    Every time you feel like eating, drink a glass of water instead :) I find sparkling water more satisfying :)
    Some people split their packs and have 6 smaller amounts through the day :)
    If evening is your worst then you could have a whole pack in the morning, then two half packs, say late morning and late afternoon which you leave you another one for the evening(you can choose whether you split it or not) :)
    Once you're on week 3 you can have the bars. Cut them into pieces and put them in the fridge to make them harder to chew. they're good for eating through the evening :)

    Welcome onboard Laura, you've come to the right place, there is loads of support and advice to be found here!

    Well done for taking the first steps and please don't be too hard on yourself. Have you considered maybe starting on a higher plan which will allow you some food and working down to SS, ease yourself back in.

    me too, i will wake up with determination then around 4h30 - 5pm. i feel like if i dont eat, i will die and i go and eat eat eat until nothing is left in the frigde:cry:.

    now by 3pm i am out with the kids till 6pm, going windows shopping , to the park or something, anything as longer i am away from food.
    plan my day.

    any leftover food from the family, i bin straight away, clean the place, pot remove every trait and smell of food, close the kicthen door. and when all this fail, i just log on minimins, read stories and say to myself. yes i can do it.
    you are not alone , i know what you are going through, don't give up, don't be disappointed, push through, you can do it...:)
