    Chocolate releases endorphins (the feel good chemical) so makes you feel a little better. So does exercise but when you are feeling rotten which is the easiest feel good: chocolate? Or the gym?

    Sending you hugs, dont beat yourself up, you had a rotton time last week, funerals are so difficult and effect us in ways, sometimes we dont even realise. As you say, tomorrow is a start to a new week and you will have a better one.

    Good luck and take care Lisa x

    What Lisa said! Funerals are so hard and emotional, the diet can wait another week. WW, like SW, is about being slim and healthy for life so one week in the whole bigger picture is nothing really is it?!
