Monday Mass Movers - Weigh in for Monday 16th December

Please do not reply to this post until Monday 16th December.

Welcome to Mondays Weigh In!

Pineapple27 here, co-ordinating the weigh-in post for today. I host the Monday “Mass Movers” Weigh In thread on a fortnightly basis.

Whatever your results are on the scales today, please do share them with us if you would like to.

We ask that everyone respond to at least one other member, ideally the person directly ahead of you on the thread. Feel free to cheer on or offer support to as many people as you wish, on as many days as you like! Nobody complains about a bit of praise!

This is a busy weigh in day; I do try and acknowledge and encourage everyone who joins us – but please – if I miss you for any reason, it’s purely the volume of posts.

Feel free to share any details of your week that you like.

This is how it helps us all for you to report your weight:

Start weight -

Last week's weight (or date of last weigh-in) -

Weight today -

Loss/Gain/STS -

Badges

The Admin doing the stats today will update badges as they go so please be patient, as there's a lot to do.

Welcome all newcomers. If you're joining this weigh-in group for the first time today – WELCOME!! Please introduce yourself and share your starting weight and your initial weight loss goals. Make a note of your body measurements as sometimes loss shows as inches rather than pounds or kilograms. Keep that tape measure handy….

If you’ve not already seen it, then take a moment to read the ‘Welcome Newbie’ pack, which is a Pinned post (situated on the right-hand side of the homepage, or scroll right down to the bottom, if you're using a mobile).

What are your plans for this week?

As mentioned a fortnight ago, I’m away on my holidays at the moment in sunny Tenerife! Thought I’d just mention it again 😀 It’s been an amazing break - glad to get away from the election hype and the fallout afterwards. I’m here with my sister and we’ve had a blast, as well as rather too many beers and mojitos some nights, but on the whole I’ve managed to be fairly restrained, knowing that when i am back, there is Christmas eating to contend with. Thankfully Christmas is quite low key this year for us and food consumption will be “normal” most days. I have just a couple of family gatherings, but they are at restaurants where I will have control over food choices and how much I consume.

Today is the last day of our holidays before flying home and we have a boat trip planned. I therefore won’t be around much during the day to answer your posts, so please do look after one another and be sure to support your fellow Monday Mass Movers in my absence. I’ll be looking out for pilot whales and bottle nose dolphins! Members of a dolphin pod are very much like Monday Mass Movers. They look after one another. The picture I have shared is one that was taken on a boat trip that we did last week. I very much hope that we are as fortunate to see as many again this time around.

I look forward to hearing what you are all up to this coming week.

Please only use this thread if you're weighing in on Monday 16th December 2019 .

Stat’s for last Monday’s weigh in, Monday 9th December:

Total number weighing in - 29

Total number of replies – 203

Morning Pineapple27 and fellow Monday Movers

What an amazing picture. I love dolphins and glad you had a great time.

So last week I reported my son had chicken pox and a stressful week of binge eating I gained 3lbs. Experience has told me I can rein some of it back only if I religiously stick to my plan and incorporate some form of exercise.

Last week he didn’t go back to till Thursday so I exercised at home with YouTube videos. Lucy Wyndham-read she is great and I recommend her if you fancy doing any at home. I wrote my food in the MyFitnessPal diary and counted everything that went in my mouth.

Here are the results

Starting weight 11st 4lbs

Last week 9st 13lbs

This week 9st 9.5lbs

I lost 3.5lb I’m very pleased as I didn’t starve myself or anything just kept to the plan. Glad it was water weight so able to shift it and a little bit more.

Have a good week all xx

Wow! What a brilliant turn around! Well done to you! Just what I need to hear and hope I can use your fantastic example as a model for me this week. Numerous Christmas preparation errands which do create a challenge. Perhaps I shall have a look at Lucy Wyndham. I have not heard of her before. I wonder if your son is better. Have a good week.

