    Im actually quite excited looking forward to checking my weight tomorrow morning and starting this. Im a bit worried how the food will fit in on a work day but Im sure theres a way through it my first shift back is next saturday my first long shift start 7am finish 9.30pm theres far too much food on this plan to actually fit it into the breaks so who knows but I have a week to try get my head round it....

    Perhaps I am thinking
    shake pre work
    fruit at break if I get one
    protein and salad at lunch break and perhaps a munch bar less obvious than a shake
    fruit if theres another break
    protein and salad when I get home
    Ive never done a long day so Im not sure how the breaks work and unfortunately as a student nurse Im gonna have to try hide the diet i am doing. In this profession it seems to be fine to be seen to eat junk and smoke but if your dieting anything other than healthy eating seems to be a no no

    That sounds like a good plan Jenny. I'm assuming you're starting a new placement? You may be suprised and find people are supportive but if you're like me I like to keep things to myself as you say everyone seems to have an opinion on how we should lose weight.

    I'm a nurse myself but at least I dont do those long shifts I couldnt handle them myself but try and get your breaks in.

    Good luck for tomorrow, I'm on an afternoons so will check to see how you got on sunday

    Hiya Vanda

    I am doing some make up time as I went on my honeymoon during placement time. So I am going back to a lovely ward I have been on before. I cant wait to go back but alot of the nurses on the ward are on slimming world so the chat seems to be diet 24/7. Ive never done a long day before but my mentor is on that shift and they gave it to me to do as well. Not looking forward to it

    Right on with day 1 well I slept in so looks like day one should be an easy one I am on the 40 plus plan so I get 2 portions of protein a day so Ive started the day off with an ommlette and veg. Not had any shakes yet but Im guessing I should have my morning one with the fibre stuff

    Well done

    No need to eat small portions to lose weight. You can eat loads if it is the right stuff, I dont do small portions

    Have a fine Monday

    I was going to start this saying I didnt know why but I do know why. Yesterday I went out and didnt plan any food so I sat through lunchtime watching my family eat while I drink water then we ended up saying out even later as hubby wanted to go to his friends house and they were nattering by the time we left it was 7pm and to say I was hungry was a bit of an underestimation... I felt really sick and very dizzy... the thought of going home and working out a meal to cook really pained me so we reverted to trend and I had a chicken kebab for tea with chips.

    I later discovered my totm had also arrived which didnt help. Today again has been a nightmare I have felt like crying all day I really wanted chocolate and felt hungry all day. I was feeling so yuck that hubby drove through Mc D drive through for the kids tea and I was good I kept away. My son was trying to be nice so he brought me a huge bar of chocolate home over a 1000 cals worth and of course I ate it. So all in all you could say its been a poo two days. Hubby seems to be trying to pursuade me just to eat this week and try again next week but I dont want too. So on with tomorrow and I wouldnt mind but i REALLY DIDNT LIKE THE CHOCOLATE ANYWAY
