    Hi everyone,

    I was just curious as to what we all do for work etc ?

    I work in an office, and think it's a lot easier to be 'good' here compared to if I worked from home.

    Weekends are very difficult for me, I hear the cupboards calling as I type! lol

    Lol I'm the same Carol! Weekends are tough. I'm so good in the office during the week. I'm an engineer.

    I used to be a legal secretary - an ofice full of women, sat on their bums, results in much snacking!

    Now I am a student at college, and will be at uni for 4 years from September. Think the snacking/alcohol is the main issue there!

    It's nice to hear that I'm not the only one that struggles on the weekend lol

    Scottsblue, well done on your willpower through the day, I would really struggle.

    I just finished uni last year where I put on about 4 stone...too much of living the student life style me thinks (late nights, drink, more drink, and even more food)!:rolleyes:

    Now I'm working as a digital designer meaning I spend half my life in front of a computer, it's not that bad on the eating front but I hardly move from my desk except to eat or go loo...and it's long hours hence why I am still working :sigh:(well supposed to be..lol...oh well only half an hour more then I am free).

    I have two days off during the week and don't find my eating too bad when at home but I swear my mind translates 'weekend' as a time to let go by eating junk and drinking too much. This all means that I find myself in the gym at 9am on Monday trying to burn off what I gained during the weekend. I have been good lately but its pay day next week so we'll see.:rolleyes:

    No diet, just slimpods :)
    I've been off work due to illness for a long time, but am going to be a drama student in september, eek. So at the moment I have a lot of time on my hands to either eat, or exercise. Really, it's up to me to choose whether I am healthy and what I do with my time.

    Looking forward to september, though no doubt there will be many new challenges.
