    ..of sorts anyway lol.

    Just had my dinner and despite feeling full (and leaving some on the plate as per Paul McKenna) when I was making a cup of tea I realised my mind was just wandering towards the "wonder what i can snack on" mode. As i have already used 2 snacks for today I only have one left and it really made me think about how, if not on this plan, I would have likely automatically grabbed something even though I had thrown food out cos i was full!!

    So cup of tea, no snack and maybe one later :)

    I had a moment just like this whilst preparing to cook dinner this evening.
    Starting gettings pans out, then started thinking 'hmm what shall i have a quick snack on whilst i cook?!'

    Luckily i thought about in time to stop it.

    Good thing that you realised what you were doing, keep it up.

    I'm like that too, after my tea I always want something sweet and usually reach for the chocolate even when I'm full up!

    I watched that Paul McKenna programme ^.^ I've been putting my knife and fork down after each mouthful, and eating in the dining room instead of in front of the TV, I think I might be a week behind you

    I love Paul mackenna's book, it really got me thinking about my eating habits, and stopped me feeling bad about myself all the time.

    Would reccomend to anyone!
