I am proud to say I didn't have a single one either. I really struggled though, I love chocolate so much! It was really hard mid afternoon but instead of giving in I went for a walk/run around the neighbourhood. I'm glad I did.

Ww pavlova sounds like a impossibility! What's in it - and what's it's calorie count? Greedy pav lover wants to know! :lol:

You are both doing so well. Being both so close to reaching goal and standing firm at this difficult time of the year just shows how much character you have. This last bit is so very tough but you are both doing it with style! 8)

Keep reaching for it - you are almost there! :D

I agree with Kim. Pavlova is too delicious not to be VERY bad for you! :lol: I'm intrigued though...

Good on you for resisting that chocolate, B! You're sooooo close! Keep that fire burning :)

ohhh look a gain of 1kg - again!!!!! this does your head in. it has to be the snacking. I am walking approx. 13,000+ steps a day (can't believe it) I feel absolutely great, I am over the moon with how I look, clothes are fitting me a lot easier but those damned scales don't want to move in the right direction. I lose a kg I put on a kg.

this week I am going to track everything that goes into my mouth to find out what's happening - I MUST be eating items and forgetting about it &by the end of the week - GOT TO STOP!!!!!

had to share..... last night I had homemade chicken parmigiana for dinner now had all intentions of cooking it in the oven, the family decided they wanted crispy skin so gave in. I cooked the chicken in light olive oil marg but bucket loads of it and boy oh boy oh boy when I put little pieces of the skin that had come off in the pan - oh myyyyy god the tastebuds thought they were at a disco - they luuuuvvved it, it was buttery, crunchy & oh so damn nice!!!! I devoured my piece and was nearly drooling at the taste - enjoyed every blissful mouthful. but did I stop there hell no!!!! to top it off (must have been the buttery taste) I devoured my son's half large cherry ripe easter shell - ahhhhhh heaven - stomach was bloated as hell but my mouth thought it was to die for. now lets talk about this morning - OH MY GOD I feel like absolute crap!!!!! my gut is heavy but empty at the same time if you get what I mean, my body is all jittery and very weak. I did 14645 steps yesterday, god I do not want to know how many steps I need to do just to work off what I devoured last night - itd probably be a bloody marathon.
recovery day today back to the fruit & vegies & a whole lotta walkin :roll:

It is all part of the learning process.

As you have discovered it is far easier not to start something than it is stopping once started! :shock:
One of thing things that helps me not to travel down that path is thinking about just how much exercise I need to do to burn off the extra calories if I do decide to indulge. My basic laziness then kicks in and I can tell myself it isn't worth it! :lol:

Interestingly, you've also discovered that this type of food isn't wholesome for your body - that it fills but doesn't satisfy and that what your body really wants these days is good healthy food. :D

Now walk that baby off...you ate it - now you own it! :shock: :lol:

And to terrify you for next time...marg is not very good for you, and evil if you heat it. It has a low heat point, so oxidises quickly - this leads to hydrogenated fats (and being marg, it already has those!) aka trans fats, and those babies are more difficult to burn than regular fat, go straight into plaque on your arteries, AND are inflammatory. Stick with a natural fat (olive oil, canola oil, and yes...even butter would be healthier!)

If you remember how evil trans fats are, it will also terrify you out of wanting any baked goods (cakes, pastries, biscuits) from places like coles or woolies, cause they use the cheap and nasty fats in their products!! (Umm, did I ever mention that fear was one of my biggest motivators??!!! :lol: )

Out of interest, how long do you think it takes you to 'recover' from feeling yuk after eating something bad? For me, it's usually three days, sigh. If only I'd remember that at the time! Funny how selective our memories become in the face of cravings.

Hi Tams, it usually takes me about 2 days to get back into things & feel good but that's only if I hit it hard (exercise & food). I know what you mean about the baked goodies in woollies & coles they look so tasty especially when you go in the shop first thing in the morning and you can smell them cooking - drool drool drool but yes when you remember back to how you felt last time you ate them you quickly get over the smell.

woohoo loss of 1.4kg this week thank god that parmigiana didn't bite me on the butt afterall - I really thought it would have. learnt that lesson never again!!!! have had the recipe books out ready for the new week going to try new recipes to spice things up a bit and get out of the boring same ole same ole. fitted into a new pair of black slim jeans that I brought from target straight off the rack - cannot believe it, so I've been walking round with a huge grin on my face all day - its an awesome feeling when you can see the results you are working so hard for.
