Hello Melody, Ree and anyone else who reads this forum thread!

I live in Kendal, Cumbria, on the edge of the Lake District - a beautiful place to be but often cool and wet. Today the news headlines are about scorching temperatures and heatwaves but it's a maximum of 19C and raining here. Not that I mind really - I'd prefer sunshine but not if it came with 32C temperatures! At least I can still run and go for walks in the rain.

Thanks for the hint about looking at the Slimming World forum, Ree. I'm not a member but would be glad of recipe / meal advice that uses ingredients more readily available in the UK.

Hi Melody I too am on several mainly US teams they are all very supportive, I felt I neded a uk tem too, the sp recipes for instance have recipes containing unknown to us ingredients. Does anyone go to Slimming World? There's a team for those members, I do not go to their meetings but try to follow their eating plan which is excellent, worth looking at or join the team. Ree

with bean recipes you can usually use any sort of the same type bean but don't forget the soaking period, they all taste slightly differnt so experiment till you find the ones you like the best

Hi-ya!
I cannot believe it is April already! So far so good. Feeling confident, light and in control.

We are dealing with some drama but I am not letting it weigh us down. I keep telling my fiancee, we are only in control of our actions and our behavior. As long as we are good people and do what we know is best, then we can do no more. People in our life just moan, a lot. He and I are glass half full kinda people, so it has been hard dealing with four adults that are glass half empty people.

My fiancee and I are still on track. We are going to California in July to visit my family and friends and he has committed to loosing 15lbs. He is doing so well (his vice is bread and biscuits) with moderation. We are a great team. I am truly blessed to have a positive, supporting partner.

Hi folks
Needing to get myself sorted out and to loose quite a bit of weight
I have been a member in the past of this and various other weight management programmes but willpower / staying power just isn't there - I can't afford to drop into that vein again - this weight HAS to come off
Usual problems - can't find cloths to fit, not happy with myself, added to which next week I turn 50 and I'm peri-menopausal
I'm not weighing myself at present but going to go on how existing cloths fit - or hopefully soon won't fit - and when I can get into something that no longer fits I'll visit the scales and start the second phase of this journey
So please all help from you here will be great - please don't let me falter
Going to aim for 1200-1500 calories per day and 500 minutes of exercise per month.
Ethne

Hi,
This might go slightly awol as it's the first time I've posted (only just joined and trying to navigate around...)

My new discovery is butter beans. Amazing mash substitute, if you blitz them with a light drizzle of olive oil (lemon olive oil works really well) and pepper. Great hot or cold. You might need to play with the consistency and add a splash of milk. emoticon I think they're pretty low carb. I'm hoping so, anyway...

Hi! I'm just finishing my first week on SP and have slipped up this weekend! Ooops! Although I have realised chocolate isn't my downfall (as I thought) it seems to be carbs! Any ideas for healthy replacements??? I am already using wholewheat pasta and pittas! thanks

Hello everyone! My name is Jean and I'm from the North of England, near Manchester,I'm 72 years young I've been on sparkpeople a couple of times, my weight goes up and down,! I made a fresh start, from 16th jan and trying to get back to basics, fresh food, plenty of water, logging everything, more exercise.I have problems with bingeing. on sweets, and chocolates also cakes, Which is stupid, i know, as i have diabetes, and an under active thyroid to contend with, Somtimes i do good over the day, then binge in the evening, I came back to SP because, I think tracking my food and exercise can help me, I'm 11 st 2lb and I want to get down to 10-7lb stone as soon as possible. Perhaps by March...........

Lifes to short................

Morning all - as to the previous question - do a search for foods entered by other members - and you will find a huge number of English foods added by us all - as we all depend on this can everyone ensure they add foods in when they cook / eat them, and rather than putting in 1 serving - please put it in as per 100 gms - that way we can all add whatever number of grammes we use - a serving, or "a tomato" means nothing - if you weigh it then add it as grammes or ounces - that way you get a better calorie intake view and can see what your various items are (protien, carbs, fibre etc)

Hope this helps! Have a great day!
