      July Army Thread 2019

      Thought I'd get the rabbits up and do the pinch punch thing early in up-over land.............haven't had half an hour to myself in the last couple of days in the nicest possible way. I am overtired and can't sleep and the man that can in the bathroom is arriving at 7.30pm. I've got next door's keys to use his facilities.


      @satz123 welcome home, lambie. Was wondering about SIL........was it last year she had the shakes on the plane?
      Rosie's prolly in a proper sulk...........I know that Bess left with anyone else won't 'speak' to us for a few days if she'd left with other people............usually people that I share DNA with and have no police record.
      @byebyebridgetjones............I can't do on-line food shopping. There's still a 500g of Flora margarine left in a basket from about 2005.
      Get your CV out there..........any chance of re-training and being paid or a lucrative paper round. Is he by any chance a graduate? We used to squash them when I was in the bank. Had no idea how to do a tea and coffee run and that's not a good start.
      A shout out to @NoSugar.....you were marvelous with my low potassium/kidney stuff last year..........I've lost pounds recently (on top off all the weight I lost last year) due to the stress the last few months and now I need another favour...........any idea that doesn't contain too much fat & sugar????

      Waves and love to everyone for a lovely July. I know its a big month for me and the memories are flooding back.........but more of that later

      Evening All,
      He is a PhD student as well as working for us (to his own schedule, as it suits him) JC. Part of the protected species programme as my colleague says. I rather like to call him a 'delicate genius' if you were ever a Seinfeld fan. Lazy, privleged twat fits too.

      Not long now JC until your big day.

      Glad you had a great time Staz and good to see you back in one piece. Have you ever had a conversation with the SIL about her drinking?

      Mary I am far from malnourished. I'm afraid that's only the beginning of what needs to come off my rump but I'll get there without the need for hangover food.

      Hello all. Glad you had a great time. Sorry about Rosie, that must be a worry to you. I would not like to leave my boys if I could help it.

      Hope the bathroom goes well Jax.

      Bridget your boss seems to be a right dick. I think graduates can tend to be a self important just because they can memorise shit and get a certificate to prove it.

      Off work today as cannot go back until I see optician and can put my contact lenses in. See him wednesday. I will work Weds to Fri this week hopefully as I really do not want to take sick leave as I will be taking it from next week. Op is monday and this time next week will all be done. Been prepping and cleaning like a mad woman. Mr S has had a taste of carer over the last few days and has been very good

      That is such a tricky question, JC, because we all are different and it sounds like maybe your metabolism has changed. Most women around our age find it harder to lose weight than it used to be but some people go the opposite way.

      Carbohydrates (especially sweet and fatty ones like desserts but non-sweet carbs, also) generally lead to weight gain for a couple reasons -- they set up the hormonal environment to favor fat deposition (and no body fat burning) and they tend to be the foods that trigger overeating. The combination of those 2 things can pack on the weight. But --- some people are just very resistant to weight gain. No matter how much or what they eat, they burn it off. My husband and son are like that. Plus, it sounds like you are a stress-noneater, like me. So, if you're stressed, you aren't likely to continue eating past the point of fullness of anything, no matter how tasty and dopamine-triggering. When I am stressed, I can barely force myself to eat at all.

      I'd encourage you to eat Real Food with emphasis on carbs like potato, yam, other root veggies, fruit, etc. I also would eat other real foods like meat, eggs, dairy foods, etc. But, it could be that your "set point" has changed and your body is going to defend a weight less than it used to be. Some people reading this will not think that sounds like a problem but I've been where you are and found it much harder to force myself to eat than it ever had been not to eat. Especially if you are eating small quantities, the food should be as nutrient-dense as possible so that you get everything your body needs to be healthy. Whichever way a person is trying to go in terms of body weight, the more overall health can be the goal, the better. All the best to you and I hope you have a fabulous time at the wedding. xx, NS

      Re: July Army Thread 2019

      Never had talk with SIL re drinking - apart from her saying she will give it up soon - that's not a conversation I'm about to et dragged into.
      As Mers says it keeps me on the straight & narrow watching her - knowing & remembering how all-consuming it was.
      I am an evil cow I know .............. but makes me happy that something in her life is less than perfect - does that make sense ?
      That I have done something she cannot do ?

      As the one who did most on farm - MrS twin was left land & house from parents - so she's loaded.
      Her perfect daughter with 4 beautiful grandchildren & huge house
      And now her perfect son just married to the perfect ( "an angel") wife in a free gaff on the farm. FFS !!!

      Jealous ? Bitter & twisted ? - Yes yes & yes

      Doing it my way

      .... the joy of being sober never gets old !!

      What a problem to have @JackieClaire.
      I gained 7 lbs on holiday. I eat well but binge on nuts ( covered in honey & seeds) & chocolate & dessert & bread while the others were drinking.

      I never put on an ounce on holiday when I was drinking

      That sounds to me like a fake Facebook persona. I bet there is a lot she doesn't let others know about, in addition to her drinking, which she isn't even able to hide too well anymore.

      I know several beautiful people with big houses and perfect children who are miserable. I was never beautiful but I know people thought I had a problem-free life because that is all that I ever let anyone see -nice house, nice family, good job, no worries... And because I didn't overdrink in front of others, even that was hidden. And I was miserable to the point of not caring whether I lived or died.

      Looks can be very deceiving. Be proud of you and let your thoughts about her go, Satz. Maybe someday you'll be able to help her. xx

      Evening everyone. Welcome back Satz, hope Rosie has forgiven you. We had a dog once who went on dirty protest every time we went away. Appearances can be deceptive, you never know what anyone else is going through. You have every reason to be proud of yourself and it is up to her to sort herself out.

      Have no doubt that you will sort young upstart out Bridget, no better woman. Glad Mr S was such a good carer. This time next week it will all be over. Wish I had your problem JC, some good advice there from No Sugar. Working full time next two weeks so busy busy.

      Re: July Army Thread 2019

      Just going to be short as I'm zorsted after listening to all the hard work in the bathroom. Its looking good so far and they're so tidy.

      @NoSugar.....thank you, thank you, thank you. Hit the nail on the head with the stress 'non-eater'. Looking back I have never turned to food when upset/stressed/unhappy, even as a youngster. I'm a UK8/US6 at the moment..........my normal fighting weight is UK12 and I look scrawny.
      For the first time in a long time I'm enthused about food.
      Might just set up a grazing platter as I get over-faced with too much on my plate. Christmas day when I look at the piled plates it makes me feel nauseous.

      I was usually three-quarters loaded if we went out in company so a lot of people thought I was a proper light-weight.

      Honestly will talk more tomorrow when I get time.

      Love, hugs and goodly thoughts to all.
      It could be worse, I could be filing.
