    I find that when the rain comes down (which is nearly always) my little mind always wanders to "cosy" food... fresh bread from a bakery, fairy cakes and apple pies and roast beef dinners! Today its pouring but I have planned my day off work and am going to blitz my house til two o clock when I will then have ww chicken hotpot and an hour with my book before continuing my house. What are you guys doing to stop food thoughts? Maria xx

    at the mo' I am sitting on the sofa watching Diagnosis Murder. Have planned to have a shower in an hr or so. Then I am going to go into town with hubby when he's heading back to work. So I will have a nose around the shops (so won't be tempted to eat). And then when he finishes work we will go and do our grocery shopping. Will clean up the kitchen before I go and so this will keep me busy till lunch-time. Othrwise I will still be sitting here come tonight as I am so tired today but not going to give in to it. :wave_cry:

    Ooh pouring rain. Cosy food - what about nice warming 0 pt soup, yummy low fat casseroles and errrr......sticky toffee pudding?! ;)

    I come on here to distract myself, or look on other weight loss sites for inspiration. Or look at 'fat photos'. It can really help sometimes to be reminded why I'm refraining from high fat foodage!

    I'm generally too busy to stop for a coffee at home so I don't think about food until I need to!

    When I do think about the naughty bits of food I tend to potter around the house, go on the wii fit or open my uni work!

    I made sure I had a good brekkie (bacon & egg sarnie) before doing the weekly supermarket shop. I also had a wee look round the charity shops for ww books - I managed to find some perfect size glasses that I have been looking for for only 50p each, a funky necklace for £1 but the best thing was a ww cook smart baking cookbook for £2 - It looks like something you could use right now, the recipes look yummy - maybe you can find it online and then will not need to resist so much when you cook for your boys x
    p.s. If you like I can type out the recipe for chocolate brownies (only 2pts per serving ;))

    you did well to resist (almost) temptation!
    I saved some points yesterday so that i could have bacon and egg at dinnertime with other half... i cooked it on top of a rack in the oven instead of frying, but left it in for a bit too long, so it was like cardboard! didnt enjoy it much..... am hoping any fat was baked to oblivion!

    Ahh aversion therepy - I wish I had that for cheese :D Hope you are feeling better now.
    Btw just in case the brownie recipe can be found on the 'goodtoknow' website - I would post a link but I'm not allowed until I have 50 posts (am obviously working on that :eek:)
    leoleoleo123 - I too have had the cardboard bacon experience... not good :( I cooked my bacon & eggs in frylight - I trim all the fat off the bacon first - just had it again for brekkie in a ww bagel with mushrooms & tomatoes - yummy :p
