Really flagging today......


Want to be a yummy mummy!
Been so tired at work today, felt really tired since about 11.30!

Am missing tea so much, I hate it black and wondered if a tiny bit of skimmed milk would hurt much?

I might try it week after next.

Feeling fed up, dont even want my shakes (have had 2 packs today though) my body wants FOOOOOOOOOD! Am not going to give in though.

Will feel ok when I get home. Hope I feel more alive tomorrow!

My CDC allows skimmed milk on SS. Although I don't have it as I have my coffee black. Maybe it's worth asking your counsellor?
lauren got your email, ill reply in a bit! hold on in there... it will be worth it!!!!!!!

my cdc said i could have skimmed milk if i wanted and didn't drink gallons of the stuff
hang in there chuck it'll be worth it x


WILL be Slim!
you tried having herbal tea instead hun?
If in doubt, speak to your CDC....but speak to her/him before you do anything just so they know what your planning!
dont give into those food cravings hun! dont let it beat you now!

I have 1 cup of tea a day with skimmed milk in it-it works out about 150ml for the whole weel and it hasn't affected my losses. Good luck x
my last restart I felt the same way however for me it was a slippery slope and the losses were quickly affected. Talk to ur cdc and if u kno thats the only addition you will make it might be worth it. I have switched now to redbush tea or green tea with mint and it has really helped me to stay on track!

Good luck

Unreal - I know this sounds just revolting - my reaction was URGH! But it really is not as bad as it sounds.
Mix 1 tbsp of vanilla shake to a little water to make a milk substitue, and add to your tea. It's just like having a cup of tea with milk. Do give it a go. It may just make those cups of tea you've been craving!
I make tea and coffee throughout the day with the vanilla shake. Keeps me going and fills me up.

My reaction to that is certainly urgh! Does it taste of vanilla!?

I feel soooo much better this evening, I had a choc mint shake which was nice, have drunk about 4lt of water today and feel a bit more awake as the MIL has been round and it was just something different to put my mind on, I made them dinner whilst I had my shake and now its half 8, I feel better.

Plus just found my tiffany ring and it fits again so im happy!!!

Thanks girls - I am going to get some marigold tomorrow and also get some green tea see if i like it x
hate green tea on its own have to have the one with mint!

Not at all! It's slightly sweet - so like having a sugar in the tea, having said that it's also quite creamy.

At weekends, I sit of an evening with a pot of tea and vanilla shake, and I pour a bit of the shake into the bottom of my cup, then top up with brewed tea! I end up having about 5/6 cups - VERY filling and lovely.

I'm a real tea belly.

My CDC also said you can do it with banana, as it makes more creamy tea, rather than sweet. I tried it (couldn't taste the banana - but could smell it!) it was quite creamy/milky tasting, so I have stuck with the vanilla because normally I have 1 sweetner in my tea. ;)
