  1. Back on the wagon again

    I have decided that I am not allowed into a Supermarket for the next few months! All my shopping will be done online. I am also going to start mindfulness again to try and stop mindlessly buying cr*p. I know that when I am at home I don't fancy cake/chocolate but as soon as I step inside a supermarket I can't resist buying it and then of course eating it. It's as though some sort of wall appears in my brain which keeps out any rational thoughts. So, I am putting a ban on all supermarkets until ...

    As far as I'm concerned afternoon tea was a roaring success. Yes it was P3, but I didn't pig out, I only had a small amount of the prosecco, went to my exercise class later and then had an evening P2 meal of mussels & prawns in garlic butter plus the small tub of Rodda's clotted cream that was in the doggy box. Hurrah.

    Iíve had a really long day at work and was worrried that I would be hungry and might end up grazing. I started the day with chicken breast. It comes in a pot from Morrisons and is 100% chicken with nothing added. Itís not particularly exciting but I do find it filling and often struggle to finish it.

    Lunch was king prawns, some mini cheese blocks and NLY and dinner was a chicken ...

  5. A message to my future self

    Having never even so much as kept a diary I am at the age of 52 (today) starting my first blog.

    I'm doing it because I have found keeping a track of my progress by posting in threads really helps and I want to be able to look back at my entries if and when things get hard.

    I have since the age of 19 been on a diet. I have tried many different types including the usuals like SW and WW. One diet I tried was called 'Stop The Insanity' by Susan Powter. It was a diet ...
