    Good Morning all!

    Lets hope the title of this thread works it's magic and takes 1lb off every person who posts today!!!

    I need this thread today. Have found the weekend a struggle and I must focus today. Even last week at work, during break times I was playing mind games "what's really low calories that I can eat" lol - My food gremlins really are standing there ground.

    I have decided that I am going to take all 3 of my packs to work. I usually have my 1st at around 9.30, then my second around 2.30 and my 3rd at around 7.30 (when I'm home) I think it's important that I change this because it's just not working. I'm hungry.

    This week I'm going to try 9.30, 1pm and 5pm. That way when I'm home I can look forward to my hot green tea/hot liquorice tea or hot peppermint tea (went on a mad one purchasing teas at the weekend!)

    I'll be checking in on here often today. I MUST keep motivated. I have my wi tomorrow. Although it's totm so i'm not holding out for much, bring on the following week though! I usually loose BIG after totm week.

    Have a fabulous Monday. Keep shedding those lbs!!! :)

    Hugs x x x

    Good morning everyone, I hope you all have a good easy day today :)

    I have my second weigh in tonight but not expecting much of a loss as I havent done too well with my water this week and I had 2 pickled onions earlier in the week too (although this shouldnt really affect me I dont think).

    Keep motivated everyone, Christmas is closing in :)

    I'm stressed!!!! I have just had a telephone call from my landlady who wants to "discuss our tenancy" because her "circumstances have changed". As you know because of problems we have had with youths, me and HB decided we will be moving soon. But after a long discussion we decided to leave it until after Christmas, because it would be too stressful/costly before Christmas. But it looks like we are going to have no choice. She is coming round on Thursday at 7pm, so I guess I will know more then. I can feel the stress already - GRRRRRRR!!!!

    Our tenancy was renewed April time, so yes it is up! However, I have a sneaky feeling that she has to give us 2 months notice. Where as we only need to give 1 month if we were to leave. So 2 months from Thursday (if that is why she is visiting) will be mid Jan. Having said that "circumstances have changed" could also mean she is putting the rent up in price, but wants to chat to us about it before drafting a new tenancy agreement. But I am preparing for the worst, just so that I'm not completely thrown!

    Yes legally you have to be given 2 months notice in writing. I have been through this with a previous landlord resulting in us being homeless yrs ago but they do have to give you the 2 months notice. x

    Hi Emma

    They have to give you notice of a rent increase too surely?

    Morning Emma and fellow CD peeps. I am sure you will be fine re tenancy, like Jimmyshoo said, leases are bindin so you will be fine til ater xmas im sure. I am gonna work so hard today. I feel like such a failure. Had a terrible weekend, drank wine and ate food yesterday :( It has been stressful because my husband is away and i had to say goodbye to my 10 year old son on my own as he had to return to his new school in UK. (Im in Germany). I know it is no excuse but i hve done it now. Onwards and DOWNwards with the pounds is what i say! Decided to not weigh today, will have a good week and i will make myself proud next monday. xx

    I'm not sure Jimmyshoo about notice of rent increase. You may be right. I guess there isn't much point in us guessing though, We will find out for sure on Thursday. In a way I want to email her and ask straight out what it is about. But I also want to respect the fact that she is doing things properly, in that she wants to tell us face to face rather than on the phone.

    Emma, I hope the house stuff turns out to be relatively painless. Try not to worry about it beforehand.

    Emmie - you are doing the right thing. Don;t kick yourself over it, just get back on track and in the future try to train yourself not to turn to food in times of stress. "If hunger isn't the problem, food isn't the answer" I keep telling myself that over and over and it is starting to sink in. I was the worst in the world for turning to food when that wasn't really the problem.

    kerryberry - Hope you manage with getting back to SS. :)

    Well, Monday again and I've just been to physio to sort my back out after doing something strange with it dragging my suitcase up 3 flights of stairs in September. Going out for a drink with a friend at 3pm then teaching 5pm til 10pm.
    Physio girl says I can go swimming again so I shall be up and off to the pool first thing tomorrow morning (first thing for me being around 10am). Had another little shopping spree on ebay yesterday adn bought a nice black top. It all gets posted to my mum in UK so when I get there on 4th of Dec I will have lots of things to try on. Hopefully I will fit into some of them. I ahve been buying in much smaller sizes which I may not fit into until after xmas ..lol much much after xmas but hey I can hope!
    Have a good day folks!

    Blingbabe .... where are you today? no posts from you on the daily? lol I wonder where you are when you're not here!

    @Emma, thats stressing indeed, just don't try to worry to much, in the worst case it will only hasten your move ;).
    I hope for the rest monday does works its magic for you ;).

    @Emmie, i can understand why you caved. But! youll get back on track in no time ;) and indeed, surprise yourself on monday :).

    I have had a weekend full of thinking, and thinking and thinking, and i can't seem to stop doing it. I am thinking about my future, about not eating for half a year, about maybe changing jobs and maybe even getting myself a new diploma! Weird.....i feel a bit down, though i have so much to be happy about!
