    Well done ladies, you can keep us all honest and away from the sugar. Sometimes a no nonsense approach is the only way (unless you are dealing with a hormonal teenager ).

    How does someone even start using Meth, she must have had some unconventional friends.. very sad.
    I can be a bit obsessive about running, but so are all my buddies, so I let it pass (but not them, I have to be first, obviously )

    Satz, the dress will be hanging off you by July, YS will have months under his belt and they'll allow at least 50 at the wedding!

    Anyone hear from Molly since earlier?

    Re: Army garrison - February 2021

    Good day to you all!

    Just wondering how Molly and the hound are going with the wait. Must be some word by now looking at the time stamps.

    Re the diet thing. I'm feeling a bit givey uppy at the moment. There's too much else going on anyway to make a real fist of it.

    I was in the shower, where I do most of my epiphanies, and I reflected that I have been on a diet since I was 12 years old. Looks like it hasn't worked. None of them.

    I'm just sitting here looking at my book shelf.
    So, we have - WW, Weight Watchers, Atkins, South Beach, Fat Flush, Zone, Liver Cleansing Diet, Dukan, Throw out the Scales, CSIRO x 3 books, F2, Phil McGraw, Protein Power, Food by Susan Powter, Clever Guts, Fast 800, The Fast Diet, Food Allergies and Intolerance, Stop the Insanity! (Indeed), Fats and Figures, F Plan and F Plan Plus, The Body Shaping Diet, Low Carb Made easy, The Mediterranean Diet, The Complete Mediterranean Diet, 4 Ingredients 1,2 and 3, The Low GI diet, LCHF, What the Fat? Paleo.


    Jesus people! Do we not even know how to EAT any more?

    Re: Army garrison - February 2021

    Good morning everyone,

    Bridge agree, my bookshelf has a rather vast array of ways to eat too. The only thing I have found that works for me is to remove sugar and check portion size. I cannot bear counting stuff like points, syns, grams etc and the more I do that the hungrier I get. It was Mr S birthday last week and we both had about a weeks sugar binge with choc, ice cream and the like. Both felt absolutely shite for a couple of days after. Even Mr S who I did not imagine was capable of such feelings much less admitting them said he had headaches from eating rubbish. As we both have addictive personalities I think the occasional sugar binge has replaced our al lifestyle. Agree though, there is always something lurking to get those addiction juices flowing again.

    Running is one of the good things imo to get addicted to Mary, well it was until my joints gave up

    It sounds like the pup is settling in nicely JC! Bet he has made a huge difference to your life getting you out and about. Walking really is the best for mental and physical health and having the company of a lovely four legged pupper is just the icing on the cake.

    Mr S aunt was admitted to hospital yesterday with pnuemonia, no idea if covid related as she tested negative a few days ago and she has had the vax so hoping all will be well with her.

    What wonderful news about YS! Sounds like your tough love had an effect and got his head back in the game. I hope so. The worry about someone else's addiction is worse than coping with ones own I think.

    How did Joe get on Molls? Fingers crossed all is well and the infection has beat a hasty retreat

    Great to see you back Starts.

    Something I have noticed with MrS is since the pubs closed he too has acquired a 'mad' sweet tooth. He would NEVER eat chocolate in excess before last March.
    He'd say "I don't like chocolate biscuits - I'd prefer plain."
    Never ate dessert.
    NOW - all the goodies bought are for him. Especially chocolate biscuits.
    He ate a whole box of Milk Tray chocolates to himself over 2 nights.

    All this is unheard of previously. Isn't that interesting? I think it's more than boredom.
    Maybe @NoSugar can explain why when alcohol is taken out of the picture this happens to everyone? Lifetime habits change over the months ?

    Mers I wish I was addicted to running instead of sweet stuff. I think I'm a bit long in the tooth now to start running - but I do walk for 60-90 minutes a day - every day except weekends when I'm chasing elderly ladies - who move pretty fast - out the door on a rollator when they want to
    It's so very sad that some of them have memory loss but otherwise are perfectly able to get around. All they want is to go home.

    Being confined for 12 months without seeing the outside world has taken its toll. There is something so unnatural about it.
    Two in particular who were over 90 - spirited & funny are now crying messes .

    Breaks my heart - so I walk them 'round the car park and it's like I'd given them millions.

    Hey Satzy Not really been away just had nowt to say really.

    I feel for the old and the young. I think this situation has fecked them both royally and its criminal the poor old folk who are stopped from seeing their families.

    At work a lady who trained me 10 years ago is retiring this week. She is 65 and feels she has been managed out of the business. They put her on a productivity report and started counting and monitoring her calls. She has worked for the company for 12 years. It has worried me enough to make a plan for myself. I am 58 this year so one of the old ones. There is no way I am going through the indignity of anything like that so have decided if all goes well and I am left alone, I will retire at 60. If they make things difficult for me I am gone. No way am I going to go through anything like that. It made me feel quite worried so I have done some sums and if the worst came to the worst I can survive on my savings until I get a small pension when I am 60. Huge relief

    Rich was the same. He was always a savoury person before giving up booze. Now he can be found lurking around the biscuit isle and I constantly have to drag him away

    Re: Army garrison - February 2021

    Morning and waves to the universe,
    Just got my invite for a covid jab. Got to faff on booking it on-line and just waiting for himself to look over my shoulder when booking......and also I'm overexcited and would probably book it for March 2030.

    @starty.......lovely to 'see' you. I shoveled sweet stuff down my neck when I stopped drinking on top of real food. Piled the weight on. Over 3 stone (30 kilos). Tried to find something google about it but it kept leading me to re-habs.
    Luckily I found Slimming World.

    Get out while you can. Life's too short to be under that pressure.

    I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow........on the phone. Its a review to see how I'm doing with the antidepressants I've been taking since Bess died although I would like a chat about my tingly fingers and the fact I can't fully turn my neck.........but I think that may be down to Mikey being so strong he's pulled both my arms out of their sockets. I just trot beside Mr. JC.
    My cousin's husband is a surgeon and splattered with all sorts although he's nigh on a year behind with his list because of covid.............he's had a right go that GPs are hiding behind closed doors.
    It could be worse, I could be filing.
    AF since 7/7/2009

    Morning everyone . Delighted you are getting your jab JC and good luck with your online appointment. Nice to see you Starty. None of us have much to yap about but provides a bit of variety to hear about other peoples dogs and equally exciting lives. Iím going on two walks today. One with dogs, one with friend. Thinking of you Molly and Brit.

    Off now to do the dreaded grocery shop.
