2.7kg by the 10th of May? That's achievable...go for it! Heck I just did 2.7kg in a week (ok - I know...blokes lose it easier)...but I'm sure that you'll be able to knock it off in just under a month without a problem. :D

Put your foot down - and go for goal! 8)

Easter treat...2.7kg to goal...Easter treat...2.7kg to goal...Easter treat...Easter treat...3.7kg to goal!!! :shock: :shock: :shock:

Here is what you do: Buy quality DARK chocolate. Eat a SMALL amount of it daily (there is no rule that says that it is compulsory to eat the lot in one sitting). Exercise that small amount off daily in extra exercise - which is very do-able. That way you will enjoy the Easter without whipping yourself over it.

As for the hot cross bun...some things are best left to others. Think in terms..."I've eaten my lifetime's quota of hot cross buns...I not that person any more - I choose healthy foods instead because I respect my body...and I'm trying to remove the lard of my hips!". :lol:

kiiimmmm :roll: :roll: why can't u just say yep eat it all & enjoy, will i feel better eating the chocolate - YOU BETCHYA!!!!! will my body like it - ABSOLUTELY!!! will the scales still be my friend - NO THEY FREAKIN WON'T!!!
you are right & i know it (unfortunately) i don't like dark chocolate its terrible - i did read one of your other posts where you say that real chocoholics will eat dark chocolate because its the chocolate not the sugar - so you mean to tell me all this time that i have been addicted to sugar - NEVER!!!! :lol: :lol: isn't it weird that one can devour a whole block of Cadbury chocolate or the like yet if you read how much sugar was in there you would not be able to sit down and eat the equivalent amount of sugar in a bowl.

Mixed nuts & extras??? Yes or no.
I brought brazil nuts, almonds, sultanas, pepitas & sunflower seeds.
i made up 1/4 cup (3 brazil nuts, 5 almonds, little amt sultanas because of sugar content, pepitas & sunflower seeds) - question: is this healthy for u. Im looking for snacks i can leave in my car & eat in between my jobs i dont always have time to stop & have lunch some days i dont eat until say 2ish & by then im famished & grab the sugary stuff, bikkies, bread & honey or toast u get the picture.

Personally (and this is personally, I could be wrong), I would be going for a good amount of natural sugars (ie, fruit - sultanas are great or fresh fruit, whatever takes your fancy and protein (a small tin of canned salmon or tuna? The nuts probably have good protein in them as well) and a small portion of carbs. I always found when I ate this sort of combination in the middle of the day, it curbs a lot of those afternoon cravings and gave me a good amount of energy to get through the rest of the day :)

Shelley has the right idea. Buy those little packets of sultanas. If the inner miser lives in you, you may want to do what I do. Save the small empty packets and buy the big economy bag of sultanas and refill the packets. :shock: :lol: Good natural sugar in a moderate dose.

A handful of almonds is good. About ten to a handful.

An apple, orange or a banana are great for quick energy to get you through the day.

Make sure you always lay a good foundation to you day by making sure you have a very good breakfast. If you are going to overdo any meal...this is the one to do!

The important thing about snacks is to watch out for "bracket creep". It is very easy to over snack - so be vigilant.

Let's talk about milk chocolate vs dark chocolate. The reason why the dark chocolate is so bitter (are you listening Diva?) because it has been stripped of the sugars and fats that we usually find in milk chocolate. I use to be a three teaspoon of sugar per cup of tea guy. To me then...that was what tea tasted like...not sweet but like proper tea. I stopped putting sugar in my tea. At first, the taste was overpowering and not enjoyable at all but I got use to it in a shortish time...then it started to taste like proper tea. The interesting thing is that once weaned off sugar in tea - you can't go back! Just sipping a tea with any sugar in it makes you feel really sick. It is so SICKLY SWEET that it is revolting. It is the same with chocolate. Once you have developed a palate for quality dark chocolate you will not want milk chocolate at all. It will simply no longer taste like chocolate but only of it's key ingredients - sugar and fat...and it will be sickly to you. Also experts advocate the health benefits of moderate dark chocolate consumption...none are leaping to the defence of milk chocolate!
