    being quite a new CD-er i was wondering if there were things that people do to keep their minds off food or keep themselves busy, ive started taking really long bubble baths with a good book and having early nights. anyone else got any ideas? xx

    Going to bed the instant I feel tired and its after 9pm :)

    My coke zero drinks and leaving my bit of chicken as long as possible haha. Mostly what keeps me going is... when I see my parents/people near my parents that havn't seen me in a while.. I wanna see their faces.

    A beauty regime! Never had one as such before, but now I will do my nails, massage bio oil into my skin, facials, hair masks, experiment with make up, look for the clothes i will be wearing when I am slim (specially undies!!), read books and talk to my daughter about all the nice holidays we will have when i can fit into a plane seat! If all that fails I just read the take away menu lol....

    I also clean my house, and I spend a lot of time on this Forum to keep my mind busy. I can not sit in the sofa and watch tv, because then I feel the urge to eat a lot of snacks. I also go for walks, when I am not feeling to hungry. I am on day 4 now. Day 2 and 3 was horrible!!! ;)

    I'm a bit of a weird one:wave_cry:

    I sniff DH's food, read take-away menus (yay I'm not alone), watch cookery programmes, until last night I watched Biggest Loser which actually became quite emotional!!

    I trawl websites for clothes I'm going to fit into and fantasise about my holiday at Christmas where I WILL be in at least a size 12 bikini.

    I am also an obsessive weigher, I jump on the scales in the morning, when I get home and at least 4 times before bed, more at weekends, after a pee, a number 2, you name it, I'm there (lol).

    I also read the books about what foods I can have when I get to move up the plans so that I'm prepared even though its a long way off.

    I'm into the baths and the pampering too! It's getting to the point of obsession - i spend all day looking forward to getting home, having a bubbly bath, getting me pj's on and pampering before bed!

    I'm spending a fortune in lush and boots at the mo!!

    well.. im quite addicted to the scales and that keeps me going if i get on the one morning and i've lost half a pound or so its my insentive to keep going.

    also i feel loads healthier. i chew gum if i get too hungry but generally i just eat if im hungry just make sure its salad or fruit that im snacking on.
