Help me get through December lol!

#1
OMG had an awful 2 days... the syns are out of control... the Christmas spirit has well and truely took me over and I feel really deflated and over-inflated at the same time!

So to get me through December I thought I'd start up a diary which I'll make myself update truthfully and honestly and hopefully it'll get me back on track and through this difficult period lol!

Feel free to offer any support you can... I'm gonna need it!! xx

Thanks Val, ooh you're so lucky to have fish on hand whenever you need it! In general I'm a very healthy eater, love all fruit and veg and prefer chicken and fish to red meat... it's just the pesky snacks and comfort eating in the evening that's the problem!!

I really enjoyed the fish sticks, just need to hide them from my son or they will all be gone when he gets back from school!

Lunch

Still feel as rough as old boots and can't face chocolate which is a bit of a result lol!!

Ok so tummy bug came and went and I kind of discovered the old 'chocaholic' me and it all went a bit wrong hence a 3.5lb gain over 2 weeks!!

Oh well... I can honestly say that I enjoyed all the sweet stuff... my other meals were all SW friendly... just too many choc and cakes... the house is still full of the stuff but I am trying to resist!!

I have joined the January challenge and have given myself a 7lb target which will take me to my mini target or 10st 7lbs.

Today I cooked a soup/stew with some veggies and quorn mince and got some fruit and yogs from Sainsburys to start again... also trying to not eat ANY chocs, crisps, cakes, pastries etc... and trying not to eat after 7pm as this usually works for me and helps me to get back on track... often it's the getting back into it that's the hardest thing... not the sticking to it!!

By the way... anyone know how to change the title of my post... it will look a bit odd in Summer lol!
