    ha. ok totty. have you done the maths? how much are you wanting to lose a week and what are your maintenance calories? in fact, if you know of one, i would like a reliable calculator to tell me this too!!

    i am sure that with structure you will get the results you want. if you HAVE to stick to something, something concrete rather than just 'eating healthily' then it helps. thing is, how do so many people manage to just eat healthily and stay thin without effort... i think we all need our brains rearranging somehow, but until they come up with that particular device, good luck and let me know how you get on. i'm starting something new tomorrow too so cross everything for me!!

    hey totty. not doing too badly at the moment. am finding it hard not to munch on things but have had some carrots and some celery with me to nibble on so it hasn't been too bad and it's worth it so i can eat a panini for lunch tomorrow as my treat of the day :D having done a detox i haven't been allowed anything other than fruit and veg really so a bit of cheese will do me good i reckon, ha.

    have you got plenty of cals left for tonight totty?

    i'm sure you could since it's the overall energy expenditure of your body against the overall calories you eat over the course of the week.

    i can't save mine up because i have a day of 500 and who has spare on that!! and then a day of not counting and not feeling guilty but being 'careful' with treats. am off to see indiana jones tomorrow night. woo. i can see pick and mix looming. i'll be good. i promise. just a fizzy cola bottle or two :D

    Tomorrow is gonna be so hard to calorie count. Breakfast & lunch no problem, but am going out with my OH for an anniversary dinner. I wish menus had calories recorded on them! :wave_cry: I've been so good for 4 weeks, I don't wanna mess up now. I don't like salad either!

    bananas are really high. the apples i get are 45 per apple so not so bad there.

    and i'm on 500 because i alternate that with a day of not counting. so it has to be low in order to average out your calorie intake. have managed not to go mental today. am trying to eat like a 'normal' person...
