    Hi everyone. I don't know if it's half term for you all but ours is this coming week. I thought we could have a thread about how to deal with it, unless I'm the only one who struggles with children at home and wanting to eat ALL the time. :eek:

    During the summer holidays some ladies in group struggled with their weight loss because, with children wanting to eat regularly, it sort of feels like we never get out of the kitchen and if I'm in the kitchen too much I pick.

    Sooo, any ideas? My plan is to make them packed lunches like normal while we have breakfast and leave them in the fridge. The children can come and get them at dinner time which means that I don't have to go and make anything if I'm not feeling hungry. In the summer I always ate lunch early even if I wasn't hungry which didn't help.

    I need to keep busy too because when I'm bored I also eat (any excuse really:rolleyes:). I started college in September and just being active and busy while eating fairly boring but SW food has been enough to lose weight but I'm concerned that now I have a week off I'll go back to being lazy just because I can. So I'm armed with some new recipes to try and will drag the children shopping. I just need to figure out what to do with the children that they won't find boring.:confused:

    Well I'm normally at work but we are going to a cottage for the week which could be huge sabotage BUT I plan to take all my food. I have a meal plan for dinners and we'll have big cooked breakfasts to last us until dinner. I'll have time to cook lovely meals, I'm going to make them 3 courses with soup or salad to start and fruit salad for dessert and pretend I'm in a gastro pub.
    I'm going to enjoy my week off and really look forward to spending time with my family.
    I hope to come back to a loss.

    That's my plan!

    Ooo that sounds lovely Jaylou, can I come along? :giggle: I'm only small so won't take up too much space.:rolleyes: Have a lovely week, I know you can come back with a loss having had a lovely time.

    When we've been on holiday I've tried to see it as a normal week, even going to a different group to keep me on track and I've been too scared to show up as a stranger with a gain. The fear was enough!

    I'm planning on hitting the malls (they have a Spuds place there) and also go to some museum with the kids (and take packed lunch for them and me). I really hope it's nice weather so we can go out to the park as well and do a little body magic.
    Good luck and you are definately doing something right with that amazing loss Laura!

    Thanks.:)

    Those plans are great Meli. I have to remind myself that I can do a lot more than I used to be able to so perhaps I'll do the same and get into town with the boys. I never go shopping! I'll look at some museums too. Thanks for the ideas.:D
