    I want, want, want, WANT a mince pie! My mum decided to buy some from Greggs and they're sitting there taunting me. I know one mince pie wont make all the weight I've lost go back on but there's still an equally loud voice in my head saying "You don't need it and it'll only make you feel bad come weigh in" Conflicting much!?!

    I know how you feel. I want the Cadbury's caramel bar out of my Ds's opened selection box, but i know I'll hate myself if I start on the choc bars already.

    I don't intent to over eat this year because I hate the anxious feeling before weigh in, I actually lost 1lb last year so that's my goal but it's so much harder when it's in front of you and you can practically taste them and feel the texture in your mouth. I think I need to put them out of my sight before I give in :(

    My mum taunted me with mince pies and little sausage rolls yesterday, I moaned and whinged a bit but I didn't have any at all, I had a satsuma instead and my hubby and kids ate the bad stuff :)

    Everyone around me keeps saying "Oh go on, it's Xmas!" and even the radio had a woman saying the meaning of Xmas is to eat until you can't move and that infuriated me. It's about who you're spending the time with not how much you can cram down your throat *annoyed short*

    I can take or leave mince pies. It worries me not. They can advertise all they like and people can eat them in front of me but I am not having any. I want to get to my target far more than having any mince pie!

    I almost bought some when I went shopping yesterday, but then thought better of it, lol. There are no mince pies, Christmas cakes or puddings, chocs, etc in this house. The hubby and kids have to suffer with me, lol. Actually I'd probably be the only one to eat them anyway! I did buy a multipack of twiglets though :D It worked out more expensive than buying them in the tub but this way it's portion control. Each little bag is 5 syns which I can work into my day. I'm now going to eat a few satsumas :D

    if you really want it have it.. i try and wait 20 minutes after a craving and if i still really want one i have one, but only one, two months ago i would stuff the lot. the last two weeks i have let myself have something that i probably shouldnt (only occasionally) but just to see if i can control myself, so far so good.
