    I went out this morning with my daughter to buy a new quiche dish (loong story). And from where the car park is, to the shop, the ONLY thing in between the two is a fish and chip shop. I willed myself to go past it, right from before we even got to the car park, but as I passed I noticed a special for the day. It was buy an adults fish and chip supper, get a childs supper free. I actually went INTO the shop..... was about to order it..... Then just as the lady asked what I wanted.... I said "Never mind... I'm not supposed to be eating this" and WALKED OUT!!!:D

    I'm sure she thought I was a nut case, but i don't care... I resisted!!

    Now I feel really proud of myself for not doing it, and am going to SW fish and chips for dinner!

    I can see your halo shining from here!!! Well done on the willpower. I did exactly the same thing yesterday, took my dad shopping, and he bought himself fish and chips on the way home, and offered to buy me some - I politely declined - whilst wanting to rip his out of his hands LOL.

    Aww well done hun. I know how you feel though just walked back from tesco's after stocking up with healthy food for this week coming and my husband and daughter were munching on chocolate all the way i thought jesus talk about supporting me. However i felt really pleased with myself that i resisted and knowing i am in control is a wonderful feeling x

    You wouldn't have liked it anyway! (Tell yourself that!) I had some fish and chips as a treat the other day, and was really disappointed - they tasted so greasy compared with what I am now used to.

    Nice one!

    Your SW fish and chips will taste far better anyway, won't have all that grease all over it and you won't feel guilty after. Win!

    Well done!!! It's amazing how much will power we have at times isn't it?! Very glad you resisted and had some nice, healthy, yummy food instead :D

    Since starting SW I've really gone off chippy food. Sometimes when my Mum and Sister order in I will use some syns and have something, but I am ALWAYS disappointed with it. SW all the way eh?! ;)

    That's brilliant ... and very funny :D

    We used to get fish and chips quite often and it always made me feel sick. It's just so greasy and reading up on the calories afterwards ... eek!
