    Do you save money every month?

    Thank you and yes I agree completely with what you are saying, I was actually debating whether or not to post as this is a thread primarily about saving but this thread hit home a little. It's great to hear so many positive stories about people doing so well but also if my situation happens to...

    Do you save money every month?

    I've learnt the hard way about money, last 3 years I've been paying off massive amounts of debt that I built up over 15+ years whilst I buried my head in the sand. The banks and credit cards just kept on giving and I never thought about the future as that was always years and years away and I...

    Awesome stuff, like you say it should be more than doable in that time frame. Seems very positive in here which is good :)

    Yeah I’ll be in trouble if I ever got a desk job haha. Sometimes it can be a hindrance though as I can get so hungry that I just crave calorie dense foods and end up overeating junk. That’s why I’m hoping this healthier way of eating will curb the cravings. Lot more time spent in the veg aisle...

    I'm 5'11, how tall are you? I enjoy running which is my primary exercise, was doing around 20mpw but slacked off recently, back on it now though. I still ate the same and started gaining weight which you can see. I have quite a physical job with heavy lifting and I'm on my feet a lot, depending...

    This is where I'm at right now, I must say it's much more enjoyable tracking everything I eat on MFP. Definitely helps me to make better food choices when it's there in black & white. Eating between 2300-2500 calories a day, might still up that if weight loss becomes too extreme due to exercise...

    Sorry should have phrased that better, I meant when you are feeling ravenous what healthy things do you eat in place of all the delicious things you just mentioned haha. Just trying to find a way to beat the cravings. I used to eat so much fresh mozzarella as well it was brilliant :D I did...

    Also intrigued as currently dropping my carb intake so will be interesting to try some different meals. Also, do you guys have any go to foods that you eat when you just want to shovel in any type of junk food? I just want to buy high calorie foods and binge right now since eating healthier and...

    Definitely, it's a mindset I've never had and always say to myself I'll just eat better or a little less tomorrow and before you know it you've gained x amount of lbs and have even more work to do. My goal over the next few months is to drop my weight down to 12 stone (76kg) and see how I feel.

    My weights been creeping back up over the past couple of weeks so time to nip it in the bud before it gets out of control. New food weighing scales have been purchased as my last lot broke and I never replaced. I will be weighing & tracking everything and cutting out alcohol at home as I just...

    Organising Photos

    Just to update I used PhotoSweeper as it already had a link straight to the Photos library, ran an exact photo scan and 27k photos down to 12k lol. Next job to delete similar looking photos taken seconds apart and screenshots. So far I'm impressed how easy it's been although I've not used Photos...

    *** Big Fat Weight Loss Thread ***

    Oh I do agree and like I say so much of it makes sense however long term it would just be too restrictive for me personally. It's not something I'd be able to maintain throughout my whole life which is the exact reason I stopped it. I am very tempted to go back to trying a lower carb diet though...

    Going realistically vegan

    Yeah that makes sense, I have tried switching to brown rice but I just can't get on with it. I've just got into a bad habit of using that as my simple carb source for dinners.

    Sorry to hear that also, it's great to hear that you are so determined to fix your health and not let it rule your life though. Regarding the low carb stuff, everything I read about it makes so much sense but I just can't shift the feeling that eliminating an entire macronutrient can be healthy...

    Going realistically vegan

    I eat rice most days, what is the reasoning to actually cut it out? I know white is refined and that’s what I have but is it really that bad for you?

    Keychain password manager vs 3rd party

    I agree with you and as soon as I trialed it (in 2012 here) I bought it right away. I just have such a big bear about subscription based apps that I’d rather jump ship. I understand they need an income but I’d rather pay a one off fee each major update like the good old days. Perhaps I need to...

    Keychain password manager vs 3rd party

    Looks like I'm running into some issues still being on High Sierra (latest OS I can run) as it crashes on opening if I install from the App Store. I can install manually and the program works but looks like I won't be able to have a safari extension as it just points me in the direction of the...

    Keychain password manager vs 3rd party

    Good idea, I’ll give it a go. I have loved using 1password over the years with such simple integration but it’s all changed for the worse, in my opinion anyway.

    Keychain password manager vs 3rd party

    I'm currently with 1password but thinking it's time to change as stuck on version 6 due to the monthly pay scheme. Is it easy to switch over to bitwarden?

    Organising Photos

    I'm well overdue a new Mac but funds are tight so I'll just be having to make do for a few more years so I can tell this is going to be arduous lol. I've started transferring folders over but I have noticed duplicates within Photos already. Is there a folder all files are kept that I can run...
