    Only lost 0.5lb this week - although dark chocolate is OK occasionally, I think I overindulged. And pinched a few of hubby's chips last night. Other than that, I've really tried hard - was hoping to get under 14st - my target is to get there by Wednesday. Fingers crossed......

    Kate, remember that a half pound down is far better than having put it on. I found in the early days of GL that I was being too generous with my portion sizes. For a couple of weeks then, I weighed everything to get a visual of the size of a portion. 25 or 30g of dry pasta is very very small!! In fact it was when I saw just how small the portions were on a GL regime that I started using more lentils, beans etc. These were more filling, more GL friendly and low in cals.
    Keep a diary of what you eat and maybe then review it to see what else you might add or take away the next week.
    I also drink plenty of water, at least three litres a day. It really helps keeping you feel full. Apparently 60% of the time we feel hungry it is actually water that our bodies are craving!
    Keep strong. Remember a little down is far better than putting it on.

    thanks Molly - you may have a point with the portion sizes - I tend to think 'is it GL' but not think about porton size too much. I'll keep an eye on it next week and see what happens.

    Hi Molly - this week is going much better thanks - on 30th November I was under 14 stone, so I hit my target. Haven't felt snacky this week, haven't bought - or wanted - any chocolate. My weigh day is tomorrow and I think I'm a couple of lb down, which is good going for me.
    Thanks for asking!
