Gemma... you really need to do a proper shop so that you aren't tempted to have food when your out. Or have breakfast before you go out.

Forget about today.... have a good weekend, eat all the right foods and you should hopefully be ok :)

Gemma, if you want have a look at my diary's... though I do all Green Days, but most of it could be adapted to Red. You need to work out what you need for the week meal wise, make a list, stick to it and not to buy ANYTHING extra at all.

Try and sit and have a calm few minutes and remember why you are trying to do this in the first place.

You tell her ollieblog - I can only echo whats already been said babe. I know its tough sometimes, but it wont get better untill youv identified whats really going on. Work out the areas you struggle with and figure out how your gunna work around them. You ought write down seven meals, and seven lunchs. Buy all the ingrediants and then pick and chose how you see fit as each day comes.

I dont doubt for one minute that you really want this, but at the end of the day gorgeous.. it'l only be you who suffers if you dont get yourself back on track. x

Hun, you really dont need to prove anything to anyone. I completely believe that you want this, but you dont need to prove that, you just need to believe that you can do it. The fact that you are on here, saying you realise you could have gone over syns, is testament to the fact that you are determined to do this. AND YOU CAN. Stop beating yourself up and believe in yourself. So you had a full english, so what, forget about it and draw a line under it. We have all done it!

Try and work out a shopping list for the week, i have to do this, i need to be careful with my pennies, so i need to plan carefully what i can afford to feed us for through the week. Have a think about what type of meals will help keep you on track, for me its, treat meals, ie sw friendly fried rice etc! xx

tescos do a healthy living range, so they ALWAYS have extra lean mince. You have to kinda fight for it in morrisons though- iv never bought it in asda so not sure about that one. If in doubt, buy lean.. brown it off put it in a seive.. and then boil the kettle a few times, tip in over and press with a spatula, watch all the fat drip out and then return to pan and continue as normal.. but even then, lean has minamul syns in it.


You can do it hun. You know you can, if you ever doubted yourself you wouldnt have joined in the first place. You enjoy it when you do get on it properly, so you just need to do it all the time :) i think some good organisation skills, will be all you need. It will make you feel calmer and more positive if you know you have the food and what your having.

Chin up hon, it can be really hard to adapt to in the beginning, but honestly, it gets easier. One slip up today is ok, just dont let it ruin the whole day. Last week, I had two awful days of binging, and then sat/sun/mon/tue was 100% on plan, and got 1.5 off, so it can be done!

Like the others said, plan ahead, don't buy more sweets than you have syn allowance for, when you make a meal, make twice as much and chill/freeze half, then you have a meal ready to reheat for another evening. Asda usually have X-lean mince, but only chilled, not frozen. Most meats you just buy and trim the fat off :)

No-one is gonna judge you hon, we've all been there, done that...

Its completely free hun. Boil your rice first, let it cool, then chuck it in a wok with some frylight, add some soy sauce, scramble an egg and chuck it in, add spring onions and peas, onion, and your done, and its lovely. Why not also buy a big pack of lean mince, and split it up, and bulk your meals out with veg etc so the meat goes a bit further. Tinned tomatoes are great for making good cheap meals. My cupboard is stocked full. I also buy chicken for sunday lunch, but as only 3 of us, i use breast meat of sunday, and then leg meat etc for a curry on the monday. And i made a really simple pasta with tomato, herbs and cheese on top tonight, cheap as chips, free of syns (cheese hexa) and it was lush! there are ways around it believe me. It just really takes some planning and organisation. and you will feel better once youve done this, as you know your prepared for the week ahead xx

Yeah, if its meats you can cut all the white fat off that you can see.. buy it and cut it off.. but being healthy living there wont be much fat on any of it!

- the packaging has a green label. :)


im so glad to hear you and OH are back on track. We all hit tough patchs. Me & OH are still working on our 'intimate' part of our relationship because despite loosing the weight, i cannot explain why..because i simply dont know myself.. but i just didnt want it, any of it, or anyone, even him.. near me.. touching me.. etc. Just get off! LOL but were getting there, it takes time. My only advise is (i know part of your problem was simalar) it does just 'change' you dont just suddenly want to be intimate, so dont bother waiting for it, cos it dont come! You'v just gotta suck it up, and get on with it, and i just found after a while, i found myself again.. and now im initiating it all again. It simply doesnt change unless you make it change. it took me ages to realise this.



anywho.. sorry to digress!

((massive hugs)) funerals are hard.. and food isnt at the top of your priority list, and no one expects it to be.. When my nanny died, it felt like my world was gunna cave in. . but i decided i wouldnt let it stop me, because she wouldnt have wanted to cause a fuss to everyones lives lol! i focused and channeled all that emotion i had into food optimising, and of course it worked in my favour because it was a distraction.. and i still saw results..

If that's what you want to do then just do it. Forget the old food diary and start a new one! New diary and a fresh start.

Good luck!
