    Hi KazzyH4
    I'm Gem and into losing weight by healthy eating and optimum nutrition BUT I also fess up to an illicit relationship with chocolate and alcohol. That's not to say I spend my life stuffing my face full of chocolate and getting Brahms and Lizst (?) but I enjoy so I allow in small quantities and not all the time. So don't feel bad about it just don't get carried away (or out of the pub!)

    Yep Kazzy. I think that's just about it. Deprive yourself too much and I've found self-righteousness and satisfaction gives way to more negative thoughts and positive attitudes shift llbs. Just be honest with yourself about your intake and you should be able to compensate for it ok.
    Think beautiful thoughts

    To think beautiful is to be beautiful - You radiate from the inside out. Keep smiling - everyone will wonder what your secret is

    That is very true! Its hard to feel beautiful when you know on the outside you look horrid and subordinate.

    Depends what diet you are on I guess. I imagine that if you are on a VLCD then sniffing wine gums would knock you out but I still drink when I want to and it has no adverse affect on my weight loss. The only thing that stops me drinking is my job!

    Hi Kazzy. Glad I made you smile :). If love changes everything, love yourself a little more every day and you can move mountains (and I've got mountains to move I can tell you - ha!). Give yourself a hug :hug99:
