I've never had a problem with chalk on the blackboard / knife against fork sounds, but when people pull a fork through their front teeth, that get me squirming.

I just spent 15 months working in audible range of a socially inept individual who:-

Hums fairly tunelessly about 75% of the time
Talks loudly enough on the phone that ear defenders were of help
Ate lunch at his desk with considerable crunching and munching
Fairly frequent and loud belching

By the time renewal time came round again I was happy to say thanks but no thanks for only the second time in 17 years as a contractor. It was that or spend a considerable time at Her Majesties boarding house for the excessively upset for damaging the bloke.

Congrats on the gig.

The guy sitting next to me eats a vast bag of vile-smelling crisps every lunchtime, slowly picking them out one by one it seems and making a munch, munch, munch noise like a cow chewing cud. :mad

I wonder if it would help him eat quicker if I grabbed the bag, stamped on it until the crisps were powder, and then poured this straight down his gullet. Just the crinkly noise of the bag is annoying. :bang:

Welcome back.

Weight update?

You just want to hear that I've failed dont you?

Well....I have and I haven't :)

I've got 4 stone off, and kept it that way for about 6 weeks now. I can't seem to loose any more at the minute (stress probably), so I'm concentrating on maintaining it until after the wedding. I'm really proud of myself for what I've achieved (my dress looks stunning compared to what it DID look like! I have a waist now too!) But I wish I'd done more. I'm a size 18 now (down from 26/28) but that's still way too big.

I want to shift another 2 stone by xmas, and a final 2 by next summer. Ideally. But I'll just take each little goal one at a time - 1st goal is getting through the next 3 weeks maintaining and surviving.


Anyway....enough of me...what I have missed, and how can I kill this chap opposite? IF YOU'RE READING THIS, USE PLASTIC CUTLERY YOU ****IGN MORON!!

Congrats, I lost 5 stone a few years ago, my advice on the maintenance is not to get complacent. It creeps back on unless you nip it in the bud.

Been there, done that. What happens is when you get sick of it, you KEEP eating like a b*stard and end up heavier than when you started.

You guys told me what to do ages ago.....eat less, move more. It's the only thing that works!

I'll always have a tendancy to over eat - that'll never go. I reckon I put my last 4 stone on through trying to give up smoking to be honest - each time I tried and failed I ended up being about a stone heavier...

So hopefully now that I've cracked the smoking thing, I'll never end up that big again.

18 from 28? bloody hell - well done sa! it is right that it should take time to lose the next lot. too fast is almost as bad as too much. mind you - i am not qualified to give medical advice blah, blah.

living the contractor life makes it even harder to lose weight - the constant change makes maintaining a steady diet and excercise regime really difficult. add giving up smoking and wedding preparations... grief - so, yeah - bloody well done.

good news about the new gig - is it local? i'm finishing up tomorrow - about blooming time after 14 months. fly out to the new contract on sunday for a monday start. hey ho. should keep me sweet until the end of the year.

when is the not so big big day? would you let esteemed cukers join together to get you a wedding gift?

Bloody hell!!! I didn't know you knew how to talk outside TPD!!! :)

Thanks for all that DS - yeah changes are hard to cope with. Routine is key in loosing weight like.
The wedding hasn't been that stressful really - but we've had our kitchen and bathrom done over the last couple of months too (didn't have worktops for the last month! That was a challenge!!)

Yeah my new gig is local - 15 mins from home, which is LUSH!! Crikie - didn't you want some time off?!! Esxcellent news on the new gig though - it's always a blessing, esepcially in today's climate! (Speaking of which, has anyone kept a tally of how many times "Credit Crunch" has been mentioned on here lately?) :D

Seems we are the only nation in the world who think not taking proper time to ourselves in the work day is somehow important. Then we whinge about our health, RSI, Eyes you name it - hey ho, I'll never get it.

Yeah OK maybe the odd cake or nibble through the day at your desk but lunch is sacred & should be taken well away from anything work related...including a canteen if possible, unless you enjoy watching co-sherkers chewed food get rolled around in their wide mouths like a cement mixer :D

Do us all a favour & lock this nutter in a server room & set off the gas!

In response to the OP, why not either get some headphones or walk away? If you're not usually allowed headphones, then put them on pointedly once the eating starts, and if anyone asks just say that you can't concentrate with all the noise.

Well, I decide to log in for the first time since the end of Feb (having been stuck firmly up my own rear end for the past few months!) and am now feeling like I need to review my eating habits and make sure my life is not in danger!! :wink

Although saying that, I don't bother with a knife and fork, I just grab big handfuls and shove it down my gregory.

I would say 'nice to see you back' Sally but having not been around myself, I wouldn't know if you'd been here or not! I removed my facebook account (decided I didn't like their privacy policy) so I apologise if you left me any messages that got subsequently ignored. But very well done on the weight loss. I still desperately need to shift about 4st myself and am just too darn lazy to do it.

On the up side, I bought a Nissan 350z and am currently being all smug at the chavs in my street. I was going to try and move house but that's now only worth 10p so I got the car instead. At least I can rent a garage and sleep in that if things all go a bit tango uniform.

Best of luck with the new job! Jammy git for getting a local one, I'm now doing the two-hour commute up to London each day (beats Swindon though!).
