Back to Calorie Counting
After doing SW for a while and not doing too well have returned to CC and joined Rosemary Conley yesterday.
Put a stone back on over the last few months and decided it must stop now before it gets any more and so found a local club and went along yesterday.
I lost over 5 stone a few years ago Cal counting so decided to go back to my roots - I know I was eating too much on SW not matter what they say about eating as much free food as you like, it did just not work for me so here I am hoping to lose it the way I know better.

Measured Breakfast cereals at home and had to do others at MIL's and she does not have any scales so guessed the fruit and veg cals.
Kept away from samples at Ideal Home Exhibition except to try some soup and seeds.
1200 for day and 156 left from last 2 days so not over by many - quite pleased I kept away from the samples. Was picked from the audience (with quite a few others) and turned down the chance to give opinion on 5 different wines and then drink them. Any other time would have been at the front of the queue :D
Quite proud of myself this morning - went into Thornton's to get my MIL's chocolate and said no to the freebies they were handing out - that is a first.:)
