    Hi,

    Just found out my brother may have had a heart attack and I really want to hit the chocolate. I need some stern advice, or something, I don't want to be given the green light to go on a binge, but god its hard.

    HELP :cry:

    Dont head for the chocolate or next time it could be you with a suspected heart attack ( dont mean to sound cruel). Say a wee prayer for him, and look at the before and after picks on here to discourage you from grabbing the chocolate, i don hope your brothers ok x

    Oh no, that's awful, I do hope he's ok! Keep us posted won't you!

    As for the chocolate, tough one - it won't help, it won't change anything and in the long run it won't make you feel any better, but, you have much more important things to think and worry about at the moment, so I wouldn't like to tell you not to have it because in the great scheme of things a bit of chocolate doesn't seem like a very big deal in your present situation.

    I hope he's ok (and I hope you're ok also!) x

    I agree with whats already been said, the chocolate wont help and in the long run will only make matters worse. If you really need something then go for a bitter and low milk content, good quality dark chocolate which has less fat and sugar in. Really sorry to hear bout your brother, I hope he makes a full recovery and everything is ok! Sending hugs your way xxx

    Well,

    I didn't resist the urge, but I did have a packet of maltesers and as I am on core, I have pointed according.

    What I am really happy though, is that I DID NOT ALLOW myself to make it into a full blown binge like I normally do - so I am happy about that.

    I was pointing, but now I am on the core plan, and I feel really good on it.

    How is everyone else doing ? I did have a blip last week and it was the TOTM and I put up 1lb. Honestly, it was nothing to do with the 5 bars of chocolate I had in one day : LOL :)

    But if I can survive today, I can survive anything - excuse the pun.

    Will keep you posted.

    I think you did brilliantly to stop at a bag of malteesers - I always find that once I start on the sweet things, I can't stop, so having those malteesers and stopping there is great going, well done.

    How's your brother doing?

    Hi All,

    Brother is doing great. It was not a heart attack, and they are doing tests on him, but whippeee, his heart is strong. So I will keep you posted. He has had all the bloods done, an ECG and about 50 million other things, but I am not sure what the outcome is yet.

    Hi Girlies & guys of course.

    Well, I lost 1/2 lb yesterday. Loosing on average 1 lb a week, course its week 6 and down 6. There is a part of me that would like more, but I was thinking half a pound a week is 24lbs a year, that'll do me, as I have 25lbs to loose.

    Wish me luck.
