    Refeeding (Exante)
    I went shopping today for the OH's weekly dose of junk food. I spent £27, on enough food to last him at least a week with the addition of some extra bread.

    This got me thinking. Our "normal" weekly shop is about £80. :eek: Add to that extras for lunches, the odd takeaway or meal out, alcohol and pop and I reckon it's quite common for us to spend £150 a week just on food and drink.

    This stunned me a bit, as I then worked out that me buying my Exante using the special offers is going to cut that down by about 1/3rd.

    Then I had another thought. My current plan is to stick with the diet for approx 3 months, (during which time I hope to lose about 3 stone) then reintroduce/maintain over the summer and start again around October time to shift the last couple of stone by the end of the year.

    I reckon that by the time I reintroduce I will have saved approx £1000 that I would otherwise have spent on food. :eek:

    So I can justify spending that on some new clothes to fit the new me can't I? :D Now if that's not an incentive to stick to it I don't know what is...........

    Love your plan! I have noticed a saving on the weekly shop and that pays for my Exante.
