Hi Marina,

thanks for your good wishes and well done on your weight loss so far. I hear you about getting back on the wagon. I have bad days too especially the evenings when I seem to get the munchies which is my downfall.

Are you following any particular diet?

hiya no im just using myfitnesspal to count calories and make more sensible choices with food also if i have enough calories leftover i will have a chocolate or glass of wine-as when i try to cut it all out thats when i tend to binge. a typical day is granola with semi skimmed milk lunch is usually salad or soup or eggs and dinner is just a smaller portion of whatever we eat as a family-snacks tend to be hummus or crisps that are no more than 100cal or a yogurt treats if i have enough calories are small glass of wine or 2 finger kitkat or 5 chewy sweets if i have a sugery craving. this seeems to be helping so far

Marina, your plan sounds great. I am not good at tracking (as proven by past failed diet attempts ) so this time I intend to go day by day, trying to stay within a calorie allowance for that day. I am going to eat what I feel like but stick to the calorie allowance.

I have already given up chocolate, sweets, ice cream, cakes, biscuits and crisps since the beginning of June. It was soooo tough at the beginning but now I think I might be able to stay off them for good.

Gonna try to get the exercise in now while baba naps.....fingers crossed she sleeps till I'm done!

Thanks for popping in; it really is great motivation for me.
