    Well after a few months of diet bouncing i've decided to come back.
    So since i've been gone i've done ww, w8, celebrity slim, ww and calorie counting and through out it all i've been miserable, i just can't get on with any diet other the sw. Wish i was one of these people that can last on a vlcd but alas i do need a bit of substance in my diet.
    So i'm joining a brand new group on monday, i decided i couldn't go back to my normal one, i've quit and rejoined so many times its embarrassing.
    Me and hubbs are having a experiment next week and we're going to buy our own food for a few weeks. Usually he buys it all and he has decided he's fed up of eating what i cook and wants to go back to freezer food and he says it will help with budget. Personally i'd rather have fresher stuff so this is the solution and other then fishfingers and wedges i don't eat alot of frozen food.
    I'm looking forward to restarting, i just need to keep reminding myself that its not going to fall off over night and its going to take a long time to lose half my body weight!

    You can do it Hun!!
    I shop in Asda, Lidl and Iceland and my food shop for 3 people comes to roughly £70 a week (at thats the most expensive shop), that includes pop and fruit and veg.
    Just look at your budget and then "shop around".

    Hi,

    Aldi is brilliant for fruit and veg.. I just go to the end display where they have the super 6, I stock up on those fruits and veg first, and work around them for meals and snacks. Tesco have 3 for 9eu meats (must have something similar in the UK) so get those, each pack should provide one meal provided you have loads of veg and potatoes or rice. Green days prove to be way cheaper as the staple foods like rice and potatoes and pasta feed alot for a little!

    good luck!!
