Itís almost an unspoken thing amongst us men and women, but Iím guessing that at some point in time weíre all struggling to lose weight.
I started my diet this week after weighing myself. I was 17st and Iím only 5ft8. Shocking stuff, but Iím sure that we can inspire each other to better things.

The fitba' season's over so here's PP-IV prescribed as a wee bit therapy for us moaners until the new season starts.

Seen this on a few forums, usually a laugh, apologies if it's already been done on here.
Post the first word that comes into your head after reading the previous post.
I'll start it off.
What British authors do people recommend? I am looking to try different authors. It's mainly fiction I read but would be interested in people's opinions on any genre, both fiction and non fiction.
Looking to take the mrs away Friday 1st March and come back Sunday 3rd March , Anyone got any good advice where to go ? Wouldn't mind somewhere down South like Liverpool or Yorkshire or maybe even Newcastle , To be fair somewhere that's not a million miles away as it's only a short 2 day stay ,...

Anyone read this pish?
Gorgie is rightly proud of its footballing and industrial heritage ó brewing, distilling, printing to name but three ó and its tenements retain an authentic sense of a working-class community. Gritty, defiant, honest Heart of Midlothian FC symbolises what the district is...
At the request of Alfiembra, here's the Driving Pet Peeve thread for frustrated motorists.
So, to kick it off.......
When you are just about to get into your car in a car park some Dumbo decides to draw in tight alongside your driver's door despite there being empty spaces everywhere around....
Looks like Iíll be starting a new job before the end of the month, 11pm - 7am. Wondering if any Hibees out there have any tips on working nights?
Iíve done some night work in the past and I usually end up sleeping my days away, getting nothing done outside of work.
A couple of posts on the Holy Ground got me thinking about starting this thread. So, what music books have you read that you would recommend?
Iíll kick off the recommendations
Young Soul Rebels (Stuart Cosgrove) - the Northern Soul scene.
Detroit 67 (Stuart Cosgrove) - the first of a...
Amarone in George Street was the venue for my niece's graduation dinner. I wasn't overly impressed, then again I never really expected to be if I'm honest. Lows were;
Nine out of the ten mains being served together, the tenth person was told "we haven't forgot you,it's just not ready yet" It...
I was clearing out a cupboard today and came across 2 bottles of champagne that my wife & I were given on our wedding day 28 years ago.
They have probably been stored incorrectly but I wondered if they would still be drinkable or should just be binned.
The first is a Lanson Black Label Brut...
Recently our 2 cats (3 yrs old) have been brining more and more stuff in through the cat flap - not like they donít get fed!
Today was taking the biscuit.
Heard muffled meows from our bedroom - suspecting that one of our kitties had somehow locked themselves into a wardrobe or summit went to...
Really! What is the point?
I'm not a dog owner, never have been one, don't want the responsibility of owning one.
I understand dogs basically need more exercise than they're ever likely to get from humans taking them out for walks.
So what's this doggie in a pushchair malarkey all about?
Following on from the Beautiful Tracks thread, I thought of a few classical pieces that would fit the bill, but that thread went in a different direction, and anyway classical music is such a broad category I think it deserves a thread of its own. So, if you have a favourite classical tune or...
Has it always been the case or are today's youth more inclined to spend ridiculous amounts of money on Xmas presents, usually on over-priced pish generally used for status symbols on social media.
Back to work and lads and lassies in work rattling off their gift lists, Gucci bag for her, Tag...
This is a game I got from another forum.
I start by saying something
say:What is life
And then the next poster makes an acroynym out of last word of my sentence in response
say:Life is for elephants (but hopefully better:greengrin)
Radio 6 has inspired me to suggest this almost impossible task to you all.
I know it runs the risk of people posting things to make themselves look cool or sophisticated or whatever, but it might be cool to hear what folk have enjoyed this year.
So, What are your 3 favourite songs of the...
Anyone else not lifted a finger yet? Nae cards, nae presents bought. The Mrs has done the food shopping; leave everything to her :agree:. I just can't be bothered this year. I've finally become a grumpy old basturt; used to love Christmas, too.

Anyone done Route 66 or similar road trips in America?
Ive done a couple in New England and Washington/Philadelphia also Canada and me and the Mrs have really enjoyed them.
Weíre thinking about Route 66 April/May next year, all the previous trips weíve done were all pre-planned through a...
I love useless facts and information, let's hear everyone's.
I will start with a couple
Antartica is the biggest desert in the world
The day on Venus is longer than the year.
Have asked this question before, when are we going to get the Hibs.net banner updated to show our glorious cup win???
Got a reply from a mod last time that it was on the to do list but that was over a year ago.
Where's the wise money being saved nowadays for regular savings?
I've gone a wee while without listening to much in the way of new music, but there's been a spate of album releases I've wanted to check out lately for one reason or another and I've been pleasantly surprised.
Babel - Mumford and Sons: Develops their sound from Sigh No More and really cements...
A new game!!!
I will start by saying the name of a song, the next person then has to name a song title which uses a word from the prebvious title.
E.g Sunshine on Leith (proclaimers)- I'm walking on Sunshine
ill start - The Boys of Summer
(Try not to link words like "The"
always had a soft spot for, I guess what you would call educational(?), jokes. Jokes to do with maths and the likes.
best two I've heard recently
My dad once told me i had a lot of potential, right before he pushed me off the balcony.
(not so much a joke, but I like it)
In the past I have thrown away anything battery operated where the batteries have leaked-corroded and the terminals of the device have become covered in a crust of battery acid type stuff. Just had the same happen with my son's tv remote. I decided to Google a remedy and discovered vinegar on a...
I've got a mate who sleeps 4 hrs a day and is still a fully functioning human being. He swears the secret is to make sure it's only 4 hrs otherwise he's knackered the whole day. 4 hrs good 3 hrs or 5 bad.
Me? I work shifts so sometimes the alarm goes at 4am and sometimes it goes at 4pm but no...
Recovering from a slipped disc has lead to me watching some absolute rubbish but this brought a smile to my face.

Am I over cynical here? Electricity providers want a smart meter installed in our homes in order to save money by not employing readers
to go from house to house, sometimes several times if no one is in. Bills issued and collected by DD. Huge savings to the supplier.
Yet they want us to use...
Can you remember the joke he told about (I think) the wee boy who tells the Pope to F off?
I'm trying to find it on YouTube but no joy so far.
Has anyone read the whole six volumes of this novel? Often mentioned as the greatest novel of all time; an epic concerning love and loss, time and memory, the role of art to humans and the transience of life, set within the French aristocracy at the turn of the twentieth century. Not a Jackie...
Anybody watch this?
I saw the first episode was being shown on C4 last night. I'm on Episode 5 and it's brilliant.
Damian Lewis is excellent, as is Claire Danes. So far it's shaping up to be a well-observed take on a number of subjects in the CIA/post-Iraq genre which haven't been covered...
What a brilliant drama!
I've just finished series one and I'm blown away with how good it was.
Woody Harleson and Matthew McConaughey are outstanding and the story is compelling right to the end.
This is up there with The Sopranos.
This isn’t about your favourite films, it’s about the ones you stumble across on any given night and once you start watching, you know you’ll be in to the end.
You maybe weren’t looking out for it but when you are scrolling through the EPG you find it’s on and it’s an automatic press of the...
Out of interest, have the protests that are taking place in France this weekend been given much msm coverage in the UK?
Off to Berlin for the weekend for 3 nights. The Saturday evening will take care off itself as i'm off to see Hertha v Eintracht but any other recommendations for things to do and see, any neighbourhoods/districts outside the center worth a visit etc?
Will see Checkpoint Charlie,...
