    and be Friday so I can get weighed!!

    I also need some advice..
    I usually have a shake about 7.30am then at about 12 noon then when I get in from work I have a bar at about 6ish and literally straight after I have my last shake. I think it's due to bordem but right now I wish I'd saved it!!
    So, any ideas how to stop myself just tucking straight into my last shake? I wanna save it so I can snuggle up on my sofa, infront of the telly and sip it slowly about 8 or 9pm-ish!!
    Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated?

    Just tell that inner chatter box, "NO", and choose to save it till later! ;)

    Try having a big glass of water after the shake maybe? SOmething to just ward it off.

    Or save the sake till later and have them both together.

    I save all my packs until about 6pm. I have a shake when I get in, then have soup a bit later and then when watching TV, latish around now, I will have a shake and bar together while watching films, etc.

    You will find a way that you like. :)

    Do you like the savoury drink powders? Have one of those about 6, i like them with some pepper in....really nice, then save your shake for later, it feels like having an extra soup!

    Way to delay that last shake!

    As others have said, delay tactics are good - bath, cleaning :eek:(, walking :eek:) anything like that but what I do is get in from work and have a sachet of the savoury drink with pepper - it means that I don't have my dinner soup/shake til my partner has dinner at 8ish. Then I have my last shake when he has his yoghurt or desert or whatever later on.

    After a little while though you'll find a routine and you won't think about it so you won't be rushing to get it in out of boredom.

    Good luck ;o) xxx
