    [–] Lose It! App Update narfnarfnarf77 1 points ago in loseit

    Yeah, I upgraded too and would defs recommend - just make sure you then turn off the reoccurring payment setting

    This video really helped me to stop and check myself

    [–] Ratatouille ready to go for dinner tonight. Will be served over some bowtie pasta. narfnarfnarf77 1 points ago in slowcooking

    It’s such a shame though, to use something completely unnecessary, which will likely last forever in a dump somewhere, just for a bit less washing up 🙁

    My stats are pretty similar to yours, but you’re a wee bit taller - snap! Good luck, I’m sure you’ll smash it 😊

    [–] Chubby chick with shin splints narfnarfnarf77 2 points ago in loseit

    Hey, I’m in the same situ, since upping my miles training for a half marathon. From what I’ve read online, the advice is to switch to low impact cardio, like cycling, rowing, the ellipticals, etc., until your shins aren’t sore anymore. Don’t take pain meds and run on them - bad idea. Apparently we can then start building up the running again, not going too fast or too far 😊 Good shoes will also help, so your ankles aren’t moving about too much.

    [–] Tantrum Tuesday - The Day to Rant! narfnarfnarf77 2 points ago in loseit

    I know I shouldn’t complain about this but... there is an unlimited supply of free, high-quality chocolate where I work!!! 🙈 I did so well last week, but both yesterday and today I’ve taken my hummus and mange tout out of my kcal tracker, and replaced it with delicious chocolate! And I went over target by 150kcal today.

    This is why I’m fat! So much delicious food, just lying about for us to casually graze on! Ahhhhh!!

    Feeling happy! Looking forward to working out my weekly loss; it’s been exaggerated by my period weight at the start of the week, but I’ll take what I can get!

    I’ve switched from MFP to LoseIt - which I much prefer! It’s got better visualisation of your progress throughout the week, and I get a pretty congratulatory picture when I’m done logging each day! Was slightly over kcals one day, so I went slightly under the next!

    [–] SV Down 10lb. The most satisfying graph I've seen. narfnarfnarf77 2 points ago in loseit

    Great job!

    I’m inclined to get myself a fancy heart rate tracker type thing - to help see how much more I could push myself when running... I do tend to take it pretty easy on myself some days!

    [–] Any advice from people with previous eating disorders? narfnarfnarf77 1 points ago in loseit

    Hey! Fellow ex-bulimic here 👋🏻

    First - do you actually need to lose weight? Is your BMI in the overweight/obese category? If not, I’d suggest this sub isn’t the best place for you right now. Soz if you mentioned this in your post - I didn’t spot it.

    Secondly - I’ve found calorie counting helpful, because it takes some of the emotions and moral judgements of eating out of the equation, but please please be careful about competing with yourself to eat less and less, as you mentioned in your post. For me, I try to not eat over 1550 or under 1450; when I drop below 1450 I get cranky and find it harder to concentrate. Work out your TDEE, and find out what you need to eat - what your safe minimum is, and don’t dip below that

    Finally - I’ve found exercise really helps with my mood, my weight-loss and my relationship with my body. Look - how amazing that my legs will run for as long as I ask them to! My arms get stronger as I challenge them! My lungs and heart are improving so much and so quickly! Bodies are freaking awesome! I would recommend that you don’t count the calories you’re burning - just focus on running faster or further or whatever 😊

    This sub is filled with lots of friendly, sensible people, so I’m sure we can help you on your journey, one way or another! x

    Sometimes you just need your coping mechanisms, and it’s great that you’re now ready to move on from them 😊

    [–] Day 1? Starting your weight loss journey on Friday, 05 January 2018? Start here! narfnarfnarf77 2 points ago in loseit

    The gym is awesome! It’s amazing how quickly it’s just become habit for me, and not something I need to grit my teeth and force myself to do!

    You’ll smash it! 🌟

    [–] [SV] Double FREAKING DIGITS!!! GW1 Done √ narfnarfnarf77 1 points ago in loseit

    Well done!! I love your advice!

    I also work in kg, thanks to an Aussie boyf and a lifetime of being baffled by stones and pounds! I think each new kg I drop down to feels like more of a landmark than ‘losing a couple of pounds’, so it works for me!

    I do bake cakes in ounces though, or at least - I did! 😉

    [–] Wow cider was a bad idea narfnarfnarf77 2 points ago in loseit

    I’ve got a delicious bottle of Orchard Pig in my fridge, which I can’t create enough of a deficit to justify to myself! 😭

    [–] Daily Q&A Post for Wednesday, 03 January 2018 - No question too small! narfnarfnarf77 1 points ago in loseit

    I didn’t sweat much at the gym until I started really pushing myself, running on the treadmill. Sounds like maybe you have a couple of top gears you could work up to? ☺️

    [–] I’m down 56 pounds in a year!!! Whoop whoop narfnarfnarf77 1 points ago in loseit

    Congratulations!! I want to be able to post like this next year - wish me luck! 😀
