    Hi Herts -- Do you do anything crafty? Can you knit, sew, scrapbook, etc. I tend to mix it up - a little mending, cleaning, tele watching, scrapbooking, etc. (I have been shopping on line -- I want to find some boots.)

    Hi Herts -- What do you watch?

    I am thinking of having a hot cup of bullion -- as I am feeling very hungry right now. I some low salt, so it should be okay.

    Drink lots of water - always helps to fill you up - watch a really intense film with a shake? Never ever watch a food programme :)
    Good luck!

    Okay -- I had the low sodium bullion and feel much better now (left over LL product).

    However, I better go to bed -- not only do I have busy day tomorrow

    -- I just bought 3 pairs of boots on-line! Oh MY!!! They were on sale... two different ankle boots and different colours, and my brown knee boots need to be repaired and might not be worth fixing. They will be my Valentines Day Gift as we won't be going out to eat.

    This is out of character... I better watch it. I might be substituting Shopping for Food!

    i guess we are all different and we all need to find our stress relief away from food. it works sometimes but not all. mine is exercise.

    Professor Layton has been my saviour :p I love my consoles anyways but they have been put into overdrive recently! Particularly the ds I'm knackered or the wii if I feel more energetic. I'm so busy focussing on the game the hours fly past! And because I've got the controller in my hand I'm not able to grab any food lol!

    If nothing else is working, try learning music or an instrument perhaps? I find that 2 or 3 hours in the evening just disappear 'cos my brain and hands are so active! :)

    Fantastic!!!!


    YEAH!!! And, although every week it may not be as much... it will go. and, you will feel better and better as it does. And, you will go out and see films and do whatever you please (as long as it is legal -- mind you).

    I am very happy for you. You inspire me.

    thanks minnieme. everyone on here who is doing so well inspire me. i cant believe that it was so good really. hoping for bigger loss next week as i am retaining water at present due to that horrible womans time. i always put 7lb on a week before. i am so tired this time though. last time had mass's of energy this time i have none. also i have a terrible temper at present which seems to be a side effect. trying new soups and bars this week.
