I went to the chemist last monday (25th Jan) and ended up having a consultation, and a very shocking weigh in .. so I started my diet on tuesday. I am hoping that with it being monitored at the chemist etc, it should encourage me to stick to it. Unfortunately I fell off the wagon on only day 2 and had a ham sandwich which I felt awful about, but compared to what my eating habits were before that wasn't actually so bad. I'm struggling when making tea for the children so I have been trying to make sure I eat my meal before I start making theirs. This has done pretty good in helping me resist the temptation to 'pick' at whatever they are having. I'm looking forward to my weigh-in on monday, am just keeping my fingers crossed that I see some results.
