Hi jackie and the rest of u supportive guys!
thanks for such a detailed reply full of motivational tools which were so helpful! i've just finished my first week and haven't had another blip (touch wood) and finding it a little easier although because i'm a teacher, i'm still drooling over the smell of food from the canteen but i feel just a little stronger to resist the urge! good for you that u've managed to stick this through. You're right there are sooo many inspiring pics that i was amazed to see. I just hope that fairly soon we can all be on there too. I honestly think that this site is the best ever equivalent to chocolate cake because everyone is soo supportive and welcoming and i'm certain that if it wasn't for this i would've relapsed by now... Anyway i'm finding that a little exercise is keeping my hunger pangs at bay and listening to music is a good way of staying motivated for me because it gives your mind a chance to wonder off and imagine yourself what you look like as a slimmer you aswell as making the urge to eat a little easier.
