    This weekend we have been up to our caravan in Norfolk, as usual. We went up on Thursday and came back this evening. Its been really beautiful walking by the sea and enjoying the sunshine, although it has been very cold at night.

    On Saturday, we went into Sheringham and it came to lunch time. Himself is a diabetic on insulin so has to eat proper meals at regular times. We went into our favourite coffee shop cum restaurant so he could have his jacket potato, baked beans and salad. When the lady took the menu, I ordered a large mineral water and a large black coffee - then explained to her why I wasn't eating. She was more than happy for me to sit there and munch on my CD chocolate orange meal bar while Himself ate his lunch!

    In the evening, we dined with friends. They sat down to their roast pork dinner, complete with crackling - my absolute favourite! I was tempted - but didn't give in, and I sat with them having my bowl of oriental chilli soup!

    It gets better! Today, my husband wanted to go the Hungry Horse for lunch. 'Ok,' said I, 'Let's do it!' So in we went. I ordered a large glass of sparkling mineral water. He had a very good looking steak dinner while I ate my CD chocolate meal bar! And I was not even tempted!!

    I feel very pleased with myself and still have my goal firmly in my sights - although it is a long way in the distance!

    So if I don't get a decent weight loss on Tuesday, I shall be SO disappointed - especially as I haven't cheated once in nearly 3 weeks!

    Well done grandama- that's brilliant. I haven't cheated at al either- except that tonight I had half an orange bar as I was really hungry after a busy day. I'm over 5ft 8 so am spposed to have 4 a day but usualy can't manage it. i'm a bit nervous about Tuesday as WI 3 seems to be much less for lots of people than the first 2.
    How tall are you by the way?

    wow thats a lot of temptation to have kind of altogether!
    well i think if you can survive that then there will be no stopping you.
    WELL DONE ON YOUR RESOLVE!

    you reminded me of when i had my tonsils out and i sat at the hospital table with a hard boiled egg infront of me and everyone else was having a lovely dinner, i sat and just cried!

    Oh, that's brilliant, Grandma! I always found that eating out was the hardest part of all (I avoided it as much as possible!), so you've done exceptionally well. :)

    Btw, isn't it odd having everyone on here call you 'Grandma'? ;)

    Well done Grandma, I'm sure you will see your reward when you step on those scales. I know what you mean about week 3 WI I'm a bit worried too, got mine tonight but think even if its only a lb or 2 it's still a loss.

    Good luck for your WI.

    Wow you are an inspiration - it just goes to show that YOU CAN do it if you are focussed - I am even thinking of printing that off and sticking it on my fridge to remember what you did, when I am tempted to nibble when I start SSing again!

    Fantastic - keep it up! xxx

    The greatest joy in my life is when my little granddaughter, who is 2, calls me Grandma!! I just love it! I suppose I may also be one of the older members of this group at nearly 58! So, no, I don't find it odd!!

    But I do have a 'real' name that I am more than happy to be called! :)

    Hi Linda and thank you for asking. I'm much better now thank you! I still have the lump on my eyebrow that is quite sore, but otherwise, I am none the worse for the experience! At least I have given a lot of people a lot of laughs!!!
