    Why do I get these through my door when I'm trying to watch my weight, and take control back of my health. I'm guessing it's a test.

    I can't stop reading them. Wouldn't be so bad if I could just throw them in the recycling. I reckon they've checked and seen I've not bought anything for months lol.

    Whereabouts in Scotland are you? I'm in Angus.

    So it's not just me then lol. I thought it was a sign (hence I read through all the menus to make it a harder test) ;)

    Mrs B I'm actually not far then, but I do spend a fair amount of time down in the central belt.

    I find I go through all of them in detail, even when I'm out for coffee have to look at the menu on table but I realise what I would order and find that I'm quite happy with my americano and without the cake!! :)

    when I get them I look them pver for the healthiest option, pretending I am in maintenance. Then bin them
    Hopefully I will get in practice for the future (instead of going for the fattiest grossest option)

    I look through them - being veggie, I tend to pick one of the healthier options anyhow (I'm just an overeater)....but it's silly of me to look through. The leaflets I got today said if you spend a tenner you can get 4 free pieces of garlic bread....so I even added up the cost to make sure it came to £10 (and it didn't, so I added more on to my imaginary order).

    Interesting ideas about the no takeaway leaflets, and no junk mail. I'd prob go for no junk mail simply because I don't like ppl to know about the diet cos I get embarassed for some reason. But the other sign would be great if I had the guts :)
