    Hi everyone, I'm starting a new job in a fish and chip shop tonight and I'm really scared! Lol. It's just a temporary job for 3 weeks until I go back to university, because I'm desperate for some money, but I'm just so worried that I'll not be able to help myself from snacking on chips and eating junky food.

    Has anybody got any advice on how to avoid temptation? I'm pretty desperate! Lol x

    Just think of them as blocks of fat and how horrible that is.

    And the 3 weeks will go very quickly.

    easy :) as soon as you feel tempted pop outside and sniff your self!! trust me you will stink!!!! it will put you off eating anything but take food with you coz if they ask you if you want anything it will be easier to resist if you have a lunchbox with you

    good luck though and what are you studying??

    I'm studying Psychology in Swansea, I love it! :) I'm at home in Newcastle at the minute though, working temporarily in the local chippy.

    I was only there for 3 hours tonight so it wasn't too bad, I managed to resist eating anything even though my brother came in and bought two pizzas and fish and chips for the family, and I was given three bags of chips at the end of my shift cause they would have been binned otherwise.

    I'm sitting here now watching my family stuff their faces while I'm browsing the forum, munching on an apple! I don't even feel tempted to pinch a slice of pizza, it's great! :D x

    The smell of grease is definitely off-putting like! I'm more of an indian curry girl than a fish and chips girl, but I like the chips now and again lol.

    I've not really tried the Weight Watchers range yet. My mam's doing all the shopping at the minute with me being back at home, so I don't get much say in what she buys, but when I move into my new flat in 3 weeks time I'll be doing my own shopping again. I don't really like ready meals, even though I'm a rubbish cook! Haha. I like meals that are quick and easy, like pasta or salads, but I just don't like the taste of ready meals. I'll give the garlic ciabatta a try though, that sounds delicious! :D x

    I haven't looked at many recipes yet as my mam does all the cooking, but when I get into my own flat, I'll probably be the one doing all the cooking because I'm moving in with three guys! Lol, so I'll definitely be looking for meal ideas then, as I'm rubbish at cooking and not very creative with my meals. I'll check it out and give it a try when I move in :) x

    no i didn't watch it all but i saw a bit of the end before big brother started, the bit where the guy had been scratching his bum then scratching his head! that was hilarious! i loved how the doctor guy said 'basically you're smearing poo in your hair' haha.

    yeah i'm moving in with 3 guys, all just good mates though, no boyfriend unfortunately! lol and they're all proper gym buffs who work out every day and drink protein shakes and stuff, so i'm hoping they'll keep me on the straight and narrow with the exercise and healthy eating! lol x

    hey katie, sorry i haven't been on here much, i've been pretty busy this weekend. glad to say i've lost another 2lbs this week so i've lost half a stone altogether in my first month of taking xenical! yay :) i've also said goodbye to the 16s, and i'm now 15st 13lbs! :D

    i'm really happy about that, but i've been feeling kinda off today. i dunno what's wrong with me, i'm just really tired and can't be bothered to do anything. i guess i'll just have a day off from the wii to relax and recuperate, and hopefully i'll be fighting fit tomorrow :)

    how was your weekend? did you drink much? lol x

    Oooh Chinese! I haven't had a chinese in months lol. I usually prefer indian food, but now you mention it, I'd love one! Haha. I've been mostly good today, although I did have a sneaky doughnut from Greggs lol. It was a one off treat to celebrate losing half a stone, and it didn't lead to a binge, so I'm happy. I've had a quorn burger with salad and new potatoes for tea, and I'll probably have a bowl of cereal later on because I got up late and didn't have breakfast, so I'm still pretty hungry lol.

    Good luck with the swimming! x
