Minum, to use the [ list] tag you either do it with just [ list][ *]point 1[ *]point 2[ /list] (without the spaces after the open square brackets) which gives you bullet points:
  • point 1
  • point 2

or alternatively you can create a numbered list with [ list=1][ *]point 1[ *]point 2[ /list]:
  1. point 1
  2. point 2
or an alphabetised list:[ list=a][ *]point 1[ *]point 2[ /list]:
  1. point 1
  2. point 2

This is only for lists, not for tables, though. I have seen reference to some proper table tags in phpBB but they don't seem to be enabled here.

Thanks. I was originally trying to copy and paste my weights and measurements from a Word table into the monthly weigh in thread, but realised that wasn't enabled, then tried to get a list of observations formatted, and couldn't do that either!

Double :grin: :grin: Seen a PB on the scales this morning, and thrown a bra into the recycling bag that's too big. Now down in the "at least 5 years ago" weight territory

So hard to know what is causal, and what is coincidence, isn't it? I will keep feeding back my results and experience of NEAT.

I'm doing really well on my NEAT campaign - today I have sat down for 30 minutes for lunch, other than that I've been standing and walking since 7.00am. I feel its becoming a habit. Yesterday was harder, as I was in the office, but I did plenty of trips to the printer/water cooler etc, to try and keep moving.

Sorry that you put weight on. I hope this week is better. Sounds like you are doing all the right things. Since you have used MFP I assume you have been weighing your food. I really underestimated how much I was eating till I physically weighed everything.

Well done Minum! I think ken hit the nail on the head with the NEAT info, by not sitting when we can stand has been making a world of difference. You WILL reach your goal! :)

Just read this thread this morning! I asked my boss if I could get a standing desk and he said yes! It's ordered and will arrive next week!

Beyond excited!

Let me know how you get on with the standing desk Lori - very keen to hear !

Doing 2 unheard of things today - tucked my top into my trousers, and I'm wearing a belt - don't think I've worn one for years. Brill :grin: :grin:

Well, all was going very well, lost 4 weeks in a row, and really seeing a difference, then disaster struck, I badly scalded my legs with a cup of tea, so the NEAT went out the window for a week, as the pain then itching was so bad. And lo and behold, I gained that week :curse:

But legs recovered now, I'm back on my no-sitting rule, and feeling good again. And today I'm wearing size 10 head to toe ! :grin: :grin: Lovely little silk Monsoon top, and Kaliko cropped trousers, both from Age UK charity shop. They are getting my 14s a fast as I'm shopping from them !

Yesterday I did a little experiment, liquid fasted all day, then went out for the evening to a restaurant opening, then on for a curry, which when I added it up this morning, was around my TDEE for the evenings indulgence, so I guess thats a good way to manage big nights out, if I have more than one a week.

Off to Waitrose now, to get the ingredients for a 4th of July celebration with the family tonight :cool:
