    Ive lost a stone in 2 weeks, only 2 more to go now. Ive decided to have a day off, in that ive had some diet dandelion and burdock, a bit of my easter egg, and tonight im gonna have a lovely sirloin steak but maybe have some real chips with it, then tommorow back on strict induction again. Do you think this is a bad idea and un doing my good work. Has anyone else done this, oh yeah i might have a glass or 2 of wine tonight, my first alcohol in 2 weeks!

    wow u have done great. your weight loss is bound to be slower from now on. i would think a small treat every now and then would be better than a massive daily blow out. be careful of the wine as it WILL go to your head!

    Don't I know that! :eek::(

    I guess a treat now and again is alright, but isn't it about a lifestyle change?? I've got no room to preach though as I'm always off the wagon! :D

    I had a serious issue yesterday at my friends house, she invited us all round for drinks n nibbles, which was chocolate and sweets galore. i thought i did really well and had water....but did have 2 squares of green and blacks chocolate 85% coco, i am hoping this wont effect my week 2 weight loss...i did check the pack though and the full big bar was 15 carbs and in 30 pieces...so i counted it as 1 carb...not sure if i did right. Just wanted something naughty while all around me was getting drunk and stuffing there faces with pizza and sweets. I think i did well getting away with the chocolate :D

    LOL @ FAF, it's amazing how alcohol gets you on this WOL isn't it. Sadly, it's only during induction, if it weren't I'd have saved a fortune. LOL
