    I so desperately want a blackcurrent jam sandwich and cant stop thinking about making one. Why wont this go away I have wanted this for days now and feel like just having it to get over the craving.

    drink more water - and forget the sandwich... Yes if you eat it, indeed the craving will have gone but sure as eggs are eggs that craving will be replaced by remorse and guilt of why you actually did it???
    Fact - the blackcurrant sandwich will still be there after you've shifted your weight... Whether you actually want it then, who knows???? But it'll be your choice to eat it and enjoy it and enjoy it still after you have eaten it....
    STAY STRONG xxxxxxxxxxxx

    Nah you don't, blackcurrant sandwiches are well known for being extremly poisonous!!

    Seriously though, I had exactly the same problem with a ham sandwich craving, went on for weeks on end. BUT keep telling yourself that it cannot possibly live up to the expectation that you have of it and as soon as it is gone how will you feel. That one moment really isn't worth the grief that it will cause and as Clare said there is plenty of time for blackcurrant sandwiches when you have achieved what you set out to.

    Hang in there, know its tough.