Hello Pineapple27 and thank you very much for hosting.

What an amazing photo! Vey pleased to read that your holiday has gone so well. Sounds just lovely.

I explained to wa2un7 a month or so ago that I had bought some new scales. The new scales measure to the nearest 0.2 lbs as opposed to just the nearest 1 lb and give data on % fat and % muscle among other things. My old and new scales gave me weights a pound or so apart, so I stayed with the old scales for my weigh in while beginning to learn about the other data that my new scales provided. I weigh lighter on the new scales. Well, this week the battery on my old scales became flat so I shall now swap to my new scales. I really don't want to give floor space to two sets of scales.

So that is my scale update. Well this week has involved four celebratory meals including our first Chinese for perhaps 2 years. My weight went up, but the new scales give me the same weight today as my old scales gave me last week, so I shall take this as a bonus of scale swapping, but am hoping to lose the pound or two that this week's eating gave me, even though I tried on both portion sizes and choices. Obviously, I didn't try hard enough, so a useful reminder how to chose over the Christmas period.

Pleased to report that managed my 10km run last week!

My first 10km run in 5 months🎉🏃🏻‍♀️😊

Here's to a good week to all our team 😊🌸

And here are my stats:

Start weight: 8 stone 11lbs (25/2/19)

Weight last week : 8 stone 2 lbs

Weight today: 8 stone 2 lbs

STS

Total loss: 9 lbs

over61andstilltrying

Thank you. How are you doing with your running?

I didn't really compare the scales. Kept to the old ones for weight and the new ones for % fat and % muscle. Definitely better to just have one set of scales 😊

Good morning everyone and thanks for hosting Pineapple27. The dolphins look beautiful, they are such lovely creatures. Have a lovely last day.

Can I please apologise for not responding to the lovely encouraging messages I got last week. I’d just changed my phone and given my husband my old one so I had a lot of tech stuff going on.

My weight last week was 11st 3.4lbs and this week I weigh 11st 2.6lbs so I’ve managed to lose the 0.8lbs I put on at Center Parcs. It was so worth it. I’m glad it’s come off before Christmas. Good luck on the scales this morning everyone!

Wonderful post I love the point about the dolphins-touching and true.

Start weight 12st 10

Last weight posted 2nd Dec 11st 6

Today 11st 6

That's a stay the same

Well it's a relief. I was wary of stepping on this morning because a) the blasted scale won't settle on a weight (new ones ordered from Aldi) and b) I have not been able to make healthy choices and have stopped running over the last week which is not helpful. I'm just so tired!

So I'm really pleased to be the same as I was two weeks ago as I feared worse. I'm weighing in at my Counterweight appointment at 9.30 which will offer a double check although with clothes will be higher.

Hoping to make a few charges this week to move the scales in a favourable direction!

Wishing you all well today and on the week to come.

I can so concur with, "Hoping to make a few charges this week to move the scales in a favourable direction!" Too many Christmas preparation errands to fit in the running. I have decided if all tasks are sorted I shall go for 11km on Friday. We'll see. Just ran a meagre 3.65km delivering Christmas cards this morning.

Hi Pineapple27 thanks for hosting , thanks for lovely photo from Tenerife . Hope you got back safely and look back on the lovely memories you have made with your sister.

Well my week has been one of slow progress on the health front. The most comfortable position I have found is to lie in the sofa most of the time following my op just over a week ago.( can just hear my son in law thinking lazy beggar ) I can sit at dining table on my wonderful cushion my husband bought me last week. I am able to chop up the veg, trim the chicken pieces and make sandwiches from there so beginning to feel part of the real world. Don’t know how I ever managed to remember all my tablets before I set up the alarm on my iPad and iPhone. Got the idea from my daughter who sets her ipad alarm for the tumble drier.

Well here are stats for weight this week though I haven’t written anything down but have still weighed Most of my food.

