    Lovely to see how others approach maintenance. I tried the 80/20 when I lost weight with SW some years ago. I couldn't do after a while....did my head in:D so haven't tried it this time around.

    Oooohhhh Hot fudge cake. Yum :)

    I get days like that. It makes no sense sometimes, though it is often relative to how much else is going on in my day.

    Perhaps you could try having some protein with each meal. I do that anyway. So, for example, if I was having shredded wheat, I would either follow it with a smoothie (frozen fruit, milk and yoghurt), or I'd stick yoghurt on the SW :D)

    I find half a dozen almonds a god send if I have a hungry day. Just keep a few in a little bag in my pocket and nibble away if I'm hungry before something is due.

    They don't give me that "oooohhhh, full now" sensation, but they can definitely keep my hunger at bay until the next mealtime.

    Hi Mandy

    Back from school run and caught up with your diary:)

    Firstly a big congratulations for reaching goal, your pics are great:D

    Sorry to hear about tension with OH, hope things soon settle.

    I love the fact you are writing your meal plans down, I like reading other peoples meal ideas as sometimes it'seasy to just eat the same things day in day out. (I've never done that, maybe I should!)

    Hiya Mandy!

    Love the diary especially as I can pinch a few meal ideas!! I too get hungry days, I call them my munchies when no matter what I eat I still feel hungry, I tend to binge on fruit which fills me up for a bit but has other less desirable consequences!

    Gxx

    do seem to be having the same thing quiet often but I did pre diet too I lived off steak and kidney pie and veg for a yearish once really think it because I dont like so much easier to eat the same .Anyway I have started to make 1 night a week my try it night .last night was some thing simple but I would of said no before as it had onion and herbs and tinned soups only ever liked oxtail.The baxters range is really nice so far and will be appearing in my cupboard more .
    Creme fraiche is not nice when you try a bit to see what its like but get it with strawbs or the meringue and wow better than cream:eek: really :eek:
