Re: Dave Clark Five Documentary

Watched this and was talking to someone at work about it today - like you I had no idea they were so famous in America .. they always looked a bit too clean and smiley for me! Good programme though, he was obviously a very astute businessman even in the early days.

It does save money when you plan all your meals for the week - being organised does help with losing weight and saving money as well!

Re: Positive about sorting my weight this time...

I'm a bit slilmmer now Kate but I've only lost about 10lbs since then. I had to maintain my weight for 3 months as part of the weight loss thing I'm doing (just to prove I could do it because most people always put the weight back on) :-D

Re: Slow Cooker Question

I do tend (if I have time) to sling everything in a pan first and cook it a wee bit before transferring it to the slow cooker - just seems to make it a bit more appetising if you brown stuff off a bit first. I must say I've used my slow cooker a lot this year and it's been a bit of a revelation. Gre...

Re: Positive about sorting my weight this time...

TBH I still know I'll have to have a knee replacement some time soon so it's been a really good motivator. My brother has been doing the same thing for a couple of years now and he's lost ten stone!! However he goes running a lot now which I think really helps and men can just eat more! I cant let h...

Re: Positive about sorting my weight this time...

Just thought I'd jump in with my progress as I've been doing this healthy eating lark for getting on for a year now. No calorie counting or any of that - just healthy eating - healthy plate - half veg/salad/1/4 protein/1/4 carb is really the basis of it - been doing a lot more home cooking - the slo...

Re: Positive about sorting my weight this time...

Hello everyone - I've not been around for ages - life has kind of got in the way recently - just to say I'm scared of getting on the scales and depressing myself after Christmas - anyway I'm back on the straight and narrow from yesterday - I AM NOT GOING TO UNDO MY GOOD WORK from last year.

Re: Positive about sorting my weight this time...

Not posted on this thread for a wee while - just to let you know the programme I'm on I now have to maintain for 3 months before I start losing weight again. The idea is to learn how to maintain so I dont put it all back on again. Going ok - although it does make you think - I find it harder to main...

Re: Latest crochet project

Re: Latest crochet project

I'm off to Yarndale at weekend too ... very excited ... really enjoyed it last year and spent a fortune! The ripple is a bit difficult at first but once you get past the first few rows its easy peasy - it's just getting the hills and valleys right at the beginning - then you've got the pattern memor...

Latest crochet project

Just thought I'd share with you crocheteers. This is a ripple blanket I've just finished - it's the Lucy coastal ripple blanket in stylecraft dk. Yarn cost £25 which is pretty reasonable - lovely acrylic yarn. The cost in wool would be too much! http://i1223.photobucket.com/albums/dd514/julie283/P10...