Start weight. 15stone. 7 3/4 lbs ( Nov 2017)

Last week 10 stone 13lbs

Weight today. 10 stone 13lbs

STS

Total loss. 4 stone 8 3/4 lbs

Aim for this week STS or 1lb loss will be happy with either

Am venturing out today for a bit of retail therapy to our local mill outlet. My husband has booked me a wheelchair from the mill and my cushion will go with me, we plan to have a sandwich there and have a look round the stores

And then watch the 1940’s dancers at their tea dance in the restaurant on the top floor, most of them dress up in 40’s gear . We won’t stop out too long but looking forward to that very much.

Hope all Monday Mass Movers and the admin team have a lovely week.Sue🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄

Thanks for hosting Pineapple27 love the picture of Dolphins. NO PARTY this week. I seem to be hovering, but am quite happy as I will confess to mince pies, I just can't resist them so no more will be made until Christmas.

Start weight 134.5kg

Last week 84.6kg

This week 84.7kg

Gain 100g it's a blip.

So my plan is to possibly lose a bit this week and then STS over Christmas and New Year and celebrate the 50kg badge in the new year.

Good luck everyone.

Hi don’t despair with your blip this week. Remember what I always say, that was last week and today is the start of a new week. Love mince pies but can’t say I’ve had one in the last two years . Do indulge in a Christmas fruit slice with icing on made by a certain Mr K.........as I know how many calories and that’s my Christmas tea time treat. Take the box to my daughters and there aren’t many left so don’t indulge for too long.

Good luck with your plan for this week you can do it, Have a lovely week Sue 🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄

Hi All,

Glad you are having a fantastic break. Well done on everyone's progress!

Start Weight (16th Sept 2019): 89.5kg (BMI 30.6)

Last Week: 87.7kg

This Week: 87.6kg

Loss/Gain (this week): -0.1kg

Loss/Gain (total): -1.9kg

So a fractional loss but a loss all the same and I continue to go it correct direction. I haven't been very good at calorie/food tracking and have decided to give it a break until after the Festive period.

The scales are certainly not travelling with me over the next 2 weeks so we will see on the 6th January what effect it will have...

Since the 16th September when I started on this forum at 89.5kg, I have been 91.2kg at my highest but I've also been 87.1kg at my lowest. So it has been up and down; roughly 2 weeks down, 2 weeks up.

Heres to 2020, when I have a couple of special events and some dresses in my wardrobe I haven't been able to wear for a while and hope to fit into by the time they come around...

Oh dear we have very similar stats, and I also had a fractional loss this week. I've also gained then lost since I joined. And Im also not as effective as before with my calorie counting! Are you me? Lol.

Thanks for sharing your journey. Im wishing you all the best. Any loss is a good loss and it's a proof you've been making sensible choices all week, so stay put!

Wishing you all the best!

Good morning Pineapple27 and you gentle folk.

So far, so good. Been to one lunch date and two parties and was so restrained! No nibbles and the low cal vegetarian option in a restaurant and one small glass of wine.

I'm hosting a 'Thank you' session for fellow volunteers today - lots of mulled wine, mince pies and other wicked things donated by our local Sainsbury's, of which I shall not allow to sully my stomach ! Instead, I have made hearty, but healthy soups for us dieters.

Starting weight 217 lbs

Last week 203 lbs

Well - we have had our first snow which looked great on the hillside and didn’t cause any trouble on the roads - so far so good. It has been very cold though which makes me hungry! A big batch of soup has kept us going for lunches but I do enjoy baking and I’ve made mince pies, cheese straws and parkin (must be a Yorkshire thing) for various get togethers this week and tasted them but not too much 🤣

Last week 11st

Weight today 10st 13.5lbs

Loss 0.5lb

That’ll do fine! I’m in the 10s and I am staying here for the foreseeable future 🥳 Goodbye 11stones 👋🏻

I’d like to maintain over Christmas and I am going for the One MealADay approach.

