    I've been fine all day and what do i find when i turn on the telly - nearly every single advert is for FOOD!!! :mad:
    Even the advert for beans looked tempting!! :mad:
    Maybe its safer if i just don't watch the telly ever again!!! lol

    those m & s adverts are designed to have you drooling in a puddle and racing to the nearest store the second the advert finishes. BAD M&S

    Just got in from the pub, where my OH had a meal and a beer and I sat there with my glass of water!!! The people sat next to us must of thought it was weird....but I got through it, thats the main thing x x x

    I agree those M&S ads are killers.

    I think they should be banned like other things that are bad for you. A plus for watching BBC :)

    About to start cambridge hopefully!!
    Isn't it sooooo weird how when we are on this diet we pick up on all the adverts for food!!

    But we just have to remember......when we get to goal we can retrain ourselves to eat healthy to keep the weight off but still be allowed to have treats like the stuff from M&S every so often!!

    I can cope with the M&S adverts, it's the McDonald's ones that get to me, especially the latest one, cos oh God I could kill for a Big Mac at times

    The ads don't bother me - fortunately!

    I can even watch cookery programmes with no problems.

    When the ads come on why don't you do some walking around or some gentle exercise to take your mind off them.

    I LOVE the M&S one - in a weird masochistic way. I do have to restrain myself from licking the telly though! As it is I look like my mother's labrador in front of food - right down to the drool!

    I also hate the chocolate ad - the one where she has a secret supply in a tin!

    The girl inthe ad looks sooooooooooo smug while she eats it. lol
