Hi Tony:D

Join the club I have also put on weight but heigh ho at least we are not smoking any more

I was underweight in may when came out of hospital am now overweight at about 101/4 stone I know in my case some of this is because not as active as i was

I still have my weightwatchers lists so will go back to that will let you know how it goes

I would put them on here but don't know if moderators would approve what do you think or could put on as attachement maybe

Keep the faith

love margaretxxxx


I've gone from my normal 10st 8 or so, to just over 12st.... and from a 32" to 34" waist.

Not good.

However, I read somewhere that after 6 months the metabolism settles down - so I shall carry on regardless and see what the situation is a bit further down the road. I'm not eating so much now, so hopefully things will settle and then return to normal.

If not, I shall get myself off down the gym!


margareth,,cant see any problems putting your weighwatchers lists on here,,give it a go,look forwood to seeing them,,need some help and stuarth does as well :D keep the faith tony

Tony and BB:D

I can put on here and try it who knows what will happen [i lost over 3 stone this way before}Can I just copy and paste or would it have to be attachment please tell me how to do it If moderators complain I will certainly send to Tony by private message if he wants me to didn't know we could do this thought could only use forum


What are you fishing for Tony, Fishing is one of the things I'm worried about without fags. I can't bring myself to go fishing this early in the year, sitting in the cold doesn't appeal to me, although it's no less comfortable than sitting in this bloody office, seems like it's about 30 degrees in here :mad:


hi john,carp tench,,were i fish there are some very big lumps,,i find if you take lots of gum,,,chew till the tastes is gone,,then repeat,,you will be ok,,give it a go,get back to nature and enjoy the fishing ,,you will have to go sometime so why not now,,it would be a big test for you ,,when i am fishing i could smoke 15 or 20 fags on the bank,,dont think about them now,, so john take what ever you take and go for it,,

jim, you like to fish dont you, have you been lateley,you should you know,,.

you lot keep the faith tony

Thanks for pointing in the direction of this thread BB. Will lay off the pork scratchings! but figured i would not care about the weight for the first month and am now walking more. Do like the look of your pond/pool! My son loves fishing in the Thames.


Bless you Tony, maybe just cutting out the food that is full of fat and high in calories will help.

I have strangely found the opposite and have lost half a stone so far but i think that is because i only drink water now.

Good luck Tony with the diet as well now.

Wow BB what a huge pond you have. Have you got any photos of it full of fish?




Mmmmmmm Food

I have a bag of boiled sweets wherever I go as substitute fags still.

That alone cannot be responsible for the 2.5 stone in 3 months.:o

I am back on the food wagon last week. We should post weight stats along with smoking stats.....



yep 2 months no smoking and about 2 stone overweight.

in truth i feel its nothing to worry about

i think i will start the gym but not for at least another month to get easy with the idea of not smoking.

smoking ciggies does curb your munchies so there is a small weight gain i think when giving up the ciggies.

again personally i feel giving up smoking is my prime concern without the added stress of a diet plan at the moment.

and yes 11 stone when i smoked and 13 stone from today.



I know from my parents having a pond that they can be hard work to keep clean etc, well done you :)

I would love to be able to come home and sit out in the garden on one of our warm evenings we get in the summer drifting off to the sound of running water, there is something very tranquil about a garden with a pond, i would love one but cant atm, maybe when the kids have grown up a bit.

I agree tim, get the quit well and truly under your belt before you start thinking about diet plans.

Well done on 2 months not smoking :)




I feel sorry for my kids, since I quit the sweets in their sweet tin have somehow mysteriously disappeared ;) .


Hi BB Tony and anyone interested

The points are to do with your weight

The chart gives the weight you can have for that day fot instance 51/2 oz mince beef = 5points

The amount of points you can have daily depends on your weight

IE you weigh

12st you need 21 points daily

11 st 20 points daily

10st 19 points daily and so on

but if you are say 10st 8lb you would round up to 11st and so on but if say 10st 4lb round down to 9st and so on

any one over 12 st just add 1 point daily

under 10st take off 1 point daily

you will notice that there is a FREE VEG SECTION

this simply means that you can eat as many of these as you want per dayhgope this makes things clearer for you.

MY copy at home is done in a table which helps but for some reason won't copy and paste over

love margaretxxx:D


Hi Jim

How you feeling this fine morning. Good i hope.xxxx


thanks for that margeret,,will give it a go,and let you know how i get on,,

jim keep looking at your pond,wow,so back to nature,,off fishing on saturday with my son in law,cant wait keep the faith tony


Hi Guys:p

Glad to have been of help if someone could figure out how to get a table on here it would maybe look a bit clearer I am going back on WW myself don't forget you can eat as much free stuff as you like

When i was on this before I used to sit down and do a weeks menu's at a time and found this helped to start with

I also printed of a copy of the list and pinned it to the food cupboard made it easy to consult and also served as a reminder


Love Margaret


Tony, I would go fishing but the only spot to fish nearby is a small lake and the only thing I've ever had from it in the winter is Pike. Some good tench, roach and rudd from spring onwards though. Used to do a lot of bream fishing with my son on the River Bann but it's been cleaned out by 'migrant workers' over the last few years, shame as it is/was one of the best rivers for Bream in Europe.

Nice pond BB, puts mine to shame its about 6ft by 3ft, my son has about 9 fish in it, would love the space to have something bigger.


john,i am going fishing over the week end,,let you know how i get on,,nice to just relaxe,,all the best tony



thanks for link had a quick look but will have longer look later today

love margaretxxxxxxxxxx
