    Rather than ponder on the fact, I pre plan my eating for the day and cant manage to stick to it.....Feeling disappointed with myself and doing my head in.

    I thought it would be good to change our mind sets, as it is mind over matter. So feel free to add what your are doing well;

    • 4 or more ltrs of water a day
    • Going to the gym every other day
    • Taking my vitamins

    I'm not dieting, I'm on the pregnancy diet!
    I am exercising 3 times a week if not more, for at least an hour at a time, where I never used to do anything at all.

    I am losing weight, even if it is very slow and has taken me since January to get 10lbs off, I will get there slowly and steadily.

    I eat fruit instead of junk food and often have fruit instead of a lunch. I try to exercise at least 3 times a week. I dont drink that much water though :p id rather have a hot drink than water unless the weather is hot :p

    I knew everyone out there is doing great work! It's true 4 litres is easy after a few days, and many people seem to be exercising.

    Last year when I lost weight my program said no exercise as it messes with hunger levels and your metabolism and the science of my program is to create a happy chemistry again within you stomach using certain foods..... however, when I lost the weight, by chance I had an allergic reaction to something (at my workplace) and I had to go on steroids (I gained 3 kilos in 3 days, along with another 3 the following week!)

    By this time I had lost my passion and motivation for exercise and found it really had to shift those kilos, I gained an extra few on top of this and have lost them, and now fighting the original gain.

    My point being I have learnt that at the end of my program the second time (now) I dont want to do the refeed, do maintenance and then not be exercising otherwise this vicious circle will come back around.

    Thanks for listening and I'm very pleased to hear about other peoples achievements. Sometimes we become consumed with whats not working for us.

    Hope I'm not too late to join in. I try to eat my 5 a day by eating fruit instead of chocolate and crisps, always have fruit to hand, 30 minutes walk a day and lots of water!

    Never too late.

    How easy is it to do these things? Not very, lets all take this and try to add something new to our routines.

    I might try buying the paper everyday and reading it in the afternoon when I'm likely to cheat.

    Been counting calories and sticking to them, actually going to the gym (2-3 times a week) and exercising regularly and drinking more water and green tea. :D

    I resisted drinking any alcohol this weekend and ate less bad crap than I usually do on the weekends (I can not stick to my plan any more than 60% during these days) and I, as a result feel the best I have for a Monday (except for some bloatedness) than the past 3 Mondays yay!!!
