LOL know exactly where you are coming from Mel, my hubby is also cooky. Although these days I often make my own dinners or have a much smaller serving of whatever he is making. He still doesn't quite get the idea that I only need about 1/2 what he has.

Food ideas look good and I agree with Ally watch the dressings and get low fat versions where you can. You can add more cereals to your breakfast and remember to stick to the 'serving size' for mueslis as they are often heavier than other cereals and have a higher fat content although if it's coming from nuts and seeds it will most likely be 'good' fats.

It's not an easy road Mel but worth it. Do the best you can girl, that's all you can ask of yourself. :D

Yeah you are right there Kim...I forgot about the muesli...I think it is something like 3 tablespoons (measured ones, not just a spoon from the drawer) is a serve of muesli where as it can range from 30g-45g for a serving of cereal...ooh and beware of the toasted mueslis... :wink:

Todays the today everyone. I am feeling quiet good about it. I have decided just to make small changes and continue this so its not all gone in one huge bang.

I also had a smoke this morning :oops: I am so scared I cant give up.. I am more worried about tommorrow morning when I wake up because I usually go outside and have one before I leave for work..

I thought it would be a good idea to start writing like a jounral on my weight lose and smoking progress. I started this, this morning, it felt great writing how I was feeling down, so hopefully I will keep that up.

Writing journals are a good way to keep you on track. You will also be able to see your weaknesses and strengths and anywhwere improvement is needed.

Best of luck.

hey mel

mick (fiance) has also given up smoking. this is his 3rd week and he has had 1 smoke in that time. he is on the patches though and he has found that he puts one on straight away in the morning when he gets up. thats the hard part he reckons are the mornings. he saw that ad where the woman is feeding her hubby who has had a stroke and how he has a daughter and stuff and he said that really hit home to him. no other ad or picture has ever done that but he knows he doesnt want something to happen where he will leave me and heidi alone or have to deal with something like a stroke. he owes us more than that. put it this way, do you want to live a longer life with your hubby and see your children grow up? you CAN do this mate, try and suck on a mint or the vicks vapour drops are good, and keep yourself busy.

I have read this book which is really good, it called 'If not dieting then what' it is all about making lifestyle changes, I am also seeing a dietitian. The have studied this stuff and they know what they are talking about... You take your car to a mechanic if it is broken - why not try a dietitian for yourself... (Not saying you are broken :? )

Mine is really good, she's in Eltham Victoria if you are interested in her details...

P.S. try not to feel too bad, I fell bad for you and wish I could give you a hug... just by being on this forum you are taking a positive step to finding a healthy relationship with food. :)
