    Week 2 of ss is going okay, the hardest thing is when I'm at home and my partner is eating normal food, he cooks for himself which I appreciate but while he's sat there eating burgers I watch sipping soup lol, I haven't felt the need to eat anything just yet but oh god it's hard! Anyone going through the same thing?

    I did at the beginning. I either asked him to eat in another room or I went in another room. I don't mind so much now as always have my bar at the same time. Think the bars made it easier for me.

    I'm on step 3 so I get an evening meal and we get to eat together he just has more or slightly different things but the other afternoon he sat at the side of me eating a packet of crisps and I could smell them and they smelt lovely and I really had to resist the urge to bop him one

    I'm on SS+ and we tend to eat our evening meal at the same time. I cook on a Monday and Tuesday, Monday isn't bad as my wife is doing the 5:2 diet.

    To be fair to her, she hasn't eaten pizza, burgers or fish & chips since I've started.

    I think looking forward to an evening meal and being able to eat at the same time as my wife by doing the SS+ has been the only thing that has made the diet bearable.

    I walk the dog, Each time my OH and son sit down to a meal I'l chuck my wellies on and go out for 20 mins with the pooch, I do enjoy cooking though, I'm finding my perspectives and opinions on food are changing, I look at a greasy deep fried chip and think "That'd be better oven cooked" or with like spag bol I think " I could have smaller portions and have bigger salad's with it" I'm trying to prepare my mind and body for when I finish the diet and go back to eating normal food's, the way I'm thinking ATM I'm excited to have a healthier way of life xx

    My mantra is "I know what it tastes like and unless I want to stay fat I'm not having it" it is defo working!
