    Scary!! You are saying pretty much what my brain was thinking as I drove home from my first weigh in today!!

    I wonder if this is a "newbie" thing? The devil vs angel scenario?

    I've been saying that all day too

    But:

    1) It was having that odd "treat" day, which led to another "treat" day and another and another (devil) ... which got me to the weight I am today (angel)

    2) I completely-utterly-totally understand about the wanting a favourite old "treat" (devil); but, I'm telling myself (angel) that the SW plan has opened up new "treats" ... stuff I either haven't eaten in years or things I have never even tried before!
    If I've never tried it before, I'm asking myself why not? And it is probably something to do with expense
    So, tomorrow (because I really have not given into temptation today and bought that bottle of wine, or that fish supper - and boy have I been tempted! ) I'm going to buy myself a fillet steak to cook for my dinner (and it will cost less than the combined total of wine/fish supper and won't contain one syn!
    3) Well done on your 1lb loss it's not to be sniffed at


    Some days I've been full of enthusiasm and think it's a breeze (and I'm only on Day 6!) but, I've had my 2nd occasion of wanting to break ranks and run for the hills (into my old habits).

    The fact is, nothing is stopping me from gobbling a pizza, downing a bottle of wine, scoffing cheese and biscuits. After all, what is SW going to do? Imprison me? Give me 50 lashes? Put my photo on billboards with a demeaning description as a caption? Of course not. They'll take my subs whether I lose a lb, gain a lb or stay the same (well, for a time, at least).

    What is stopping me is ... me! I remind myself of all the reasons I walked into my first meeting in the first place; and those reasons have not altered.

    I usually allow myself one off plan tea per week. I have a think about what I really fancy at the start of the week - Indian, Chinese, pizza, burger, restaurant meal etc and calculate the syns. Then I do weekly syns and save what I need for that day. It's worked well for me so far as I always look forward to that meal and dont feel deprived. But it's literally one meal, not a whole day off plan.

    Holy cow, this comment just gave me an epiphany or something! I've been given so much fantastic advice (in this thread and in other places), but honestly, that's the best thing anyone's ever said. I've had a fairly bad night SW wise and I'm certain that if I hadn't read that now, I'd have gone on to eat more tonight. You just reminded me why I joined SW, why I want to lose weight, why I don't want to eat the chocolates that are a few centimetres away! I might even write it out on a sticky note and put it on my desk! Thank you, so much!!

    ...I realise I sound crazy, but I'm now in a ridiculously good mood!

    This is what I've done since I started... I've had the odd temptation in the way, sometimes I've enjoyed a few extra syns, sometimes I've resisted but each time I've reminded myself why I'm doing this... why I want to do this... why I need to do this. I've made a commitment to myself that I will lose the weight and this time I am not going to give up until I've got there and more importantly stayed there! My consultant told us last week there is a reward for maintaining your goal weight for a year... I want it!

    I also keep a spreadsheet of my weight loss and over the weekend I added a column to put in the cost of the classes (I buy countdowns). Having a figure of what I'm investing in myself is helping too!
