    ..... sat next to me in work and I'm saying "NO!" for the second day running :)

    For me its the best way. Its better to have none, than eat 6 and still feel like I could eat plenty more. None for me, thank you very much. I'll hopefully update tomorrow that I'm still saying NO! Its not all gloomy, I share a minature green and blacks as an advent chocolate (2 syns for a half) with my hubby every day :)

    Anyone else want to celebrate saying NO to roses/quality street/heros etc ???

    Congrats on your will power, it's a great feeling when your in control.

    .....I am celebrating this week as I have managed to go through my * week without eating any choc......I am like you, once I start I can't stop....so I didn't start. It's amazing Didn't even think was possible lol.

    I'm really Looking forward to weigh in tonight now because I've been so good and determined this week....because I'm half a pound away from my half a stone sticker . So hopefully.

    Keep up the good work :)

    Like you I can't stop at 1 or 2 so I gave them up. I have had 2 chocs in over six months and I don't miss or crave for them.
    They can sit next to me and I am not even tempted.
    The craving does go away..
    I have a saying now... "I don't like chocolate as it shrinks my clothes!" ;)

    I have told myself I am not touching the roses until Christmas day, they're my faves, then I shall go mad on the day and eat so many I will feel sick. ( I will probably have my consultants voice going round in my head telling me they are 2.5 syns each, I will try and ignore it!) Then I'm going back on plan boxing day, hopefully I can repair the damage by new year. :p

    Yes I'll join you on that!!! I'm a nurse and we've got a constant flow of tins of QS and Roses on our desk from patients/relatives, not to mention all the goodies staff bring in etc! I'm enjoying saying NO to them all!! It's shocking how many syns is in just one!!!

    I have been stocking up on all sorts of Christmas treats for over a month now to take advantage of the offers, we have 3 x tubs of pringles, nuts, xmas pud, big tins of roses and quality street, shortbread, 3 packets of jaffa cakes, stollen cake, gingerbread biscuit things and ambrosia custard all at my eye level when I open the cupboard and check me out not even been tempted.

    I have had remarks by my friends like "how the hell can you not touch that" and it does make me quite chuffed to think ive not even had the urge, I feel so much more in control than ever before. Christmas is going to be the odd naughty thing and a lovely lunch - enough to feel all special, but im certainly not going to be silly and undo ALL my hard work.

    Luckily as I have no kids (apart from my boyfriend of course) the flat is just about free from treats and I won't be getting any in. When I go to my mum's however... BOOM! :D
    On a different note I went xmas shopping at the weekend and was offered the following freebies to try:

    Posh chocolate
    A mince pie
    Champagne
    A cookie
    Some Bailey's flavoured butter icing :drool:

    I refused it all! I am a saint ;)

    Well done everyone ! Its great to know I'm not alone in resisting and also its great to know lots of others like me cannot have just 1 or 2 ! Come on, keep it up and we'll make it another day without delving in the tin :D

    Good luck for the next few weigh ins and I know you'll all be getting the fab weight losses you deserve (me too please if the weigh in fairy is listening!) xxx

    I love Quality Street especially the toffees and caramels, and i am having them...occasionally. They are 2 syns each. I can stop at one or two. If i was to deprive myself completely then i would just throw the towel in cos i cannot live the rest of my life feeling deprived.

    Our consultant told us to imagine that all quality street/roses etc were just pieces of dog muck wrapped in shiny paper. Since she said that, I haven't been able to get that image out of my head, and I haven't been tempted yet. Don't know how long it will last though....
