Re: Lots of Parsley

Thanks for the no-water tip, that makes life much easier. I've always done it in ice cube trays & it's never crossed my mind to do anything else. :-D

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

{rofwl} Linda!

I've stayed the same this week, which is a bit frustrating, but I'm trying to keep in mind that I am still half a stone lighter than I was two weeks ago, so I'm happy with that really. (and I did have lunch out last Sunday)

Re: Patchwork - One for Ali (and anyone else interested)

I'm another Kaffe Fassett fan. I have one of his quilting books, and the colours are just stunning, a real visual feast - I've never made anything from it yet, just enjoyed looking at it. I got his autobiography for Christmas, so it's in my pile (have only looked at the pictures so far!)

Re: Lots of Parsley

Chopping it ready to use, putting in ice cube trays , topping with water & then freezing works well. Once it's frozen, you can pop the ice cubes into bags and just use as needed.
You can also make and freeze pesto - there's a parsley pesto recipe here

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

I was thinking last night Wendy - it might be that you are already at your 'natural weight' - part of what the book says, is that for some people, the natural weight (the point where it is easy to maintain) isn't the same as they think it should be. So it might be that the reason you're stuck is bec...

I would start with your direct debits list and go through and delete absolutely everything that's a non-essential.

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

The website gives a fairly good idea I think. The first phase is basically only eating Meat Eggs Yoghurt and Vegetables, for 5 days. My friend has lost a similar amount on phase 1. I think it's one of those things where you need to read the book for it to make sense though. I'll let you know how I g...

I'm officially back on the wagon :-D
A friend told me about The Harcombe Diet - I bought the book & have just finished Phase 1, 7lb lighter than I started :)

Re: Anyone tried an eco shower head?

We had a free one as well Steve, and had exactly the same experience. BUT ... I passed it on to a friend, who loved it. So, different strokes for different folks I guess.

Re: I'm glad there's no such thing as a stupid question

You can do whatever you like. I started out with it in a little pot, but now I just scatter a handful or so every now and again. They will take what they need.

They lasted surprisingly well, especially as it wasn't particularly cold at New Year. I think we put them out at about six, and they were still clinging on by midnight - melting gradually, but they look pretty as they melt.
