    When the going gets tough what does everyone do??, I tend to go for a nap espeically around evening meal time when the family are sat around eating, I usually join them with my shake but sometimes I need to get away.

    I will also put he kettle on and make a hot drink but sometimes i just want a lick!!!! of anything (my hubby is eating veggie curry whilst i'm typing this) and I want to lick his popadom.

    Anyone got any good distractions? keep it clean!!!!!! :)

    He's finished his curry and said 'you doing the washing up'....yeah right buster! He'd better get good at ducking!

    I usually just go online, or I play on my PS3 or I draw, depends on my mood.

    But sometimes, I stay in the same room where my family are eating and just force myself to watch, that way I can increase my will power and teach myself to say NO!!!!

    yasmine thats great that you can do that!... i suppose what many of us are doing at the moment is hiding from every bit of food incase we jump on it.. i must admit I have had an unnatural obsession with food at times .. especially when Im down so I really need to prove to myself after LT that I dont need food to cheer me up :)

    you know what... to be completely honest.. for the past couple of weeks... I havent been down or upset or anything at all... I have had a massive smile on my face. That has a lot to do with the fact that I am losing weight and have met some really thinspirational people on here :)

    Ok distraction techniques - Paint nails - Facial type stuff (I will be skinny and have yummy skin!) - Drink water - Read - Play on ds - Come on minimins - Look at thin clothes online - Clean the house I think the best distraction technique is to get up and do anything - anything except EAT
