    Hi there, I am nightshift tonight aswell (Hello) !!
    I work 11pm til 8am at the mo but in April we are getting changed to 8pm til 8am :-(
    I had my weigh in tonight so I have just sat and ate the gammon steak, potatoe wedges and mushy peas (delish).
    I have homemade chicken noodle soup in with me for through the night as I usually get hungry! Not sure what I should be eating. My body isnt used to this lol. What shift do you work?
    I drink lots of water on nightshift then pee like a racehorse lol :)
    Do you work your day from 12pm til 12pm? I am not sure how to work this x

    hi,

    I'm also on nightshift at the minute. 9pm til 7am.

    Been awake since about 4pm, just had coffee and some SW quiche.

    Going to make a lasagne and will take some of that to work, will also take fruit, boiled egg and probably a couple of alpen light bars too.

    I also drink more water on nightshift, and also more coffee.

    Its my first lot of nights on SW so will have to see how it goes on weigh day on thurs. I get weighed in the morning so not sure if I'll lose.

    Good luck
    K xx

    i work 7 straight shifts in a row. I was meant to be back shift last week (starting wed). On thursday, the girl that was nightshift (meant to start at 11pm) called me to say that she wasnt feeling well AT 8.15PM!!! I couldnt get anyone else to cover so I had to stay on! I worked from 3.30pm till 8am the next morning, was knackerd. She has not been back since so all my backshifts got changed to do the nightshifts. I did 6 in a row and then I had 1 day off and now doing another 8 straight nights! I am so tired!!! Roll on 7am Sat morning !!!!

    I finish at 8am and then i go to get my fat jiggled about for 10mins before I hed home to bed lol (it is a vibrating machine that I go to every day, helps loose the inches and the cellulite)
    I can sleep on until 5pm or sometimes even later. When I go to bed, i struggle to get back up. Went to bed today at 10.30am and I never got up until 6.45pm.
    Will be up earlier tomorrow night as I have my Zumba on a Wednesday night!

    Its totally naturally, I tried dying it a few years ago a more auburn/red colour but prefer my natural colour. I hope I take after my mum, shes 65 and has almost no grey hair at all

    ur welcome! Yeah that is the vibraplate's. You just stand on the machine and it wobbles all the fatty bits of your body for ten mins. You dont hv to do anything. I have lost 5inches from my bust, 2inches from hips, 1inch from waist and 2inches from top of thighs. I def think it is helping with my weight loss aswell. I have had 14 shots on the machine and I paid for the 30 days. Works out at £1 per day, I luv it !!!