Hi dear MMMs,

I've not been weighing myself for a few weeks. I presume I put on a kilo or maybe only a pound, no more. I've been eating things without proper cooking for a few weeks. My husband had a massive open heart operation which went on for over 9 hours. Since then he has been in post-operative stress with hallucinations, fear, paranoia and panic. I know this from previous surgery. He only calms down when I am around, so I am told. He even destroyed a bedside table in panic.

I spend about 5-7 hours with him every day. He's still in intensive care.

I haven't been weighing myself or even bothered by it. I am pleased to be able to keep up with some choir singing. Everything else just feels like too much.

So I wish you all a great Christmas period. I'll be back in Jan/Feb.

Caroline

I feel for you, Caroline. My husband also had open heart surgery with complications. I understand why you have to be around and it is so exhausting both because of your husband's needs but also the additional worry and emotional roller coaster. I'm glad you are keeping up with choir. I wasn't able to as we were in a different city for surgery. My choir buddies and friends were so supportive but answering texts and emails was exhausting. I hope your husband makes good progress and you can take care of yourself too.....not easy. I think weight is the last thing you need to bother with. Just come back when you are able. 💐🌺🌹

Caroline my thoughts and am sure thoughts from other MMM’s are with you at this stressful time looking after your husband after his massive surgery. Hopefully he will turn the corner soon. Having had experience of sitting in hospital with my son you feel in another world and just surviving from one day to the next is a big thing. Weighing yourself etc is the last thing you will do so don’t be too hard on yourself. Pleased you are keeping up with the choir singing. See you back here in the new year sending you lots of hugs 🤗 Sue 🎄🎄🎄🎄

Hello Caroline,

I have been wondering how you were and whether the medical folk felt your husband was well enough to have the operation. Oh! What a time you must be having. How special that your husband is calmer when you are near. I do hope the hospital staff are really good in every way as you go through this very difficult time. It is astounding what the doctors can do, isn't it?

I am amazed that you have managed some choir singing, as I can imagine that everything is on hold while you support your husband in any way that you are able to. I also hope that some folk are supporting you too and you are able to eat some healthy food and have some good sleep to help you with all you have to do.

You are in my thoughts and prayers and I do hope to hear some good news from you next time you are able to write.

Here is a virtual hug for you 🤗 and some flowers 🌸🌺🌸🌺

Well done for finding your way here, you really are struggling, does your doctor's surgery offer any help, most have a dietician attached who could explain the food types to you, and also to help with your confidence on line does your local library offer help, or I believe Barclays bank was running a scheme at one time.

This is my first time joining in on the weighing in post. I've just completed my first week of healthy eating

Start weight - ? Stone 2.8lbs

Last week's weight (or date of last weigh-in) - ? Stone 2.8lbs

Weight today - ? Stone 10.4lbs

Loss/Gain/STS - 6.4lbs Loss

Sorry about the question marks, I'm just not confident enough to add that bit yet.

Hi FabButFat and welcome to this forum. You will only meet people on here who always give support and encouragement. Everyone has their own weight loss goals to follow and if anything else is going on in your life people offer support for that too. Having recently had a major operation just over a week ago I have had loads of members giving me loads of support in the last week. People on this forum have become really good friends, friends nevertheless you will never meet but great friends . Hope you will return next Monday and be brave enough to post your weight on here. As moreless says no one is judgemental and feel sure once you do post it will be the start of a brilliant weight loss journey. If you still don’t feel brave enough it doesn’t matter still come on and let us all know how you are getting on.Have a lovely week Sue 🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄

I wont lie Im quite disappointed, I thought I had been very good but looks like I have not! Not just that but I still weigh heavier than 3 weeks ago when I joined! Even though my goal last week was to reach that weight!

Oh well. I will have to work a little bit harder and be more careful perhaps.

Hope everyone else is getting on better!
