not interested, my brother has played since he was 8 (nearly 30 years) and has had several broken bones, his nose will never be straight again and he's loved every minute! Son is not remotely sporty though.
  6. My son is in Year 9 (he's 13) and is playing rugby but they're only allowed to play tag rugby, certainly not full contact.
  7. Hope everyone is doing well! I'm still carrying on, need to lose 1.6 lb this week to make it 4 stone lost! Still need to lose more but I find it easy to keep going
  8. Thought I'd post an update, am now just over 3 stone lighter I feel so much better even if I do still have some more to lose hope everyone else is doing well!
  9. I put on 2lb when we went away and lost it the week we got back easy come, easy go!
  10. We ordered the ladybird larvae and hopefully they will help but of course we also found ladybirds on the tree last night - never mind there are enough aphids to go around!
  11. This is a bit of an odd request - does anyone know where we can purchase live ladybirds? We have a dwarf cherry tree that is seriously overrun with aphids! I don't want to use pesticides (right next to chicken run) and looking it up seems the best natural thing is ladybirds. We had loads a few years ago but none this year. Any help gratefully received!
  12. I'm fasting today, another 1.5 lb lost this week
  13. Weigh in today, lost the 2lb I'd gained and an extra half lb - quite happy with that!
  14. I agree about not paying any fees it's just one of the reasons I chose to try this out! Congrats on the weight loss too
  15. That's great ANH, I must admit I feel that way about it as well! I weighed this morning and only gained 2 lb so am very pleased! Back to it on Monday
  16. Back from a very indulgent holiday will be weighing in tomorrow to see what the damage is back to 5:2 on Monday!
  17. Another weigh in and I've lost 1 and a half stone in total (in nearly 6 weeks) Some of that is from the 'time of the month' as I can fluctuate by up to 4lb but I'm so pleased! Still a way to go but so long as it's in the right direction I don't care how long it takes
  18. Looking on the 5:2 forum, lots of people try this as maintenance after losing the weight they wanted to.
  19. Just about to eat - home made cottage pie and extra veg - yum! Although I could quite easily go without food at all today that's def not like me!
  20. Another fast day here too. Looking forward to my Hairy Bikers sweet and sour chicken and rice
  21. Cinnamon, I have a lot of weight to lose and have tried so many diets over the years and never stuck at them! This I find really easy, if I want some chocolate I can and if it's a fast day I'll have it the day after. I also use something called My Fitness Pal on the computer (and phone) it's free and helps me track the calories on my non fast days as well. Lot's of people manage without it but I'm an over eater and it helps keep me on track!
  22. Morning all I agree with the flexibility of this, it's why I really like it and I don't feel deprived at all. Another fast day here, weighed this morning and lost another lb so that's 15lb in 4 weeks still a long way to go but as the weight creeps on over the years I know it's going to take some time to come back off.
