    I was wondering what all you lovely folks do when you get cravings for food to help take your mind of the pesky munchies.


    I have a little notebook and every morning I put three things in the book for me to do that day if a craving comes over me.
    Today's says: hot bubbly bath or surf Minimims for 45 mins or sort through clothes and decide what clothes that are getting too loose and can go on ebay/go to the charity shop/go to the recycling dump.
    So in moments of boredom (which is when I usually want to overeat) I have something productive to occupy my mind.

    What do you do?

    I have a pamper session, manicure, pedicure etc. Or I will go out for a walk (if the weather is decent), if it isn't I may put some tunes on and have a dance in my living room.
    As long as you do something, the need for food will go.

    I try and pamper myself...yesterday I did hair colour, manicure, pedicure and fake tan...lol ....I am gonna run out of pamperings!! Thats a great idea about your little book to write things down in. I forget the little tasks and jobs that need doing and with a list to choose from it would be so much easier.
