    So there I was, having had a very, very, frustrating morning at work - I went to get my car and bang opposite the car park was a fish and chip shop.

    It's at times of frustration and stress when I used to be at my weakest for food and F&C are one of my favourite foods, so........

    My hands went to my pockets to see how much change I had - was there enough for a portion of chips???

    Then a thought suddenly struck me...it is my weigh in day tomorrow (Thursday) and I will be handing over £50 odd quid for my next weeks supply of CD.....and I was considering ruining my whole weeks work for the sake of a £1 bag of chips.

    The question of calories or carbs didn't even come into it....but the 'yorkshire scrooge' in me did...throwing away £50 for the sake of £1 'pleasure'?...no way!!

    At that point I got in the car and drove off with another weapon in my arsenal against temptation....hard cash!!! .....as I was driving away I worked out how much my weight loss had cost me so far in fiscal terms....just over £6 for every pound I have lost. That is one hell of an investment considering I have 156 pounds to lose before I get to my target weight.

    So people....if you are tempted by that £1.50 cream cake...or that 90p bar of chocolate....just think about the money you may be throwing away when you hand it over for your CD and find you only have lost a pound or two...or nothing!!!

    Count the other pounds occasionally.

    It may make you think.
