Carthago delenda est - seriously craving chocolate! HELP!!!

Hi guys,

Today marks a fresh start!

Perhaps by going it alone I may be able to spur myself on - I am doing this for me.

I think going to group was good, but for me, it was about losing weight so I wasn't embarrassed, not about losing weight because I want to be healthier and look better.

So, attempt two will commence today - detox!

Your help and kind wishes are always welcome - this forum is amazing!

Thanks very much!

Dont forget your HeA and HeB and any syns Hun. Also you need to "bulk" out what you are eating, have a look at my food diary to give you some idea and I have a gastric band fitted!

Thanks for the tip! I forgot my HEXB! I'm using my HEXA for milk for tea and I may use the rest later with some weetabix (HEXB) as a late snack :)

Hey Meli,

I've not set myself a strict water challenge for this week as it is fishy week, but I am definitely drinking more! We'll see how it goes, hopefully coupled together, I should be on track for a reasonable loss!

How about you, did you do it last week?
