You place the blindfold over your eyes and then eat your meal (once you've sused where your mouth is and poked yourself up the nose etc). Thereby shifting your awareness to how full your stomach feels.

I'm thinking placing said blindfold over ones mouth might be more effective LOL.

I've gained a couple of kilos, upped the exercise, hopefully gained a bit of muscle. Maintaining weight is harder than losing it, I've decided, because I don't know what I can and can't eat.

Kate - surely you could use the rowing machine to generate electricity?

Stepping on the scales told the story: 80.3kg vs. 73kg I had been before the trip [:I]

UPDATE: My weight is now down to 75.25kg which means that I have lost over 5kg!!!

Feeling pretty good about that with just over 2kg to go [^]

christams is over and 2.6 of what I lost had found me again. I started back at WW last week after 4 weeks off. I am happy to report a 1.4 loss this week, I also bought myself a home gym as a birthday gift to me. problem being its in about 100 bits and hubby is working 12 hour days at present so can't put it together for me and I'm no good at that sort of thing. The dog is getting a lot of exercise in the evenings when its cooler.

And here I was thinking I was the only one who lost weight over Christmas* well done to those who did manage it.;) That time of year seems to be rife with people trying to stuff rubbish food in your face.

*Accidental weight loss, my bike broke down on the way to my big Christmas dinner, pushed it 1.2km in the baking sun in full leathers, my boots were squeltching and my pants were loose by the end and I missed getting any food all day. I recommend old Italian motorcycles to anyone considering weight loss...

What's that I just stepped in?

Broken ankle - wondering how much it will affect my weight. People say you should of course carefully watch your intake at such times. Quite right. I am carefully watching it, watching it increase. What can you do. Using dumbells is not doing much! Though using crutches feels like good exercise. Moving from the waiting room at the hospital to the room they removed my caste in was like running a marathon. They had to leave me to recover for 10 minutes.

Using your large muscles is key - ie upper thigh and butt :D Hard to do without an ankle, might be worth a visit to a PT or Pilates class to get some tips. Your Physio should also be able to help. Cut your processed carbs also.

I presume everyone knows that doing lots of exercise increases your muscle mass? And you know that muscles weigh more than fat, don't you? So, if you plateau at some point, it's likely to be your muscle mass overtaking your fat loss. So don't worry about it. Its more a case of working out where your weight is shifting from and going to that counts. My arm muscles and leg muscles have increased greatly since we bought the farm. Thankfully my back muscles are stronger now as well. I've given up worrying about my sagging stomach. After having twins as big as mine, I'm guessing that only plastic surgery could fix that area of my body and that's not financially feasable.

45 hectares between Whangarei and Paparoa. Registered Dexter cattle, Wiltshire sheep - black, white & pied.

grovelling big time at present. My intentions are always good but the outcome often isn't. I need to get a grip!
