Chocolate Cake Anyone?

Well all out there, yesterday was my birthday I was officially the wrong side of 50. Where have all the years gone I ask myself? My lovely daughter brought me a chocolate birthday cake so not to be rude I had a thin slice with everyone else, I don't quite know what has happened to me but I actually didn't really want or enjoy it, all I could think was thank goodness I have enough calories left today to include this in my allowance. My point is although I have dieted and lost about 2-3 stone before I have never actually felt I was achieving anything hence putting it back on again. This forum and 12 week plan is totally re-educating my mind into thinking differently and I look back to 19/5/16 just 5 weeks ago and thank god I found this forum. I am feeling more positive than I have for 4 years, I am learning the true worth of what we eat but more than anything how I saw food and indeed ignored what it was doing to me. So a HUGE thankyou to Lowcal and the fab5ers and indeed all of you on the forum for posting your thoughts problems and successes you are all a fantastic bunch hope we can all continue to help each other on our journeys. Onwards and downwards guys and galsπŸ‘β­οΈ

  • Happy birthday for yesterday Itsbab hope you had a lovely day πŸŽ‚πŸŽ‚

    I've done what you have too, lost a few stone, then re-gained it! But not changed for life. I'm lucky in that I've never really liked chocolate cake, but a bar of chocolate, that's different! Well done for only having a small slice. Agree this forum and the 12 week plan helps re-educate, I'm on the wrong side of 70 so it's never too late to learn and I am changing eating habits with the help of the Fab 5ers and all the other good folk on here πŸ˜„

    I feel exactly the same way as you about this forum and it's wonderful members. We rock! :)

  • Thanks so much Moorless the video made me laugh so much, if I had eaten paper chain garlands I probably wouldn't need to lose weight lol. Still aiming for that 3lb off on Monday!

  • You can do it Bev! :)

  • It's funny isn't it, but I feel exactly the same in my head this time, am making connection between eating and weight gain 😊 Also feel really positive about long term success 😊 Well done and happy birthday Itsbab 😊

  • Thankyou were are tuning into the same mind path, keep up your good work together we can win!πŸ†

  • A healthy body is just the best birthday present you can give yourself! Well done and enjoy your 50's - it can be a great time of life!

  • Happy birthday! You have more control than me, I gained several lbs over my birthday! πŸ˜‚

  • Hi Osiris275 I am a woman on a mission and no amount of junk food is going to stop me!!!! I have spent so many years being fat like a burst balloon I'm on my way down.🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈

  • I am aiming for the lighter, healthy body DartmoorDumpling and I hope to get there by next year 2017. Unfortunately I have had half of my 50's which were not a good time but now I am determined to have the other half in a better mindset. Hope you are doing well and the weather is shinning for you in Devon you lucky person to live in such a beautiful place🌞
