    I just took the dog for a walk and i could smell bacon,it made me feel very hungry,so i had tea and toast.I promised myself when i have lost 2 stone i would treat myself to a big bar of chocolate,i will be having that at the weekend,this is what i did when i gave up smoking,only i bought a nice watch when i had stopped for a month,i have set myself targets and each time i achieve one i will treat myself,the next target is to lose another stone then i will have fish,chips and peas from the chip shop.

    Healthy eating and willpower!
    good luck and well done for quitting smoking, it shows you have willpower, so now onto losing weight, i am sure you will be successful there too!

    Setting goals is the way to do it..i reward myself with non food treats though, as I am scared I wouldn't stop at ONE treat! ;)

    Keeping active in the evenings, helps me with hunger pangs..even a nice long bubble bath or an early night kills the pangs for me too :)

    Keep posting, you'll get lots of support on here!

    This is the first diet i have ever done,i am busy every night Monday to Friday i work nights.I have stopped smoking for two and a half years now,looking at your stats you are doing very well i hope i can match you.I think i would be quiet happy if i was 17 stone,if i do get to this weight i may try to loose another stone,will see how i do.
