Hi Dolly, Hayley D, other TF dieters and all the other lovely people who have been giving us so much support. I HAVE NOT ABANDONED THIS SITE AND I"M BACK!
I am finally back on line - My husband, son and I have all had the flu for the past week and a half. We're felling better but I'm still not completely over it. I wish I was, 'cos I'm so constantly tired and feel like I have no energy at all. I don't remember when I last felt this sick and it's not much fun.
My hubby has gone back to work today after a week off and I've finally found the time to jump back in to this forum. I have missed the daily communication and support and can't wait to get that back again.
Dolly, I read in another post that you are going off the TF diet and trying something new. How's that going for you? I hope all is well with that.
I haven't switched to the official TF site instead of this forum, 'cos the people here seem so much more supportive and this site works better for me.
Has anyone heard from Hayley D? I hope she's ok. I have not been following the TF diet for over a week now. I can't afford to buy more sachets and our circumstances at the moment (living with family and having no cash), really have negative impact on following any type of diet fullstop! I even have my treadmill advertised for sale at the moment, just to try and get some extra cash, but I'm really hoping no-one wants to buy it 'cos I want to keep it if I can.
When we move to Shark Bay, which will hopefully be in about 3 weeks, I intend on picking up the TF diet again and following it 100%. We will be in our own home, earning a regular income and therefore able to buy whatever food we want to and need.
Because we have no cash coming in at all at the moment, we're relying on my parents supporting us with food, which is very generous of them. The problem is that they are both emotional eaters or eat when they're bored and they are both terrible sweet and savoury addicts. They don't purchase much fruit or vegetables and they have so many tempting foods in the house: chocolate cakes, muffins, dougnuts, icecream, dips, biscuits, cheeses, creamy dinners, chips, heaps of rice and pasta dinners. This is why the TF diet is not practical for me at present. Once we're able to do our own shopping and we aren't bombarded with naughty foods, I will follow the TF diet and exercise daily, in order to drop the 23kg I need to.
I apologise if anyone thinks this is a cop-out but that's my situation at the moment and I'm being very honest about it. I am trying not to eat bad foods, which is difficult when that's all that's in the house and I am able to walk a little again, as my foot isn't as sore anymore.
So Dolly, if your're thinking of trying the TF diet again in the future, maybe you'd be interested in starting it agin with me in about 3-4 weeks, once I'm settled in Shark Bay? I'd really like to hear how your're going at the moment.
I'll be back again later to see how everyone's going.
