The SATURDAY weigh ins 😍😍😍

Hi everyone,

I'm Claire and I will be looking after all you lovely Saturday weigh in people this week.

How has the week been for you so far? Has anyone been struggling and need a little help with food or moral support or just a plan old kick up the jacksy 😜😜

My week so far has been good apart from tonight. My hubby and sons have gone to watch football so though great, a nice peaceful bubble bath for me. All has gone well until I've now got my pjs on and went to get the milk out the fridge and what do I spot .... My milky bar bear that was in my Christmas stocking... Before I knew it I was chomping away at his head and never even thought twice about it. I only stopped cos my tooth started to hurt and I though OMG what am I doing 😩😩😩 I've doomed the diet. Well I'm not punishing myself too much as it was only a blib and did stop myself from eating the rest.... Which is a HUGE improvement for me πŸ˜‚.

Has anyone had any good meal ideas this week or ate something new and thought mmmmmm will have to have that again?

Hugs Claire xx

It's so easy to accidentally put food in mouth without thinking about it - must be hangover from being a baby :-) This week I discovered Skyr, a low fat high protein dairy product from Lidl - great with fresh mango and not too high calorie pudding.

I'll be weighing in on Saturday this week but may have a small loss - I hope (weighed in this morning as decided to begin eating sensibly again from Sunday 1st January).

What a lovely visual story!! I am VERY impressed that you only ate the head, top marks!

Hi Linda,

Welcome to our Saturday weigh ins xx

Ooooo oh a low fat pudding, your my kind of gal to post a hint like that lol. I have one near me so will pop in this week and have a look for it.

Awww it wasn't a lovely visual sight, me shovelling in the Bears head in like a mum who has a secrete stash of toffees and trying to eat them before the kids see you. I'm sure it was eating it with sounds effects as well lol. (I'm trying to write this on the QT as hubby is back home and don't want the tut tut tutty that I've cheated on our diets, especially as I'm making him starve lol.)

I'm also writing in just over a weeks weigh in as I started before Saturday.

Just asked and you can't add a picturemid chat. So glad you found it for your first post. Enjoy your first weigh in post tomorrow xx

Hi Claire, I've always preferred weighing on a Saturday so I'll join you at the end of the week. Sounds like you had a lovely evening and well done for putting the bears body back!

I had a nice tea by accident tonight, was making chilli but accidentally put in passata with basil (didn't realise that's what I'd bought) and ruined it, we don't like basil anyway and mixed with the chilli spices was just disgusting! I'd already put sweet potatoes in to bake and we were hungry so I topped them with microwaved frozen spinach with Philadelphia cheese stirred in and it was yummier than expected so I'd definitely do that again πŸ˜€

Hi fran x

Welcome to the "Saturdays" oh don't you wish you were just like the real Saturdays πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

Oh no don't you just hate it when you have a plan and it goes to pot. I keep tasting it just by some miracle the taste improves or maybe I'm just trying to convince myself it has. Lucky u had the spuds as a back up plan and you got some tea. Iv never tried cooking with philli, see different meals made with it but never tried them. Think that will be my plan for the next few weeks, make a meal with the philli cheese.

Hi sue,

Welcome to the Saturday weigh in with us girlies x

Now I'm wondering why u was raiding the Christmas cupboard, was u empting it, checking dates or just plan old hoping there was something yummy to eat lol. I would be doing the latter πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. Don't know if it's the thought of just starting a new diet or that we have just got over eating at Christmas that makes me pine for food that is definitely not good for me. It's having the strength to say no to it and I'm getting thereπŸ‘ΌπŸ».

I love home made soups and love making them but one thing Iv never tried is smoothies, not even shop bought ones. Don't know what it is about them but I can't get my head round adding fruit with veg to make a drink.

Claire xx

Smoothies don't have to have veg. Depending on what you put in them they could have the thickness of an ice-cream milkshake (I.e if made with lots of underripe bananas or ice cream) or could have the texture of an 'orange juice with bits' if made only with watery fruit. But smoothies can be bad as they are an easy way to quickly ingest lots of sugar without the need to digest the structure of the fruit within - its easy to drink more than one small glass.

Hi Claire thanks for starting the weekend weigh-ins! I haven't posted a weigh-in this week cos Monday's got closed and I haven't found any more weigh-ins. Shall I just take this week as a restart?

I would like to join the Saturday weigh-in

Hi brads27 and welcome to the forum.

Of course, you are welcome to join. On Saturday morning, just watch out for the weigh-in thread in the newsfeed and record your weight there.

Check out the Welcome Newbies post in the pinned posts section (to the right of your screen on a pc, bottom on a mobile) - this contains some great info for starting out and navigating your way around the site.

It's important you eat the right amount of calories for you weight and height. Check out your allowance on the NHS BMI calculator as everybody's allowance is very individual.


Take all of your before measurements and maybe a photo.

Consider joining some of our challenges as they are fun and motivating.

We also offer a Newbie badge for the first twelve weeks, if you would like one, let me know.

Best of luck and looking forward to seeing you around.

I am new to Saturday weigh in,where do i enter my weight

Hi Claire,

I'm a newbie and just registered now. I put my start weight in the replies section of weekly weigh in for Saturday. I hope this is right?

I cooked a Chicken Korma recipe from the Hairy Bikers website and it was the first time I discovered how to cook chicken without frying it in a few tbls of olive oil or veg oil. The recipe is for 4 people and 293 cal per portion. Amazing and tasty meal. I'm going to cook it again and adapt it with different spices for other flavours.

Well done at stopping at the chocolate as I would have then raided the biscuit tin, the chocolate box and the crips.

Moppy recording my weigh 18-10 down 2lb that will do Thanks everyone

Hi Claire I am replying to this in the hope Admin may see it I was away this weekend so missed my weigh in yesterday I have weighed tonight and have maintained again so not bad as I find being away from home difficult Had to eat out all weekend Went to a Persian restaurant on Saturday with son husband and grandson I had Naan bread which was delightfully light and a Persian chicken curry which was too hot for me . Today at lunch time went to a Boston Tea party eatery in Birmingham so had poached egg on toast I had salad on journey home plus nuts and apple I picked up some slightly salty popcorn last week which is filling healthy snack Good luck anyway
