Hi jenni :)

dont fret mate, just think about how great you will look once those kiilos start melting away! if you ate the fundraisers then you probably wont enjoy them anyway so whats the point? you CAN do this, take it one day at a time and we are all here for support! hugs!

Oh Jenni, I know that feeling very very well. Hang in there and try not to give in to those cravings. If you can get through today, then come tomorrow, you'll be another day closer to reaching your goal and imagine how good you'll feel about yourself when you're there!

Can you snack on some vegie sticks or a piece of fruit? I know it's not quite the shame but once you've eaten something healthy, hopefully those naughty thoughts will have subsided.

I have felt exactly the same this afternoon. Today is the second day back on track after my terrible weekend and I've found myself thinking about 'bad' food. So, I have been saying out loud to myself, "No, you don't need that Hayley. You want to be thin by New Year's Day. Don't do it, it's not worth it." Sounds stupid to be talking to myself but it's worked so far and I have not slipped up yet, which is good. For me, saying it out loud reinforces that I really do want to reach goal and soon, so it puts me off having the naughty food - don't know if that makes sense to you at all?????

Stay strong, you can do it. We're all here if you need to chat again.

Stay strong Jenni...I know it is hard, but don't give in to your cravings. Probably the best thing to do is have a fun size chocolate if you are craving that bad...often when we deny ourselves things in our diet is when we crave them most, but if you start and control portions by just having a small one (pop it in the freezer and suck on it) it will help not to build up the craving and then act on it later in a way you will regret...you can do this and you can get through it!!

Hi Jenni how are you doing?

Don't feel discouraged - I think the first few days are the HARDEST! You just have to get your mind off the diet!

See if you can do some exercise, put up a nice motivational quote by your computer, chew some sugarfree gum, anything to get through the first week, and you will find it easier from there. I promise! :D

Hope you are feeling better today! You can do it!

Hi Jenni, Mandie is right! the first week is always a horror. its so much easier to get motivated after you've been going for a little while and gotten results! But keep your eyes on the prize, girl!

and if it helps... if the charity chocs are those mixed fun size ones? ... they usually arent very...umm... fresh? we had them at work and the chocolate was white (when it shouldnt be...)
Life is too important to be taken seriously!
