Struggling
Thanks again to everyone who has posted and the ideas are great. Some might work for me, who knows but I'll have a go. Like the Michael Jordan quote too :-)

Yes, the food diary is great, as long as you post everything and are completely honest. I'm trying to do a -1000 calories food v exercise deficit, but it doesn't work every day. I didn't have a chance to exercise today so it was only around 900. Still, that's 2 days down and I'm in control. Must stick with it. Re puddings, when I lost weight before I used to share a pudding (when we went out) but I now get by mainly on Weight Watchers frozen desserts. There are a couple of delicious ones with around 170 calories. I struggle to cut this sort of thing out completely so these are a compromise. Anyway, thanks for the reply, you made me laugh, especially re the big girl panties (yes, I am a woman). Do you need and buddies?

Thanks for the replies everyone. It helps to know that there are people out there who understand. Sunkeeper, no I guess the pleasure of the Sunday meal wasn't worth the feelings afterwards. Will have to re-think that one. Sergeant S, I with you on the not being able to eat 1 piece of chocolate, if I start on that kind if thing I would eat the lot. Need to avoid those sort of triggers for now. Can't imagine never looking at the dessert menu though, but we'll see. I lost almost 3 stone 3 years ago. I watched my Dad dying of prostate cancer at the same time as having chemo for lymphoma myself, so some of it was down to the illness and stress. I did make sure that I ate healthily though and actually felt at my fittest for years, even during the treatment. Ironic really. However, I lost nearly all my body fat and looked gaunt. I put 1/2 stone back on and felt great at that and looked better too(147lb). Since then it's crept back on over a couple of summer and Christmas holidays. I've now booked to go to France in July, so my challenge is to be back to the 147 by then. I know I can do it, just need to get through the first week and then I'm usually ok.

I'm really struggling at the moment. Loose a few pounds and then have a bad day and put a couple on. I just can't get in the right 'head space' at the moment. I do lots of exercise but unless the detrmination is there then I think that diets just don't work. I let myself have Sunday off and a nice pudding with the family (only day we all eat together). That bought the sugar cravings back and I ate too much sweet stuff yesterday and picked all evening. I must just eat my 3 meals and then have nothing because as soon as I do have even a little snack, even fruit, I just want more food. I will do better! Oh, can I ask something, can anyone see my weight. I think it says that I'm not sharing it but if I look at my profile it should be set up to share. Any ideas anyone?

It's Monday, whole new week ahead
Thanks. I'm a bit of a chocoholic so I'll do my best (let you know next week how I did). Did have an Options hot chocolate earlier but at 40 calories that doesn't count.

To get through the week without having a day where I give in to the call of chocolate!

Hairy Dieters Cook Book
I've flagged those to make too as they sound great. Also have my eye on the quiche and one of the coconut curries. Might make the tangle pie tomorrow if I can trudge through the snow to the shops to get some of the bits that I need.

Hairy Dieters Cook Book
I bought it yesterday after a friend showed me a picture of her Chicken and Ham tangle pie. Can you recommend any of the recipes?

Summer holidays
Good idea. I also have a photo of me when I was heavier than now, that I hate, so that could be another to put on the fridge. I was ill 3 years ago and lost almost 3 stone, but it's been creeping back on and I want to loose it again.

Summer holidays
The only time I've really lost weight is when I've had the determination to do so. If I manage to get in the right 'head space' then I'm fine. Just having trouble getting there right now. I do 4 classes a week, so exercise isn't a problem. It's persuading myself that I don't want chocolate and crisps that is the biggest one. So far so good today though as I had a salad, yogurt and lots of fruit for lunch. It's the evenings that are my worst time.

Summer holidays
The holiday is booked and now I just need the motivation to get that summer beach body. Keep starting diets and keep failing so thought I'd give this a try. Good luck with the diets all you people out there
