    ...you have to do the shopping in your house (like me!). I was doing the weekly drag round the supermarket last night and was getting very tempted by all the food, to the point where I was driving my OH mad with all my moaning. He dumped our trolley (we did go back for it later!), went and got a hand basket and loaded 32 1kg bags of sugar into it, he then told me to pick it up - I couldn't even carry it to the end of the aisle!
    He then said - "Well, that's how much weight you've lost since you've been doing this diet, don't go and jack it all in just because you're having a craving!"
    It definitely did the trick, and it feels great actually physically seeing what you've achieved. I'd advise everyone to go and try it - after all p'haps if we all did it I wouldn't have got quite so many strange looks in Tesco last night!:)

    How sweet is your man????

    BTW.. have you thought of doing your shopping online and then having it delivered? You might feel like taking a chunk out of the computer whilst doing it, but I believe that PCs are LL friendly! :)

    My counsellor has a set of weights which she makes us pick up periodically to remind us how much weight we've lost - great idea, as well as actually quite scary to think we'd been carrying that on our bodies.... :eek:

    Thats a great idea to try. I did it with washing powder (less noticeable as being unusual lol) but I haven't lost nearly as much as you did. That was very quick thinking of your bloke to come up with the idea right there and then

    I have to say that OH is being very supportive and I couldn't have done it without his help - when we were shopping this week though he did comment that he wasn't going to embarrass himself again this week and if I wanted another "sugar update" I'd have to do the shopping on my own! Looks like Gaijingirl might be right and Internet Shopping could be the way forward (...but then I might start missing my weekly weightlifting session...)
